Event details

Voting Rules

  1. Votes may be cast by rating images inside the album.
  2. You may rate all entries once at any rating value (1-5). All votes are anonymous.
  3. We encourage you not to rate your own entry.
  4. Try to vote on all other entries, as this will help ensure the results are evenly distributed.


Suggested Voting Criteria

Here are some ideas to help you evaluate each entry when voting:

  • How well does the scene portray the mood and atmosphere of Winter?
  • To what extent is the image central to the Winter theme?
  • Does the image stand out as being unique or interesting?
  • The amount of detail throughout the scene.
  • If used, how effectively do any show/ice effects add to the overall visual appeal?


The winners will be the top 3 ranked images after a 10 day voting period. Reputation prizes will be awarded based on the number of entries, and the overall average rating. See this topic for more info.

For this  Monthly  challenge, rep prizes will be given for the top 5 placed entries, along with points for the "Overall" and "Monthly & Custom Content" leaderboards.

      I was online hunting for a dat file for SimCity 4 that would allow cities to experience the four seasons i know we have downloads for season changing trees and one that can make our cities all covered in snow but i was thinking more along the lines of changing the whole city from one season to the next.  Do we have something like this or is this something one of Tech Guru's might like to try tackling  maybe give us some rain showers once in a while instead of just going from day to night.  what are some peoples thoughts on this?

      Hello guys,
      Is it just me that simtropolis is taking ages to load any page? I mean I tagged this post for "simtropolis challenges" because I achieved a challenge being able to post a topic   Maybe the site is haunted since it is Halloween. 
      Besides, am I the only who gets this issue regularly that when I start a new topic, there is no field available for typing? 
      Anyway, just wanted to know if I'm the only one having this issue. Oh, and happy new year by the way because due to this issue, I expect my topic will be posted by new year's eve

      City Showcase - 
      Show the best scenes from your city - 
      Season 3 - Challenge #23 - Monthly (47 days) - 
      Results Announced Here!
      Thanks to @MushyMushy for the challenge idea.
      The previous challenges have all been focused around specific themes. We've visited urban, rural and night shots, amongst waterfronts, railroads and bridges. There have been a multitude of magnificent creations from many magnanimous mayors!
      But this time, in the final Monthly challenge of the season, we're throwing the doors open, giving you freedom to present any of your finest city-building scenes.
      You may enter up to 3 images you've created from your cities, towns or villages. The image(s) can be anything you'd like, not necessarily depicting high density and skyscrapers -- it could even be a more rural or desolate location. Basically anywhere big or small where your citizens reside. As usual, you may also use custom content and/or image editing to enhance the appearance. This is all about providing an empty canvas (or 3) for you to express your unique city-building creativity.
      This is a  Monthly  challenge running for a mammoth 47 days.
      Submission Requirements
      The submitted image(s) must include a form of human settlement (e.g. city, town or village).
        You may use any city-building game -- including SimCity 4, Cities: Skylines, SimCity (2013), and CitiesXL / XXL.
         You may submit a maximum of 3 images into the challenge album. These can be from the same or different locations.   
      a. All your entered images will be eligible for voting, however only your highest rated image will be used in the final ranking.
      So basically there are 3 opportunities to gain a place in the results, with no downside to submitting more than one.

      b. In the event of images having an identical rating and votes, the earlier submitted image will be selected.

      For each submission, you may link a larger version in the description, or post inside the comments section. Please see this post for clarification.
      For the purpose of voting, please check a full title & description are included on your image(s).
        Your image(s) must be created solely by yourself, without any assistance from anyone else.
        To qualify for entry, please ensure your image(s) are uploaded to the submissions category, and comply with these requirements.  
      Leaderboard Rankings  
      A new leaderboard system is currently running for this season. This has been designed to incorporate all challenges, linking with each set of results.
      Each place in a challenge has points on offer -- the higher you finish, the more points you gain. Then at the end of the season, prizes will be given out to the top 10 in the final standings, with the winner being crowned the Grand Champion! 
      This  Monthly  challenge is eligible for the "Overall" and "Monthly & Custom Content" leaderboards.
      Full details and the current standings can be viewed in the following topic:
      The winners will be the top 3 ranked images after a 10 day voting period. Reputation prizes will be awarded based on the number of entries, and the overall average rating. See this topic for more info.
      For this  Monthly  challenge, rep prizes will be given for the top 5 placed entries, along with points for the "Overall" and "Monthly & Custom Content" leaderboards.

Season's Greetings!
