2.07(B) Contest CLUES; Surprise New Extra for PVCS vs STM

[EDIT: Jan 23 2017] The contest deadline is up, and nobody won. The answers will be revealed in 2.08 ๐Ÿ˜›

I’m still confirming the script for 2.08 and the rest of the STM machinima series. This will take a while. Some of these scripts were written as early as 2012-2013. As the show has evolved over the years, major revisions are required for these scripts, before I can start filming 2.08.


[EDIT: Jan 12 2017] The Contest Deadline has been extended to Sun Jan 22 2017, 2359h UTC/GMT.

There have been some good attempts for the Contest, but none have hit the bullseye yet. See the [YT Comment Feed] and/or the [2.07 100% Announcement Post] for the attempts and my responses to them — at this time of writing, you’re still not too late ๐Ÿ˜‰


Original Post: Jan 5 2017

As some of you have given me feedback about the STM 2.07(B) Contest being too difficult, here are some clues:

1. Consider the digits not by themselves, but in groups.
2. There’s a good reason why the numbers are arranged in THAT specific order.

3. NEITHER Sims / STM Fans NOR GTR98 fans have ANY advantage to answer this question correctly. However, Fringe fans may have a slight, but NOT significant advantage.
4. Think about the type of show that STM is…

If this quiz is REALLY so difficult… it is a great achievement indeed to be declared the winner ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Please post your [responses in the correct post] by the same closing date ๐Ÿ˜‰


Here’s a surprise [new “Extra” for PVCS vs STM]. Have YOU tried recreating any Sims characters in OTHER video games? ๐Ÿ˜›

Sims 2 Toddler Quizzes

See [this other post] for STM 2.07(A) updates. The show is going on, fellow simmers.

Continue reading this post for Toddler Quiz Updates.


[EDIT: Sep 22 2016] This next quiz features any significant non-premade sims / premade unborn babies who appeared in AldoHyde’s Sims Universes.

[Identify the Toddler – PVCS vs STM 2035 + Racing Men]

You ARE allowed to view the family pictures in Chapter 1 and 2 for this quiz, since you are likely to find this one more difficult than the premade sims quizzes.

For Racing Men, entering their “car surnames” alone will be accepted as full correct answers, if you don’t remember their first names ๐Ÿ˜‰


[EDIT: Sep 15 2016] There will be a 4th Toddler Quiz coming soon.. likely next week.

You may want to look more carefully at the pictures of the PVCS vs STM 2035 teens and other premade unborn babies

as well as the more “prominent” Racing Men – especially the ones who TALK in the Main STM.


[EDIT: Sep 9 2016] Here’s the Veronaville edition of the Toddler Quiz.

It may be easy to differentiate between a Monty and Capp toddler, but is it as easy to tell EXACTLY which canon character it is? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

[Identify the Toddler – Sims 2 Veronaville]

I hope you enjoyed these quizzes, while waiting for me to finish this next marathon of STM 2.07(A) ๐Ÿ™‚


[Aug 30 2016] I hope you found last week’s Strangetown Toddler Quiz entertaining and challenging. This week, try the Pleasantview version.

While many of you simmers may be more familiar with Pleasantview characters, you may find the Strangetown quiz easier, because the Strangetown characters look more obviously unique ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

[Identify the Toddler – Sims 2 Pleasantview]

Note: Bella Goth is counted as a “Pleasantview sim” in these quizzes.

Click “How to Play” on the Quiz page for more clarifications.


[Aug 24 2016] If you are familiar with Sims 2 canon characters, you may want to attempt the following Quiz:

[Identify the Toddler – Sims 2 Strangetown]

Most canon sims are NOT toddlers at the start of the game, but can you identify the toddler versions of them? ๐Ÿ˜›

On the quiz page, press the big green “Play” button to start the quiz. Enter the first and last name of each sim. English version canon or STM / PVCS fanon  versions of the names will be accepted as correct.

As this is a pictorial quiz with a limited set of well-known answers, the Toddler Quiz is definitely easier than the STM and PVCS quizzes, which contain mainly tricky inference questions ๐Ÿ˜‰

As these Quizzes were planned and prepared months in advance, my current machinima production schedule is not affected by these. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

So I hope you enjoy the Strangetown Toddler Quiz, and stay tuned for more Toddler Quizzes of other canon neighborhoods, which will come during the waiting time for 2.07(A) to be completed.

(Thanks to Vpetmad & Sims2Player for testing the Toddler Quiz in advance ๐Ÿ™‚ )

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.

While the tale is still fresh in your mind, why not attempt the [PVCS vs STM 2015 & 2035 QUIZ]?

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˜‰

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.

