Oasis Springs Map Override

In a similar vein to my previous map overrides, I have now updated the Oasis Springs map to more accuratlely represent the in-game world.
This time EA didn't change anything from the plain version to the coloured version but that isn't to say that there weren't a few things that needed correcting anyway.
The roads have been edited ever so slightly and a few decorative props altered. The big difference is the inclusion of the grassy areas on the map! No longer do you have to try and remember which neghbourhoods are lush and green. Now you can see from the map!

This mod overrides two image files that the game combines to create this single map image.
The images have Instance FEB200D10389DFAA and Groups 00064DC9 and 00064DCA
Any other mods that override these same resource will conflict.
This override has been made possible thanks to the new UITextureSquasher tool created by CmarNYC.

This is purely a texture replacement. It does not correct the rotation of the Landgraab Lot which is facing backwards from map view.
Place in your downloads folder as you would with any other .package. To delete, just remove it from your Mods folder. It's only a visual change so shouldn't break your game.

I'm glad you like this mod.
I'm sorry but I won't make a full green override as I primarily make these for use in my own game and I wouldn't use it. I hope that doesn't sound harsh. If you check my previous comment though, I have written up a tutorial explaining how to make map overrides if you want to give it a go yourself.

To anyone who has this file, please redownload and replace the old file with the new version uploaded today. I only recently noticed that I left the Lot boundary guide lines on the texture but I should have deleted them. My apologies.
Shows how much I actually play in Oasis Springs for me not to notice since I last updated the file.
