|15th Feb 2019, 9:08 PM||Simland's Next Top Model #1|
This is a franchise I've been a fan of since about 2012. I decided to recreate it in TS2 2013. Since then I've made 13 cycles as of 2018. When I started off I was very much a beginner when it came to picture taking, and didn't know what I was doing when it came to "showrunning" either. So many cycles are quite amateurish. They got better though (both visually and writing wise), and there was a significant raise in quality eventually. Still, I wouldn't feel right just skipping the earlier ones when uploading them here.
To give you an idea of the quality change: Cycle 2 took me 4 days to make. Cycle 13 took me 4 months!
If you can't stand the low quality, I'd urge you to please wait until Cycle 10-11 or so. 10 is when the fashion photos actually started to MATTER (lol), and 11 is when I started taking them in HD. I also used other than townies eventually. And 13 is the best I've ever done so far. Just saying! All cycles are translated from Swedish.
PS. If there's enough interest, I may make the first cycle with reader-submitted sims!
Without further ado, I present to you:
SIMLAND'S NEXT TOP MODEL CYCLE 1!
Allow me to introduce the Simland's Next Top Townie Model presenter ... Lyra Yanks!
Lyra has absolutely NO experience of the modeling career and takes this with the least possible seriousness.
But she is SO beautiful, and SO mean ... There is no one better for the job!
Welcome to Simland's Next Top Townie Model Cycle 1! In this competition, 8 beautiful townies will compete for the title and 100,000 Simoleans! One by one they'll be cut, based on their ability to take care of their needs and to make friends entirely on their own. Before each photoshoot, which is done at 7 am every free day from the host's job, a contestant will be eliminated. The one who has the lowest number of friends, or the lowest needs, if several of them have equally many friends, will be voted out. Finally, the winner remains!
The contestants are ... Greta Clarin
and Vanessa Janzon! Let's kick this season off!
Vanessa seems to have trouble taking care of herself.
So Vanessa Janzon was the one who had to leave first.
Makeovers! Now there will finally be some model quality on these chicks!
Greta Clarin got brown, wavy hair to accentuate her sweet face.
Marie Renberg had the wrong look for her skin. She got dark, licked hair and trimmed eyebrows.
Lilly Dolk got bangs for her high forehead and a more edgy style.
Platinum blond, bunned hair makes Anitra Segerfeldt's face light up.
Connie Palm's boring, black ponytail was replaced by short-cut, red hair.
Hanna Kardell gets blond, thick hair in Christina Aguilera style, to be really cute.
Linda Morell already looked good in ponytail but got a thicker and shinier one. Make-up emphasizes her piercing, beautiful eyes.
And then they are released.
Greta Clarin unfortunately was eliminated.
Now it's time for the girls' first catwalk in their own home! Linda Morell was the first one out.
Hanna Kardell was next.
Everyone did well and the competition intensifies!
Marie slipped a bit and chose to pee on the carpet instead of in the toilet.
Anitra and Lilly play with the bubble blower. A well-known needs drainer.
Unfortunately it was Marie Renberg who had to leave! She was a big favorite!
The remaining girls travel to Twikki Island for their first bathing suit photoshoot!
A fire breaks out immediately when they get home!
Thankfully it went well.
Except for Anitra Segerfeldt who was eliminated!
Half are gone and now they travel to Takemizu Village!
Lilly Dolk took a fantastic picture! Probably the best so far in the competition!
Overall, the girls did very well. Lilly and Connie, however, do not do well on the needs front; they use the infamous needs drainer again!
Which was too much for Connie Palm, who got kicked off!
The three semi-finalists: Linda Morell, Hanna Kardell and Lilly Dolk!
They travel to Three Lakes for their last overseas shoot!
As usual, a fire starts when they get home. That damn lightning!
Unfortunately, Lilly Dolk's performance was not enough and she had to leave the competition.
Hanna Kardell and Linda Morell as finalists, are now participating in the biggest annual fashion show in Simland!
