Mediterranean-ish CAS screen

A CAS screen I created. I originally was going to post an entire outdoor one, but it made my game too choppy and I don't know how to mask the other objects. I think this was a fair alternative, however.

There are a few mistakes that I made but They're minor and hard to notice. The reflection in the mirror, the unpainted upper half of the room of the backdrop (only visible if you have the zoomable CAS camera mod) and the missing roof of the building outside. Also, the room where the whole family is present is dark, I know. I actually like it better that way. If you don't, you can fix it yourself.

If you don't like it, tell me why. And better yet, tell me how to fix what I'm doing wrong.

Now I'm going to attempt the install instructions:

In my opinion the best place to extract the files is in your "My Documents" folder because there's a few miscellaneous items in the folder. Once you've done that copy the CAS!.package file and go to C:\Program Files*\EA GAMES\The Sims 2**\TSData\Res\GlobalLots\ , (there are no asteryxes or however you spell it)rename the already present CAS!.package file to something else (such as old_CAS!.package), and paste the file there.

*Assuming you installed in the default location
**If you have any expansion packs, you will need to go to their subfolders as well

If you possibly have any other questions let me know.
Thanks,
Dweenyo

Thank you! It isn't too choppy or anything? it's about 400kb bigger than the original. It's a little choppy for me, but most of my graphics are on high, so I am wondering if the same is happening for other people.

I'm glad you do. I didn't expect so many positive comments (and no negative ones) especially in my first upload. Thanks you guys.

It does slow my game down. The problem is that there are way to many trees on the lot. Try removing some of the larger ones.
