Showcase your Elder Sim(s) and what they are passionate about with fashion.

Create at least one Elder Sim. You may create additional Sims in this household, but the Elder Sim(s) will be the main focus.
Using the Everyday outfit category, style your Elder(s) to communicate a special hobby or an activity that they enjoy (DJing, snorkeling, jungle exploring, etc.).
Imagine something truly unique and outside the box for Elders!



Additionally:

DLC not required
No Simoleon (ยง) limit
Full edit cheat (cas.fulleditmode) and Unlockable CAS Content allowed
Custom Content (CC), custom thumbnails, poses, and mods are not allowed (Stylist, Builder)

Can I submit more than one creation?

Yes, you can submit more than one creation.

Can I submit a Creation for each way to play (Stylist, Builder, Storyteller)?

Yes!

Why are the challenges broken down into Stylist, Builder, and Storyteller?

The Sims™ 4 can be played in a plethora of ways, so to allow Simmers to jump right into each challenge theme with a clear objective, we've broken things down into these three main ways to play.

I completed two (or all three) of the challenges for this theme. They work together. How can I submit them together?

While you can add a #hashtag that links multiple creations, at this time, there is no benefit to submitting linked items, as each submission will be individually evaluated. You should submit your creations for each challenge you would like to enter.

How long do I have to upload my creation?

The submission period for each challenge will typically be around two weeks. You can find the specific start and end dates on each challenge page.

What if I want to withdraw my submission?

All of your creations can be found in the MyLibrary tab of The Gallery. You can withdraw any of your submissions by opening up their detail panel and choosing the “unsubmit” button located in the bottom left.
If I submit a creation, could I appear as a contestant on the Spark’d show?

Yes! If you are chosen as a Spark'd Challenges Top Spark'd Creator, you may be spotlighted on this site, and in addition, you’ll be added to a pool of potential contestants to interview for a future season of Spark’d.

If I am a Top Spark'd Creator and I am selected for the Spark’d show, am I obligated to be on the Spark’d show?

Nope! There’s no pressure for you to be a contestant on the show.

How do I explain my creation to the judges if I feel it needs context for someone to fully understand it?

As a Builder or Stylist, the description field is available for you to write down anything you wish to convey in English. We recommend that your submission speaks for itself, though. As a Storyteller, that’s the challenge.

Do I win anything? / What do I win? / Are there winners?

Those selected as a Top Spark'd Creator will be spotlighted on www.thesims.com/challenge after each challenge has concluded in its entirety. (For Destination Wedding, that will be August 31, 2020.) In addition, you’ll be added to a pool of potential contestants to interview for a future season of The Sims™ Spark’d. These challenges are also meant to be a fun new way for players to focus their efforts while playing.

How do I vote? How does voting work?

To let your voice be heard, simply head in game, navigate to the Gallery, and then tab over to the Challenge Gallery and start favoriting creations by pressing the heart icon. You can favorite as many creations as you like. After the voting period ends, the top 100 Creations with the highest number of hearts will then be judged by EA judges who regularly play The Sims™ 4, using a judging rubric set forth here to determine the Top Spark’d Creators.

Someone is using my submission as their creation. What should I do?

Report their content via the Plagiarism report flag and provide information about the item being plagiarized.

I noticed some people use custom thumbnails for their content. Are we allowed to do so?

To ensure a level playing field across PC and Console Creations, the use of custom thumbnails, poses, custom content and mods are not permitted.

Am I allowed to use mods to help me build (such as TOOL or the Red Shelf mod?)

To ensure a level playing field across PC and Console Creations, the use of custom thumbnails, poses, custom content and mods are not permitted.

Can I use real-life inspiration for my Creations?

Originality is always ideal. Allusions and parodies are welcome, but we won’t be able to consider those with copyright violations. We have more rules around third party IPs in Official Rules.

Can I use cheat codes?

The following cheat codes are acceptable to use when stated in the challenge rules:

• Money

You must be currently playing a household in order to apply money cheats to that household.

money # = (# represents the amount of money you would like reflected in your household)

Motherlode = adds 50,000 Simoleons

rosebud = adds 1,000 Simoleons

freerealestate on = houses are free

• Build Mode

bb.moveobjects on = You can merge objects together and place them wherever you wish

[ and ] = The left bracket enlarges an item and the right one shrinks it

9 and 0 = You can raise and lower objects using the 9 or 0 keys

bb.showhiddenobjects = More items visible

Bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement = Unlock Build items that are locked by default

bb.showliveeditobjects = Liberated environment objects

• CAS Mode

cas.fulleditmode = Fully edit a Sim after creating

bb.moveobjects on = You can merge objects together and place them wherever you wish

How do I use them?

Step 1: Open up the game.

Step 2: To open the text field at the top of your screen, type CTRL + SHIFT + C on PC. Hold down all four triggers at the same time on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.

Step 3: In the text field, type testingcheats true and hit enter.

If you’re having trouble, type cheats while the game is in Live mode with an active household.

Stylist
Are we expected to modify all outfits for our submissions?

No, and in fact, you should probably only modify the Everyday outfit, as that is the way the content is viewed within the Gallery. If a challenge requires multiple outfits on a Sim, we'll be sure to say so in the challenge guidelines.

Can I use any Expansion, Game, or Stuff Packs when creating my household?

Typically, yes. But be sure to read the Challenge Guidelines for each individual challenge for any specific requirements.

The Stylist
Stylist challenges center around CAS mode and Sims creation, fashion, and styling. Channel your inner fashion guru! Emphasis is on the way you bring the challenge theme to life through the styling and character design of your Sims. Remember, you can submit as many unique Creations as you like and can even submit Builder and Storyteller Creations.


The Builder

Builder challenges center around Build mode and lot creation. Share how you think inside and outside the box. Emphasis is on the interior and exterior of the build itself, landscaping, and creative use of challenge-related materials. Remember, you can submit as many unique creations as you like and can even submit Stylist and Storyteller creations.

The Storyteller
Storyteller challenges center around Live mode and bringing stories to life through The Sims™ 4. Emphasis is on creating a narrative, using Sims and a build to weave together a compelling story that includes a beginning, middle, and end. How you tell the story is totally up to you! Don’t stress about the production values, though. We care more about the quality of your story than your video editing skills. Remember, you can submit as many unique Creations as you like and can even submit Stylist and Builder Creations.

Holy cow! Made me tired just reading all that. giggle A decade ago, I'd have been all for it.
Is anyone here going to do the challenge? Are we going to get to view the creation and read any story?
When I viewed the video of the groups of Simmers who were in a challenge where they had to create a Sim, design and build a house, and do a story line, I thought it all very creatively challenging but I knew I wasn't up to that kind of thing anymore. Sad but true. Sad

But I really hope Some CC members do it! thumbs up
