What does this do?

This mod is a very simple texture replacer that removes the bright little flash that occurs when you use the sledgehammer tool to delete objects in buy/build mode. It's a small annoyance, but it gets irritating when you're building a bunch of stuff and experimenting.

DDS textures replaced are: lightFlare, circleOutline, and shockWave.

This default-replaces the DDS textures used to create the flash in-game, so it probably won't impact performance any (for good or bad) - it also won't conflict with anything else. It's not a "real" mod.

Please note: this mod is NOT meant to cure the problem some have of those flashes sticking around! The flash is only meant to last about half a second when you click - if your flashes are staying and not disappearing, then you need to remove an outdated no censor blur hack/mod that you have, and get an updated version (I like Twallan's Decensor). You can still download this mod if the flashes bug you normally, but the flashes staying around on a lot is not normal behavior and is due to an outdated hack - better to fix the root of the problem than to download something else to just fix the symptoms!

Get it combined:

All of my tiny texture replacers are available in one .package file, for your convenience. You may download either the single files, OR the combined file - not both!

How to use:

Place the .package file in your Mods\Packages folder
Delete your cache files (the 4 files with "cache" in the filename) found in My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\
