First I would like to congratulate the G4TW team, which made this EP available in such a short time. Carlos is tha man!!!  The downloading speed were fast so in less than an hour I was able to download and re-seed. As far as the Installation, as Always, I backed up my game folder... That is the one that is located in the documents section of your HD; proceeded to install the EP, always following the instructions that are within. The game installed without any problems at all. Proceeded to test the installation, no mods, of-course!, and the game works as a charm. Now, I proceeded to check which mods are broken (there is a list at SIMSVIP) for the ease of not having to check every single mod. Proceeded to update some of my broken or obsolete mods and uninstalled all mods which are not updated yet; which in all truth there aren't that many, at least for me. The EP itself came with some glitches, which will prompt a new patch, most likely. However, if you have disappearing feet in CAS or Disappearing doors, these I hate to tell you are CC related, so exclude any HD feet you may have installed; the doors glitch is a little harder to spot, as it could be any number of mods, specially those dealing with sliding doors, so I would start by testing those. If by chance you load a save file and find that there are no doors in your game, do not panic, just exit without saving and find which of your mods is causing this. If your Sims do not tan and you are using a CC skin or skintone, this is the culprit, since tanning only works with Maxis match and some, not all Custom skins and skintones or blends. I is confused Some indoor decor items like fake arches and columns are giving a last exception due to routing, not to worry since the game works fine and the sims route without problems. One of the bugs that I talked about is that it seems that someone deleted a needed coding for the vampires, so they get last exceptions and routing issues; which is the bad news, the good news is that a modder already pick the error up and TMEX has issued a mod to fix the issue temporarily, until EA offers a patch or a fix. As I keep on testing I will let you know of any other CC related issues with the game. Enjoy the mermaids! Good job!

Update: As promised I'm back with an update of CAS. If you take an existing Sims and try to make him into a mermade and you get a blank face or distorted one: There are 2 culprits: realistic tongue that goes with WW and some nose presets, as well as no EA eyelashes mod. Some say there is a workaround to the no EA eyelashes, by placing the no EA eyelashes in its own floder and renaming it to AAA, so that it loads first. I have not tested this, but if you do, before I get to it, let us know. The nose presets as well as the tongue, have no solutions and we will have to wait for an updated version of those. This glitch occurs also when you convert an existing sims into a mermade with the kelp.

Yes, I certainly do. Update: As far as the HD feet I am working with Necrodogs V5 and I Have not Had any disappearing feet. As with all my defults, I placed it in a default folder as well as the no ea eyelashes which I renamed as follow: !!Overrrides!! I have no idea if it's going to work with switching to mermaid form, I'm about to test that.
