STM 2.07(B) – Progress %

[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😮

I’m glad you enjoyed 2.07(A)🙂
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😀

– 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🙂


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: Nov 6 2016] There has been some progress on STM. I won’t say exactly how much, but it’s definitely MORE than 50% completed (overall: filming + editing).

For now, take a look at this [Preview Screenshot #2: Gardeners of Specter Yard]😉 … and stay on your toes for the inevitable😮

[EDIT: Oct 29 2016] I didn’t have an easy month:/ It was impossible to do any creative projects that require strong Focused moodlets. But I have no intention of abandoning STM, so no worries there.

However, I got back into Sims 4, and started experimenting anew. I’ve updated my [2015 post on Emotions] with some new 2016 info.

I’ve also modified some existing lots, and am in the process of creating some new ones. I’m still contemplating putting some of them onto the Sims 4 Gallery. If I do, I’ll announce them here.

[EDIT: Oct 4 2016] Had to deal with some urgent RL matters over the past weeks. I’d get back to filming and editing, once I’ve reacquired my machinima momentum.

[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.

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.
