One of the things I have done since I first began playing the game is pausing it before I save and quit. It is my belief that if animations aren't running when the lot loads it will load faster. Maybe I'm crazy but I still do it until this day. With that being said, I like knowing my game is paused but at the same time the red lines just ruin pictures taken with image capture software such as Fraps.
This is my solution:
- Minimal UI change that is noticable, yet not blaringly obvious.
- White is as neutral a hue as any, I like to think of it as time is frozen.
- Lose the total border, but instead focus on the corners and lose the rounded corners.
- Two new icons are used, which are found here -> Mono Icons - Tutorial 9
For those who don't want any lines at all there is the "No Red Pause Lines", but now dear Simmers you have another option and like all great mods it's a simple find it and delete it and it's gone, no changing important files that might cause the game to crash. We all know what that is like
