Un-black list certain items in CAS?

Post by LisaDKG » July 14th, 2019, 10:58 am

Following on a more recent post regarding right-clicking to blacklist clothes and hair in CAS, is there a way to UN-DO a selection? I was a little too voracious the first time I created my black-list and would like to re-introduce a few clothes and hair styles into my game. I have a feeling this must involve removing the tuning and invalid parts packages and starting completely fresh with right-clicking but I thought I would check in case a shortcut exists.

In another vein, I just bought Into the Future simply for new content and I could cry at the weird and unusable hair and clothes included. I've right-clicked almost the entire suite. BUT should the occasion arise in which I wanted to play the ITF world (I can't remember the name) is there a way to create a separate blacklist of only ITF appropriate items that I would then insert into my files when playing that world? Or would this involve the same lengthy right-clicking procedure? I know that the townies are all in their ITF finest in the beginning but what about when using immigration?

For me, Dresser has got to be one of the most important mods in the suite and being able to blacklist has reduced sooo much frustration. Thanks again to anyone who's had a part in designing, testing and up-keeping these mods!

I think it is:
MC / Settings / CAS / Blacklist / Remove Blacklist Part

There are a lot of EA clothes not categorized properly, to manage and change this you can use in addition
Blacklisting CASP, see here for more instructions
With this tool you can manage the categories of an item and also if it shall be valid for random (when sims age up)

It is very helpfull too ;-)

It should be noted that EasyCASP Editor is great but it only works on Patch 1.67 (and prior) disc installs. It will unfortunately not function on Patch1.69/Origin nor on 1.67/Steam setups, which many players are now using. I've added a warning to that effect on the tutorial page linked to.

Thanks for the info Igazor. I didn't know this, I have a disc installation.
I wonder if it is possible to find a workaround for steam installation. Is there any CASThumbnails.package somewhere on your computer?

My idea is, if there is a CASThumbnails.package under a different path than disc installations:
- create the 3 folders Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Thumbnails in \Documents\ as a "dummy"
- copy
your steam version CASThumbnails.package into the Thumbnails folder
- start EasyCASP (maybe the MOD and \Packages folder has to be created too befor startin EasyCasp)- if the Tool can read your CASThumbnails.package I think you can start to edit everything
- save and copy the file into your Steam Mods folder

This is just a suggestion, I don't have a steam installation and cannot try it out to proof this, but maybe it works.

The issue is not with CASThumbnails, Mods\Packages, or any other part of the TS3 user game folder in Documents. Our user game folders have the same structure across any of these kinds of installations. The issue is that the game's executables in Program Files or Program Files (x86) are not where programs like EasyCASP and SaveCleaner (v2.x only, v1 is still okay) expect to find them. They generate an error on startup because of this and quit because they cannot find the game program resources that they require.
