Celebrating 4 years of the Loewes

My dear fellow Simmers, today is a special day!

Four years have passed since the day when I published my very first post and my very first page. That’s insane.

Nearly two years have passed since the day I published the teaser to the episodic series of short clips entitled Shards Of My Past. That’s tragic.


Mary and baby Kate, August 1971, Appaloosa Plains


More or less six months have passed since the day I finished editing the first video of the series BUT since it was initially thought of as of a goodbye to my beloved founder Kate Loewe and she’s still alive in my game I haven’t uploaded it yet. That’s shameful and great at the same time.


Kate, July 1979, Appaloosa Plains


You see, I have this ‘special’ bond with this Sim and I just simply cannot bring myself to play the game anymore because her life bar is full and if I start playing again she’ll die. And I cannot do that. That’s weird.

So what should I do? That’s the question. And I need you to help me answer it.


Before you submit your vote in the poll below, I would like to let you all know that I have quit my job in Italy in December and moved back to my home country at the end of February with a big plan – to start my own fashion brand. That’s one of the main reasons why I haven’t been active in the Sims community in the past months.

As you can imagine, making such a big change isn’t always easy so since my life is currently very busy (leaving business apart, I’m lucky to have a big real-life family), I have no spare time to dedicate to the Loewe Legacy at the moment. Personally speaking, I have never planned to abandon my little pixel family completely, but I won’t be able to play and write as often as I was able to while in Italy. I hope you will understand the lack of my activity, but don’t worry, I won’t disappear completely. I have actually written the intro of Chapter Four, I only miss the pictures, however, I’m not completely sure if I want to start another chapter if I’m not sure I will ever finish it.

I know there are my loyal readers that are still waiting for the first episode of Chapter Four.  You – yes you – are the reason that keeps me going and I don’t want to disappoint any of you, my dear friends, fellow Simmers and readers of the LL.

Alright, taking all this info into account, could you please help me decide what to do?

Thank you!

This is the end… of Chapter Three!

Two years, one month and twenty-two days. This is how long it took me to write the third chapter of the Loewe Legacy. At this point, I can only imagine how long it will take me to get to the end of this challenge… if I ever get to the end, that is. As of now, this legacy is going on a hiatus. I have no intention to abandon this story completely, however, I simply don’t have time to play the Sims right now. My gameplay is up to date with the last episode of this chapter, so as you can imagine, it will take me a while before I’ll be able to write new episodes. My save games are safely backed up in my external hard drive and I am looking forward to getting back to them once I have the time!

In the meantime (except of catching up on your stories) I’ll be updating the website, working on some extra content such as the family album, the personal identification cards, a brand new alphabetical list of Sims who appear in this story & character’s biographies, I have also finished editing the first video of the retrospective series Shards Of My Past dedicated to the founder of the Loewe Legacy. You can watch the trailer for the series here.


I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR FOLLOWING ME ON THIS LONG AND CHALLENGING JOURNEY AND FOR GIVING MY STORY A CHANCE. I GREATLY APPRECIATE THE SUPPORT AND FEEDBACK YOU HAVE GIVEN ME IN THE PAST THREE YEARS. IF IT WEREN’T FOR YOU, MY FRIENDS, THE LOEWE LEGACY WOULD BE LONG DEAD BY NOW…

I’ll see you around!

Happy Anniversary!

My dear fellow Simmers!

Today is a special day. Three years have passed since the day I published my very first post. How time flies! – these three words are the title of a special episode which had to be published today. It’s already written, the photos are taken, but there’s still a little tiny problem – 3.33 The Child of Prophecy comes before and it’s still in the making! I will do my best to publish both episodes this month, so please keep the fingers crossed.

Thank you so much for following the Loewe Legacy and for all the love and support you are giving me! I wouldn’t have made it so far without all of you!


COMING SOON

How Time Flies! – a special episode covering 6 years in lives of the Loewe family, narrated by Kate Loewe. You can look forward to 30 new family-album-style photos, nearly 4.000 words and of course, a surprise!

Shards of My Past – a series of short clips focusing on the early life of the founder of the Loewe Legacy Kate, currently in the making. If you haven’t already, check out the teaser:

STAY TUNED!


P.S. Let me know in the comments if you can tell the bunnies apart!

Dear friends and fellow simmers,

I’d like to apologize for such a long wait. I’m sorry guys. I really try hard to stick to my posting schedule, but it’s not always easy. As you see it’s Thursday, not Tuesday. At this point I think I will simply post a new update when it’s ready so from now on you’ll just see the month in which the next episode will be published.

I love the Loewes as much as you do, only recently I simply don’t have enough time to dedicate to their story… I don’t want to abandon them completely, but I would like to let you know that there could be fewer chapters in the forthcoming months. My goal is to finish writing the Chapter Three this summer. There are seven more installments to go. Wish me luck and in the meantime enjoy this episode in which the family celebrates Nathalie’s first birthday!

Thanks for sticking around!

Hey guys!

As some of you may know we’re at the end of the Chapter Two. (Finally, it took me a whole year to get to this point). Since I decided to take a break from blogging I made sure to make the last episode extra long (you’ve got all the September to read it, haha). There’s also some extra stuff at the end of the chapter!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the story so far 🙂

See you in October,

Kate
