[GODP] Goals of Daniel Pleasant: Tale of a Sims Football Patriarch

Many simmers’ stories tend to focus on Daniel Pleasant’s immediate family (Mary-Sue, Angela and Lilith), where Daniel is portrayed primarily as “the type of husband he is” (spoilers withheld).

There are fewer tales that discuss Mr Pleasant’s athletic career in greater detail, and about Daniel’s relationships with other sims (in his family and elsewhere in Pleasantview) who share his interest in sports.

In GODP, Daniel Pleasant was a footballer (soccer player) before he became a coach. How successful is he as a patriarch, on and off the pitch? Will Daniel score the “goals” he wants in his career and family life? Or will he endure the shame of being shown the Red Card?

Pleasant Family Early 1980s: Jeff, Diane, Daniel, JenniferThe tale begins with Daniel and his younger sister Jennifer, during their early exposure to the sport in (Sims 1) Willville.

How will Daniel’s attitude to family and football evolve, as his life changes through the decades? Is he doomed to repeat his mistakes, or will he learn to be a better person?

GODP takes place in the same Sims universe as PVCS vs STM 2015/2035.

As much as PVCS vs STM makes “what happens during a football match” accessible to simmers, GODP aims to familiarize simmers with “what happens in the career of a footballer and coach”.

To be clear, it’s Sims2Player, NOT AldoHyde, who watches football week in, week out.

AldoHyde embarked on this project, and the preceding PVCS Tales, because he fancied a challenge outside his scientific comfort zone of STM. Daniel Pleasant is NOT Kent Capp/Monty, so… read on to find out 😉

How will their 2035 counterparts behave this time…?


The 2035 Match is more Capp-centric, as opposed to the Monty focus of my Main STM Series.

PVCS vs STM Jersey Color CodesThe 2035 Match is written with greater emphasis on the characters’ thoughts, emotions and motivations — unlike the 2015 Match, which is written as a simple parody of my Main STM Series.

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

The 2015 Match is a simple parody of the [Main STM Series]. Some background knowledge of the premade storylines of Veronaville, Strangetown and Pleasantview is also helpful. The [2035 Sequel] has more character depth.

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.
