I hope it's the right section here at the forum. But please let me just specifiy that I already made this suggestion at another forum. So my idea is not "exclusive" for makemysimsreal.

Intro

Its' been a long time since picolink multiweear closed. They used to have clothes (mainly) related to countries traditional wear, festivities. Since then, apart from Medieval, Victorian historial, I haven't seen much about other countries traditional clothing, deco objects, furniture recolours and houses. Plus I also miss some Scandinavian sites which used to provide high quality CC.

My idea

I'm working a lot for all Gipsy and Rroma people related. Sometimes I share but I would find it even more exciting to have other retexturists (and why not meshers) start a collaborative work for various Theme projects, all having to do with regional, European, Russian culture - not often represented.

Examples

As we got on several forums Advent calendars and colouring theme topics, Christmas in July, etc., why not be a small team working on everything Gipsy, everything Provence, everything Scandinavian, everything Slavic, Balkanian and Russian. Let's not forget about the other countries of the continent Europe.

This would include :

- create, retexture clothes, jewels, maybe make up
- create Sims and share them with a traditional outfit, etc.
- retexture objects, create wall-papers, etc. (all Buy and Build)
- create residential lots (preferably if CC furnished) which are typical of a region, at least from the outside (while inside it can be modern with a few traditional details however, like curtains, beddings, paintings, etc.)

What I'd expect from future collaborators for such themes

- Good knowledge of meshes to use, at least if they're independent or using the repository technique (most of time for Buy and Build CC)
- Having a passion for discovering other cultures, making researches for patterns, ressource images to use and why not share if help for retexturing is needed
- For the Gipsy theme, please do not always target flamenco and Spain. The Gipsy culture is multi-ethnic, mostly European today and Christian or Klezmer, from various origins (as far as Ancient Persia). So be curious and learned on such details, especially for other countries than Spain and South France.
________________________

So again, here, Aileen and all, be aware of the fact that this suggestion has been made at another forum as well and privately to a very talented Sims 2 retexturist, living somewhere in Europe. I'm therefore already awaiting replies from two Simmers, will know more about their thougths and availability for the projects.

Thank you very much for your attention.

EDIT : I'mcurrently writing a PDF. One version for people who asked for knowing more about the Gipsy community suffering of wrong ideas. Another version with only Sims 2 hints, tips, suggestions for the project.

2nd EDIT :
In the following document you will find more details, tips :