Here they now will show off all the clothes they have modeled in throughout the season!
Who do you think will win the competition?
Will it be Linda Morell, the sexy beauty with the piercing eyes?
Or will it be Hanna Kardell, the sweet, fresh blonde?
It will soon be decided!
Despite being competitors, Hanna and Linda have become the bestest of best friends!
They are both very likable people.
They have both managed to get the most friends among the contestants, and at the same time managed to take care of their needs to stay in the competition!
And next day it's clear! Linda Morell was eliminated, and you know what this means!
THE WINNER IS HANNA KARDELL!
Hanna Kardell, the sweet and fresh blonde won the whole competition, and walks away with §100,000 (in the form of 10 big TV screens), tremendous pride and a complete portfolio!
Her last shoot is the winner shoot that she gets completely for herself.
Her best photo will be displayed in the house throughout the whole next season.
Everyone who was voted out brought a photo album with all their photos with them. Everyone who got through the round also got the photo in large format. The loser's latest photo was sold.
Hanna is the only one who got to keep 100% of her photos!
She defeated all the girls, one by one. With blood, sweat and tears she reached all the way! Which she only had 1/8 chance of doing. In addition, a friend only counts if the friend remains in the competition! So it was also about getting the RIGHT friends, because if a friend was eliminated, she was no longer counted.
And she did it! Go out there and make me proud, Hanna!
Hanna Kardell is Simland's Next Top Model !!!
|17th Feb 2019, 8:58 PM||Cycle 2 - Part I #2|
Welcome to Simland's Next Top Townie Model Cycle 2! In case you have forgotten it, this is a competition that aims to find the beautiful townie who can take care of her needs and get friends on her own, enough to avoid being eliminated! Exactly at 7 am every free day, the girl with the least number of friends, and the lowest need level, if several of them have as many friends, will be disqualified. Here are all applicants for Cycle 2!
The biggest reason not to go further is ugliness. Then comes age. Only the ages teen, young adult and adult are allowed.
And only girls are allowed. Here, Lyra tries to say goodbye to the applicants who did not get in, and gets a random kiss from a stranger.
And here they are!
The competitors in Cycle 2 of Simland's Next Top Townie Model! The contestants are ...
In this cycle we have, besides adults, also three teenagers!
Who do you think will win this cycle?
Beatrice and Lotta H get to know each other.
For the teenagers Elisabeth and Lilly it is considerably easier!
They jump straight into a pillow fight!
Beatrice is the first to sit down at the other great needs drainer: The piano!
And Lotta H sits at the needs drainer number 1. The reason they are called that is because both the bubble blower and the piano make the sims sit there for several hours so that they never take care of their needs! The bubble blower, however, is worse because the sims can be "rescued" from the piano when the music lovers' club leader visits. There is no one to rescue them from the bubble blower until they themselves have too low needs. So that is number 1.
Lotta M also sits down at the bubble blower.
And so do Elisabeth and Sibylla! Now the bubble blower seats are full, so no one else risks being caught in this trap!
It takes a long time before they leave. So long that Elisabeth and Lotta M faint on the way from there!
For some reason, the sims like more to drink alcohol than eating, to fix their hunger. They also like to...
... sleep on the floor instead of in bed.
Lotta Hammarström was the one to leave first!
The rest of the girls get MAKEOVERS!
Elisabeth Sellén gets black hair to accentuate her exotic side.
Beatrice Rosdahl gets long, beautiful hair in a nicer color.
Lilly Sehlin's hair was already perfect for her face's bone structure. Instead, she gets beautiful makeup to emphasize her features and special eye shape.
Barbara Melander's makeover was one of the most dramatic. Red, short hair was not right for her face shape and skin color. She gets long, flowing black hair. Her makeover from short, red hair to long, black hair makes her look like the famous model Fatima Siad from America's Next Top Model.
Lotta Mårtensson already suited in short hair. But it is bleached and she gets some extensions. Blue makeup makes her unique in this competition.
