Sims 4 Veronaville Series

I’ve been watching this [Sims 4 Veronaville series by ReviSIMic].

The story focuses on canonical Veronaville characters, remade in Sims 4. Its pacing is more gameplay-styled, but has a machinima-style storyline.

As the Feud is in full swing, much of the dialogue contains insults and slurs. The F and S expletives are NOT censored, so this show may not be suitable for viewers who are not comfortable with swearing.

Otherwise, this series is worth taking a look at, if you want to watch a Veronaville story🙂


Stay tuned for more progress updates on 2.07(A) AND Toddler Quizzes in my other posts.😉

Sims 2 Toddler Quizzes

See [this other post] for STM 2.07(A) updates. The show is going on, fellow simmers.

Continue reading this post for Toddler Quiz Updates.


[EDIT: Sep 22 2016] This next quiz features any significant non-premade sims / premade unborn babies who appeared in AldoHyde’s Sims Universes.

[Identify the Toddler – PVCS vs STM 2035 + Racing Men]

You ARE allowed to view the family pictures in Chapter 1 and 2 for this quiz, since you are likely to find this one more difficult than the premade sims quizzes.

For Racing Men, entering their “car surnames” alone will be accepted as full correct answers, if you don’t remember their first names😉


[EDIT: Sep 15 2016] There will be a 4th Toddler Quiz coming soon.. likely next week.

You may want to look more carefully at the pictures of the PVCS vs STM 2035 teens and other premade unborn babies

as well as the more “prominent” Racing Men – especially the ones who TALK in the Main STM.


[EDIT: Sep 9 2016] Here’s the Veronaville edition of the Toddler Quiz.

It may be easy to differentiate between a Monty and Capp toddler, but is it as easy to tell EXACTLY which canon character it is?😮

[Identify the Toddler – Sims 2 Veronaville]

I hope you enjoyed these quizzes, while waiting for me to finish this next marathon of STM 2.07(A)🙂


[Aug 30 2016] I hope you found last week’s Strangetown Toddler Quiz entertaining and challenging. This week, try the Pleasantview version.

While many of you simmers may be more familiar with Pleasantview characters, you may find the Strangetown quiz easier, because the Strangetown characters look more obviously unique😮

[Identify the Toddler – Sims 2 Pleasantview]

Note: Bella Goth is counted as a “Pleasantview sim” in these quizzes.

Click “How to Play” on the Quiz page for more clarifications.


[Aug 24 2016] If you are familiar with Sims 2 canon characters, you may want to attempt the following Quiz:

[Identify the Toddler – Sims 2 Strangetown]

Most canon sims are NOT toddlers at the start of the game, but can you identify the toddler versions of them?😛

On the quiz page, press the big green “Play” button to start the quiz. Enter the first and last name of each sim. English version canon or STM / PVCS fanon  versions of the names will be accepted as correct.

As this is a pictorial quiz with a limited set of well-known answers, the Toddler Quiz is definitely easier than the STM and PVCS quizzes, which contain mainly tricky inference questions😉

As these Quizzes were planned and prepared months in advance, my current machinima production schedule is not affected by these.😮

So I hope you enjoy the Strangetown Toddler Quiz, and stay tuned for more Toddler Quizzes of other canon neighborhoods, which will come during the waiting time for 2.07(A) to be completed.

(Thanks to Vpetmad & Sims2Player for testing the Toddler Quiz in advance🙂 )

STM 2.07(A) Progress; YT vs WordPress Comments

[EDIT: Sep 15 2016] More filming is done. That’s about 50% of the footage, assuming that I release 2.07(A) first, instead of the entire 2.07 at once. No screenshots, because it’s still the spoilery part😛

I added some notes about the “Dina Caliente Baby Parody” to my [“Canon vs Fanon” analysis article].


[EDIT: Sep 9 2016] Did some more filming… approximately 5-10% more. Just filming so far… I’m not yet at the editing phase.

No screenshots today, as these scenes may give away too many spoilers.


[EDIT: Aug 30 2016] The hardest scene in 2.07(A) is filmed, so the episode is about 20-25% done.

[Preview Screenshot #1: Antonio Monty’s briefing]


[EDIT: Aug 22 2016] STM Progress has been slow, but has NOT stopped.