Happy New Year! 2nd Half Kicks Off…

[EDIT: Jan 16 2016] PVCS vs STM Chapter 7B – 2nd Half Part 2, an image-intensive chapter, is finally ready.

I hope you appreciate the effort I put into these stories, especially in the images. Some of these scenes require almost as much precision as in my machinima.

PVCS vs STM will be on hiatus till mid-Feb 2016, as I plan to concentrate on STM 2.06(C) for the next few weeks.

Here is my Jan 17 The Sim’s Pen Feature Article.


[EDIT: Jan 10 2016] Good news: STM 2.06(C) is approximately 30% filmed and edited. I told you I was doing the Main STM concurrently with the PVCS vs STM Football story.

In the following week, I will continue with illustrating Chapter 7B (2nd Half Part 2) of PVCS-STM (another image-intensive chapter), and try to put it up by mid-January.

You may also read my Jan 10 The Sim’s Pen Feature Article.


[Original Post: Jan 2 2016]

Happy New Year! ๐Ÿ™‚ [Chapter 7A: 2nd Half – Part 1], which focuses on 46th to 64th minute of the 2035 Match, is my first completed Sims story chapter of 2016.

These 18 minutes on the pitch are bound to be football-intensive, but they also equally infused with Sim-oriented drama.

I will take a one-week break from the PVCS-STM story, to focus on STM 2.06(C) of the main STM.

After that week, I’ll go back to doing “7B: 2nd Half – Part 2”, which I expect to finish in mid-Jan 2016.

Note that the PVCS-STM story will NOT end at 7B. There are 9 chapters altogether in the 2035 version of the [Veronaville-centric football epic] of the three Sims 2 Base Game Neighborhoods.

1st Half Kicks Off; Half-Time Available Now

Merry Christmas from the STM Universe!

[Update: Dec 26 2015] Chapter 6, [Half-Time: In the Dressing Room] (LESS football intensive) is ready.

Just like what I do with the main STM Machinima episodes, I am considering breaking the next chapter, #7: 2nd Half, into two parts (7a & 7b), so they will be released faster.

I’m also going back to filming the main STM 2.06C too, simultaneously with taking the PVCS-STM screenshots ๐Ÿ™‚


[Update: Dec 20 2015] I write “The Sim’s Pen” feature article on Sims Wikia on the 5th Anniversary of the Veronaville Disaster.

Sims Wikia Fanon Profiles for [Tybalt Capp], [Octavius Capp], [Horatio Monty], [Claudia Monty], [Albert Beaker] and [Juan Caliente] are now available.


Original Post: Dec 13 2015
[1st Half] of the 2035 Match is available today. The first 45 minutes on the football pitch is bound to be football-intensive, BUT it also has a significant amount of “Sims-focused” player/manager dialogues and thoughts.

Regan's Semi-Compliant Capp Life...I am taking a one-week hiatus off ALL my Sims projects, just to play my game normally, and prevent me from getting a “Burned Out” moodlet.

In the past 3 months, the only reasons why I loaded any of my Sims games were either to film STM Machinima or take screenshots for PVCS vs STM.

But during that hiatus week, I MAY still write more PVCS-STM player fanon profiles on Sims Wikia.

I will continue creating screenshots for PVCS-STM AND filming STM after Dec 20 2015. Which means, Chap 6 (Half-Time Break) is likely to be available around the Christmas period.

Kent Capp's Full Monty?The only reason why I can release the PVCS-STM chapters on an almost-weekly basis is: The story and script were already written in advance more than one month ago.

All that’s missing are the pics, which can be done in approximately 1-2 weeks. See how fast this is, compared to all the filming and editing of machinima footage? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Like my machinima scripts, my screenshot stories are also written WAY in advance, because I never rush to complete anything. Well-written and thought-out stories are simply never done in a haste.

2035 Match: 2 hours Before the Kickoff; STM 2.06(C) Starts

[Update: Dec 8 2015] Sims Wikia Fanon Profiles for [Regan Capp] and [Kent Monty] are now available.


[Chapter 4 – Before the Kickoff] is surprisingly NON-football intensive, for the most part, except for the segment where the starting lineups are announced.

Two hours before the kickoff, tensions and mysteries brew among certain players, team managers, spectators and/or the refereeing team. We also discover a bizarre fact about the 2015 Match…

Future chapters of the 2035 Match may appear every 2-3 weeks, because I need more time to capture and process those screenshots. Static images are significantly less complicated to capture and edit than machinima footage…


I’m also starting to film STM 2.06(C), having reviewed the script carefully over the past month.

New Poll: As these are STM Alternate Universes, there may be a chance of a “2035 child” appearing in the *MAIN* STM timeline. The question is, [who is it MOST likely to be]? ๐Ÿ˜‰
