    Geez I never realized I had so many comps going at one time lol. Some will never open again the ones that I keep on the shelve for later seasons are:

    Simlympics (waiting for more sport poses)
    The Bachelor
    Miss Country Girl

    I've been working on a new project (per request) but now that I saw your list I'm not sure to pursue it..even though I have already started with all the preparations lol ...It's called Rupauls Sim Drag Race.

    Maybe we should put it 2 your vote :)

    OMG please continue the bachelor one... I'd die of happiness

    @xJojox Ahhh, that plum. :c The Gifting and gathering community eventually bounced back, but it's not as strong as it used to be. I find it strange that so many left for Sims 3 though. I thought most players preferred Sims 2?

    I did, i loved it more than any game ... in fact i didn't play sims 3 longer than it's first expansion. i was disappointed with it. i felt a bit of a loss whe sims 2 community died. i disappeared out of the community for the entire duration of sims 3 (about 5 years) it still took me about a year to begin to enjoy sims 4.

    @JoyfulSims It's fine, and I'm sorry as well for tagging you. It's not meant to make you feel pressured, you don't ever have to reply actually. I'm sorry you feel that way though.

    @Zita1966z Thank you! I think you're looking at the past competition section though! xD You only have 3 currently going. :* I'll keep my eye out for those threads when you reopen them so I can move them back up to the current list.

    We have a bit too many going on at the moment, as well as another Drag comp currently running that isn't getting as many applications as I had expected and hoped for that kind of thing, so the chances of a RuPaul doing well seems slim at the moment. If you still want to attempt it, I'd suggest attempting a poll first to even see if people will join it, and if it gets enough positive reception (which for normal comps should be at least 7+), then I'd recommend waiting until the schedule clears up. Since there are quite a few that just started, I'd say once those near an end to place the thread up. If too many appear at once they burn out both the models and hosts.
    I was planning on running my own RuPaul's Drag Race when I got the chance, but you're welcome to run it instead. :3

    @Penguinwa101 Thank youuu! *Hugs* I'm glad you like it!

    @gramatique Yw! That's exactly what it means! Of course voting isn't mandatory, if that's what you're thinking. xD If you want me to remove you from that list, I can. ^_^

    @Meeshelby Hi!!! I finally got it up! LOL!

    @dafadolly Awwww! :blush: Thank you, that really means a lot! I love helping, so it's my pleasure to do what I can to help and make life easier on others.

    @xJojox When I first got the Sims 3 I played the base game for a tiny bit, but noticed how quickly I got bored with it, did some research and discovered a whole boat load of stuff to add. The game was a 100 times better after that but it's a lot of money just to make a game playable.... >_>
    I played the Sims 2 after they released it for free and I can definitely see why people love it! My favorite thing to do is the silly stuff, like waking my sim up and dressing in the closet for the day, and then heading to the stores and physically shopping. Absolutely loooove the tiny details. And the ability to make my own clothes and sew! I can see why majority was disappointed in S3's release after playing S2, I really can. Of course I'm still reaaaaally behind in playing Sims 2 and have barely scratched the surface. xD And sims 3. Modeling is my life atm. LOL
    I can't really get into Sims 4 myself, just feels empty and not very interesting. I'm sure if I spent money on one of the packs it'd be more enjoyable, but I'm not about to throw money down when I can just get it all on sale 2+ years from now, like I did with S3. :tongue:
    That's really sad though. :cry: I'm going to hate when Sims 3 dies off......Sims 4 is our new family though, so cheers to a promising future. :3 <3 And pray for a movable sims moveobjects cheat and invisible lights/improved lighting, cause the modeling community needs it. :lol:

    amen to that... that would be soooo good. my sims always reset when trying to do things. they need to just stay!!!!
  • gramatiquegramatique Posts: 526 Member
    @MizoreYukii there is some invisible buydebug lights but unfortunately the quality of their lighting is uh... not that top notch haha. And it's okay, I don't mind helping out with voting if the host wants to haha

    @MizoreYukii You can add me to the voting list! I'm taking a large break from comps, but I still check the forums for voting tags :)

    Never mind! I'm already on it, just missed it somehow lol
  • MizoreYukiiMizoreYukii Posts: 5,813 Member
    @gramatique When did they add them to S4? I must go find them! I'm sure they can help in some way, other than making it easier to light the sim without a lamp in her face. xD
    Oh, maybe instead we could make a mod that turns objects invisible or something. O_O I'm going to need to do some research. xD

