TSR begrüßt confide

Wir freuen uns confide als neue Hervorragende Designerin willkommen zu heißen. Als sehr talentierter und vielseitiger Skinner, wird sie uns sicher mit viel neuer Kleidung dieses Jahr versorgen! Vergesst nicht, ihr herzlich in ihrem Gästebuch Willkommen zu sagen.

TSR welcomes confide!

We are pleased to welcome confide among the ranks of Featured Artists. A talented and frequent skinner she will surely please many wardrobes this year! Be sure to give her a warm welcome in her guestbook!

Gratis HD Sachen

Unsere Hervorragenden Designer werden ab jetzt ein hochwertiges Set pro Monat freischalten, so dass jeder es gratis herunterladen kann. Das bedeutet, dass über 50 hochwertige Sets jeden Monat frei für Euch zugänglich sein werden. Wenn dies insgesamt einen positiven Effekt nach sich zieht, werden wir überlegen, ob wir die Menge und Drehungen erhöhen und es weiter ausbauen. Wir wünschen Euch viel Spaß mit dieser Neuerung!

Free FA content

FA's will now set 1 high quality set each to free once per month. This means over 50 high quality sets will be available for download monthly. If this has a positive effect overall we will consider increasing this amount and rotation as we develop further. Enjoy!

TSR begrüßt neue HD's

In den letzten Monaten hat sich auf TSR einiges verändert wie unter anderem das neue Rating-System und auch die Designer Ebenen sind neu strukturiert worden.
Aber vor allem haben wir eine Menge neuer Talente zu Hervorragenden Designern ernannt, die wir euch auf der deutschen Version von TSR natürlich nicht vorenthalten wollen. So auch aikea_guinea mit ihrem speziellen und außergewöhnlichen Stil. Für neuen modernen Schwung in eueren Häusern sorgen Norbi_N, Linegud und Simtomatic. Wenn ihr lieber den ägyptischen Stil bevorzugt, dann schaut mal bei Atwa vorbei. Die neuesten Stars und Sternchen bringt euch Jirka ins Spiel und Forwardmotion, Lianaa und Sims2Sisters erstellen dafür die passende Haute Couture. Das passende Make-Up könnt ihr bei IcedMango finden. 
Auch für neue Immobilien ist gesorgt, diese könnt ihr euch auf den Seiten von Tigerblue und Madisim herunterladen. Und zu guter Letzt haben wir mit Evi natürlich auch an die Kleinen gedacht :)

Sims 2 on Windows Vista

Like me, you might be thinking of upgrading from XP to Vista. If you are, here's an article explaining the process to put your mind at rest about whether or not Sims 2 will work! To the article...

Fansites index updated

We have improved on our fansites tracker to ensure that it will always list active fansites. In order to do this this we had to reset everyones hit counters so starting from today all sites start from zero. Inactive fansites will automatically be removed from the list and the position in the list is now based on the average hits per day.

New Challenges Published.

2 new Challenges have been added today, fairly short and reasonably easy, but should be fun to play! I have some more challenging Pets ideas planned, so expect the next to be harder. Check out TSR Challenges today!

Introduction:
Kitty Litter loves animals and enjoys nothing more than playing with her furry friends. Have Kitty gain 10 Pet Friends to win this purrrfect Pets Challenge. Quick and easy!

Introduction:
Alvin D'Lottery is broke. Help him live the 'Rags to Riches' fairytale and rise to the Challenge of earning §100,000. Not an overly difficult Challenge, but needs some planning!

TSR welcomes aikea_guinea!

We are happy to announce aikea_guinea as our next featured Artist. Her special style has been a hit since she first started out here and we look forward to many more creations! Give her a warm welcome in her guestbook!

TSR Previews "Sims 2 Stories"

Recently I was lucky enough to go to EA in California once again, to get hands on with the upcoming 'Sims 2 Stories' addition to the franchise. Now that the media restrictions are lifted I can now publish my preview of the game, which might help you decide whether Stories will be for you or not. Go to the Stories Preview for all the details.

2 new staff positions at TSR.

We are pleased to announce 2 new staff positions: Artist Managers (AM). Those two persons will work as a source of communication between artists here on TSR, and us the developers. Our ambition is to make sure we have the smoothest possible communication with everyone who create here. This includes getting proper bug reports, feature requests and general thoughts and improvements about the way our site works.

The key role for them will be to provide proper follow-ups to your issues, rather then bug reports and ideas getting lost in the forums or the support system. Once something has been reported (either through direct e-mail to them, found in the forums etc), it will be provided to us and we will make a time estimate (if possible) which will then be reported back to you. A new support system where you can track progress of your issues, regardless of it's type (bug, feature etc) is in development and will be presented in January.

So, without further due, it is with great pleasure I announce the following new members of our staff:

- Atwa, who will be responsible for all artists except Featured Artists. She will begin her new role in January and a contact e-mail will then be provided.
- Cyclonesue, who will be responsible for all Featured Artists. She will also begin her new role in January.

More information and guidelines will be presented when the new support system is introduced.

TSR welcomes Fresh-prince!

