Listed below are the default awards we are suggesting you nominate members for this time. There are more here than we have included in previous years, this was obtained by discussion with the community and further narrowed down by staff discussion. Each category, Custom Content, City Journals and Community is broken down into three subsections, this will help you in narrowing down which sections you are most involved with. Visit the Nominations Guidelines topic on how nominating has changed this year. Nom Nom Nom... Custom Content Awards Overall STEX Community Favourite When asked who was the STEX Community Favourite, most people chose this individual. Best Development Thread This award is for the person who curates the best development thread, through either providing an insight into their own creative process, writing tutorials or just by being the best at documenting the twists and turns of creating content for the STEX. Most Useful Feedback in Custom Content Threads This award is for the person who provides great, behind the scenes support for other people's BATs. Helping out, giving valuable instruction, and doing those annoying but necessary tasks needed to bring a quality BAT to the STEX. Highest Overall Quality This award goes to the person whose creations are consistently outstanding. Best Effort In Compatibility Most clear work dedicated to avoid one custom content to break the game when used in combination with others Best Large Scale Project The scale and scope of this project is so impressive that it's taken a great amount of work to pull off. This award goes to the member who has created the best large scale project. Most Beautiful Small Addition This award goes to the member who has created a tiny yet extremely beautiful addition to the game. Best Re-creation This BAT is the best recreation of a specific, real life building, done with total devotion to complete and thorough accuracy. Most Important Discovery/Innovation It seems that some relatively small steps for Modders can lead to some pretty giant leaps for simkind. This award has been invented for the one who sits at the desk in the Mission Control of Modding. Houston, we have a Trixie! Most Inventive Creation With many different cities come many different ways which buildings or creations could adapt to their surroundings, and the only way to overcome this is to make an inventive creation to cover all bases. This member created the most inventive addition to our game. Highest Technical Achievement in Custom Creations This award goes to the individual who has pushed the boundaries of custom content beyond what we once knew, and who have shared their discoveries with the rest of the community. Most Realistic Creation This award goes to the member who has created a BAT which is extremely realistic. This is a fictional building, yet is so well detailed we could be forgiven in assuming it was a real world recreation.

Big Building of the Year Buildings come in all sizes, but this is the best skyscraper, highrise or major complex created this year.

Best Fictional Map This award goes to the best fictional map created this year. Best Automata SC4 players are in love with their automata.

This award goes to the person we miss the most and wish to hear from in the next year. Ad Hoc Awards Remember, if you don’t see the award you wanted to give someone listed above, you may create a custom "Ad Hoc" award. Create a title, and write why you are giving them the award in your description. The Admins will review all custom requests and decide if the award has enough merit to be given to that member.
  2. Award Category Ideas - Much like the Oscars, the Trixies just wouldn't be complete without The Awards themselves! Here is a thread where you can suggest what default categories you'd like to see... The Trixie Awards traditionally feature a selection of categories which can be used to submit nominations for. These have ranged from content on the STEX, creativity in the CJs, to wide-ranging contributions in the forums. With the previous 12 editions of the Trixies, the categories have been pre-defined by the admins, and the only method of suggesting different awards was by submitting a custom nomination. So starting for the 2015-2016 Trixies, prior to the start of nominations, we're opening up the suggestions to the community! Last time the Trixies were held, the categories were simplified in an attempt to make the process less overwhelming. When in actual fact, all this did was the precise opposite. There were fewer nominations per category, and less variations of each type of award. For instance with custom content and CJs, there were only more general themes, which encompassed the more niche categories. This time, by allowing you all to choose what you'd be interested in submitting nominations for, hopefully it can provide a much broader selection to choose from. This should also help with searching for possible candidates, as it will give a clearer perspective. In other words, we're asking you to nominate awards, to be used as the awards! Post Your Ideas Below You may add multiple posts with multiple ideas, or single posts with single ideas -- it's completely your choice... Just remember we're looking for the title here, for example: Best Llama Impression OR Most Likely to outrun a Llama OR Llama Dedication Award And feel free to discuss and hit the button for ideas you, hmm, well... Like. They will then be populated into the below index lists for final consideration by the Llama Crew. Similar with how it worked in 2014, there will be at least 3 types of general awards: (There could be more yet, we'll see...) Custom Content Buildings, lots, mods, maps, and their many variations. City Journals Types, styles, genres, themes, countries, presentation, etc. Community Forum awards, site contributions, members, staff, special mentions & moments, etc. At this stage, ideas don't need to be specific for a particular game or year (2015 or 2016), as most awards can be doubled up for that purpose. Also don't worry about duplicating someone's idea. That just proves it's a good one! Whether big or small, we look forward to hearing your ideas!
