Despite concentration being scarce, I managed a bit of progress this week. I sent a couple of comments that I owed, and today, I got started on set number 4 (I think) for the interlude. It's substantially smaller than the ones I've made so far, and I think I'm maybe halfway done with it. That's pretty good for a week in February.

Next week is probably more of the same, but after next week, I have a week of vacation planned. So maybe, in the weekend, I might get something done. Maybe.

Well, this week was kind of bound to have no progress. I didn't have the energy during the week, and in the weekend I was on the road. I did take my Bookacy pictures with me, in case I'd feel like pre-arranging them, but in the end, I didn't do anything with them.

Oh well. At this time of the year, this was to be expected, as my energy and concentration are pretty much at their lowest point. And so, I'm not going to stress about a hobby. I'll have a new chance next week, we'll see how that goes. And then another the week after that, and so on.

Oh, and I also owe some comments. I'll try to tackle those soon too, but that could be a little slow too.

Well, even though the winter absolutely sucks, it's the worst time of the year for me, I have some progress. The progress can be summarized as follows: Lakewood update! I finally managed to finish typing it and do the copy paste operation required to publish it. So, at this time of the year, it's definitely progress to be proud of. Without further ado, here it is.

I hope you enjoy the update, and if you feel inclined to comment, that's welcome anywhere it's the most convenient for you.

Again, I can report some progress from the weekend. Which is good. The Goth update is getting there, around 20 pictures to go through yet, so that's not a lot. Then I'll of course need a cover and to actually post the update. But that shouldn't be far away anymore. Maybe next week if I'm lucky.

As for the Bookacy side of things, I think I finished making the third set today, so that's quite nice. I still need at least two more, but those should be at least smaller in size, so I'm hoping they might be less work. We'll see. In any case, that's definitely progress!

Next week should be a pretty regular one I think. No huge plans, but work (and excercise, if all goes to plan) might suck out the energy in me during the week, maybe more luck in the weekend. Fingers crossed.

Another week finished, I had pretty good progress in the weekend.

I wrote a little bit for the Goths, and I'm not terribly far away from finishing writing their week. Gathering the concentration for writing is a bit of a task, so every little bit counts.

On the Bookacy side of things, I set to work building a third set for the planned interlude. It's coming along pretty nicely, I've built the structure and partly decorated it too. It might take a couple sessions to finish it, but it's quite good progress especially as I only I got started yesterday.

So yeah, pretty good this week. I won't make any promises about next week, but hopefully I'll have a bit of time here and there.

It's the second Weekly simming of the year, and I'm happy to report some progress. I was kind of busy or at least tired most of the week (had neck issues again on Friday, too), but today has been a surprisingly productive day for simming purposes.

I finally managed to update the TS4 randomizer. Digging out the icons was a bit of a pain again, but I did find them in the end yesterday. Today I made the code changes and did some cleaning on a couple of the icons. Plus tested. Seems to work okay, I hope I didn't mess anything up.

Since there was still time, I got back to Lakewood and found the Goths where I left them: a day away from completing their week. I just finished that day, so that's pretty nice too. Now there's only the rest of the writing to do before I can get that update out. I think I'm about halfway through with the text.

So, I think it's pretty good progress, especially seeing that it's in the middle of the winter, with kaamos and everything. Next week I have some errands to run in the evening, but I don't think I've got anything special for the weekend. We'll see if we might see more progress then.
katrisims: (Default)
Well, it seems I'm stil a bit off schedule with things. Getting re-accustomed to work took all my energy last week, and I spent the weekend doing absolutely nothing productive. I think I was simply in the need of that.

Now I've been slowly catching up with some comments, and there's more of that yet to come. After that, I should really look into updating the TS4 randomizer. It's way overdue by now. I have another weekend with no plans coming up, I hope I can find the concentration to at least get that one out there. If I have the energy, the next thing would be to get back to Lakewood. I guess we'll see how that goes.

First of all, Happy 2019! May it be a good year for us all. I'm combining my last uneventful weekly simmings with my traditional Year in Review, so here goes.

I was right a couple weeks ago when I estimated that I might not have much, if any, progress during the last couple of weeks of the year. I traveled with the family for Christmas and spent a couple weeks in the warm. I also managed to get sick (because of course I did), as did all of the family at some point during the vacation. So yeah, I didn't even open the writing I had with me, or the TS4 randomizer. We got back yesterday afternoon and today was my first day back at work. At the moment I'm still recovering from jetlag. Probably not huge progress during the week (I keep forgetting it's already Wednesday, too), but on the other hand, I have a free weekend coming up with no plans, so maybe I'll get some simming time in then.

Alright, that just about covers the last couple of weeks of 2018. But how about the goals for last year, did I make them?

2018 )

Alright, so not bad. What about 2019?

2019 )

Alright, it seems like ambition is creeping back into these goals, and maybe that's a good thing, but I'll stop here so maybe I won't completely overdo it. Anyway, Happy New Year once again, I'll get back to you in less than a week for the first weekly simming of the year!

