2.07(B) Contest CLUES; Surprise New Extra for PVCS vs STM

[EDIT: Jan 12 2017] The Contest Deadline has been extended to Sun Jan 22 2017, 2359h UTC/GMT.

There have been some good attempts for the Contest, but none have hit the bullseye yet. See the [YT Comment Feed] and/or the [2.07 100% Announcement Post] for the attempts and my responses to them — at this time of writing, you’re still not too late ๐Ÿ˜‰


Original Post: Jan 5 2017

As some of you have given me feedback about the STM 2.07(B) Contest being too difficult, here are some clues:

1. Consider the digits not by themselves, but in groups.
2. There’s a good reason why the numbers are arranged in THAT specific order.

3. NEITHER Sims / STM Fans NOR GTR98 fans have ANY advantage to answer this question correctly. However, Fringe fans may have a slight, but NOT significant advantage.
4. Think about the type of show that STM is…

If this quiz is REALLY so difficult… it is a great achievement indeed to be declared the winner ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Please post your [responses in the correct post] by the same closing date ๐Ÿ˜‰


Here’s a surprise [new “Extra” for PVCS vs STM]. Have YOU tried recreating any Sims characters in OTHER video games? ๐Ÿ˜›

I’m still confirming the script for 2.08 and the rest of the STM machinima series. This will take a while, because major revisions are required for my early scripts, before I can start filming 2.08.

STM 2.07(B) – 100% – Contest Question

Happy New Year! ๐Ÿ˜€ Here is the fully completed STM 2.07(B), which is about the same length as Part (A).

Kent Capp crashes a Monty sibling reunion. Ajay Loner and Erin Beaker reflect on the “Bella Goth Case”, and their association with the Specter Yard gardeners…

Watch Now: [STM 2.07(B) – Breaking Point – Part 2]

**Spoiler Alert** – Do NOT click the Polls and Bloopers until you’ve watched the episode in full!

[Episode Bloopers]


2.07(B) CONTEST QUESTION:

What is the significance of the series of digits (everything except “555”) in Hyde’s phone number? Like everything else in STM, the correct answer is NOT as straightforward as it looks, so some thinking out of the box is required.

The FIRST viewer(**) to give the FULL specific correct answer, phrased to my satisfaction, earlier than Sun Jan 15 22 2017, 2359h UTC/GMT, will be publicly credited in the next episode, STM 2.08.

All answers are to be submitted publicly in EITHER:

(1) YouTube Comments of the 2.07(B) video, OR
(2) THIS WordPress Blog post: “2.07(B) – 100%”

Answers posted in the wrong places, ie. anywhere else, won’t count.

Please ensure that you submit your answer under a name/pseudonym that you are comfortable being credited as.

(**) I reserve the right to disqualify any answer which is not fully to my satisfaction, or from individuals who remain on my private blacklist. If I replied to any of your comments *within* the year 2016, it’s a good sign that you’re in the clear ๐Ÿ˜‰

Merry Christmas, STM 2.07(B) Contest over New Year weekend

[EDIT: Dec 27 2016] STM 2.07(B) is more than 90% complete.

If it continues to go well, the new episode, and its associated contest, are very likely to appear over the New Year Weekend, as planned ๐Ÿ™‚ Stay tuned ๐Ÿ˜€


Original Post: Dec 23 2016

STM 2.07(B) is about 80% filmed and edited.

See [Preview Screenshot 3] – everyone knows such a scene is “inevitable”, but not necessarily how it turns out…

There will be a CONTEST based on the new episode over the New Year weekend. Please be sure to tune in to STM 2.07(B) as soon as you are available…

and answer the question in that Video Description as precisely as possible, over public comments on (the YouTube video) OR (the upcoming WordPress post “2.07(B) 100%”) ONLY.

The first viewer of neutral/good standing, whose answer is phrased to my satisfaction, shall be credited in STM 2.08.

Till then, prepare yourself to enjoy this holiday season, for 2017, and for this little contest over the New Year weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Loner Household & the Windmark (Beaker) couple wishes all Sims Fans a Merry Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

Ajay Loner & Erin Beaker as Santa & Mrs Claus, James & Susan Windmark on the couch, Jane Doe by the Christmas tree

This exact scene is extremely unlikely to be in 2.07(B), but it does give some ideas… ๐Ÿ˜‰

STM 2.07(B) – Progress %

[EDIT: Dec 16 2016] The show is about 60% filmed and edited.

No new screenshots today, since spoilers should not be included ๐Ÿ˜›

As 2016 draws to a close, there’s a decent chance that I MAY be able to complete the episode in time for a Jan 2017 release. Meanwhile, keep your eyes peeled…


[EDIT: Dec 4 2016] The show is about 45% filmed and edited.

Here’s another shot: [Preview Screenshot 2].


Original Post: Nov 22 2016

Filming for STM 2.07(B) has begun. This part will also be short, because the original entire 2.07 was never a long episode to begin with.

Here is [Preview Screenshot 1].

Please remember that the “Bella Goth (Jane Doe) Case” is NOT about Bella’s personal story, but focuses on how Ajay Loner and Erin Beaker handle the situation. STM is a psychological drama, not a fringin’ soap opera ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I’m glad you enjoyed 2.07(A) ๐Ÿ™‚
While waiting, do check out my other episodes, sims stories and quizzes on the [STM Site].

STM 2.07(A) – Breaking Point (P1) – 100%

Surprise! It’s 100% done ๐Ÿ˜€

– What will Bianca Monty find out about the emergency evacuation of Antonio Monty & his kids?
– How is the first day of work for the new gardeners of Specter Yard?
– How can Kent Capp‘s dream be interpreted?

[STM 2.07(A) – Breaking Point – Part 1]

This part is shorter than usual, as I originally planned to do 2.07 all at once.

If you haven’t tried the Sims 2 Toddler Quizzes, do have a go.
[Pleasantview] [Strangetown]
[Veronaville] [PVCS vs STM 2035]

Unlike my previous quizzes, which are trickier because of open-ended inference, the Toddler Quizzes have a finite set of well-known correct answers.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚


Stay tuned for more progress updates on 2.07(A) AND Toddler Quizzes in my other posts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰


[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? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

[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) ๐Ÿ™‚


[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 ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

[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? ๐Ÿ˜›

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

As these Quizzes were planned and prepared months in advance, my current machinima production schedule is not affected by these. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ )
