17A Parts 4 and 5

Parts 4 and 5

So, I wasn't going to post these until I'd finished the chapter (or at least done some more parts of it), since they're not that long, but I feel like I need to in order to explain something that might be noticeable about these parts.

I haven't staged and shot anything in almost a year, and I recently got a new proper-sized computer screen. I had been worried that I wouldn't remember all the staging cheats or poses or something, but it was actually pretty simple and I was so busy congratulating myself on this that I didn't think enough about the way the pictures looked maybe a bit smaller and maybe a bit less quality than I remembered, putting it down to the bigger new screen I had. Only on the last-but-one picture did I realise that I was taking the pictures from the Neighbourhood folder rather than the Storytelling folder, which I had previously discovered looked a bit better for me at least.

So, I don't know if anyone would have noticed, but if the pictures don't look as sharp as they used to, that would be why. And is what I get for my hubris.

I'm planning on doing the next parts soon, but I am also doing overtime every work night lately and wind up pretty tired, so we'll see how long that takes.

I usually take my photos from the Storytelling folder under the specific neighborhood. Of course, I clean it out semi-regularly...

Hey, we can be update buddies when I finally get off my butt and edit this bit!

I took these from the Storytelling folder within the Neighbourhood folder, but I find that the pictures (I think it's the Screenshot one) in the main Storytelling folder are better quality, probably because they start out bigger - though it means you have to minimise the game for every single picture or they get overwritten which is a hassle. I don't think it's massively noticeable in this, but on a few pictures I could see it.

Stealth update is stealthy! Hooray for more Rymans! Awesome to see you around! ^^

[Spoiler (click to open)]
I think I said so before, in connection with a drabble, but seeing Tori's point of view really makes me symphatize with her a lot more. It doesn't seem so on the outside, but really, she's brave in her own way, trying to help her sister in what seems the only way she can think of. I have a sad suspicion that she can't persuade the aliens, though... Oh how I hope that someone, anyone, can do something and Tori doesn't have to remain unconscious indefinitely!

Seems like Tia's new job is starting well, good to see it. I can recognize Dotty and Jenny, but not the others... Are they story imports too?

Poor, poor Tia. I feel for her, a note like that can never really let one go... I really, really hope that Ben can live up to his promise, but I wonder if it is possible... *ponders*


Great update, Jess! Looking forward to more whenever you have the time! :)

I think Tori's feeling guilt and resultant self-destructiveness more than bravery right now, but there is some goodness and bravery there too. She's had time to reflect on her past actions and mature a bit.

I believe I got Danielle from Lauri, though I actually had to recreate her because some sims seem to have disappeared from my game which might cause an issue in at least one case where they were supposed to marry in... Raneb is from Fuzzy's egyptian-y legacy which I'm not sure has had a proper chapter out yet, but he was a good match for a single sim I have, so. Everett comes from Ang's (Peasant007) game, I think she just did a one-off challenge which (accidentally) resulted in him and he has good personality stats for a match as well. There's a good few single ladies in this generation with the Jalowitzes left town.

Thaaanks ^.^

JESSsss. So glad to see this! I had to go back a couple of updates to get back up to speed on what's happening. D: But that's mostly because my brain does a data dump every few months. :P

You have such a lovely way of injecting emotion into your characters. You could use crayon drawings and I'd still be sucked into the story based on your writing alone. :P So the pictures looked fine to me! lol

Oh man, poor Raneb (the one in MY game, not here, lol). I should probably get back to that legacy. At least he's got a life though! :D

Nice update! Looking forward to what's coming next... D: maybe. I'm looking forward to finding out anyway! XD
