Creator News - Monthly Theme - July
Posted by lidiqnata, 1st Jul 2015 at 6:48 AM (12 comments)

Thank you for participating in our June monthly theme. We received lots of goodies,but it's 1rst of July, so it's time for a new theme - "Around the World".

July Theme - Around the World
Think cultures, travels, crossing the globe in a second. I can't possibly think of anything that wouldn't fit the theme - lots, sims, traditional building sets. Why not make a custom skintone,or a typical region animal?

The Rules
  • The usual Creator Guidelines apply to all uploads.
  • Anything goes, as long as it's somewhat related to the theme - see inspirations above
  • Only uploads that are uploaded before the end of July will receive an achievement sticker (this includes 31rst) - anything uploaded after that date will not compete. We will look at the date it has been uploaded to the queue, don't worry about waiting times for moderating.
  • Tag your upload with this tag:themeworld. This way it is much easier to keep track of uploads and we know that you are participating in the monthly theme.

If you have a question about something that is not included in the description above - feel free to ask! If you have other ideas on content that would be in the spirit of this theme, don’t hesitate let us know

We're happy to see the old and the new creators taking part in our theme - 79 uploads so far. Can't wait to see the rest when they are approved from the queue. We had to divide the entries by game,since so many of you took part this month!

Featured Item - Packing Crates for TS4
Posted by scumbumbo, featured 26th Jun 2015 at 1:57 AM ()

What if there was a box that was big enough to hold a piano, but small enough to fit in a sim's pocket? This is a very useful addition to the game: you can basically make any object portable when you put it in this crate! Go check it out if you haven't already =)

Site News - Notice of upcoming server move
Posted by Delphy, 19th Jun 2015 at 7:48 AM (37 comments)

The current server that MTS is hosted on is getting quite old now (It was ordered and installed in 2012). In order to keep up with changing hardware, and get a better performing site, I am moving to a newer, faster, better server.

I have already taken a backup and copied it to the new server, plus done most of the configuration. All that remains is to sync the remaining files, the database, and make sure everything works.

I will be migrating MTS over to a new server start Friday 26th June. To that end, the site will be completely offline starting that date and lasting for at least 1 day (possibly more, but I doubt it).

I will, of course, keep everybody updated via my twitter ... read more

Creator News - Monthly Theme - June
Posted by lidiqnata, 1st Jun 2015 at 6:14 AM (46 comments)

Thank you for participating in our May monthly theme. It's 1rst of June, so it's time for a new theme - "Maxis Makeover".

June Theme - Maxis Makeover
  • There are some additional rules we need you to follow in order to participate in this month's theme.The reason - there's a thin line between real edits, what's allowed and not, so in order for them to qualify, please follow these simple rules.
  • Edits of existing Maxis houses/neighborhoods;
  • Maxis recolors: anything here is allowed - time to put that brush into action and add some new colors and textures!
  • Edits of Maxis meshes:
  • Making default overrides are welcomed - just make sure you find suitable recolors/meshes for that!
  • CAS and face templates are encouraged as well - make sure you credit all and test well!
  • Re-worked default sims in all games apply here. Townie sims are included here too; Adding new breeds or editing the old ones to make them more realistic apply for games with Pets as well.
  • Fixing, finding lost maxis meshes and making new additions in sets: As we know, the games have lots of single items,that just need to be parts of sets or in worst case - found. So we hope you find the time and dig deep into the games and have fun, while participating in our new theme!
  • Please,when you upload an edit,show what it used to be before(comparison shot),so we can clearly see what has been made-over.

The Rules
  • The usual Creator Guidelines apply to all uploads.
  • Anything goes, as long as it's somewhat related to the theme - see inspirations above
  • Only uploads that are uploaded before the end of June will receive an achievement sticker (this includes 30th) - anything uploaded after that date will not compete. We will look at the date it has been uploaded to the queue, don't worry about waiting times for moderating.
  • Tag your upload with this tag:thememaxis. This way it is much easier to keep track of uploads and we know that you are participating in the monthly theme.

If you have a question about something that is not included in the description above - feel free to ask! If you have other ideas on content that would be in the spirit of this theme, don’t hesitate let us know

Here are the creators and their uploads, who participated in last month's theme. Those who are still in the queue,will be added once ... read more

Posted by artrui, featured 25th May 2015 at 6:46 PM ()

Want a piece of The Hobbit for TS4? Then look no further as Rivendell will be just right for you! It is very well executed with so many pathways and rabbit warren hidey holes. What a great entry for the April theme, Eco/Environmental friendly.

Creator News - Clarification re. Dead Sites
Posted by Nysha, 10th May 2015 at 10:00 AM (14 comments)

Hi all,

We've just updated the creator guidelines to clarify that if you're using content from a dead site, and the creator's policy isn't posted anywhere else, you can assume (on MTS) that they're happy for their stuff to be edited and included with uploads. If a site we all thought was dead gets resurrected and the creator asks us to remove uploads which violate their resurrected policy, you may be asked to remove stuff from your files and link to the site instead, but we'll try to avoid that.

This isn't really a change, since we've been doing it like this for a while, but it wasn't explicitly stated in the guidelines before. Hopefully the policy is clearer now, and please ask if you've still got any questions.

Enjoy your weekend,

Creator News - Monthly Theme - May
Posted by lidiqnata, 1st May 2015 at 9:40 AM (20 comments)

Thank you for participating in our "Green Living" monthly theme. It's 1rst of May, so a new theme is up - "Get Fit".

May Theme - Get Fit
Think exercises! Anything related goes in this theme - from fitness lots to athletic clothing. Keep in mind that objects that keep you fit are always welcomed. I did not see anyone participating with a sim,but why not? A sweetheart bodybuilder will do the work just fine

The Rules
  • The usual Creator Guidelines apply to all uploads.
  • Anything goes, as long as it's somewhat related to the theme - see inspirations above
  • Only uploads that are uploaded before the end of May will receive an achievement sticker. This includes 31rst as your last chance - anything uploaded after 31rst will not compete. We will look at the date it has been uploaded to the queue, don't worry about waiting times for moderating.
  • Tag your upload with this tag:themefit. This way it is much easier to keep track of uploads and we know that you are participating in the monthly theme.

Before we give you this month's creators who took part in our theme, we want to ask those of you who have been participating to write a comment or two about something. We noticed that this theme did not get many participants in the sims 4 and not so many in the sims 3. What did you find hard?

We received 31 goodies for April.
Here are the creators and their uploads, who participated in last month's theme:

Featured Item - The Siren's shelter
Posted by Crowkeeper, featured 30th Apr 2015 at 5:55 AM ()

This siren doesn't need a good singing voice to drive sailors insane. The sheer amount of cute and creative of her house gets the job done all on its own.

Featured Item - Heliantheas super bland comic eyes (default replacements + non defaults)
Posted by Helianthea, featured 15th Oct 2014 at 6:32 AM ()

Like Sims 4's cartoony vibe, but hate EAs default eyes? Check out these defaults by Helianthea! They are more than just pretty – the creator went out of her way to make sure they're 100% perfect, and wrote a bunch of tutorials as well to share what she learned in the process!
