Default July Monthly Theme - Future/Time Travel
Hello!

Despite all the mayhem of the move to the new servers we have managed to organise all the votes and our new monthly theme is:

Future/Time Travel

Yes, I know we have no upload system at the moment, but nothing to stop you all getting started on creating for the new theme

UPDATE: the great wizzard is back - time to fill up the luggage.

How to take part?
Make a Future/Timetravel-themed upload. It can be anything - a lot, a sim, clothes, furniture, whatever comes to your mind, as long as it has something to do with the theme.

The upload process goes the way it normally does (once fixed). You include required pictures, files, information... The only new requirement is that you include some of the following tags to your upload search keywords:
  • "theme-timetravel"
  • "theme-future"
  • "timetravel"
  • "future"
  • "theme"

How long is the theme active?

The new theme starts today, July 3rd 2011 - and ends July 31st 2011.


Also...

We have gathered the votes for the next themes

Based on input from our loyal MTSers we have a list of all the themes we will be running in the next 6 months, but we won't be telling you all of them at once.

Good luck with the new theme - I look forward to some futuristic stuff.
20 users say thanks for this. (Who?)

Looking forward to these additions. A small but somewhat pertinent question.. Is this for The Sims 3, 2 or a universal contest?

(To Delphy: Good work getting the sites back up. I know from experience how taxing it can be to exude this level of effort alone. You have my respect and thanks.)

Stylus15, it will be for both games and every type of download that you can make for either of them.

Little typo there.

I love this idea. Can't wait to see what everyone creates!

You say "time travel", can this include travelling BACK as well? So, I could, say, a 1700's era pirate starter home collection?

Beh! Of all the themes for my Sims to quit working on! Mlargh! Especially since, being a huge Doctor Who fan, this is the definition of up my alley.

Will try to whip something up. (The question is, what?)

Is there an ETA on when uploads are going to be fixed? Have careers done that are at least semi-theme-related (hooray Fringe careers!), but can't submit if no uploads.

Any idea when we will be able to upload again?

I might try something futuristic maybe. Now you say "Future/Time Travel" so like traveling back in time, say like cavemen, would also be okay, or just futuristic?

@simsgeneration1

That's a good question, I really want to know too. I mean, it does say "Time Travel" and that includes the past, but then past time travel is so vague. It could be from anything between cavemen and the 1990s.

right, then it would really be anything really and wouldn't be much of a challenge. maybe if it does include past maybe a set time limit would be good. like BC times. I'll just focus on making future stuff now (I already have a few things in mind for some outfits) until this is more clarified.

I love you! I can't create yet (ohh if I could though!! =D), but I'm close to getting my next-gen series of Pleasantview ready, & this timing could NOT have been better if I'd asked for this to happen!

I shall be stalking for these entries when the upload system begins working again. ^_^


Thank you, just.... I don't know what to say. I'll personally credit the creator of this challenge as well as the talent folks that enter when I make the series. Just... thank you! <3

Lee, will you be remaking your lost Delorean? Considering you had it all made and finished, I think you get dibs on that first

Also, I don't really think just making stuff from the past counts as 'time travel', we would have just had an 'in the past' theme instead. Not that we have strict rules about this sort of thing though, just sayin'

Working on my late Creator Anniversary project, then I'll finish the fixes on my Smallhouse Set.
I moved house this week, and I have so much going on IRL that just needs to be done first. ;)

Like my work? Help me make a difference!
I'm all about the stickers, gotta catch 'em all!

@Phae - yea, I will finish the blasted thing. TS2 of course

Agreeing with Phae on this - the theme is "Time Travel/Future" not "Time Travel/Some Period in History that takes your Fancy". Unless you make a medieval time machine of course. Possibly water wheel powered?

I've made a lot and Sim based of H G Wells' The Time Machine. It would be easily mistaken for just a Victorian home except for the time machine in the attic, but I assume it's probably in theme enough to enter.

Perhaps if I also made some Eloi and Morlocks.

I'm tempted to make something that manipulates save-game files so you can travel into the "past".

Or maybe someone should make an entire neighborhood that looks as TS1 as possible, right down to bad graphics.

Or put the entire game in black and white and call it Old Timey Sims.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Speaking of TS1, we did have Pleasantville. And way easier to recolor for.

Now I'm wondering. Does time travel/future mean : time travel and - or future, or does it have to revolve around both?
