Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Those of us who are familiar with the bulletin board ingame (find it under decorations) know that it doesn't actually work! With this new and improved bulletin board, you, the end user, can post notes on the board by clicking on it in live mode with a Sim selected. When you read the posts with the "view posts" option, many info boxes with a picture of the Sim's face and the message will appear. This allows a user to easily keep track of what they have in mind for their Sims, especially across multiple gaming sessions.

Here are some instances in which this feature might be useful:
  • You have two married Sims; they are very ugly, and you need help to tell which is the husband and which is the wife
  • You have a particular specialization in mind for a certain Sim, one that the game doesn't mention, and you forgot which child was supposed to be an extrordinary youthful display of pedantics, and which, a whore / burnout
  • You want to take notes quickly, easily, and ingame about random things, and don't want to actually write anything on paper (note: save notes to file feature coming soon)
  • You tend to forget who did WooHoo with who and need help remembering to avoid jealousy
  • You need something to do while your Sim is sleeping / at work

Members of the family can't actually see and read the notes that you post, but they serve as a fun and entertaining way to remember projects that you are doing with your Sims, the way that you are trying to get them to behave, and the like.

Note that this object modifies the existing EAxis Cork Board to make it functional; it is no longer clutter!

Thank BaXiM for adding German string tables to the bulletin board.

I would like to know how you did this. What I have in mind is making objects to be used as adventure hooks. For example, a book in a library or book store which describes a well hidden entrance to a a dungeon/tomb.

Tolle Idee, nur ich sehe leider dort keinen Text sondern nur die Skriptbefehle.
Kannst Du es auch für die Deutsche Version von Sims 3 anpassen.

Great idea, but unfortunately I can see there is no text but only the script commands.
Can you adjust for the German version of Sims 3rd


I'm German sorry for my Bad english.

If anybody wants to make translations, please give me a modified package file or a text file with the strings. Also, include the language.

Default but does it really work?
thank you for making this.

I recently added WA expansion and have been having trouble keeping track of gems, especially since the inventories are glitchy with WA. I am looking forward to using this to help me out.

unfortuantely, it's not working for me. i installed it and another hacked object, teeg's treasure box at the same time. the bulletin board remained unchanged and the treasure chest wasn't showing up, so i copied the the resource file to the WA direactory and the d3dx9_31.dll file into the Game>Bin folder of the WA directory, and the treasure chest showed up and is working, but the bulletin board still says no interactions.

i am patched to, and don't have awesome or any other global mods at the moment.

who has tried this mod, do you have WA, and how is it working?
