If you want to see how this will look in game in both neigbourhoods, please watch my Youtube Video:
Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content: Overgrown City Skyline Replacement (it's only 1.39 minutes long)

If you want to make a backdrop replacement yourself, but don't know how to do that, please watch my Youtube Tutorial Video:
The Sims 4 Tutorial: How to make a (City Skyline) Backdrop Replacement (it's only 9.09 minutes long)



Overgrown City Skyline
This download contains 1 new City Skyline Replacement that will appear instead of the default City Skyline in Willow Creek and New Crest (And all future neighbourhoods that will use the same backdrop).
It was a suggestion by several people after releasing my Apocalypse City Skyline Replacement. Want to know how it will look in New Crest, then watch the video at the top of this page.

Object information:
You won't find this backdrop replacement in build mode or whatsoever, as it's a World Object override that can be found in Willow Creek and New Crest when staring into the distance.

This download is a resource override, this means that it will totally replace all the City Skylines into the Overgrown one.
If you want to have the original default city skyline back in your game, just remove the package file from your Mods folder.

This override may conflicts with overrides that are using the same resource: matteGCW_Backdrop_City_01 0000000000002cc5

Some other City Skyline Backdrop Replacements that I made, can be downloaded right here:
4 new City Skyline Replacements (Pack 1)
3 New City Skyline Replacement (Pack 2)
3 New City Skyline Replacement (Pack 3)
City Skyline Backdrop Remover
Apocalyptic City Skyline Replacement
Chicago City Skyline Replacement
Each of them also got a video showing how they will look in game at day- and nighttime.

I've done a quick search on Simpsons Springfiel Skyline, but couldn't find anything useable unfortunaly. Unless you can find something, I don't think I can do this one, I'm sorry.

The other worlds use different backgrounds then this one, so city skylines wouldn't fit those other neighbourhoods I think, but I will take a look at some of those and see if i can come up with something to make in future.

I cant get any city skyline replacements to work. I have mods and script mods enabled. I've tried all different replacements and none of them show up. I've searched but nobody else seems to have this problem. Can you help?

First of all, you can only use one city skyline at the time. So only place one package file, from the skyline you want to see, into your mods folder.
After tou did that, the skyline will only get replaced on the places where the default city skyline could be found before. So for example in Willow Creek and New Crest. As for New Crest, if you choose the large lot that lays in front of the big pond, you should see it behind it, like can be seen in the video.

I suppose other mods work just fine in your game?

All other mods work. Anyhow, I have realized that you can't get rid of those big ugly buildings in Newcrest. When I played Willow Creek there were no buildings in the background only trees so I realized the skyline mod was working I just was in error because I thought the mod would get rid of those buildings in Newcrest but they can't be part of the skyline, they're something else. Thanks for your hard work in making these.

You're welcome!
As for the buildings, they're separate objects, just like the tree background in Willow Creek, so they will keep there place.
