This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
-----Tiggerypum made a request for better lighting on the family section of this CAS. While I was going for a grotto feel, it was in fact a little too dark for my liking. I may have over compensated a little, so if it looks too bright now, please let me know and I'll give another stab at adjusting it. I'm very happy that people like my first real designed CAS! set, and once I get another idea, I expect I'll make another.

I had made this in another form with Seasons, but between the strays and the shivering, decided that I should redo it.

Now that its not causing those oddities, I think its ready for sharing and I hope you all enjoy it.

I'm not sure it requires all of the marked expansions and SSPs but I think I used stuff from all of those, so best safe than sorry.

Additional Credits:
Windkeeper for the wonderful cas object mods, found here =, so that this is possible.
--Dummy me, I forgot to thank Numenor for making the BaseGameStarter - because without it, I wouldn't have been able to make this screen without the pets and seasons issues.--
MTS2 for being such a wonderful site.

You said that you got rid of a few of the bugs. Does this include the sims freezing to death, random skintones from appearing and shaking cats randowly poping up. If yes then could you please tell me how you did it.

ps. Great CAS screen

To get rid of the random pets and freezing sims, you need to use Numenor's base game starter and use up to right before Pets. Apparently, pets and seasons make CAS screen customization buggy.

This is an absolutely beautiful CAS set. I've never even felt the urge to download one to replace the original, but this one is going straight into my game. I absolutely adore flora related projects and will be eagerly awaiting the YACAS addition if you still feel like making it. I'll pass the link around to my friends - its a beautiful set!

Is there a specific cas object mod we should use? There's a couple.

EDIT: Wait, freezing sims, shaking cats? Does that mean I can't use it with Pets? I should point out I only have Nightlife, Uni and Pets. Well sorta my NL came with the Sims 2 Deluxe.

No, the pets and freezing sims is if you use Seasons and Pets while designing the CAS screen - it works fine with any expansion, to date. I thought there was a list of which of Windkeeper's mods you need to make the default stuff go away. Let me check it again later tonight [ about to head out the door ] and double check.

thank you

What about the thousands of wonderful men and women who are fighting this war without any of the credit or the glory that always goes to those lucky few who just happen to get shot?

This is a pretty background with nice lighting, I really needed a good nature-cas that cooperates with radiance mod, and this does really well. Thank you very much. :)
