Picked upload! XCAS core mod: more tattoo locations, edit naked outfit, slider hack, body hair, more - update 5/23/16 Steam version added.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The 1.69.43 (the second patch of patch 1.69 released around 1/12/16) Basics and Full versions are now available.

The 1.38 version of the skintone panel mod is compatible with 1.38 to 1.69.43 and does not need to be updated.

A 1.67 Steam-compatible version is added. (This is the latest version on Steam.)


The first and second 1.69 and all other previous versions, now including Steam versions 1.50 - 1.66, are still available from the XCAS obsolete versions site: https://sites.google.com/site/cmarxcas/ - Please note the new address!

Have you thought that the game tattoo locations are a bit... limited? Do you have custom sliders or want to increase slider range? Would you like some of your sims to wear a ring or earring when naked? Or do you have custom accessories that you'd like your sim to wear in the shower without having to give them the 'Never Naked' trait? XCAS can do that, plus a few more things.

** This is a CORE mod. It is not compatible with AwesomeMod or any other CORE mod except (probably) Consort's Weight and Fitness Integration. It IS compatible with the NRaas mods. **

Core vs non-core versions:

Twallan liked this idea so much that he's made it into an extension of NRaas Master Controller, a VERY useful non-core mod that adds new menus and functions for sims and objects in the game. This extension adds the new tattoo locations to the MasterController Basic/Tattoo function. This means those who prefer to use AwesomeMod or Extended Game Core as a core mod can do so and have the added tattoo locations too!

Here's the link for MasterController and the tattoo extension addon: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/MasterController

So a huge thanks goes to Twallan for doing this - not to mention taking the pressure off me to try making this non-core!

And before you ask, cmar_XCAS_corefullxx.package and the Master Controller tattoo extension are NOT compatible. Use only one. XCAS and Master Controller without the tattoo extension ARE compatible.

Now back to our regularly scheduled mod description:

What it is:

XCAS is a CORE mod designed to be limited to CAS functions. While it does less than more extensive core mods, it's also less likely to have side effects. It is not compatible with any other core mod that replaces UI.dll, like AwesomeMod or Extended Game Core. However, there are some packages included that can be used without the core mod component.

What it does:

Core mod packages-- download and use only ONE of these, cmar_XCASfull1.xx.zip OR cmar_XCASbasics1.xx.zip.

XCAS basics:
-- Increases the number of facial sliders the game can use from 20 to 75
-- Optionally, increases the facial slider range by 2 times, 3 times, or 4 times
-- Enables the facial hair/beard panel for females (New with patch version 1.39)
-- Enables the body hair panel for females and teens
-- Enables the tattoo panel for teens
-- Optionally, you can edit the naked outfit in the dresser "Plan Outfit" game function and in CAS* (See the Known Issues section)

XCAS full version:
-- All of the above plus:
-- Adds many more tattoo locations

'Extras' packages that can be used with or without the core mod--

-- Optionally, expands the skin tone picker panel
-- Optionally, increases the body slider range by 2 times. (Fat/thin, fit, and breast size)
-- A package that enables a few base game accessories for the naked outfit
-- A package that lets you tattoo naked (With the sim naked, not you. :D) ** This package will also make sims naked in the body hair panel.

Added tattoo locations:
  • Full body
  • Full face
  • Forehead
  • Cheek
  • Throat
  • Upper breast
  • Ribs/side of chest
  • Hip
  • Lower belly
  • Back of hand
  • Palm
  • Back of shoulder
  • Lower low back (tramp stamp)
  • Butt cheek
  • Thigh - front
  • Thigh - back
  • Calf - front
  • Calf - back
  • Outer ankle
  • Foot
  • Pubic (1.22 version and up, optional)
  • Nipple (1.22 version and up, optional)

Installation:

This mod now comes in two flavors: the original, full version and Basic. I realize there are many people who want the slider hacks and the ability to edit the naked outfit but aren't very interested in more tattoo locations, and XCAS Basics is for them. The Full version still has all the extra tattoos.

Please read the Readme files included in each zip file - they will tell you which packages to install to tailor the mod to your taste. Don't just throw every package in the zip into your game - some of them are different versions of the same feature, giving you choices about how you want the mod to work. Note that you can use the 'Extras' packages without the core mod.

Otherwise, install like any other packages. The core package either has to go in the Documents mods location or you need to have d3dx9_31.dll properly installed.

