The officially-split episode is about 30% in the works. Here is a [preview screenshot], which doesn’t count as a spoiler, since it is a long-anticipated scene that has been waiting to happen for several episodes.
If you noticed, in one of the STM 2.05(B) Bloopers, the bald man appeared on the scene too, albeit one episode too early 😉
The other Simlish machinima directors, who had been active in 2013-2014, have yet to produce any major episodes in the first three months of 2015. It is unclear whether they have stopped, or are just busy — but planning to resume their machinima projects at a slower rate than mine. Never mind if there aren’t any Simlish voiceovers in their series, the subtitles will do just great.
Machinima is a rather difficult hobby that demands a rare combination of:
(1) writing a focused storyline and script,
(2) competently producing the visuals according to plan,
(3) determination/discipline to see everything through to the finish.
It takes 1000% more effort than a screenshot story.
STM is tough because all phases of the project are done by one busy man.
In the absence of activity from other Simlish machinima directors, I have taken to reading other simmers’ screenshot stories. Maybe I should start recommending some via SimsDynamic. Or you could let me know of some that you enjoyed.
