First up I wanted to apologise because I feel like a bad friend.  I keep popping up for a bit, posting something, replying to things and then disappearing, seemingly ignoring a lot of what is going on on my f-list.  I'm not ignoring it.  I'm reading almost all of it, but I've been dealing with some health issues since July.  At the moment, it's not looking like they are serious, although I still don't have answers, but it does mean that I've not been feeling that great, and I've not been feeling chatty.  At all.  So yes, I've been quiet apart from when I force myself to do something, or the guilt gets to me.

But you're not here for that.  You're here for the spam.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, I am updating after nearly a year.

Photobucket

I apologise for the blurry pictures, but it's nearly one in the morning, I have to get up at seven for work, and I can't spend any more time tonight trying to find a new hosting site.

Uploaded to a new host now, which gives better picture quality.  Hopefully this one will be better.

I’m not going to be sharing lots of pictures from the last rotation, or even doing them in the new look I was working on, for a couple of simple reasons. One, I played this rotation very quickly, and took hardly any pictures because I want to get on with the rebuild and two, thanks to that rebuild things look a bit odd in Regalton at the moment. As part of the rebuild, I’ve completed Project Refit and also went and removed all of Nouk’s original colours from my hair folder, meaning that with a few hairs for my blokes, all the hairs I have in game are now in the colours I use from Pooklet’s palette. I’ve also made various improvements on pieces of cc (such as rescaling Nani’s neighbourhood deco from MTS) since I last played the neighbourhood. This means that I’ve pulled quite a bit of my cc lately and, well things look a little strange.

60+ pictures under the cut )

This is my first response for the + 5000 fall in love meme organised by [livejournal.com profile] fireflowersims.

Title:  Oh For a Bit of Peace and Quiet.
Prompt: A&A: Valentine's day...but they have SIX kids. I can't imagine a lot of private time in there from [livejournal.com profile] peasant007
Rating: PG I suppose. 
Summary:  Anthony and Alexandra return home after a night out on Valentine's Day.
Notes: Argh, I’m so rusty. I’m not overly pleased with how this all read once I got it down on paper. It sounded so much better in my head when I was thinking it up. It doesn’t seem to flow as well as I would like, at all. But then again, asking for prompts for this meme, is a way to get me back to writing, so hopefully that’s all to the good, and I’ll improve. That being said, this did turn out being longer than I thought it would, and could probably do with editing.

On to notes about the circumstances of this piece. It’s set not long after Zane joined the family (my time of year is all messed up I know, but that’s the constraints of the game for you), so all six of the children are at home. Their rough ages are: Bethany and Christopher, 17, coming up 18, David, 14, Sarah Jane, 12, Zane 10 and Mickey 9.

Now where were we? )

Hello!  Time for more picspam.

This time, it's of Simmingfordbury (currently situated in Bluewater but I want to change that at some point) and the first part of the Simdon spam.  (Sorry Marina, you have to wait for part two of that for the pictures I know you want to see).  So on with the spam!

Quite a few pictures )

I've been tagged by Ang to do Anthony, which is cool.  These really are fun to do, since I can get some of the nonsense I have in my head about my characters down on paper to share.

So, here we go. 

Anthony Smith )

Ok, no real tagging again, but Ang ([livejournal.com profile] peasant007 ) you don't seem to have done many, so I'm tagging you back.  I want to know 10 facts about Ansley please.  Of course if you don't want to do it, you don't have to, and anyone else who wants to do it, feel free.

It's that time again, I'm going to share some of many pictures that didn't make it into either part of chapter 22.  This chapter really was wrapping up Eddie's plot, and starting to lay the foundations of Bertie and Stuart's story.  There was also a lot of gameplay in it, since, well it's about time generation five became teenagers. ;)


About 80 pics for you. :) )

So that's the out-takes for this chapter, I hope you liked them.  I'm starting work on the spare story for Lysander and Rosalind next, but I don't want the gap between this chapter and 23 to be as big as the gap between 21 and 22, so hopefully it will be only a few months until we're back in Regalton.

First of all happy St George's Day everyone. :D

But today isn't just the day of England's patron saint, it is my legaversary. Two years ago today I plonked Gabe Legacy down on a blank lot in a subhood of Pleasantview. I've come a long way since then, and Regalton has been rebuilt as it's own neighbourhood, but I am still as committed to playing the family in as authentic a way as possible.

I really have no idea when the next chapter will be ready, but I do have a few small gifts for you today.

These pictures are just to whet your appetite though, my main gift to you is a music video. You see the lyrics to Mean Bone by Slash's Snakepit really resonate with me and where I took Eddie and Marielle's story. One morning on my way to work whilst I was writing chapter 19, the song came on my CD player, making my brain come up with a video that made me laugh so much, I nearly crashed.

Here is my attempt to recreate it. It is the first time I've made a video, so it is a bit rough and ready. I'm also not happy with the quality of the upload, even though the original file is really good.

Anyway, it's here:

Yup with a new chapter up and done, it's time for some out-takes from making it.  I say some, but according to photobucket I've just uploaded 85 pictures, so I guess that should be lots?

Blather and pictures. )

So I've been feeling like I'm making no progress Sims-wise at the moment. When I think about it, I've got a lot done, it just doesn't feel like it. On the plane I managed to get the first part of Joe's punishment written (there are four parts, plus linking scenes, each taking place on a different set), and I spent hours on Wednesday and Sunday shooting that part. I've got teasers for you at the end of the post.

I've also got the outline for the next chapter done, and the plan is to start sorting pictures whilst my virus scan runs tonight. I really want to get the next chapter out before the new year.

The rotation is almost finished too: just got the two lots at Sim State and half a year at the VPLs to play, and then I'm back in the main house for the first time in well over a month. So, I've been busy, it just feels like I haven't.

The other thing I've done is my Christmas thing. No story from me this year, but I did pop into a dummy 'hood to do a massive photoshoot:

We wish you a Merry christmas... )



Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... )


One last thing before I sign off, I did kinda promise a few teasers for Joe's punishment didn't I?

Teasers? Where? )

dicreasy2: (Default)
I've been doing more set up for Joe's punishment tonight.  I've got nearly everyone in the neighbourhood now., just need to put in a couple more simselves and Joe of course.

I did come up with a bit of a puzzler though.  This is the 'hood I did my Halloween photoshoot in, so I have quite a few gen 4 sims about, and I was going to bring them into it.  Well I need to pack out that amphitheatre don't I?  The thing is every other sim in the project is dressed modernly, so I wasn't sure whether to do the same with them or not.

What are you going on about Di? )

I feel a bit like rambling at the moment, so I thought I'd bring you all up to date on the rotation and a few other things.

Who doesn't love picspam? )

I have also been working on the sets for Joe's punishment.

What is Joe in for? )

Anyway that's it from me really at the moment, apart from to say I'm getting very excited about Friday, so this probably doesn't make much sense.

ETA:

I am crap at looking for CC at times. )
