View Full Version : Performing Arts Bimonthly Theme

1st Jun 2017, 1:28 AM

Hello Fellow Simmers!

MTS is proud to announce that we are bringing back themes! As of June 1, 2017 we are starting a series of new themes, each lasting for 2 months.
There will be a special extended one that lasts over the holidays however, only to begin anew in January of next year.

After much heated debate (actually we took a poll) we decided on Performing Arts for the first one. Of course, the gigantic banner up above is probably a good clue which one won ;)

Build a theater, create an instrument, make a costume, be creative in a multitude of ways! We look forward to seeing what the community comes up with :)
Be sure to put #themeperformingarts in your hash tags though, and mention that any uploads are part of the new theme so we don't miss any!

As usual, contributors will receive a shiny new Achievement Sticker for their collections :)

*Wonders about maybe finishing up the theatre from my university campus and posting that to get in on this contest / get feedback from the larger community on the styles I'm using for that project...

This is wonderful news! I was just getting into creating and participating in these when they were pulled and was so bummed. Humongous thanks, mods and site staff, for bringing back themes! As a creator I enjoy how they inspire projects I might not otherwise have planned, and as a downloader I love the great goodies they bring! Cheers, and thanks again! (^_^)

@Delphy would you mind putting the banner in the first post of this thread across the site please? :)

Does a TV studio qualify as a venue for the performing of an art?

13th Jun 2017, 5:56 PM
Yes it does @GrijzePilion

13th Jun 2017, 6:05 PM
Great, I'll get right on it.

13th Jun 2017, 6:55 PM
As an aspiring singer/Broadway actress myself, this excites the hell out of me! Can't wait to get started!

14th Jun 2017, 3:23 PM
Oooh. Someone please do a woodwind instrument! You'd win for sure, at least for me. Lol.

15th Jun 2017, 7:05 PM
Yes, this is so cool! And a great opportunity for me to finally finish the Kabuki theater I started building AGES ago! :D

Wonderful idea ! I wouldn't have enought time to participate if it was one month long only. And the theme is great too. Thanks !

I know I won't be able to contribute anything (because I'm not good at making things) but its good to see themes again.

Especially if there's a theme you like, and a content creator you like decides to make new CC based around it. Like that one time the monthly theme was Chuck Norris. Obviously I'll have to pitch in with ideas:

- the future (in a Into The Future sort of way)
- the past (in a 70s, 80s & 90s Stuff sort of way)
- Chuck Norris's colleagues (in an 80s action movie sort of way, and I'd pitch in the building from Die Hard (https://68.media.tumblr.com/e2e4de0a4564967a303b6700dd12c429/tumblr_orhk37dncf1vc8aj1o1_1280.png))

These themes not only inspire creativity, but teamwork too! @gdayars and I (justJones) have started a mod team because of it :P

25th Jun 2017, 10:20 PM
Oh a whole 2 months? Awesome, I'll actually have time to make something after getting a new laptop, yes! :D

Of course I'll have to figure out what to make, plus see how busy my social life is. :P

27th Jun 2017, 8:05 PM
Ohh how come I didn't notice this earlier? I have an awesome idea! :bunny:

6th Jul 2017, 3:17 PM
I'm building a venue that includes space for performing, but where performing is not the focus of it all - a large park with a bandstand to be exact. Would that fall under the theme or not?

6th Jul 2017, 7:53 PM
Am not sure. It would depend on what percentage of the lot was theme based probably

13th Jul 2017, 10:30 AM
Great :) I have some CC that I might be able to adapt to this!

20th Jul 2017, 8:47 PM
Last call and reminder! We have just a few days left til the end of the theme :) We are recording all uploads for the achievement sticker and also pm'ing creators who would have fit in the theme but didn't put it in the hashtag so if you get a pm or want to go back and add it, having forgotten, just please let us know so we can add you to our list :)

21st Jul 2017, 12:29 AM
What is the last day we can upload/last day of the theme? I'm working on a few things, but they aren't done just yet. @gdayars

21st Jul 2017, 4:18 PM
My build is coming!!! Hold the elevator please!!!

The Vista side of my PC died (completely dead - ain't no resuscitating that baby again) :wtf: *sigh* So, I had to rebuild from scratch on my DD's machine using S2UC - which I've never used before... Not completely sure about how I feel about it yet - I miss SimPE too much! BUT, since no CC was installed - it is a CC-free lot. 'Yay!' for that?

She just stepped away from her machine now - so I'm gonna sneek back on there to get pictures taken... She probably won't give me much time to use photoshop on them (another program I can't replace on Linux) - so my upload presentation will probably not be up to my usual standards (we'll see) Hopefully, I'll get my upload up within the next day or so...
I gotta get my sticker! O.O

22nd Jul 2017, 4:51 PM
Oh great idea! Try to upload some CC :bunny:

27th Jul 2017, 4:49 AM
@gdayars Is the deadline for the Performing Arts theme July 31? Thanks!

27th Jul 2017, 6:38 AM
yes it is! :) July 31 this one ends, and August 1 we will be announcing the new one :) and the first week in August will be seeing the stickers going out for everyone who participated :)

Had no idea this type of thing was going on on MTS! Where have I been??? Loving the theme so far. Good luck everyone!
