Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The 1.69.43 (the second patch of patch 1.69 released around 1/12/16) Basics and Full versions are now available.

The 1.38 version of the skintone panel mod is compatible with 1.38 to 1.69.43 and does not need to be updated.

A 1.67 Steam-compatible version is added. (This is the latest version on Steam.)


The first and second 1.69 and all other previous versions, now including Steam versions 1.50 - 1.66, are still available from the XCAS obsolete versions site: https://sites.google.com/site/cmarxcas/ - Please note the new address!

Have you thought that the game tattoo locations are a bit... limited? Do you have custom sliders or want to increase slider range? Would you like some of your sims to wear a ring or earring when naked? Or do you have custom accessories that you'd like your sim to wear in the shower without having to give them the 'Never Naked' trait? XCAS can do that, plus a few more things.

** This is a CORE mod. It is not compatible with AwesomeMod or any other CORE mod except (probably) Consort's Weight and Fitness Integration. It IS compatible with the NRaas mods. **

Core vs non-core versions:

Twallan liked this idea so much that he's made it into an extension of NRaas Master Controller, a VERY useful non-core mod that adds new menus and functions for sims and objects in the game. This extension adds the new tattoo locations to the MasterController Basic/Tattoo function. This means those who prefer to use AwesomeMod or Extended Game Core as a core mod can do so and have the added tattoo locations too!

Here's the link for MasterController and the tattoo extension addon: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/MasterController

So a huge thanks goes to Twallan for doing this - not to mention taking the pressure off me to try making this non-core!

And before you ask, cmar_XCAS_corefullxx.package and the Master Controller tattoo extension are NOT compatible. Use only one. XCAS and Master Controller without the tattoo extension ARE compatible.

Now back to our regularly scheduled mod description:

What it is:

XCAS is a CORE mod designed to be limited to CAS functions. While it does less than more extensive core mods, it's also less likely to have side effects. It is not compatible with any other core mod that replaces UI.dll, like AwesomeMod or Extended Game Core. However, there are some packages included that can be used without the core mod component.

What it does:

Core mod packages-- download and use only ONE of these, cmar_XCASfull1.xx.zip OR cmar_XCASbasics1.xx.zip.

XCAS basics:
-- Increases the number of facial sliders the game can use from 20 to 75
-- Optionally, increases the facial slider range by 2 times, 3 times, or 4 times
-- Enables the facial hair/beard panel for females (New with patch version 1.39)
-- Enables the body hair panel for females and teens
-- Enables the tattoo panel for teens
-- Optionally, you can edit the naked outfit in the dresser "Plan Outfit" game function and in CAS* (See the Known Issues section)

XCAS full version:
-- All of the above plus:
-- Adds many more tattoo locations

'Extras' packages that can be used with or without the core mod--

-- Optionally, expands the skin tone picker panel
-- Optionally, increases the body slider range by 2 times. (Fat/thin, fit, and breast size)
-- A package that enables a few base game accessories for the naked outfit
-- A package that lets you tattoo naked (With the sim naked, not you. :D) ** This package will also make sims naked in the body hair panel.

Added tattoo locations:
  • Full body
  • Full face
  • Forehead
  • Cheek
  • Throat
  • Upper breast
  • Ribs/side of chest
  • Hip
  • Lower belly
  • Back of hand
  • Palm
  • Back of shoulder
  • Lower low back (tramp stamp)
  • Butt cheek
  • Thigh - front
  • Thigh - back
  • Calf - front
  • Calf - back
  • Outer ankle
  • Foot
  • Pubic (1.22 version and up, optional)
  • Nipple (1.22 version and up, optional)

Installation:

This mod now comes in two flavors: the original, full version and Basic. I realize there are many people who want the slider hacks and the ability to edit the naked outfit but aren't very interested in more tattoo locations, and XCAS Basics is for them. The Full version still has all the extra tattoos.

Please read the Readme files included in each zip file - they will tell you which packages to install to tailor the mod to your taste. Don't just throw every package in the zip into your game - some of them are different versions of the same feature, giving you choices about how you want the mod to work. Note that you can use the 'Extras' packages without the core mod.

Otherwise, install like any other packages. The core package either has to go in the Documents mods location or you need to have d3dx9_31.dll properly installed.

You MUST use a version of the core package that's made for the patch version of your base game. If you don't know the patch version of your game, start the Sims 3 Game Launcher and hover your mouse over the little icons at the bottom left of the Launcher screen. Your base game version is the first three digits of the number you see when hovering over the first icon in the row - for example 1.33. When a new patch comes out, please be patient and I will update the mod.

Delete your cache packages from 'Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3' when installing.

Removal:

Remove the XCAS packages and/or the extras. If you remove the core component and leave the locations package, the sims should keep their non-game located tattoos until you edit them.

Again, delete cache files after uninstalling.

Known Issues and Compatibility:

The core component is not compatible with any other core mod, like AwesomeMod, Extended Game Core, or aWT's slider mods. It does appear to be compatible with Consort's Weight and Fitness Integration mod.

