Second Chances [Updated 06/15/17]

Postby orangeplumbob » January 22nd, 2017, 4:00 pm

This is a different type of Legacy, it doesn't start out all sunshine and rainbows. In fact, it's the complete opposite. This is Second Chances, and like the title says, it's all about getting a second chance.

Welcome back to Boolprop! :wave:
Spoiler:
I JUST finished the two parts(don't fret, I'm a quick reader) and I can't wait to see how Elijah's story unfolds! I used to really enjoy Different Rain and I read in your welcome post. I'm sorry to hear that your TS3 game fell apart. But I really enjoyed the photography in this. I've always seen TS4 as very bright and sunny when it comes to art style and I really like how you took darker material and made it work in the TS4 world. Seriously can't wait to see more!

Thank you. It is difficult to make Sims 4 dark, unlike the Sims 3. Different Rain had a lot of dark story lines and it was easy to use the game to make it so. But I am finding out if there's a will, there's a way. We'll see how dark and sinister I can make Sims 4. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

So, just an update. I have written out Chapter 2 completely, and am working on the last few pictures I need to obtain in game. However the next two to three chapters I need to come up with a story still. I have, however, worked on my "LEGACY" part of the plot with the story, and finished writing six other chapters or so. There should be around 10 or 11 Chapters for Elijah's Generation.

Almost forgot. Anyway, new update! Chapter 4: Death in Prison I've also done some new style in my photographs. I think it looks better, and more unique to this story.

This is a very powerful story, and a clever legacy idea.

I've been reading through this and it's amazing! Love a narrative legacy.

Spoiler:
Sorry if this was asked, I haven't look through the thread too much. How difficult was setting up the prison scenes? The poses are so expressive and go so well with your writing. I imagine this whole project is a lot work.

Thank you. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Spoiler:
As for the prison scene, it was somewhat difficult when the sims weren't cooperating, but mostly it was easy. The biggest issue I had was that the prison lot is on the 64x64 Central Park lot in San Myshuno, and with having about 20 sims on one lot, I had MAJOR lag on my laptop, and sometimes it would not pause when I needed it to and would miss an opportune moment for a photo. The Prison I build long ago (when GTW came out), and did some major editing to it, so that was a lot more work than setting up my scenes.
