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.

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 )

Welcome the first of the new look picspams.  Since I'm moving into producing completely staged and plotted chapters, I thought it's be nice to post some picspam of what actually happens when I play.  Thanks to the results of the poll I published a little while ago, I'm going to be sharing as much as I can from the other houses too, and each house is named after the family who first moved in.  I'm also trying to keep this more organised too, but I might not talk as much as I have in the past.  With that said, let's begin.
90+ pictures )

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 )

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.

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)
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?
dicreasy2: (Default)
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. )

dicreasy2: (Default)
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? )
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 )

So...

I have been meaning to post here for the past three nights with pictures of Simmouth because I've nearly finished everything I want done before Eddie goes on honeymoon, but it's just not happened yet.  Trouble is I've reached building burn out and just want to play.

That is exactly what I've done then, and had a lot of fun too.  I've finished up the uni rotation.  Elle and Sophia are ready to move back to Regalton, get married etc.  I decided to cheese Carmen since she was a serious pleasure sim, and although I re-rolled her to knowledge at the end of her second year, I just wasn't feeling it so thought I'd give her a go as grilled cheese instead.  So far she is very happy: rarely out of platinum, and has eaten 56 sandwiches.  She has now graduated and is sitting in the simbin ready for me to move her and her roommate Laura onto an empty lot.

Eddie has also graduated and it was an extremely glitchy, stalky, funny affair.

Graduation pics )
So yeah a pretty funny party all round.  Tomorrow I am going to get Theo and Stanley home, and then I can play the main neighbourhood rotation and get Eddie, Theo, Elle and Sophia married off.  I've decided to keep Stanley single, and have Rosemary carry on Robert's branch of the family.  Not my original idea, but I can't see Stanley settling down at the moment.  I'm planning on moving him into a version of the observers' house from the BC.

I will also post pictures of Simmouth either tomorrow, or Saturday.

I'm also planning on starting to sort the next chapter next week.  I would ideally like to spend this weekend playing and getting generation 5 on its way.

dicreasy2: (Default)
Ok so this entry is a day later than I planned.  I've got the week off this week, and yesterday I was planning on getting the boys through their final year, but I opened the game, thought about it and had a panic attack that Simmouth was so not ready for anyone to holiday there.  So I spent the day building lots rather than playing.  I will share pictures later in the post.

Oh, also my last 3 chapter uploads have been downrated, a lot.  Day 6 of the BC has gone down from 4.69 -> 4.51; 15.2a has gone from 4.66 -> 4.46 and 15.2b from 4.62 -> 4.42.  It makes me laugh that people spend their energy doing that.  I mean really, either they really didn't like that Nerd won, and my new plots, OR they are sadsacks with no lives.  I will admit I might be getting a bit upset if I was still in the position where I was getting very little feedback at Boolprop for it, but as it is, I'll take what you all say there over the ratings system any day.  ETA I was just looking at my simpage for something and noticed that others including day 3 have been downrated too. 

So...who is this Marielle Bird anyway? )

Right that's it for now.  Since the cuts are effed up, this probably looks a mess, so sorry about that, I don't know if I can fix it.