  3. Nominations Open March 13th - The Trixies are here, the Llamas are here, and this time we're heading back in time! It seems like an eternity since the Trixies were last held, and we can't wait to go all the way back to the start of 2015! The Trixies are a celebration of all types of community contributions, ranging from STEX uploads to CJs, all the way to forum posts. It's the perfect opportunity to celebrate all the amazing content shared over the past two years, and give a special 'thanks' to your fellow members. We last held the Trixies for the year 2014, so understandably, we have a lot to catch up on. So this year, things will be a little different. We won't be holding just one ceremony, but two at the same time: One each for 2015 and 2016. Since the previous awards were such a long time ago, there will be a prelude in the run-up to the start of nominations. Here we invite everyone to discuss content shared during 2015-2016. What were your favourites? Alongside this, we will also be posting special features, including retrospective lists of uploaded content, and interviews by some members, highlighting their experience over the last two years. The purpose of this build-up intends to help everyone make informed decisions, with a broader perspective. Not be told who to nominate, but just reminded of who could be potential nomination candidates. The Prologue Over the next 3 weeks we will be holding a series of events to celebrate the content uploaded over the past two years. This will start here in the Trixies Forum with a community discussion of memorable content which you can recall, or may otherwise be overlooked. The discussion will be complemented by retrospectives on uploaded content, where we post summaries of 2015-2016 content. There will also be interviews with members, giving their thoughts of notable contributions over the period. Community Discussion I can hardly remember what was for breakfast, let alone the memorable items some 700 days ago! So when trying to remember what happened in 2015 my mind goes blank. That's why we are hosting a way which everyone can discuss uploads, CJs, forum posts or just members in general who have shared amazing creations from the past two years. The principle behind this not to form a consensus on who or what is deserving of a Trixie. But instead, a place to discuss content we have admired over this time frame, or items which we think might be overlooked when thinking back on all the amazing creations from the past two years. Use the link below to discuss content from the past two years. Retrospective Lists We want to make sure that there is a place which you can go to find everything that has been uploaded from the past two years, specifically in 2015 which is a long way to look back through in the STEX. In the coming days we will feature a series of lists which highlight content uploaded to the STEX from each year. CJs were harder to list, so we ask that for CJ retrospectives the Community Discussion topic is the best place to remember your favourite CJ. These lists should help you find STEX uploads, and remember items which you may have forgotten about. Member Interviews There will also be a series of interviews with different members on their experience with content from the past two years as well as their involvement with Simtropolis. We've tried to interview members which we haven't interviewed before, and these range from people you will have heard of and talked to before, to some members you might have only seen in passing. These interviews will try to highlight content which they have valued from the last two years, usually focusing on areas of the site which they are involved in. These are, at times, subjective, so we ask that you don't take their opinions as definitive fact, but rather as another view on what has been uploaded in the past two years. You'll find these uploaded in this forum, where you can comment on their interviews and they may respond to comments and questions that you have. These are just opinions, and your final nominations