Cold anger - NL CAS screen

Not exactly cozy...

This is my first result with experimenting about ways to get rid of Maxis accessories in the CAS screens, so it had to be a little bare to get the point across... Though I couldn't help playing with the pretty funny fire thingies.


In case you're willing to give this a try, you'll need the following custom content :
- Numenor's WallWindow glass set V.2
- Moon_Ez's Black Tinted Glass Set
- Peter_halland's para_totalmirror

The file goes in your downloads folder, and can be put in a subfolder.

And this can't break your game - you just have to remove the package from your downloads and you CAS screen will revert to the default one, all Maxis stuff included.

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

How did you get rid of the pictures? I would really want to know unless it is your personal secret. Is there maybe a tutorial on this somewhere?

Fabiana,

Thank you for your nice comments, here and on other threads!
I'm really glad that you like my work.


Pixie,

It's not exactly a secret and I'm totally willing to share what I found, but there's no tutorial yet and I learned the hard way how one is hard to write in a language that is not your own...
In short, I included in the package some files that overwrite original game files: edited geometric data containers, textures and material definitions. In plain English, I deleted some objects, and made those that couldn't be removed invisible.
It can't harm your game, the modifications are active only as long as this package is in your downloads.

Now, I don't think this CAS! can be used as a base for creating other ones, since I'm not sure that these files will be retained in the cloned CAS.

What I intend to do, since not everybody likes to mess with game files in SimPE, and as soon as I have some time for that, is to upload these files separately, with different options you could choose from : "totally bare", "cameras only", "mirror only" and so on... Then you'd just have to put the chosen option package in your downloads, and the modifications would apply to any CAS you'd create or download.

I normally try to avoid CAS screens with custom content in them, but this is amazing !! I absolutely adore the "waiting to be photographed" screen. Very unique
