1. doons99p.com 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 :)
