Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
One of the biggest issues in Sim creation is that Sims tend to have a rather high nose, a large forehead and a high head in general.

So I made, inspired by some requests, and looking at some Sims in the "Creator Feedback" forum, this CAS slider, which should fix many of the problems and is very easy to use.

This slider can move the upper part of the head (forehead, eyes, hair and ears) up and down, adjusting the nose length accordingly. This slider is very clean, there is no deformation and no clipping. I use it on all of my Sims, and I think it's one of the most useful sliders there.

The slider works on all ages (except baby of course), the effect is scaled proportionally on toddlers and children.

General info:

As with all facial sliders, this slider is genetically inheritable. Install it as every other slider. If you need further info, how to install sliders and how to override the slider limit if needed, look at my 10 CAS Slider download

Known issues:
Some hair and hats has wrong bone assignments, so the hair will not stick to the head. The vertices should be assigned to "HeadNew" (or "HeadDome") instead of "Head", but they aren't. Affected is the basegame female bob hair and Oepu's short version of it. A package to fix the adult female EA hair is attached, others may follow, although I'm really bad at using Milkshape so you shouldn't expect too much.

Compatibility:
The slider works with all currently known game versions and should work with all future versions, unless EA does big changes to the slider system.

Additional Credits:
I want to thank Delphy for his Small Editors and everyone else, wo did research and wrote tools, that helped me creating this (s3pi, s3pe, MilkShape exporters/importers, Blender, Wolfram Alpha, Gimp, and many more).

The Sim is some random Sim generated in CAS and the CAS background (barely visible on the screenshot) is "warm tones at dusk" by joninmobile

does this work for the latest patch (1.34)??? Because my game has been crashing lately and I believe this may be the problem. I am not certain for sure though. Just asking. :D

EDIT: I have since deleted this slider. My game no longer crashes. Please Update to 1.34!!!

I can't believe EA would let their "coneheads" be published - but should I really be surprised? Thank you so much for your sliders! Now my Sims will look normal. :)

hello i have been trying to download this for quite some time and i have read up on it, after i extract the files, what do i do, i have a macbook and i use keka, i must admit i am not what most people would call "tech savvy" at times, especially in the area of downloading things, i have tried to click "open with" but all that comes up is keka, i click that and it turns into some folder, i click open with, and then keka, and the whole thing just loops around over and over until i realised i messed up so bad so i was wondering if you knew the next step or possibly what i am doing wrong, sorry if i bothered you thank you also i forgot, it says someting about a fatal error when it gets to the wireless diagnostic thing, or anything when i try to download it to sims i am very lost, thank you for reading :D
