Wanna try something new and fresh for your Create A Sim Room? This 18 new variations, 9 pastel & 9 intense tones, are the perfect companion you need to turn your CAS into the perfect photo studio.

Simple Spotlight Gradient Backgrounds, part of myCASmods (upcoming collection), turns the CAS into a stage to your Sims, ready to take the best pictures of them. This Mod is based on Pretty 'N' Plain Solid Backgrounds just adding a shiny point of light. One small thing this Mod differs from others is the presence of the Blob. Many creators remove it because they don't like the shadow casted by the Sim on the floor, but I've managed to make it look decent and better fitting.

How this exactly works?

- Substitutes the default Create A Sim background with one opaque color.
- Mix & Match with custom lighting settings, such as Lighting Mod by Nothern Siberia Winds.
- Horses, infants and newest occults are also compatible.

Will conflict with another Mod?

Conflicts with any file that modifies the same resources. I don't recommend it but, still, you can use any Blob Remover to delete the shadow under the Sim if you want to.

What file(s) should I download?

Make sure you JUST INSTALL ONE OF THEM, because having multiple files of this kind in the Mods folder *could* cause unpredictable results and visual glitches.


(If you have any trouble let me know as PM or via email)

- 2.0 (06/14/24): Rebuilt for DX11 compatibility.
+ Works fine on DX9 too!
+ File size reduced in 95% thanks to the DDS compresion.
+ Colors are brighter and more intense than ever before.
+ 18 current tones now belong to The Basics Palette.

- 1.0 (06/10/24): Initial launchment. I'm currently working on a hot fix for DX11, since it makes the textures appear blank/broken if you choose the game to run with it. Meanwhile, mark the DX9 Checkbox from the Game Options to properly render the CAS Rooms.
