Sims 4 CAS Background
This article is all about the variety of CAS background Sims 4, but before we jump to that, it’s vital to know how to install these backgrounds, so that you can easily use them.
The download links would be given below, and once you download the files from there, open them in the downloads folder as well as the mods folder simultaneously.
To go to the mods folder: documents > electronic arts > sims 4 > mods, here you can put in any cc or mod that you download. So drag the CAS background that you’ve downloaded in the mods folder and restart your game.
Note: Download only one Create A Sim Background at a time, so that the system doesn’t get confused about which BG you want. Also, enable the mods in your game settings before you do this.
A Mod Required Before You Use CAS BG
So there’s a mod that you might have to use when you’re using a CAS background, and that is the “blob remover mod.” If you notice a blue bob under your sim’s feet while using the CAS background, then it might be a glitch and you’d need the blob remover mod to get rid of it.
List of CAS Background CC
Let’s take a look at all the backgrounds that the CC creators have created to avoid dull backdrops.
1. Starlight CAS Background
So number 1 CAS background mod on our list is Starlight. It’s a beam of light that originates from your sim’s calf and spreads into pink, magenta, orange and yellow colours against a sparkly black backdrop. Your sim’s would be the centre of attention with this BG.
2. Vejle Harbour Denmark
This background is inspired by a real life location, and it displays your sim standing at a boardwalk surrounded by water and boats. There are beautiful buildings and all of it is aesthetically pleasing. You sim’s appearance can also be enhanced with this backdrop.
3. Large Room CAS Background
If compared with others, this BG is quite basic with a combination of white, black and grey colours. However, it makes the other colours pop and makes you appreciate your sim’s clothes, and other items that you wouldn’t have in a normal EA background.
4. Graffiti Wall CAS Background
For those who want a bold and loud background, then this is the right choice. Your sim’s would look really cool with these graffiti walls as backgrounds, which shows their wild side. Is this the TS4 CAS background for you?
5. Grey Cat Walk
This background is perfect for those who are more into a minimalist approach, and want their sims to be in the limelight. The Grey Cat Walk background is a plain white BG with a grey cat walk in the middle for your sims. This way, the background wouldn’t take the attention away from your characters.
6. Alice in Wonderland
All literature fanatics, this background is for you. This Alice in Wonderland Cheshire Cat BG with a cat’s face staring at you, is quite cool and dominating at the same time. With this BG, you can even experiment with your sims and create them uniquely to uphold the spirit of the background.
7. My Bedrooms Part 2
With this CAS background mod, you have multiple options to choose your bedroom’s backdrop. The beds and the furniture are of different styles and not just limited to modern or country-style furniture. So have an excellent time taking your pick from this huge collection.
8. Anime CAS Background
This collection of Create A Sim backgrounds are one of my favorites because of its aesthetic qualities. There are two ‘Moon Sky’ backgrounds that are absolutely beautiful, there’s one with a black backdrop and pink, white, and yellow flowers. Then there are three more backdrops that are anime-themed and showcase breathtaking cityscapes.
9. Attic Room CAS Background
Are you a fan of Tangled, or Cinderella? Well, this BG offers a cozy disney movie inspired vibe with a peaked ceiling and a large oval window in the bedroom. Imagine your sims living in this cute background, which looks just out of a fantasy.
10. Wooden Floor
As the name suggests, this background has a nice grunge look with plain grey walls and wooden flooring. Also, the lighting of the room puts your sim as the centre of attention. Moreover, a BG with a floor looks more realistic instead of your sim just floating in the air.
11. Bathroom BG
Some people might not understand the significance of a bathroom background, but trust me, it’s a must! When getting dressed everyday, it’s important to have a BG with modern, floral glass walls that enhance your sim’s beauty as well. Now who wouldn;t want to get ready in such a gorgeous setting?
12. White CAS BG
Not every player is into a colourful background that has a lot of things going on, and let’s not forget that beauty is in simplicity. So this plain white background is for those who want their entire focus to be on their sim. This would help them look at the finer details of their sim’s appearance, and all your sim’s clothes would pop against this background.
13. Bedroom Part 1
A background that allows you to feel as if you’re in your own home is the best part. It’s a much better option rather than looking at a green and blue bubble while your sim gets ready. There’s a huge closet as well in the background, making it more realistic and fun.
14. Black Background
Like the white backdrop, this black background works in the same way. Infact with a black CAS background solid colour, your sim’s clothes would have a better chance of demanding attention. The brighter the clothes, the more pop they’d have against this backdrop.
15. Camo CAS Backdrop
Now this is a unique background, which can work as a camouflage for your sim. This green camouflage is excellent for players who are looking for a fun backdrop, and don’t prefer serious backgrounds.
Every player considers their sim as a model, and would have dreamt at least once to see them on a catwalk. Well, now is your time to do so with this background. Your sim would stand on a catwalk ramp while you work on them, with blue colours in the front and purple in the back, it creates the perfect contrast.
17. White Rooms
These white room backgrounds are an interesting option because it makes you feel like you’re in a room but with white walls. It’s a much better option than just a plain white backdrop.
18. Winter 2016 Backgrounds
Love winters? Now you can feel that winter vibe with this CAS background Sims 4. Your sims would stand in white snow backdrops, and it’d make you feel that winter’s here. You can even dress your sims accordingly with a hat and earmuffs to keep them warm.
19. Colourful Gradient Backgrounds
You might be wondering that Sims 4 already has a gradient BG, but it’s not as vibrant and colourful as this one. With a combination of pink and orange, yellows and blues, it makes for a perfect background to wipe away any dullness. It even has a crease at the bottom to make it look like a floor, isn’t that amazing?
20. Galaxy 2 Sims 4
This galaxy CAS mod is one of a kind, which makes it look like your sims are in the cosmos with a pink and purple starry background. The aesthetic beauty of this BG is beyond your imagination.

