Wow, it's a long time since I did one of these.  Aaanyway, in honour of Regalton 3.0 and the fact I now stage my chapters entirely based on my storylines and what has happened in game, I'm planning on posting more picspams, that are better ordered.  Obviously anything of a spoilery nature won't be shown.

Lots of pics follow the cut )



And I think that is where I will leave off part 1 of the main hood picspam.  Look out for more soon.

Really, what was the point of having grandchildren if you couldn’t spoil them rotten, and then hand them back to their parents? )

So, this is long again, which is why it's over here.  I also don't quite know what was going on in my mind when I was writing this this morning.  My prose isn't normally as florid as the first couple of paragraphs of this are so, yeah.  It's not really my style of writing at all, and I don't know why I wrote it this way, but I hope it's fun to read .  Enjoy.



"I have been th...th...thinking," )
dicreasy2: (Eddie)
So, I have a list of things to do as long as my arm, and I don't really feel like doing any of them.  I'm thinking I'm going to have to take a leaf out of Widget's book and start making monthly to do lists, if only to guilt me into doing them and crossing things off.  I'm currently firing the game up to sort out Alfie, but I've not done any more filming since my CreeMo round up post, and have only played a couple houses.  I've also not finished the red damask wall set, or finished the rescaled teacups I've made.  Actually, there's not too much to do for those: all the meshes are made and the packages complete, I just need to slave them to the original meshes.  That won't take long, I just need to get my head round following the instructions, since no matter how many times I've done it, I always manage to mess something up on the first package I do.

Aaaanyway, enough of that.  I've been promising picspam for a while, so here we go.  This is the first part of the Regalton houses, and you'll notice that there's nothing from either John's house or the main house.  The reason is that I've not played them yet: I wanted to get the chapter written first, since I need to shoot some things with John and his family and I wasn't sure what age I need his child to be.  As for the main house, well the main house is always the last one I play in the rotation. 

Also, I should say that part way through this, I decided to change my rotation and synchronise all the seasons, and i started playing with lighting mods, so you'll see a few anomalies with lighting and seasons with these pictures.  For those who are interested, I've cut my rotation down from five days to three days, and one rotation equalling one year at uni.  Basically as I was starting to play this rotation I realised that over the past year, all of my ages had become hopelessly out of whack, and part of that was due to how I was playing the cousins at uni.  This way should make it much easier to keep everyone at the age they should be, and I'll check that against a spreadsheet I've set up.  That's the plan anyway.

But now, onto pictures.

lots of piccies this way )


dicreasy2: (Emily Rose WTF?)
Wow, it is a long time since I did one of these, but I have been playing recently, and thoroughly enjoying it. That is when the computer isn't crashing. Yes, I'm still having issues with my new computer, but I've just fitted a replacement video card, and we'll see if that helps.
Picspam this way )

dicreasy2: (Default)
So, I'm away from my computer for the best part of a day, and my f-list explodes, but in a good way.  I'm totally loving reading all these 10 facts memes, and they're great fun to do too.

I've been tagged by six people, for six different sims, so here goes.  :D

Bethany Smith )

Ok, tagging time.  So many of you have already done this, I'm not going to tag five, instead I'm going to say Caaaaaaait [livejournal.com profile] regacylady ) I'd love 10 facts about Ezra Howard please, and anypne else who wants to do this for a character, go ahead!  It's a lot of fun!.
dicreasy2: (Default)
Wow, this playing malarky means I actually have pictures to share with you all. I've been meaning to share some of these for the past 2 weeks, so there are lots of them I'm afraid, and I apologise to those of you with slower connections.

LOTS of piccies (100+) )

i still have a few days to play in the rotation before I'm able to get to the main house, but for now, this is it. Lots of pictures for you, and I'm sorry the captions were so uninspired. I really must post more, smaller picspams rather than leave it to one big post. Anyway, that's what I've been doing in the game. I hope you enjoyed it.

Silly sims

I've not really had chance to play the last week, but today, once I'd finished doing some boring RL bits, I decided to fire up the game and see if I can get at least one of the weddings I need for the next chapter played and shot.  Simple right?

Err, no.  My sims had other ideas.

Crazy, glitchy wedding ahead )

dicreasy2: (Default)
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.

Pressie 1 )

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:

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.

I have a mixed bag of news about my current playing and the progress of my next chapter.

Good news is I have everything I need from the main house for chapter 18 and quite a bit of chapter 19 too. 

Good news is I have everything I need from three of the other families I'm shooting for this chapter. 

Bad news is I have two more to shoot with and they are quite big bits.

Bad news is one of those families is ten families away from where I currently am in the rotation.

Good news is I'm cheating a lot with the families who bore me so I'm hardly in their houses at all.  In fact I've decided to bypass the Turner household completely at the moment and play Stanley because they bore the socks off me and Stanley is Stanley.

Good news is I have next week off so I can get some serious simming done then.

As I am playing though I do have picspam for you all.
Pictures! )

One last thing I'd like your opinions on.  I would really like to do more with Vicky when she graduates.  (As if I don't have enough I want to do).  To my mind she would make a perfect investigative agent along with Rosemary, so I'm thinking about doing at least one interlude which would be her starring in a mystery.  What's holding me back is the thought that Chris and Sarah already write the wonderful Sim Spade, and although this wouldn't be a spoof and would be very different, I'm worried about comparisons, and people thinking I'm copying their idea, so what do you all think?  Yay or nay?

It's a bit late I know, but Happy New Year everyone.  I hope things are going well for you so far this year. 

I've been pretty busy with my game so I thought I'd share what I've been doing, and of course that means picspam.

Clicky, clicky. )

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? )
dicreasy2: (Default)
...and pictures I will deliver.  I've got pics of not only Simmouth but also Theo and Stanley's graduations because I'm really not sure if they will make 15.3: I've got so much to fit into that chapter as it is.

Simmouth )

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.
