Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This year's MTS Calendar contest was not quite as popular as the previous year, but we still had a lot of great entries. Once again the winners were used to create a 12 day calendar. As last time a special 20 day SSN calendar was also done. But, I'm not content to just sit back and upload what is essentially a recolored clone of a previous project, so I added new features to this one! Yay! (I also went back and added them into the old calendar in case anyone likes that one better.)
The filler images were chosen by looking at the highest non-winning scores. Anyone who had already won a spot on the calendar was skipped over to let others have a shot. The full 12 and 20 photos are on a collage attached at the bottom of this post. The winners names' are included in the catalog description of each calendar.
With the 12 Day calendar you can choose which month to start at and every night around midnight the photo will roll over to the next. Unfotunately, the setting will not stick after a lot reload, so you will have to remember to reset it each time you enter the lot. The calendar itself costs $100 and is in the decorative > wall hangings category.
The 20 Day calendar is made for those of your with Seasons, where each season is 5 days long and your year is 20 days. As part of the new updates, this calendar does not need to be set at all. It will automatically set the day to the correct weekday (as does the 12 day one), the season to whatever season you happen to be in, and the picture to the day of the year. The 'year' starts at the top of the seasons UI, btw. As another special new feature, in debug mode (testingcheatsenabled) you can now change which day of the week it is and change the season to the first day of any season. This was done to help you sync your neighborhood up easier. It's a tad cheaty, so that's why its only in debug mode.
Additionally, I've also created a 20 Day calendar that includes Holidays! It is identical to the normal 20 Day calendar, but on 8 days throughout the year you will be notified via pop up message that today is a holiday and what that holiday is celebrating. It is entirely up to you to decide if you actually want your sims to observe the holiday, so it's pretty harmless. The holidays were created by doing some research on the TS3 holidays and then tweaking them, and adding in a few holidays that are already present in our games (with the Holiday Packs) and also a few things that many simmers share in common. MTS celebrates Great Ideas Day on April 1st, and every simmer whose played a Legacy or most other challenge knows you need a Founder to get started.
It is up to you whether you intend to observe these holidays, or if different sim families celebrate different ones. I've found in my game Winter's Eve and Day gets celebrated if there are kids in the house and if not, then the adults celebrate New Years Eve instead. Lover's Day has become a big wedding and engagement day, and the kids love Llama Fools Day. How you play with these new days is up to you, and you can of course let some holidays go by unnoticed, like Arbor Day, does anyone even know what month that is in?
P.S. Congrats to our winners!
The calendars have 16 faces, super low poly to make up for the slightly larger texture files.
Heaven for hosting the contest, and the staff for judging.
Neder for the day changing code.
Paladin's Palace for the season changing debug code.
Inge for creating the page flipping code on the original calendar.
Black Spirit for the day of the week code.
