Oh those random screenshot ideas that inspire creativity

Anyway, howdy! While in process of making my calendar contest entry for December, I realised I needed a "fake" ice skating rink desperately for the sake of convenient posing and decorating. However, I couldn't find a decent ice terrain paint to mimic it... here's where Lowedeus kindly came to help, extracting the in-game pond ice texture for me. I imported it back into the game as a terrain cover and the result you can see on the screenshots. I like how scratched lines on the texture look like blade traces

I guess you can and prolly will find 1000 and 1 more uses for this paint, "skating rinks" is only one I can suggest.
Pls, no reuploads for this one. And go check out Lowedeus' CC, it's seriously beyond awesome.

Have fun!