You MUST use a version of the core package that's made for the patch version of your base game. If you don't know the patch version of your game, start the Sims 3 Game Launcher and hover your mouse over the little icons at the bottom left of the Launcher screen. Your base game version is the first three digits of the number you see when hovering over the first icon in the row - for example 1.33. When a new patch comes out, please be patient and I will update the mod.

Delete your cache packages from 'Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3' when installing.

Removal:

Remove the XCAS packages and/or the extras. If you remove the core component and leave the locations package, the sims should keep their non-game located tattoos until you edit them.

Again, delete cache files after uninstalling.

Known Issues and Compatibility:

The core component is not compatible with any other core mod, like AwesomeMod, Extended Game Core, or aWT's slider mods. It does appear to be compatible with Consort's Weight and Fitness Integration mod.

With Supernatural there seems to be a glitch in which ALL male body hair gets set to werewolf hair if you have cmar_XCAS_BodyHairforTeens_basegame.package installed. I have no clue why this should happen since those are simple default replacements, but I recommend using this teen body hair mod instead which does not cause this: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=486582 As of 1.39 patch version I've withdrawn my EA teen body hair package since it seems to have some kind of glitch.

When you edit the Naked outfit in CAS, please be aware that leaving the Clothing section while in the naked outfit and then returning can cause other changes (skin, hair, face, etc.) to be lost as soon as you change clothing categories. Note that as of 1.42 the trick of going into tattoos or body hair before returning to clothing no longer works.

The package that expands the skin tone picker and the range of the body sliders is not compatible with any other mod that affects the CAS basics screen - the screen defining the age, gender, skin tone, and fat/thin/fit/breast sliders.

Troubleshooting:

If your game crashes on startup, most likely you have your mods/packages folder in the old Program Files location. I strongly encourage you to look up the help on this site for package installation and switch to the new Documents location. It'll make everything easier.

If you get an error message on startup saying "It looks like you have installed an unofficial game modification that does not match your current version of the sims 3", you may have the wrong version of XCAS for your game patch version. Or you may have another mod that doesn't match your game patch version.

If the mod is installed correctly but doesn't work or has strange effects, you may have another core mod installed and there's a conflict, or you're running it with the wrong patch version. Also make sure you don't have both XCASfull and XCASbasics installed - they will conflict with each other.

To check for conflicts, I highly recommend Delphy's Dashboard: http://www.modthesims.info/d/387006

** If you need to report a problem - please, please, PLEASE tell me more than 'It doesn't work'. Post exactly what's happening, what functions are working and not working, any error messages, where and how you have your custom content set up, and what other game mods you have - not clothes or hair or sliders or decorations, but what mods you have that change the way the game plays. It may also be helpful if you post your operating system and what expansion/stuff packs you have and whether you've checked for conflicts with Delphy's Dashboard. **

How long will it take to update for a patch????

Well, that depends. Ideally a new version will be out the next day, but if EA has added significant new features or changes to CAS tattoo or clothing and/or the Plan Outfit and Stylist options it will take longer as I have to update and test my code. Also I'm not always aware that a new patch has come out (despite doing a lot of modding, I don't play the game every day) so it's not a bad idea to post in the thread to tell me. However, if there are five posts above yours telling me, it's really not necessary to add another one.

*********** Previous Versions of XCAS: ************

All previous versions of XCAS and Extras have been moved to a new location: XCAS Obsolete Versions page

Translations:

The labels are translated into German, Spanish, French, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, Finnish, and Danish. If you'd like to give me more translations for the tattoo locations above and for Naked or Nude, please post them and I'll add them to the package when I update.

Upload 3/10/2015:
Added cmar_EABodyHairforTeens - enables EA adult body hairs for teens and in Martial Arts, Career, SkinnyDipping, Outerwear, and Maternity clothing categories.

** 11/17/2015 : cmar_XCASbasics1.69.zip and cmar_XCASfull1.69.zip - compatible with patch 1.69 which came out November 2015 **
  • XCAS full version has all the features described above. XCASbasics has everything except the added tattoo locations. Use only one!
  • If you already have a recent version (1.22 or later), all you need to replace is the core package (either Basics or Full) for the core mod.
  • Don't forget to remove the old version of the core when updating.
  • The 1.38 skintone panel packages do NOT need to be updated for 1.69. (SkinTonePanel expands the skintone pick panel only. SkinTonePanel_BodySliders also expands the range of the fat/thin, muscle, and breast size sliders.)
  • Clear caches when installing or uninstalling!
  • Be aware that leaving the Clothing section while in the naked outfit and then returning can cause other changes (skin, hair, face, etc.) to be lost. You can use naked clothing if you need to adjust sliders with the sim nude. Snaitf's True Nudists or my Nouveau Nudists, both available on SexySims2.com, are a good choice.
  • In the Stylist screen the Outerwear button falls too low and partially on the Naked outfit button. Both are still usable. I haven't yet found a cause or solution for this.

