Allows to change terrain surface

Are you tired of endless list of filler assets cluttering your parks panel and exhausting your buildings limit? Then this mod is for you!

This is a plugin for my Extra Lanscaping Tools mod that allows to paint terrain with standard decorative types of surface (pavement, gravel, field, ruining). Note that this mod doesn't provide any custom textures. And it won't provide any custom textures/surfaces because it's not possible. It simply tells the game to render pavement, fields etc. in painted areas.

Make sure that both Extra Landscaping Tools and Surface Painter are enabled in Content Manager before complaining. Also, this mod requires the latest version of Extra Lanscaping Tools to function so you can try re-verify local game cache if nothing else helps.

Tool is available through 'Surface Tool' button on main toolbar. Use left mouse button to paint and right mouse button to erase.

This mod also provides 'no override' mode (press Shift key while painting). With that mode surface tool becomes aware of surface under buildings, trees and roads and doesn't override surface in such places.

This mod can be safely disabled at any time. But painted surface will return to stock appearance if you disable this mod.

Known conflicts:
- Find It!'s 'Enhance all panels' feature makes this mod's surface selection panel blank. You don't have to turn off the entire Find It! to make it compatible with this mod and Extra Landscaping Tools. Just go to Find It!'s options and disable 'Enhance all menus' option there.

Planned features:
- Brush rotation mod integration (to be implemented in Extra Lanscaping Tools)
- Surface painting in Map Editor

Latest update:
UPDATE 4 (8/17/2017)
Fixed: Updated for C:S 1.8.0 a.k.a Concerts DLC

If I didn't have this mod, I probably wouldn't play the game. Donated 30 Euro.

Try installing "Extra landscaping tools"-mod first. It made it work for me just now.
