About This File

Let it snow, Let it snow... Let it Snow!! The PEG Snow Mod has been completely revamped and updated to turn your cities into Winter Wonderlands. All the old separate mods have been updated and combined into a single download that will install everything into a single folder. Just move that folder in or out of your Plugins folder to turn the snow on or off. Everything is automatic. No need to bulldoze or replop. Just install the mod, fire up the game... and see your cities instantly transformed with a completely new look.


There's plenty of new mojo under the hood, Boys & Girls. Not only has the number of converted textures tripled, the mod now turns off or changes many props and lots to snow covered versions. Trees get covered in snow, ponds freeze over to ice... and seasonal flowers and shrubs go away until you decide that Winter is over and Spring should be sprung. 


A large part of the mod is dedicated to converting MTP material. But if you do not use the MTP, fear not. Everything is in separate files and you can easily remove any part of the mod that you don't need or want to use.


The mod focuses on soft textures (grass & dirt, etc) and leaves most of the hard surfaces (concrete & asphalt, etc) as they are to create that "snowed on but shoveled" look. The game will remain fully playable as you can still see roadways and other transit routes... and undeveloped zones will still be visible.

Lets unwrap this puppy and see what you get:

1.  The Main Mod.
Contains  snow versions of the game default textures and terrain textures.

2. The MTP Patch Mod.
Contains snow versions of custom MTP textures. Also includes some extra mojo to modify certain MTP props and lots.

3.  The Flora Fix.
Turns off various game-default flowers you normally wouldn't see in the snow. Changes bushes to snow covered versions. Also converts game-default trees to winter versions; pines to snow covered pines and leafy trees to snowy leafless winter trees. Palm trees are converted to snowy pines.

4. Snow Covered Trees.
Turns the PEG Pines into snow covered versions. Separate files for both the old and new  versions of the trees.

5. Seasonal Tree Patch.
Forces the PEG Seasonal Trees to remain in their winter state.

6. Mayor Flora Patch.
Hides many of the PEG Mayor Flora menu ploppable props, such as super-detailing terrain textures, that do not look good with snow. It also hides the menu icons so you can't accidental plop what you can't see. 

7. MTP Rural Avenue, Road & Street  Patches.
Separate patch files to make the MTP Rural Avenue, Road & Street mods blend better with the snow.

8. MTP Plaza Patch.
Replaces the lot-sized plaza models with snow-covered versions. Iced over fountains, snowy trees & planters. Even the fence posts and rails are topped with snow.

9. OWW2 Patch.
Converts the trees and parkways of the OWW2, Marina and Seaport Village lots to snow covered versions.

10. Diagonal Network Patch.
Converts the straight sections of diagonal roads and avenues to not have the "zig-zag" staircase appearance when lots or zones are placed next to them.


* Please consult the included readme file for more detailed information about each file included in the mod. 

* Please note that the Snow Mod creates a snow-covered effect by converting game ground textures to snow versions. While this mod converts all game-default and PEG custom textures to snow versions, it is not possible to also include snow versions of custom textures provided by other developers. However, the required base & overlay textures required to convert other textures can be copied from the mod and used by any developer who wishes to make compatible snow versions of their own textures. 

** This file has no direct dependencies. However...

the MTP patches require the installation of the
various MTP components they modify.

Well, I guess I traded one problem for a new one. I have found out the problem was that I had a terrain mod installed and I had forget to uninstall it. The new problem? My game now crashes. So I went and deleted both the terrain mod and this one and I had the same result. I then reinstalled the original terrain mod and everything was fine. Anyone got a fix for this?

@Jezus53: Well, if your game crashes without mods, but is "stable" with mods, then you should take a good hard look at your plugins - there must be some leftovers somewhere which cause the crash (meaning you have probably not deleted all components of some mod(s))...

Jezus53: A proper terrain mod should not crash the game when it is removed. I don't know which one you are using. Try posting the problem at the SimPeg site and we'll try to help you figure it out.

Um... I'm kind of new and I would really like to download but whenever I click on the "download" icon (on the left below the pictures) nothing happens. I'd be really happy to have some help, make some new friends, and eventually be able to create my own UBER mod. Please help! Thanks! 8)

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

      Hi there,
       
      i am looking for someone who can mod the buoy out of the ferry lines. As i am into Boats and Marina stuff - i am in preparation of turning a lot Boat models into ferry vehicles - so it is possible to simulate kind of lofe 6 action in your citymarina/bay (boats going out and in). But when the buoys appears - you will have the harbour full of them when adding mre and more lines ...
      so dear promodder - do you think it is possible to delete them (buoys)  from the lines ? Alternative could be to make hem smaller to tiny ...
       
      thx

      Please note as it was discussed under the PLEX support thread, this file has been uploaded on behalf of Pegasus. It was not available anymore due to the the demise of SimPeg. All the works in this download were created by Pegasus.
      The PEG CSK2 Locks have been updated for use with the PEG PPond Canals and ploppable water. This new lot is a "one lot fits all"... in that it can be used both with the canals and the PPond ploppable water.
      But wait... There's more.  This is also a "2fer" lot... as in 2 for 1... as the same lot now replaces the CSK2 Ocean Lock as well. It can also be plopped along your coastlines and used with the PEG CDK3 & OWW2 coastal collection of lots. That's one less menu icon to scroll around looking for.  [YEA !!]

      * If you are not familiar with these Lock lots, they are used to allow your canals to change altitudes. The PPond ploppable water that is used to make lakes, rivers and streams has waterfall lots for that purpose. However, the Locks are the only viable & realistic way for a canal to traverse down a slope.

      The Lock uses timed props to create an animation effect. During the day, the Lock will change several times from being full to being lowered. Various river Scows will also appear in the Lock.
      Like the original, the Lock will automatically adjust to various heights of the slope. There's no need for precise terrain editing... although the area above and below the Lock should be level.
      The new Lock has been reduced in size to only 4 tiles deep... but it is still 2x tiles wide. The upper-level canal section on the original has been removed so the Lock is not limited to use only with the Canals... and it could also be used with any other type of ploppable water or canal style.

      * Please be sure to consult the Developer's Notes section of the included readme file for details on plopping and using this lot.

      Okay, so I've been working on this for a few months and I got some positive feedback on the Chat so I decided to ask the community what do YOU think of it?

    • It doesn't even look like a convention center. Looks like a building at a community college or a state university.
    • Wow, what a fantastic building! I like the intricate shapes of this one, and the many different areas. There are so many details to take in that it really takes a while to grasp the entire structure. I also agree that there's not much going in in terms of conference centres, so this really fills a gap. Kudos for all the reward modding too - I know that part is pretty tedious und ungratifying work (unless you're some sick masochist ). What I also like is how well the lot complements the building, and it acomplishes that with so few and so simple means. Just a few default overlays and props, and we have a lot that leaves nothing to be desired. The one tiny suggestion I have is that all your recent buildings have had their names (and, in cases like this one, also their function) baked into the model. This is not bad generally because it allows a better visual appearance, but sometimes it limits flexibility a bit. The building in question could totally double as a modern city college, for example, or maybe even as a university (not all modern universities are sitting on a lush campus, after all!), but then there's the "Convention Center" lettering in front. I guess it can be covered with cleverly placed flora props... Fun fact: I never knew that there was an Occupant Group "burning dude maker" - what the...???
    • Do we need to delete Oppie's and replace yours?   Ps. Thank you so much for revamping this amazing mod.
