View Full Version : New LATTE and MOCCA Awards, for TS2 and TS3!

21st Jan 2011, 10:49 AM
Dear MTS Members and Creators,

Some of you might remember the MOCCA and LATTE awards to recognise outstanding achievements in the modding community. The last lot of MOCCAs and LATTEs were some time ago, and with all the development in TS3 modding we have selected a new crop of award winners for us all to recognise. Of course, TS2 is still a big part of the community, and so we will not be excluding creators/innovators who continue to support TS2 for us all to continue to enjoy.

What are MOCCA and LATTE?

The MTS (award for) Outstanding Continued Creative Achievement
aka MOCCA - This is to recognise creators who have consistently produced excellent work, as well as those who have broken the boundaries of creative content.


The Lifetime Achievement for Tools/Technical Excellence
aka LATTE - This is to recognise people who write tools for all to use, and those who generally help in various ways in the community. Without their tireless efforts, we wouldn't be here at all.

This time, we are honouring the following members:

The LATTE Awards:

CmarNYC (http://nene.modthesims.info/member.php?u=3216596) - For making some amazing tools for all creators to use (Morph Maker, Tattooinator to name just two) and for always being there to support and update the tools.
pljones (http://nene.modthesims.info/member.php?u=191965) - where would we be without Peter and s3oc, s3pe and the entire s3pi library; not forgetting, too, his work on various TS2 projects, not the least of which is SimPE!
twallan (http://nene.modthesims.info/member.php?u=3142388) - for awesome and incredibly useful mods - custom careers, the incredibly powerful MasterController and game-saving Overwatch to mention just a few - and for the fantastic support he provides for them.
jonha (http://nene.modthesims.info/member.php?u=2393587) - for projects including the AnyGameStarter 3 and the CTU - useful tools that make modding much more fun, as well as for being one of the first people to figure out custom sliders.
MogHughson (http://nene.modthesims.info/member.php?u=318435) - For taking the maxis BHAVS and standing them on their head in order to deliver awesomeness - and for documenting so many of them in the wiki.
CatofEvilGenius (http://nene.modthesims.info/member.php?u=685127) - For all those handy Milkshape Plugins that make bodymeshing so much easier, and for making clothes for our elders to make them more attractive to play

The MOCCA Awards:

-Shady- - Long renowned as a maker of fantastic genetics for TS2, and now branching out into TS3 genetics and beautiful lots galore; really, we just reckon -Shady- needs the caffeine to keep building so fast!
HugeLunatic - Has been creating high quality work based on great ideas for both TS2 and TS3 for a long time; coming up with innovative new ideas; and providing invaluable help to other modders.
fakepeeps7 - Without fakepeeps' gorgeous work, our sims 2 kids would be pretty much naked 90% of the time. For consistently creating beautiful, high quality stuff in one of the most sorely neglected areas of modding!
Pixelhate - One of the best creators of all things grungy and (seemingly) broken out there; we can't exactly call his work "beautiful" but... well, you get it. ;)

The award winners will get a custom trophy and a little cup o' caffeine icon by their names.


Time for a big cheer and thanks yous for these talented folks, some of the many people who make our games so much more fun to play. Of course, there are plenty of other people we want to shower with thanks and cookies - so we look forward to handing out more MOCCAs and LATTEs in the future!

Congrats to all the award winners! Thanks for making that great stuff I keep downloading!

* clap clap applause applause *

I feel very honored, thank you. The Sims game has been a wonderful hobby over the years, and that is due in large part to this site, MTS. The people, tutorials, and CC at MTS improved my game experience tremendously and inspired me to make CC. I'm so glad folks find my efforts to give a bit back useful.

* happy dance *

Congratulations to all of you and Especially Peter for fixing SIMPE when Quaxi was gone and for S3pe and S0c3 because without those tools, I would never be able to mod anything. I just mash meshes but I need programmers to figure out how to get into the packages. And Pixelhate... well, your work is BEAUTIFULLY DONE, even if grungy and unappetizing! lol LOONEY! Way to go!

I'm going to have to pay attention to what the other award winners have been doing! ;0) Congratulations!

Thank you mucho to everyone. Even though I'm retired from creating, I'm very honoured and touched. All the credits and the good vibes should go to the MTS Staff and Helpers for their incredible work and niceness all along these year: you all rock the socks ! :up: :llama:

Congratulations to all, especially those I've definitely known their neat fine works. I can't click on certain page features probably due to a too stringent js blocker.
