THIS CYCLE IS NOW CLOSED.

The Dark Angel has come for your soul.  Will you give in for one night

and indulge the deepest darkest part of you?  Please do!!

Mwuahahahaha!!!


Once again, the Dark Side Challenge is back!  The theme, of course is Halloween.  You can go dark and gothic, ghostly and horror inspiring, haunted houses and creaky floorboards or maybe for those who take Halloween a little less serious we will be pleased to see pumpkins, hayrides, costumes, and candycorns.  Whatever Halloween may inspire in you, we want to see your creativity! 


There are three categories which will invite photographers, machinima directors and story-tellers.  This is one of the few challenges that opens the door to all three categories at once.  So don't miss the fun, accept the Dark Angel's request and say YES!

@Smoky, lovely photo of the faes.  The lighting is awesome and you got them into the tree, that must have taken some clever maneuvering. 


@Min, yes, you must submit something for this!


@ELSing, I look forward to your entry!

i got a question do you use pictures for story telling?, i know it's a dumb question - goes and hides in a corner or something-  but i really suck at taking pictures and i don't have the right tools to make my sim stay in one spot so i can move them around and stuff like that, i wanna join but i am not that great at picture taking!

@Rosefire, it's okay to ask questions don't feel bad.  To answer your question, yes stories will need to have photos.  Here's a tip for keeping your sims under control, have your sim do an action, pause the game on the action you want to capture.  Then use the cheat: moveobjects on.  Go to buy mode and select the hand tool, you will be able to grab onto your sim and move him/her around to any location.  After you have put the sim in the right spot, go back to play mode and take your photo.  This is all done on pause so your sim can't move or get distracted. 


I hope that will help.  If you need further help, please ask or PM me.  :)

Rosefire and anyone else new here or new to Sims photography.

Publications - check these out. There are Shutterbugs magazines dedicated specifically to photography, but there are also tips in each edition of Simatography magazine.

Tips and Tricks and Camera Mode Basics - I am directing you to another site I write for. I hope you can reach this link. I don't know why we don't have this here. I guess I'll have to fix that huh?

This looks awesome! :) But if I understand right, please correct me if I'm wrong; You create what you had in mind, as long as the halloween, then you upload it, then you post a link in this forum, so you can go and check it out?

It is every thought, every action great and small, that brings the world closer to salvation or ruin.

Hi Chosomoko, for photos, you upload the photos to the official album which is linked above.  And also post the pics here in this thread.  For machinima, submit the vid to our video gallery and then provide a link.  For stories, you must upload to your blog or where ever you want to host your story, then post a link in this thread.  Hope that helps.  I look forward to seeing what you come up with.  :)
