Introduce Yourself Here!

First of all I apologize for the whole block of text.  I'll have to read the Beginners Guide again to get this formated right.<br /><p>My name is Daniel.  I am 24 years old.  I've lived in Florida for as long as I remember and I am currently a student at Florida State University.  I hope to become a filmmaker, I write short stories and screenplays, in addition to several fan fiction stories.  My current job is working Night Staff on Saturday night to Sunday morning (basically, Night Staff is sort of like security, but we do not have any law enforcement training, we keep up rules and regulations in the dorms, like if someone has their radio too loud in the middle of morning).<br /></p><br /><br /><p>I am interested in machinima (the art of making a form of media through the use of video games) and have done two short films with two different engines (one using Need for Speed: High Stakes and one using The Sims 2).  Right now, I am plotting out a machinima comic book fan fiction series set in the universe of the new Battlestar Galactica TV series (working title: Battlestar Galactica: Born to Run) and have recently purchased Sim City 4: Deluxe Editionto help in creating the metropolis setting of Providence on the planet of Picon (the setting for the first set of stories of the series), as well as possible other towns that the characters encounter throughout the series. </p><br /><br /><p>The premise of the series follows a small group of survivors, who start off as prisoners of war, on the run from the Cylons on the planet of Picon. As of right now, I am plotting out a preface story called Sheba's Story, which follows Captain Elle (Sheba) Malfi (one of the characters in the group) from being accused of sexual harrasment on board the Battlestar Solaria to being found in a bar not too long after the attacks on the 12 Colonies.<br /><br /><p>And looking at most of the the lots and props in the downloads section, I must say I am really impressed with all the buildings (I may be tempted to feature a few of them in series).  I hope everyone keep up the good work.  9.gif  I'm still trying to find the right resources for the series, but it's a task.</p><br /><br /><p>I apologize for the rambling.  Sometimes I say too much or not enough.  But never the less, I must say this site is to Sim City 4 as what ModTheSims2.com is to The Sims 2.  What a great site.  9.gif</p>

<p>Vigilante1987a- Thank you.  I don't mind if people read the post or not, just as long as there's someone who knows that I've posted here.</p>

<p>fire_bird- Thank you as well.  I have yet to install the game to the game.  Though I am a writer (with hopes of being a filmmaker or a professional writer), I hope to do my best in constructing the city of Providence for the machinima comic book fan fiction series I am trying my best to develop (right now, I'm looking at all the buildings to see if there is an airport that has spacecrafts instead of the 747 jets, as well as any buildings that are skycrapers that do not look too Earth based).  But I'm willing to give it a shot when it comes around to it. 9.gif  Plus, I'm still having a problem with the formatting on these posts.</p>

Thank you Camaron and jacqulina for the welcoming.  <img alt="" src="/forum/i/expressions/10.gif" />  I'm still trying to figure out how to format the text so there isn't any of the HTML brackets (and still no luck, so far).

Hi Everybody! How's it going? I just joined Simtropolis and Holy, it's a big site. I need a little getting used to because the layout is quite confusing. Anyways, I hope I have a good time here.

Hi P. I too am sure you will get use to the site and have a joly good time here.

You will find the downloads in the ST-Exchange (STEX) and the Modds & Downloads (former Modding Files). In the Omnibus you find some good tutorials and the rules of this site (good to get to know).

I would recommend you start reading the thread: INFO: Getting Up and Running. For inspiration on how to used the custom content you should have a look in the CJ section (City Journal).

Finaly, you could post in the thread: Introduce Yourself Here!

Have Fun.

I merged PlayaDJ's thread with this one, though oddly the posts were rearranged. Oh well... welcome to the site Playa!

I guess I never really introduced myself here.

I'm StegSC, I came over here from Simcitycentral just because I really wanted to frequent a bigger forum. I already have a CJ here, you can check it out by clicking my signature.

So, hello!
