Hi all!
This is quite a different upload than usual.

I made this CAS background screen a few months ago, and my initial goal was to make a complete 3D Model of the room and use it as the CAS Background! I tried and tried A LOT but unfortunately it turned out to be a much more challenging project than I first thought so I decided to scrap it, and keep the background as a 2D image. Along with the screen, I also included 5 bonus items, I separated from the original CAS_backdrop from TS2!

NOTES:

1) Custom item names and descriptions. (coming up with these wasn't easy, and they're still bad )

2) The mirror in the background is not functional as this is a 2D image and not a 3D model. (kind of obvious but figured I'd mention nevertheless)

3) When creating a pet, the pet might look like its "floating" when looking from certain angles. (look at image above) Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about that however this quite a minor detail, I personally don't mind it.

4) I wanted to convert all the paintings that are hanging around the CAS room, unfortunately most of their textures were very pixelated and didn't look right. I did however convert "The Lady on Red" as its texture was acceptable. I also included custom recolors from paintings and renders that I edited, from TS2.


What's included?
This mod adds a brand new CAS Background screen along with 5 brand new objects taken from the original TS2 backdrop! You can find everything by searching: "simsi45"

The following items are included:
1) Industrial Spotlight by CAS-Furnishings Inc. found under Lighting->Ceiling Lights for 90$ [Power COnsumption: 10]
2) Industrial Standing Mirror by CAS-Furnishings Inc. found under Decoration-> Mirrors for 275$
3) Photo Backdrop by CAS-Furnishings Inc. found under Decorations -> Misc. for 555$
4) The Lady on Red by Lancing Witthmee founder under Decorations -> Paintings for 350$ [Environment:4 Flirty Emotional Boost:2]
5) The Platform of Life by CAS-Furnsihings Inc. found under Decorations -> Rugs for 85$



So yeah that's all for this upload. I really tried to capture the "warm" atmosphere of the original room and I have to say I'm quite happy with the result!
Happy simming

You should contact littledica for help. I think he is the only one that successfully created a 3D cas room. I'd LOVE to have this room in 3D.
