    Hello! A few days delayed, but almost ready for release: "As Sims Go By (ep4) - the colors of showbiz"!

    I only need one more go on fine tuning sounds, then this episode will go online on March 13th! Yay!

    Added: It will be released with Youtube's premiere function, meaning you will be able to watch it "live" on Wednesday at 11 PM GMT. I assume you will see your local time on the premiere page. The premiere page also functions like a chat room, and I will be present 30 minutes prior to release :)

    Here's a brand new "How I Play" video! This time the focus is Shopping Malls, and although it's a tad hard getting into the details in a sim tv-show, I hope you get some ideas or inspiration for building your own shopping malls or other forms of combined stores. I might follow up with a more detailed article on my blog Simmerville's Sims later.

    I'm a bit behind schedule due to more RL working than expected. But next week there will hopefully be 2 more videos released.

    Currently in production:

    As Sims Go By - Ep5 - planned to air May 15th
    How I Play - more about taking photos in game - planned to air around May 18th

    And - I'm also planning to submit 2 entries for The Sims International Film Festival - how cool is that?! :love:

    While you wait - there is still 34 hours left for voting on Free Will Show ep 5. There's drama in the house and your vote can affect the show as one more contender will be kicked out in episode 6!

    Hello @MonaSolstraale :) I never sent anything to them before, and I assume they are used to much better technical quality, but I figured, why not... :) And - "San Myshuno Undercover" might very well be done this Summer. When first season of "As SimsGo By" is done in June, I will have time to work on the undercover story :)

    Hello! One day early: "As Sims Go By (ep5) - saving the elderly vote".

    In this episode it's finally Fanny Silverbone's turn, and the focus is retirement homes. But there is so much more going on! A wedding, a pregnancy, a grand opening, and not to forget the investigations of a murder... Next episode (ep6) will close this first season of this series. I hope to make season 2 over Summer, but no matter what, this is a good time to catch up on the entire first season :)

    PS: I no longer use YT's premiere feature, as the functionality is not what I expected. Might try it again later...

    Now, enjoy ep5:

    My YT channel has been rather silent lately, except the latest Free Will Show video, which isn't really Machinima. Plan was - and still is - to release As Sims Go By episode 6 in June. It's currently in production, and I hope to get it done for release next weekend. But knowing how much work it is, and seeing my RL vacation coming closer, mid July will be my next window for a release.

    Episode 6 is the last episode of this first season. I hope I will work on a season 2, but will need Summer to decide. A series like this is very time consuming to create and it's hard to get an audience anyway, so I guess it all will depend on my grade of craziness... Time will tell.

    Thanks for keeping my spirits high, @MonaSolstraale :) If I need a change, I could make shorter episodes, perhaps. And - I'm pretty sure San Myshuno Undercover will get its final 2 episodes this Summer. Will be interesting seeing how the addition from various packs will affect the result.

    Hello! I "had to" go on vacation before As Sims Go By episode was ready to go online. So, new release will be 2nd half of July. This episode closes the 1st season, and I'm already thinking of what might happen i the series' 2nd season. Because, this is based on real sims in my game, and I don't know the exact content of the videos until I learn what my sims do.

    Here's a cool capture of Fanny Silverbone :) When watching episode 6 you will understand why she is so jumping happy :)

    While waiting for my silly RL vacation to end, it might be a good time to watch the first 5 episodes.

    Finally - As Sims Go By - episode 6 is online! Sorry for the delay! This episode is rather packed with events, story threads and also a new community location, there's even a surprise pregnancy :)

    I'll soon write the full 2nd season, which will count 5 episodes. If you have any favorite character or household etc, let me know, and I'll make sure to keep them in the spot. Would be too sad if I write off the one favorite character of my only viewer... :)

    I did not plan to share this video here, but hey-ho, although it might be a bit off the Machinima theme, it IS fiction, and some might find a different - and NERDY - video interesting.

    Every 5th year I run a major Election in my game. This is a TV Special leading viewers through the process, lots of graphics, street reporters, entertainers in studio - you know the typical thing. First they elect the 18 Hood Contacts, then each district(=world) selects 2 Nominees for the district's Councilor. Then there is a final vote on the 5 Councilors who form the regional Council, and the final scores decides who will be offered to lead this exclusive group - the Mayor.

    Btw, I also do yearly NEWS reports with news, celeb gossips, finance news, job listings and lots of family notes. Will not post those 5 min videos here, though, as it all might get a bit nerdy, LOL. But they are gathered in a playlist on my YT channel.

    Summer is gone, vacation is history! It means I'm back home to work on the 2nd season of my video series As Sims Go By, Not a lot of viewers watched the 1st season, but I got enough good feedback to keep me going. Season 2 will have 5 episodes, there will be one main story aside of the Council, and - each episode will be cut from 22 minutes to 16 minutes. A little less time needed to get the series going forward with a new episode more or less monthly.

    Later this September you will find out what Claudia Tangerin is up to this time...

    While you wait, season 1 (6 episodes) can be found here.

    Hello! I'm breaking the silence with a quick promo video to inform you that 2nd season of my video series As Sims Go By is on its way!

    First episode is practically ready, so the wait should be no longer than a week. This season has 5 episodes, each lasting about 16 minutes. The 5th episode will air before end of December. Stay tuned! :)

    I'm making a new series of how-i-play videos, called «My Business». In my game there are many sims having jobs that are not fully recognized by the game. Because I arrange the wages via bank transfers, the job offices can be on any community lot - as long as there are a few random customers, I don't need to categorize the lot.

    In the first episode Anaya Jang tells about the opening of her Salon Orchid where she works as a Stylist with a different approach...

    Hello! My HIP Prime tv-shows are perhaps not real Machinima, but still, it's meant to be both entertaining and inspirational, so I'll share the latest addition here :)

    It's all about education. Not University but High Schools. I have a detailed routine for this in my game, where teens can specialize on certain skills at one of four additional High Schools, for 3 years. It's a good runner up to University too, as my most ambitious sims will get prepared. And - my private schools cost way more than Uni (which is way too cheap), too :)

    Here's episode 2 of my ongoing soap series As Sims Go By. This time one focus is investments, which is actually a working thing in my game. Many locals do invest their savings in shares. In this episode you get one step closer to my take on the Villareal story, and there are lots of challenges for the main characters, including Victor, Fanny and Joanna. And although I don't have Discover University yet, Britechester is mentioned, LOL :)

    Enjoy!

    Dear Simmerville. I still believe that your As Sims Go By series deserves far more attention ;)
    A couple of unexpected babies where the genes speak for themselves.....
    I'm excited about what it entails in the future :smile:

    Thanks @MonaSolstraale :) So glad that you are still watching! I love anything genes, every time a baby is born in my game I can't wait to see how genetics come to play. Those babies you refer to were normally born, genes were decided by game not by my plot, he-he (but I was double lucky).
