Sims 4 Sims and Pets Submission Guidelines

1. External Custom Content

  • No more than 8 external Custom Content Items can be used and this includes hair and skin. By External we mean Custom Content not on The Sims Resource. You may not place links to Non-PG-13 sites. Make sure the Skins you are linking are not on a page with anatomically correct naked sims.
  • All external links MUST be included directly to the download page (Not directly to the download link, but to the page it can be found), Not just the website, and proper credit given to the creators. Do not link to non-PG-13 websites. This includes but is not limited to: Nudity, guns, converted content, bad language. YOU MUST LIST EXTERNAL LINKS FOR ANYTHING ON THE SIM YOU HAVE PICTURED. We do not accept links to paysites.
  • All CC links, including TSR pictured, must be listedYou must list the links in the required items tabs provided to you in submissions. Do not place Mediafire direct links or links of that type. You cannot list sets. Each package file must be listed separetly.
  • Any reports of Sims not having the required content will get one chance to fix the offense. If it's reported a second time, we will permanently unpublish the Sim.
  • Items that are converted or retextured are considered stolen content and an automatic rejection reason. If you upload your Sim using this sort of content and it's reported, then your Sim will permanently be unpublished.
  • Do not link to sites that are not the original creator's website. (Sims 4 finds, Sims 4 uploads) as these will not be accepted. You must link to the original creator's upload and website.
  • We no longer accept links to adfly or other malicious content. Any links that lead to malware will be rejected.
  • We do not accept links for content that has to be paid for. This is because our testers cannot afford to pay for content. We will get a missing object warning without the content and then it cannot be tested.
  • We do not accept links that lead to or are from Simsdom 
  • We do not accept links from any site that is a paysite, any links that lead to malware, or any links not accessible by the entire world or that are blocked off from certain countries.

2. No Custom Content used

  • We will accept Sims made with no CC. However, and this is most important, we must feel that there was some effort made to make a Sim and that it was not just generated randomly in CAS. It must be a Sim that was worked on and shows some creativeness.
  • You must state in your description if you have No Custom Content pictured and no skins or have used no sliders. Anything represented in your Screen Shot that is included on the sim MUST be listed. If you have used sliders for your sim this is NOT to be instructed as optional. The sliders will be required for the downloader to get the pictured sim.
  • If you have used no External CC then you need to state that as well in the Sim Description.

3. Previews

  • An In-Game preview, not in CAS, must be included in the upload. This means an un-photoshopped preview in-game of how the Sim looks.
  • You must include an up-close picture of the face of the sim for your first preview.
  • Celebrity Sims MUST include a picture of the RL Celebrity and have a decent resemblance to that celebrity.
  • Sim pictured, including clothing, MUST be the Sim that is representative of what the downloader will get in-game.
  • Sims must be pictured and made PG-13.

4. Screen Size

  • Main Screenshot must be within the guidelines of the 4:3 ratio good example being 800×600 Pixels. The largest will be 1024×768 pixels.

5. Important General Rules

  • Continual reports of Sims not being as represented for the downloader, missing links, or any of the above requirements may get you banned from Submitting Sims in the future.
  • We only accept one sim per day and 3 sims per week. We do not accept households.
  • You MUST list all EP's and SP's you have INSTALLED, not only what you used
  • We do not allow zipped files with included content for sims. You must list every link to every CC you have used. If you have used none state No CC
  • All Sims coming through Submissions will be tested before approval. Testers will test to make sure the Sim is as pictured. Please take this into consideration before submitting a Sim.
  • DO NOT tell the downloaders they do not need things in your picture or that they do not need EP, SP, or GP's you have installed. They do need them to get the sim pictured.
  • We cannot accept any creations that have CC included that are not flagged to be CC. This causes the CC to stick to your creation and may be passed to other people's games who may not want the content. If you wish to use CC in your creation then it must be a separate download with a correct link attached in the notes section of your description.
  • All Sims must be built before export from the game.
  • Because most of our users are not modders we do not accept any altering characteristics on sims such as added slots, mods to make the creation work, etc.
  • We do not accept merged content
  • We do not accept HTML in the notes. TSR has provided a form in your submission for you to add links.
