UPDATE: Game Mods Now Re-opened! - Restructuring of the Sims 3 Game Mods Area
Update at 2100-ish CET
Ok, the newly reorganised Game Mods section is now open! There may a few weirdnesses (such as uploads not showing correctly on profiles, upload edit screens being wrong) for a few hours while the caches catch up, so if that's the case, please be patient.
We now have a shiny new TS3 Game Mods section, all neatly organised and logical! For those of who you who are lost, confused, or nosy, the new structure is as follows:
Script & Core Mods - Mods that contain script replacements or new scripts.
-- Scripted Objects - aka object mods; new objects, with new, 100% modded features.
-- Pure Scripting Mods - "global" mods, created through a custom script, which affect gameplay generally and are not restricted to a particular object.
-- Core Mods - "global" mods which override the game's core DLLs.
Overrides - Mods that replace game resources other than the script core.
-- Tuning Mods - Mainly, but not solely, XML mods, which tweak a few values but don't add brand new functionality to the game.
-- Recategorizers & Hiders - Self-explanatory.
-- More Slot Mods - Mods to add extra slots to EA objects. This section may be expanded to include other similar things in future.
-- Camera & Lighting Mods - Also pretty self-explanatory.
-- Other Overrides
Miscellaneous - Mods that don't fit in any other category.
-- Sliders - CAS sliders.
We hope you all find the new structure easy to use and simpler to navigate. If you have any questions or problems, please let us know!
The search parameters available in game mods have changed! Please check your uploads, and fix the params if necessary.
Through the course of the day today, we're going to be restructuring the game mods section for TS3, to make it more logical - both for downloaders and for modders.
This means that over the day, the game mods will slowly disappear as we move them into super secret hidden areas, ready to be revealed anew tonight... so if something you know should be there goes missing, don't panic.
We hope that the new system will make MTS much easier and more intuitive to use for everyone. If you're used to the old system, don't worry - we'll be posting a clear explanation of what goes where in the new system once the switchover is finished.
TS2 game mods will also be restructured at some point in the near future, but we don't have dates for that as yet.
Have a great day!
