Daily Picture Event - Chat

Postby itsjulie » March 29th, 2017, 4:50 am

Daily Picture Event - Chat



At the beginning of each month a list will be posted, and every day has a different activity / theme
you basically take a photograph of your sim or sim couple, showing the activity / theme for each day.

This is a game photograph event that any sim player can take part in no matter what version of The Sims you are playing
Not every day has to be completed if you take part - but maybe you could set yourself a challenge to complete a whole month.
Photographs don't have to be posted religiously every day - when and how it suits you - so if you miss a few days you can always catch up.



This thread is for general chat and questions. Pictures should be posted in the April Daily Picture Submission thread.

I love doing these!

Not sure if it was intentional but I thought I would let you know that #12 and 19 are both Off the Ground.

I am looking forward to getting started and figuring out how to do some of these in TS4 :hmm:

Thanks Jen :duh: I hadn't noticed -
I got carried away - one was "Off the Ground" and the other should have been "On the Ground"

Ideally it would be nice - but it is entirely up to you - as long as there is a sim and the prompt in the photo it's all good!!

I will be playing with a different couple every month, but I will be keeping that couple for the whole month
April I have a family of 2 adults a toddler and a child.

Can we edit images in a photo-editor? I like adding fun effects.

Re: APRIL 2017 .. Daily Picture Event

Alright...so I need just a tiny bit of clarification. Mostly due to the fact that tomorrow when the event starts, I will only have an hour at home before 10pm. Anyway, if I post April 1st's picture on the 2nd, how would the points for that day work. Would I get just five even with two different days represented? Also it would still be eligible for the entire month bonus even if I post two days on one day, correct?

These are probably really simple and mostly explained already, but I'm just a bit of a weirdo when it comes to knowing the exact rules.

Thanks!

You get 5 points for every daily picture no matter which day you post it on - so if you post the 1st of Aprils on the 2nd of April with the 2nd of April you will still get the 10 points for the two days pictures.

and just to clear another question up that might arise .. say you post 3 pictures to cover the one prompt for one day (like a little scene) then you will only get the 5 points for that day - not 15 because you posted 3 pictures.

I think opening a separate thread for chatting and turning this thread into the submission would be a good idea. :) I'll go do that now...

Is it possible to get points for posting beforehand? For example, if I was to post all daily pictures for this week, today.
