StrangeTown Monty 2.06(B): The Patriarch (Part 2)

What exactly is the [Veronaville Device]? How does it impact Antonio Monty & his kids?

How will the “Tale of Two Feuding Patriarchs” (ie. Patrizio Monty vs Consort Capp) sound from an outsider’s perspective – [Sepp Rossi], whose Monte Vista political family escaped the Veronaville Feud?

How will this info affect the choices made by his fellow Racing Man, Dr Walter Baptiste, patriarch of Hyde Dynamic Veronaville?

Notes:
– The [birth order of the Montys and Capps] differs from the canon
– New Intro Sequence – Music by TheTimMan
– Thanks to the Chronosym Twins for filming most of the Sims 3 scenes

StrangeTown Monty 2.05(B): Grimm Prospects (Part 2)

[UPDATE – April 8 2015]
(1) Someone is fired from Hyde Dynamic…
(2) Two New Polls

Vidcund Curious decides to strike before it’s too late. The investigation continues at Olive Specter’s yard, as the Two Racing Men, Xu and Ivanov, deliver an outsider’s perspective on the situations in STM. Kent Capp gets a flood of memories from 1997, and wonders where Bianca Monty‘s place is in all of that.

If STM 1.10-1.11 are a parody of “possible accusations of Gary Stu”, then 2.05(B) is a parody of “bait and switch”. The audience sees the Racing Men on the screen, but it is the story of the main characters that is advancing at that time.

The Capp siblings’ banter is based off a real-life conversation the author had in 1997, the year GTR98 was released.

StrangeTown Monty 2.04: Friends in High Places

General Buzz Grunt executes Step One of his plan. The Hyde Dynamic Secret Project Team discusses the Veronaville Device, as Kent Capp seeks medical attention. What the Fringe happened at Ajay Loner & Erin Beaker’s house…?

(Bianca Monty has been temporarily sidelined for this minor arc. But her status as “main female character” remains intact.)

[Watch on YouTube page] [YT Comments]

Clarifications (Do NOT read until you’ve finished watching):
“Veronaville Device Project” is NOT the same as the “Secret Project”.

I turned 3 of my most trusted Racing Cars into 3 Scientists with Clearance Level 9. All three are minor characters who will NOT dominate the series’ overall focus, and have no prior history in the Sims canon.

Hyde Dynamic *is* a “ZZ Top Corp”. These guys (& their beards) are protected under the same “permanent ban” clause as my Racing Videos. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Clarifications (Do NOT read until you’ve finished watching)
(1) Loner did not park his car on the Smith lot itself, but somewhere nearby.
(2) “Night of Kent’s return” – See STM 1.11.

Compare Bianca’s version of the “1988 Swing Incident” in STM 1.09 with Kent’s version in this episode. [VOTE: Whose version is correct?]
