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.

This is a super idea!
Why didn't they put them in a bedroom?
Or even a bathroom!
Well done, my friend, well done!

You'll never guess what happened my dad works for the secret service and the geography project I done has some important data in it so they raided my house last night and snatched my project away then ripped it!

Although I haven't downloaded this CAS, I wanted to tell you that I think it's a great idea, getting ready in an actual bedroom, and you've inspired me to make my own with shelves and dressers and clothes and stuff.

You are really good at picking titles for your stuff, my search for a custom CAS screen has come to an end, thanks

I've never really understood the point of changing the CAS screen until now. I loooove this so much! I just tested it out in my game for the first time and after having the nice outdoor photo session I could never go back to that dreary brick room. Many kudos, this is awesome.

That's because you are using a game with SSNs in it to make your CAS. As described in the tutorials, you need to use an AnyGame without SSN or Pets to create your CAS.

EDIT: apologizes, I fixed the problem (whatever the problem was, I don't know what I did wrong), anyway, this is wonderful. Thank you very much.
