Current and future cosmological surveys demand the development of simulated universes. This is important to be prepared for the data analysis, its understanding and for getting more reliable results. In this colloquium I will show one of the many ways to create galaxy mock catalogues. This pipeline can be used to mimic any kind of galaxy sample, for any survey and using any halo catalog as an input. Finally, I will show an example of 2 thousand mock catalogues of BAO sample for the DES survey using COLA fast simulations.
