Simtasia: An Epic

Over the past few months I've been working on a new Sims 3 series that I have called 'Simtasia: An Epic'.  The idea came to me when I was deciding whether to continue with 'Sunset Valley' or not.  I find all of the worlds interesting and I wanted to include a number of characters, settings and storylines that exist outside of Sunset Valley.  So, why not write a series that includes all of them?

'Simtasia' will be set in every available world in the game.  The first season focuses mainly on Sunset Valley and Bridgeport, but we will see other worlds too.  Al Simhara features in the very first episode, albeit 9000 years ago!  You can see why I called it Simtasia, essentially it is the sims world as we know it. 

As for characters, of course I cannot include all of them in a meaningful way.  So, I have selected a few key sims from every world to be our major characters - our heroes and our villains - but many, if not all sims will feature as background or minor characters.

So what's the premise of this epic?  We learn in the first episode of an ancient prophecy that reveals the coming of a very powerful sim with the capacity to destroy or save the world, depending on your point of view.  So, those who see her as a hero want to protect her, others plan to erase her.  And who is this prodigious sim?  We'll have to wait and see but she resides in Sunset Valley.

I have released a very small preview of the new series which I hope gives you a little taste of the series to come.


Making machinima with The Sims 3 is becoming much easier with the availability of custom animations.  I find it a quicker process than with The Sims 2 and I am loving it.  I can't wait to bring you the first episode in 2013 :)


  1. Can't wait!!! I know its going to be awesome!

  2. Even though I'm not a huge sims 3 fan, I'm looking forward to seeing this.

    But I have a few questions.
    1. How many seasons will you do?

    2. How will you handle the different "years" of the neighborhoods? B/c don, the caliente sisters, and the pleasants appear as young adults and bella and mortimer are kids.

    3. Who will be the key sim(s) you'll focus on from each neighborhood? (I listed the towns below)

    (Sunset Valley, Twinbrooke, Appaloosa Plains, Starlight Shores, Moonlight Falls, Riverview, Barnacle Bay, Hidden Springs, Lunar Lakes, Lucky Palms, and Sunlit Tides)

  3. And Al Simhara, Shang Simala and Champ les Sims too ;-)

  4. Please don't make the key sim:

    Victoria Andrews
    Claire Ursine
    Agnes Crumplebottom
    Cornelia Goth
    Jamie Jolina
    Judy Bunch

  5. Agnes Cumplebottom-ok, but why not Cornelia Goth?? Her husband is strange, but she's not! And it'll be cool to watch a life of small Bella <3

  6. I bet it's Bella Goth or Bachelor, whatever you call her.
