[sticky post]The Big Trade-Off
Doggy
trappingit


You know all the "comment and I make you a Sim"-posts that's been going around? The ones that in some cases evolved to including more things than Sims? Well, something that's popular and (above that) fun to do deserves to get some attention. In this case I figured a community would be a good way to go. This is The Big Trade-Off. Dedicated to requests in forms of trading items with each other. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner on creating or have done it for years - anyone is welcome to participate. How will this work then? Well, first of all you need to become a member so go do that. The goal is that there when this gets started will be at least one running post at all times where members trade items with each other (more info will be found under the cut). If this goes the way I hope there will be events, challenges and contests laying ahead ^__^

Time to say goodbye

As I announced here I've descided to stop being a part of the Sims 2 community indefinitely. This means that I will no longer be running TBTO. If anyone would like to step in, take over and become a mod and owner of the site message me and we'll discuss the possibilities. Thank you so much to everyone who helped TBTO become what it's been and is today by creating, sharing and being awesome - without you this site would never have become anything. So thank you so much everyone - this has been a dream of mine and it's been so much fun to run it for over two years. It's with a sad face that I say goodbye <3

What I Can Make: Sims, lots, and paintings. I've finally gotten a laptop that I can work with and need to get back into the groove of making things.

My General Style: 1920s semi-realistic. I use pooklet and such hairs but all items and clothing in my game are a mash of maxis/realistic types.

Amount of Participants: 2-3

What I'd Like to Receive: Anything 1920s themed for my game. I'd really adore clothing for anyone who isn't an adult but will not say no to clothing for them either. I really need swimsuits for everyone so that would get a lot of love. I also would like community lots that aren't giant and lag. Or hair, I can always use recolors of the cloche and curl hat or lidiqnata/lolabythebay's cloche hair. But like I said, almost anything is welcomed as long as it fits into the theme.

The Big Makeover-Challenge of Summer 2014
Garfield mail
voleste




For those that have been with this community since the beginning might recognise this challenge - indeed, we have done this before - two years ago - and we decided to bring it back! We had loads of lovely entries last time. Just scroll down to the comments and look at all the awesome sims people made!

Under the cut you will find five different sims, with different genetics. It's up to you to pick one sim and make them over, in whatever style you like. However, that wouldn't be much of a challenge and the idea is here to make a piece of custom content specifically for this sim. You can think of a piece of makeup, clothing, hair, or maybe even an entire skinblend if you're feeling creative. You can make an entire set, or just a single recolour, it's all okay! As long as you created it for this makeover. This special piece of cc will then be shared along with your pictures and made over sim.

Along with the sims and the rules, there is a small participation prize under the cut.
