Some of you might remember the MOCCA and LATTE awards to recognise outstanding achievements in the modding community. The last lot of MOCCAs and LATTEs were some time ago, and with all the development in TS3 modding we have selected a new crop of award winners for us all to recognise. Of course, TS2 is still a big part of the community, and so we will not be excluding creators/innovators who continue to support TS2 for us all to continue to enjoy.
What are MOCCA and LATTE?
The MTS (award for) Outstanding Continued Creative Achievement
aka MOCCA - This is to recognise creators who have consistently produced excellent work, as well as those who have broken the boundaries of creative content.
The Lifetime Achievement for Tools/Technical Excellence
aka LATTE - This is to recognise people who write tools for all to use, and those who generally help in various ways in the community. Without their tireless efforts, we wouldn't be here at all.
This time, we are honouring the following people:
The LATTE Awards:
cmomoney - Many contributions to modding tools for TS3 and pioneering work on new techniques in object modding. granthes - Has contributed many modding tools to make it easier to mod and play our games (Pets rig fix tool, Custom launcher, CCmagic.....). atavera - The wrappers man. If you use S3PE/S3OC to mod TS3 then you use his wrappers somewhere. Echo - A long time site member with excellent modding skills. Made the Postal Package Editor for TS3 and has contributed to many TS2 object mods made by other creators. TSRW Team - Love them or hate them as you will - but TSR Workshop has made object creation a possibility for many new creators.
The MOCCA Awards:
Buzzler - A constant supply of interesting and innovative mods. He is very good at keeping them up to date as well. Phaenoh - She has uploads in nearly every area of TS2 creations and is generally known for her ingenious modded items. oepu - She made the move from TS2 to TS3 and has made lots of pretty items; we hope to see some more from her. Criquette -Airports and Railways and Buses and Trams and Cricket Fields - TS2 neighbourhoods are transformed by Criquettes work. Psychosim - Looking to grungify your game? Look no further. One of the lords of TS2 grunge. ATS Sandy -Lots of variety and high quality items too - add her site to your bookmarks. lidiqnata - a creator with her own distinctive style, inventive and fun items for your simmies.
The award winners will get a custom trophy and a little cup o' caffeine icon by their names.
Time for a big cheer and thanks yous for these talented folks, some of the many people who make our games so much more fun to play. We look forward to handing out more MOCCAs and LATTEs in the future!
