Yes TSO is still around

http://tso-e.com/blog/

I'm waiting to hear from someone from the current team to clarify how they feel about our using the TSO content in Sims 1 - this should be good advertising for them if they want to promote TSO more.

I'd apologize for opening this can of worms, but I'm not. I didn't know about E.A.'s position. I am sorry if I got anyone in trouble with my big mouth, though. I wouldn't want any of you getting in trouble because of me, but I do think E.A. needs to be more clear with their policies, and if this thread clears things up amongst creators, so much the better.

I didn't personally request permission to use TSO graphics for the objects on my site. As far as I remember, the word from Maxis/EA at the time was that as long as you didn't charge money it, you could use the graphics from TSO. (So pay sites can't charge for TSO objects.) I assume that is still the case. Even if their official policy is currently different, I doubt that EA would notice, let alone care, that someone used TSO graphics to make Sims objects.

I'm just speaking from my own experience. If someone knows otherwise, just speak up.

I contacted EA and they wrote me:
Quote:
In general, Electronic Arts is fine with players creating their own content for use in The Sims, even if that content comes from The Sims Online. As long as you are not creating morally objectionable or illegal content, there shouldn't be any problem.


So I hope it is ok now to publish the content and you can find it now on this yahoo group:

Well, I guess that ends the whole "Maxis doesn't approve" debate that's been in the community forever.

Thank you for asking and getting a definitive answer. And for making all of these wonderful TSO objects available for TS1. :)

Quick question: May these objects be cloned and/or recolors with credit?

I used original Maxis Objects as base so you can make with them what you want.

I am German and not always perfect in English, so if i understand a question wrong I will apologize for it.

I added your group to the Cloning Policies thread:
http://simblesseoblige.com/viewtopic.php?p=22039#22039

Thanks to both you and Pete for making these available. I thoght I was going to have to reactivate my account for a month just to get everything. I noticed a "safari" series in there as well. Those and the wood bed are new to me :) Guess they have been adding goodies since I played! It's great to not have to miss out on them clap

I finished some doors last week (I will add them this weekend to the group) but I also want some matching windows to them.
So if somebody is interested to make some windows please contact me!
Here pictures of the doors I want matching windows:
