Hey dear followers! Well, it is Christmas Day here in New Zealand, and as always, has dawned with blue summer skies and bright sunshine. This year, with my little sister and I finally growing up from the waking-up-at-2-am Christmas excitement, there are no decorations in the house or presents under the fiber optics tree, but I am really looking forward to the delicious dinner and sweet treats 🙂 I know for some of you it is still Christmas Eve, but I hope everyone has a wonderful festive day ❤
Sadly, I do have bad news. As you have read in the title, I will be going onto a hiatus. I know that doesn’t say much considering how long it takes to post each chapter, but throughout that time I am most often working on the legacy, which just shows how much work goes into it. Creating complicated poses and settings is very time consuming, and pairing with the fact I get restricted to an hour per day, I have realised that I am always rushing to get something done. Trying to get each chapter to the standard I want is actually stressing me out WAY more then it should and basically, the legacy has taken pretty much all the fun out of playing Sims.
Now, I know that the only person I can blame is my perfectionist self. I’m always trying to make everything in my story better, which is very annoying. But since I can’t do much about that, and going in game (along with the constant problems which keep cropping up with it) has gotten to the point where it is a chore, I’m going to quit working on the story and making anything for my simblr, and just play the game for the first time in a year. I will take out a lot of my cc + all my saves, get Sunlit Tides, and actually have fun playing Sims. No building or anything, just gameplay and fun picture taking. Because that’s what a game is supposed to be for, right?
I am sorry if this disappoints anyone, though I’m pretty sure it won’t, lol. I am not quite sure how long this hiatus will last, might be for the whole summer, or maybe a few weeks- motivation strikes at the randomest times. I am also not happy with Gabriel and Luc’s faces right now (as I have said before, the appearance of my sims is a big factor in my motivation) so until I get them looking satisfactory, I probably won’t want to work on the story. So the next chapter will probably have everyone’s faces a bit different. I will still be active on WordPress and Tumblr, I just won’t be posting any chapters.
Anyways, I do have a Christmas gift for you guys! It’s a Scandinavian Christmas House which I have been building for the past few weeks. I hope you like it, and have a lovely holiday everyone!
