Site News - MTS Movie Night
Posted by PharaohHound, 15th Jul 2017 at 7:21 PM (38 comments)


Aloha, MTSers! Grab your surfboards, unfurl your sails, make a bucket of popcorn, and join us for our first ever MTS Movie Night!

This weekend we're hosting a live movie watching party in our Discord text chat server. We're hoping this will be a great chance for everyone to meet new people, get to know our chat system (if it's your first time), and also watch some really fun movies. After much discussion among the staff, we've decided on a Disney Pacific Islands double feature.

The movies

Lilo & Stitch
Before there was Moana, Disney made another Pacific Islands movie! Lilo & Stitch is a fun, quirky romp through Hawai'i which includes such elements as a little girl who's convinced that a sandwich-loving fish named Pudge controls the weather, a blue alien who looks like a demon koala and is determined to destroy everything in his path, a different alien who's convinced that the entire earth is a nature preserve because mosquitoes are an endangered species, and a giant alien space shark who's sent in to clean up the mess caused by the previous two aliens. Beneath all the sillies, it's a story with a lot of heart, about the struggles of ... read more

Site News - MTS Wants YOU! We're looking for moderators
Posted by PharaohHound, 11th Jul 2017 at 1:42 AM (41 comments)


Gather 'round, eager MTSers! We are once again looking to recruit some volunteer upload moderators from your fine ranks. This time we are especially interested in TS4ers, but we will be accepting applications from players of all Sims games.

What it will entail:

Upload moderators see the queue in a view much like the downloads browser, and individual uploads look much like users are used to seeing, just with some additional options on both. Uploads moderators log into our live chat, look at uploads waiting in the queue, and then work with other moderators who are online to evaluate each one based on various criteria, using a handy rubric like a checklist. In most cases we will also write out some individual notes with clarifications and specific feedback for the uploader. When all items are complete, the evaluation is sent to the creator and the upload is approved, rejected, or kept in the queue as it requires changes.

Each upload usually takes anywhere from 2-10 minutes to evaluate, depending on complexity and upload type (lots, for example, are usually harder and more time consuming to evaluate than walls), so the total time commitment varies somewhat depending on how many items are ... read more

Site News - Guidelines/Rubrics Changes
Posted by heaven, 16th Jun 2017 at 6:09 PM (8 comments)

As always, ModTheSims strives to make uploading as painless as possible and we're constantly looking for ways to improve our guidelines, queue time, and rubrics to make life easier on uploaders and moderators alike while still maintaining the high level of quality content accepted on this site. To that end, we've made a few changes to the following areas:

TS2:
'Other Content' for Lots: In the future, if you create content to be included with your lot, whether it is a new mesh, new wallpaper, or recolors, we will require that you adequately provide information and screenshots of the additional content. We've had this rule in place for TS3/TS4 and for TS2 sims, but somehow it has never made it to the TS2 Lots guidelines.

Store Content: The restriction on including store content in your TS2 lots/sim uploads has been removed. Please note that this means that you may ONLY include TS2 Store Content IF your lot/sim utilizes that particular item. You may not just upload a lot that has all store content scattered about, or upload the store content on its own.

TS3:
Lot Package Files: In addition to sims3packs for lots, we will now also accept package files. These are the files that you get when you save ... read more

Site News - Performing Arts Bimonthly Theme
Posted by gdayars, 1st Jun 2017 at 1:28 AM (29 comments)




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 ... read more

Site News - Sneak Preview of Project CRUMB
Posted by PharaohHound, 21st May 2017 at 7:32 PM (40 comments)

Greetings, simmers!

Here at MTS we've had some great stuff in the works for a while, and we're very excited to finally share a preview for our brand new tutorial browser system, Project CRUMB.

WHAT IS CRUMB?
Create (upload tutorial), Read (view tutorial), Update (edit screen) and Many Browse

MTS has tons of information about modding the sims. And apart from MTS, there's innumerable tutorials spread across other platforms like tumblr and other sims sites. Having so much information available to creators is great, but finding the right tutorial can be difficult when things are spread all across the internet. That is what CRUMB is intended to solve: it will be a single, centralized index of tutorials and modding info from all platforms, offering a user-friendly browsing interface which can be filtered and searched by game, software used, kind of modding, and more.

Uploading a tutorial
Tutorials can be uploaded to MTS, or added to the database from any external website. During the uploading process the submitter is asked to tag the tutorial so that it can be easily found. For example:



Browsing tutorials
All the tutorials will be categorized in the tutorials browser, so you select what you are looking for using the filters. For example, you can select TS3 tutorials, which use Blender, and ... read more

Site News - New option for profiles
Posted by Delphy, 1st May 2017 at 11:12 PM (0 comments)

Hi all,

At MTS we pride ourselves on having free content, all the time, but we also realise that social media and having goals is an important part of creating custom content. To that end we've listened to some calls from the community and added a field to the user profile section, specifically for Patreon links.

Eventually we'll roll this and other social media information into a specific section that's a bit more visible on your downloads, once we figure this out, but for now, go ahead and add your information if you have it.

You can find the new field in the user profile editor, found in the user control panel under user links on the top ... read more
