Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update: I've added another version, I never liked the color of the wood on the bed in the first version, so this uses a different bed that has a much closer wood tone to the dresser. The back porch wasn't changed at all. Its still Basegame, still no CC, and shiny-new!

Anyone else wonder why Create-A-Sim is in a photo studio? It kinda makes sense, but I was getting REALLY sick of brick. How about we get our sims dressed in a room that has a dresser? I've always thought getting dressed in a bedroom was a much nicer idea, but I haven't seen any CAS screens that are done in bedrooms! This bedroom is purposefully neutral, considering Sims of all kinds will be getting ready there. I created this CAS screen using my Mac (only has the base-game) with no CC, and tested it on my PC (all EPs) so it is compatible with EVERYBODY!


New Version


The other room was NEVER on my favorites list, how many times do you drag the entire family to a photo studio to have professional photos taken? How about instead, we call up Uncle Jack and have him come over to our house, set up his camera, lights, and backdrop on the back porch? There is great outdoor lighting and the kids can play on the swing set until it's photo time, works out great for everybody!


Enjoy!

P.S. I love reading comments, leave me a couple?



Additional Credits:
To Aspyr, for being slow enough with the Mac versions of the EPs that I switched to PC sims around NL (OFB for PC users, they were seriously an entire EP behind, gah.)

Also, Tribute to my Uncle Jack, a professional photographer who did very nice 'on location' shots.

wow!! what a great idea!
I agree with you, the original CAS screen was also a bit dark and with those brick walls seems more like an alley than a photo studio
Thank you so much for this

Great job!

Definetly downloading. I've actually tried to make screens, but they never came out so nice-looking!

Comments for you, since you asked for 'em
Seriously, very nice work. I tried making a CAS screen of my own once, but I hadn't thought of making a CAS bedroom--I love that idea! I also really like your backyard CAS screen, but the bedroom is by far the best. Thank yoooooouuu!!!!!1

Please. DON'T ask me who Frazier is, or I'll hurt you.

Hah! Getting dressed in a bedroom! Insanity!

I love your idea, thanks for making something so cool and quality! The photos on the back porch is way creative. If you ever recolor this, add some nick-nacks and stuff to make the bedroom look a little lived in. Great job, thank you!

Funnily enough, we are dragging the whole family to the photo studio today to get professional photos taken. But this is a much better idea. Thanks a ton. Wish we were just going to my uncles to get them taken...

Hah! I've inspired people! Awesome! Remember everybody, if you are going to make one, you have to do it with a game that doesn't have seasons or pets.

Tried that, and it started to personalized the room too much. As is, its already hard to see my goth sims claiming that as their bedoom, but with nicknacks; kids, toddlers, guys, girls, cheerleaders, goths, grannies, who do I personalize it for? Its made to be neutral, I almost added in some candles and a picture, but basegame doesn't have a cheat for placing pictures on diagonal walls...arg.

See you on MY side of the line! (as 'hoods and CAS fall into the same catorgary for some reason...)
AHH! If we are going to degenerate into some good-natured little-kid bickering, I'll make mention that as you do have MANY wonderful neighborhoods, none of them have been Top Picked/Featured, and I have made only one and it was Top Picked... So though you may have had more practice at it than me, I'm still ... better? ...whatev

Anyways, I do look forward to seeing what you come up with. (And I think my neighborhood only got Picked because it was designed for Beach Lots and came out right when there weren't any others, so that only means I had a good strategy....) I don't have enough patience to make more, I respect those that do.

Snap, was wondering if anyone would catch me. Its actually 3, the reflection in the mirror is the second and third desks. If I had just done two, you'd see the place for the chair in the reflection. I think it looks like a dresser this way, and all the base game dressers are over-sized anyways.

Hey Phaenoh, I MUST say GREAT WORK out there!!!
I LIKE your CAS that much that I decided to make a feedback, either to perfectionate or even creating a new one... may I? ThanXs!
Well, here it goes.
Everything looks GREAT. The colors are all very well chosen. Now creating a Sim changed from brick to "classy"! (GREAT!). You know, I spent must of time creating Sims so you will understand I really hate Maxis CAS, since I have had to spend lots of hours with a "depressing" athmosphere. Now future looks promising. Every objetc looks great. I MUST say THANKS you did not use CUSTOM CONTENT. I have seen some others nice CAS in MTS2 that even use pay-content (have you noticed), then some of us simply cannot have it which is sad, isnt it?
I only found a couple of observations to give suggestions. It is regarding the place of furniture. I think that the bed behind the mirror would look better somewhere else, I mean that the place in which the mirror is located it wouldnt let us to go and sit on the bed, (thats the impression I had when I was creating a sexy sim-version of Jessica Rabbit, mmh I noticed it because I saw her standing there and then I saw the bed and everything came up, you know what I mean. Only for fantasy dont you think itd be great to have the way to bed free? lol) The second suggestion is that the piece of furniture to the right is kind of litte bright and big, which calls my sight and attention, I say it because me playing the Sims is basically creating characters (your CAS is going to be real help ) then I think that another version in which the bed stands to the right, instead of the dresser would look SUuuPER.
then as and extra comment, and as a special request for creating-character-simmers like me, could you make a version of your bedroom in which the floor is a mirror? Because you know there are some skirts meshes that are not real skirts, I mean there are someones that are actually fulfilled, and there are others, as those by chrikos creations which are real skirts which if you could see from beneath you would actually see her... real underwear. I like my Sims to look the most real possible, so in this case, a CAS like this request, more than a simple CAS, would be like TOOL and very helpful for simmers like me. I would like to keep in kontact, so if you are interested I can send you my email, and a couple of my creations... Hope to hear from you. REGARDS Smartcat777
Oh yes, the place from which you can get the mirror reflective floor (and for free is:

Thanks for the comments smartcat. I did wonder a bit about the mirror, but I was thinking that you usually don't have a mirror standing out in the middle of your bedroom to begin with. I figure the mirror was pulled out from the corner between the bed and the dresser. You might be right about the dresser and bed being too bright. I might decide to do a recolor version of it in darker wood.

I'm glad that you liked that I didn't use any CC, and about your request for a reflective mirror, no, I can't do that. If you take a look at my 'Creation Policy' you will find that I do not use anyone else's work, like ever. Also, I don't think a mirror floor would be at the right angle for you to be able to see up her skirt anyways.

Thanks for the comments everyone!
