FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR CURRENT CAS PRIOR TO INSTALLING THIS FILE.

Here is an improved CAS/family screen for skinners (and anyone who may want a clean, uncluttered look). The CAS is in a medium-dark grey with warm undertones, and the family screen is in a medium cool grey.

Advantages of this CAS:

* Improved screenshots with better lighting and no distracting backgrounds.
* Neutral colors make for better color decisions - the old background creates an optical illusion where red hair files and orange pets do not appear as intense as they really are. (The "orange" areas on the pictured cat have actually been toned down with a lot of yellow).
* Dark colors no longer "disappear" into the background of the family screen.
* Two different shades of grey allows for different screenshot backgrounds, in the event one of the greys causes a "dissapearing" effect with a new item.

You can see examples of these points in the attached images.

YOU NEED THE FOLLOWING CUSTOM CONTENT IN ORDER FOR YOUR CAS TO DISPLAY PROPERLY

Windkeeper's Empty CAS Screen: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?p=1244249

* wind_CASinvisibleroundpodium.package
* wind_CASinvisibleobjects.package
* wind_CASinvisibleobjects_familypart.package

The rest of the content is Maxis. I'm not entirely sure which expansions they came from, so I ticked every box I thought would be a possibility.

ETA: I am now pretty sure that this CAS only works with the same setup I had when I made this (Uni, NL, OFB, Pets and GLS). Sorry.
