About This File
Please Note: This is an old mod that has somehow disappeared from the STEX... although the several add-ons for it are still here. The new MTP Snow Tree Mod is in beta. It will be released shortly and it wouldn't have been very useful if you couldn't have snow under the snow covered trees.
** A new collective Snow Mod is also under development.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow... This is the first of several mods that will turn your normal temperate climate cities into beautiful, snow-covered Winter Wonderlands. Like similar artic or snow mods before it, this mod changes all terrain at all elevations into snow-covered terrain. It also replaces all of the game's default lot textures into matching snow.
This is the primary mod of the collection. Others will soon follow that will complete the winter theme. Included in this mod are new textures for the terrain & replacements for all game default lot base and overlay textures... excluding hard surfaces such as concrete and asphalt which are used for walkways and parking lots, etc. The mod also includes a new texture set for the streets to insure that the snow extends all the way up to the street so no sidewalks or grassy areas will show.
Highly recommended for use with this mod are the Swamper77 Street and Road Sidewalk Mod and the Sidewalk Avenue Mod . These mods, when used with the Snow Mod, will allow the snow to cover all sidewalks and grassy areas along the roads & avenue so that the snow covers all the way to the asphalt.
These are great mods that you may wish to keep installed all of the time. However, all that is required to enhance the snow mod is the RoadsNoGrass.dat file from the Street & Road Sidewalk mod... and the Uni-Density Avenues.dat file from the Sidewalk Avenue Mod.
You may choose to install only these two files in the Snow Mod folder so all snow-related mods can be easily uninstalled at anytime by simply removing the Snow Mod folder from your Plugins folder.
Some of the other mods in this Snow Mod collection include:
The PEG Snow Mod - MTP Patch... which replaces all custom MTP textures with matching snow textures. This allows all the MTP lots to blend ion with the snowy terrain.
The PEG Snow Mod - Seasonal Tree Patch... which is a small file that forces the seasonal trees to remain leafless and "wintry" all year long... or as long as the mod is installed.
The PEG Snow Mod - Pine Tree Patch... which covers all the PEG Pine Trees with snow to match the winter wonderland. It also works with the PEG God & Mayor Mode Pine Trees as well.
** All Snow Mods are automatic and require no in-game changes to your cities. Once installed, everything will change instantly & automatically. Once removed, your cities will fully revert back to their sunny selves with no trace of snow or other effects from any of the mods.
Like other snow mods, these terrain changes are year round. You can easily change back to normal terrain at any time just by uninstalling the mod. No lots are ever changed in any way. These mods can not be used with any other terrain mods. However, they are fully compatible with any PEG Rock mod or any water color/texture mod.
** This mod has no dependencies. **
