I love badges - maybe this will entice me into making different things - I'm rather stuck in my ways with mainly doing mods - I think this might be the carrot to get me to branch out a bit. Must get that lot finished and uploaded!

Hmmmm, maybe that was the whole point?

What is a Space Pony? That is what it says under my name.

Also, if you have more than 2000 downloads, should you get another 1000 downloads icon?

I'm also a bit confused, in my accomplishments it says I am a Puppeteer, but I would have thought that I was a Plastic Surgeon as I don't manipulate my sims to walk or talk, but I do manipulate and tweak their facial features.

I feel honoured, a Spanish magazine wants to feature my Desperate Housewives and Will Smith in their feature on celebrity sims.

They work as milestones I believe, so you can only get an acomplishment once...if that makes sense..

And I thought you got the Pupperteer from uploading a Sim.

Yes, you get Puppeteer for uploading a Sim. I'm a Puppeteer, a Makeup Artist, and a Fuzzy Wuzzy! LOL. Still awaiting whether there will be an 'Achievement' for uploading mods - I'm sure it'll also be suitably silly/amusing!

I think the 'Space Pony' title means you've just passed making a certain number of posts and have reached the next level for a new title under your name. You don't get another Downloads icon until you hit 10,000.

If you click on the picture of the Puppeteer in your accomplishments so that it opens the picture up as a large version display, you will see text underneath it which tells you what it means - I just looked - it says "Created a Sim".

sgarciazzy, thats not really an accomplishment though. I mean, anybody who joined 4 years ago and posted once would get it, even if they havent' visited the site for... 4 years.

I know you don't take requests (you posted this earlier) but wouldn't it be a good idea for an accomplishment for the peopole with the highest download count?
Or woukd it not be possible because it would probably have to keep adding and taking away accomplishments?
I beleive this is something to consider

There already are icons for N downloads .. therefore, people with lots of downloads already have their "special" icon (like "3 million downloads" which is something that probably about ten people have).

Stuff for TS2 · TS3 · TS4 | Please do not PM me with technical questions – we have Create forums for that.

I'm bot sure if you understood what I meant

I meant that the person with the most amount of downloads on the site would get an acheivement along the lines of 'Most downloads on MTS!'
The perspn with the second most amount of downloads would get '2nd most downloads on MTS!' and so on for the first however many.

I hope I explained myself well!

lewjen, the person with the most downloads on MTS tends not to change much (or at all, really!). For pretty much the entire TS2 run, I believe Numenor held the title with the CEP.
#64 Old 18th Sep 2009 at 2:13 AM
Is it possible that lewjen is asking for an achievement for the person who has the most approved UPLOADs? IE, the largest number of moderater-approved download THREADS? ...or perhaps the person with the largest number of uploaded files? [Some uploaders post multiple files in a single thread; should those be counted individually, or as a single "upload"? ...and what about files uploaded as attachments to ordinary messages?]

That would make it impossible to "collect them all" especially when there are members who have been here for 5 years and have millions of downloads and hundreds of uploads. The "People" with the highest makes no sense, as there can be only one individual at a time. To single them out wouldn't be an achievement, it is an extremity, thus, it would be a title.

"200 Uploads" = Achievement
"Uploads the most" = Title

Achievements are meant to be something that anybody can get with time and effort. It is NOT meant to be something to "show off" that you have the most uploads/the highest thanks count/the most downloads, etc. Therefore, NO achievements will be added along those lines - and, incidentally, nor will titles.

In addition, we would much rather encourage people to upload 5 items which are excellently made, have clearly taken a great deal of time and effort, and are generally awesome; than 500 items which get approved because there's nothing really wrong with them.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.
#68 Old 18th Sep 2009 at 5:15 PM
I agree with all of that; I was just wondering if lewjen was trying to suggest that instead of what y`all seemed to be thinking he was suggesting, and pointing out a few difficulties with the idea.

Half of what GOD said

I was trying to suggest an idea, with the possible problems that would need to be taken into consideration.

Just to clear things up

Oh, snazzy! I'm a pupeteer... Fancy that! (: I can manipulate things *evil grin*

Only one upload is needed for each thing? So, if for example, I uploaded a hair do, a recolor of a hair do, a new chair mesh, a house, a neighbourhood, a terrian, a car and a mod... Wow. I'd have loads of thingies.

Do you getanything for dowloading lots? I download lots I'm awful at creating, I made swimming costumes with body shop for TS2 and I didn't think you'd put them on the site, so I can't really get any aceivements! Makes me feel valued that I have acheived nothing.

Or posting? Forgot to add to post above :P
If you post, say, 1000 times, do you get one? Or is it just for those talented, uploading, beautiful people?

Yes, if you post often enough your title changes.