23. Stone Ocean
This background consists of solid colour backdrop options with light blue and mint combinations. These colours in the background would offer a cool and calm feeling, and its name is perfect to describe these BGs.
24. Daisy CAS Background Sims 4
If you’re looking for a cute, feminine touch, then this background is the one for you. With daisy flowers against different colour backgrounds, such as pink, blue, purple, etc., this backdrop is truly beautiful.
25. Disney Background

Sylvan Glade is another such world with beautiful pink trees and flowers that add a cute vibe to the game.
30. Old Houses
Sims 4 doesn’t just offer cute and beautiful backgrounds, it also has dilapidated old houses that have an eerie vibe to it. It’s the right vibe for vampire sims or witches that would be perfect against this setting.

Slightly similar to gradient colours background mentioned before, this Create A Sim background also offers a variety of colours that you can choose from instead of the default backdrop settings.
32. Hello Autumn
Autumn is the perfect weather, it’s neither too cold, nor too hot. So this backdrop offers you an excellent vibe for the cold weather, and the right outfits adds to its charm.
Vintage colours are always in fashion, and this backdrop understands that. You can choose from various colours, such as black & white, pink, mauve, brown, and other solid colours.

What more could we ask for? You might become inclined to turn your sim into a spellcaster or a magician, you never know.

Another favorite background of mine with adorable glittery colourful backgrounds representing Rudolph, Gingerbread, Hot Chocolate, and more. You’d definitely fall in love with these BGs.

47. Beach Please
This background is quite a convenient option because these are just plain colour backgrounds, and you can remove one mod, and add another one with a different colour without creating a huge change. The colours in this are quite subtle, and not in-your-face.
48. Pink Clouds
I believe pink makes everything pretty, and the same goes for this backdrop as well. Baby pink clouds add a dimension and beautiful detail to the game. This is so much better than a plain pink background, because the clouds add beauty to it, but don’t steal the limelight at the same time.

The dark blue background with majestic items is worth considering. In fact your sim would look even more beautiful in the magic portal BG as it’d illuminate your character.
52. Discover University Backgrounds
The world of Britechester is what this BG offers. It’s an excellent option to combine the worlds into backdrops by taking screenshots from it.
53. Striped Studio
As we said earlier, a simple background can also be as effective as a bold one, and this BG right here is all about simplicity. The stripes on pastel colours acts as a pretty backdrop, and the fold at the bottom gives it more dimension making it look like your sim is standing on a roll of fabric.
54. Nature Edition Solid Colour
You can find every shade of green in this backdrop, which means numerous options to choose from. All the colours aren’t too bright that they’d hurt your eyes, and would allow you to focus on your sim.
55. Dressing Room
When getting your sims ready, it’s essential to have a dressing room backdrop for more realism. With a partition on one side and chairs, tables, and a gorgeous closet on the other would surely inspire you.

Many people love pink, like me and this option offers several backdrops in different shades of pink. In addition, it has different patterns like pink bricks, sky, solid pink, etc. But each one of them is prettier than the last.
58. Discord Colours
This discord coloured theme features basic solid colours, such as black, blue, grey, and so on. These colours could be comforting for some people, so how could this not be an option.

62. Room Part 2
The first part of this background mod didn’t offer as much as this one does. You can get beautiful curtains with matching rugs, and this is a CAS background with mirror. It’d feel like you’re in a real life changing room, and who doesn’t want that?
Don’t confuse this BG with Alice in Wonderland. This backdrop features splotches of different colours in the background with leaf or line patterns on them. It’s one of the most gorgeous backgrounds you might have seen.
64. The Sims 2 Inspired BG
Players who’ve been playing this game since the Sims 2 version would definitely be hit with nostalgia when they use this Create A Sim background. It takes you right back to the 2000s as it’s inspired by the Sims 2 game.
65. Winter Background
Here we have another winter season inspired background with fine details, such as snow and the trees illuminated with lights that give you a festive vibe. It’d make you wish for winters a cup of hot cocoa and that fuzzy feeling.
