New Stuff!

I've been busy over the past month or two and now that Pleasantview 3.8 has been released I am ready to announce a few other things.

1. is back!  Call me indecisive (because I am) but I decided to bring my website back with a new look.  I had to refresh my website making skills, but I really enjoyed making it so it wasn't a big deal.  The good news for Pleasantview fans is that 'Dina and Mortimer's Honeymoon' and Angela's diary entry (from 3.7) are all there to see.  I have an FAQ page too which might be of interest :)

2.  I'm making a Let's Play Legacy with The Sims 2.  Some of you may have caught the pilot of a Sims 3 Let's Play that I put up a month or so ago.  Well the idea just wouldn't go away and after watching quite a few Sims 2 LPs I decided to have a go with a version of my own.

This Let's Play is also a legacy and begins with founder Stella Sterling and her trusty cat Sir Purr-A-Lot.  They move into Desiderata Valley, which I haven't really played before, so it's all new.  The aim of this legacy is for Stella to build up a family business that will be passed on with each new generation.

I will edit my footage to show the highlights of each season.  So, after the first day we will see Stella's autumn, then winter and so on.  I have started gameplay and am currently up to spring and I have to say playing The Sims 2 again is a lot of fun.  It's also useful for my machinima as I get to see more interactions and animations that could be really effective in a series.

The Trailer is available for viewing now:


3.  Simtasia: An Epic - I've also been working on a sims 3 series that is gonna be huge!  I won't reveal much in this post aside from this: it will be set in every neighbourhood in the game, and so that's why I've called it an epic.  

It will have a large cast and the storyline is rather unruly, but I'm hoping I can keep it all under control.  Due to this new series I will not continue with 'Sunset Valley'.  I know this will disappoint some but the truth is I am inspired by characters and storyline possibilities that all of the neighbourhoods offer and I wanted to branch out.  Obviously Sunset Valley will be included in this new series, so hopefully you can see some of your favourite characters and stories from the Valley :)  This series will be released early 2013, however I will upload a trailer before the new year.

Well that's it for now, thanks for reading :)


  1. Doons you are amazing!

  2. wow ... that's all I can say.


  3. Looking forward to all of these upcoming projects as well as PV 3.9!!! -Greg

  4. Wow! You have been a busy bee! I am wondering...will we ever find our why poor Mort ran away crying in the new epic of yours! Can't wait as usually...again what an awesome job you do!

  5. Oh Doons, amazing news! I'm really curious and looking foward to see your Simatasia series! :D

  6. But really, like Mareka said, will we ever find why Morty was crying? You could put the plot of Sunset Valley as a fanfic, that would be really cool!
