Nostonia News

Every week I get questions about Nostonia asking when I'll finally finish it! I have been working on this murder mystery of mine for over 2 years! The final episode is about 75% finished. Thank-you to all those Nostonia fans who have been very patient with me while a sidetrack on to other projects. I will have the final episode released in April. I will be releasing just one Pleasantview episode before then however.
In the meantime, I have released a new trailer for Nostonia, which does have a little bit of previously unseen footage. You can see it on my website for now, I will be uploading it to youtube later in the week. I hope you enjoy! And remember to vote on my Nostonia poll if you haven't already, currently it seems that most of you believe Katlyn did it, well maybe she did ... maybe she didn't :p - not long to go before the murderer is revealed :o

*EDIT* The trailer is now available for viewing on youtube.

Happy Valentine's?

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? My partner and I don't. We don't go in for the 'commercialisation' of love. But, this didn't stop me from making a little video for the community showcase Valentines competition held by the sims 2 official site last year. I was lucky enough to have my vid featured on their home page for a week! So I thought it was timely to have another look at it.

Of course it was a good excuse to feature one of my favourite songs 'Smooth Operator'. I spent a lot of time on my Sade sim, with a picture of her on a CD I have, trying to get her just right in bodyshop - it took hours! Music clips are not my forte, but I was quite pleased with this, it was fun to make.

So, if you have a few minutes this Valentine's Day take another look at it :)

New website design

I have finally finished my new look website! Well, I say "finished" but in fact it will always be a work in progress. I made this website from scratch using dreamweaver and I have learnt a lot about html, css and even a little about php! If it sounds like I'm speaking gobbledygook, just ignore me and check it out for yourself.

This new design has Pleasantview 1.4 available for streaming. All you have to do is navigate to the Pleasantview 1.4 page and you can watch it! Some of you may know that this episode was taken down from Youtube after someone complained about its content. So now it's readily available for viewing on my website.

In the future I plan to add more pages with tips for making machinima. I will also be adding some more stories to the Pleasantview 'stories' section. At the moment the only story available is 'Dina & Mortimer's Honeymoon', I'll reveal more about coming stories at a later date. First I plan to have a rest from web design and stick with finishing off Nostonia.

So be sure to check out the new look website. Let me know what you think :)
