The Adventures in Specter’s Yard

Happy New Year! 🙂 Hopefully 2015 will be a good year for Sims storytelling, with enough time and stamina for me to complete more videos.

The Specter Yard Case will be featured for two weeks on the Sims Wikia Polls. Once again, if you prefer to vote on Wikia, please follow their rules. Update: Jan 17 2015 – Poll closed on Sims Wikia after two weeks. Please vote here on the blog poll from now onwards.

Grunt vs Specter is only the beginning of “The Adventures in Specter’s Yard” subplot of STM, as you already know that other players will be literally entering the “field” for action. The two minor plots intersect at one character (The Girl is Important. She Must Live.) The major plot of the three Veronaville Natives — their history, current prospects and the Veronaville Device — returns to the forefront.

STM 2.06’s script is ready enough for filming to start very soon.

Meanwhile, I’m enjoying Sims 4 more than I enjoyed Sims 3 in its day. Here is Prometheus Hyde, Sims4-style. While I am extremely pleased with the default blue skin tone and hair color, I would greatly appreciate the correct beard to be made available in the earliest possible Expansion Pack.

Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays from the STM Universe! 🙂
I have most of the script for STM 2.06 sorted out, except for half of one scene. Filming is likely to begin after Christmas, or after the start of the New Year.

I thought of creating STM Christmas pictures, but decided to do something else that looks good all year round.

Patriarches & Matriarch: General Buzz Grunt; PT #9 Smith; Olive Specter
Minor Plots: Loki & Erin Beaker; Vidcund Curious; Nick Grimm

I am still investigating the possibilities in Sims 4. The sims definitely look nicer than they did in Sims 3, but the hairstyles and choice of clothes’ colors are still lacking.

STM 204 Pre-Episode Goodies

STM 2.04 requires quite a bit of preparation before filming may begin. I’m targeting a December 2013 or January 2014 release. Meanwhile, here are some goodies. Enjoy.

[Olive Specter’s Sims Wikia Fanon Article] – written quite differently from all my previous articles.

– Nick Grimm is [a chip off the old block] Olive Specter.

– Break System explains the concepts of multiple Sims universes & “Quantum Entanglement” in a [mash-up parody Sims video] of the Veronaville Disaster & Fringe — made for my birthday.

This has everything to do with my newest STM banner (Bianca, Kent, Machine). Now we finally get to see how Kent Capp is like when he is dosed.

Capp Family 1988

I tend to run into time shortages at this period of the year. STM 203 is still about 30-40% done, but I will try my best to complete it.

Meanwhile, here is the family who should have been in Sims 3 Monte Vista. You will be seeing these Capps here and there in the next few STM episodes.

Go to [this page] to compare them with my corresponding “Monty Family 1988” portrait.

Free Sims Banners for YouTube OneChannel

Before starting on STM 2.02, I made a [Trailer featuring Kent Capp], for the SimsDynamic YT Channel.

– Are you a Sims Fan who wishes to have a Sims-related banner for your own YouTube channel, but may or may not have your own Sims series and/or your own graphics editor?

Currently Available in 3 Flavors:

  • Pleasantview: [Preview: See it in Action] [Download Full Graphic]
  • Strangetown: [Preview: See it in Action] [Download Full Graphic]
  • Veronaville: [Preview: See it in Action] [Download Full Graphic]
    (All Sims are portrayed in their default appearance.)
    – The full graphics are of the exact size (2120×1192)** to upload directly as the YouTube channel banner. Designing this requires one to juggle optimization for desktops, tablets & TVs all at once.

    ** YT has since changed their preferred size to (2560×1440), but (2120×1192) still works perfectly.

    – Characters not within the “minimum zone” (that appears on all resolutions & devices) will only be visible on larger screen resolutions.
    – Depending on your screen resolution, some sims on the left may be covered by your channel avatar. The higher your screen resolution, the less likely these sims are covered.

    – Suggestions are welcome, but I reserve the right to follow through with them (or not). I could consider making other Sims nhoods, or generic topics like “Goth Family” or “StrangeTown Monty”, if enough people express their interest.

    – If it’s a topic very specifically for your channel alone, your relationship score with me (like how it works in the Sims game) has to be HIGH enough.
