Been a while, but they’re back: Make one change – bitch at Quorn
The Knights are lucky I love them because the amount of crashing and freezing they put me through… anyway, a new chapter has finally been squeezed out: 5. Starry Starry Knights.
The Dayes are being just as annoying, but in different ways, in their new chapter In which I want to kill Dracula all over again.
Oh, the fun of being off work for a few days – two Dayes updates for you!
We fail at going Into the Future in Future-Proof and we repeatedly fail at sim-killing in Killing in the Name Of. We also get very sad about Twallan’s retirement when our game glitches all the freaking time and we realise we can’t ask him how to make it better any more (but thank you for EVERYTHING, Twallan, you are a LEGEND).
Well, Bathory may have turned her back on me, but I haven’t forgotten her. After my game has started functioning again (ish, the poor Knights), the Dayes are back in Uni Dayes. Did any of them pass any exams?
After two years as heir – the longest ever heirship in a legacy that didn’t go on a hiatus?? – Puddle Daye has passed on the baton.
Who to? Well, read the latest Dayes update, Heir We Go Again to find out.
As for my other stories, the Knights have had babies… plenty of babies… I haven’t played much lately, but I recently had a birthday and the latest stuff pack has arrived, with University on its way so I’m very excited about seeing how the uni expansion might work with Kingsfield. And I’ll try and update Taken within the next week or so.
As for the banner this month – Cartland Knight as the Third Doctor and Bebe Populous as Jo Grant, out for a ride in Bessie.
There’s a new Dayes update, Seasons in the Sun, which should be the first of two over the next few days as I’ve got loads of shots left and also hope to play a bit. Kingsfield should be updated in the next few days too.
Don’t get used to this…
I had hoped to update Kingsfield and Taken by now, but the best laid plans and all that.
May your Dayes be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be Knight!
Happy Christmas everyone!
The Dayes are back with some new babies, and an accident… Don’t Have a Cowplant, Man.
It’s been a lot longer than I anticipated, but they’re back in Starlight Express and I’ve been playing them a lot so expect a new chapter sooner rather than later.
Not sure when the other blogs will update as I haven’t touched any of their saves for a while. But I hope to get onto Taken and Kingsfield again soon – I’m just having too much fun with the Dayes right now…
Let’s face it, when EA introduced the age sliders and made it so that the minimum life span was no longer 25 days, it was only a matter of time before I took up that challenge. So the Knights are back, with all the sliders turned to the left (13 day lifespan, baby) and they’re aiming to go from Wii to the prettiest sim they can get in 10 generations. And the theme this time is pattern. Their new blog is called Knights in Bright Pattern and you can read the intro post, 1. Virginia Plain here. Second gen soon (cos I played ahead…)
Thanks to everyone who’s filled in the survey I posted yesterday so far – if you haven’t done so yet then please do. I’ll leave it up until late next week.
Feels like it’s been a while, but new Dayes of Our Lives: Karaoke King where, as usual, the spares(or rather, the spares’ children) get all the blog time. But that’s because they’re awesome.
In which we get a new family member, some magic items and I finally lose my rag with a certain LTW… Cheats frequently prosper
Things will slow down a bit from next week, I expect, but for now, here’s a new Dayes of Our Lives update: F is for Fantastic, right?
And seeing as it’s December 5, I’m glad I didn’t go for a full-on Advent Calendar after all…
I was the worst TS1 Pets player ever. I feel I should warn you, ahead of the impending carnage that the Dayes having pets will become. Meet the first victims: This will not end well.
In other news, I passed my PhD! (Well, subject to minor modifications/ amendments, which is normal). You may now call me Dr Rad. My PhD supervisor even emailed all my colleagues with the message headline Dr RAD because she’s sweet like that.
Time to fire up my game and get some shots for Taken, and then try and get to the end of the Populouses’ story…
But some things never change… If at first you don’t succeed, fail and fail again.
It’s been a long time, but Pink gen of the Knights finally get their time in the spotlight in 9. Pink Sunshine. A Snap of Life 6 and Taken next, then I’ll try to work on the Dayes and OP some more.
I don’t yet have Pets or the patch – lack of money and lack of time to fiddle about fixing CC – I expect it’ll be another month or so before I get it but I’m enjoying seeing shots from it in all of your games!
Well, it’s been two months, but we finally have a new Dayes of Our Lives chapter: Guess who’s back, back again?
I get my thesis back from the proof-reader tomorrow, then I have the edits to do on that and it’ll be handed in some time this week, which means I don’t have to think about it until my viva (oral exam) in November. Although I’ve taken on a new, more intense role at work, I should still have more simming time from now on, so everything will be updated more often than it has been of late. I’ve started playing through the next Knights and Populouses chapters and plan to get another Taken chapter shot soon as well. I’ll also be able to start catching up on months’ worth of reading now. So hooray for that.
Due to the supreme annoyingness of post-Generations saves, the new Dayes of Our Lives chapter, This wasn’t supposed to happen is rather short. But it exists, unlike a new Operation: Population chapter, because their game is too screwed up to play. I have a few rescue plans, but they’re all quite long and involved so it might take some time. I am determined to finish their challenge and story though.
The Knights are much easier to play than the others, and they’re zipping through the generations as a result. Meet the eighth gen in 8. And the Sky was all Violet.
I hope to get Taken updated on Sunday, depending on how much time I get this weekend.
So I managed to get the new Rainbow Knights chapter up: 7. Indigo Here we Go-o.
I have a week off mid-July so I expect that’ll be the next time anything updates – but (assuming the Populous save file works this time) all four blogs should get updated.
So the Dayes, Knights and I are having fun with Generations and there’s a new Dayes of Our Lives update: My Generation(s). Taken’s been a bit on the back burner because in the free time I do have to play, I’ve been playing with the EP and been doing a new Boolprop’s Next Top Model. (Jupiter Jones. I’ll upload him after the competition, but he’s the fella whose picture’s in this update).
The Populouses are pretty unplayable right now. They’ve crashed within minutes the last four times I’ve played them. Maybe their complicated family set-up is too much for the game (though it hasn’t affected the incestuous Knight clan). I don’t know what I’ll do there but I’ll be working on fixing it.
Other than that, my PhD deadline approaches faster than I’d like so don’t expect much simming/blogging/reading through June and July as I finish my first and second drafts. It might increase in August when I’ll mostly be editing to prepare for final submission – we’ll see.
Oh dear, it has been a LONG time, hasn’t it? Anyway, Generations is installing as we speak so here’s their latest exploits, In which we can’t wait for the new EP. Now watch the new EP turn them into a BBFVFS…
A new generation has arrived in 6. It’s Gonna Be a Blue Day.