This is their new home on the net and you can look forward to a lot of their old and constantly new content here with us. We ask you to give them a warm welcome in their guestbook!

TSR launches Challenges!

After weeks of design, creation and testing, TSR is ready to launch our newest feature... Challenges are here!

Free Content Changes & Updates.

The Sims community is constantly changing, and TSR tries to adapt accordingly. To be able to provide the size of site and level of service that we do, we have made some pretty drastic changes in the past, and today sees another!

As Sims 1 becomes a retro game for many of us, many more new players are appearing, thanks to the recently released Sims 1 Ultimate Collection at budget price. Christmas at TSR has come early for these players!

Why the change?

Although many people have their own opinions on subscription sites, TSR has always tried to provide as much free content as possible, while maintaining a delicate balance with keeping the site running with fast, stable servers and great community features for anyone playing the game. We were way behind other sites going to subscription models because we had more traffic, but the internet advertising market crashed and forced our hands somewhat.

Now that things are picking up in that area, we feel more confident that we can provide more for free users that generate their contribution to the site through viewing ads.

Sims 1 Free Content Changes

Sims 1 content is now all free, and will hopefully remain that way forever! We will continue to update with regular submissions from our Featured Artists as well as the Sim1 community, so that area of the site will become a great future resource for retro-gamers or new players picking up the "Sims 1 Ultimate Collection" this Winter.

If you have a Sim 1 site that is growing old or likely to close soon, why not move your content to TSR and feature it all from your own Mini Site. It will join the rest of our archive of over 91,000 free files, which dates back to creations publish long before the game released!

Sims 2 Free Content Changes

Sims 2 content also sees a major change, with all user submitted content becoming free! Featured Artist content will remain exclusive to Subscribers, as will the Download Basket and Wizard, but with today's numbers, around 173,000 Sims 2 files will be free to use.

If you have creations on your own site (or others), why not submit it to TSR so that it joins our long-standing archive and remains available for free download for many years to come? It will build up your profile or Mini Site and will earn you Kudos too!

Incentive Days

Many members have been earning Incentive Days from having their creations downloaded by Subscribers. These were implemented to allow submitters to share their work with their peers, fellow content creators. Due to the change to free for all of their content, the need to earn Incentive Days has been made redundant, especially as free subscriber days can be earned through Kudos.

To balance this, submitting creations will now earn a little more Kudos than before for most creators. Any existing Incentive Days earned by our members will remain valid, so you can still use them when you like.

Already Subscribed?

Our current subscribers will continue to have full access to all of the files at the site including those from Featured Artists, as well as the Download Basket and Install Wizard. If you feel that TSR provides you with a great experience we would encourage you to continue to subscribe, not just to get all the great FA content, but to support us in what we do and help us keep TSR running for many years to come. We will not be adding a so called “donation system” to get exclusive content, but we hope to introduce one time payments for content at the site. These, along with a one-off 2 month subscription would not only help us greatly, but will provide you with a lot of top quality content for your money (still far more than any other Sims site can offer).

If you have subscribed for Sims 1 content only, then your situation is a little different. Although we have made the content free from today, we continue to provide the service which you have paid for, but we are prepared to compensate where necessary.

If you have subscribed within the past 4 weeks from today (19/10/2006) then we will be prepared to compensate you with one half of your subscription (only if you downloaded only Sims 1 content during this time). If you wish to make this claim, please use the Support System and explain your situation clearly. We will then check your download history, and if you have used your subscription for Sims 1 downloads only we will process it.

That said, if you are happy with your experience of TSR and wish to continue supporting us, we would gratefully accept your donation and any continued support that you can offer.

And for our current Subscribers...

We value your continued support greatly, as you have kept TSR running for the entire community for many years. Our current Subscribers are being credited with a free week to compensate them for the downtime and problems that have been experienced while we have been updating the servers and systems at the site. We know, it got quite ugly!

Subscribers now get access to their own dedicated servers for the downloads and images, so they should now experience a faster, smother web experience all 'round.

Forums upgrade next week

We have upgraded the forums to vBulletin Version 3.6.2 but got delayed on its release because of all the server changes this week. Now that we have this launch behind us we will continue to add some extra features to them before launching the new forums next week. Stay tuned for an update.

We hope that you all enjoy the new and improved TSR!

Pet's submissions are open!

If you have created a unique breed, why not share it with other players though our Pets Database?

Please stick to unique creations though, and not every mutt and half breed that you randomly create in the game. As much fun as that it, we want to keep the database clear for unique breeds and exciting creations!

Submit your work here!

New Artist Level: Select!

In order to reward more artists with Mini Sites, and to showcase even more quality creators, we are adding a new level of Artist to sit snugly between Submitters and Featured Artists.

We call them... Select Artists!

You can use the new filters to find these creators from the downloads pages. More Select Artists will be announced next week!

TSR welcomes Icedmango!

We are happy to announce IcedMango as our next Featured Artist. She's a well known makeup and skintone artist and we look forward to share her creations with you here at TSR. Give her a warm welcome in her guestbook!
