Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
First off, install this like any other mod. There are many threads on many forums where you can get help with that.

When installing a new version of No Mosaic make sure you delete the old version.

You do not need any certain expansion or stuff packs for it to work properly, you just need one of the versions mentioned below.

NoMosaicLN will work with the following game versions;
Base Game 1.17
World Adventures 2.12
High End Loft Stuff 3.8
Ambitions 4.5
Fast Lane Stuff 5.2
Late Night 6.0

NoMosaicFLS will work with the following game versions;
Base Game 1.15
World Adventures 2.10
High End Loft Stuff 3.6
Ambitions 4.3
Fast Lane Stuff 5.0

NoMosaicAMB will work with the following game versions;
Base Game 1.12 to 1.14
World Adventures 2.7 to 2.9
High End Loft Stuff 3.3 to 3.5
Ambitions 4.0 to 4.2

If anyone uses a version older than 1.12/2.7/3.3/4.0 please let me know and I'll post a compatible version of the mod.

Thanks I was wondering why the effects were not there.

I didn't even know there were any new effects. The old version was reported as being compatible so I never looked for an update.

There are new effects for WA?!?
Thanks for letting us know, and for this updated mod!

Not buying TS4 until Terrain Sculpting is back and cheatless Split Levels are added!

I found a little thing that NoMosaic removes: the ghost special effects. They do not float and do not show their specific effects that every kind of ghost have (Like the fire and smoke from a sim that burned to death).

One good thing about it is that my playable ghosts have started walking again! I hate when they float XD but I miss the effects tho :p

EDIT: Forget what I wrote before. Its a bug in my game that makes ghost sims disappear when spliting a family in my game.

--> NoMosaic does not remove the special effects on ghosts :P

I've never had a problem with the old version on any of the WA patches, but this new version seems to be working too...

EDIT: This new version is way better! So much I was missing with the wrong mod. Thanks again Rothchild!

News posting on Snooty Sims:

"World Adventures and mods
After installing World Adventures, I first checked if custom content was still working. Objects, skins and clothes all still seem to be working. Mods however is a different story. For example my buyable Life Fruit stopped working as well as several others. Censorpatch still works though, but it's clear that a lot of mods will need to be updated. "

Hence why I never looked for an update or thought there was a problem.

Love this one, sure see what was missing

Can you see the new effects? That does not mean it is working "fine".

Just to let you know, this mod has been posted since the 21st at Crazy Town. Initial feedback has been positive.

That would have to be an installation issue, since dozens have confirmed it removes the censor.

I have heard of a few reports of that happening when people had no mods or CC. Often times when people download sims or lots they get CC without their knowledge. I don't think this mod could cause that, but we still don't know a lot about the blue lot issue. Through testing most seem to link it to CC and not mods. I will keep an eye on this issue though.

Thank you for the update, I was just about to test that. If this mod does create any issues, this is around what I'd expect.

It will work, but you are missing new effects. When you get the Eye Candy trait you won't see the sparkles, when you meditate you won't see the glow, and many others. Some of the new effects are very useful for tomb exploration.

This mod nor the old version should have any effect on that.

I believe that would be either a core or scripting mod, neither of which I've tried before.

If you have WA the mod should go in C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 World Adventures\Mods\Packages

You'll need to make sure you have Resource.cfg in C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 World Adventures

YES! I wanted someone to remove the sparkle effects on Eye Candy trait. And the glowing when you meditate was getting annoying, too. Thanks!

Sorry Austin, you misunderstood me. Those effects, and every new effect, are missing from the old No Mosaic mod. This version lets you see all the new effects, the good (like flames from flame traps) and the bad (like constantly sparkling sims).

There have been many requests to remove the sparkle effect from Eye Candy. I have seen the reference to it in the Sims3Effects file, so I should be able to remove it just like the blur. Before I do that I want to make sure there are no issues with this mod, and find out if that can be achieved with a texture replacement.
