[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 ^__^

Trade-off - twentyfourfirst - Closed

twentyfourfirst
What I Can Make: Shoe-swaps; simple TS3-TS2 object conversions (I don't know yet how make them functional, sorry!); age conversions (teen, adult, elder); paintings; hair retextures; default replacements; Sims; walls; fat and pregnancy morphs (yay!). I think that's pretty much it, but I'm always willing to try new things :)

My General Style: Maxis Match

Amount of Participants I Want: 3 2 1

What I'd Like to Receive: I would really love TS3-TS2 conversions of the Bra Tied Shirt and Roller Sport Shorts that came with the'70's, 80's, 90's Stuff Pack (Pickypikachu made them base-game compatible here), but I realise that may be a long shot; for the rest, male hairs retextured in poppet-sim's textures, because those are sorely lacking in my game (you can see which hairs have been retextured at the Poppet Hairs directory); outfits shoe-swapped with Amaryll's flats, because they are amazing; things for elders; things for toddlers; painting recolours; Sims; walls for nurseries; honestly, I'm really not that picky, as long as it's fairly maxis-match, I'm game :3 For some more ideas, you can always have a look at my wishlist :)

I'll also take paintings in with any of the above sayings as well. like this:

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/43/56/02/435602b73f0f7e23acd0055474a9e3b7.jpg - another one I also would really really like to have done.

I LOOOVE shelves like this:
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/a4/61/01/a46101af48e162f0631eb108e09f032b.jpg

Either already filled with photos (like in the picture) or empty with pictures that could be placed on them.

Reaaallly really want this made into a painting in game, doesn't have to have the fluffy tail if it's too much trouble, just a flat image like picture of the bunny butt/tail is fine.
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/c0/e1/02/c0e102c9c1da3bcf13814971b46422d8.jpg

Larger wall arts of pictures arranges in a gallery wall type hanging? No specific images in them, just thing they'd be neat to have. can put some of the sayings and random sim images in them if needed to fill them out. Can be 3 or 4 tile hangings if needed.

Also, none of the items need to be exact (the paintings I pointed out reallly really wanting, or the crib/canopy) just something similiar or the closest you can get with game/meshing limitations.

Sorry this ended up getting so long :/

Event: Mystery Box
Garfield mail

Hello! With February quickly approaching, it's time for another event on this community. However, these are busy weeks and it's not the only event running at the moment, so it's something small. Do you know these kindereggs, where you have an egg made out of chocolate and inside there's a small toy? That's exactly what we're going to do! We're going to make tiny, tiny packages of any kind of custom content and leave them here in this thread. You can participate as many times as you wish and make the little downloads as large, or small as you wish!

Now, for the rules;

- do not mention in the title of your upload what you've made. It's a mystery, after all!
- but to not leave downloaders completely in the dark, please provide pictures and information inside your download.
- as already said, you can choose how big or small your mystery box is, and you can participate more than once.
- you can make anything; from sims to clothing recolours, walls&floors, to really big gifts. Anything is good!

This event runs from the 29th of January to the 28th of February. After the month has run its course, an index post will be made with all the gifts shared in the comments in this thread.

Update on the BigTradeOff management

voleste
Hello! I heard back from our lovely founder, Trapping. I'm now an admin here as well, which makes it way easier to clean up the last few months and see what has been created for each other, like Lina always used to do at the end of the month. I'll be going through the past few threads and make a conclusion + reminder post. And because it's december, we'll stick a Christmas / New Years Eve event to it afterwards! (nothing too big, I know some of you are busy with Secret Santa's and the like. No need to get overwhelmed by all the things to create.)

So give it a few days, and we'll blow new life into The Big Trade Off!

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.
