Description
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!



Info
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.

Notes
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.

Thanks so much for this! Although, would it be possible to correct the rotation of the Landgraab Lot which is facing backwards from map view? If not, that's fine. Just thought I'd ask. I love your map overrides though.

The Landgraab Lot can't be fixed with a mod like this. This file is just a texture replacement. The Lot rotation info is kept in a seperate (more complicated) file that, so far, I think only Zerbu has attempted to mod and change.
The wedding park in Myshuno from City Living suffers from the same issue.

Oh...ok. Thanks for the info. I never noticed that wedding park in San Myshuno being that way either. When I start up my game, I'll look at that lot. Is Zerbu's mod available?

He didn't make it into a mod. He was experimenting with being able to add custom neighbourhoods to the game. I think his experiments proved futile in the end.

I've figured out which files control the lot rotation. They're kept in World Map files. Oasis Springs is AAC33A32114214F3. The Landgraab lot is LotID 941492E0, WorldID 46A9F272. Unfortunately it does require a bit of trial and error to find the correct positioning.

This also doesn't affect the lot thumbnail. You have to edit the lot to update it. Presumably this is the reason why they have never bothered to fix it.

I want learn how to do this stuff!! I love this, kept seeing what I knew was Oasis Springs in youtuber games and was like...wtf? I would add more green, though. Not complaining, as I have no idea how complicated it is to do this.

You've seen this in peoples' YouTube videos? Neat! At least I know people like my stuff.
I was already considering making a tutorial for this, so it looks like I'll have to try and make that a priority.
It's not too complicated as the maps are just basically a PNG texture file.