With Supernatural there seems to be a glitch in which ALL male body hair gets set to werewolf hair if you have cmar_XCAS_BodyHairforTeens_basegame.package installed. I have no clue why this should happen since those are simple default replacements, but I recommend using this teen body hair mod instead which does not cause this: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=486582 As of 1.39 patch version I've withdrawn my EA teen body hair package since it seems to have some kind of glitch.

When you edit the Naked outfit in CAS, please be aware that leaving the Clothing section while in the naked outfit and then returning can cause other changes (skin, hair, face, etc.) to be lost as soon as you change clothing categories. Note that as of 1.42 the trick of going into tattoos or body hair before returning to clothing no longer works.

The package that expands the skin tone picker and the range of the body sliders is not compatible with any other mod that affects the CAS basics screen - the screen defining the age, gender, skin tone, and fat/thin/fit/breast sliders.

Troubleshooting:

If your game crashes on startup, most likely you have your mods/packages folder in the old Program Files location. I strongly encourage you to look up the help on this site for package installation and switch to the new Documents location. It'll make everything easier.

If you get an error message on startup saying "It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of the sims 3", you may have the wrong version of XCAS for your game patch version. Or you may have another mod that doesn't match your game patch version.

If the mod is installed correctly but doesn't work or has strange effects, you may have another core mod installed and there's a conflict, or you're running it with the wrong patch version. Also make sure you don't have both XCASfull and XCASbasics installed - they will conflict with each other.

To check for conflicts, I highly recommend Delphy's Dashboard: http://www.modthesims.info/d/387006

** If you need to report a problem - please, please, PLEASE tell me more than 'It doesn't work'. Post exactly what's happening, what functions are working and not working, any error messages, where and how you have your custom content set up, and what other game mods you have - not clothes or hair or sliders or decorations, but what mods you have that change the way the game plays. It may also be helpful if you post your operating system and what expansion/stuff packs you have and whether you've checked for conflicts with Delphy's Dashboard. **

How long will it take to update for a patch????

Well, that depends. Ideally a new version will be out the next day, but if EA has added significant new features or changes to CAS tattoo or clothing and/or the Plan Outfit and Stylist options it will take longer as I have to update and test my code. Also I'm not always aware that a new patch has come out (despite doing a lot of modding, I don't play the game every day) so it's not a bad idea to post in the thread to tell me. However, if there are five posts above yours telling me, it's really not necessary to add another one.

*********** Previous Versions of XCAS: ************

All previous versions of XCAS and Extras have been moved to a new location: XCAS Obsolete Versions page

Translations:

The labels are translated into German, Spanish, French, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, Finnish, and Danish. If you'd like to give me more translations for the tattoo locations above and for Naked or Nude, please post them and I'll add them to the package when I update.

Added cmar_EABodyHairforTeens - enables EA adult body hairs for teens and in Martial Arts, Career, SkinnyDipping, Outerwear, and Maternity clothing categories.

** 11/17/2015 : cmar_XCASbasics1.69.zip and cmar_XCASfull1.69.zip - compatible with patch 1.69 which came out November 2015 **
  • XCAS full version has all the features described above. XCASbasics has everything except the added tattoo locations. Use only one!
  • If you already have a recent version (1.22 or later), all you need to replace is the core package (either Basics or Full) for the core mod.
  • Don't forget to remove the old version of the core when updating.
  • The 1.38 skintone panel packages do NOT need to be updated for 1.69. (SkinTonePanel expands the skintone pick panel only. SkinTonePanel_BodySliders also expands the range of the fat/thin, muscle, and breast size sliders.)
  • Clear caches when installing or uninstalling!
  • Be aware that leaving the Clothing section while in the naked outfit and then returning can cause other changes (skin, hair, face, etc.) to be lost. You can use naked clothing if you need to adjust sliders with the sim nude. Snaitf's True Nudists or my Nouveau Nudists, both available on SexySims2.com, are a good choice.
  • In the Stylist screen the Outerwear button falls too low and partially on the Naked outfit button. Both are still usable. I haven't yet found a cause or solution for this.

Changes with 1.69:
  • None.

Changes with 1.69.42:
  • None.

Changes with 1.69.43:
  • None.

Please note that I only updated the versioning for 1.69, 1.69.42, and 1.69.43 since there are (supposedly) no changes to the game code. If users report problems I'll go through the process of a complete new version.

I've never seen this happen, and no one else has mentioned it. IMO it's more likely that another mod is causing your problem, possibly by conflicting with XCAS.

I installed this mod exactly as the instructions said too, and was given an error message saying that my game had crashed because the mod installed did not match up with my version of my game. Since the newest update will not install properly, I couldn't update my game, and instead tried to uninstall the mod. I deleted the .package files and deleted the chache files. Now whenever I start up the sims game and enter "Create-A-Sim", the background turns completely blue and my game crashes. Is there a way to fix this, or will I have to re-install my sims game?

I'm hoping there is an easier way to fix this, as I can't find the case for the base game at this moment...

Would it be at all possible to add tattoo locations for the insides of the arms not just the tops of them, like the inside of the wrist?

