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; must include(all or some): extensions to the building, added floors(levels), change of roof styles, adding in driveways, refreshing new indoor/outdoor furniture,edits of the floor plan.The lots must be changed in a way,but still to have something left of the original lot.
About neighborhoods - significant changes to terrain, completely new/edited (as pointed above) lots. This means that you can build a completely new house to match an existing neighborhood. Building a lot, with VeronaVille theme for instance, will be accepted as well.
Maxis recolors: anything here is allowed - time to put that brush into action and add some new colors and textures!
Edits of Maxis meshes: Conversions from all games to all games(ts2,ts3 and ts4)is allowed, just remember to do it right - see tutorials for help(don't forget the fat/pregnancy morphs). Age and gender conversions, combining Maxis meshes and creating a new ones is also fine. Editing an Expansion/Stuff pack mesh and making it base game must include significant changes to the mesh as per Creator Guidelines .
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, donít 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 they are approved:
May Theme Get Fit!

So a lot has to have both an extension to the building and added floors or just one or the other? Part of any lot makeover I have done is to try very hard not to change the footprint of the lot to keep an essence of what it was. I did that with the one I uploaded, Brandi's trailer and no one said it was not enough. I take it that is just for this theme and not what I now need to do for lots outside of this theme? Makes me wonder if I should try a recolour, tried it once, didn't look good.

lidiqnata
1st Jun 2015, 9:56 AM
Keeping the footprint is fine,but we need additional changes to the lot itself. For instance - adding new levels,garages,additional rooms,expanding lot space with gardens etc.
This however does not mean you cannot build a completely new house to match an existing neighborhood. Building a lot with VeronaVille theme for instance :)

As for lots outside the theme - everything is permitted as usual - the rules apply for the uploads,parts of the monthly theme only.
About your recolors - see the tutorials center,we have lots of easy steps and don't forget the feedback center for tips ;)

We know there are going to be clarifications,so don't hesitate to ask anything!

These themes are great at making me dust off old projects that didn't get finished. Thanks for that :) This'll be a fun one, I think. Looking forward to see all the maxis recolor people make.

Edits of existing Maxis houses: must include extensions to the building, added floors, change of roof styles, adding in driveways, refreshing new indoor/outdoor furniture.
How many of these things have to be included? All of them? Just some of them? Would an edit to a Maxis residential lot that turns it into an apartment, changes the roof structure and the wall coverings, alters the floorplan, adds suitable furnishing and changes the landscaping outside (and possibly uses the Lot Expander to either expand or decrease the garden area) be acceptable, or would the actual building need to be extended as well?

I think you've mentioned every detail we stated in your description :D
As i pointed out - edits must include significant changes to the lot - the idea of turning a house into an apartment building itself is significant enough. The things we mentioned could be used as parts or all,just what suits your idea the most.

Apart from adding extensions or extra floors (I assume that floors means storeys rather than flooring?)! I was trying to figure out if that was required or not :-)

Well... crud... not sure what I can contribute to this theme being primarily a pose-maker and all. What about townie/sim-bin make-overs? Would that count? (And to what extent?)

Since this is the begining of the month - why not give some recoloring a try? If you're a pose maker,that means you have basic object knowledge,so perhaps some time in the tutorials center would help you advance ;) ?

As for the house floors - yes,they mean levels,stories. Usually, making a starter house into a family home may require additional rooms/stories.

Not sure what would constitute a "recolor" for TS3?

And was that a "no" to townie make-overs?

SleepyTabby
1st Jun 2015, 4:16 PM
No, no, no! This theme...it's too hard to resist! Recolors or default replacements of Maxis content? Isn't that all I know how to do? ;)

Ack. Now part of me is interested in finally redoing my skin defaults again, while a little voice in me is screaming, "NOOOO!"

But I do have a set of default face templates I can upload. Or I can make another set of eyes...

(The skins...they are calling me...)

Re-worked default sims in the games could be great additions to the game. Editing sims is really catchy, but done right is fine and can be accepted.
Recolor in the games besides ts3 mean new textures as stated above in the text. Since this applies for all games,some of the terms are used not to specify a game,but instead to group them all together :)

I'm expecting great things from you for this theme,like you said you missed the last,so put those painting skills into action!

Eek, no pressure, lol. Just kidding. I do have a fancy new monitor and a fancy new tablet now (my Imperfection skins were originally drawn with a mouse on my lousy laptop). So I'll see how overhauling Imperfection goes, since that was made directly from the Maxis skins. It ought to be easier this time, since I have the old CFF thread saved. :3

QQ here (Quick Question) :D
About lot make-overs. The one I did for last month - BDC's Cratus Gym - is that changed enough for this theme? (I know I can't use the same build/upload - I mean as a guideline for myself.)
The roof is different, inside decor is changed, bathrooms reconfigured, and the pool area is changed. But the outside "look" of the thing is very much the same. Is that OK?

See that is what I do when I do a makeover and was told no. I was told I must extend the building or add floors/stories. But I don't do that, because that is changing the shape of the building which is something I don't like to do, otherwise it bares no resemblance to the original lot.

Exactly Cat. That was what I was trying to ask and my take on the answer is no, we must extend or add on another floor. I don't know what to do. :/ I don't want to upload a makeover that I am personally unhappy with just to get a sticker.

I will take another look at recolouring but if that doesn't work I think I will step out.