    @Meeshelby That's okay. xD

    I was just reading through all the tags for each thing like voting and such and noticed I wasn't included on the trial period list. I've actually only been participating in this part of the forums for a month or so and I haven't been eliminated or had the chance to finish a contest yet. I jumped in feet first so I'm already hosting my own! Lol :) but does that exempt me from the trial period title? I definitely don't plan on leaving anytime soon. Discovering this side of the forums was really like a dream to me! Only time prior to this I'd ever been in a sims competition was during the sims 3 era when I had an active simblr. I joined a competition there where you had to upload staged photos and explain more about your girl each round to see who won the guy the host had created! It was so much fun. Sadly I never saw any opportunities to join comps pop up after that (until I found you guys ;))

  • xJojoxxJojox Posts: 5,913 Member
    i was the same, im a newbie really too @dafadolly. i found this forum in february and i was stoked. coz i used to join contests at an invisionfree site and modthesims2 when it was a popular place to be :) most of the staff were plum, and i made my own site shortly after and hosted them there :)
  • gramatiquegramatique Posts: 526 Member
    @MizoreYukii they're buydebug items, so you need the bb.showhiddenobjects cheat for them to show.
  • MizoreYukiiMizoreYukii Posts: 5,813 Member
    @dafadolly There were a few people, you included, who I couldn't tell if they had finished anything yet or not, so I did my best to categorize based on what I saw. I wasn't about to dig for hours just to confirm this or that, as that would be silly, so I based it on who had been here for a while before I came back from my own break. :3 And don't worry about it, it's not really a title to wave around or anything. xD As I mentioned above the list, it's mainly a way to keep track of new people. I see a ton of new people join a competition, half the time never even finish it, or finish one and then disappear and never come back. It gets confusing for hosts and makes it hard to keep track of who is actively modeling and who isn't now that we have a tagging system. I mean if you want I can move you to it, but I don't think it's necessary. Lol

    I'm glad you love this community! You should have seen the other competitions for Sims 3 (besides the modeling section) held in the Gifts and Gathering section. We had soooo many comps, all diverse and interesting, and they weren't modeling (well, we even had a Project Runway and a second fashion comp sorta like modeling) so there was no pressure in editing and learning all the details. xD I'm sure you would have loved it since you enjoyed that Bachelor comp. :smiley: Btw, I think there's some Sims 4 Bachelor comps on tumblr and in the CAS or writing section, so maybe you could join some there if you're interested? Or just wait for Zita to start the other one again. xD

    @gramatique Now that I think about it, I think I've already tested them, and they're missing front facing lights and large lights, the current ones are 1x1 only. Hmmm....

    Hmm, to jump in on the lighting convo. Have you tried Lumia Lovers NOGLO lighting mod?

    @Penguinwa101 I don't think I have! I can't really remember what I've put into my game, but it doesn't sound familiar (at least for S4). I'll have to go check. xD
  • Ash89Ash89 Posts: 3,122 Member
    Wow @MizoreYukii this is great and very generous of you to put in the time to do this! Thank you, this will definitely help the community <3

    @Ash89 Thank you, and you're welcome! :3

    Added the new competitions!
    "Current" listing has been rearranged to include new and recurring competitions at the top. I couldn't stand looking at the unorganized mess anymore. xD Plus it makes more sense.

    Also, I posted this thread over at Simmetry Design as well. If you haven't signed up yet, make sure you do!
  • MizoreYukiiMizoreYukii Posts: 5,813 Member
    Added two new members, and corrected @JennaCatz name since her account is malfunctioning. Sorry that's happening!
    Forgot to tag the new members incase they don't look through the main forum section.
    Boop @HappyPanda @xCurlySimmerx @XLexisimsX @natastic @krissybogey @KenzRe @Neverfalle @Mzsammyrose @Sc3niX

    Also, we have a new competition that launched over at Simmetry! Here is the link and the competition description!

    Canvas // by JKAmaryllis // All Games // Taking Applications

    @JKAmaryllis This is a competition I ran way back in the sims 3 forum days. I loved it, and for some reason I have "competition fever" again. So against my better judgment, I've decided to do this again! *blows out competition cobwebs* Back on track, though, this competition is pretty unique. Unless stated otherwise, the pictures do not even require a sim to be in them! And when there is a sim, it's not even required to be the same sim. So obviously any gender on the spectrum is fine. Assignments will be centered around certain types of art or some kind of artistic theme or style. Some examples (and I might recycle these, so get your gears moving) from past competitions are pop art, propaganda, still life, steampunk, etc.
