TSRAA rules updated

The rules and information about the TSRAA (TSR Artist Alliance) has been updated to reflect the recent changes in lot submission policy. If you feel uncertain make sure you read up on this page!

Changes to lot submissions

We are going to give this a trial period of a couple of months to see how it pans out. Effectively immediately you may use TSRAA marked creations from our FA's in your lots uploaded to TSR, without them being locked away as subscriber only.

We will not publish houses that are filled with FA creations and just rushed together without any real houseplan. Our ambition here is that you should have more options to choose from when planning your house here at TSR and not having to resort to other sites. Check the list of TSRAA artists here or go into the file archives and choose to filter by TSRAA creations only.

Note: Make sure you check items individually since not all TSRAA artists have all their items marked as such!

Feedback is welcome!

Member Survey

Help us to learn about our member habits and interests regarding The Sims Resource by taking part in our latest survey. You will earn some Kudos points and will be entered in a prize draw to win one of 6 prizes including Sims 2 Expansion Packs and TSR Subscriptions. We would very much appreciate a couple of minutes of your time to help us improve the site as we develop version 7! Go to the Survey.

Note: For those wishing to debate this survey, feel free to do so in the forums where it can be properly moderated. Thank you.

4 New Challenges!

I took some time out these past couple of weeks to bundle some challenges together that had been submitted. Sorry to those that have sent me suggestions, ideas and files, but Challenges are time consuming to set up, and we have many projects on the go at the moment.
So today I have posted a little challenge I put together while testing the new Free Time objectives, as I had received a couple of requests for more parenting Challenges. There are a couple of new things in Free Time so I put them to good use. We also have 2 new Challenges from regular submitter AnnP35803 and one from newcomer cwykes. Many thanks to them for their efforts to help you enjoy your game even more!
As before, a mix of Expansion Packs are required, but if you can't play one challenge, no matter, just play the others :-) Check out TSR Challenges for the latest additions.

Forums are NOT down

Updated The problem has been solved, and the forums work again.

We have a hardware failure on the forum server and it will be down for some time today while we replace the harddrives and do various other hardware fixes. Thank you for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience!

Kudos Lottery Draw

Our 10th Kudos Lottery Draw took place today with 3 winners being Nannie who wins a Sims 2 Expansion and a Stuff Pack, JessesGirl who wins a 2 month TSR subscription, and simscrazy who gets to drink coffee from a new and improved, TSR Mug!

Thanks to everyone that bought a ticket (or many tickets), and you'll be pleased to know that a new Kudos Lottery has already been posted for you to spend some of your hard earned Kudos points on. The main prize there is a choice of any Expansion Pack and any Stuff Pack. You can buy as many tickets as you like for each draw, so have a go today!

Improved search and filters

In addition to improvements in the free text search which we launched last week (unannounced though), we have today also launched an overhaul of the filter area. The attribute search that you even earlier (for some categories, most notable Lots) could find by clicking "Advanced search options" has now been integrated with the other filters allowing them to be combined, which they couldn't before. The attribute filter can now also be combined with the free text search.

One important addition to the filters for Residential Lots is a way to sort out lots within a certain price range.

The free text search supports quotes (") and + to tune your searches.

Follow the links below to see how the filters and free text search can be used:

1. Find all traditional Starter homes (price range 0-20000) with 3 bedrooms. Click here.

2. Find all exclusive (=expensive) fully furnished Residential Lots created by our featured artists, with the word "chateau" in the title or description, ordered with the most downloaded first. Click here

3. Find all FREE clothes matching "red dress" and/or "blue dress". Click here

4. Find all FREE clothes matching "red dress" AND "scarf". Click here

We hope you find the improvements useful.

TSR (re-)welcomes MsBarrows!

We are very happy to welcome a previous Featured Artist back to the FA team. MsBarrows is a veteran artist who has been with us for a long time. She has recently decided to spend more time creating and would like to do so as a Featured Artist. Given her quality and unique creations we couldn't agree more! So please welcome her back in her guestbook!

Changes in Sims 1 submission process

The process for submitting your Sims 1 creations have now changed. Instead of sending your creations by e-mail to us, you can now upload them yourself from the Submission Area (previously used only for sims 2 submissions). Click the link "Submit Sims 2 & Sims 1 creations" under the Submit tab in the menu to get there.

Sims 1 submissions are only open for members who already have Sims 1 creations published on TSR. New Sims 1 creators should still use the procedure described on the Sims 1 submissions page.

Welcome back offer

After recently changing our pricing policy into Euros and listening to member feedback, we have decided to offer a 30% discount on subscriptions for returning subscribers to welcome them back to TSR. If you would like to take up the offer then head over to the subscriptions page which should recognise you and show your discounted price (Offer valid until the end of April). Current subscribers can also take advantage of this offer by topping up their existing days. Just our way of thanking our customers for their continued support :-)

Select Artist News!

Once again we have removed some inactive Select Artists and a couple more have chosen to retire to make room for new additions. We are very happy to welcome the following artists to the group: Aleeza, kyna987 and Maaak. A group of very talented artists - be sure to give them a warm welcome!

Euro Payment Changes

The Sims Resource is based in Sweden, Europe. Up until now our prices have been based on dollars due to our predominant US market. After a recent review of the way we work, we need to make a change to the way that we price our subscriptions and manage our business. For European visitors this will make little or no difference, but for US, Canadian and other visitors with currencies outside the Euro, you will be affected.

As of today our price plans are now in Euros and payment will be taken at the fixed Euro rate advertised. We will continue to show the price in US$ on the signup page for your convenience but this will be based on real-time exchange rates. Subscribers in currencies outside of the Euro will not be charged VAT which in Sweden is currently 25%. This amount will be deducted from the posted Euro price if paying in your own currency.

Existing subscriptions (which are an agreement between subscribers and PayPal) will not be affected, they will continue at the rate they signed up to.

Not seeing the interface?

Fear not! We've spent this week doing a major optimization to the site. Now the entire interface and icons is made up of a total of 4 different images. In order for those to show (and the site to show properly) you may need to do a deep refresh (shift + reload or ctrl + reload depending on browser). This also means the site will load faster now that most of the images are already loaded on each and every page (except the preview images of course). Enjoy! :)

Select Artist winners!

Well done everyone, keep up the fantastic work! Contact Thomas through PM for details regarding the gift certificate. The winners for February are as follows:

1. A $50 Amazon gift certificate goes to foxysensei
2. A $40 Amazon gift certificate goes to srgmls23
3. A $30 Amazon gift certificate goes to Strawbz

Update in kudos scores

Many of you will notice your kudos score has lowered today. Don't worry - the removed points were from the Gold, Silver or Bronze awards and could not be used to purchase anything. So overall you have not lost anything that you could have used. Hope this clears up any confusion!
