'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 :)
