About the theme - Alien Nation

Take your Sims out of this world and explore the many Alien possibilities that we have available in all versions of The Sims. We have seen Aliens of such endless varieties over the years that we know this theme is a favourite. Machinimas, modelling, photoshoots and stories pop up all over the community with Aliens involved so let's see what comes to mind when you take a trip to outerspace (or when the aliens come to visit your town). 


 

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 July 17th


 

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

Wow, such amazing entries already! Love it!!!

I've got a couple to contribute. One is a video I made a year or so ago, and the other is a Sim I made for part of my Supernatural series. They're not brand new, but they fit the theme! :D

Click here for the video!

Click here for the download!

More is on the way!

Ok these are a throwback from quite a few years ago where I took Minraed and Sylent Whysper and a couple of my other Sims and made Aliens out of them.

Hi GothKittty, wow!  I love that build, it's perfect for the theme.  As for the gallery, when you upload the pic, do you wait until the thumbnail shows before you hit submit?  Sometimes, it takes a minute for it to upload completely.  (Otherwise, our host, webs.com, is glitchy at times and sometimes you just have to wait a day to retry something.)
