TS2 Pets

Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets)

These are the rubrics that MTS staff use for evaluating TS2 Pets shared here.



The title above the post text controls the rubric's category, a number indicating its display order in the list, and its title, with no spaces between the word and the dividing | character: Category|Display Order|Title

Titles that begin with ** are rubric items that will not apply to every upload (a rabbithole does not need to be recolorable for example) and thus can be set to N/A by the moderator when evaluating an upload. Links below the title are provided to the creator along with the rubric reasons and are links to the appropriate section of the guidelines, relevant tutorials, etc.

In the post text, the numbers at the beginning of a line indicate the star rating for a particular rubric item, with a possible 1 to 5. Exactly how these numbers are used will vary based on the type of rubric item... Is it a "was it done right? yes or no?" type evaluation which would have only 1 or 5 as options? Or a matter of quality that will be more of a sliding scale including 1, 2, 3, 4, 5? Or something else?

A dividing | character can be given at the end of any one of the 1-5 star items to give a link that is relevant to that item.

1: This pet is a little unique, but needs significant changes to their sculpt and/or coat in order to stand out from the default breeds.

2: 1. The other content does not meet the objects guidelines fully. This can be missing polycount or a problem with the object itself. Please read the Creator Guidelines - New Meshes (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Meshes) if you have made a new mesh/meshes or the Creator Guidelines - Object Recolors (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Object_Recolours) if you have made recolors of an in game mesh or custom mesh. Please check the moderator notes on this section.

1:The upload is not packaged as a .sims2pack. See the instructions on the Pets Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets#Files) to properly package the pet as a .sims2pack file.

1:The upload is packaged as a .sims2pack file, but it's of a pet living on a lot, not just the pet themselves. Pets should not be packaged on lots as this can cause major issues for people who download it and can even ruin their whole neighborhood! See the instructions on the Pets Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets#Files) to properly package the pet as a .sims2pack file.

2:In addition to the required .sims2pack file, you have also uploaded your pet as a .package. Mod The Sims only accepts pets as .sims2pack, please remove the .package.

5:The upload is packaged as a .sims2pack file, containing just the pet, in accordance with our guidelines. Thanks very much!

1:All items of custom content shown with your pet need to be properly credited. Please post a link and credit for each item of custom content shown on your pet in the text of your post. This should look something like "Collar by Simmer123: http://www.simmer123site.com/hair.html"

2:This pet is shown with custom content and you have provided some credits, but the credits are not sufficient. Every item of custom content must have a proper link and credit in the text of your post. This should look something like "Collar by Simmer123: http://www.simmer123site.com/hair.html". For sites like MTS where many users submit content, you must link to the user's profile or the upload thread - not just the site itself. Please make sure the links are clickable too!

5:You have provided a good link and credit for every item of custom content shown in your pictures. Fantastic!

1:Please include a close-up shot of this pet's face. This screenshot should be a straight-on screenshot of the pet's face, with a neutral facial expression. It must be taken in-game on a lot (not in Create-a-Sim). For full visual examples of correct required screenshots, please see the Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets).

1:There is a screenshot of your pet's face, but it is unusable for assessing the pet due to the screenshot angle and the pet's facial expression. Please take a new in-game screenshot with the pet's mouth closed, eyes open, directly facing the camera; a basic "mugshot". For full visual examples of correct required screenshots, please see the Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets).

2: There is a close-up shot of this pet's face, but it is taken in Create-a-Sim. All required screenshots need to be taken in-game, on a lot.

2: There is a close-up shot of this pet's face, but the screenshot is taken from an angle which makes it hard to see the actual sculpt/coat construction. Please take a new in-game screenshot from the pet's eye-level, and directly from the front (not at an angle). A basic "mugshot". For full visual examples of correct required screenshots, please see the Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets).

2: There is a close-up shot of this pet's face, but the pet has a facial expression which makes it hard to see the actual sculpt/coat construction. Please take a new in-game screenshot with the pet's mouth closed, eyes open, ears relaxed; a basic "mugshot". For full visual examples of correct required screenshots, please see the Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets).

4:You have included a good close-up shot of your pet's face.

5:You have included a close-up shot of your pet's face which is not only good enough that we can see the pet's face quite well, but is also very well presented. Good job!

1:A full-body screenshot is required for all pets uploaded. This screenshot should show one full side of your pet's body, with the pet standing still. It must be taken in-game on a lot (not in Create-a-Sim). For full visual examples of correct required screenshots, please see the Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets).

1:There is a screenshot of your pet's body, but it is unusable for assessing the pet due to the screenshot angle and the pet's pose. Please take a new in-game screenshot showing the pet from the side, and with a neutral pose (just standing, not running, jumping, etc). For full visual examples of correct required screenshots, please see the Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets).

2: There is a screenshot of your pet's body, but it is taken in Create-a-Sim. All required screenshots need to be taken in-game, on a lot.

2:There is a screenshot of your pet's body, but it is unusable for assessing the pet due to the screenshot angle. Please take a new in-game screenshot with the pet facing directly to one side of the picture. Make sure to take the screenshot from the same height as the pet (you'll need to be much lower than Sim-level.) For full visual examples of correct required screenshots, please see the Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets).

2:There is a screenshot of your pet's body, but it is unusable for assessing the pet because of the pet's pose. Please take a new in-game screenshot with the pet simply standing still; not running, jumping, playing, etc. For full visual examples of correct required screenshots, please see the Creator Guidelines (http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Pets).

4:You have included a good full body shot of your pet, thanks!

5:You have included an excellent full body shot of your pet which is not only good enough that we can see the pet's whole body, but it is also very well presented. Good job!

1:Please include a comparison picture of the real animal or character this pet is based on. This picture should show the body of the real animal, and (as much as possible) also show the profile of the face.

2: There is a comparison picture included, but it is unusable for assessing your sim pet. This is either due to poor picture quality (for example: blurry, too dark) or because we can't see most of the animal's body.

3:You have included an adequate comparison picture of the real animal or character your pet is based on. However, it would be helpful if you added additional comparison pictures.

4:You have included a good comparison picture of the real animal or character your pet is based on.

5:You have included an excellent comparison picture of the real animal or character your pet is based on, so that it is very easy to evaluate the likeness. Thanks!
