Hi guys!

I just started a new Let's Play series on Youtube. I'm playing all the Pleasantview Families (including the Burbs and Oldies), following their original story lines as written by Maxis.

I have the Ultimate Collection with all stuff packs and expansions, plus a literal TON of mods and custom content. Check it out if you're interested! I will post updates here when new videos are released.

***UPDATE***
This thing has gotten HUGE (with almost 100 videos), so I've updated the links below to the playlists for each season instead of listing them individually.

PLAYLISTS (SEASONS 1-5):

SEASON 1 PLAYLIST
SEASON 2 PLAYLIST
SEASON 3 PLAYLIST
SEASON 4 PLAYLIST
SEASON 5 PLAYLIST

I'm currently working on Season 5, with new videos being published at least twice a week. I'll update here when the next season starts.

Other videos in this series:

Remodeling the Caliente Condo
Speed Build - Pleasantview Workforce Center (Welfare Office)
Speed Build - Pleasantview Cemetery
Speed Build - Pleasantview Retirement Home

If you like my videos, I've also created a companion blog - Pleasant Sims - where I'm sharing my gameplay rules, mods I use, Bios and Family Trees for all the Pleasantview Sims.

In ep3/ Caliente you mention a mod to give more likes and dislikes. I went to your page, but it's not listed there. Would you mind pointin me in that direction so I can look at it as it sounds interesting?

Sure! Here's the link: http://modthesims.info/d/609675

It actually replaces some of the redundant ones with new ones like great dancer, influential, education, etc. I really like it!

I'm still working on my huge mod list for the blog. I hope to have it done by this weekend.

UPDATE - Finally finished linking to all my mods. New Page up on the Blog - Mods List.

I use Camtasia. It's not free, but it has a lot of really awesome video editing options.

Hey there! Fellow LP'r here, actually I do the same theme lol. I'm in the middle of watching your video and I'm really liking it and just curious, I never knew Maxis gave out an order guide in which order to play the households, I think that's really neat. Could you help me find where I could see more of it? Plz & thank you ^_^ (Now to go back to watching the first episode lol)

Hi!

The household order was from the Official Sims 2 Prima Game Guide and you can view it for free online here: https://archive.org/details/The_Sim...ide_Prima_Games. Page 18 is where that part starts. It also has household playing order for Veronaville and Strangetown (still called Strangeville in the Guide).

Thank you for watching my videos! I will check yours out too when I get some time!

Hey pleasantsims, I watched your video. I liked it and the way you play, however when I went to check your blog, I got a message about mal-ware on my computer and one of those 'you have won Amazon' things on my i-pod. So, not cool at all. This needs to be taken care of. I do not want to download bad stuff from the link. Just letting you know so you can take care of it.

Hi @Mom50409 !

Thanks for letting me know! I got the same thing this morning, but it HAS BEEN FIXED!!!

So sorry about that! I don't know how my site got hacked, but they apparently injected some spammy re-direct code into my files. It has all been cleaned and everything is safe again. I also paid for some super security so it doesn't happen again.

Thank you!!

@pleasantsims thanks for the link, I appreciate it

Yeah it's kind of cool how we make the same types of series but in kind of slightly different ways. I'm still always learning/getting new advice on this game even after +10 years playing it myself and that's what makes watching others (like yourself) so enjoyable. I don't post as often as you but I'm a slow learner to all of this. I look forward to watching more of your videos and see where you take your interpretation of the Premades!

I know. I love how everyone has their own way of playing, and I always find it entertaining.

You do! I'm from Arkansas, but I live in Colorado right now so my accent is a little subdued (been here for four years). We're planning to move back to Arkansas in the next 1-2 years, because we miss the south.

That's funny because I'm from Portland, Oregon and I've been in Charleston for the last couple of years and I've started to develop an accent lol! Only slightly but I catch myself all the time on little words and my boyfriend who was born and raised here has been teasing me too. We want to eventually go back to Oregon or maybe even somewhere slightly different in the NW but just back to the NW lol. But we have a few things to make sure are in order here before we can that will take a couple of years too.

That is funny! We're in opposite situations. It sucks being homesick. I am a southern girl and I don't like being in the midwest. Lol. Good luck to you. I hope you make it back where you want to be!

New episode uploaded - The Burbs! I had to condense 3 hours of play time into a 45-minute video, so it's packed with events. It's very Lucy-heavy this round. She aged up to a teen and went through a lot of changes.
