I guess it might not be completely clear to everyone what's actually going on here at EA and what the creator's are actually doing, so I figured I'd take some time out to tell you.
The groups of creators have been split into 2 rooms, one room for Machinima and the other for Custom Content. Everyone started out by creating their accounts at the new Sims 3 Exchange and then got right into the game, playing around with the new features and getting used to the new user interface. Since then it has been all about creating content and uploading it to the Exchange, populating their profiles with the very first content that will be available to you when the game ships.
The Machinima Artists have been writing stories and shooting in game movies, while the CC Creators have been putting "Create A Style" through its paces, matching colors and textures to generate some great looking alternatives to the stock game objects, hairs, furnishings, walls and pretty much everything else in the game, given that there is hardly anything that you can't restyle in the game now.
In between creating they are being whisked away to a studio for a quick makeover and PR briefing before being interviewed at length about all things Sim. These interviews will be used to generate a kind of documentary about the event and the creators, just like they did way back with the first Sims 2 event. You can expect to see this posted online or bundled with something on disc very soon.
The film crews have been following our every move all week as well (as I write this there is someone filming me blogging… how freaky is that?). They are moving around the room grabbing shots of people playing Sims 3 and creating content.
More detailed blogs later, although I also have a few commitments to interviews during the afternoon.. I'll tell you about those tonight or tomorrow.
