View Full Version : Lou's Life Stages Contest - APPLICATIONS
24th Oct 2009, 11:08 PM
This contest is mainly about seeing a sim grow from Toddler to Elder, and telling us their main life story on the way. You will be using the same sim the whole way through this contest, so create your sim wisely (please read the 'Tips' section for more information).
This is a Sims 3 Contest only.
Only female sims may be entered.
One entry per person.
No hair, makeup or backgrounds to be shopped.
Only editing to pictures that is allowed is to lighten, add text, sharpen or blur them.
You will need to use the 'Trigger Birthday' cheat to participate in this contest. To do this, hold down ‘ctrl’, 'shift' and 'c' while in live mode to bring the cheat box up. Then type testingcheatsenabled true. Now hold down 'shift' and click on your sim. The option should come up to trigger their birthday.
I strongly suggest that when creating a sim you start off by creating a young adult or adult to know what they will turn out to look like when older. This is purely down to the fact that if you create a toddler without seeing her grown up, she may not turn out how you would have liked her too!
Emergency Judges -
You will be scored on the following;
One Head Shot
One Body Shot
Two Free Shots of their current everyday lifestyle (E.g., are they spoilt? Cute? Do they enjoy drawing? Anything that shows what they get up to in this stage of life).
Story - Please give a few lines to explain about your sim at this stage of life,
Have you got a gorgeous little angel or a devilish brat? Looks more like mother but acts more like father?
Show and explain here in the Application Round!
I look forward to seeing all your simmies :) .

26th Oct 2009, 12:01 AM
wish i could, but I'm sims 2 only. :(
26th Oct 2009, 12:26 AM
Actually, do we have to use a created sim? I'd like to use a ghost-toddler.
26th Oct 2009, 01:12 AM
hyghtyme - You can use whatever sim you wish, in-game born, in-game pre made or created in CAS. You will need the sim you chose throughout the whole contest though :) .
jewaukeela - Sorry to hear that, know how annoying it is, I wanted to enter your contest but was only Sims 3 at the time.
26th Oct 2009, 11:16 AM
I need another judge and at least two emergency judges, anyone interested?
26th Oct 2009, 10:02 PM
Yeah, I'll be a judge. :D
26th Oct 2009, 10:05 PM
This sounds like great fun and really original, I'd love to be part of it but unfortunately I won't be available over the weekend around 20 Nov. Since you know in advance would I still be able to be an emergency judge?

Emily Astroman - Toddler
When she was very young, Emily Astroman thought it was normal to be transparent. After all, she was transparent, her twin sister Dana was transparent, and her father was transparent. Her older brother and her mom seemed to be the odd ones out.
She was always an extraordinarily bright child, and not just because she had a tendency to glow in the dark.
She was also very curious, in more way than one.
Above all, Emily has always been daddy's girl.
27th Oct 2009, 02:05 AM
Wow hyghtyme I love your app, and I love the bit about her 'being bright but not because she had the tendency to glow in the dark' hehe, great start to the contest!
27th Oct 2009, 03:32 AM
I want to enter, but I won't be able to do anything until late tomorrow night. My hubby is getting a tooth pulled tomorrow morning so when I get home tonight I gotta get to bed as early as possible.
27th Oct 2009, 03:35 PM
Thats ok wndy26 , Apps aren't due in for another 72 hours :) .
27th Oct 2009, 06:49 PM
Lou~I am sorry, something has happened to my main computer, and I will not be able to enter :( . I am unable to finish Sisaly's contest as well :( . I have a laptop but it can't run TS3.
27th Oct 2009, 07:59 PM
Oh damn :( was looking forward to seeing your app. So sorry to hear that.
29th Oct 2009, 01:53 AM
Argh, I have a horrible feeling this contest is going to be closed through little interest :( shuch a shame I was looking very forward to it.
29th Oct 2009, 07:57 AM
I hope its ok that I added frames to my photos. If not, let me know, I still have the originals and can replace them.
Shaunte is 9 months old and the only child in her family. She is growing up in a non-traditional home - living with her dad, Clay Samuels. Shaunte's mother died shortly after giving birth and meeting her daughter for the first time.
Free Shot 1
The last nine months have been difficult for both Shaunte and her father but they are adjusting. Clay is still trying to figure out how to be a good dad and keep his music career moving. Life has fallen into a fairly steady routine which makes missing his wife slightly less painful.
While Clay is writing songs and playing the guitar, Shaunte listens intently and plays her own music. She enjoys hammering on her xylophone daily while daddy works. For Clay, he is excited that his daughter is interested in music too. It gives them an extra special bond, not to mention he has actually gotten a few rhythmic sound ideas from some of the beats Shaunte has hammered out.
Free Shot 2
After a long day of working and playing, Shaunte is sleepy. These are the moments Clay loves best - cuddling his daughter and singing softly until she falls asleep in his arms.
29th Oct 2009, 05:35 PM
Gee, I have a similar problem. My power supply or my motherboard burned out. I can't run TS3 on my laptop either.
Very sorry Lou, I've been waiting for a Sims 3 contest too, and my stupid pc breaks down on me.
Goodluck Lou. Remember, you don't have to have 10 contestants.
30th Oct 2009, 12:00 AM
wndy26 - Frames are fine, and nice app :) .
Thanks Sisaly :) , think I need a bit of help with running a contest, wasn't aware you didn't need 10 contestants lol, how to I go about extending applications?
30th Oct 2009, 05:18 PM
I think this contest is going to have to close. I'm getting very little interest in it and I don't think extending the application round is going to make any difference :( . Such a shame because I thought this contest would have been a great one once people got into it and to the adult round.
30th Oct 2009, 07:45 PM
Aww... :cry: I was just going to apply. I made a whole family out of scratch. Well, *sniff* we went through a lot... a crash even before my poor simmies made it past the housing stage... *sniff* It wasn't meant to be. :(
Sorry 'bout your contest. I wish there was more interest. :llama:
30th Oct 2009, 07:52 PM
I know, I was looking sooo forward to see the teen/adult rounds :( . Beeps said I can put the contest up again at a later date when there is more interest in contests. So may leave it until January time.
Sorry to say but I'm having this closed now :( .
