So with regards to my imminent Sims plans I have some more info…
As you know already the title of my project is ‘The Stanford Prison Experiment’. I thought this might ring some bells with some of youse guise, but clearly you have no idea what I'm on about >_<
In summary though:
The Stanford Prison Experiment was a psychological study conducted in the 1970s by a Mr Zimbardo. Volunteers were set up in a makeshift prison, and were randomly allocated the role of either prisoner or guard. The idea was to see how these roles and the environment impacted the participants behaviour.
I plan to do the same, but with Sims ; )
Naturally it wont be as straightforward as that- there will be definite elements of manipulation on my part- we must keep it interesting after all… Bahaha!
But anyways, let’s get to the ‘volunteers‘…
-If I plan to use your Sim and you don’t want me to, just say.
- I will of course be mentioning in the story that they're your Sim, with links and all that jazz.
Random, Bitten, Ruby- I’ve thieved your Simselves. Amiee I tried to get yours but it just wasn’t having it, so instead I downloaded Evil Esther.
Y’see, I think it’d be cool to not only have a few Simselves in this story, but some regular Sims too. So far the only recruitment my end has been Mort:
I don’t want only regular Sims for this though, in fact I think it’d be quite fun to have some Sims from other stories take part.
First on my list is naturally Zeus Ugworth, so Bitten if you could be awesomely awesome and upload him to MediaFire or summat for me that’d be grand.
Clairezy I’d quite like to use Apple Rotten if you’re okay with that.
I have my eye on Gage Uglacy but I don’t know if Candi would mind.
I think I might stick The Doctor in there too.
Other than that, ergh I dunno. I plan to recruit here rather than the forums because I know the main response will be ’feel free to choose any Sim from my studio’, and that’s not what I’m after. I wouldn’t expect people to make Sims specially for moi unless they were really inclined, but I’d definitely like people to suggest specific Sims that they’d like me to include.
Of course just finding people to volunteer Sims is only part of the problem.
Considering my computer is notoriously spasmodic when it comes to installing Sims successfully it’s somewhat hit and miss regarding who I can get my grubby hands on. The only real success I’ve had recently is getting Bitten’s Simself as made by Kelle- so Kelle if you have any Sims you think would be suited to this project or if you’d like to make one fresh liek that would be awesomesauce.
And if anyone else has a Sim to volunteer that‘s wicked. I can’t guarantee that they’d work in my game or even that I’d choose them, but we’ll see how it goes.
So… what do you all think?
(P.s.- I will of course be updating Escape to Riverview before I start all this shiz).