Well, the year is pretty much wrapping up here. I did manage to play a little bit in the weekend, the Goths have about a day left in their rotation, and that'll be where they'll be at the end of the year. I'll have my writing with me as I travel for the holidays, plus the TS4 randomizer that needs updating, but whether I'll get anything done is an open question. I'll try to check in yet once next weekend or so, but no absolute promises.

Just in case, I wish you a happy festive season, whether you celebrate or not. Take care, I'll be back at the latest next year!

Just quickly before bed. As I predicted, last week was pretty busy. I was on the road again in the weekend, to see another friend defend, which was pretty nice. I did write some Lakewood captions on the bus, but that's it for simming progress.

Actually, the rest of the year looks busy enough that there probably won't be much, if any, progress. Possibly I might have a bit of time next weekend, but no promises. Well, if nothing else, I suppose I'll get started again in the new year.
katrisims: (Default)
Again during the week I've been kind of distracted, mostly reading. Well, that's nice too. Plus there's been a little bit of X-mas stuff going on, but I did get to play a bit in the weekend. The Goths are now at Saturday evening, and they have a business lined up for them for as soon as they have the money to buy it. So hey, we're getting somewhere.

Next week I predict not much progress, as I'll be on the road some. On the other hand, I'm planning to take my laptop, so maybe I can do some writing. Maybe?
katrisims: (Default)
Not hugely much progress this week. I've been kind of tired and distracted, and playing some Zelda as that's something I can just play. Kaamos is here again, and it has its inevitable effects. In any case, I did play and write a little bit in the weekend. The Goths are at Friday morning currently, and the writing is a bit behind from that. I think I've managed not to take a bajillion pictures so far, so maybe the writing will not be such a huge effort. Maybe, we'll see.

I don't know about next week really. I shouldn't be hugely busy, but kaamos continues (and will for the next several months), so it might not be hugely productive. Well, one day at a time.

Well, last week did see some progress on the TS2 side too. I decided that to take a break from the building, I'd play the next Lakewood household. It was the turn for the Goth uglacy, and there's nice progress being made there. The first generation spouse is moved in, and there's babies happening. I'm about halfway through the week now in playing, not quite that far in writing, but we'll get there.

I did also play a tiny bit of my TS4 legacy, mostly to get a missing picture for a forum event at Boolprop. Every little bit counts there too.

This week, well, we'll see. It shouldn't be too busy, but it is the dark time of the year so let's see how much energy I have. Hoping for the best!

As I suspected, this week was on the busier side, with errands in the evenings and the Finnish Father's day in the weekend (I went to visit the parents). I didn't really have the concentration for my TS2 stuff in the evenings, but instead I played my TS4 legacy on a couple of evenings at least. I suppose finishing the first generation and installing a new pack got me pretty excited on that, too.

I meant to continue the documentation while on the road in the weekend, but it was too dark in the car for that and otherwise I didn't really have time. Well, I'm not on a deadline for that so that's alright.

The upcoming week should probably be less busy, at least I think so. So well, we'll see how it goes but I hope to have some progress on the TS2 side of things too.
katrisims: (Default)
As I suspected, I didn't get quite as much done this week as the last when it comes to sims. Still, it was a surprisingly good week for progress.

I should now be all queued for picspam again, so that'll keep going on for a while. The queue is more than forty days long, which is nice.

I've also been on a cc hunting spree for the current and the next set. The current one, the school, is pretty much done I think. I even remembered to install lights today. I'm still considering getting a big cc clock for the outside wall, but otherwise I think it's done. The next one is a hospital, I think that'll be a fun one. I'm considering playing either Alphabetia or Lakewood first though, to not get sick of building. We'll see.

I've also been playing and documenting my TS4 legacy. My second generation heiress became a young adult, so the first generation is officially done! Today, I celebrated that by installing Get to Work, which has been sitting in my games cart for a while. I had a new young adult in the need of a job, so I of course picked one of the new ones to get to try an interactive career. My heiress became a doctor, and I just finished her first day at work. It was fun, doctoring around! It seems the biggest challenge was to lure the other doctors away, as they liked to chat with the patients and stand in the way so that my sim wasn't able to diagnose and treat them. :P Anyway, it was pretty exciting, and I'm going to need to restrain myself so I don't follow my heiress to work every single day and miss everyone else at home! From what I hear, I'm not the only one with that issue. :)

On the side (while waiting for the GTW download to be done), I continued a little bit of the potential collecting of apocalyptic cc. I'm still undecided on what I might do with the apocalypse, but I haven't forgotten about it.

Next week promises to be on the busier side I think, so we'll see what I might have the energy for in the evenings. I hope I'll have a bit of progress at least.

Lots of progress this week, I've been on a roll!

