This is the official chat thread for our Calendar Contest!

Here you can post chatty stuff about the contest like:

  • ”The entries are great! My favorite is Simmer1234’s entry for March!”
  • Various other chattery type things - but please do not spam! Remember, we have a Private Message system so this thread is not for conversations you could easily have via PM or IM.

You can also post:

I'll say it, if nobody else will: I think Fivey really captured the essence of spring with her submission. Oh! And I thought I'd see mustuvcatz's download screenshot in the contest forum, the jaws, the cobwebs and the TS3 style pumpkins definitely scream "Halloween!".

I was just coming here to comment on both of these pics, they're absolutely stunning!

Hooo-wee! I know what I'm gonna do today
Some of the entries so far are outstanding! I'm in awe of some picture-taking skillz out there :
I'm firin' up my game... right.... now (which means I have about 45 minutes to get all my work done for the day - TGIF!)

Catherine, your schoolhouse is cute! Reminds me of mine, though it's a bit bigger now that all my sims have had babies

YAY! I'll have to go look at yours...

...it's not on MTS? I wanna see it - do you have a link?
Where I grew up (about an hour N of Tampa, FL) we had a "Little Red School House" - it looked just like this one - and it was used as the town library. (Small town!)

I'm also trying to do a Crofters Hut type thing for St Patty's day... but my game keeps crashing. I think it is the last thing I added to my DL folder, which would be OhBehave's scenic backdrops They're probably fine, but conflicting with something else in there *sigh* I really wanted to use it them too

Hmm, I seem to have a tonne of pics of the inside of the schoolhouse, but almost none of the outside! Just this rather crappy one of one corner of the building:
(I took that because I was marvelling at how much my hood's population has grown)

I do have a few other nice pics from the school, but they really don't tell you anything about the school building .


And this one, which I absolutely love - the poses were completely spontaneous, it was amazing. I like to think that Victoria, the girl in the polkadot dress, is the kind of sim who'd probably frame this. In fact, maybe I should have her do just that...


The school wasn't based on any RL building for me - I did actually grow up just around the corner from my primary school's original, tiny building, but it had been a chapel before it was a school (and later a graphic design agency), so the style didn't really fit with this 'hood. I started out basing my hood's school loosely on Anne of Green Gables - but it's a bigger and more modern than that school!

OH! I love the 'class' picture What a sweet idea!
Yours is an actual working school building; mine's just a one room school house - more for 'hood deco (with a playground) than anything else...

You grew up north of Tampa? Me too! Now I am really curious where (because I'm nosy like that). Nysha, your class pictures are awesome!

I'm loving these pictures! I really want to have a go, maybe I could have a try?

I love Fivey's February one! It makes you feel warm and it's like it actually talks to you saying "Valentines day and romance"

I love Fivey's February picture, the moon in the background is amazing. But how do you get a moon in sims 2? As far as I was aware you only get moons in sims 3, clearly not.

Go for it, TotallySimsCrazy. The more entries, the merrier :D

I may or may not eventually get round to an entry .

marmbite, I think Fivey might be using a custom sky object, like these: http://modthesims.info/d/187229

Yes! I grew up the next county over: Citrus County. Inverness was the town name. Though usually when people ask I say close to Ocala since that's the nearest "big town" that we'd usually make a special trip to since they had an actual mall for school/Christmas shopping and the like. Hello fellow central Floridian!

And yes, please. Keep the entries coming. Nysha is right, the more the merrier!

Yay, just seen myself added to the table, Thanks heaven!

I really enjoyed making that, you're allowed two right? I could make another, i just need a month, and free time to download stuff to do it.

Great entries everyone! May i wish you ALL good luck!

Yes, you can do another as long as it's a different month. You have all month so hopefully you can find the time!

Default Extra pictures
Yippee! I finally decided on my final two and they have been added to the table. Since I took some other alternatives which can't be entered I will share them here.

This first one would have been for February:


The second one would have been November:


And this third picture would have been December:


I wish I could have entered three, it was so hard to decide between the two I entered and my February picture. But I suppose if you could enter three then there would be less people able to enter and people with more expansion packs (and other benefits) would have a bigger advantage. Oh well, I just hope I picked the right two...

I think you may be right. I didn't know you could do that but it's quite a good idea.

@marmbite12 I think November is awesome. It shows me what November is mainly about!

Catherine - the grass that marmbite used looks like this grass or the other grasses by that same creator. (Same grass, one set is lower poly.) If you're interested in the grass that Fivey used, that's probably Gelydh's grass that was on Club Crym.. er, however you spell it lol. I used the same grass basically - I did add ons that are longer, so I used those mostly.

Other than that, my "Grasses" folder (yes, I have one since I was doing edits) shows that 4ESF, cyclonesue, sim man 123, Jonesi (Black Pearl Sims) and nanu have grasses. Nanu's Rigo grass is longer but only 1 tile, so placing a whole "field" of it is a pain. (Which is why I did 4 tile versions of those for myself.)