[EDIT: Aug 15 2016] I have started filming the first smallest scenes of 2.07(A). Meanwhile, here’s a new Analysis Article:

[Canon vs Fanon: Staying Interested in Sims Games and Storytelling]


[EDIT: Aug 10 2016] I am now more free to resume my major Sims projects.

[EDIT: Aug 3 2016] Somewhat caught up with RL stuff over the past weeks. But I expect to become free again quite soon, to be able to resume my major Sims projects.


[EDIT: July 19 2016] A new STM Analysis article, written in response to the “correct questions” asked by a fan. It touches on some of the complexities of planning and interpreting the story.

[STM 2.05(A) – 2.06(D-AU): Magic, Science & Watcher “Intervention” in the STM Universe]


[Original Post: July 12 2016]
The script for STM 2.07(A) has been confirmed, so filming may start shortly. This installment is deliberately short, because the original 2.07 script is medium-long. I’m hoping to get this part out as soon as I can.

Thank you to everyone who read STM 2.06(D-AU), and/or watched my new YouTube Channel Trailer.

Even if you don’t have (or don’t plan to have) a WordPress account, you CAN write comments on the AU Chapters in their respective YouTube announcement videos too. You can also post comments on wordpress posts/pages without creating an account.

[This link] allows the creation of a WordPress username WITHOUT creating a blog.

I appreciate you for genuinely appreciating my work, following it to any platform I choose to take it🙂

STM 2.06(D-AU): 100%; New YT Channel Trailer

STM 2.06(D-AU), the Alternate Universe screenshot story chapter, is 100% done, and ready to be read at the STM Blog. You are strongly advised to have watched till STM 2.06(C), before you proceed.

[STM 2.06(D-AU): Ophelia’s Alternative]

I also have a [new video trailer] for my AldoHyde YouTube Channel.

The second A Garden of Roses Attackers’ Prequel Series, XXV 1279 – Making of an Alien, starts this week with the release of Chapter 1.

I hope you enjoy today’s releases🙂

STM 2.07(A) will be back in machinima format.
Stay tuned.

STM 2.06(D-AU) – 50% Done

STM 2.06(D-AU) follows directly after the official STM machinima episode 2.06(C), but it takes place in one of the Alternate Universes instead. So 2.06(D-AU) explores “what may happen if things in 2.06(C) turned out differently instead”.

2.06(D-AU) will be produced as a screenshot story chapter (hosted on the STM Blog) instead of a machinima episode.

This is the FIRST of the non-PVCS(*) “Alternate Universe” screenshot story chapters, that branches out from the Main STM Series. At this time, it is about 50% done.

Once this chapter is released, I will go back to STM 2.07(A), which will be in the usual machinima format.

These alternate universe chapters are NOT designed to confuse the fans, but to fulfill the message of 1.10 Hyde Dynamic P1, where the theme of alternate universes was first introduced. This theme will only get stronger in the later STM episodes.


(*) If you’ve seen how quickly the PVCS vs STM 2035 Chapters were released, it’s because the script had been written WAY in advance, so all that’s left are the pictures.

Since screenshots can be processed much faster than video footage, this quicker schedule also applies to most of my other screenshot story chapters.

STM 2.06(C) – 100%

At long last, the last part of the long STM 2.06 trilogy is ready for release.

– Bianca Monty and Kent Capp discuss Strangetown’s latest scandal.
– What is Antonio Monty’s next move?
– What does Nick Grimm (the former Nervous Subject) think of Ophelia Nigmos and Ripp Grunt’s discussion?

[STM 2.06(C) – The Patriarch P3]

[Lazlo Curious’ Bad Joke: April Fools 2015]

How many simmers correctly predicted the outcome of the Nick / Ophelia / Ripp scene correctly?

This episode took longer because of PVCS vs STM Football 2015 & 2035, an (completed) ambitious screenshot story of the three Sims2 Base Game Neighborhoods, remixed in a setting that’s considered “impossible” by strict gameplay standards. Sims storytelling will be dead and monotonous if we limited ourselves to only what’s possible in “actual” gameplay:/

Before STM 2.07 (which I may end up splitting into A & B again), there will be a short screenshot story chapter, STM 2.06(D-AU), which takes place in another Alternate Universe.

That plot of STM 2.06(D-AU) is directly relevant to STM 2.06(C), but does NOT happen in the MAIN storyline. This is likely to be ready around end-June.

Thank you to all simmers / fans who take the time to watch / read my stories properly. It’s good having you guys around, for my simming journey to continue.

