I am currently playing with this hood (Emerald Heights), but I noticed after installing a road default replacement it wasn't showing up for the hood. Then I noticed that seems to be because the game thinks the hood is using a lush type terrain - it has a strip of green grass between the maxis road and footpath.

Apparently the terrain type cheat doesn't fix this properly - ugh.

I found this thread that discusses this issue and how to fix it (see link below), but hex editing is well and truly beyond me. I downloaded a hex editor and opened the extracted SimPE file, but then my brain exploded trying to work out what I was looking at and how I could possibly follow Moo's instructions...

http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=445472

I'm wondering, is there an easier way to fix this problem? I did think of using Moo's hood replace program to replace the terrain with the exact same sc4 map, but of the desert type. However, the map in question doesn't seem to be available for download.

Yes, you can use hood replace. You don't need the SC4 file, Hood Replace uses a source neighbourhood to copy the terrain from. So just make a new neighbourhood with the terrain type that you need (using any SC4 template), and then use Hood Replace to copy the terrain from Emerald Heights.

Ugh, it looks like Hood Replace is copying the 'incorrect' NGBH over.

Looks like you'll have to resort to hex editing that, as Mootilda describes. As it's an empty neighbourhood, you could try replacing it with an NGBH from an empty desert terrain hood, but I'm not sure if that will have any side effects.
