STM 2.07(A) – Breaking Point (P1) – 100%

Surprise! It’s 100% done ๐Ÿ˜€

– What will Bianca Monty find out about the emergency evacuation of Antonio Monty & his kids?
– How is the first day of work for the new gardeners of Specter Yard?

[STM 2.07(A) – Breaking Point – Part 1]

This part is shorter than usual, as I originally planned to do 2.07 all at once.

If you haven’t tried the Sims 2 Toddler Quizzes, do have a go.
[Pleasantview] [Strangetown]
[Veronaville] [PVCS vs STM 2035]

Unlike my previous quizzes, which are trickier because of open-ended inference, the Toddler Quizzes have a finite set of well-known correct answers.

STM 2.06(D-AU): 100%; New YT Channel Trailer

STM 2.06(D-AU), the Alternate Universe screenshot story chapter, is 100% done, and ready to be read at the STM Blog. You are strongly advised to have watched till STM 2.06(C), before you proceed.

[STM 2.06(D-AU): Ophelia’s Alternative]

I also have a [new video trailer] for my AldoHyde YouTube Channel.

The second A Garden of Roses Attackers’ Prequel Series, XXV 1279 – Making of an Alien, starts this week with the release of Chapter 1.

I hope you enjoy today’s releases ๐Ÿ™‚

STM 2.07(A) will be back in machinima format.
Stay tuned.

STM 2.06(C) – 100%

At long last, the last part of the long STM 2.06 trilogy is ready for release.

– Bianca Monty and Kent Capp discuss Strangetown’s latest scandal.
– What is Antonio Monty’s next move?
– What does Nick Grimm (the former Nervous Subject) think of Ophelia Nigmos and Ripp Grunt’s discussion?

[STM 2.06(C) – The Patriarch P3]

[Lazlo Curious’ Bad Joke: April Fools 2015]

How many simmers correctly predicted the outcome of the Nick / Ophelia / Ripp scene correctly?

This episode took longer because of PVCS vs STM Football 2015 & 2035, an (completed) ambitious screenshot story of the three Sims2 Base Game Neighborhoods, remixed in a setting that’s considered “impossible” by strict gameplay standards. Sims storytelling will be dead and monotonous if we limited ourselves to only what’s possible in “actual” gameplay :/

Before STM 2.07 (which I may end up splitting into A & B again), there will be a short screenshot story chapter, STM 2.06(D-AU), which takes place in another Alternate Universe.

That plot of STM 2.06(D-AU) is directly relevant to STM 2.06(C), but does NOT happen in the MAIN storyline. This is likely to be ready around end-June.

Thank you to all simmers / fans who take the time to watch / read my stories properly. It’s good having you guys around, for my simming journey to continue.

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.

Thank you to all fans who have followed the story from the start to finish ๐Ÿ™‚ If you started following this tale only recently, it’s not too late to catch up ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ™‚


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 Ch10 ๐Ÿ˜‰


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˜‰

STM 2.06(B) – The Patriarch 2 — 100%

[EDIT: Nov 9 2015] How many simmers guessed the “4th Racing Man” correctly?


Roadblocks have been overcome, so the results of my latest balancing act is finally ready. This is the middle part of my original long script of STM 2.06, and the overall longest episode so far. It also uses a significant amount of Sims 3 footage.

[StrangeTown Monty 2.06(B) – The Patriarch Part 2]

This episode focuses on the following Patriarchs:
– Feuding Fathers of Monte Vista & Roaring Heights
– Racing Men
– Antonio Monty

In the NEXT part, STM 2.06(C), we go back to Strangetown to see the conclusion of the sticky situation in Specter’s House…


Writing stories / making machinima is a balancing act between (what the fans want), and (what the author wants).

If there isn’t enough of (the part the author wants), there’s a risk of the author losing interest in the entire project, so neither part (not even “the part fans want”) gets produced.

In the case of premade Sims, all simmers start off with an identical sandbox. The CAS and non-canonical aspects are what makes one simmer’s show/story different from another simmer’s.

So note that [if I never did put the Racing Men in STM], the entire show might have been cancelled in early-2014. Aren’t you glad I’ve chosen an approach where I can maintain my interest in continuing the series?

As always, the show’s NOT over unless I explicitly say it is.

STM 2.06(A) – 100%

Finally, my first major Sims project of 2015 is ready for public viewing.

Conversations take place at Specter’s Yard, but who is listening? How will Bianca Monty respond after being put on the spot by Vidcund Curious?

[STM 2.06(A) – The Patriarch – Part 1]

Part A’s New Poll is about Nick Grimm. You can still guess which of the “Other 5 Racing Guys” is most likely to appear, and see how many simmers predicted Grunt’s outcome correctly.

You can see some Episode [Blooper Images] here.

There is also a new page for [Sims 4 Polls].

Hopefully Part B & C don’t take as long, as I’m more invested in the characters involved. STM 2.06(B), in particular, may seem somewhat different from the usual STM fare, but is nonetheless necessary to push the plot forward.

Thank you to everyone who checked my main blog updates, did not doubt me & stayed subscribed. Also to those who voted on the Polls, and took time to share their thoughts about the show ๐Ÿ™‚

Remember, if Hyde doesn’t SAY it’s over, the show WILL go on.
