If your pictures are unaltered, your actual screen resolution of 1024x576 is 16:9 (not 16:10)

Your physical screen resolution might be 16:10 (let me guess, the famous 1440x900?) but your in-game resolution is 16:9, which gives a larger image (proportionally speaking). If I'm right, you probably have slight black bars at top and bottom of the game, or your Sims appear slimmer than they should (they are stretched vertically).

I do have a 1440x900 screen (16:10), but the game only offers me 1280x768 (16:9.6) for WS. When comparing my screenshots with yours, I have slightly more place on the left of the box (the one where you enter Sim settings) and much less on the right. The default Maxis camera settings, while causing the Sim to be off-centered, does not cause it to be partially hidden as on your screenshots. In fact, I find that only pets (which your config file does not affect) are a problem on my CAS screens.

Therefore your camera settings do not work well for me.

Your camera settings don't work for 1680x1050.

What a gem!!!!

I have been looking for ages for a mod/hack or anything that will stretch the bottom bar in the CAS. At least now I can see more of what I'm doing.

Thank you for sharing this.

My screen res is 1366x768 and the heads being chopped off buggered me to no end.

My Mac screen is 1920x1080, and the hack's not working for me... Is my screen to big, or what?

Same here. I just endured it until I found this mod. Makes editing a sim's face SO MUCH EASIER!

Thank you very much! Making people in CAS is now an enjoyable experience (as it used to), not an annoying trial.

Someone really needs to make an updated version of this mod, including for pets as well.

I refuse to believe that in this day & age, people aren't using widescreen monitors.

I have the Ultimate Collection & I've tried putting this in every different folder I can think of & it just doesn't work (1920x1080).




EDIT : I put it in the wrong area! Derp.

It would still be nice to have a fix for pets though >.>