Sibylla Croona gets long, flowing, shiny black hair instead of her short hair. It makes her a real model.
Diana Segerfeldt also gets a unique look in this competition by giving her pink hair. Pinky becomes her second name!
The girls do not find it difficult to maintain a good atmosphere in the group.
Instead, they play with each other as if it were a summer camp.
Good atmosphere and good cohesion.
But who does not measure up?
Who is outside of this strong cohesion?
Bad girl! Lilly is far too young to drink alcohol, but she doesn't care about that! Luckily Lyra stands with her back against her, otherwise she might have been ashamed.
Night or day, the bubble blower is constantly occupied.
Someone who is eager to sleep in the tent instead of on the floor is Barbara.
Beatrice is saved from the piano!
And Barbara takes a refreshing dip.
To later hang out with Beatrice.
While Elisabeth sleeps on a chair.
Diana is among the few who choose what should be the obvious choice of sleeping place.
The others may not feel comfortable sharing a bed so they solve it in other ways.
But Lilly got a bed for herself.
The result is that Diana becomes active after a good night's sleep.
So active that she kicks through the glass!
The evening comes and there is a party as usual.
Which Hanna Kardell was invited to! The last winner of Simland's Next Top Townie Model!
Even Greta Clarin is invited, a previous participant.
The contest gets too much for Lilly, and she breaks out in WHINING.
Someone who doesn't whine is Sibylla, she is a tough gal who doesn't need a shower - for her a sponge wash will do.
All their drinking is starting to be unhealthy.
Someone who actually takes care of her needs properly is Barbara.
Which this girl didn't do. Beatrice Rosdahl had to leave the competition!
Now it is time for the girls' first catwalk in the home! Here you see Lilly Sehlin!
The photoshoot went well and Barbara and Elisabeth discuss it.
Diana ended up in the trap! Will she be rescued before it's too late?
Lilly and Sibylla make things less serious.
Things get a little more serious when Lotta and Sibylla witness a lightning strike!
Which has devastating consequences for their needs!
Sibylla made it but Lotta Mårtensson was eliminated.
|1st Mar 2019, 8:24 PM||Cycle 2 - Part II #3|
Now they travel to Twikkii Island for the swimsuit shoot!
After the shoot, they enjoy themselves with a little hula hula.
When they come home, they enjoy American football.
Barbara looks extremely amused.
Fortunately, no one needs to get into the piano trap this time around! A repulsive NPC takes over it!
Unfortunately, she eventually leaves it and Lilly sits there anyway.
Barbara swims as usual.
Aw, check out little Elisabeth!
Aw, check out dumb Diana who sits down at the bubble blower trap!
The others are a little smarter than that, and take care of their needs.
But not everyone...
Barbara, who used to be so good, sits down in the other trap!
Who gets knocked out?
For whom is the performance in the house not enough?
Sibylla looks like a real supermodel when she moves in the water.
Who are having it cosy inside the tent?
And who is too cosy instead of taking care of the needs?
Elisabeth gets an outlet for her childishness.
You can tell she isn't an adult.
Just hope the teenagers are grown up enough to take care of themselves properly as the adults.
Because they're doing a pretty good job at it.
Unfortunately, that was not the case for Lilly Sehlin. She went out, having been a great favorite.
She was a great favorite because she nearly didn't join at all! She was first deemed too "ugly", but I regretted it when I saw her in the crowd and thought she was indeed beautiful! Therefore, she became a favorite and I would have liked to see her as a winner. But that was not the case! Now we have another go, let's find the real, well-deserved winner!
The journey to Takemizu Village sets off!
Barbara Melander takes her best picture so far!
It's probably the best so far, of both seasons.
Elisabeth gets a new makeover when her blush is removed.
A long way into the competition, the host must feel that ALL who are left deserve to win, and those who don't look perfect will usually get a new makeover to really be able to deserve the win.
