Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/index.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Careers&oldid=63970)

These are the rubrics that MTS staff use for evaluating TS3 Careers shared here.



The title above the post text controls the rubric's category, a number indicating its display order in the list, and its title, with no spaces between the word and the dividing | character: Category|Display Order|Title

Titles that begin with ** are rubric items that will not apply to every upload (a rabbithole does not need to be recolorable for example) and thus can be set to N/A by the moderator when evaluating an upload. Links below the title are provided to the creator along with the rubric reasons and are links to the appropriate section of the guidelines, relevant tutorials, etc.

In the post text, the numbers at the beginning of a line indicate the star rating for a particular rubric item, with a possible 1 to 5. Exactly how these numbers are used will vary based on the type of rubric item... Is it a "was it done right? yes or no?" type evaluation which would have only 1 or 5 as options? Or a matter of quality that will be more of a sliding scale including 1, 2, 3, 4, 5? Or something else?

A dividing | character can be given at the end of any one of the 1-5 star items to give a link that is relevant to that item.

1:The career levels have little to no descriptive text and do not progress logically from level to level.

2:The career levels have a few key points that are interesting, however, they could use more descriptive text and reorganizing to make them stand out and progress logically through each level.

3:The career level descriptive texts have a good starting point, but could also use some fleshing out to make them more interesting, and/or some editing could be done for the career to advance logically from level to level.

4:This career has a really solid base in both descriptive text and logical order. Overall, the career is well thought out and seems to proceed logically through each career level.

5:This career advances logically and the descriptive text per level is not only well thought out but really captures the interest of the downloader. Fantastic job!

1:This career has many grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors in the text, to the point at which it is difficult to read or unclear what the text is supposed to mean.

2:This career has quite a few grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors.

3:This career has some grammar and spelling issues.

4:This career has a few grammar and spelling issues, but is mostly correct. Great!

5:The spelling and grammar are perfect. Great job!

1:The pay for this career is extremely inflated/deflated when compared with EA careers, or the skill requirements are unreasonably high or low for the type of career.

3:The pay and skills are mostly good, but a few levels seem too high or too low to be realistic.

5:The pay and skill requirements make sense for the career, in line with EA pay and skill requirements. Brilliant!

1:The career does not have an icon included.|Custom icon tiporial (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=269957)

3:Your career's icon doesn't fit well with the user interface. Consider using a transparent background and/or an icon rather than a photo.|Custom icon tiporial (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=269957)

5:This career has a unique, custom icon, or an EA icon which makes sense for the career, attached!

1:You have included chance cards which don't make sense or are incomplete (in the sense of the chance cards for an individual level being incomplete - having chance cards for some levels and not for others is fine). Chance cards are not mandatory, but they do make careers more interesting and add more to gameplay: however, it's better to have no chance cards than non-working chance cards.

3:You haven't included chance cards. Chance cards aren't mandatory, but they make careers a lot more interesting and add more gameplay value, so consider including them in future!
3:You've included chance cards, but you haven't given any examples of them in your text, so we can't comment on how wonderful they are. ;)

4:You've included good chance cards for all or most levels. Lovely!

5:You've included great, well-written chance cards for all levels, making your career a labyrinth of peril for employed sims. Just what we like to see! ;)

1:You have not attached a screenshot showing your career's icon. You may attach screenshots of other things, such as chance cards, uniforms etc. if you wish; but you must also attach the icon.

5:You've attached an in-game pic showing your career's icon. Great!

1:Your main text doesn't include any of the required information about your career. We can't moderate the career if we don't know anything about it!|MTS2:Creator Guidelines/Careers

2:Most of the required information is present, but some things are still missing. Make sure you include all of the information asked for by the Creator Guidelines.|MTS2:Creator Guidelines/Careers

5:As it stands, all information regarding this career is available and presented clearly. Great job! :)

5:You've uploaded a working .package file, and no extra unneeded files. Great!
