Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Changelog
Update: 06/28/2018
  • Fixed an EA issue that items with more than 25 color swatches can cause items to misalign. This is done by limiting the number of swatches the thumbnail preview can show. You can still select all swatches an item has from the drop down selection grid.

Version 1.7: 06/20/2018
  • Updated for game version 1.44.77 (June 19 patch).

Update: 02/23/2018
  • Updated for game version 1.40.61 (Feb. 22 patch).

Version 1.6: 11/09/2017
  • Updated for game version 1.36.102 (Nov. 9 patch).
  • Added support for Create A Pet.

Description
This mod increases the number of columns in CAS. Two flavours of the mod are available: 3 columns, and 4 columns.

Warning
If your game's resolution is too low, the UI might be cut off of the screen. I don't recommend using the 3 column flavor if your resolution is lower than 1280x720, or the 4 column flavor if your resolution is lower than 1600x900.
Please note that if you have Cats & Dogs, a slighter higher resolution may be required for all columns to be shown in Create A Pet.

Compatibility
Check the download page for which game version the mod was built with.
Generally speaking, the mod is NOT compatible with older versions of the game than it's built with.

Conflicts
This mod overrides the following files and will conflict with other mods that also modify these files.

I've added optional files that increase the number of color swatches per row.



No promise I'd keep this one up to date in the future tho, since I don't use CC and have no need for it myself :p

When I first saw this mod, I thought I'd never need it. Then I realized just how much CC I use (especially hair!). The 3 rows version makes everything so much easier to navigate! Thank you so much.

The mod for extending the swatches per row caused my game to load eternally I did test it, and it was the definite cause. I hope it gets fixed since it was a huge help for me!

Which version did you use? I think I only tested the one for 4 columns and it worked fine.

First, a big thank you for this great mod I have a concern , the printing process is placed differently in width, but the columns are in two parts , I chose three columns, saw my resolution 1280x1024 , I do know why , the columns do not divide into three , can you help me. I mod CAS Scumbumbo and I put yours in special folder Overrides with the corrected source and it does not work in full. I'm still looking for my part why, if you have an idea, I 'm all ears Thank you very much in advance

Hi! I want to say I LOVE this mod, but I have been having some issues when it is in with the CAS Enabler. The game works for a bit while in CAS (both in traditional CAS and in the mirror/dresser) but when I go to click, the pointer changes to the pan tool, then the menu collapses and all the buttons turn useless. I used v1.2 4-column mod. I haven't tried the 3-column.

Don't know if this is related, but sometimes one item window goes out of alignment and off to the side. Don't know what caused that to happen as it has been a fairly old problem.

Thanks

This was working for me really great when it was first released. Tried it tonight on the newest patch and nada. Like it wasn't installed at all. Not in a subfolder either - in case anyone thinks that could be the problem. At least for me, it's no longer working.

Thanks. I love it. For anyone downloading this, I'd recommend using 4 columns for desktops or 3 for a laptop. At least, that's what works best for me. It depends on the size of your computer's screen though. Even in full screen mode, I realized it won't show the scroll option when changing facial features on my laptop. Had to come back here and find the 3 column version. :p

I love this mod, but I made the mistake of updating and now it doesn't work. The swatches work, funnily enough, but not the columns. If you are not interested in keeping this updated as you said above, would you be kind enough to let us know how to update it so those who want to can do it ourselves if we want it continue using it? Just a thought...

I just realized I have the same problem. At first I thought the mod wasn't doing anything. Then I noticed when I went back just now that the swatches for my eyes and hair color are stretched out (hard to explain). But definitely it is not working properly with the last game update for Cool Kitchen Stuff.

It still works for me with the latest update. Besides not being installed correctly I cannot think of any reasons why it wouldn't work for you.

It's not installed any differently for me than it was before. I don't know what else to say beyond that.