Karen Lorraine
1st Jun 2015, 11:23 PM
The Cratus Gym makeover would've been accepted for this round, Cat. We just want it to look substantially different to the original Maxis house/lot :)

CatherineTCJD

OK - Thanks, Karen :up:
That means you are good to go Jo! You can do a lot makeover exactly the way you like to do them.
No need to venture into unknown territory *whew*
Only problem now (for me) is which one do I remake - I think I've done all the ones I was interested in... hmmm... I'll have to take another look :giggler:

joandsarah77
2nd Jun 2015, 1:28 AM
If you are sure Karen. lidiqnata seemed to be saying we must extend the house or add another level to it.

I was thinking of making over a couple of the smaller bin houses, shrinking the lots to make some nicer starters, although it's probably already been done.

Jo - I'm editing the rules above adding more clarifications and as i stated above - (all or some) in Editing existing Maxis lots. See the rules in the post again for more info,because we're really trying to add answers to all of your questions and concerns ;)

The general idea for this theme is to either improve your work or push you little further into the depths of the games,making new things. Since the only thing here is - if you upload to the theme - you get a sticker,we decided to make things more interesting.

joandsarah77
2nd Jun 2015, 12:34 PM
Thank you! It's not that I can't add a level or extend, it's just something I don't like to do to Maxis made houses, or pre-made sims, I like something of what/who they were to still be there, but hopefully given a glamour makeover. :)

I might still try my hand at recolouring.

@lidiqnata

What about converting recreating Life Stories hood for the Sims 2 base game with just the playable sims cloned with SimPE using only base game/items making it look as close as possible.


This is a ground up recreation of Riley's Story from Life Stories game using only the base game to make.

Question: For the houses, do we have to include floorplan screenshots of the original house enough to make comparisons? And what are the limitations of the makeover? I mean, I already understand the do's but what about the don'ts?

I think this is a really good example of a nicely done re-do and presentation - here (http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=556296) by CatherineTCJD.

aisquared,
What do you mean by limitations? If you choose to re-do the whole lot to fit your needs/taste it's still fine, as long as something is left of the original. Otherwise it'll be labeled as completely new lot.If something else is bothering you,please do explain more - so we can help you and fill in the missing info :)

That's why I asked, because I think I've overdone my house makeover. I was trying to remake one of the premade houses on the lot bin (http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Lots_and_Houses_bin/The_Sims_3) in TS3, (specifically the Keystone house) and my attempt was to make it modern. That would mean changing the exteriors and replacing every window with glass windows (especially the ones from ITF). I'm afraid that would make it a whole new lot instead of just a makeover...

If the whole floor plan is untouched and you changed only the windows - that still makes it a make over. Editing the exterior/interior furnishings is fine.
Why don't you use the "Feedback center" and show us pictures of the house and how you re-made it so we can give you more accurate opinion?

@lidiqnata I have added 3 before pic's but only 2 are showing up. Ok they all show up now.

So basically, you can landscape, redo the furnishings, change the floors, wall coverings, windows, doors etc. or even add on a room or something, but the building still has to be recognizable as the original?

Something like this?

Yes aeval99, otherwise it won't be labeled as an edit. The point of making an edit is to improve,not remake completely. In an actual world - you cannot change at 100% your home - you either invest in making additional rooms,change of garden,roofs etc - you work with what you get and try to improve it little by little :)
What you're showing is fine - you can see the old house in the front and it's looking like a nice edit.

I've been working non-stop on my bathroom makeover but I'm not going to make the deadline :cry: but I will finish -- I just need a few more weeks. I'm sorry I won't have anything to share myself this month but I love the theme and have been enjoying everyone else's makeovers! :)

Don't worry "Honeywell" :) You'll have plenty of time for the next theme :)

Here it is the last day and I have a problem with my project. For some unknown reason none of the recolors for the socialite eloquent divinity dining chair, but one, show up in the catalog when I fire up my game. I have redone them three times and still the same result. I'm beginning to feel like maybe I should just go take in-game shots of what I've finished (tables and cushions) and keep plugging along on the chairs and add them later.
What do you think?
I wanted to have them before the theme ending.

Like Honeywell, I just won't be able to finish any of my projects in time. Real life kind of went insane this month, but even though they won't be done in time for the monthly theme, I'll post them when they're ready. And I'll still look forward to next month's theme.

Regardless, I just want to say, "Great job!" to all those who have uploaded their fantastic makeovers this month. :)

"Deatherella" we do not give prizes only a sticker for participation :) So don't rush everything unless you really want that sticker ;) In my opinion(if ts2 you're talking about) you'd re-check whether you're have ticked all the subsets to recolor. Again I cannot say anything specific,since i don't really know what game we're talking about and no pictures/files to test.
Tabby same goes to you,I'm pretty sure that you'll love the next theme.

It's the socialite chair from AL in 2. All the cushion recolors I made show up just fine, it's the frames to match the tables that don't. I've been busy with the kids all day so I haven't been able to try out my latest remake of them all. I'm starting to think they are one of those fluke-y objects where you have to have each recolor file in a separate folder for them to show up in-game. I know I have a few things from the past that only work that way.
Or are you thinking that when the subsets pop up, instead of just clicking the one for the frame, I should make recolors with the cushion and frame both? Right now, all my frames and cushions are separate recolors. Since all the cushions show up fine, the frames not doing so is confusing.

And I don't know why I called the sticker a prize. Must've needed more coffee when I wrote that.
Thanks for you response. If I can't get them to show up on my own, I'll be going for help in the create forums.

I just had my first upload approved. It was posted on July 8 and tagged #thememaxis. Since I uploaded it for approval on June 25, I think it qualifies for the June theme. If you could check it I would appreciate it.
Thanks! :)
