December 2, 2021 - Updated for Modern Menswear Kit
November 9, 2021 - Updated for Blooming Rooms Kit
October 5, 2021 - Updated for Incheon Arrivals Kit & Fashion Street Kit
August 27, 2021 - Updated for Industrial Loft Kit
July 22, 2021 - Updated for Cottage Living EP (brown is without a doubt the best color for it!!)

This mod returns all of your in-game pack icons to before the UGLY 2019 rebranding. See the screenshots of how they look in-game. All packs' icons after Island Living (aka all the post rebranding icons) were either created by myself in Photoshop/GIMP or modified by me from The Kixg's original mod. Update March 2021: the new Kits icons in buildbuy and CAS look fine as they are by default, however they were changed for the gallery to look more consistent with the other packs.

I will be updating this for every future pack that comes out as soon as I can. For future expansions I will make sure the EP's color suits the pack's theme and isn't too similar to previous packs.

This mod will be compatible with 99.999% of patches, so I won't be constantly writing "this mod is compatible with X patch".

I made this mod because of my personal strong hatred of the rebranding and the previous icons mod I use by the Kixg is no longer being updated after Snowy Escape.

This mod should be compatible with 99% of mods out there, as it only modifies the pack icons and nothing else. However it WILL conflict with any other mod that edit pack icons, including TwistedMexi's Clean UI.

Thank you. I find it's easier to identify which pack each object is from with colored icons.

Thank you SO much for making this! I just can't warm up to the new icons, so I'm really happy that you made this, especially since the one I used before is now no longer being updated. Thank you for keeping this up and making this, I really can't thank you enough!

Don't works for GP10 in gallery view, when you don't have this game pack - icon is default. Same with kits icon - in gallery are default. I don't know if the rest of not owned pack show correctly in gallery because is promotion now.
Anyway, big thanks for this mod! You save my life .

The "greyed" out icons for game and stuff packs and kits are unchanged. Only the EP unowned icons were changed to the "old style" hexagon shape. I didn't want the file size to become too large. It doesn't affect the look of the game much at all.

Hi! Just wanted to quickly let you know how much I appreciate this mod and how fast you update it (AND that you update it consistently at all). I really liked the old icons so I'm very happy you allow me to keep them. I mean, you even make the effort to basically reverse engineer the newer icons into the old style, which is really cool. So thank you, I'm very glad

I have a mod that inverts the Journey to Batuu icon which I like, because the circle looks kind of weird when nothing else has one and oddly enough, it does work with this mod. When I realized these two were not compatible because of the art style, I figured I'd check to see what happens and the other mod overwrote on that specific file. For a moment I considered leaving it anyway, but I'll be deleting it, because while the circle bugs me the inconsistent art style bugs me more and you did a beautiful job with these. I was wondering what your thoughts are on the style of that particular icon and if there was any chance you would consider making that icon fit the others? Obviously it's your mod and I am ever so thankful for it. Most of the time I won't even notice, but if I don't ask, I will never know what you would say.

So thank you for making this mod. It really makes things look better.
