The Mansion and Garden stuff pack included lots of fancy new stuff, including mowed grass! Not short grass, grass that has those lines on them like someone was hired to come and do it profesionally. I was excited to try it, but when I did, it looked blurry! I thought it was my texture settings, but alas- the default just looks blurry and unpleasant.

So I fixed it! It's no longer blurry or dark, it's brighter, healthier, and more freshly mowed!

This comes in both Horizontal and Vertical flavors. I tested with the AnyGame Installer and it works with the base game! So now any sims can have pretty pretty lawns even without all the rest of the mansion and garden accoutrements.

Note: When using the ground cover, it seems to treat the edges strangely. If you don't make sure to absolutely cover everything, your fancy grass will look spotty or like it is dying in some areas. This is normal and not my fault- just be thorough with it, or you'll get strange splotches!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I'd never really noticed how wide the strips were on the original before.
Nice work.
