Foiled at the last minute
Congrats!
dinoshad2brains
So, my game crashed a little bit back, and I had to reinstall. But I finally put all the pieces back together again, made everyone over again, and shot all the pictures for all eight scenes of my newest chapter. I feel pretty good about the writing, and was feeling really good about the pictures. I have a lot of really nice long shots, and was practicing my set building, which I'm new to, and I had done some scenes with way more characters that I'd ever done before that almost made my laptop melt. On the whole, I was feeling pretty proud of myself.

I just opened the storytelling folder to start sorting which pictures should go where, and I realize that when I reinstalled it had changed my picture taking settings. I'd changed some of them so the sims have fingers and all that, but all of the pictures are in 300x400. I read (and really enjoy) some stories with pictures only a little bigger than this, but I think they have better graphics cards than me, or I didn't restore some other settings, because their pictures always look good.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about.




So, what do you think? Should I post the chapter with the pictures that quality, which I could have up by the end of the day, or start reshooting?

10 Things Meme: Vidcund Curious, Jenny Curious-Smith, and PT9 Smith
Congrats!
dinoshad2brains
Ah, you thought this was finally dying off of your friends page, didn't you?

I’m a little late getting this up, but remisims tagged me for Vidcund Curious, emmelfish tagged me for Jenny Curious-Smith, and pascal_curious tagged me for PT9 “Petey” Smith.

First up, Vidcund glitches a pizza box to his chest to warn me that my game may crash soon. Thanks for the heads up!

Congrats!

simsinthecity tagged me for this.

1. Post 10 facts about your character.
2. Tag 5 other characters.
3. Post their names with the creators' usernames.
4. You can tag back!

I was asked about Circe. And while at first I was really bummed that it was Circe, who I hadn't decided on too many details for, not a Curious brother (Oh man, I could report at least 20 facts each), I thought about it today at work, and it really got me thinking about Circe. I feel like I actually know her way better, and was forced to make some decisions about her.

CirceCollapse )

And I'm tagging:
remisims Dirk (You're now double tagged, so you'll have some catching up to do when you get back.)

The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.
Congrats!

I know it's been a long time, but chapter 6 is written, and chapter 7 is almost finished being written, and chapters 8 & 9 are outlined scene by scene, and I'm starting to take pictures for chapters 6 & 7 today. Part of chapter 6 is actually up for critique at simswritersclub

Just wanted you to know that I am not dead, and that my progress will only be slowed by my timeouts to read your stories.

...And if someone has advice on how to control ghosts for story purposes, that would also really speed things along. Can I summon them? Do I have to wait for them to show up, and then grab them with move objects, put them in position and hope they do scary ghostly stuff? I haven't been able to find anything, yet I see them all the time in stories. simtopi has ghosts who appear to pose, but I'm kind of just thinking she's magic.

That's totally not a spoiler, by the way. There are all sorts of Strangetown plotlines I could need ghosts for. *cough*

Hey there! Sorry it's been a while since my last update, I got my significant other a season of the X-Files for their birthday, so we've just spent the past week binging on that, and I've gotten pretty behind. Sadly, this includes my friends' page, which I plan to catch up on today. So if you posted something, and I didn't comment, and you thought I didn't like it, know that I'm just behind and hopefully I won't miss anything getting caught up.
