The white in CAS. It might just be me, though.

Few weeks ago I took the files posted in this thread and created something very similar (with a little different grayscale). I kept some of the original colors (fonts, trait icons and some more). If i knew you are still working on your gray ui I wouldn't post it but well here it is: http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=579123
Sorry for that, thought you abandoned the idea.

I don't have the source file here but it's the TheSims3.com background colored in.

And I do agree, the colours could use tweaking. There's too much contrast right now, it's very distracting. What I do like about the original UI tint is that it is fairly neutral and as such, not distracting or hard to look at. I do think it would be cool if there was more to it than just giving the whole thing a different colour. But it took quite some time to poorly redesign every element in just one screen, and I didn't even rearrange or reshape any of it.

Awesome, I'll give it go.

@Dino_rex I noticed there are 3 .package files. Do I put all 3 in my mods folder, or just one?

Wow, I missed that, it's beautiful!! Don't apologize, that's why I posted the files. I'd love to see lots of UIs come out.

@Grijze Pilion - Alverdinesims had a nice White UI here: http://alverdinesims.tumblr.com/pos...e-ui-its-pretty

I think she has the files- if some green accents are added, it'll come pretty close.

Wow, at first glance, that looked like Sims 4 to me.

Yeah, it looks great. But on closer inspection, the low contrast also looks a little bit weird.

Hi @GrijzePilion, got your PM- hope you don't mind if I kind of answer it here:

I don't have those files anymore, I was simply experimenting with the method and files that dino-rex kindly shared. There were too many issues I came across trying to get a nice looking light grey/white one and yes, low contrast and hard to distinguish buttons were one. If I increased contrast any more it lost that nice 'flat design' look since the UI has this slight gradient over everything that looks bad when pronounced.
And annoyingly, some of the text is actually light blue instead of dark blue and it was lost on the white background. I know there's a way to change text colour but I didn't think my efforts were good enough to bother doing that as well.

The post jje1000 linked to was me lamenting my poor Photoshop skills and begging for someone else with more skill and patience to make something similar

I think it looks good and with a little more work, I'd definitely use it in everyday gameplay. I wouldn't even mind the life states menu being buggered up; I loathe Supernatural and everything related to it.

for someone that follow the tutorial but have some problems with change some icons and doesnt have the game in english

the problem is by the lenguage, for example , i have my sims 3 in spanish, and the sims 3 icon in the main menu doesnt change, that is because the logo say "los sims 3",and not the "sims 3", so that means it is other IMG file,in order to modify them you need the logo in the proper lenguage. you can find the sims 3 logos in the Fullbuild0.package just open it with the S3PE, and search for logo_small_ (lenguage, for expample es_ES in this case), you can do it with other images with the same problem, just need to search the image in the game package files, like the fullbuild (figure out what can be the name of the file), when you find the file, export it.
next edit it,and just import them in the package mod file with all the other images (dont modify the name), and that is all, you have new modified logo

Heyhi.

So, I came across this thread a week ago, and became inspired to try my hand ant redesigning the sims 3 UI.



Its far from done, very rough around its edges, and I don't really plan to make anything past the main HUD right now. But most of the general shapes are made in Illustrator and can be adapted to the other HUD sections easily. Its just time consuming. And Tedious.

But the main reason I'm posting is because I came across a problem where the game doesn't load the CAS clothes module. I can start to create a sim fine, but when I click clothes is doesn't display. I can click another module and exit CAS just fine. If I go directly to the clothes from a load screen (for instance the 'plan outfit' option from a dresser) the game will softlock. Anyone have any ideas why? If anyone is still... here...?

Download link, NOW. I need this in my life. I love you. Have my babies. If you don't continue this project I will roll up into a ball and make a high-pitched whining noise until you do.

Lol, here you go. Just be aware of the problem I noted. I traced it back to Dinorex's UI mods. I used his UIs as a base, but they all have the same issue for me. I tried out the Pink UI and didn't have the issue, so I'll be looking into a solution.

EDIT
I'll finish the primary HUD at least. The plan is to release a set of .PSD files that would make recoloring easy as clicking a few button in photoshop. But again, takes a lot of time.

EDIT2
I apparently have a mod conflict that causes the issue. The hunt begins...

EDIT 643
The conflict was with xCAS... I don't know a lick of coding, or how to make my own packages. can't say I know how to fix it, so... Guess I'll have to do some learning or find a new base UI mod. For now I'm just keeping xCAS out of the game.

I've played around with it a little bit already, and this is actually the first UI mod I'm going to keep using after today. It might only be a Live Mode thingy, and even then an unfinished one, but I really like the look of it. Let me know if there's any way I can help! I haven't looked into the pie menus much, but I bet they're gonna be easy enough to change. After that it's Build/Buy which I suspect share a lot of image files.

EDIT: Still using it. I've tried to continue your work, but it indeed takes A LOT of time.
