Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Changelog
Update: 06/28/2018
  • Fixed an EA issue that items with more than 25 color swatches can cause items to misalign. This is done by limiting the number of swatches the thumbnail preview can show. You can still select all swatches an item has from the drop down selection grid.

Version 1.7: 06/20/2018
  • Updated for game version 1.44.77 (June 19 patch).

Update: 02/23/2018
  • Updated for game version 1.40.61 (Feb. 22 patch).

Version 1.6: 11/09/2017
  • Updated for game version 1.36.102 (Nov. 9 patch).
  • Added support for Create A Pet.

Description
This mod increases the number of columns in CAS. Two flavours of the mod are available: 3 columns, and 4 columns.

Warning
If your game's resolution is too low, the UI might be cut off of the screen. I don't recommend using the 3 column flavor if your resolution is lower than 1280x720, or the 4 column flavor if your resolution is lower than 1600x900.
Please note that if you have Cats & Dogs, a slighter higher resolution may be required for all columns to be shown in Create A Pet.

Compatibility
Check the download page for which game version the mod was built with.
Generally speaking, the mod is NOT compatible with older versions of the game than it's built with.

Conflicts
This mod overrides the following files and will conflict with other mods that also modify these files.

Default @Cherry0Blossom This should help:
The same thing happened to me, just go down to the most recent update, the one from June 2018, and download whichever one you want. When I went into the game everything showed up.

Hopefully, that helped

However, for some reason EA added some official items in Seasons with more than 25 swatches (one of the children's full-body outfits for instance). So I went ahead and fixed this. Just remove the old mod and redownload the updated version.


You have no idea how that little thing bugged me. I took out this mod several times thinking it was messing up the original columns in CAS and so I realized it was EA's doing. I believed you had not fixed it because it was not possible to do so.
Extremely appreciate that you took the time to fix this. Like many other Sim players, I like CC and more often than not it has more than 25 swatches.
Thanks!

The mod still works fine (as far as its functionality goes) for me after the update. If you encounter other issues with this mod installed you can let me know.

Maybe a 25 swatch item fix for the default 2 columns?
Hey, first I'd like to say thank you for this brilliant mod!

I wonder, though, since I can't use it because even the 3 column version makes my Create a Pet columns clip of the screen, if it would be possible/ of your interest to make the 25+ color swatch item fix for the original 2 columns in order that those who cannot or do not wish to have 3/4 columns can still enjoy this fix? It'd come extremely handy to me as a cc user and creator and it's something I've been wanting for a while now, so I figured I'd ask.

I hope you give this a thought. I'd be very happy... Again, thank you, and thanks for your time. :D

Do you think it would be possible to make something like this for the buy/build category? I hate that we can only see two rows. >:[

Thanks so much for fixing the misalignment issue! However, since the 7/31 patch, while the mod is still working in CAS, it causes some issues when viewing the gallery.

EDIT: Sorry, my mistake! The problem isn't with this mod. I checked through my mods folder, and it was actually another mod (AOM's CC Wrench Icon Hiders) that was conflicting with the patch. It's since been updated, so the issue has been resolved.

agree 100%! This is one of my favorite mods, and if we could have this same functionality for build/buy it would be absolutely amazing!

As of 08/16/2018 ver. 1.46.18.1020, the 1.44.77 june version of this mod is breaking my CAS, causing the gender section to be green and borked and the colour swatches to be covered in crosses 8(

I have the same problem with the pets and would love to see this! Also: will this or your other mods require updating with the november patch?

Is there any other way I can fix this?


Have you tried adjusting the uiscale under the Option.ini? I have mine set to uiscale = 60 for 3840x2160. I went lower, try to adjust it and see if that helps. If the problem is it's shifting many swatches just out of view to the left, this is a game design flaw, and not the mod. That's why they left it at two, but adjusting the uiscale helps that.

If you are missing entire sections like me though, that's because it does need an update for the newest patch. My eye color swatches are gone completely with this mod, take out, and the swatches are back. We'll just have to wait until it gets updated again. Gladly it doesn't require at script. EA announced that anything with a script is going to break with their next update.
