    Alright this is a story find that's gonna need a little explaining but it's got me beaming ear-to-ear. :mrgreen:sims3metries, it's a nice lil collection of three connected-ish TS3 stories by ivaneluna with a nice blend of gameplay and narrative and original townies (woop woop). Found randomly in the simlit tag on WordPress.
    Now here's the explaining: without going into an oral history of storytelling at Carl's forum (tempting though), there was a trend in 2014-ish of story-driven legacies. While it's my style too I'll admit that it waxes and wanes in popularity like anything else. Ivane was one of those writers but also one of the first to peace out and also delete her whole online presence including her legacy blog (SIGH). So I thought I'd never see her again until reunited by chance last night. Hope I wasn't too annoying...

    I went and read them and they're really good! Now I really want to play TS3 again.

    @friendsfan367 Maybe do a chapter for each situation- one for Noel, and one for Alec maybe? Or you could both POVs in the same chapter, but I know some people don't like doing that. And although they complicate your story in your eyes, CathyTea is right, it's those conflicts and interactions that make them feel human, and that's a good thing < 3

    Hey everyone! I apologize for no new chapters in June, I actually took the screenshots for two and then got really sick for over a week so it threw me behind schedule. I'm still not feeling the best after that, but I did manage to finish the first chapter I worked on, Chapter 104, which you can read here! The next few chapters after this one will be REALLY big, so I hope you can look forward to them!

    i know. i had to do it too. i thought that was bad then cathtea plays eso. elder scrolls online each pack takes hours to download so by the time i was done it was 2 or 3 days later,


    ok downloading is the bad side heres the good when your all done you can play on a brand new computer. :p:)

    oh i almost forgot i'm actually proud of alana. when i leave her to her to do her own thing she kisses or flirts with guys that aren't rylan but i sent her to the festivel and she totally behaved herself. which is shocking cause she used beat ayden up when they were kids,

    Everything finally downloaded, and all my saves transferred successfully! Edges look a little jagged in-game but apart from that everything’s fine. I just need to change the anti-aliasing settings.
    I think I’ll start a “test save” to experiment with the Eco Lifestyle features. I’ll use it to create some characters to put into my other saves, so they have a proper family and background.

    @Julyvee94 It’s probably good you did take a break, Creative Corner has been quiet save for my constant rambling in the WL. Going back to my main tabletop group very soon now that July 19 is planned to be the end of lockdown restrictions, but I’m very nervous about the end of lockdown restrictions if I’m honest. Crowds of people absolutely everywhere, I’m not sure how well I am going to cope with it (probably not well.) not to mention how busy work will be X_X

    Chapter 1.2. Heathcliff and Matty have a bad Christmas and someone else washes their hands because they've been filthy. (I'm running out of good outtakes and cut images)

    at my job i have to check people in and out i put a stamp on them when they arrive but most leave without me checking it and more since restrictions ended they tend to just leave so my job is kind of easy now,,

    I am not immune to the demands of work, family and must-do projects around my home either so I've been tardy on writing as well. BUT, here we are, the story continues and maybe if you're pining for some Sim Lit and haven't read any Sim 66 I present this...Chapter 112, You're Welcome

    I'm gonna make this it's own post once I become a regular community member, but I've created a Sims 4 writing challenge called the 100 story challenge! It is ambitious but so far I am having a lot of fun with it!

    the cathy project is i made a cathy sim but i told her we could put a sim with itso today creating jim. i would explain who that is but cathtea does it better theres a story about a pizza night toward the front of the thread.

    I think it happened the night my boyfriend and I met... pizza party... the pizza AND the oven caught on fire, but we didn't really notice, because we were talking and by the time we smelled smoke, the hosts had put it out!


    i found it this was the story cathtea told me when my sim colinforbes decided he wanted a stove without a cooking skill and died when i gave in.

    I’ve been experimenting with Eco Lifestyle features in a new save. Bridget and Sean O’Reilly live in Oasis Springs. Bridget is a freelance fabricator and Sean is a civil designer. Bridget is currently pregnant, and MCCC shows it’s twins, a boy and a girl. And they’re also Spellcasters… because why not :D:D
