Onto part 2 of the picspam from the main hood.  As you can see I've redone my tags too.  Hopefully this will make it easy for people to find picspam of the families they want to see.

Lots more pictures under the cut )

That's all the picspam I have for now.  I need to actually play before I can share any more.

I've finished my first edit of the next chapter, but I need to read through it and make any more edits before I can start shooting, but I don't think it'll be long before then.

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.

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 )

I have picspam for you once again.  As soon as I've finished posting the second part of this, I can start playing again, so yay!  Looking forward to that.

A little bit of picspam )

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 )

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)
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.

I'm still slogging through the rotation, and for the most part it is still going well.  The only thing is that I've had a couple of things happen over the last two days that worry me slightly.  I can probably dismiss them as just one of those things, and two of them I've had happen before, but I'm still worried. 

You see I had to pop into Di's house for a bit, and whilst there I thought I'd better clear the trash from her memories.  When I looked at her memories, she had a memory of kissing herself for the first time.  Now I have had this happen before when two sims have made out in a hot tub, and nothing bad came of it, so I'm hoping it's just that.

The second thing is that when Sophia got married, Catherine had a memory of her joining the family even though she was already a member.  Again I have seen this happen before, so here's hoping it's just a glitch.

The more worrying things are that I have 3 sims with LTWs who shouldn't have them.  Two are a Newson toddler and child, and the other is Ernie, SimAngela's son.  The two Newson children, well they are Maxis sims and odd things do sometimes happen with Maxis sims, but Ernie...  The last time I was in their house he didn't have a LTW and the only thing I have done since is patch the game.   He's also rolling teen and adult fortune sim  wants: as a toddler he wanted to buy a car.  I've also had a couple of sims reroll their LTW with no help from me, and I am getting LTWs that don't correspond to a sims aspiration.  Since I have never done any of the the things on the VBT list, I am really hoping that these are just odd glitches, and do not mean that the neighbourhood is heading for a melt down.   I do backup regularly, but if there is a problem, I would be worried about how far back the problem goes.   Now I can rebuild: I've done it before, I'd just really rather not.

*sigh*  So that's my worries, now who wants pictures?

Spares and such )

So tha'ts it for the rotation at the moment.  Hopefully the glitches aren't too bad, and my 'hood won't explode. 

I have one more thing I want to share.  I've built the first set for my plan with Joe.  I'm pretty pleased with it: it's simple but effective.

I wouldn't want to walk down here alone at night... )

So I finished my rotation today.  It was only a short one because of sending the second wave of the generation to university, two days in each house and no uni until the gang gets there.  I thought I'd do my usual and share pictures.

dicreasy2: (Default)
Yeah, so I'm finding it really hard going writing chapter 14.1.  I have ideas as to what to write, but it's taking me so long to get it down in Word.  Normally when I'm writing during the week, I average 20-25 slides a night.  Not a great deal, but I tend to do other things at the same time, such as play the game or surf the net.  This week I'm averaging 12.15 slides.  It's only a short chapter too (about 100 slides) but with only 41 done I'm not sure if I'll hit my self-imposed deadline of uploading on monday night. 

I think part of it is I am so close to sending the second wave to university and getting started on Edward's story, I just want to get that done.  I am really looking forward to getting the kids to uni and having the plot start to take off again.  I don't want to say too much, but when my readers figure out what is going on I want there to be gasps, gasps I tell you, and shouts at the screen of "Nooooo."  You'll probably all find it very anti-climactic now, but there you go. 

With the boys at uni I can start thinking more about the BC too.  I still have two spaces left, so I'm hoping that there will be two more volunteers when the next chapter goes up, because Theo is in it and everyone can see how yummy he is.

I've also been procrastinating by re-colouring some of the eyes I made last year.

Anyway, I think that's enough procrastination for now.  Back to the writing.

...of secuROM.  Yay!  I finally took the plunge and removed the blasted programme, and I can't tell you how good it feels.  I downloaded the removal tool from a link at Simmers Against SecuROM because I really don't feel comfortable editing the registry myself, and it appears to have worked: there is no trace of SuckuROM on my pc any more. 

I've been a busy bee sim wise too.  I've planned the next interlude and made a start writing it, and although I've not got as much written as I would like, it's only a small piece so should be up sometime in the next week.  It will be the cover for this that will take more time I think, because I'm going to play around a bit more with PSP.  I have an idea of what I want, I just need to do it.

I've also nearly finished the spares rotation: I just have the uni houses to play.  I've cheated in a few, rather than play them all the way through the five days because it was taking so long and there wasn't anything I wanted to do with them this time around.  Anyway, there were lots of birthdays and so I have lots of pictures of spare spawn to share with you...

Sorry about all the pictures, but I'm really not sure how I'm going to work everything that has happened with the spares into the story yet, and I wanted to share them with you all.

Blooming Windows grr. 

I spent a sizeable chunk of yesterday planning my next chapter.  My planning involves setting up a new folder on my desktop called chapwhatevershort, I take off the auto arrange but keep it snapped to grid.  Into this I put the snapshots I am going to use in the order I plan on using them.  I then use this order for finding my thumbnails and putting them into Word.  I also preview the pictures in here as I am writing, and having them in order means I get a good idea of what the story will look like on the exchange. It's a bit faffy, but for me it works.

Well I didn't get the entire chapter finished yesterday, so today I open the folder up to find that Windows has completely changed the order I put everything in.  All 178 photos were in a random order, not arranged by name, not arranged by date modified, completely random.  I am not a happy bunny.  I have put the last 30 pictures in there, and now face the prospect of not only finding the correct thumbnails and putting them in order, but also re-ordering all 219 snapshots.  ARGHHH! 

As you have probably gathered chapter 12 will be another two-parter, but they have to be read together so it's probably going to take me a bit of time to write them.  I really want to try to get an interlude out too, so I might put that out first, I'm not sure depends on how the writing goes really.

Well I've been trying to work out what exactly I need to shoot in order to wrap up my latest plot line.  I know what has been going on, but my problem was how to get that across to my readers whilst making it entertaining and stopping up any holes.  Well monday night I sat down and wrote out the idea I had as to how to do it.   I ended up with three pages of notes, and hating it lol. 

Thankfully, I've had another idea, and having written it out I like it. :D  I'm now busy setting things up to film it.

Piccies )

I really must start making more progress with the spares.  I think a lot of the reason I've been so slow is I hadn't sorted out the main story line, but now that's done hopefully I can pick up the pace. :D
