Different Roads - Extra

Having survived the big and traumatic prequel story (traumatic for me and the Sims involved :)  ), I wanted to make some kind of 'making of' post...  April's story in particular was a turning point in how I play the game and I felt like writing something about that.  I also wanted to share a few of the 'real' pictures from back then, when it all happened in-game, as I'm not happy with them enough to use them in the actual story (camera too far away, walls down, etc, etc...).  This is kind of long and explains how the story came about, totally written out of my own desire to reminisce :) ... so feel free to skim read/totally ignore the text and just look at the pictures, if you like :)

Progress and Autonomous Weirdness :)

I'm working on the pictures for the second part of the prequel story... although I got sidetracked a bit... or maybe I should say, my sims sidetracked me :)

Sorry to anyone who's waiting for part two of my prequel story... real life stuff  is getting in the way big-time at the moment, and my cliffhanger is hanging a lot longer than I planned!

Hopefully the r/l things will settle down in the next couple of days, and I'll have part two up by the end of the week...
