Site News - Scumbumbo has passed away
Posted by Hellfrozeover, Yesterday at 8:29 PM (10 comments)

We have some very sad new to share. It was brought to our attention that Scumbumbo died around six months ago.

Our thoughts and condolences are with his friends and family during this difficult time and we would like to leave this thread open for members of the community to remember all of Scumbumbo's hard work and his helpful nature.

Scumbumbo was known in the community for not only being a very creative and talented modder for TS4, but also for being incredibly friendly and considerate along with it. He paved the way for a lot of other creators, with much of his work being at the core of many of today's favourite mods.

We have without a doubt, lost a great person and we hope that his loved ones are able to find ... read more

Community News - Father Winter's House Challenge
Posted by PharaohHound, 3rd Dec 2019 at 8:45 PM (4 comments)

It's that time of year again when TS4's Father Winter emerges from his cave to spread the Winterfest spirit, handing out presents and drinking all the orange juice...
But in his old age, the cold weather gets into Father Winter's joints - why do you think he's always breaking into people's houses to hang out near the fireplace? Sure, a nice glass of mulled wine helps, but sleeping in a cold, damp cave all summer is really getting stale!

So here is where you come in!
Design a new home by January 1st, ready for Father Winter to settle down in comfort after the excitement of the Winterfest Holidays. Remember to style it to his taste - he's a festive man! And a new workshop for making toys would surely be appreciated. The challenge is open for all games, not just TS4, so no sim gets left out!

Bonus Category: Get the spare room ready! Mrs. Crumplebottom will be visiting soon. And don't think a blow-up mattress will suffice - she demands that her accommodations should meet her exact specifications. If you need some inspiration, check out some of the builds from our Mrs. Crumplebottom's Hideaway Challenge.

Site News - Meet the Creator -TheSweetToddler - November 2019
Posted by Hellfrozeover, 16th Nov 2019 at 4:57 PM (9 comments)

It's beginning to look a lot like....November! Too soon? This month's creator is our very own TheSweetToddler! TheSweetToddler is becoming a go to modder, known for her incredibly well thought out and useful family gameplay mods, primarily catered towards children and toddlers! As she continues to create new mods, it's becoming clear that she's definitely a creator to watch

1. When did you start playing The Sims Series and what attracted you to it?

I honestly can't remember, maybe I was around the age of 6 or 7 (I know, very young! I didn't understand most of it). I started playing the game thanks to my mother, she used to play TS2 all the time when I was a newborn baby.

2. What is your favourite installment of the Sims series?

The Sims 3 and forever The Sims 3. Although, I do really like The Sims 2 as well.

3. If you could only have one expansion/stuff pack from any of the series and it would work with your preferred instalment (1,2,3 etc), what would it be?

I love the EP Generations from TS3, it really brought a lot of fun things for all of the ages to do.

4. When did you start creating for the game and what made you decide to become a creator?

It was probably around 2013, when I was 8 or 9, where I started to make CC for my game (mainly poses) and later on in 2017 I started with other things, such as clothing recolors, animations and mods. Once again, I can't remember why I decided to start ... read more

Community News - Theme catch-up
Posted by PharaohHound, 4th Nov 2019 at 5:01 PM (31 comments)

Well, folks, our Mid-century theme was a rousing success! Some great modern architecture, atomic era flare, and even a moon landing! We'll be handing out stickers today, so stay tuned.

To wrap up the year, as requested, we are doing a Theme Catch-up. What does this mean? It means that you get to fill in the gaps in your sticker collection! We are reopening old theme achievements for a limited period. How does it work?
  1. Find a theme you want to do. The easiest way is to search for "theme" in the site news forum.
  2. Make an item for that theme
  3. Upload your item, making sure to include the tag "catchup2019" as well as the original tag for the theme you are fulfilling (for example "themeMidCentury").

Easy peasy! The Catch-up will run until the end of the year, giving you plenty of time to plan and create your items.

And here's the full list of awesome Mid-century creativity:

Site News - Meet the Creator - CmarNYC - October 2019
Posted by Hellfrozeover, 19th Oct 2019 at 2:33 PM (10 comments)

It's October already? How did that happen! Our creator for the most spooky months is tool and mod maker extraordinaire, CmarNYC! Cmar has been improving our games since way back in 2009 and many simmers, especially creators have benefited from her amazing work.

1. When did you start playing The Sims Series and what attracted you to it?

I started with Sims 1, back in 2000. I liked playing a game that's not all about shooting stuff up. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

2. What is your favourite installment of the Sims series?

Oh man. I've liked each one a lot, but at present I'm working in Sims 4 so that's my favorite now.

3. If you could only have one expansion/stuff pack from any of the series and it would work with your preferred instalment (1,2,3 etc), what would it be?

I really loved playing TS3 University Life. I also like the pets and weather expansions, but they're already out for TS4.

4. When did you start creating for the game and what made you decide to become a creator?

I did a custom sim for TS2 way back which seems to have vanished, probably deservedly so. Then I started serious modding work in 2009 when I wanted male pregnancy morphs and found I had to not only make them myself, but figure out how myself. This led to months of frustration and finally to my first experience of deciphering and creating game data, which led to the first tool I wrote for creators to use.

5. What is your favourite thing about being a creator?

The glamor! Seriously, I worked as a programmer/analyst ... read more

Community News - Spooktober Challenges
Posted by PharaohHound, 12th Oct 2019 at 9:08 PM (8 comments)

Carve your pumpkins and start cutting holes in your sheets 'cause the spookiest time of the year has arrived!

It's time to dress up your sims - they can be creepy, silly, mysterious, or horrifying! Whatever will get your sims in the mood for some spooky-day fun...
And what better way to get into the Halloween spirit than to decorate your sims' houses! Jack-o'-lanterns, cobwebs, spiders... why not go all out with some spooky green lights?

The Challenge
Love Create-A-Sim? Dress up your sims for Halloween with costumes and face-paint and post a picture or spooky photo-shoot of them.

If build/buy mode is more your thing, try decorating your sims' houses fit for the October season and post before and after pictures for everyone to see what you can do!

Or both, of course! Whatever you do, have fun! And don't forget to post your entries by October 31st. These challenges are just for fun, they won't be judged or ranked, so let your creativity run wild!

Please note that pictures and posts must follow the site rules. No excessive blood/gore - keep it PG 13. Also, costumes based on racial, cultural, or religious ... read more
