September 9th 2018 : SEASONS UPDATE !!! ( last one until a long time ) VERY IMPORTANT ! ALL textures have been UPDATED. You have to replace the old files with the new ones in order to get everything working fine with Seasons

FINALLY WE FOUND ALMOST ALL THE SEASONS TEXTURES

09/09/2018 : - We have added the date to the updated files : 03092018 <--- Time for you to UPDATE :D

- Urban Seasons files are included ! "k-hippie-k-terrain-new-seasons-urban-replacement-ea-03092018.package"

- Some color adjustments have been done here and there.

- ATTENTION : For those who use the 44 Floorpaints Replacement Mod : there will be an update as soon as we have removed the specular and color calls. ( the grass files make a call to an overlay which gives a much too bright green to the texture in Spring )

Of course I do not have to tell you this is a work in progress but always keep your files updated !



I hope you already updated your files since the last update was a process of cleaning the mod and avoid the black texture all around the Sims Worlds … We targeted 2/3 files which caused a bug in San Myshuno. Well, we are still not 100% sure about these 2/3 files but we think they are maybe depreciated since Seasons, or because one specific file is called, if it is not a Seasons file, when a game is launched in the Business District of San Myshuno, or when you want to send your Sim there : conflict! :/

We tested much more than once San Myshuno, and we think the problem is solved now <--- time for you to send feedbacks :D

But let’s enjoy today because as we found most of Spring and Autumn terrains textures, this update is going to be very interesting.

202 Terrains Replacement ... A beloved challenge idea we had to update especially since the last Cats & Dogs Expansion ( November 2017 ) So, now, this thread will be only dedicated to the Base Game Terrain files ( this includes Willow Creek, Oasis Spring and New Crest )

The expansion Worlds Terrain Files will be covered now in a brand new thread : "303 Terrains Replacement - ALL Worlds" : here!
The expansion Worlds Terrain Files have been deleted by MTS. They are available on Tech Hippie - 303 Terrains Replacement - ALL Worlds. Sorry for the inconvenience.

As the Sims 4 game is growing bigger with expansions, we think it will be easier for us to split the subject of game terrains for future expansions and versions: one for the base game and another one for the worlds expansions.

What's up and new with this big update?

We reviewed all terrains files from the ground. We kept most of them, we updated some ( many ) and for all: we tried to modify as close as possible to the Maxis color palette files. Once this done with this update, we could consider doing more Terrains replacement in different deviations such as Autumn colours, Darker palette, etc ... We shall cover the subject later
.

Will it overkill your game?

Not at all. Most EA files for Worlds are 1024px, we used the same and we changed/modified the textures. This is why it is a replacement
.

Ok. Still, doesn't look quite the same outside your backyard than in the park next door.

We know. Maxis doesn't manage terrain files the same way everywhere. Here is our hypothesis: outside your playground, there's a grid. The game is applying the files on a grid which seem to stretch the same file perhaps 4/6/8 times larger than on the playfield. We work hard to level the differences between the limits of your lot and the rest of the world so everything is harmonious and seamless as possible. Unless we get a World Builder Tool or a confirmation of our hypothesis, this is the best we can do ... Well maybe not the best of the best but this is a stable work still in progress
.

Let's move on ... What is this about?
This is indeed a multipart set :

.
- Basegame Grass Terrains Replacement ---> Work in progress for Season Expansion

They override some of the games files. They replace everything terrain files based game. Is it green? Is it grass? BAM! It's k-hippied. No question asked (xx)

We couldn't do it with that vomito green since the beginning. Grass, a real one. One you wish Pets was released so your little pets could happily roll in it :D
You can feel the grass under your pixelated feet, don't you? You can smell the fresh perfume of summer or spring ... Grass to take over everywhere!

.
- Basegame Sand and Earth Terrains Replacement

All that is a bit sandy, a lot of sand or totally beach. We never thought there will be so much sands in that game when green is all over the place. With this replacement with thoughts for the players who like to play in Oasis Spring, or on the small island of Windenburg. You all deserve a real impression of sands, not just a vague beige colour.

.
- Basegame Rock Terrains Replacement

These files will change the look of all rocks that are terrains but not the one in Build mode. We will do them too at a later date ( but soon ) They will give a better look at all that is rock or cliff. The textures might be a bit stretch, we respected EA files of 1024x1024 but we are not quite pleased with the result. As always, it's a work in progress ...

.
- Basegame Urban Terrains Replacement

If vomito-green was too much for us, can you imagine how it felt to have those streets with some grass without our grass? Errr ... it was terrifying but we found all of them. Good thing there were precursors! Evil laugh ...
.

- ABOUT Basegame Floorpaints Replacement

Maxis use a bit everywhere in constructions. So, to avoid double files, we re-did the whole thing.
Check The 44 Maxis Floorpaints Replacement post for the floorpaints EA use to paint the worlds. recommended


Be the master of your terrains and lots!

Please note, we will update as we go for this set
Don't hesitate to ask questions and remember, replacements won't overload your game. We have tested all this for weeks and we got no problem at all

Since you can't have our files with another creator's files replacement, here is a pro tip: put all the files in a folder inside your Mods folder. When you'll wish to change, you'll know where to look

These files override the game files, and work fine in game
