I got tired of the boring look so created one that I would like. After looking around, I decided to share what I did. I hope you all like it. If so, then I may create more and share them! This was fun!

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.


Thanks to these people for the items that made this possible:

Walls: 8DS, Sim Gedoehns and Well Dressed Sims
Rugs: WindKeeper (sorry don't remember the site)
Plants: TSR (creator: Nanshi) and MangoSims
Closet: VitaSims

You need to go to these sites get their items if you want to use this CAS. I am sorry I didn't realise that this was needed when creating the CAS file. I will remember that when I do the next one.

I went to those sites and couldnt find the items, so could you put them in a zip file here? I really want to try this it looks awesome but it would be useless without the items

Awesome! Is the rug & closet doors downloadable 4 the game somewhere as objects & doors in the game? Never mind, didn't read enough...

Thanks so much! I was looking for a nice CAS that wasn't crowded with objects. Thanks again!