Clear Priorities, Better Moodlets

[EDIT: June 7 2016] STM 2.06(C) is 85% complete.
Here’s [another screenshot].

Remember: STM is NOT a fairy tale of black-and-white morality, but a psychological drama full of gray areas and uneasy conundrums. NONE of my characters are moral paragons; nor are any of them “pure” evil.


[EDIT: May 27 2016] STM 2.06(C) is about 70% done.
The last elusive scene is progressing well
[Preview Screenshot]

At a fan’s request, I have also added some screenshots of “Bianca & Kent Monty’s 2035 House” to the “Lots” section of PVCS vs STM 2035: Ch 10 Bloopers & Lots. The 2035 House is a simple modification of “Bianca Monty’s Original STM House”. Have fun comparing the differences.


[EDIT: May 18 2016] I’m still working on that elusive last part of STM 2.06(C).

Meanwhile, here are screenshots of the 2035 Teens in everyday wear (for a change): [PVCS Teens] [STM Teens]

Wonder if you recall an earlier [Poll] (which is still open for voting), asking which of these 2035 Teens YOU think is MOST likely to appear in the Main STM Machinima Series😉

Here is a closeup of the [2035 Curious Cousins (v 2.0)].

I’m thinking of replacing the existing Curious Cousins (v 1.0) in the Main STM Machinima Series with these new faces. All of them, especially Vivian, would certainly be more tolerable to look at :p


[EDIT: May 4 2016] Good news: STM 2.06(C) is now 55% complete.
Picture previews: [Specter] [Antonio Monty]

I love the ambiguity of the Specter image, for the plot outcome can go either way😉

There is one more major scene left, which hasn’t been filmed yet. It was correct for me to have chosen to concentrate my energies on my own sites, and finish up PVCS vs STM 2035 first.

As much as STM originally influenced the PVCS Football Tale, the reverse is also true, especially as I’m revising some of the later STM episodes’ scripts. So if you haven’t read PVCS vs STM 2035 in full yet, *you may be missing out* on some possible “clues for future STM episodes”…😮

My Focused moodlets are stronger now, so hopefully there’ll be more good news for STM soon🙂


[EDIT: April 29 2016] Strangely enough, this is the first time I attempted to take a [“posed photo” of Antonio Monty and the daycare kids].

In STM 2.06(C), the action resumes at Antonio Monty’s house… and I finally have time to resume creating the episode. Please see the rest of this post for what other Sims stories you can read in the meantime.


[EDIT: April 12 2016] See STM 2.06(B) page for TWO new bloopers, which I deliberately held back until PVCS vs STM 2035’s Chapter 8B was released.

Finally surpassed 1000 subscribers on my Sims YouTube channel.

This milestone took a while to achieve, as STM is *not* of mainstream subject matter, and is written predominantly in the spirit of the Knowledge Aspiration (instead of Popularity).

Thank you to all fans who stayed subscribed, did not doubt me, checked my blog updates, and took the time to read/watch my work properly. I hope to resume work on STM very soon.


Original Post: April 1 2016
Just to remind you that the Main STM Machinima Series is **NOT** cancelled. I have been busy with some RL stuff, and will get back to creating the show as soon as I am able to. Hopefully I can continue creating STM 2.06(C) in mid-April (it is still 35%++ done…)

Good thing that I’ve decided that my topmost priority, in terms of Sims stuff, is to create shows/stories. With all unnecessary drama / distractions / expectations (from those who are preoccupied with how my influence may benefit / threaten them, instead of having the courtesy to read / watch my work properly) removed, it’s easier for me to get the Focused and Inspired moodlets necessary for such a complex task.

I appreciate my true audience — the ones of you who genuinely appreciate my shows and stories — because you take the time to watch / read my stuff properly. You are the ones who add positive value to my simming experience, and keep me determined to continue the show.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t read my recently-completed co-written PVCS vs STM 2035, and/or Vpetmad’s latest AGOR prequel spinoff, Rufus Lowell: Werewolf of Sim State, these may possibly tide you over till I’m done with the latest STM episode.

Finally, this post is NOT an April Fools’ joke, because I, Dr Hyde, do not waste my time with such jokes, and expect others to NOT to waste my time with needless drama.

Once again, thank you for checking out my updates, exclusively found on this blog. I appreciate it.🙂
