Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update: I've added another version, I never liked the color of the wood on the bed in the first version, so this uses a different bed that has a much closer wood tone to the dresser. The back porch wasn't changed at all. Its still Basegame, still no CC, and shiny-new!

Anyone else wonder why Create-A-Sim is in a photo studio? It kinda makes sense, but I was getting REALLY sick of brick. How about we get our sims dressed in a room that has a dresser? I've always thought getting dressed in a bedroom was a much nicer idea, but I haven't seen any CAS screens that are done in bedrooms! This bedroom is purposefully neutral, considering Sims of all kinds will be getting ready there. I created this CAS screen using my Mac (only has the base-game) with no CC, and tested it on my PC (all EPs) so it is compatible with EVERYBODY!

New Version

The other room was NEVER on my favorites list, how many times do you drag the entire family to a photo studio to have professional photos taken? How about instead, we call up Uncle Jack and have him come over to our house, set up his camera, lights, and backdrop on the back porch? There is great outdoor lighting and the kids can play on the swing set until it's photo time, works out great for everybody!


P.S. I love reading comments, leave me a couple?

Additional Credits:
To Aspyr, for being slow enough with the Mac versions of the EPs that I switched to PC sims around NL (OFB for PC users, they were seriously an entire EP behind, gah.)

Also, Tribute to my Uncle Jack, a professional photographer who did very nice 'on location' shots.

Thanks for the comments smartcat. I did wonder a bit about the mirror, but I was thinking that you usually don't have a mirror standing out in the middle of your bedroom to begin with. I figure the mirror was pulled out from the corner between the bed and the dresser. You might be right about the dresser and bed being too bright. I might decide to do a recolor version of it in darker wood.

I'm glad that you liked that I didn't use any CC, and about your request for a reflective mirror, no, I can't do that. If you take a look at my 'Creation Policy' you will find that I do not use anyone else's work, like ever. Also, I don't think a mirror floor would be at the right angle for you to be able to see up her skirt anyways.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Another wonderful idea! Thanks Phaenoh!
I don't think I've ever actually wanted to download a CAS before. But I'm getting this one.

Gorgeous Phaenoh! I don't usually download CAS Screens but this is nice and not stuffed with tons of Custom Content like most CAS Screens are.

Very nice layout. I even tried to mock the CAS rooms to actually let my Sims live in the CAS house (with the obvious liberties taken for the extra rooms of the house)

You were doing this with mine? Or one you made yourself? Cuz I ended up building a rather elaborate living room set and then ended up not using it. I was thinking about creating my 'CAS' house and uploading it. Then I forgot. Thanks for reminding me!

I LOVE you. Seriously. I love everything that you do, but this is the most awesome of all. I hated the CAS screen so much, and I didn't really care for any of the replacements. This one is perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. THANK YOU!

A bedroom? With a DRESSER? Insanity! <3

And it's gone, baby, gone.

Oh my gosh! A bedroom with a dresser? You've lost your mind. You've officially left the building.
No, no no I love it!

Exactly! Thanks, Phaenoh! It's perfect.

I just thought I should say what a rational and obvious idea this was! I'm so proud to see that at least SOME of us haven't gotten away from the normal things in life...

Amazing job on the CAS screen. Love all your work.

It looks great! I've never used a custom CAS before (some are just too...messy) But I love the simple look, and as you say, the way you've done it works well with any Sims being created. For goth sims we can pretend that they are at a relative's house for the family photo.

Thanks ^_^

I've never downloaded a CAS before as I was wary of them not suiting all sims... but this is very neutral and a great idea, so I will finally download a new CAS =)

Why are there two downloads? What is the difference between them?
