How to create default replacement neighborhood terrain?
#1 26-04-2016 
Hello all! I have been scouring the web for a tutorial on how to do this, with no luck. What I would like to do is replace the default desert neighborhood terrain with curiousb's dirt terrain (I suffer from the infamous dirt/concrete terrain problems!) and replace the Maxis roads on the new terrain with dirt roads. So, kind of a two-part project. I can't seem to find any directions on how to get started...can someone give some tips or point me in the direction of a tutorial? Thanks so much!

I use Mootilda's Hood Replacer.

Here's what I would do if I wanted the exact same neighborhood switched from desert or dirt to grass. First I'd create a custom neighborhood, usiing the exact same template of the neighborhood in question, but with grass.

Exit out of game.

Open up Mootilda's Hood Replacer.

Replace the current desert neighborhood with the grassy one. It's extremely simple and intuitive.

Btw, I use this default to have realistic greener grass, which is really nice:

I'm not familiar with curiousb's street adjustments, but I checked that site.
He/she says "If you downloaded this mod prior to 22/04/12, then please delete those files and download the updated files below the cut. After over a year of working on it, I think it's about time to share that grass default terrain replacement, amongst others..."


Sorry, that is a members only option