Changes with 1.69:
  • None.

Changes with 1.69.42:
  • None.

Changes with 1.69.43:
  • None.

Please note that I only updated the versioning for 1.69, 1.69.42, and 1.69.43 since there are (supposedly) no changes to the game code. If users report problems I'll go through the process of a complete new version.

I have no major mods, only no-intro and an extension on the skin panel. Will this override them or the LN sliders?
Lab Assistant
#52 Old 21st Feb 2011 at 1:29 PM
Well I was so glad about this mod first, but meanwhile I got some problems with this mod. Everytime my sim gets a tatoo on a non-default place, my sim AND the tattoo-artist get invisible. And they're not stuck "down under" (so I could fix it with DebugEnabler), they really get invisible, just the plumbob of my sim is still to see...I had to start a new game, I couldn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions? And no, I don't work with any other CoreMod....

@tarasomers: This will not conflict with No Intro. The "SkintonePanel" packages WILL conflict with any other skin panel extension. There's no conflict with the LN sliders.

@Simfan2000: I haven't seen this problem in the final version. Is it only with the tattoo-artist? Could you post which of my mods and which other mods you have installed? Did you install the NRaas Master Controller and did you add the tattoo extension for it?

During testing I did see sims disappear in CAS because of an outfit problem but they reappeared when I changed them to another outfit. Have you tried that?

Well, my english is not soooo good, but I will try to explain, what happenes: When the tattoo-session finished, the tattoo-artist dissapeared and my sim had a VERY ugly looking hairstyle (like it corrupted with the tattoo maybe). So I went to a mirror and wanted to change the hairstyle and AFTER THAT my sim got invisible too. I didn't recognize any other sim on the lot, so I don't know if anyone else disappeared. I will check it next time.

I also tried the MC-Version instead, but there I couldn't get the tatoos where I wanted, because every location (breast, leg, arm...) had only the "leg" sub-locations O_O. For example even for "back" tattoos I could only choose "ankle...." and so on.

I got many CCs, but 99 % are clothes, hairstyles etc. Game-play mods are:

Treeag - Put away all books
Treeag - Store in fridge
Faster showering, toilet, toothbrushing
Debug Enabler
Overwatch
Jonha-Sliders Butt, Waist, Hip
NoMosaic
Crewstore breastfix for t-shirts

Is there any of them conflicting with your mod?

Edit:

Finally I think I got it. I removed all of these mods and tested yours alone. No problems. Now I re-added them one by one and finally Jonhas Sliders seem to make trouble. I will test some more tattoo-places but it seems, the problem's got solved

Hi CmarNYC, can you help, I just downloaded your mod. But it dose not work, when placed in my doc's folder, nothing shows up in the game. But when the mods folder is moved back to programe files, the game crashes just after the introw movie. Please help?

#56 Old 21st Feb 2011 at 10:03 PM
@Simfan2000: Glad you found the problem, but as far as I know the only way Jonha's sliders would conflict with this is if you had a mod to increase the number of sliders limit, not the actual sliders.

@crashdodgers: Please read the help for installing custom content - you probably don't have your game set up properly for CC in your documents folder. The crashing after the intro probably means you don't have d3dx9_31.dll installed in your game, which you would need for core mods in the Program Files location.

As far as I can tell, they're very different mods. AM is all about fixing annoyances and personalizing the game mechanics, whereas MC's purpose is to allow you to tweak your sims in ways that Pescado's mods would never let you.

Also a suggestion which i forgot to mention Cmar, add a "Slider Hack" into the descriptiontext and also the tags, so people instantly see that you offer this useful extra and also find it in the rather limited searchfunction. I for instance don't need tattoo placement, but i like the mod, because you offer a sliderhack in it.

Does the core version of this mod work with Twallan's errortrap mod? They are both core mods, I don't have Master Controller installed in my game, (still reading on the functions and if it's suited to my particular gaming style), but I love his errortrap mod and your mod for adding more tattoo's. Do I need to pick one?

The two Core-Mods override different core files, so they are compatible, and can be installed at the same time.
