View Full Version : TS2 Full Neighbourhoods

These are the rubrics that MTS staff use for evaluating TS2 Full Neighbourhoods 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 (an "Other" sim is not going to need a comparison picture or be evaluated based on likeness, 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.


Note to moderators: This first post (the summary) must be maintained manually. If you delete or add a rubric item or reorder anything, please edit this first post. All edits to Common Rubrics (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=514801) requiring editing its summary must be manually updated on every single individual rubric thread. Please copy the # link to use in the summaries, not the post number, to view the individual post.

1: Most or all of the lots do not meet the Creator Guidelines for Lots and Houses (http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Lots_and_Houses).

2: Most of the lots are okay, but some have significant issues which mean they do not meet the Creator Guidelines for Lots and Houses (http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Lots_and_Houses).

3: Although some of the lots have problems, overall the lots in the neighbourhood are good and meet the Creator Guidelines for Lots and Houses (http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Lots_and_Houses). For future worlds, you may wish to post the lots in the Creator Feedback Forum (http://www.modthesims.info/forumdisplay.php?f=611) for suggestions.

4: The lots in the world are very good!

5: All of the lots in the world are excellent!

1: Some of the sims or lots are based on real places or people, but there are no comparison pictures of the originals. Please add comparison pictures which show, as applicable, the person head-on with a neutral expression, or the building from the same angle as your lot screenshot(s).

1: It looks as though you have not used empty templates before creating your neighborhood.  There are NPCs and townies present in your character files. MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Full_Neighborhoods for imformation on creating clean neighborhoods.
1: It looks as though you have default subhoods attached to your custom neighborhood.  Be sure to disable the stealth/subhoods before creating clean neighborhoods. MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Full_Neighborhoods for imformation on creating clean neighborhoods.
5: You have used clean and empty templates and your neighborhood contains no game generated townies or NPCs.

1:The world decorations don't work very well together, needing more work to create a cohesive theme that makes sense with the terrain sculpting and painting, and the world's overall style.

3:The world's decorations work pretty well, creating a fairly cohesive theme that makes sense with the world's overall style.

4:Your world is very well decorated, with a nice cohesive theme that works well with the world's overall style.

5:Your world is beautifully decorated, with an excellent theme that works very well with the world's overall style.

1:There are no scenery views included. Show at least four pictures of some of the views people will see in your world. This should be nice scenic views, taken from a lower angle (a sim's eye view, or a low player's eye view). You can of course take more than four pictures to show off all the pretty sights!

2:There are scenery views included, but these are insufficient. Make sure they are big, clear, well-lit, etc., and that there are least four pictures of some of the views people will see in your world. This should be nice scenic views, taken from a lower angle (a sim's eye view, or a low player's eye view). You can of course take more than four pictures to show off all the pretty sights!

2:There are scenery views included, but these are insufficient, as it is shown with custom sky domes and/or horizons. Make sure to include the required images (overview plus four scenery) with the games default sky and/or horizons. You can of course include scenery views using the custom sky domes and/or horizons.

3:You have included the required scenery pictures. Thanks!

5:You have included the required scenery pictures, and they really show off your world's landscape very well! Thank you!
