Happy new year! This is an experimental mod I made with the help of ammar2, who did some amazing work decoding the effects.package file (https://gist.github.com/ammaraskar/...11be62999854194). As far as I can tell, the addition of new effects to the game is somewhat of a new modding style, so I'm adding a tutorial on how I made this mod so others can make more like this and do some even more amazing things with the work Ammar did.

This item is a new neighborhood effect that works the same way as the basegame farm fields and flowers, which gives a localized heavy snow look that wraps to the neighborhood terrain and can layer with other terrain covers.

Install instructions:
There are two files included in the archive:
  • nhoodsnow.package goes in the downloads folder and contains the actual neighborhood deco object and the texture for the new effect.
  • main.fx goes in a folder called "Plugins" in your install location (for UC that is C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSBin). If there isn't a folder called Plugins you will need to create one there.
