Completed: Goals of Daniel Pleasant (GODP)

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

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


June 23 2017: The [NEW PVCS vs STM 2015/2035 Quiz] is ready. Like the STM Machinima Quiz last week, it replaces its previous iteration, and is tuned to be significantly easier.

I will be opening a new blog post in the coming weeks, hopefully sooner, to announce percentage updates on STM 2.08(A). The scripts are feasible, and the show goes on ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you everyone who has been catching up on my updates, and/or reading/watching my work! ๐Ÿ˜€

For those of you who want Bonus Points: Simmers who are familiar enough with the Hyde Dynamic (GTR98) Racing Men, you MAY stand a chance at the [Racing Men to Home Track Matching Quiz] or even the [Racing Men to Car Numbers Matching Quiz].

Of course, simmers were not my primary audience for these two quizzes, but they are definitely answerable by anyone who looks at the correct pages on the [GTR98 Unofficial Site] or have [watched my races] ๐Ÿ˜‰


June 17 2017: I’ve made a [NEW STM Quiz], containing plot material up to episode 2.07(B). It replaces the previous STM Quiz, and is tuned to be significantly easier.

I’ll be doing something similar to the PVCS 2015/2035 Quiz. You’ll see it sometime next weekend.


June 9 2017: This three-month series is completed today, with [Extra 2: Bloopers & Lots] and the [GODP Quiz].

This quiz is easier than my previous ones. In fact, I am working on creating new quizzes for both the STM Machinima Series AND PVCS vs STM 2015/2035, to make them easier ๐Ÿ˜›

So watch this space for the new quizzes, as I return to creating the STM Machinima episodes.

Thank you to everyone who had been reading and/or commenting faithfully on the entire GODP series ๐Ÿ˜€


June 2 2017: Daniel does a great deal of soul-searching in the concluding chapter, [GODP #12]. How will he act as a result of the strong moodlets after the 2035 Match?

Next week, we’ll have GODP Bloopers and the GODP Quiz.

I will continue making STM 2.08(A) after that (yes, I have already started… a little.)


May 27 2017: In [GODP #11], we step into Daniel’s private thoughts during the 2035 Match. What does he think of the younger generation of players, especially the son of his old age?

The concluding story chapter, #12, will be available next week.


May 12 2017: In [GODP #10], what “cards” or “injuries” may there be, as Daniel and teen Lucy Burb handle TWO toddlers over 90 minutes? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I’ll be having a one-week break, so GODP #11 appears in two weeks’ time. Meanwhile, keep reading and commenting ๐Ÿ™‚

May 5 2017: In [GODP #9], we find out why the Pleasant house was so quiet in the previous chapter… and how peaceful Daniel’s new life is.

Thank you to everyone who has been reading and/or commenting. It’s always heartening to feel the support even for the smaller projects ๐Ÿ™‚

April 28 2017: In [GODP #8], Daniel races against the clock… can he make it? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Veronaville Polls have been added today, so go [vote for what happened in your Sims 2 game] ๐Ÿ™‚

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?

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˜€
