Finally, after a long time of real life getting in the way, I bring you a Lakewood update! I sure have been sitting on it long enough. As always, comments are welcome wherever you might feel inclined to leave them. I hope you enjoy!

So it's less than 30 minutes from midnight here, and here comes our last update of the year 2016! It's back to Lakewood and to the beginning of the fourth week. I hope you enjoy the update, and if you feel inclined to comment, that's welcome anywhere.

And while I'm at it: Happy New Year! Here's hoping it's a really good one. Have fun, and stay out of the way of the fireworks!

At long last, the final update of week 3, with another new family. I've been a bit ill and whatnot, but I finally finished typing this thing. As always, if you feel inclined to comment, that's welcomed wherever it's most convenient for you. I hope you enjoy!

Finally got the next Lakewood update typed up! I hope you enjoy the update, and as usual, comments are welcome wherever you might feel inclined to comment. :)


While I'm at it, I'll do a quick Weekly simming. Other than the above, not hugely much to report. I've been mostly writing the update, plus playing that new TS4 legacy I started for curiosity and fun. I'm documenting, but for now I'll keep it unpublished. We'll see if I can get further along, then I'll consider again. So far it's been fun. :)

Oh, and I did play the Patches a little bit yesterday, forwarded the grandparent vacation. But then my back started acting out and I called it a day. Oh well.

Anyway, that has been this week's simming. We'll see about the situation again next week!

I made use of the time that I needed to sit in vechiles; I think I should do that more often, based on the amount of stuff I got written this time. To be fair, I did sit in vechiles quite a bit, too. In any case, here's part of the fruit of my labor. I hope you enjoy the chapter, and as always, comments are welcome wherever you might feel inclined to leave them!

Well, first things first, we have an update! That was closer to done than I thought. As always, comments are welcome wherever you might feel inclined to leave them. I hope you enjoy!

Ha! So I finally got my act together and finished typing the Curious update. It's a little long (and that's partly why it took me so long), but what can I say, it was an eventful week too!

Anyway, as always, comments are welcome wherever you might feel inclined to leave them. I hope you enjoy!

So, here I come, bearing an update! It's time for the third week with the Capps.



As usual, if you feel like leaving a comment, they are welcome anywhere it suits you. I hope you enjoy!

After a long wait (and tonight's long battle with Photobucket) here's finally the first part of the third week in Lakewood. As usual, comments are welcome wherever you might be inclined to leave them. :) I hope you enjoy!

Here comes the first update of the year, and the final one in Lakewood's second week!

Again, I'll combine the two posts of the day into one, as they'd otherwise come in pretty close succession.

This week, despite the approaching Christmas, I managed to get some time to sim, mostly in the weekend. Yesterday I finished playing the Fortunato household, and today I finished typing the update. I like how the type as I play thing works for this challenge! Oh, and again I wrote a little bit for the Bookacies too. Chapter 42 is now on 33 slides. I'm now excited for two things: next, I get to play Brandi's challenge, and after that, I think I'll play the Bookacies! It's been ages.

I again think I may have the hack thing cornered, as I didn't manage to reproduce it a single time while playing the Fortunatos, and with two sims able to dazzle. We'll see, but even if it turns out that it's not in my current quarantine folder, it might be that I'll then just live with it. It's been way too long since I played Alphabetia.

But, in any case, there was an update to be had!

Update time! I got the Curious household update typed up, so here it is:

Well, it felt silly to post basically twice in a row, so I decided to combine the posts, especially since they would essentially say the same thing.

Again, in the beginning of the week I've been a bit absent, lazy, distracted, tired, one of these things. But in the weekend I managed pretty good progress. Yesterday I finished playing Regan and Jenny's second week, and today I finished writing it. So all in all, I'm really happy with the progress. To tell the truth, I don't think I've been able to push updates out this fast, like, ever, at least in the time I've been full time employed!

Of course, it all has to do with two things. 1) This is an observational challenge, and I'm not worrying about text quality, at all. And not staging, and planning, and... And the typing as I play really seems to work here. And 2) it's still a new challenge, so I'm perhaps more excited than I am for something that I've been working on, well, frankly, the better part of a decade now. (Wow, that's a scary thought!) Well, in any case, I suppose I'll just enjoy it while it lasts!

As for the presumed hack issue with dazzling, I'm currently tossing the thought of just leaving it be and playing around it. It's rare enough, and seems to be recoverable, so I don't actually have to quit without saving if it happens. Sure, a kind of an annoyance in a BaCC, and an annoying one at that. But frankly, since it's so rare, it's also a pest to find, and I've sort of run out of ideas on what it could be. So maybe I'll be able to just live with it. In any case, I'll probably try and finish the Lakewood rotation before I consider going back to the Bookacies.

Anyway, so, I think that covers my simming this week, just about. Oh wait, you were waiting for that update, right? Well, here you go!



As always, comments welcome here, there or anywhere. I hope you enjoy! :)

Well, this week was one of my better ones. Despite real life stuff, I finally managed to squeeze together that Lakewood update I've been sitting on. That alone has made this a good simming week.

Towards the end of the week, I haven't had that much time, seeing that my parents were over this weekend and whatnot, but now that I've been allowed to, I've started playing the next household. I don't suppose I'm going to give out huge spoilers by saying that Regan and Jenny are now married and expecting. And I've been trying to write as I play again, so that I wouldn't end up with a big chunk of unwritten stuff, that really gets demotivating sometimes.

I also still miss the Bookacies. There's no progress on finding that [pixelated] hack problem, so I still haven't wanted to open my favorite 'hood. *sigh* Not that I've been really terribly motivated about the Bookacies, I just miss them. Oh well, I'll enjoy playing what I do play, and worry about the rest later.

Take that, real life, sickness, distraction and excuses! We're back with the first part of week 2. I hope you enjoy, and as always, comments are welcome wherever they're most convenient for you. :)

Here comes the final part of week 1! I hope you enjoy, and as always, comments are welcome wherever it best suits you.

This week was my first week back at work, and also otherwise quite busy IRL, so there isn't much to report.

I did manage to finish playing the last household of Lakewood's first week, and I posted a bit of picspam on that. The writing is currently in the works, I'm maybe halfway through.

I'm not quite managing to type everything as I play, as I tend to get caught up in playing, but I intend to enforce a rule that in Lakewood, I'm not allowed to play the next household before the update on the previous one is written. With no plot, there shouldn't be a need to play ahead, so with that rule, I won't be able to accumulate any huge masses of unwritten chapters or anything such.

I think that's about it simming-wise. I suspect next week may turn out to be at least somewhat busy, but I hope I'll be able to get the Lakewood update out at least.

This week concludes my summer vacation for this year, and although last week was better progress-wise, I did get stuff done and I'm happy with it.

Things that got done )

So tomorrow morning it's back to work for me. But, there's still evenings and weekends, so we'll keep trotting along.

Phew, I've been hardworking this week!

Progress report this way! )

Here comes the third part! I'm on a roll. :) I would have posted this earlier today, but my computer gave me a bit of a scare and I took a backup just in case. Everything seems just fine now, so I hope it was just a random hiccup and not anything serious... *knocks on wood*

As always, comments welcome here, there, anywhere.
