danieeel - you cannot create your new cas with seasons, you must use the base game starter and make it without seasons

I've been having a problem getting mine to load as a CAS screen, but I didn't follow all the intructions 100% accurately, so I'm not complaining.

I was wondering if there is a workaround for Seasons that does not include the base game starter program. Has anyone tried:

a) adding a roof to the house... or would that keep the sim from being placed properly? If lighting is an issue, could you use a greenhouse roof or a custom floor tile that is transparent/translucent?

b) Create the new neighborhood and change winter to spring or summer? Or does the CAS automatically pick up the season from the other community lots in town, no matter what town you are in?
There would be the problem of rain, but it seems like there would be a lower chance of freezing/overheating.

Edit
This didn't work! oops.
However when I re-followed the instructions, the CAS worked fine for me. Thanks for the great tutorial!

LMAO... I read the instructions very carefully and followed them with one exception, fully expecting to accept the consequences... I have Seasons and didn't use the basegame starter... I've read all the frustrated posts in here, and not to laugh at anyone else's frustrations, I've been LMAO watching my Simmies drop like flies. Now, I'm going back and do it correctly. Thanks for the tutorial. It is very well done and VERY easy to follow.

Fall_Out_Boy_Rocks - Not permanently, no. You will have your custom CAS in when you have the CAS!.package in your Downloads folder. If/when you take that file out, you'll get back the original, or can then choose a different CAS screen to use. It's just a temporary override, not a permanent overwrite.

On your computer you should go to MyComputer/Hard Disk Drives/Local Drive (C: )/Program Files/EAGames/The Sims 2 Open for Business/TSData/Res/Global Lots/CAS! and YCAS!

It has to be there, otherwise you would not be able to open CAS in your game.

Try it.
i have tried this aswell, all i have in my disc's tsdata folder is a folder named control, in there a program named control0. what is wrong with my game!!!??

silly question time. I am trying to do my cas screen and yes one must not use seasons's. lol. I am going to try what windkeeper suggested and place my cas screen directly into my downloads folder as I am having no luck. I am using the basegame starter up to OFB.

Just one question though, is it possible to clone then recolour the curtain backdrop in the family screen?

never mind. I will just download a cas screen cos no matter how much I work on this, its still the same old cas screen.

If you have the Seasons Expansion:
You must use Numenor's BaseGameStarter to create your custom CAS lot without Seasons!! Custom CAS lots created in Seasons will cause all sims made within your new CAS screen to freeze to death. Unless you like simsicles, you'll need to use the BaseGameStarter.


I'm so sorry if this question have been answered one or several times before but; Can you remove the BaseGameStarter once you've created the CAS! ?
I don't understand it and I'm trying to keep mods and hacks at a low level.

Thanks for this great tutorial!

If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?

mira_moone - yes you can remove the base game starter once the cas house is complete (and moved out of the base game). Although having base game starter on your system should not effect your regular game

kopple - you're going to need to start over and follow the directions carefully. There's no way for us to glance at your computer and see which step was missed/misunderstood.

Thank you so so so much for this tutorial! Look at the one I just made, along with the family screen:





Thanks again!

I have done plenty of stupid things in the past. I have the scars -physical and emotional- to prove it. Do I have regrets? No. If anything, I'm proud to have these scars, as trophies of life experience I've gained, and to say, 'Hey, I survived. You can too.'

PS, maybe isn't my english so good, that's because I'm dutch

I tried making a custom CAS with Seasons, and yes the sims started freezing! However, if I select toddler, this seems to stop the sims from freezing! Has anyone else found this?

rubberduck3y6 - that's probably because you can't kill toddlers :P

Uhm, the beginning of this has info for seasons, you must follow it. We do not know of another way to make a working CAS for seasons except for excluding it while you build your CAS)