can be of whom ever, and what ever, you feel deserving of the award. Award Category Ideas As part of the build-up, a suggestions topic will be opened for the award categories. Here we invite you all to share ideas for the various awards you'd like to see make up the default set. Last time the list was greatly simplified, and looking back, this may have actually made the process more restrictive. So now, let your imagination run wild! There are BATs, but what about styles? There are CJs, but what about variations? We can't promise all ideas will be selected, but whatever they are, we'd love to hear them. Changes to Nominations For these Trixies we are changing how to nominate members, and how many times a member can be nominated. Since the site upgrade of 2015, the old nominations system was made incompatible. So this year, things are going to be slightly different. We will expand on these changes closer to the nominations opening, but a summary of the major changes are listed below: Forum Nominations Previously nominations would be submitted via a dedicated page with a category selector and a plain text description box. But this time, nominations will be submitted in a special forum which will open at the start of the nominations. This forum behaves differently than others, in that no one else except the Admins are able to view your submissions! So post without hesitation in that forum knowing that your nominations will remain incognito. A major benefit of this method is that you are able to edit any of your posts throughout the submissions period. So as you keep remembering people to nominate, you can continue editing or adding new nominations until the closure date. While in previous Trixies you could continue submitting new nominations, this method means you see all of the nominations you have made, so it's easy to remember what/who you have or haven't nominated yet. An simple and straightforward way to stay on top of everything. So say goodbye to spreadsheets! Once the categories are finalised, we'll provide a full list so that you don't miss any awards to choose from. Of course, you may also create custom awards which aren't included in the default set. It may seem weird at first, but everything will stay private, we promise. Rule Changes This year we are making a slight change to how many times you can nominate a member. Traditionally you could only nominate any given member for one award. But this time, this rule is being expanded. It used to be that someone would only create amazing buildings, or only write beautiful CJs. However, now we have members who cover lots of different parts of the site, for the previous Trixies it was increasingly difficult to nominate them for just one award. This year we are making the change to allow you to nominate a member for up to 3 different awards. We hope that you submit multiple nominations for a single member to awards in different sections of the Trixies, but we aren't making that a specific rule as there are awards in sections which relate to very different skill sets. Use this new ability wisely… Cities: Skylines It's time to welcome the latest city-builder to our great Trixie Awards! This will be the first year C:S participates in our great ceremony. Just remember, the Trixies are a celebration of Simtropolis contributions, so only items here on the site are eligible to be nominated for an award. Understandably, there are thousands of Workshop items, so C:S content on the STEX is only a fraction of the overall selection. Considering this, Workshop items can be nominated, as long as they're created by an author who is a member here at Simtropolis. We can't wait to start sharing the love and celebrating what our community has to offer! Here's to another memorable Trixies, let the party begin!
