Lot Submission Requirements Sims 3

1. Your picture must represent the actual lot.

Whatever is shown in your Lot previews MUST include a link to the CC used or include the CC used for publish on The Sims Resource 

2. External Links

If you use Content from external sites, you must make sure the site owner/creator allows you to include their creations on your lot. You must list the CC used in your description with links to the CC and credit to the creator. No Mediafire links are allowed. You must link to the creator's website and the page the content is on.

No more than 8 External (NOT Including TSR, EA, or EA Store Items) links are allowed to be pictured nor used in previews or otherwise provided on Lots. You may NOT place links to non-PG-13 Sites. We do not allow links to malware or adware such as adfly and various others. If malware is detected your lot will be rejected.

3. Presentation

All Lots must have a clear picture of the outside and inside of the lot. The outside front view of the lot needs to be the first picture at the top. Nighttime Screen Shots or Dark Screenshots will be rejected. Although not a requirement, it can help downloaders place your lot if you mention where you built it (ie neighborhood name, even maybe address). Also, a screenshot of the floor plan is always nice.

4. Screen size

All Pictures for lots must be in the 4:3 ratio when uploading. The smallest is 800 x 600 and the largest being 1024 x 768.

5. Photoshop

Overly photoshopped previews will be rejected. You must represent how it will look in-game to the downloader. Overly "dressed up" pictures will be rejected as well. By that, we mean too much frame, border, oversized text etc.

6. Gridlines

Do not submit Lots with Gridlines in the pictures. These will be rejected.

7. Necessary Notes and Expansion Listings

Please list all the expansion and stuff packs you have installed. You must list these even if you have not used all for the lot.

8. Testing

Please ensure that you test your lot BEFORE uploading to TSR.

9. General

  • No Sims can be included in the Lot for upload. We do not accept households for sims 3

10. Maximum Lot Size

  • Lots can be no more than 50 MB Zipped