@Cryoflostsouls: If you removed all the XCAS packages and deleted your caches, it probably isn't XCAS causing your problems although anything's possible. Please use the MTS game crashing help page to try and troubleshoot your game: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...Loading_Crashes

@Robotical: I'd like to, but the tattoos are applied in the game by wrapping them around the body the same way as the skin, and there's a seam that runs along the inside of the arms and wrists. Because of this, you can't have a tattoo in those locations or it will be cut off at the seam. The best you can do is to use the arm or whole body locations and make a tattoo in two pieces which will fit together on each side of the seam.

Hi, Cmar! Thanks for this mod. It`s really good foundation! All works for me well until I have updated my game to 1.26 ver. I`ve downloaded new version from here but now core file in Basics mod is not work. Have read notepad file and wanna ask. Maybe I have installed it to wrong location? What "The NEW installation location (in your Documents \ Electronic Arts folder)" means? Maybe it was caused by d3dx9_31.dll? Where can I download it if so? Meh, and sorry for my bad English. =\

Here you can see more of my creations and conversions for sims 3. ;) I`ll glad to see your comments in.

It sounds like you're still using the old location, in Program Files. If that's true, you need to remove all the old CC structure, including d3dx9_31.dll, and set up the new Documents location.

Please forgive me if this was already answered earlier. But the Mod works very well. The only issue I'm having is when I change my sim's outfit to "naked" to edit them. After I'm done with editing them, and change it back to the any other outfit, the sim reverts back to the default. All the sliders I done in their face gets undone. It's really annoying. Is there a way to stop that from reverting? Thanks in advance

@Victor_tor: Do you get the warning popup when you start the game saying you're using a scripting mod? Have you tried another core/scripting mod to see if it loads - MasterController for example?

@JPMiyuka: I see what you mean. If you have the sim in the naked outfit, go to the looks or general screen and change facial sliders, skin color, etc., go back into clothing and change the sim into any other outfit, the changes you made are lost.

I found if I go into the hair screen after making facial etc. changes and before going back to clothing, the changes are saved. Try this as a workaround, and I'll look into the problem for the next version of XCAS. Thanks for letting me know!

I have an odd problem I don't really know how to explain.

When I select the Nude option in a Sims' clothing on CAS, there seems to be a ripple that occurs along their midsection. Most notably, their wrists seem to be really badly warped, and the body is just slightly altered. I'll include some screenshots in a few minutes.


The other odd thing about it is, I tried this with multiple "Nude" outfits, and it occurs in all of them except one which alters the size of the breasts.


I do have some aWT sliders, so is this a conflict with that? If so, what do I do about it? Would I have to get rid of this mod entirely? ( ) I tried that link you had at the top of the other person's non-core version, but it only does tattoo locations, and the newest version links directly to its main forum; dead end.

I haven't seen or heard of this issue before. Do you see the same distortion in-game when the sim is nude? In the dresser Plan Outfit? Are you using a replacement female top mesh, maybe one with nipples?

Ahk... it's not a problem with this core, apparently. I tried without it, and the issue still occurs. I don't remember what I installed into the thing years ago


EDIT: For posterity and in case anyone runs across it, I think I found what the problem was; BlooM's nude top replacement packages from 2009. They probably updated them by now.

Awesome. I can never get AwesomeMod to work in my game correctly, but the only reason I even wanted it was for the extra sliders! This is the perfect compromise. Thanks so much!

My husband and I get something similar too (on two seperate computers with different set-up, just to be clear =D ). When we go into the nude clothing category, it changes hair and everyday clothes.

Default Issues with extras mod.
Thank you for the great mod! I have a problem with the cmar_SkinTonePanel_BodySliders.package portion of the extras mod version 2.6 and yes I have the newest version of the main one installed and verified that it works. I also have no other mods that would conflict with your mod. I also deleted the cache but that still did not fix the issue. The cas main body sliders can only stay within the default levels I cannot go above and below the defaults highest and lowest levels. Every other part of the mod works fine but that does not. Thanks for all the help!

That was definitely causing your problem - like it says in the extras instructions readme text, you're supposed to install only one since the two packages replace the same thing. The game will use only one - perhaps the patch changed the load order of the packages.

Default Nraas compatibility and inheritance?
I'm using cmar_SkinTonePanel_BodySliders, is it compatible with the body slider multiplier in Nraas' MasterController?

I was testing if the increased slider settings could be inherited to kids and it didnt quite work out for me. My over-obese sims had 2 very anorexic kids. However, an obese couple I placed in the neigbourhood came up with kids that did look 2x obese as grown ups.

Has anyone played with the slider multiplier and genetic inheritance? I am also using the Nraas StoryProgression mod which has some "advanced genetics" option turned on (don't know if that plays a role)

I haven't tried the body slider multiplier in MasterController so I don't know if they're compatible or not. As far as inheritance, I haven't done any statistics or heard of any.

[StoryProgression] does not alter the inheritance of body shape, it leaves that to EA Standard. It's only purview is the manipulation of facial sliders and skin tone.

The EA genetics code does not clamp Fit, Fat, or Thin body shapes, so you are probably in the clear in that regards.

However the UpdateBodyShape() process, performed periodically on sims, will automatically adjust any abnormal values back into the EA Standard range.
