State of the Blog- 2/21/13


I’m Still Around I Promise

How are you all?  So when I saw the patch was coming I was busy so I didn’t mind much.  The last thing at the time tieing up my r/l is taxes.  Now I have to go back at some point since the whole caregiver thing is complicated as to how it’s handled apparently and this is the first year I’m doing this full-time with nothing else part-time.  In between I do have time to work on things but there is now another fly in the ointment which can cause delays over the next 23 days.

The mobile home park I live in has been upgrading the electrical system and as part of it they will be randomly turning off the power.  The first time they did this was on Tuesday and it was off for 6 hours.  Well my laptop battery is on the fritz so I haven’t had the chance to buy a new one so no power means not doing anything pretty much.  So I have no clue if this will delay me again but since the notice said it could happen for the next 23 days it is possible.  I’ll let you know about anymore delays caused by this naturally.

So long story short I lost a day I actually had time to work on anything and another to the taxes.  This delayed me working on stories.  The patch broke Master Controller which I use to stage pictures so I can’t work on my Frost chapter which will be heavily staged so until it is fixed I can’t work on it.  Since I use it to allow more than 8 in a house I can’t play a few files so I decided to use a little of the time to do some work on some things on the blog.

Announcing the Download Blog

I’ve been trying to figure out how to better organize my downloads so they are easier to find.  I finally figured out that having pages organized by story would be better and I didn’t want to use all of my space here so I decided to create a blog just to post my download updates.

I am announcing the launch of Jbfairybird’s Sims where all of my downloads will be linked for easy reference.  It will provide an easy way to know when I upload sims from different stories.  Just follow the blog and you will be notified of my posts announcing what I’ve added.  It will permanently be linked on the Downloads and Credits page of this blog.

Currently it is up-to-date for everything I have up now.

Jbfairybird’s Sim Stories Facelift

Over time you’ll notice the story pages and links being updated with a new look since I’m finally learning how to use some of the formatting better.  You’ll also notice some new banners up courtesy of Jessu.   I hope to also tweak the theme a bit in the future but I’m finding it a bit confusing still but at least it will look prettier with time.

Today I plan to use the blog roll (now that I understand it) to update my favorite blog links and that will be all that I play with for today.

Alternate Universe Page Updated

I have linked more stories and updates to stories already listed on my Alternate Universes page dedicated to all of you who are using my sims in your stories.

Here are the updates you can find on that page:

Silverdaybreak’s MacDougall Family-  Silver decided to give Brian Ambrose from Pet Masters his own Pet Masters Challenge but the file crashed so she married him into Gen 6 of her MacDougall family.

Seth in Queens Hive-  Mewmewmentor wanted to use Seth, the main antagonist in Quest for Immortality, as a Baby Daddy in her BC and they had a boy named Aston that has caused his own chaos.

Silverdaybreak’s Dravis Family Traitacy–  My Simming Friend Silver felt bad for poor Ingrid who was a victim of Betsy and the cowplant in Quest for Immortality and gave her a rescuer and a family.  Gen 2 has been linked featuring Ingrid’s son Leland, who Silver graciously let me pick, as heir.

Love for the Ladies-  If you didn’t already know that Liam’s son Borage, a product of a swap with Nay’s Zinnia Montigo-Taye, is a lot like his dad and stars in his own story where he’s trying to bed 1000 women and has children not because he wants to but because of his stupidity.  I linked the story and provided links to specific chapters that Liam has appeared in.

Doll Marine and 100 Baby Plums-  I linked the chapters containing the part of Nyrakick’s story where she handled her portion of the swap with her baby momma Doll Marine and  he and Doll’s Kids: Lark, Linden & Lauren).

Updates Coming Soon

Since I had a chance to play my Blast From the Past file I have a bunch of pictures so I plan to type up and get those chapters up first.  I should get the first one of those up today and 3 more over the next couple of days.

I do plan to work on the Frost Rainbowcy update on Thursday once I can update all of the necessary Nraas mods.  I hope to get it out before University since it might delay me a bit again until certain mods are updated.  This update will include two chapters. I decided to retool them a bit so that both of the final two votes for the Generation 2 story arch can be presented and I can close the Generation 2 story arch the next time it comes up in rotation like I originally planned.

I’m not giving a specific date or order now since patches and new EP installs typically delay me a bit I next will be working on:

  • Gothic Resort Insanity
  • Vanderburg Dynasty
  • Do You Believe In Magic?

I plan to have 3-4 chapters of each these as I pull them out of hiatus.  I will be getting these out before I move Quest for Immortality into Part 2 and the Frost Rainbowcy forward into Gen 3 heir vote following the rotation as written.

  3. I love this background as well. I will have to make a nice little blog banner to match it for you once I redownload some of your sims. I think I emailed you about some of them though.
