Introduced Species: a Strangerville Story- COMPLETE 30/03/20

Introduced Species: A Strangerville Story
STARTED 16/03/20
SPOILER WARNING: This story will follow the general story of the Strangerville Game Pack. Do not read if you do not want spoilers about the ███████, the ███████ or the ███████.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Bad language, death



. This is not a challenge, just my Strangerville playthrough told in a very experimental way.
. There is a character in this who is in my CEA. His character in the CEA is canon. This story is 'alternate universe' so this side of his story isn't canon. That said, this story won't spoil the other, and vice versa.
. This story is made up of screenshots that are heavily edited in GIMP and Paint Tool SAI, as well as a few minor artistic or editing touches of my own.
. This story was six chapters, but has since been split into three parts. This is why there are so many 'TO BE CONTINUED' bits.
. This is inspired by Hrootbeer's Strangerville Mysteries, and the official Welcome to Strangerville!
. I probably won't update this fast because it takes a lot of work to put together. Things may look very different over time as I hopefully learn more about composition and such.

Spoiler:
I love Stangerville's town slogan.

Ollie seems to be getting stuck with one deadly crisis after another.

I can tell I'm going to enjoy reading from Ollie's point of view.

WOW!!! :thup: :applause: This is going to be so cool. I can't imagine the work it takes to achieve it, but it is seriously awesome. I still love Erwin Pries and I'm excited to see an Atwood even if it isn't a connected story. I'm glad you stuck to Strangerville. I love that crazy, f'd up town :) I am looking forward to the scenes with the Mother. Those are going to be so cool!

Ooh yes, I love Strangerville stories! It makes me wanna play the GP myself!

Spoiler:
I'm only on chapter 4 of your CEA (I'm so slow with reading atm, I'm on two books rn because it's taking me so long to read one), but I had remind myself who Oliver Attwood was eugh. I'm terrible with remembering character names...

It sounds really promising from your opening and I really love the artistic and creative choice you've made with editing the photos. It feels like a comic book!


Can't wait to see more.

NotSoEvilPepsi- Awesome stuff! Thanks for reading : 3
peachy123uk- That means a lot, thank you! It will be hard work (I'm going to aim for weekly/bi-weekly updates) but I'm glad you like it. : )
108sims- Thanks so so much for your feedback!
Spoiler:
Yeah, the slogan I stole from the intro card you get when you first play Strangerville. Let's hope things go better for Ollie this time : P Yeah I hope you will like his POV.

Hrootbeer- Thank you so much! I'm so happy you like my little experiment haha.
Spoiler:
I looove messed-up stuff so much. Most of my writing projects are F'd sideways in some way or another so S'ville gives me a great excuse, plus A-Z got me wanting to play the actual storyline through.

graymondaysleep: The Game Pack is awesome, honestly it's so worth it. A sandbox game being given a little story direction is actually a really fun move IMO.
Spoiler:
And don't rush honestly! After all I'm only halfway through your legacy, way behind on other simlit, and still only 1/4 of the way through Bram Stoker's Dracula :P I'm really happy you like the direction of it though, thank you so much for your comments!

Spoiler:
I love how Ollie or maybe Erwin(presumably?) are talking about censorship, and the beginning of the chapter is censored.

So is the colander head 200 years old, or is he making stuff up about when the crater was formed. In Sims it could go either way :lol:

Love the kid interrupting Ollie's sleep.

Ollie is so blunt I love it.

Ollie is giving everyone free hugs in exchange for a bug planted on them!

Poor Dylan, but his voicemails are hilarious. :D

I don't like the dude in the bunker. A no aliens sign on the door, no way I'm talking to you.

Uh what are the nasty rumors?

Yeah I feel bad for the residents of Strangerville too since the ordinary citizens have no idea what's going on.

I love how you included the broken fence part.

"Don't listen to the rumors! I'm not in love with my plane!"

Spoiler:
Mind-probing journalism scum! :rotfl: I really love this format and found what he overhears with the bugs really hilarious. Poor Penelope :grin: I hope you use Erwin's father or at least Dr. Patel or something from the Strangerville Mysteries in what he uncovers. I regret not having fleshed those characters out more. But I can't wait to find out what he discovers.

108sims- Thank you so much for your comment : 3

Spoiler:
Honestly I'm glad Strangerville is in the Sims universe since I can get away with all the military/scientists being gullible as hell. I haven't even figured out who is writing those intros yet actually. XD The crater was formed 200 years ago, but the actual lab explosion was two weeks ago roughly. Yeah the library scene was just so hilariously cruel : P Yeah I just had to do something weird with George Cahill after Ollie made that face at his recording... XD


Hrootbeer- Thank you so much as always! : D

Spoiler:
Unfortunately this one won't have any cameos, mainly because I didn't want to steal too much from others' Strangerville playthroughs, and I wanted to do something shorter than normal. The story is pretty close to the game with very little of my own bits thrown into it this time around. I haven't really built up much of a character or story for Erwin in this one to be completely honest XC Glad you love that line from George and Ollie's meeting though. XD


peachy123uk Thank you very much Peachy for your support < 3

Spoiler:
I'm glad you like the bugged messages. : 3

this is just so so so good!!!

Spoiler:
i know a lot of people were complaining because ts4 is lacking in lore but like, i feel like strangervillie is the best thing theyve done for the game story wise. theres so much going on here and you e only scraped the surface in your story!!

im really looking forward to seeing more! ive only seen strangerville being played through by CallMeKevin nad he doesnt really do that "properly". so im really delving into this story!


again, your setting and narrative is so unique and interesting!

Spoiler:
YEAH A lot of people complained about Strangerville, but I love it because it's got more of a story direction, so it's fun for the storytellers, but the people who play it sandbox just moaned about it. I really want more story/adventure packs. It gives you enough lore to go on, and enough lore to expand your own story out of it which is why I love it. Yeah, I find like gaming Youtubers and reviewers tend to rush through things so it's good to see it all being explored. This story isn't really as in-depth as my other ones but it's good fun. I'm so glad you like it though, I'm happy you enjoy it ^u^

Spoiler:
I'm thinking maybe the redacted text is Erwin?

I love how giant the hole in the fence is. :lol:

Yeah Ollie, you need to forget about the ethics entirely. Not like the paper will know how he obtained the information anyway if he doesn't tell.

Possessed Erwin is scary, especially with those purple eyes!

Love how Erwin just has a hazmat suit.

I wonder what happened during the gap in Ollie's memory.

Ollie's getting more into the mystery than really writing up his article now.

Flirting is one way to get answers xD Ollie really has a big ego.

I like his conflict that Dylan would be proud of him, but his mother would think about how she raised him better.

Spoiler:
Yeah, this is very much where the ego kicks in. Also I do wonder how Erwin acquired a lot of this stuff, to be honest. XD

yes can't stand the colour purple (lol). Well I don't know what happens in other stories, so I don't mind a talking plant.
