On the occasion of Maxis re-releasing 'The Sims 2 Holiday Edition', I decided to create a Christmas CAS! Screen.

You MUST have 'The Sims 2 Holiday Edition' OR 'The Sims 2 Christmas Party Pack' in order for this to work!

Just place the file into your Downloads folder.

The following files must also be downloaded:

1) wind_CASinvisibleroundpodium.package
2) wind_CASinvisibleobjects_nomirror.package
3) wind_CASinvisibleobjects_familypart.package:

4) Snow and ice ground cover:

If you want to uninstall the CAS! Screen, go to your Downloads folder located in MyDocuments\EAGames\TheSims2\Downloads, find the file with the name CAS!.package and delete it.

This is my first upload here at MTS2. I hope you like it! I will be waiting for your comments and suggestions! Enjoy!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

I'm not sure why this has happened to you, but please try this:

Go to "My Computer"---> "C:"---> "Program Files"---> "EA Games" and then open the folder of the game you installed last ( if you only have the base game open "The Sims 2", if you last installed Pets open "The Sims 2 Pets", etc ) and then "TSData" ---> "Res" ---> "GlobalLots". In this folder you'll find a file named "CAS!.package". Copy it ( be careful, copy, NOT cut!!! ) and paste it to your downloads folder. Please let me know if it works!!!

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour...
