I’m closing MXM to start something new and exciting!

Yes, i’m currently organizing the end of MXM and its related projects.

But wait a moment! It’s not that i retire from 3Dx. I’m just going for a fresh restart, something completely new and exciting. But first give me a break and let me try to explain what’s going on.

Short version:

After more than 10 years of being MaXsiM i got a bit tired and feel stressed out. There’s a ton of further issues that lead to the fact that i feel a bit like walking towards a dead end. If i want to continue creating 3Dx i must start something new. And that requires a consequent reset.

I’m going to make a “soft” move to a new identity, so this blog and Luisa3D.com will stay open, Patreon.com/maxsim as well. 

Long version:

Over the last few weeks i’ve been in a very thoughtful mood regarding my MXM world of 3Dx porn. It seems like times keep on changing, but MXM standing still. Something like that.

At first, i’m very sorry that i gave you a kind of positive look into the future in my first post this year. It makes me feel like an idiot now. Just after i’ve posted it, i realized that i actually have reached a blind alley.

Let me start right at the beginning. I create porn machinima and 3Dx for about 17 years now. It always was a great way to express my erotic fantasies, i enjoyed creating, but it is also a very work intense and – in recent 8 years – expensive hobby.

Since much longer than 10 years i’m working under the synonym MaXsiM and run this blog since October 2007. I always was hoping to build up a community of fans, large enough to balance my costs and – even more like that – inspire and motivate me to go even further with my stories.

The latter really worked great, during the first few (Sims 2) years in special. The Sexvilla years also were great fun! I’ve met a super cool and interested community at gamerotica.com – what is now thri.xxx. Not to forget all the people who joined Luisa3D.com and left all those kind comments. Really, i love you guys and gals! Thanks for all your support!

But for me it became very clear that things can’t just go on like they used to. When i looked at the Luisa3D.com site stats a few days ago, it opened my eyes. Only about 120 people have seen the latest episode “Blind Trust” during the first 6 months. I love that episode and it was a shitload of work. I’m greatful for every visitor, but 120 in 6 months? I’m not used to such low numbers 0o

But hey, don’t get me wrong. I don’t blame anybody! Anybody but me. When i got tired of SexVilla about 2 years ago and finally moved into the world of real 3D erotic, i knew it would be hard. I had set up some goals to myself – and today i must confess that i failed to reach them. It’s my fault.

You know, i’m not getting younger. My personal life is way more complicated now than it was a couple of years before. And when i finally have enough free time it’s hard to find the motivation to work on big projects that take months to finish. It’s not only disappointing for you, the viewer, when new content takes so long, it’s also disappointing for me, the creator. Every year and again i need to cancel projects, reschedule stuff, always hoping that next year will be better. I’m tired of that.

Also, my personal fun-factor is at an all time low. I always feel pressure and want to deliver. Basically i have no problem with the pressure of deadlines, but MXM is my hobby and i want to do it to balance out my “real life” troubles and simply want to have some fun. I know i sound bitchy, as a pro i should develop a different mindset. I virtually love my characters, i take my stories too personally. I should build up a more artistic work ethic, keep more distance. But it takes time.

Another – very simple – reason is that it takes really much time to create high-quality 3D-rendered stories. You have no idea. Due to my personal life doings i don’t have that much time anymore. I could change things if i would have a big followership on patreon, for example. But that’s nothing i can count on atm.

Technically, i have trouble with some of my sites and social media appearances as well. The world has changed during the last years. Most pageviews come from bots and spammers. I also believe that my twitter is pretty much useless due to the same problem. Of course, except one or two handful of good people <3

And finally, i release everything for free. It’s clear that you love this concept :) On the other hand, in my country they say “Free stuff is worthless”. Could it be that my content already got the image of being crappy? It’s a fact, that i’m more or less the only creator that gives away full-range interactive high-quality stories for less than a warm handshake. That was always my concept: Give it away for free and receive some love back. Well, the lack of feedback “love” really hurts me sometimes. My comment sections are pretty much died out. But that’s also my fault, i think. Social Media is a flower that needs to be carefully watered.

I guess i could come up with a list of further weird explanations. But let me nail it here and talk more about what’s going on in the future.

I don’t know. I don’t have a plan. One thing is for sure: I want to continue to create 3Dx! But in a way that makes more sense for me, and brings back the excitement.

After 10 years, i believe that the MXM label is a bit rusty. I changed the direction too often, released too unsteady and irregular on too many platforms. No wonder, when people don’t get too excited anymore when they see my name somewhere.

And to be very honest, now that we speak so open-heartedly ;) i got a bit tired of my pseudonym as well! Never liked “MaXsiM” too much anyway.

So i’m going to stop all my projects, get rid of them step by step, have a long break, learn new stuff, fool around, have fun…

…and then: Will come back with a new name, a whole new artist identity and portfolio – and new content!

Luisa3D.com will stay open! I’ve made three very rich episodes and i think, that’s a good moment for a break. I’m pretty sure atm that i will keep on working with those characters in the future. Luisa B. is my most relevant work so far and Luisa3D.com also has some good potential. Let’s see.

Personally, i will find a way to stay connected and to keep my old content available. This site mxm-studios.com will also stay online as long as it makes sense. I will continue to post news and announcements here.

Most important: My presence on patreon.com will also stay active! Of course, i need to change its identity as well. I will inform my patron(s) about any changes properly.

About twitter and other social media accounts: I love twitter, but i think i should restart a new account. Or post serious stuff for a while, i don’t know. The same uncertainty also counts for my other websites. I haven’t yet decided what exactly will happen to them and how.

Please, dear people, i hope you understand what’s going on and can accept my decision to close everything in and around MXM. I believe that the time has come to start something different. Although i don’t have much energy at the moment i see it as a chance to come up with something even bigger and better! Isn’t that exciting?

So far, thanks for reading all this. Thank you for your support. We will stay connected, you will know where you can find me. Take care of yourself and have a great time! Keep on supporting 3Dx.

See you soon, Cheers!

MaXsiM

PS: Remember i will keep on posting news here on mxm-studios.com to guarantee a “soft” move. I will announce soon what happens to my social media accounts. Some will be deleted, some will not.

Sexxi New Year!

It’s 2017, can you imagine that?

Everybody says that ’16 was a bad year. And when they say so, they’re mainly referring to the many celebrities that passed away. It’s sad, yes…

But what about the countless wars (people really do think the middle-age was a brutal time), what about the billions of starving people (it doesn’t get better, does it?), the ongoing monitoring of whole nations, heavy censorship that comes sneaking under cover the “fight against terror”, hip companies looting poor countries to deliver our gadgets (for a reasonable price, haha!), corrupt politicians support their business mates, and corrupt business people somehow manage to become President of the US.

I don’t believe that 2017 will bring better news. My feeling is more like “Let’s get going and see what happens”. And i will continue trying to entertain you with naughty stories that will hopefully help you to forget about the trouble and worries for a while :)

Last year i almost finished all planned projects. 1 Luisa B. episode (i was hoping to complete 2), finally a new SEXXI issue, many blog posts and quite a few nice updates for patreon. Well, my patreon campaign doesn’t run too promising, to be honest. But i won’t give up. I need to find a way to balance my production costs in a long term. Anyway…

There will be a very nice update on Patreon.com this week! Get ready :)

Now to the most urging questions! What can you expect from MXM in ’17?

I’ve learned to better set the goals super low. I’m not a 3Dx-Factory, and my art really takes time to create. I’m also getting older and as far as i can’t generate a decent income with my 3Dx, i won’t force myself into too much stress.

One more Luisa B. episode and maybe 2 SEXXI issues. I will also focus on producing content for patreon, i got some neat ideas. And i have more things in mind but won’t do the mistake to tell you about it ;)

What i also can say, that i will step more into niches in the future. More about that in a later post.

So far, have a great year 2017 everybody! Stay calm, think twice, be supportive and take care of yourself.

Thank you very much for your support, i really appreciate it.

Cheers :)

St. Nicholas Update and Patreon

Today i’ve updated Luisa3D.com with the first real 3Dx animations that i’ve ever created. There’s also a bit of LB4 progress going on.

But the main thing i want to write about is Patreon and my plans with it.

I finally seem to have a better vision on how i want to release my creations in the future. To say it shortly, i will concentrate on Luisa B. and Patreon in 2017.

Most important thing first: I will continue to release free content! I promised you that Luisa B. will be for free forever – and now i can’t find a way out of this mess :D

On the other side, there’s patreon. I believe it’s a cool way to show some support to your favorite artists. And it’s so fucking cheap! But well, i understand that it isn’t that easy. I understand that i need to add exclusive content to patreon on a regular base. ATM, i’m very grateful about that one only patron i got – thank you very much! I don’t give up on hoping that we will become a strong nude pixel army at one day in the future.

I know that fans of Luisa B. will love the Bonus Content i’ve already uploaded to my patreon blog, but what can i do? I only can talk about it, i can’t force anybody to join patreon and support me with a few bucks.

Enough of being a wimp! In 2017 i will focus on my flagship Luisa B. and also on Patreon. While Luisa’s main story will be free, as well as various related stuff, bonuses will appear on Patreon.com only – with teasers posted on my other sites and social media. 

I will also use Patreon to release some of my ‘special’ ideas. Hyen Yong and her big cock, and the SEXXI magazine are a part of it. But that isn’t all. I got dirty things on my mind. Very dirty things.

What happens to the other sites?

I must realize and accept that i don’t have the time to fill all of the sites with original content. It doesn’t work. I haven’t decided what to do with clublena.com and sexxiporn.com yet. But hey, domains are still paid, there’s no need to hurry.

Ok, long confusing post so far. I’m just trying to sort some thoughts. Thanks for reading, and thanks for your support. I appreciate it.

 

A tumblr checklist to avoid the worst

This is a reminder that you should not post your precious original content only and foremost on tumblr or any other free platform. I’ve chosen tumblr.com as an example here, because of my experiences with it.

The 3Dx community loves tumblr. Every day new 3Dx accounts appear on the scene, reposters as well as creators. The reasons are simple, tumblr is free, looks cool, is easy to handle and there’s a huge community. It feels great to receive likes and reposts quickly.

I agree, expecially for beginners it’s cool to start simple and check out how the people react to the content…

But after all – and there’s no doubt about it – your content always belongs on your own personal homepage! The reason is: Censorship and sudden account termination.
