Join us for this month's post-apocolypic theme

Each month brings a new challenge and everyone can join in.  We will use your contributions in our next monthly magazine that will be released in May. 



About the theme - Post-Apocolypse

How do you envision life after the "end of the world"? The idea of a post-apocolypic or dystopia society is a popular topic in everything from books to movies to video games. Look no further than Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, The Hunger Games, Divergent, Mad Max (who we stole the theme title from), Waterworld, Blade Runner, the video game Fallout, and the TV shows Defiance, Firefly and believe it or not, Adventure Time.

Do you picture a world reborn, or one trying to hold onto their old ways? Are they flourishing, thriving, or struggling to survive? Was the change for the good of humanity, or the begining of the end?


What can you contribute?
  • advertisements related to the theme (ads for sims, cc, makeup, your sims series story or machinima, costumes etc.) They can be for your own creations, mock ads for something from our sims games, or for your favourite cc creator. We always like to have fun ads in our magazines.
  • stories 
  • photography of course
  • custom content - clothing, objects
  • custom poses or animations (adult/rated R will not be accepted)
  • a build or a lot 
  • tips or tutorials
  • anything you can think of


Who should join?

YOU! EVERYONE! We want to see a variety of Sims 2, 3 and 4.


How do you join?

Just do your creative thing and share it here in this thread. If you are adding images then be sure to post them into our gallery HERE so that we don't miss them, but then share that image here in this thread so followers don't miss it. In other cases you can just share the link here to your submission.


TIP - if you create and submit CC we do recommend creating an ad for it - you can get details HERE


HOW TO ADD PHOTOS to the thread - add the image to the gallery first, then open up the gallery to the full size images. Right click on your image and click "copy image url" or whatever your browser says for that option. Then, come back here and in the reply box you can see the little blue image on the tool bar, that is supposed to be a photo - click that and add the image url to the popup box and voila, your image will show.


DEADLINE Friday, May 15th


ADDENDUM about COVER PHOTOS for the MAGAZINE

Each month I try to select a cover shot randomly. I am always hoping to use something from a different person, but often it is a photo submitted by staff that ends up working. I don't want this to seem unfair. I really DO want to select a variety of contributor's photos, so here is what we look for. Try something like this for a chance to be on the cover. And look back at past covers to see what works. 

The image must...

be top quality graphically, high resolution

most of the picture/subject must be in the centre

must be able to fit words around the image

Thanks Sylent... and yours are AWESOME!  I love how you created the fall out shelter look.  Sims 4 has great CCs now days :)  I wanted to repost my one photo of Zoey and Marz because of his necklace but too late now so I'll just keep it as is since I have another idea for later of them and we all know of this problem with sims and clothes and jewelry.