  4. Community Build-up Discussion - 465 days and counting... It's been a long time since the previous Trixies So this is the perfect time to share and discuss notable contributions... Make no mistake, so much has happened between the ceremony of the previous Trixies. On the STEX, in CJs and throughout the forums, there have been many memorable moments. Although unless anyone regularly visits all areas of the site, keeping detailed running notes over the last 2 years, we realise it would be very tricky to remember more than a handful of items or events. With so many outstanding widespread contributions, it's so easy to lose track. Maybe even forget items which we thought were truly remarkable at the time. That's why we're starting this Community Discussion, so we can together help each other recall the various noteworthy and significant contributions. Just to clarify, the goal here is not to develop a ballot paper or set list of candidates, but instead, spread greater awareness before people go to the polls. The Trixies are never intended to be a popularity contest or a campaign of who made the 'better' content. That's not in line with the sense of community spirit in which they're run. Nominations will always be conducted anonymously and made at the discretion of each individual. In no way should the items/authors discussed here be the sole options to nominate. The thing is, by us all pitching in with notable memories from 2015-2016, it then aims to help with making your own measured judgements. Encouraging you to investigate the items discussed, and perhaps discover things you may have not otherwise known about, or have possibly overlooked. Also for newcomers who may not have been around since the start of 2015, this aims to inform and give everyone a greater understanding. Remember, all community members are eligible to receive a Trixie, so the power is still in your hands to make the pivotal choice. In short, this discussion simply intends to put ideas out there for everyone to decide on their own, with a broader perspective. Discussion Guidelines To help ensure this is conducted fairly and follows the above principles, here are a set of guidelines to follow when posting: 1. All Examples mentioned... E.g. STEX files, CJs or other site contribution: a) Must be submitted or occurred in the eligible period (2015 or 2016). b) Was created by or relates to someone in the Simtropolis community. c) Does not concern yourself. d) Are linked in your post, so others can check it out for themselves. (Feel free to use the auto-embed previews which resolve for links.) 2. Provide a few details about the Example, aiming to use a non-persuasive informational tone: For instance, where applicable: What is it? Who created it? What does it do or show? How was this a highlight for you? In what ways did you find it useful or interesting? 3. For each Category, please provide at least 2 applicable Examples, from 2 different Authors. E.g. Custom Content Author A Created this rustic commercial BAT that functions as a growable CS$ and a ploppable Landmark. Author B Created a set of filler Lots, which can be used to construct a custom park. 4. (Optional) Along with each Example, ONE image may be included, to help with the objective of informing. E.g. Custom Content This may show a way you've used the item in the applicable game. City Journals This could be an image embedded or linked from the author's CJ. (Please don't re-upload!) Community Might not be applicable, but if you can depict a notable other community contribution using a picture, go for it! Special Mention Thanks to @T Wrecks for thinking of the concept for a Trixies discussion thread in the first place! So without further ado... Post away with what you found memorable...
  5. Nominations for the 2014 Trixies are open! Nominate early. Nominate often. Just don't nominate the same person twice. The Awards Ceremony is now here:
  6. Bring back the MOTM Awards?

    Just realised apart from "missing" Trixies the MOTM/EOTM awards have left. Is there any intention of reviving them?
  7. 2015 Midyear Awards Ceremony

