CAS New Look Again

I felt really bad that I had uploaded a CAS file earlier not realizing that those people that don't have the objects, won't be able to use it, so this time I created a bedroom / outside CAS for those of you that couldn't use my 1st one. This one has all Maxis default items. No recolors or anything. So please take this as an apology for the 1st one I did.





Instructions on installing CAS screens:
**Open up the "My Computer" icon on your desktop and go to:
C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\GlobalLots\ ( and
C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 2 University\TSData\Res\GlobalLots\ if you have University )
**Rename both the files in those directories called CAS!.package, to something, for example: CAS!_Original.package
**Now open up the download, and copy the downloaded CAS file to that directory.
**Run The Sims 2, and go to "Create a sim" mode, and you should now see the modified screen.

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

Wow, that's a really good CAS.
And clever idea using the bedroom and front of house.

Anyone have any idea how to use custom CAS screens in Uni yet?

Yea I do, it's done the same way, but it's just another CAS file used by Uni I'll look into doing it next.

It worked great...Now if you can just get some for the Creat Students CAS then I'll be happy.. Wondering how this will work in the next expansion pack?

It should be fine when the expantions come out seeing how I didn't add anything or hack anything to create these CAS, they are all Maxis stuff, just looks different. But in the worst case, if it should goof up, that is why you kept and named the original CAS so you can put it back if you want to later.

I get bored with the look a lot, so I tend to have about 20 CAS files zipped with the images of them (so I can tell them apart) and change them around. I know, I am probably :werd: LOL

It would not work with the University Create Students. In the globallots directory there are 2 files, Cas! package and YACas! package... which one do you change

The YACas is the screen that is used when creating a Young Adult in Universaty... Leave it be, This CAS is for when you create a sim in your town. I have to create a seperate one for the Universaty create a sim screen.

Sadly you can't use the same CAS for the 2, they have to be created and installed seperately for everyone.

Rythela: You have to use a cheat code ( boolprop constrainFloorElevation false ) when you do this, you can move the item around as it needs to be done. Make sure you turn it back off when done.

ziggybec2005: It shouldn't have, I used no hacks, nor custom content for this CAS. If you have University installed, then I can't see why there would be an issue. I am still using this one myself
