Clear Priorities, Better Moodlets

[EDIT: June 7 2016] STM 2.06(C) is 85% complete.
Here’s [another screenshot].

Remember: STM is NOT a fairy tale of black-and-white morality, but a psychological drama full of gray areas and uneasy conundrums. NONE of my characters are moral paragons; nor are any of them “pure” evil.


[EDIT: May 27 2016] STM 2.06(C) is about 70% done.
The last elusive scene is progressing well
[Preview Screenshot]

At a fan’s request, I have also added some screenshots of “Bianca & Kent Monty’s 2035 House” to the “Lots” section of PVCS vs STM 2035: Ch 10 Bloopers & Lots. The 2035 House is a simple modification of “Bianca Monty’s Original STM House”. Have fun comparing the differences.


[EDIT: May 18 2016] I’m still working on that elusive last part of STM 2.06(C).

Meanwhile, here are screenshots of the 2035 Teens in everyday wear (for a change): [PVCS Teens] [STM Teens]

Wonder if you recall an earlier [Poll] (which is still open for voting), asking which of these 2035 Teens YOU think is MOST likely to appear in the Main STM Machinima Series ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here is a closeup of the [2035 Curious Cousins (v 2.0)].

I’m thinking of replacing the existing Curious Cousins (v 1.0) in the Main STM Machinima Series with these new faces. All of them, especially Vivian, would certainly be more tolerable to look at :p


[EDIT: May 4 2016] Good news: STM 2.06(C) is now 55% complete.
Picture previews: [Specter] [Antonio Monty]

I love the ambiguity of the Specter image, for the plot outcome can go either way ๐Ÿ˜‰

There is one more major scene left, which hasn’t been filmed yet. It was correct for me to have chosen to concentrate my energies on my own sites, and finish up PVCS vs STM 2035 first.

As much as STM originally influenced the PVCS Football Tale, the reverse is also true, especially as I’m revising some of the later STM episodes’ scripts. So if you haven’t read PVCS vs STM 2035 in full yet, *you may be missing out* on some possible “clues for future STM episodes”… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

My Focused moodlets are stronger now, so hopefully there’ll be more good news for STM soon ๐Ÿ™‚


[EDIT: April 29 2016] Strangely enough, this is the first time I attempted to take a [“posed photo” of Antonio Monty and the daycare kids].

In STM 2.06(C), the action resumes at Antonio Monty’s house… and I finally have time to resume creating the episode. 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.


Original Post: April 1 2016
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. 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 tuned ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ™‚


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.
