It just occurred to me that some of you might want to read my Sims 2 stories. They're my main creative endeavour at the moment. Actually, working on them is slowly but surely kicking the noises at the back of my head that say I can't write fiction - so it's been pretty good for me . I have two main stories going at the moment - the Friends family and the Grunt family. They're both premade Maxis families that I decided to run with. The Friends family started off as two college students sharing a house who became a gay couple with minimal work on my behalf . The Grunt family is this Army-mad family with a single father and three sons. I've written the stories with very different objectives in mind. All of the photos are genuine screenshots, but they're not all genuine gameplay shots, if you see what I mean. With the Friends family, I've made prodigious use of cheat codes to achieve some of the effects (especially the alien abduction, which would take forever if I just waited for it to happen). The Grunt family is the total opposite - I played the game, took loads of screenshots, and wrote the story around them. The Friends family: Chapter 1: The Friends at College (click "next" to go to the next picture) Chapter 2 - Strangetown nightmares Chapter 3 is on hold until I get Nightlife, which is on hold until all my favourite modders have revised their hacks to be compatible with Nightlife's code . Buggered if I'm playing the version of the game Maxis released, with all its bugs. The Grunt family: Chapter 1: Tank goes to college Chapter 2: General Buzz's friend Chapter 3: Ripp's Secret Chapter 4 is on hold pending me finishing Chapter 1 of my Super Sekrit Project, which is - yet another Sims story. Anyone would think I was obsessed . If you like either/both stories please comment - also, if you have an EA account and like the stories that are hosted there, please rate them & sign my guestbook. Thanks!
