Opened my game up with the intention to do something story related... and ended up  having the gang just hanging around because I couldn't figure out what to do. So I decided to pose it; everyone, waiting for me to do something. ;)

Jasmine, Gabriel and Cecilia
I've been spending a bit of time on Chapter 39 lately now that I can. (mini-Yay!)  I spent way too much time making family pictures for background elements. Since they're neither spoiler or teaser, I'm sharing them now.   If you read the story, you know who these kids are. :D
one more family photo this way )

Gabriels apartment

This is the  view facing "west" of my Sim State University hood.  Right at the bottom of the pic are the University Way shops, and you can see the 3 small houses on Almond Road. The second plumbBob from the left is Gabriel's apartment.   I imagine the place to be set in a small rural town, the university being the big business there, so the neighbouring areas is country side full of farms and green space. The railroad we see here goes north to south and is surrounded by rocks and trees.

When I went in to shoot Chapter 37, I did notice a discrepancy which I guess I never noticed before. Take a look at the hood view above, and the next pic (from the chapter, no big spoilers) below the cut

I'm in a weird mood tonight so I'm sharing a teaser of sorts.

one pic this way )

Except it doesn't look all that different. >_>

[livejournal.com profile] spyroeldragon  found a skin blend set and eye edit by Leh ( post here ) so of course I had to try them. . 

4 PNGs behind the cut, I should probably be doing something more productive, blah blah blah )

Jasmine: Um, hey. Adrian is hot but he's being kind of a dick right now. Help me out here? 

Poor girl. I've been too busy making her fight zombies, her grades kind of slipped. Oops.

I went over to their dorm to play around with their CC a little bit last night and found her moaning about something or the other when I discovered that this happened somehow. So just to shut her up offer some amends, I fullfilled one of her wants and let her throw a sports party. 

+25 pics, my plumbBobs are showing... )

Yep, finally made him available for download. He's probably my most requested sim ever. I'm so happy you guys like him (and his TS3 version is included as a bonus).

I hope you enjoy the anniversary gifts, everyone. :)

 edit: I almost forgot the stats. TS2 stats are now added. :)

I was trying out these skintones and I thought I'd post a pic I took last night.  I know there are still some Gabriel fans out there.  :)

(And Chapter 26 should be up really soon, ideally tonight because I've got a crap ton to do for the rest of the week. I just need to actually finish writing it.)

Eye colours test

I like to call my game "maxis-match" even though it really isn't. It's sort of like a hybrid maxis-cartoony-realistic game, LOL. I don't know what else to call it, but I like it.   I think Nett's Eyeball edits really work for my sims and my story, but I got a little bored and wanted to play around with making my characters just a little more cartoony. So I  changed up their looks a bit tonight.

I switched up the eye colours with the Easy/Lucky/Free   eyes that used to be my old defaults. I also gave them nose masks and  Maxis-match eyebrows by Aquilegia. I'm kinda liking the results. :) 

Whee it's pic-spam time! +5 more... )

LOL Promo

simtopi promo lololol
So I wanted a group shot to make possible header banners and other promotional type materials. And this was the result! I sit back and I keep giggling at it because it seriously reminds me of some TV drama promo which wasn't exactly what I was going for, but it works. And my capture software takes pics as JPEGs so there was all this crappy jpeg artifacting so I filtered the pic up a little. When I get around to it I will probably reshoot. I don't know if I could use it in a header but I'll play around and see what I come up with. :p I'm happy with it even if it is a little cheesy.

Here's a larger image. (same poses different angle/composition) It cuts Wesley off but he gets enough screen time, I'm sure he'll be okay.

Why is this story called 'Simtopi'? Now you get to find out!!! -_- )

I feel like I just started my day. :p But I have so much stuff to do and I need to get it done by the end of the day. /sigh. Anyway, I have been going through all the characters and trying to get decent portrait shots for all of them. Today it's Gabriel's turn.

So I spent a good chunk of last night working on screenshots for the Chapter 13. I have the story and plot all worked out in my head, I just needed the screenshots posed out which was kinda easy enough to do if you like driving spoons through your eyes, that sort of thing. After I've organized everything, I realized it came to over 120 screenshots. Ughgggghghghghghghg. I need to work out the pacing of the story a little better. I haven't decided if I'm going to do this as one mega chapter or divide it up. Seriously, I like taking the screenshots (most of the time), but this writing stuff goes over my head sometimes. D=

Anyway, this was sort of a nothing post so here's one for Team Gabriel. :D
