Character Doubles in STM

 Default Kent Capp is more likely to be interpreted as a double for Nervous Subject, since they both have similar positions in their default family portraits, as the single man living with a married couple (who look like doubles of each other too).

But in STM, Kent’s resemblance to Vidcund is more pronounced, both in terms of physical appearance and in social status.

To top it off, their direct supervisors are also their doubles, as they have first names that rhyme with theirs (Duncan Xu & Trent Ivanov), possible because I am more used to refer to these cars (oops, I mean “guys”) by their last names alone. This extra doubling is another reason (besides the idea that they are both naturalized into their adopted culture) why I chose not to make the Two Men go by standard Chinese or Russian first names.

Similarly, the default Bianca Monty is more likely to be compared with Cassandra Goth, as Family sims who may have some tendencies towards Knowledge too.

But in STM, Bianca’s double is Erin Beaker, another intelligent and strong woman with a reasonably close relationship with her brother. In STM episodes which do not focus directly on Bianca, the spotlight is on Erin instead.

Which single father is holding up more successfully? General Buzz Grunt or Antonio Monty? Are they another pair of doubles?

In an earlier post, I have mentioned that I also changed the computer I use for Sims, and restarted the STM neighborhoodboth of which take up the time I would have used for video production. I  have persisted in this project despite all the odds against me getting anything done, in a year that I have known in advance to be busy.

Some parts of 2.05(B) are very experimental. The dialogue was notoriously difficult to finalize, as I rewrote the script at least twice…
