This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Please read carefully as this is not a custom CAS screen. The files below will hide objects in CAS. Extract into your Downloads folder, remove to uninstall. Read instructions below, don't just donwload all the files. No expansion pack required.


round podium
-------------
wind_CASinvisibleroundpodium.package - makes round rotating podium invisible. The podium still functions as it should, you can rotate your sim the usual way.


CAS objects - select one of three files below
------------
wind_CASinvisibleobjects.package - *updated* removes most of the default objects from CAS screen, leaves only rotating podium and mirror. I removed hanging lights as well in this updated version.

wind_CASinvisibleobjects_nomirror.package - removes all objects, including mirror. Leaves only rotating podium.

wind_CASinvisibleobjects_differentmirror.package - removes most objects, leaves rotating podium and mirror. Replaces mirror with different metal frame type.


mirror frame recolors - select one of two files below
--------------------
wind_CASmirrorrecolor_black.package - black mirror frame.
wind_CASmirrorrecolor_wood.package - wood mirror frame.


family screen objects
---------------------
wind_CASinvisibleobjects_familypart.package - removes all objects from second half of CAS screen, the family screen.


These should make creating custom CAS screens easier . Please test it thoroughly.

Do not upload these files to any other site, link to this thread instead.

Tip: When creating and using new CAS screen you don't have to replace the original one. Leave the original where it should be and place custom CAS!.package file into your Downloads folder instead. It will work just fine.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
