Community News - Theme catch-up
Posted by PharaohHound, 4th Nov 2019 at 5:01 PM (17 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

Creator News - Upcoming Changes to Queue Bypass
Posted by Tashiketh, 11th Oct 2019 at 10:36 AM (7 comments)

Existing Queue Bypass System

As many of you creators know, MTS has had a system for a good few years now, called Queue Bypass. This worked on the idea that once a creator understood the various guidelines and regulations MTS has (in particular, images, and required information), then if they uploaded enough items, and gained enough "points", then they would be granted Bypass for the entire Queue. This can be seen on the Scorecard (found in My Links -> My Statistics), and details the last uploads you have made, along with the bypass status. The rules for the existing Queue Bypass system are as follows:

A creator is eligible for Queue Bypass when:
- They have at least 10 uploads on MTS
- At least 9 of the last 10 uploads are approved
- Out of the last 5 uploads, no more than 1 has gotten 2 Changes Requireds

In other words, the minimum number of uploads is 9 to get Bypass.

Downsides of the existing Queue Bypass

While this system has been working relatively well for a while, it was never the "final" version, and we've seen creators who, for example, uploaded Lots & Housing to the site, upon gaining bypass, would switch to, for example, Sims (or ... read more

Community News - MTS movie night 2019 winners
Posted by PharaohHound, 15th Sep 2019 at 4:50 PM (1 comments)

A big thanks to everyone who voted in our first ever MTS movie night official selection poll! Though all of the movies had strong support, our two winners pulled ahead of the pack by a notable margin. And to everyone who suggested movies, there were so many good choices, but no single one attracted many votes. You've definitely given us some ideas to put on the official poll for next time, though!

Not that newfangled live-action thing, the original animated version! Aladdin was the clear overall winner, so clearly you folks are itching for some good old fashioned Disney magic.

Jurassic Park
Roaring into second place is Jurassic Park! A timeless classic about a misunderstood heroine who sticks it to the patriarchy by eating her oppressors. Wait, what's that? The T. rex isn't the heroine? Well, fine, I guess those humans are cool too.

When and where do I watch?
Saturday, September 28 in the MTS Discord server, specifically in the mts-events channel.

Aladdin: Running time 90 minutes - UTC 5 PM, EDT 1 PM, CEST 7 PM

Jurassic Park: Running time 126 minutes - UTC 11 PM, EDT 7 PM, CEST 1 AM

How do I watch?
There are two options for those who wish to watch. The first is to source ... read more

Site News - Stream on us
Posted by PharaohHound, 1st Sep 2019 at 2:36 PM (0 comments)

So folks, we have some exciting news today. As many of you hopefully know, we have a server on Discord, the world's latest and greatest gaming chat service. If you didn't know that before now, come say hi!

Discord has recently launched the ability to stream games directly within Discord servers, no external programs or secondary websites or wrangling with OBS Studio required. And since gaming is the reason that all of us are here on MTS, we figured we'd be the perfect place for people to share their games, Sims and otherwise, with the world! That's right, you, too, can become a streamer. It's super easy, and a great way to show people the latest drama in Veronaville, check up on what Gobias Kofi is doing in Sunset Valley, or catch up on Bob Pancakes' adventures in Willow Creek. You can give people a glimpse into your creating process, or just let them enjoy the soap-opera-level dramatics of your gameplay.

Full details about how it works and our rules about streaming are available in the server-rules channel of our Discord server.

Sound exciting? Then come on over and give it a go! We're looking forward to seeing ... read more
