Sul-sul!
I'm back with another replacement. This time, I created an override for the snowflakes that appear in-game, since I have always thought that the original ones were too blurry and that they didn't fit with the cartoony aesthethic of TS4. The ones that I've made have the shape of a snowflake and they are more cute (in my opinion ).



CONFLICTS
It will conflict with any mod that modifies the appearance of the snowflakes.

This is something that I've wanted to do for a long time, so I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!

Are you going to do something with rain as well?

I've searched the rain texture but I can't find it. I wish I could replace it too but I'm not sure if I will be able to do it. :/

The HQ version uses higher resolution textures, as you can see in the first picture the image is sharper.
The standard version uses a lower resolution texture, so it will be blurrier but it still looks good in-game, you can see it better in the 5th picture bottom right.
Enjoy

Super cool! I watched the video you attached, the snow looks so real! Can't wait to try this in-game. I wish all the rain was snow. It rains entirely too much!!

Wow, this is gorgeous. I have a Sims 2 style override because Sims 4's snowflakes are HUGE but this looks to be a lot nicer.

This is super cute, and I loved seeing the delicate snowflakes rather than blobs. Thanks!

This is one of those mods that I didn't really think I NEEDED but I thought, "Why not, it'll still look nice!" but WOW I would never want to go back to the vanilla snow now! It's so wonderful seeing these lovely flakes fall and I just wanted to say thank you so much for such a quality render of them while not impacting how well the computer itself can run the game! Great job and thanks again!

The default snow looks more like hail >.< they couldn't even have made it a simple asterisk, nope, blob it is. This looks so elegant!

For some reason this does not change the snowflakes at the top of the mountain. Otherwise it is wonderful!
