  1. The main topic of the video is Wrong Way Corrigan himself, so I was attempting to just offer enough information about it to help tell the story. I'm essentially assuming that the audience isn't completely in the dark, but they don't know this specific story, so I wanted to tell it.
  2. I do think that the humor can come out even more just based on how I inflect it, naturally there's a limit to just putting words down and then reading them again. I'm gonna do some tests later on to see if it'll work the way I hoped it would. Thanks!
  3. So it's like almost 2:30 in the morning where I live, and I was trying to fall asleep but I had one of those "eureka" moments so I literally just wrote a new version of the script down. I think it's way funnier, and it's completely different and more conversational than the first one. Let me know what you guys think. I essentially pictured myself literally sitting down in front of a microphone and repeating what I knew about the story from memory, and offering my thoughts on what the story is like. It's basically like I sat for a few minutes talking to somebody about it and just wrote it down. So it's extremely conversational, but I think it would be a unique style of narration to use, particularly with some slightly-humorous but still historical background footage to use too. Keep in mind that I wrote this in like fifteen minutes after two in the morning, so if there's typos, please forgive it.
  4. Overall, it's gonna be pretty generic stock footage, some vintage footage of barnstorming, and then of course pictures of the relevant people/planes, and maybe even a map or two depending on how ambitious I get. And the style you describe is indeed interesting, because I know even before doing this that a style akin to reading out of a textbook is never gonna sell. I can attempt to produce some more conversational-ish versions tomorrow.
  5. So I'm gearing up to start producing YouTube videos, and I have a rough script idea that will be just challenging enough to give me good practice to see what else I can come up with. It's a solid historical piece, I've done some research on it, and it's an interesting story. My only problem is that I don't know if the script itself is interesting enough. To me, it seems a little too factual/documentary-ish for a quick history lesson. I had the idea of coming to the Forum itself to see if any writers out there would help critique my script to make sure that what I'm producing is quality. If people are interested, great, I'll leave the script here to see suggestions. If not, then oh well, I'll get somebody else to help. Thanks if you're willing!
  6. It seems pretty clear to me, at least, that what SQUAD has defined is pretty clear. Heck, I'm a moderator and I'm out of luck because I bought the game after the date, but in 2013. It's not really that big of a deal.
  7. Topic is in the title. I've been playing more of this game recently, and in fact I'm going to start making gaming videos with this game, nailing down techniques before I move to other games.
  8. Howdy, everybody! Once again, it's time to show of what our community members have deemed to be the best the Kerbal Space Program forum has to offer. If you'd like to see last month's Threads of the Month, you can find it here. If you think that we've missed any important threads that should be recognized, don't hesitate to contact one of the site moderators and we can put them in the running for TOTM. I'd like to give special thanks to @diomedea, @Red Iron Crown, @Dman979, and @Vanamonde for helping pick this month's winners! Here is this month's very special TOTM badge: And now on to our winners this month! First off, we have a thread coming all the way from the Add-On Releases subforum. Have you ever wanted to see the exact locations your brave Kerbals will plummet haplessly into the ground float gently to the ground, safe and sound? Well, now you can, thanks to this lovely mod by @DennyTX! Our next thread comes from the Gameplay Questions & Tutorials subforum, interestingly enough. If math and general nerdy awesomeness is your thing (and come on, you play Kerbal Space Program. Of course it is), then you should definitely check out this thread, which has high quantities of awesome, nerdy, AND math. Congratulations, @Cunjo Carl! Next up, we set our Nostalgia cannons to "kill." Do you remember your very first post on these forums? If you do, post it in this awesome thread by @RA3236, and check out everybody else's as well! Have you ever wanted to build your own freaking telescope? Well, for some reason, @_Augustus_ was just so compelled, and is currently working on one. Way to go, bro, your kludginess is an example to us all. For our final thread this month, we ask two age-old questions: Do you love Kerbal Space Program? Well, we hope you do, and you should if you don't. But... Do you like Star Wars as well? If the answer to both questions was rightfully yes, then report down to @Jett_Quasar's thread immediately so you can check out his awesome STOCK Star Wars builds! And with that, we come to the end of yet another installment in Threads Of The Month. Be sure to let a moderator know of any thread you think is worthy of the title, and congratulations again to all our winners! It's always amazing to see what you guys come up with. It's what makes this forum such a special place for me personally, and many of the rest of us as well, I'm sure. Happy posting!
  9. Welcome aboard! Nice to see a Mercury astronaut join us. No way that it could be somebody else from the internet just taking a picture off of the internet and using the name and all.
  10. Boo. How about @WinkAllKerb''?
  11. To change your title, click "Edit Profile" up in the top right corner of your own profile page, and it should be the very first option. The dots represent post count, but off the top of my head I can't remember how many posts correspond to dots or whatever. Edit: I think I was ninja'd twice. One from two hours ago. Probably one of my finest moments on these forums...
  12. @Mad Rocket Scientist got it pretty well. Links to products, services, and other websites without much in the way of extra words are dead giveaways. Sometimes they have names that are unusual for most users, like one or two letters repeated. Other times it will be completely gibberish, which can be pretty amusing.
  13. Thread closed at OP's request.
  14. My personal favorite snack: Honestly, if not the kind of snacks I eat, then for some reason I pictured Kerbals as having boxes and boxes of some sort of granola bar-esque nutrition bar as the default "snack." In my mind's eye, the wrapper is green. That's about all I can offer.
