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 )

Busy, busy

I seem to suddenly have loads I want to achieve this week with regards to the sims, so if I'm a bit quiet online it's probably because I'm working on those projects.  Because I feel like talking tonight though I thought I'd share what I'm up to with you all.

First of all I've been playing.  I've got to shoot Vicky, Rosemary and Louisa's graduation party as part of the next chapter, and then once I've sped through the other three uni lots (where I can cheat my little heart out because they are all distant cousins) I'm back in the main house to shoot the rest of the chapter and start with chapter 20 too.

Anyway playing means I have picspam for you.

Picspam with the girls )

As well as playing I'm working on a couple of CC projects.  The first is a new alien skintone.  I mentioned in my reply to Prof in my vampire skintone post that I fancied having a go at making a green skintone with a hint of silver to it.  Once I got the idea into my head it wouldn't go, so I sat down and ended up with a skintone that looked nice in Bodyshop on the mannequins there.  Bodyshop isn't the best testing ground, so I finished the adult skins and imported the skin into the game.  I transferred it to my dummy game and went looking in CAS for a couple of aliens.  Here's the results of my test:

More fun with skintones )

The other thing I'm doing at the moment is another Herter Brothers wallpaper and  ceiling set.  I finished the lower border this evening, but thought I'd share how this came together for any of you who are interested.

Wallpapering )

So that's what I've been up to.  If I go a bit quiet it's because I've got caught up in what I'm doing.

How is everyone else today?

Yes indeedy, it's time for me to waffle on about my latest chapter and share some of the pictures that didn't make it.

First of all I knew that this chapter would not be a happy one for you all to read (the next one won't be great either I'm afraid) but I feel I need to do this in order to do the storyline that's been in my head since last June justice.  Sometimes I get an idea in my head that just needs to be told, and this is one of them I'm afraid.  It's not easy for me to do at all, because Eddie and his family are just sweethearts and need to be happy, but do it I must.

Pretty picturs and more talk. )

That's all the out-takes I've got for you today, but I did want to talk about a couple of other things.

I really did grin like an idiot when I saw the Stanley secret, and again when I saw Anthony and read the historical legacy secret too.  It means a lot to me that I've caught people's imaginations with my little creations.    Stanley's queue is going to get rather long, but I don't think he'll mind in the slightest.

I've been building. )

Anyway I think that's enough from me tonight.

So things are going very slowly at the moment with shooting Punishment. 62 sims on a lot = lot lagging like a bitch at times, although selecting everyone helps with that. I still have 5 pages to shoot, but I am hoping to have it all shot this weekend.

In the meantime, here's a little something I made for one of the scenes. It's a bit pixelated, but I thought I would share it anyway.

Teaser just for you. )

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? )

Now that I have got Alexandra's story done and on the exchange, I'd like to share how the storyline changed and evolved with you.  This is extremely spoilery, so if you haven't read chapter 15.3, don't read this.

Long ramble on Alexandra and Joe. )

Hey hey, I enjoyed looking for out-takes and sharing my thoughts last chapter so I thought I'd do it again. 

First of all, I know that I have said this in most of my comments, but I really, really love playing and writing the three boys.  Not a day goes by when they don't do something to amuse me.  Writing them is so easy: I was worried about writing the last chapter since I wasn't entirely happy with the outline, but once I started, the words just flowed, in fact I could have kept writing once I'd finished it.

I was also setting up three story-lines in the chapter, including the BC, and although I have to say that they're not all going to be fun and games, i hope that everyone will enjoy reading them.

I'm planning on uploading the boys after university, but since that won't be for a month or so if anyone desperately wants them before then, let me know and I'll put them up for you.

Well with both parts of chapter 14 now posted, I thought I'd share some thoughts on it and quite a few pictures that didn't make it.

First of all, I found chapter 14 very difficult to write, especially the first part, mainly because it was game-play based rather than plot based.  I find having a plot for a chapter makes things so much more fluid to write, so I came up with some character based scenes to 1 make it easier for me and 2 try to drive the chapter along.   I'm pleased with how they turned out, and I hope that you all enjoyed reading them.

Something else I wanted to do with this chapter was to start pushing Edward to the fore, whilst having William step back, but not disappear completely because there were still things I wanted him to do.  I'm happy with the balance I've struck, and I think that my readers should now feel like they know Edward, and will look forward to him taking over from William.

Ok, onto some pictures I think:

Out takes )
 Gosh that's a lot of pictures, Hope you liked them.
