Sim University!

Post  Skwittlez on Wed Apr 11, 2012 5:27 am

Talking about college got me thinking... there should be a Sim University! Not a game - a legit college. How awesome would that be?

Then, my creative mind started thinking - I could totally set one up!


Obviously it wouldn't be a legit college, but it could be something fun for players to do, and a great way to help teach players, especially new players, about The Sims.

I would dedicate a website for it, and players could sign up for different classes - architect and design, creating sims, etc.

Other players would be able to be professors and would teach people about the topic they're teaching.

It would act like an online class - once a week, they'll post a lecture about something and maybe assign "homework". At the end of the week, students can post their homework online for the professor and other students to see. There wouldn't really be any grades, but the work could be critiqued and given ideas, suggestions, etc to help them improve their work.

The classes could go for a couple weeks, or until the professor decided s/he has nothing left to teach, and the students will be given a credit for completing that class. At the end of the month, classes will open for registration and they can register for another class if they want.

If students take all the classes, they'll get a little diploma saying they graduated from Sim University!


I know, wild idea, but I think it could be something really fun if I get enough people interested. So, what do you guys think? Would you be interested in seeing Sim University? Vote yes or no in the poll, and send me some of your ideas in the comments.

If you'd like to join a class or become a professor, let me know! If I get enough interest, I think we could make this a great opportunity for anyone and everyone looking to learn a little more about The Sims, without them having to search all over the internet for tutorials, etc.

You could create a new website, or donate a section of the forum to it so everyone could access the "lessons". I can also restrict what certain people/groups see, so a group of "students" could be made and only that group should see!

Yeah good idea! We need to attract more people! I've practically been spamming General Discussions over at TS3 Forums.

Lol yeah, sorry, I had to drive home from class xD

I've been just calling it Sim University, but apparently someone else already has a university (why does it figure, I think of an idea, and apparently someone already has it! oh well, lol). I'll have to look around and see what the name of their's is so it's not the same, but I think for now, Sim University will be fine.

Would you like me to add a calendar to the forum so you can add any dates and stuff?

Once you get the members/students, if you give me their username I can add them to a group and allow them to view certain posts, but not regular members. I'll get a grasp of the calendar and set it up Smile

Sounds good Smile

Maybe you can create a new forum category for the classes? I'm just afraid of cluttering up the showcase section with all kinds of topics for the classes and what not, since I'm thinking each class will have at least two posts for lessons and assignments, plus whatever the students post to each other, you know? Just trying to keep things from getting cluttered lol

Sure, just tell me what classes there are and I'll create them. I can create a category within a category as well, so we could just have all Sims University stuff in there! This ideas really taking shape, I'm liking it!

Haha, alright, whatever works, you know more about it than me xD

For now, the classes are...
Interior Design
Architecture
Exterior Design
Creating Sims
Technical (for creating your own custom content and worlds, uploading to the exchange, updating games, creating back ups, things like that)


I think that's it for now. I'm doing a lot of advertising and such, so if I get any ideas from other players about other classes, those may need to be added, too. But, for now, that should be good.

Right so I've added those in, let me know if you want anything else added to it. Once we get the "students" I'll allow only those to view them.
