Ongoing: Goals of Daniel Pleasant (GODP)

Pleasant Family Early 1980s: Jeff, Diane, Daniel, Jennifer

**StrangeTown Monty (STM) is NOT cancelled.**


April 21 2017: [GODP #7] depicts the “most familiar scenario” of the Pleasant family. How would this version be similar or different to what is typically expected?

If you haven’t already [voted for what happened in your Sims 2 game], please do so. Veronaville polls will be added next week, together with GODP #8.

The STM Scripts are close to completion, so I can start filming 2.08(A) soon, especially when we’re up to GODP #11 or #12.

Thank you all for your continued support! ๐Ÿ™‚


April 14 2017: The new [GODP #6] is slightly technical, but is nonetheless necessary. We’ll be returning to more familiar territory next week in Chapter 7.


April 7 2017: As promised, [GODP #5] is now available. How did Daniel’s new family turn out?


April 1 2017:
1. The remaining StrangeTown Monty (STM) scripts are about 75% sorted through. It’s not as easy as it looks! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

2. The production of the STM Machinima Series is officially ON HOLD

until the full run of Goals of Daniel Pleasant (GODP) – 12 chapters – is completed. So read this story if you wish to see more of my ongoing work during this period.

As much as PVCS vs STM makes “what happens during a football match” accessible to simmers, GODP aims to familiarize simmers with “what happens in the career of a footballer and coach”.

To be clear, surprising as this sounds, football is NOT truly my comfort zone, because I don’t watch it week in, week out. But with Sims2Player, the correct co-writer and consultant for football jargon, the tales in the Sims Football Universe became possible.

GODP will return next weekend with Chapter 5, when Angela and Lilith are “old enough to talk” ๐Ÿ˜‰


March 24 2017: How will Daniel get back into Mary-Sue’s good books? Find out in [GODP #4]

There will be a one-week break before GODP #5 appears. But come back next week anyway, for I have an announcement scheduled for that time.

March 17 2017: I’d never thought I’d ever use such a line to introduce a [new chapter: GODP #3]

Scoop on Daniel and Jennifer’s first attempts at their respective love lives… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

That’s because Daniel Pleasant is a Romance sim. GODP’s dominant themes of football, family and romance are very different from my comfort-zone Knowledge-sim topics in STM ๐Ÿ˜‰

There’s also an [Extra 1] to explain some of the football jargon.

March 10 2017: [GODP #2] is ready. Will young Daniel make a good first impression? ๐Ÿ˜‰

March 3 2017: The first chapter, [GODP #1], is ready.


Goals of Daniel Pleasant (GODP) is a new upcoming Sims 2 screenshot story that focuses on Daniel Pleasant‘s career as a footballer, coach and family patriarch.

Will Daniel score the “goals” he wants in his footballing career and family life?

How far will “injuries” impact his life on and off the football pitch? Will he risk being “substituted”, or worse… endure the shame of being shown the “Red Card”?

Join Daniel and his younger sister Jennifer, as their tale begins in (Sims 1) Willville. Watch the evolution of the Pleasant siblings’ attitudes to family and football, as their lives change through the decades.

The characters in GODP are the same as the ones from PVCS vs STM 2015/2035. You may wish to read at least 2035 Chapter 1 “PVCS Families” to get acquainted with this world ๐Ÿ˜›

New chapters will appear every 1-2 weeks, and will run concurrently with my planning of the next phase of **StrangeTown Monty (STM)… which is NOT cancelled.**

GODP is co-written by Sims2Player, the cowriter of PVCS vs STM 2015/2035, and a most valuable consultant for football jargon ๐Ÿ™‚

Congrats to all simmers who guessed correctly in the “mysterious Pleasantview character” Poll ๐Ÿ˜‰

See you next weekend for the first chapter! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I’ll be very excited to read another AH/S2P story, and to reading a backstory to a character who isn’t always developed beyond the ‘cheating husband’ ๐Ÿ™‚
