Updated for the 1.40 Jungle Adventure patch.

Ever notice how when EA updated the world maps from plain to full colour they also completely missed off some details from Magnolia Promenade and added in details that don't exist? When you compare the original to what we have now you can see the circular paved area by the river has been removed entirely, an area of woodland has been added to the bottom that is actually open park land when you're in the neighbourhood, a building has been added on the left where there isn't one, and the buildings in the top right are far too sparsely placed. Whoever created this version of the map also seems to have a thing for fir trees as they are everywhere on this map but not in game.
Well, this mod alters the map image to one that is full colour but with the feature layout of the original. In addition to this I have also correctly coloured the area around the Lots to reflect that the land is paved and not open grass. The Lots will now also correctly show grass from map view when natural ground is exposed instead of looking permanently paved.

This mod overrides two image files that the game combines to create this single map image.
The images have Instance 05B9059B6757E8EA and Groups 00064DC9 and 00064DCA
Any other mods that override these same resource will conflict.
This override has been made possible thanks to the UITextureSquasher tool created by CmarNYC.

The location of the Lots have NOT been altered with this mod. This is purely a texture replacement.
Place in your downloads folder as you would with any other .package. To delete, just remove it from your Mods folder. It's only a visual change so shouldn't break your game.
