Six new terrain paints for TS2, converted from TS3. I really like using a variety of terrain paints when building, particularly for patio areas since it's free on an unoccupied lot.




Found in Build / Terrain Paints for §1.

Additional Credits:
Mootilda - for LotAdjuster that now frees me to create terrain paints without worrying about blue flashing terrain.

This is great, I had an idea to do something like this as the game lacks in quality and varied terrain paint.

This is a very great idea. I'm beginning to grow less fond of the flooring outside and it makes a yard look less realistic sometimes.

One of my FAVE things about TS3 base game was how realistic everything looked from build mode, in comparison with TS2's stuff. You don't know how much I love this beyond words.

Thank you so much!

Gorgeous! My game desperately needs more terrain paint. I think the flagstone one is my favourite, but it's close to a six-way tie. Thank you!

I love these from the Sims 3, but my laptop doesn't run it well. And Sims 2 is my favorite. ;3
Thanks so much for these!
