About This File

Do you use a Sidewalk mod that does not come with a Maxis Texture Replacer? Have you made your own custom sidewalks and want to extend them from the transit networks to your Lots? If the answer to either question is yes, you'll want to click download.

In essence this file is a tutorial with step by step instructions (Word Document) from simply replacing the three default Maxis plaza textures (10 minutes work) to complete removal of all of the default Maxis textures that use the Grey, White and Pink colour scheme.

============================================================================================================

NEW OPTION (MTRDK_Automated_Preview.zip) - JUN 2015

Due to a new technique, proposed by Rivit,, it is now possible to automate creating the textures in this set. You'll need the latest version of GoFSH to process them. If you select to download the file MTRDK_Automated_Preview.zip, you will find in the archive a texture repository with all the required files, including a script for use with GoFSH. For now, I will keep the old files available in case anyone prefers that. More information on the automated texture creation for SC4 can be found here if you are interested.

=============================================================================================================

Absolutely no modding experience is required to follow along, and included is my MTRDK (Maxis Texture Replacement Dev Kit) which includes pre-modified files that make creating replacements very easy. The screenshots above show the final results of this process with Paeng's Sandstone textures. This mod is an extension of my tutorial here on Sidewalks and how to get the most out of them.

You will need SC4 Tools to follow along (and a photo editor for the optional final part).

Hopefully someone will find this useful.
