Thank you so much for your responses, everyone. I spent a lot of time with this story, and it’s still with me, even though it’s in Sims 4. I had contemplated doing a proper story in Sims 4, and it made me appreciate all over again the effort and time sims storytellers take. I just didn’t have the time for it. :(
I booted up Sims 2 again though. :P
Aw, I’m sorry to hear that you lost your TS2 town! :( I used to really love the Simtopi story and all the love and care you put into the characters, their stories… and the visuals are still one of the best I’ve seen in Sims stories. Seemingly simple but very evocative. I kinda fell off the radar myself too, so I lost track of the story at some point and I can very well understand how these things kind of taper off. Still (continued) –
It’s nice seeing their familiar faces in TS4, although I also can’t help wondering how the story would continue and whether certain characters get their happy ending :) So I can imagine anon’s question!
The story really should have continued. At that point, life had gotten in the way big time, and losing my town was the icing on that cake. I actually still have a lot of the lots, and the Sims, so really it shouldn’t be too hard to put everything together if I needed to put the shots together.
It’s so discouraging when you lose your hood/game etc. all your work… not to mention, life happening too. Completely understandable. I always appreciate your work, whether it’s sims, illustration, or what have you.
Thank you very much! I am trying to draw more than I play the Sims, but lately that’s failing too. :D
I don’t feel let down, but Simtopi is my favorite Sims story and I often wonder where it would have gone. I am definitely curious about the ending and would love to read it if you publish.
I really appreciate this, and I am sorry that I just stopped. I’m thinking of how I can give you guys the ending. I want to plan it in a way that will do it justice.
