If you want to see a short overview of my previous City Skyline Backdrop Replacement and how this new one will look in game, please watch my Youtube Video:
Bakies The Sims 4 Custom Content:Chicago City Skyline Replacement (it's only 1.45 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)



Chicago City Skyline Replacement
This download contains 1 new City Skyline Replacement that will appear instead of the default City Skyline in Willow Creek and all other neighbourhoods that use that same backdrop.
It was a request by BabiHunni who wanted Chicago as Hometown for the Sims too.
Besides this City Skyline Replacement I made a whole bunch more some time ago, for a short overview of them take a look at my 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 some other neighbourhoods when staring into the distance.

This download is a resource override, this means that it will totally replace all the Default City Skylines which looks the same as the one in Willo Creek into the Chicago City Skyline.
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
Burning City Skyline Replacement
Overgrown 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.

You're welcome! Decided to just upload it already so you didn't had to wait for next week for example, when everything is already finished.

Not sure what's more impressive the beautiful background or the fact that EA watered down the game and charged the same. Nice job though to bad we can't go back to the old ways where It was an actual city lol.

If someone can make a complete mesh of a city, all they have to do is replace the backdrop with the city...but making that complete city will be the hard part I think.. :P
