Clear Priorities, Better Moodlets

[EDIT: April 27 2016] Finally, I have time to work on STM again. 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.

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.:)

PVCS vs STM “Extras” Chapters & Where to Find my Future Updates

[EDIT: March 17 2016] I am pleased to announce the completion of PVCS vs STM Football 2035, with the release of [Chapter 10: Bloopers & Lots].

The previously-released Sims diagram illustration, [Offside] is now officially Chapter 11.

While the tale is still fresh in your mind, why not attempt the [PVCS vs STM 2015 & 2035 QUIZ]?

Thank you to all fans who have followed the story from the start to finish:) If you started following this tale only recently, it’s not too late to catch up๐Ÿ˜‰

Now that I have the Completed Story (Confident +3) moodlet, I can now continue with STM 2.06(C).

Don’t forget that ALL my future project/episode updates are ONLY found on the front page of this AldoHyde.com blog.

(For the full reason, please read till the end of this entire blog post). Hopefully, I’ll have good news for you guys soon:)


Original Post: March 13 2016
The first of my “Extras” chapters of PVCS vs STM 2035, [Ch 9 – Tybalt Capp’s Exploits], is available today. While the focus is clearly on Tybalt, we will also find out what really happened to Romeo and Juliette Monty too…

I plan to release the next and last “Extras” chapter, Ch10 Bloopers, in about one week’s time, to conclude this bizarre Veronaville-centric Sims Football Epic.

**Remember: The Main STM Machinima Series is NOT cancelled.**
I will return to STM 2.06(C) once I have the “Completed Story” moodlet after finishing Ch10๐Ÿ˜‰


I have decided to streamline my Sims project UPDATES, such that for my NEW Sims side projects (alongside my long-running Main STM Machinima Series), I will announce these updates ONLY on the front page of my AldoHyde.com blog (aka “aldohyde.wordpress.com”, the blog you’re reading now).

It takes too much effort on my part to announce them on multiple external Sims sites, as my precious leisure time is better spent on constructive matters like creating the stories, instead of rolling my eyes at unnecessary drama that is rampant in certain external Sims communities.

I also strongly prefer the WordPress blog platform, as it is better-suited for processing heavy-duty image content, and is 100% within my own jurisdiction.

True fans of my work will check my updates, and watch/read the episodes/chapters no matter what platform I choose to announce or release them on. If WordPress.com does not load on their school / work internet connection, they would try again at home instead.

So, to find out what new tricks I have up my sleeve in future, remember to come back HERE, as this blog is the ONLY place with that definitive information. Who knows what my next Sims side-projects will be, and will they be weirder than PVCS vs STM?๐Ÿ˜‰

Updates: STM 2.06(C), PVCS Ch 8A, & AH’s Fav Sims Story of 2015

[EDIT: Mar 7 2016] [8C: Final Whistle & Proposal – P3] is finally up. Find out the results of Juan Caliente’s quest, and the full aftermath of the post-match proposal.

I have planned TWO more “Extras” chapters as appendices to this football tale, so stay tuned๐Ÿ˜‰

The Main STM Machinima Series is NOT cancelled. With PVCS vs STM Football so close to completion, I might as well finish it first, so I can have a strong “Completed Story” (Confident +3) moodlet to boost my mood when going back to work on STM 2.06(C).


[EDIT: Feb 29 2016] I decided to split PVCS vs STM 8B into 2 parts, so here is [8B: Final Whistle & Proposal – P2] first.


[EDIT: Feb 23 2016] The upcoming chapter 8B of PVCS vs STM is even more image-heavy than 7B, so it’s more likely to appear sometime between this weekend and next week.

(There are so MANY pictures in this part, but I decided NOT to split it into 8B and 8C) Stay tuned.


[EDIT: Feb 12 2016] [Chapter 8A – Final Whistle & Proposal – Part 1], the first part of a non-football-intensive conclusion for the Sims Football epic PVCS vs STM 2035, is ready today.


Original Post: Feb 7 2016
Overall completion of STM 2.06(C) is 35%. This also includes creating a complicated prop…

I have also started illustrating Ch 8A (Final Whistle, Post-Match Drama) of PVCS vs STM 2035. This chapter, together with 8B and 9, are almost as image-heavy as the 2nd Half (7A & 7B), but are NON-football intensive. Hopefully, 8A can be up by mid-Feb:)


A Garden of Roses - Tale of 7 Plantsims by Vpetmad - Parody Scene My favorite Sims story of 2015, A Garden of Roses by Vpetmad, had its concluding chapter published today, both on TSW and the author’s own blog.

This excellent tale of 7 Plantsims (& several other Sims supernatural types) was almost buried in the TSW Fanon Portal, where I first saw it.

I was so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the writing, that I began commenting regularly on the chapters on TSW. That says a lot, for my standards are extremely high. When AldoHyde says a story is well-written, you can be sure that it is indeed well-written.

I even found the tale inspiring enough to create my own AGOR parody, which the author has pre-approved.

If you haven’t already read AGOR, I highly recommend that you do so, while waiting for my next installments from the STM/PVCS universes.

Happy New Year! 2nd Half Kicks Off…

[EDIT: Jan 16 2016] PVCS vs STM Chapter 7B – 2nd Half Part 2, an image-intensive chapter, is finally ready.

I hope you appreciate the effort I put into these stories, especially in the images. Some of these scenes require almost as much precision as in my machinima.

PVCS vs STM will be on hiatus till mid-Feb 2016, as I plan to concentrate on STM 2.06(C) for the next few weeks.