    LIVE! From the National Theater in Oak Ridge! Schulmania 2015 Midyear Awards Ceremony Hosted by Ironing Man!!! He's not just another starched shirt! And he makes the bad guys pleat for mercy! When he gets steamed he'll press on to victory! He'll collar the bad guys and hang in there until the job is done! My apologies on giving up on the text formatting partially through the editing process. The new website is excruciatingly sluggish and unresponsive and feels like way back in the dialup days. I hope this will improve because I am not super happy with it. Now, without further ado, the official 2015 Midyear Schulmania Posting Awards! [insert applause and cheers here] The new BFA Diplomatic Services Medal will be a new class of awards added into the quarterly Schulmania Awards Ceremonies beginning in Q3 2013. To qualify for this award, SimCity enthusiasts on Simtropolis and/or SC4Devotion need to personally receive a diplomatic delegation from Schulmania and/or the Bureau of Feline Affairs. In addition to receiving the medal, members will be granted a simoleon (§) next to their name in all awards ceremonies to come. It is the pleasure of the assembled representatives of the Feline Realms to grant the inaugural class of awards to these members: abcvs (craig_abcvs) § Curious George § Hester § Leech10 (Lyhoko Leaci)§ lucky7 § ROFLyoshi § Rank --- Name --- Comments 1 Leech10 (Lyhoko Leaci) § 1975 2 Hester § 1847 Awaiting awardees... 3 NMUSpidey 933 4 Benedict 540 5 Emperordaniel 536 6 Jacqulina 510 7 abcvs (craig_abcvs) § 491 8 111222333444 (Tonraq) 353 9 Usfighter15 (Airman15) 340 10 DioAngel 260 11 Zelgadis 247 12 sc4portugal 213 13 Gn_leugim 208 14 Explodingsims 205 15 Smarty218 200 16 gabry85 187 17 bakercity 186 18 Fledder200 184 19 PhatHead 181 20 TmiguelT 153 21 ImVhOzzi (Slashback) 149 22 Shingure 148 23 ky72x 139 24 sobol 138 25 penguin007 136 26 homeandaway 133 27 John94538 131 28 panthersimcity4 130 29 Korot 128 30 ComputerGuy890100 (SounderBruce) 127 31 dfnva 127 32 Muck308 126 33 csgcseri 123 34 lucky7 § 123 35 dralin321 121 36 asturianu 118 37 Joetropian1 118 38 Nathanthemayor 116 39 suplado! 113 40 Archean (Follarch) 109 41 Huston 108 42 kj3400 107 43 Titanicbuff 103 44 SimRico 101 45 Ggamgus 100 46 9988 96 47 Larks2242 (LarksTonguesInAspic) 96 48 sim_link 96 49 SimCoug 96 50 Dumanios 92 51 Patriots_1228 92 52 anarchy0029 91 53 topcliff 88 54 Twenty20 88 55 Jhrnemo 85 56 Mymyjp 79 57 cleaner475 78 58 anik 74 59 bbfan02 73 60 City_Master 71 61 KingTitan 70 62 Vivapanda 70 63 GreekMan 69 64 football_fever 68 65 Hiddentemple 65 66 Schriefer (JP Schriefer) 63 67 Rahjan 61 68 Escilnavia 59 69 Giligone 59 70 Jmsepe 59 71 PhilsCafe 58 72 1000000000000 (Ace) 57 73 edmonton_stinks 57 74 Sirron Kcuhc 56 75 pipishere 54 76 bat 53 77 Cefien 52 78 ilikehotdogsalot 52 79 jim 546 52 80 Jason Leo 51 81 Sgt Pepper 49 82 Za 49 83 Fallon144 48 84 Only A Memory 47 85 Victor Valdes 47 86 wwetom1 47 87 nihonkaranws 46 88 RushHourFreak 46 89 wiecher 46 90 Shadow_Assassin 45 91 Shanna 45 92 89james89 44 93 Geometry(GeometryMath Algebra) 43 94 Simbourgeois 43 95 Connor_V 42 96 Narya 38 97 chptrk 37 98 Mastof (Forthwall) 37 99 DCMetro34 36 100 kakado_to_save 36 101 CarmineHilton 35 102 Hahayoudied 35 103 Bigbuilder 34 104 hahei 33 105 Markus J 33 106 Tomasneto 33 107 Ultimate727 32 108 Vandy 32 109 astronelson 31 110 Naftixe 31 81 Sgt Pepper 49 82 Za 49 83 Fallon144 48 84 Only A Memory 47 85 Victor Valdes 47 86 wwetom1 47 87 nihonkaranws 46 88 RushHourFreak 46 89 wiecher 46 90 Shadow_Assassin 45 91 Shanna 45 92 89james89 44 93 Geometry(GeometryMath Algebra) 43 94 Simbourgeois 43 95 Connor_V 42 96 Narya 38 97 chptrk 37 98 Mastof (Forthwall) 37 99 DCMetro34 36 100 kakado_to_save 36 101 CarmineHilton 35 102 Hahayoudied 35 103 Bigbuilder 34 104 hahei 33 105 Markus J 33 106 Tomasneto 33 107 Ultimate727 32 108 Vandy 32 109 astronelson 31 110 Naftixe 31 138 City Builder 9111 20 139 purpledaddy 20 140 slickbg56 20 141 thepokemaniac 20 142 citiesxlfan42 19 143 Dsrwhat316 19 144 Evillions 19 145 jj88 19 146 Ln X 19 147 sejr99999 19 148 Charles Rodulfo 18 149 Cowcorn 18 150 Darmok 18 151 Kusajika Yachiru 18 152 Westy177 18 153 archesrule29 17 154 CTMandR 17 155 jonpaulosiglos 17 156 MattHecker 17 157 Takemethere 17 158 UndercoverNinja12 17 159 B.
