These are texture overrides for the two cherry trees in non-editable public spaces. I’ve just made them reference the textures of another oak tree instead.

You can see in the second picture that the trees still drop their floating pink leaves; I have no idea how to fix that and I’m not inclined to try. The cherry trees in the catalog are untouched so will still appear if they’re placed on lots, as you can see in the third picture.

You can use this with my No-Fade Trees and Streetlamps.

Update 1/24/16

I know that there are some cherry trees in Windenburg that need de-pinking, but I no longer have a Windows partition on my Mac, and am not sure when/if I will be able to update this mod. If someone else picks it up, I will post a link here.

Update

Someone reported that the cherry trees were turning back to pink when they zoomed out. When I tested this, I raised the camera up as far as possible but the trees stayed green; since I couldn’t duplicate the issue, I thought it might have something to do with different graphics settings, and wasn’t sure what the problem was exactly or how to fix it. I’ve realized today that the trees were only turning pink when you move the camera back, as in toward the horizon line as opposed to toward the sky.

Anyway, I believe I have fixed that issue now, so I’ve updated the linked file. The new file has the same name so you can overwrite the old one. It’s probably not something you would have noticed in regular gameplay though, so if it hasn’t bothered you yet, then I wouldn’t bother redownloading!

Thank you so much for this! The pink trees really bugged me - they made the world look so plastic. Can't wait to try this override.

I'm not sure I can duplicate this issue. I moved the camera as far away as I could, and panned around a bit, but they didn't turn pink. Perhaps it has something to do with different graphics settings, but I'm not sure. Sorry!

You do understand cherry trees have pink leaves in autumn?

I am not saying this is bad since they are in a "permanent bloom" but considering no seasons and how the tree is mostly identified by its pink leaves I am not surprised they decided to make their leaves pink instead of green.

...no. As someone who lives in cherry farming territory, the leaves do not turn pink. Some varieties may turn dark shades of red. The pink in the game is supposed to be the cherry blossoms in bloom. This happens in early to late April in the Northern hemisphere (weather variation and latitude will affect this.) If you want them to look more like true cherry trees, this mod will get you close. The leaves need to be darker green, almost holly green. Hope this helps!

Haven't played the game in 6 months (yes, those pink trees bugged me big time - amongst other things) and I am overjoyed at getting rid of them at last. :D

Default WOW thanks for this MOD
I refused to use Willow Creek on account of those Horrific Ugly Purple/Pink Trees that pained me right in the optic nerve.

Coolspear1 just told me of your mod and therefore you, my dear Modder, personally just handed me back half of my Sims 4 Game play space.



Willow Creek is soooooo Beautiful now ,,,, Sigh....
Super happy indeed.
