The Knights are back! (As are the Dayes)

Screenshot-1516

I am very aware of the irony of an ultra-speedy legacy being the least frequently updated thing ever, but the Knights are back in 6. It’s hip to be square. Gen 7 are children now, so you may see them this side of Christmas.

The Dayes are also back, in Ten’s Nervous Headache.

Also, for those interested the the research side of things, I’ve submitted a paper about Simblr that will hopefully come out next year, am working on one about Electronic Arts which I’m intending to submit once TS4 is out and I have a couple more planned to work on over the next few months. Will keep you posted.

More Dayes… and more of the Knights

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).

The Dayes of Puddle’s reign are over

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.

Dreaming of a Knight Christmas?

I had hoped to update Kingsfield and Taken by now, but the best laid plans and all that.

Still, I have a Knights update for you at long last: 3. Just the things that you do in this garden, AND a Dayes one: Park Life.

May your Dayes be merry and bright

And may all your Christmases be Knight!

Happy Christmas everyone!

New Dayes

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…

The Knights are Back!

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.

Uh-oh, the Dayes have pets…

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…

In the Pink

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!
