These are the rubrics that MTS staff use for evaluating TS4 Worlds/Saves 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/Sims_4_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/Sims_4_Lots_and_Houses). For future worlds, you may wish to post the lots in the Creator Feedback Forum (http://www.modthesims.info/f/698/) 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).

2: Some of the sims or lots are based on real places or people, but the comparison pictures are insufficient, due to size, clarity, angle etc. 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).

4: There are comparison pictures included for the sims and/or lots based on real people or places, and they are good enough that we can see the original. Thanks!

1: There is no overview picture of the neighborhood, showing the entire neighborhood from a high angle or top-down view. If it can't fit all in one pic, then it's okay to use multiple pics to show the whole thing.

5: The overview picture(s) shows the entire neighborhood layout.

1:You have not stated clearly what custom content is included and what is not. Any content that has packaged with the world must be listed as
"Included". Any content that has not packaged with the world must be
listed as "Required but Not Included".

3:Your world appears to need no custom content, though this is not entirely
clear from the text of your post. Perhaps edit your post text to
clarify?

5:You have clearly stated that your world requires no custom content. Thank you!
