Site News - Official MTS 2015 Calendar Contest
Posted by heaven, 1st Nov 2014 at 4:09 AM (0 comments)

Official MTS 2014 Calendar Contest

November has rolled around again, bringing with it our annual calendar contests! Starting today, we are launching not one, not two, but three calendar contests for 2015. The contests will run for the entire month of November. There will be one specific for each game. This contest will give you a chance to share unique screenshots from your game depicting the calendar year.

The theme this year is centered around the classic Miss/Mr concept and should be a "modeling-esque" shot with your single sim as the main focus representing the "feel" of a particular month. A winner will be chosen for each month for, up to, a total of 36 winners (12 for each game)!

For Details and a chance to enter visit the game thread of your choice (or even all 3)!

TS2 Contest

TS3 Contest

TS4 Contest

Just a note: this year, with having 3 different contests to run and a possible of over 500 entries, I have enlisted the help of some other moderators to help run them. justJones will be in charge of the TS2 contest while missroxor will be hosting the TS4 contest. That said, we'll all be keeping an eye on them ... read more

Sims4Forum and Content Theft
Posted by leefish, 25th Sep 2014 at 4:18 AM (289 comments)

As some of you may be aware, Sims4Forum has been copying and hosting sims 4 content from all over the web, without explicit permission from the creators. Indeed, in some cases, they have hosted content that specifically had a TOU stating not to upload elsewhere. Additionally, the site is monetized allowing the forum owner to profit from these works that have been stolen from around the web and hosted without permission. Despite his claims, this IS copyright infringment.

Copyrights include intellectual property that is "fixed in a tangible medium of expression". The owner is the only one with the right to control reproduction, redistribution, and display of the work. Also, the copyright ownership is valid as soon as the work is fixed in the tangible medium. What does that mean for sims? If you have created any piece of custom content, it is fixed in a tangible medium of expression. It's no longer just an idea and therefore, you are the sole owner of that piece of work. You have copyright over the items you have produced and it cannot be distributed or displayed without your permission. (Source: Copyright Basics; AllLaw.com)

So what can you do if your content is being hosted somewhere you did not authorize?

First, ask the person who ... read more

Site News - Sims 4 Stuff, and New Creators (Sims 4 Deluge Edition)
Posted by Nysha, 14th Sep 2014 at 8:50 PM (17 comments)

Evening lovelies!

I hope those of you who've bought TS4 are enjoying playing it, and those of you who haven't are enjoying the immense satisfaction of that. We have a bunch of TS4-related updates for you today:

Sims 4 Studio
The Simlgical guys have released a new modding tool called Sims 4 Studio, which you can check out here. Make sure you've updated your copy of ColorMagic too, as the latest version includes some important bugfixes!

MTS Stuff
We've now put our first lot of TS4 upload moderation rubrics, and Creator Guidelines, live. We're learning as we go just like you guys, so please forgive any mistakes, and feel free to question or bend anything that doesn't seem to make sense. If you're uploading a groundbreaker, don't worry about the lack of rules - just make sure you're giving all the textual and pictoral info you reasonably can, and we'll be very happy to host your lovely stuff .

With the recent release of TS4, many simmers have changed their focus and game interests. They now have three games to choose from to play, create and share. MTS does not accept requests, however we do have an area for creators to post that they accept ... read more

Community News - Some sad news
Posted by Delphy, 4th Sep 2014 at 3:28 PM (434 comments)

Today I have very sad news to share with you all - one of our long term members, Mootilda, had been ill with cancer for some time. On Monday 1st September she was admitted to hospital and died peacefully on Tuesday morning. This announcement post gives us the opportunity to share our condolences with her family and to remember her for all the great mods she made for us, and more importantly, to remember her for her great character and her kindness in helping others.

Mootilda was a highly respected member of the community and could frequently be found helping out in modding discussions and help forums. She was an accomplished programmer who loved to share her knowledge with others as well as being a site helper here on MTS for a number of years, and contributed extensively to the site and the community.

Community News - Sims 2 Ultimate Collection - Now Free!
Posted by Nysha, 23rd Jul 2014 at 9:03 PM (200 comments)

Most of you have probably heard by now that EA have been offering a new Sims 2 Ultimate Collection for free via Origin, to anyone who has any Sims 2 game. The Ultimate Collection is a compilation of Collection Packs, meaning that it contains all of the Sims 2 EPs and SPs, and it was also promised to include exclusive content, although no-one seems to have found any exclusive content yet.

Well, from today until Thursday 31st July, EA are offering the Ultimate Collection for free, to absolutely anyone!

For instructions on how to get your free copy of Ultimate Collection, click here. You will have to install Origin to download and install Ultimate Collection, unfortunately.

If you want to keep playing using your disks, register for UC but don't download it.
Having both regular game and UC installed at the same time will break at least one of them, and uninstalling either will partially uninstall both. Once you've registered the code, that's all you need to do - UC will stay on your Origin account until you want to actually install it.

Got questions about Ultimate Collection? Here are a few of the FAQs...[list][*] Ultimate Collection is compatible with your existing neighbourhoods, as long as you never installed Store edition. If you did, I'm afraid UC won't open your neighbourhoods.[*] UC is a collection of ... read more
