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(B) – 55% – Screenshot Preview

STM 2.06(B) is more challenging than 2.06(C), and I proceeded with the more difficult part first. Now at 55% completion, there is a decent-to-good chance for the full episode to be available in late October or early November.

2.06(B) is the middle segment of my original long script for STM 2.06. This part contains a mixture of Sims 2 & Sims 3 scenes, and focuses more on Veronaville than Strangetown.

Here are the two (of the three) types of scenes to expect in this part:


Sims 2: Baptiste, the Red Racing Man in Hyde Dynamic Veronaville, or “The Referee” in the [Football / Soccer Match Screenshot Story], which takes place in a STM Alternate Universe. This “Sports Live Update” Parody may tide you over till I’ve completed the main STM episode.

WHO is he talking to in this scene… and why?
There’s still time for you to guess in the “Other 5 Racing Men” [Poll]

Sims 3: This Consort & Contessa Capp screenshot is more of a Blooper, since mobile phones were not commonplace in the Watcher World in the late 1970s.

I will show you the 3rd type of scene in a later post, when I’m closer to finishing.

Remember, as long as I’m in good health, the show is NOT over unless I explicitly say so. Take care, and thank you for checking my updates.
