View Full Version : Revival of the Monthly Themes

We've decided to dig up a golden oldie and reintroduce to you the monthly themes! Get inspired by the chosen theme to build a house, make some new clothing, recolor a rug or maybe even a mod. Anything goes! This is not a contest, entries are not judged, everyone's a winner and you can post as many uploads as you like! A shiny new achievement sticker will be waiting for you when you've uploaded your entry.

March Theme - A Day at the Beach
Think sea, sundresses, sand, seagulls and shorelines!

The Rules

The usual creator guidelines apply to all uploads.
Anything goes! As long as it's somewhat related to the theme, sadly Santa and Rudolph won't get you a sticker.
Only uploads that are uploaded before March 31 will receive an achievement sticker. 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: themebeach. This way it is much easier to keep track of uploads and we know that you are participating in the monthly theme.

Beach... hmmm... I haven't uploaded a beach lot yet! /me once again abandons all projects except almost-complete current project and runs off to start working on the most expensive (duh, me) beach lot ever... :)

No, you can just build and share lots the regular way :)

I'm assuming this is open to ALL the various sims games (1,2,3,4 & life stories)?

I'm really glad that y'all chose to bring themes back! ;) Thanks!

Is it good enough? Will it be approved or rejected!?! :blink: :D

I'm sorry, this is only for the games we have an upload area for, so 2, 3 and 4. :)

Do uploads need to go to the queue? Just wondering if I queue jump like I do now, will it get missed?

Klaartje
9th Mar 2015, 11:48 AM
No, you can still use your queue bypass :) Bypass uploads are all checked by moderators anyway, so it's unlikely it will get missed. If you haven't received your sticker within a couple of days feel free to poke me here or send me a PM :)

In other news: we have handed out the first stickers as the entries keep coming in! Go check them out :D

I don't think I have ever created a beach lot - because for some reason my hoods are usually either rural or suburbs - but I guess this could be a great incentive to try something completely new for once.
Not sure I'll manage to upload it in time but simply trying to build it will surely be cool.

Also is a house boat for Sims 2 allowed? It's not an actual beach lot although you place it on a beach road. Probably should have asked that before I started building, but I'll upload it regardless. Would be nice to get a participation sticker for it though.

That sounds fine :) We have a very broad definition of 'beach' ;)

Hey, does The Sims Stories series count as The Sims 2, since it's pretty much the same thing?

You can edit it.

You can't edit while it's in approval state, unfortunately. I always kind of wonder what kind of queue mts has to work with before stuff becomes public.

A pool lot is considered beach-themed?

I have uploaded a lot with the tag "themebeach", when will I receive the sticker?

I know that, I meant once it is up. Then if it isn't seen just PM a mod. They should have less queue now then they used to.

It's a really cute sticker. :) I was thinking after clicking on it, it would be nice if it went to whatever it was that earned the sticker, so for this one to the themebeach download the person uploaded. I guess that would be too hard to implement. I was thinking it would be nice to see what earned you the sticker or for others browsing your profile.

How broad?Anything as long as it is vaguely beach related. Lots, clothes, objects, sims etc. Don't forget to tag it 'themebeach'.

We will be doing this until the end of time most definitely next month. Because today is a certain date, we thought it was better to post the new theme tomorrow :) The announcement will have its own shiny thread!
