Schedule of Challenges Hi everyone, We're pleased to announce the full schedule for Simtropolis Challenges Season 3! All challenges have now been confirmed and scheduled accordingly. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Ideas Bank. Feel free to keep them coming, as they will be considered for future seasons. This also applies to any ideas not selected this time. A big focus this season is on keeping the events flowing. We realise that different challenges suit different players. So considering this, there will always be something to take part in. Whether related to a specific type of city-building, or a more general theme -- we hope this season will offer a much wider range of challenges. Challenge Types There will be 4 types of challenges: Weekly Min 7 days (Voting 6 days) Extended Min 14 days (Voting 8 days) Monthly Min 30 days (Voting 10 days) Custom Content Min 30 days (Voting 12 days) Each challenge type will carry an increased reputation prize bonus, and is also tracked using the new Leaderboard System. As mentioned previously, a big thing this season will be Custom Content challenges for SimCity 4. These will run each for 30 days, followed by a 12 day voting period. The great thing about these is they'll have limited rules, so allow you to be really creative. There's a Lot of talented creators here, but this is also an opportunity for newcomers to try their hand at tools like the Lot Editor. It'll be really exiting to see how these challenges unfold. Monthly challenges will allow up to 3 submissions per author. All entered images can receive votes, with only your highest rated being used in the final ranking. With the exception of Vanilla Only and the Custom Content ones, ALL challenges will be open to any city-building game. So without further delay, they will be as follows...