Let's see. Last time I was talking about sending some teens to college and then taking a backup. Yes, I managed that, early in the week actually. I was just so close to my backup point that I just went ahead and did some grow-ups and makeovers like Monday night, and set the machine to crunch a backup on Tuesday. I've also been queuing picspam little by little during the week, right now I'm set for well over a month. A little bit to queue yet, so that's something to do next week.

Now in the weekend I took to building set number two for the plotty interlude, a school. I'm pretty far along, too, done lots of building and decorating. It's a fun little project, I've never built a school before. I'm having especially fun with the specialty classes, like cookery and arts. I'd like to include at least a computer class yet, although I'm kind of running out of space. Also, the set is probably way overkill for the purposes of the interlude, but I figured I might re-use it in the future, plus building it is fun. We'll see if I can complete it next week, it's kind of getting there. Though I may yet look for some cc that would be nice, I'm probably going to need some for the next set anyway.

While building, I've also been documenting my TS4 legacy. Today I got all caught up with that, so I played ahead again. My heiress is allllmost a young adult, so I'm very close to completing my first full generation. That one is fun too, I'm still enjoying playing the family. Again I'm considering sharing it, but I always feel like I should play and write ahead more, so as to not give myself another thing to worry about updating-wise.

All in all, a very good simming week. Next week I may have some errands to run, and guests coming over in the weekend, so probably less simming then. But I hope to get at least something done.

This week, I'm quite content with the progress I've had. I had time to play in the weekend, and so managed to finish the Mendoza household, the last one in the rotation. I also went ahead and calculated which of the neighborhood kids should have grown to teens had I played everyone. I visited those houses and artificially aged them to their correct ages and gave them makeovers. Aspirations and orientations were rolled too.

I was going to send the next batch of college kids on their way too, but didn't have time for that. I'm going to do yet that (next week I hope) and then it's time to take a backup. It did cross my mind that there may be elders that should possibly have died, but that's not a task I'm looking forward to, so I haven't done that yet. I suppose I should check though. There aren't many gen. B elders left in any case.

Anyway, I hope to get at least to the backup point next week, hopefully queue picspam too. If I'm lucky enough to have more time than that, I think I should probably continue with my set building for the interlude. Fingers crossed for another good simming week!

As I suspected, last week was so busy that I didn't do anything simming related at all. It was for a fun reason though: I had a couple of vacation days in the end of the week and had a nice trip to Netherlands for a bit of an autumn break. It was quite a successful trip, and the weather was great throughout. It was pretty amazing to see +25 C and sunny weather in October. All in all, it was a nice break.

Now this week should be less busy, and I hope to see some simming at least in the weekend. I suppose we'll see how that goes!

Another good simming week behind. I'm happy to have made this much progress.

During the week, I managed to squeeze that little bit of the next Lakewood update together, and on Friday night, I got it posted. It's been a long time coming, and I'm glad to have it done finally.

Yesterday I did some more building, and I think I'm now finished with the set I've been making. What's maybe a bit less encouraging is that I'm going to need at least four more for shooting the upcoming plotty interlude. Yes, four. Well, when the mood strikes, building is fun, plus I suppose I can use some of those again in the future. I think I should probably finish the Mendoza household first and take a backup before I start making the next set.

Today, I documented my TS4 legacy for a bit and also played a little bit, apparently for the first time for about a half a year or so. My teen spare managed to set the stove on fire, but luckily he also managed to extinguish it while the rest of the family panicked. Now they're all pretty miserable, trying to recover from the shock. Except the spare, who thinks he did a pretty great job putting out the fire.

Next week promises to be pretty busy, so busy even that I suspect that there may be no simming at all. But I'll check back in about a week and we'll see.

This week was one of my better simming weeks lately. The progress happened mostly during the weekend as it generally does these days, but there was surprisingly much.

First of all, I managed to update the TS4 randomizer, which is now up to date until Seasons and has a new feature for randomizing tattoos. Well the code was mostly done for a couple of weeks already, it only needed a finishing touch plus the documentation needed to be updated. But anyway, I got that done and posted, so that's all good.

I've also been writing up the Broke week, and I'm almost there. It's missing like ten pictures and a cover now, so it's really really close. I should probably try to take/use less pictures for Lakewood so at least there updating would be less slow, but well you know me: I'm just wordy like that. Be it plotty or not plotty (or an assignment for school, documentation for work...), that's one of my biggest flaws as a writer, I can't cut. Oh well, at least this one is again almost done and I can move on to the next thing.

I also finally got around to continuing the building of the set I started building probably months ago. It's supposed to be a house for a clearly wealthy family, and I'm having a lot of fun with it actually. A lot of internal monologue with "no no, it has to look more expensive" and "okay well that's just too much over the top" was going on. That one's getting somewhere too, but still lots of furnishing, decorating and landscaping to do. In any case, I'm happy to see that moving on, as I'm going to need several sets for my upcoming plans.

So yeah, I did good this week. Hopefully next week sees some progress too.
