Default Quality|1|No Restricted EPs
1: This upload requires the Seasons EP. If you have the Seasons EP installed you MUST use the AnyGameStarter to create your CAS screen without Seasons. If you do not do this, any sims in the CAS screen will turn blue and freeze.

1: This upload requires the Pets EP. If you have the Pets EP installed you MUST use the AnyGameStarter to create your CAS screen without Pets. Using the Pets EP will cause stray pets to wander into your CAS screen and get stuck.


5: This screen does not require Seasons or Pets

Default Quality|2|Lighting
1: This CAS screen has no lighting in it. It is too dark to see the sims being created. Please add some lights!

2: There is some lighting, but it is not adequate. Having only a few lights or lights behind the sim causes dark shadows in places that should be lit instead.

3: The CAS screen and CAF screen both have lighting, but there are still a few shadows in places there shouldn't be.

5: Both rooms are well light. Great job!

Default Files|1|File Type
1: Your .package file is incorrectly named. It needs to be CAS!.package to work correctly in game.

5: Your file is correctly named, thank you!

Default Information|2|Required Expansion Packs

5: This CAS screen is correctly marked as to which EPs and SPs it requires.

Default Information|3|CAS Object Hider Mod
1: This CAS screen requires windkeeper's mod to make the CAS objects disappear. You need to say so in your post and provide a link to it.

2: You mentioned needing a mod to hide the CAS objects, but didn't link to it or credit windkeeper, the creator.

5: Thank you for linking and crediting the object hider mod properly!

Default Information|4|Custom Content
1: There is custom content in this CAS screen but you didn't credit or link to it. CAS screens do not package their custom content like lots do so you will need to find, credit, link, and provide site directions for every piece of CC you have shown.

2: You've credited and linked to some of the CC shown, but not all of it. CAS screens do not package their custom content like lots do so you will need to find, credit, link, and provide site directions for every piece of CC you have shown.

3: You've credited and linked your CC, but the links aren't enough to get users to the items. For sites with Flash or frames, you need to provide directions as to how to get to the proper page as well.

5: Everything is properly credited and linked so that users will be able to find and download everything you used.

Default Screenshots|1|Show both Rooms
1: We need to see a picture of both rooms; CASim and CAFamily.

4: We can see both rooms clearly in the only two pictures you provided.

5: Wow, thank you for the multiple views in CAS, not many people show us both the full view and the face view. Nice attention to detail!
