*stares at printer*

It sure takes a long time to print 43 pages... O_o

At any rate, this is just a quick note to let you know that simming hath begun! Or rather, will be beginning after this episode finishes printing and my game starts and and and...

But yes. It shan't be long now.

So earlier today I installed Apartment Life and have had some time to poke around a little. I'll say up front that it's got some really fantastic items in it, especially in build mode. There's a lot of little cluttery things, plus industrial-type pipes and vents. For me, this EP is worth it just for the ceilings and the nifty new thing where you can move wall objects (including lights!) up and down without needing an entirely new mesh. Also, as an added bonus it was a totally painless install.

There's not much in the way of new interactions that I've seen so far, but I haven't done much digging yet either. There's a ton of potential in the clothes and hair, plus a lot of stuff for elders and kids/toddlers if you're into that sort of thing.

I'm glad I held off starting to sim the next episode because now I can get some serious use out of the new ceilings, etc.

I suppose this is sort of an 'update on the progress' type post, mostly so I can sort of touch base with what's happening with the next episode.

At this point, I'd say I'm about 80% done with the scenes that need to be written. There are only about two or three scenes that need to be done, and of those, one is pretty close to being completed. I wrapped up two or three other scenes today, and I'd be doing even more writing if I weren't about to head out the door for a tattoo appointment that will keep me busy and in pain the rest of the night. My muse has poor timing.

After I get those finished, I'm going to have to go through and do a second draft of this episode because I know I have a bunch of contradictions happening all over the place since I didn't have a clue where this episode was headed when I first started out. This shouldn't be too big of a deal, but I thought I'd let you all know what was going on if you happened to look at the progress list and wondered why everything was crossed off with nothing happening in the simming department. ^_^

Sadly, I will not be attending DragonCon this year. It's therefore my goal to get this episode simmed and online by the first week of September if not sooner.

And now I've completely jinxed myself. XP

*looks around sheepishly*

Ok, since I need to get my ass in gear with this episode, I'm making this 'To Do' list now even though I'm nowhere near ready to start simming. I've been spending way too much time thinking about what needs to happen instead of just jumping in and going where I'm taken.

As usual, the list will be updated as things get done.

Dear Behind The Name,

Your random name generator is once again failing me. Though I'm amused, and do appreciate that you've not given me any more 'Gerasim Stef Notorious Funk Randal'-s, I'm not getting very far with my writing.

Please try a little harder.


I have to change the name of a character in this episode to something other than 'Brendan,' because I can't type that at any reasonable speed without typo-ing it to death every. single. time. Every time the RNG gives me something normal, I either can't use it because it's the name of one of my brothers (Brian), or the name of Emily's newold car (Oliver).

*several minutes pass*

Oooooo ok got one!

It's a little hard to believe, but today marks three years to the day that I posted the first 'episode' of Deception Pass. Honestly, I didn't expect it to last this long at all.

I'm still busy working on the next episode, but I had to do battle with an extreme case of writers' block on top of all the other goings on of the last couple months.

In the mean time, I threw a party for the kids today. You can see the result of said party by following the link below.

Chris couldn't attend due to a horrific accident with his skintone, which I'm working on updating. Let's just say he and Ruth are out causing all sorts of ruckus.

Those of you involved in the Sims side of things may be interested to know that gelydh and I have started up our own site for random simulated goodies.

We've named it "Club Crimsyn", and we may or may not be serious.


(And yes, progress is being made on the next episode of DP... no worries.)

Happy 146th, Tristan!

I hope this makes up for that brick I got you a couple years ago. (six pictures)

Pair of Tristan-related videos this-a-way...Collapse )

And now I'm off to finish simming the last two scenes in the next episode. (Muwahahaha... finished.) I still have two more to write, but those shouldn't take me long at all. The ep should be up very very shortly now, less than a week. I have a bit of clean-up to do just to make sure everything's where it should be.

At the risk of completely jinxing myself, I've successfully installed and tested Free Time, and am now ready to get back to work on the next episode. I should be able to really sit down and focus on that tomorrow afternoon.

I've uploaded some of the usual 'New EP Odds and Ends Pics,' as well as some more posed shots of Tristan with the violin. And... Jacob stealing said violin and running off to frolick with it. :/ Markus and James stopped by at one point, but were scared by the chaos on the lot and thus left.

I'm doing this now because while there is still much to be written (this will be a fairly long episode), I'd like to get started on simmage ASAP.

As an aside, I've uploaded a small set of 'props' I made for this episode. They're available here at Exnem in case anyone wants them. They're moderately spoilery!
