EDIT: Sims Wikia Article for [Hyde Dynamic Science Facility] appeared on Feb 26, 2014. It gives more details about the known employees, as well as the rationale behind the Fringe aspects of STM.
An extremely busy month, with hardly any time to load Sims 2 or 3.
But I’m definitely continuing STM: 205 is an interesting continuation of 204. If you haven’t voted on the Two Polls for STM 204, they are still open. Expect more detailed updates when I have more time.
I’m still regularly uploading Racing Stuff on [my other YT channel]. This side project prevents me from losing touch with video-making.
EDIT 1: “STM Vidcund Makeover” applied to Loki Beaker & Kent Capp.
EDIT 2: STM Fanon for [Vidcund Curious] appeared on Jan 22 2014.
- I have started filming some of the easier parts of STM 205. I don’t know exactly when I’ll finish, but I’m estimating late March – April 2014.
- Since I extensively rewrote parts of STM 204 & 205, a major revision is now required for the scripts of STM 210 – 211 (or 212). If successful, the show may possibly have a more interesting ending than originally planned.
I’ve seen several well-done Pleasantview episodes these weeks, till I’ve lost track of what happens in whose show. It seems like Pleasantview’s suburban charm supercedes even that of Sunset Valley, and I completely understand why. (But it’s obvious that I’m not the “Pleasantview type”, so I’ll probably be half-hearted if I tried writing an extended tale on it.)
Are there any new takers for the “Non-Pleasantview Machinima Challenge”? As the writer, director & producer of STM, I have one less Sims show to look forward to as a viewer. The directors of my favorite Strangetown series & Veronaville series seem to be busy lately.
New takers could message me directly with links to their shows. I’m looking out for a well-written story with decent production quality. Bonus points for a new episode every 2 weeks / 1-2 months, for those of you don’t have a full-time job. If I like your show enough, I may even blog about it.
- I can start preparing the setup for STM 2.05.
- Latest Sims Wikia Fanon: [STM Erin Beaker]
- See the small banner under General Grunt’s STM 2.04 poster: on the right-hand menu on the Main Page. STM will have to be a slow (& steady) project this year.
- Even if there’s no immediate news on STM, I will still regularly update this blog with Fanon, tutorials, and other Sims stuff of note.
