This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Looking for a way to make your farm have a more realistic feel?
Tractor Tracks terrain paint might be just the thing. Tractor Tracks Terrain paint is uses the Base Game Smarter Starter Soil as a base. That means the two terrain paints will work together like twins.
You can soften your tracks or break them up for touch of extra realism. Add some stray grass on the side of your field and a tractor, and you are closer than ever to feeling like a real farm owner.


Tractor Tracks Terrain paint is found in Build under Terrain Paints.
The price is : 0 Simoleons

Hello! For some reason, the tracks run diagonal to the gridlines.

Hi,

I'm attaching a picture, below, of the tracks with the grid lines in place, so you can see the the position of the tracks. As straight lines, they may look like they are horizontal or vertical depending on how you orient your screen. If your screen happens to be on a diagonal they will appear diagonal.

I apologize, I should've included a picture in my first post. This is what I mean when I say it runs diagonal.

Hi,
Thanks for the image. That helped a lot.
I looked up your problem and discovered that, apparently, the terrain paints in some of the Windenburg lots run diagonally.
Here is a link to that post: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Repor...ed/td-p/6788560
I wish I could help, but it seems the problem rests with the way EA made these lots.
The tractor tracks will, however, work properly in the other lots, and towns.

Best Wishes,
Snowhaze

The tractor tracks are perfect, I'll just have to remember not to have farms in Windenburg anymore! Thank you so much for creating them and helping me with the issue C: Do you know if you're going to create more farm-y stuff?

Hi,
As of now, I'm planning to make at least one more farm item. I just started working on it, so it will be a bit before it's done.
