*INCOMPATIBLE* CAS Details Enabler

INCOMPATIBLE WITH CURRENT GAME VERSION - I don't know if I'll be able to update this mod any time in the near future, I wrote it so long ago I've basically forgotten nearly everything about how I wrote it. Was kind of like working in assembler language to edit the user interface I remember that much! If I can find any notes I left myself regarding the mod an update may be possible in the future.

Description

This mod will enable all of the skin and facial details in CAS without requiring testing cheats or CAS full edit mode. It doesn't enable full edit mode (I tried many approaches and wasted many hours, trust me!) but it does unlock the following CAS menus for use anytime CAS is used:
  • Bodies and Skin Tone
  • Tattoos
  • Faces and Skin Tone
  • Skin Details
Although I was trying to get full edit mode always working, this is still pretty useful as I know a lot of people would like to be able to change tattoos on a sim after creating them. Still inaccessible is the fatnes/fitness sliders, and full body modifcations (although you can choose a new "set" body type). I'll keep plugging at enabling the full edit mode when I get the chance.

Compatibility and Installation Instructions

The mod was written and tested on the latest game patch level (February 4, 2016 - version 1.15.55), but may work on any version of TS4 past the "Get Together" patch (December 4, 2015 - version 1.13.104).

To install, just drop the package file into your mods folder.

This mod will conflict with any other mods which alter this portion of the CAS user interface, specifically the cassimcontextmenu (S4_62ECC59A_00000000_CAEE355CE0B704F7). Due to the wide variety of mods and sources for them, it is unlikely I will be able to help you with such a conflict.

Just tried the mod and the skin detail option remained greyed out for alien sims (also in post 19 you mentioned you tried to allow beard for kids and they ended up floating above their head that's because the mesh needs edited in blender i have to do that a lot when converting adult hair for kids)

If you don't use cheats and take a Sim who is already in the game to a dresser or mirror, these CAS sections are usually greyed out and cannot be used. This mod enables them again without having to use a cheat first.

I could create a version that has that facial hair enabled for children if you (or someone else) wants to experiment with that. Not sure how many people want children with mustaches or beards, but probably someone!

OMG I didn't realize how much I needed this until I played with it. Thank you so much!

If you are planning on releasing an update with the fixed fatness/fitness sliders, would it be possible to create a version that lets you see but NOT edit them?

There were some changes made to the file for 07/28, but it's almost impossible to determine what the changes were in the UI resources (it's quite possible nothing "real" changed). I haven't noticed any issues and haven't heard of any problems, but let me know if something seems to be working wrong in CAS (even if not directly related to the details buttons).

More changes were made to the code for the August 6th game patch, and I have updated the mod to include these changes. Updating is suggested, but does not appear to be required.

Was the fix related to a "NameError: global name 'ResetReason' is not defined" error? I was about to message you about it

Edit: sorry, wrong mod. That was about the PutBooksAway and KeepInstrumentsInInventory mods.

Great mod! Except for the fact eye colour keeps changing? Any fix for that?
