This live Journal seems a bit death/undiscovered, but that does not stop me from creating stuff!
As I mentioned in a earlier post I was making a new version of the default neighborhood textures. With some helpful feedback I finally finished the project. I changed some files from my previous default replacements, but most of them are totally redone (a base game compatible version is included!).
I proudly present: Version 2.1 !
Important: if you want to be able to see all the neighborhood flora from lots you have to use the cheat: boolProp dontmergenhflora false. It is recommend to type this cheat in your UserStartup.cheat file in the Config folder.
Some before-after pictures, Summer & spring pictures:
Winter with snow:
Some trees do not get a snow color as you can clearly see in this picture without custom textures (the standard unmodified version of the game):
I am afraid I can not do anything about that..
Here is a extra snow cycle from lot view in the Any Game Starter (1,2,3).
An extended read me with further details is included in the download; the files are Base Game compatible! I used 7zip to compress the files which is supported by Winrar.
[I fixed most of the floating leaves. A darker Version is now available. You can mix the darker files with the V2.1 normal version]
Pictures of darker version: 1,2,3,4.
