This is a Street Default Replacement set inspired by JoshieJack's request for a more European looking version.

As you can see, the road is darker, the lane divider stripes are white (and sorry, but making them dashed lines is impossible because of the way the lines repeat over the asphalt texture--believe me, I tried), and the sidewalk is gray.

There are four files all together (1 asphalt, 1 street stripes, 2 sidewalk) and they can be used in any combination successfully, so if you some default colors but not all, just don't install the files you don't wish to use.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please make sure to delete your cache files before starting your game after these files are installed. That and letting the movie run through after installing mods like this result in way fewer crashes to the desktop on the load screen.

Thank you very much Peter Jones, for S3PE and to JoshieJack for requesting this and for finding the files for me to edit.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
