I was working on the next update for Simtopi tonight, but had to stop because a) I'm missing an outfit and I needed it to continue shooting a scene I started a long time ago. I think I deleted it in my last minor purge. b) It's 2:30AM and I'm sleepy. :p

As you know I've been working on a world in Sims 3 with Create A World (and having a ridiculous good time with it). I feel like I've gotten much of the personality of the world down now and I've given it a name: Auberon

Coming up with a name for the city was difficult. In the end, I wanted the name to be a tribute to the Maxis world but the only name I could come up with that I thought would suit this place was Oberon. I gave the city the alternate spelling though. 

Oberon is King of the Fairies. I made this world to prepare for Supernatural, which will introduce to sims 3 fairies. :D (I wonder if the Summerdreams will be in that EP. That would kind of rule.)

Anyway, if you've been following me on Tumblr, you've seen these. But here's the official LJ picspam of the work in progress. Most of these were taken in Create A World. 

About 30 more pictures this way... )

Previously recorded yesterday, me in Create A World, building on a yet unnamed town. I paint rocks, plant shrubberies, fun exciting stuff. I even got a drabble out of it! :D

I was working on this hood a while ago, CAW started getting all crashy, lost the world, didn't go back to it, etcetera, etc. I got the bug to start building this hood again. :D

Just a small gift. (Though frankly, I should have shared them long ago). Whether you're on livejournal, tumblr or twitter, and for whatever reason you do, thank you for following me. ♥

This is the livestream of my Sim Staging process I recorded from today. I recreated a little bit of Chapter 29.

I love doing these but I tend to get very nervous and there were things I've actually forgotten to talk about (like using the Schizophrenia box with Skell's simPE posebox adjustment tutorial to turn heads while doing a game animation siiiiigh). But I figure maybe it was too ambitious to go into everything and I'll probably do a more detailed  live posing workshop thing later on where everyone can throw in ideas. 

Sorry if this seemed like a boring mess. Chat as usual was fun, but I missed a lot of it. Sorry about that. I wish there was a way to save livestream chats. 


Thank you to everyone who came out!

Anyway, as promised, here are the links I discussed in the vid, after the cut.

Tomorrow night (edit: Tuesday, June 12) at about 6pm EDT (10pm GMT) I’ll be livestreaming my process for setting up a story scene for Sims 2. I’ll be going over set staging, posing, lighting and picture composition (sort of an addendum to this tutorial). Maybe someone might pick up a tip or two and hopefully I’ll learn something new from the viewers too!

Please let me know in advance if there’s anything you’d like me to cover, as I need a to do a little bit of prep work and my game can load slow. XD

Hope to see you then!

For anyone who isn't on tumblr who might be interested, I plan on doing a Livestream on Tuesday night (about 8 or 9EST and this is depending on whether I have to work in the evening or not). I'll have a proper mic so I won't sound like I'm talking out of my armpit O_o), I'll have tunes and I'll have my game which I'll just be showing off a bit (probably just my neighbourhood and places in relation to my story)

I'll make further announcements on my Tumblr or Twitter.

Check out my Channel for past recorded videos: simtopi livestream

And do bookmark,follow, add to your RSS feed or whatever this tumblr if you're interested in seeing other livesimmers livesimming.tumblr.com.

P.S. If anyone has any suggestions for me I'm very open to them. ^_^

LivLukas and a few others over on tumblr introduced me recently to Livestreaming. I have yet to catch a live session, but I'm so fascinated. One of the reasons I love this community is being able to peek into people's games, so I hope people get in on this. :D 

Video ahead... )

I didn't really have a lot of scenic pics of Simtopi from the neighbourhood view, so this is what I did tonight.

Greetings!

As usual, I've been busy and have been living my online life through mobile devices lately. I haven't really had a lot of time to sit in front of my PC and when I do I have to get business stuff done. I've been still writing notes for the next few chapters and actually seriously thinking of having the next chapter to the end completely written before I start shooting the scenes. I'll see how this works out for me. The obvious disadvantage is that it might take a while to write, but I guess once that's done, the chapters should be updated faster. We'll see, I'm just thinking out loud at this point.

Point form, some good, some bad :p

What do you like in a Sims Story?
I've been compiling these questions for a little while now and thought I'd post them in poll form. Because people like clicking buttons. ;)

I hope this is obvious, but keep in mind that this poll has a huge Sims bias and for a reader's point of view. ;) Please answer honestly and keep all discussions respectful!

Now, on to the Poll... )

I know I said I'd have the chapter done at the end of last month. I have been busy with life, but I am still working on it. Also, a few things changed in the chapter, so those are the excuses du jour. :p
simtopi: (Default)
Well, that last week, especially the last few days, I really did try. And I might have made a lot more progress if a few nights hadn't been shot down because of work, social or babysitting obligations. And in all honesty, I hadn't found that "zone" like I had with chapter 49 and most other chapters. I think it's the Universe's way of telling me that the chapter needed more time.  :p

My goal was 2 chapters finished and published and to write out the summaries of chapter 22-38.

I accomplished getting chapter 49 published. Small yay! ;)
