MySims News

Please note I'm currently working on the new site. I didn't want to take the site offline though, so you can still visit it. However me working on the site while it's still online means a lot of the pages will appear wonky. But not to worry, it won't take too long. Happy

Happy news! If you are a regular here or if you follow me on social media (Twitter, Facebook page, Facebook group, Instagram or Tumblr), you'll probably know about my pregnancy. I posted about health issues and pregnancy complications in January.

Well a few weeks ago on February 11 (a day after my birthday) I gave birth to a healthy baby boy. His name is Levi and he's our third son. Brothers Seth and Quinn are really proud.

As you can probably imagine I'm a bit busy with the baby at the moment. We're not getting much sleep (if any) so I definitely need some time to recover.

Whenever I have some free time (and energy) I will post custom content, as always!

Normally I would post this message on the blog, rather than the news section. But I also realise that most people probably don't actively follow the blog. Hence the decision to post it here instead.

Some of you may know that my partner tszcheetah and I have been expecting our third baby since shortly after we got married in May. I kept in mind that I had pre-eclampsia during my previous pregnancy, and chances were that I would be suffering from this again in another pregnancy, but this wasn't set in stone. Now fortunately as far as we know I'm not currently suffering from pre-eclampsia. But I am being monitored closely. And I'm experiencing a lot of pain (and pain attacks) and complications in this pregnancy, leaving me unable to work on anything that has anything to do with my computer. This includes my job and unfortunately also SNW. I'm mostly on bed rest, so I'm either on the sofa or in bed. I hate that I'm not able to do anything. But I'm mostly in and out of the hospital at the moment, for regular appointments, but also for tests and what not. I'm really tired and ill, and with only 4 weeks to go until the due date, I'm just not very active at the moment. And I wanted to let you all know. As always I will still be back, the moment my health allows me to work at my PC again.

There's a small chance I will work on the site (Laundry Day stuff pack article and perhaps a video) later this week, seeing as we purchased a Steam Link device, so I can use my games whilst in the living room. I have yet to try this out, but I'm eager to do so. I miss playing The Sims (or any other game for that matter!)

I would also like to point out that because of my health issues and my due date being in less than 4 weeks (I'm due on my birthday, Feb 10), we are likely to be very slow responding to messages and comments regarding the website and the Graphics Rules Maker. Especially since my husband is also ill at the moment, and he's the one behind the Graphics Rules Maker tool. We will get back to your messages when we are feeling better. Thank you so much for reading and understanding.

Love xoxo ♥

Came across this interesting article on Nintendo Everything, where they talk about MySims Friends, a cancelled Nintendo 3DS title from 2010. One of the Nintendo Everything readers named Mattrio had an interview with art director Xavier Garcia. Garcia posted images from MySims Friends a couple of years ago. More recently, Garcia was at liberty to share some information about the game.

“StreetPass and other Nintendo connectivity and was essentially an online only game.”

EA cancelled the game because they wanted to steer the entire Sims franchise in a different direction. Unfortunately MySims wasn't part of that new direction.

Behaviour Interactive was hoping to implement the ability to customise the environment in the new MySims Friends game. In the images below you can see how you would be able to take a regular house and turn it into a different style. Styles included Goth, Sporty, Futuristic, Cute, Tasty, Nature, and Fancy.

Here are a few of Garcia's MySims Friends images and captions:

MySims Friends

This is a little old, but the statute of limitations is passed on this (or so I hope! lol). This is a visual target for a MySims project I was involved with a few years ago. The project has been scrapped since.

 

MySims Friends

Another look at some MySims work, this time is a new character that was going to be introduced. We settled for the one on the right, but I had a soft spot for the first version. His name was Roscoe and he was an explosives specialist.

 

MySims Friends

Yep, more MySims concept art! We were experimenting with a Ninja village setting and still looking for a visual style.

 

MySims Friends

A big part of what was going to be the new MySims game was that you could customize your environments, so here I was exploring how you could take a basic house and each version was a different flavor. So we had the default, goth, sporty, futuristic, cute, tasty, nature and fancy.

 

MySims Friends

These designs were just basic explorations for different silhouettes and architecture

And here is an overhaul on a flower shop.

MySims Friends

A big part of what was going to be the new MySims game was that you could customize your environments, so here is an in-depth look at how the exploration went. You can see how you can customize one house to have several different flavors, what kind of different houses you can have and how you can overhaul the shops.

Personally I'm really sad that the MySims franchise came to an end. I always liked the MySims games, all of them actually. I have all of them, on all platforms. I would have definitely bought MySims Friends as well!

For those of you wondering why I've been so inactive lately, here's why! I gave birth to Quinn last month. I've been pretty much busy recovering ever since (I had preeclampsia, and a breech baby, so I had to get an emergency cesarean), and of course I've been busy with the baby.

(and no, this isn't my first baby. He has an older brother :P )
