Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I have made my first CAS Screen and I think it turned out rather nice.
I needed a better backdrop to take pictures of my medieval and renaissance custom made clothing so I made these medieval themed CAS screens!

You can download the regular CAS screen and the YACAS screen for University.

You can just put them in your download folder.

It includes no custom content but all the expansion packs are required.

In the zip the files are in their own folder so you can easily find them in your downloads folder if you was to change your CAS screen.

It works perfectly in my game but I need someone who downloads this to come back and tell me if it works.

View my profile and/or visit my web site Fanciful Sims to get the clothing seen in the screenshots.

I didn't imagine myself ever changing the CAS - but when I saw these two sets I just couldn't resist! I'm not even running a medieval neighbourhood yet, but these two are absolutely gorgeous!

I have The Sims 2 Holiday Edition and all three expansion packs. Both the CAS and the YACAS work fine in my game, just like the originals. I have them installed in their own CAS folder in Downloads - I didn't realize it was that easy to change the CAS. While they are both excellent, I think I like your CAS more the YACAS, there is a greater feeling of richness in the set.

BTW, I stopped off at your site and picked up some jewelry and the medieval blue toddler outfit - both very nice!

These are beautiful!!!!! The best I've ever seen. Any chance that you could make the one for University for the regular CAS? It's my favorite of the two and I don't care to play University.

This has got to be the most stunning CAS screen I've ever seen!!! How did you managed to get rid of the photos or are they just cleverly hidden?? Thank you for taking the time and effort to put this together for us.:baloons:

I'm glad you like it!
When I was creating the CAS screens I hid the objects from the original set by using the 'boolProp snapObjectsToGrid false' cheat to move the photos into the wall and I built some walls to hide the furniture. Then I decorated the set medieval style!

Is there a tutorial anywhere on how to make own CAS-screens? I think I'd like to try it, too ...

No I haven't learned how to make objects yet. For now I'm mostly sticking to clothing with a few extras like this.

I've been trying this out in my game for a little while now, and while I love it I find that the lighting is just a little bit too bright in the initial sim creation part. When you zoom in on the sims it's just a bit too bright on their face.

Quite lovely, Enblith, very nice work. And xxxploitme - if you look up at the top of the main downloads, there is a upload from Windkeeper that removes clutter - it should be what you are asking about. Its currently the most recent featured, I believe.

Wow....these are amazing! I have just one question for you.
To remove them do you meerly do the downloads folder and delete them?
Other than that, they're great!