Here is my Jan 17 The Sim’s Pen Feature Article.


[EDIT: Jan 10 2016] Good news: STM 2.06(C) is approximately 30% filmed and edited. I told you I was doing the Main STM concurrently with the PVCS vs STM Football story.

In the following week, I will continue with illustrating Chapter 7B (2nd Half Part 2) of PVCS-STM (another image-intensive chapter), and try to put it up by mid-January.

You may also read my Jan 10 The Sim’s Pen Feature Article.


[Original Post: Jan 2 2016]

Happy New Year!:) [Chapter 7A: 2nd Half – Part 1], which focuses on 46th to 64th minute of the 2035 Match, is my first completed Sims story chapter of 2016.

These 18 minutes on the pitch are bound to be football-intensive, but they also equally infused with Sim-oriented drama.

I will take a one-week break from the PVCS-STM story, to focus on STM 2.06(C) of the main STM.

After that week, I’ll go back to doing “7B: 2nd Half – Part 2”, which I expect to finish in mid-Jan 2016.

Note that the PVCS-STM story will NOT end at 7B. There are 9 chapters altogether in the 2035 version of the [Veronaville-centric football epic] of the three Sims 2 Base Game Neighborhoods.

1st Half Kicks Off; Half-Time Available Now

Merry Christmas from the STM Universe!

[Update: Dec 26 2015] Chapter 6, [Half-Time: In the Dressing Room] (LESS football intensive) is ready.

Just like what I do with the main STM Machinima episodes, I am considering breaking the next chapter, #7: 2nd Half, into two parts (7a & 7b), so they will be released faster.

I’m also going back to filming the main STM 2.06C too, simultaneously with taking the PVCS-STM screenshots:)


[Update: Dec 20 2015] I write “The Sim’s Pen” feature article on Sims Wikia on the 5th Anniversary of the Veronaville Disaster.

Sims Wikia Fanon Profiles for [Tybalt Capp], [Octavius Capp], [Horatio Monty], [Claudia Monty], [Albert Beaker] and [Juan Caliente] are now available.


Original Post: Dec 13 2015
[1st Half] of the 2035 Match is available today. The first 45 minutes on the football pitch is bound to be football-intensive, BUT it also has a significant amount of “Sims-focused” player/manager dialogues and thoughts.

Regan's Semi-Compliant Capp Life...I am taking a one-week hiatus off ALL my Sims projects, just to play my game normally, and prevent me from getting a “Burned Out” moodlet.

In the past 3 months, the only reasons why I loaded any of my Sims games were either to film STM Machinima or take screenshots for PVCS vs STM.

But during that hiatus week, I MAY still write more PVCS-STM player fanon profiles on Sims Wikia.

I will continue creating screenshots for PVCS-STM AND filming STM after Dec 20 2015. Which means, Chap 6 (Half-Time Break) is likely to be available around the Christmas period.

Kent Capp's Full Monty?The only reason why I can release the PVCS-STM chapters on an almost-weekly basis is: The story and script were already written in advance more than one month ago.

All that’s missing are the pics, which can be done in approximately 1-2 weeks. See how fast this is, compared to all the filming and editing of machinima footage?๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Like my machinima scripts, my screenshot stories are also written WAY in advance, because I never rush to complete anything. Well-written and thought-out stories are simply never done in a haste.

2035 Match: 2 hours Before the Kickoff; STM 2.06(C) Starts

[Update: Dec 8 2015] Sims Wikia Fanon Profiles for [Regan Capp] and [Kent Monty] are now available.


[Chapter 4 – Before the Kickoff] is surprisingly NON-football intensive, for the most part, except for the segment where the starting lineups are announced.

Two hours before the kickoff, tensions and mysteries brew among certain players, team managers, spectators and/or the refereeing team. We also discover a bizarre fact about the 2015 Match…

Future chapters of the 2035 Match may appear every 2-3 weeks, because I need more time to capture and process those screenshots. Static images are significantly less complicated to capture and edit than machinima footage…


I’m also starting to film STM 2.06(C), having reviewed the script carefully over the past month.

New Poll: As these are STM Alternate Universes, there may be a chance of a “2035 child” appearing in the *MAIN* STM timeline. The question is, [who is it MOST likely to be]?๐Ÿ˜‰

2035 Match: PleasantView, Capp, Summerdream, StrangeTown & Monty 20 Years Later

2035 Match[EDIT: Nov 28 2015] The [third chapter – Silo Incident & Secret Communications] is available today. It focuses on two events in between 2015-2034, one from the household of Goneril Capp, and the other from Regan Capp‘s family (NOT football intensive).

[EDIT: Nov 21 2015] The [second chapter], introducing the 2035 StrangeTown and Monty families, is ready today (NOT football-intensive).

How many simmers [guessed the 4 Team Managers correctly]?๐Ÿ˜‰


[Original Post: Nov 15 2015]

The [first chapter] of sequel to the 2015 Match is finally ready. These aren’t simply Antonio Monty’s kids from STM 2.06(B), but also the younger generation of Pleasantview and Strangetown too.

This first chapter (and the 2nd one) will be LESS football-intensive, as they introduce what happened to the families during the 2 decades that elapsed after the previous match.

You’ll also find out who are the representatives of Pleasantview and Capp/Summerdream who became the managers of Team PVCS. So you still have time to guess the Strangetown and Monty team managers Revealed in Chapter 2๐Ÿ˜‰

Please note that this 2035 Match is done SIMULTANEOUSLY with STM 2.06(C), and that the MAIN STM Machinima series is NOT cancelled.