Do you think everyone here deserves to win?
Or do you think someone doesn't?
Whoever wins, has earned it, since she has taken care of herself the best while she has acquired the most friends. But she still has to be a delight for the eye to have on a picture in the house throughout the next season.
That is the only part that is up to the host. The rest is up to the contestants!
Elisabeth sits down in the trap.
Those who sleep do not take care of their needs as Energy is not included in the total needs meter.
But it is still necessary to be able to take care of the other needs! Something that is not necessary is what Diana is doing now.
Barbara looks unusually content. Does she feel safe?
No one can be... especially not when they sit in traps all the time.
But it's good that they work on friendship. It's prio number 1. Because that is counted first. Whoever has the lowest need level is not necessarily the one who goes out. It is the number of friends that counts first.
And this time it was Barbara who didn't cut it.
She took the best picture but unfortunately it is not what counts. Otherwise, the winner could have been chosen from the beginning by the host. You could have chosen the most beautiful right away. No, because the winner is the one who is best at the game itself. Which Barbara Melander was not. Thus, she had to leave the competition.
|1st Mar 2019, 8:30 PM||Cycle 2 - Part III #4|
This far into the competition, Diana needed a new makeover. She was far too pink and needed to change in order for the host to feel she deserves to win, which she has a big shot at now. And now she deserves to win!
And so do the other two! Here we have the three semi-finalists: Diana Segerfeldt, Sibylla Croona and Elisabeth Sellén! Who do you think will win? You have 1/3 chance to guess right!
Will it be Diana Segerfeldt?
Or Elisabeth Sellén?
Before we find out, the girls have to travel to Three Lakes and photograph their jacket ad!
And then it was done! Now it remains a few days before we get to know who is going out next time.
Then we also know who will be our two finalists!
Will Diana be one of them?
Or Sibylla? Or Elisabeth?
The risk for one of them to go out is only 1/3 ...
But everyone has the same risk! So there is no way to predict who is going out.
But if you put yourself in a trap, the risk is greater.
But the girls replace each other at the piano, it seems. One cannot know who will go out.
Who is taking care of herself the worst?
Goodbye, Diana Segerfeldt.
And so we have our two finalists! Elisabeth Sellén...
... and Sibylla Croona!
Not much remains to be done before we know who the winner will be, of Simland's Next Top Townie Model Season 2!
Will it be Sibylla Croona, the soft but sharp beauty with flowing hair?
Or will it be Elisabeth Sellén, the young, fierce and exotic teenage chick?
Soon we will know!
As normally, all clothes that they have been shot in throughout the season are shown!
Pontus Borg from the Victouri legacy passes by while the girls spend their last days in the house.
Elisabeth sits in the trap!
And she doesn't seem to want to leave it. Is this her downfall, or will she manage, against all odds?
Sibylla doesn't seem to be interested in getting caught in any trap.
She is more interested in winning. Will she succeed? Or will she fall on other shortcomings? Let me mention that the last elimination in each season is special. Not only the number of friends and the need level count, but there the entirety counts. That's friends, HOW good friends they are with their friends, the needs, and also the aspiration level! Therefore, it is ensured between each shoot that everyone starts with the same aspiration level.
The winner is...
Not Elisabeth Sellén!
SIBYLLA CROONA !!!
She was not only the best in this round, but won as a whole as well. Everything was counted, but she still won!
Sibylla has proven that she is the best at this game! So it was the soft but sharp beauty with flowing hair who ended up winning this year's edition of Simland's Next Top Townie Model!
As usual, she gets a private underwear shoot. It was fortunate that she got the underwear shoot, so that she got to replace her ugly underwear. Because they are allowed to keep their clothes afterwards!
The longer you stay in the competition, the more clothes you get. And the more photos you get.
Sibylla was the only one who managed to stay in the competition and get 100% of all the pictures and clothes you could get! She also won §100,000!
Sibylla Croona is Simland's Next Top Model !!!
