Pine Trails ... Sans Pines

Pine Trails ... Sans Pines

Well the PEG Pine trails are lovely of course...  but sometimes the pines that line the trails tend to hide the scene...  fine if you are at ground level, inhaling all that wonderful pine scent..   but not so good if you want to see what is going on from above.


So I decided to whip up some 'Sans Pine' Pine trails... in LE.


Of course if you take all the pines out it looks a little bare...




So let's compromise... mix and match, the originals with the sans pine trails..   we get the best of both worlds!

There is another set!  All this freaking time! 
I never knew!  No one told me!

*A slight confession ... 

I have made a discovery...   all this time I have been using the "Pine Trails" which are of course lined with ....   wait for it ...  pine trees...

...and when I saw Paeng's trails, which looked remarkably like the pine trails but with out the pines...    I assumed that he had just whipped off the pines for his new lake resort set in LE... so you could see the lodges for the trees...    but no....!

There is another set!  All this freaking time!  I never knew!  No one told me!


I have just discovered that there are 'Mountain Trails' on the PLEX...    they look just like the Pine Trails, because well...   they are...  they just don't have any pines...  so of course Pegasus had to give them a fancy new name...   Mountain Trails.    I mean you can hardly call them Pine trails if they don't actually have pines on them...  that would be silly.

Of course they are in completely different folders in the PLEX...   the Pine Trails are in the PEG Trail Parks & Woodlands section...
...and the Mountain Trails are in the MTP section...

*You all have no idea how many PMs Paeng and I have just exchanged trying to sort this mystery out....

Edit:  Hrumph...   Paeng just had the cheek to tell me that he was trying to tell me all that for the last three PMs he sent...   and then he had the afrontory to suggest that the pine trails are old fashioned...  and the the mountain trails are slightly different...   well we will see I am putting that folder in ...   so there.     :: sniff ::

Edit edit:  Hrumph...  yes yes...  I have just tried these in game...  they are slightly 'dirtier'...   and you have to take the Pine Trail_306.dat  file out to get them to work...   but they update the pine trail lots automatically...

...and incidentally they are still called pine trails in the game on the query screen...   not mountain trails...

Stomps off to think of something to do with the four LE files he made....  maybe a narrower trail...   yahoo_think
