hey, anyone reading this, I have a question!

Does anyone know if and/or how to speed up or disable the yellow text you get about halfway up the screen?  The one that tells you what speed you're at, or if you're targeting something.... know what I mean?

Reason I ask is I'm trying to get the screenshots for the next part, and I'm kinda overloading my computer with lights and stuff, which is fine. 
What's a pain is waiting for that yellow text to go away, which in some cases seems to be taking forever, so I can get the shot.

So I'm wondering if there is a way to speed it up or disable it.  I looked in the settings, but didn't spot anything that looks right.  And go figure, the text is the only thing that hangs around when you use F2...

Does anyone know how to make it go away faster?

Wish I knew. If I get that text in the shot, I usually just try to cover it with a speech balloon, or if it's sky just put a similarly colored rectangle over it and hope no one notices :)

rats...  seems like I'm taking more time waiting for that than anything else... 

This next part may take a little longer than I originally estimated.  ;.;

There is actually a mod for that.  I saw it several weeks ago while browsing KerbalStuff's new offerings.   Hmmmmm.......

OK, I found it again.  KerbalStuff link:  https://kerbalstuff.com/mod/1060/ScreenMessageHider

And its forum thread:  http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/117753-105-screenmessagehider-hides-screen-messages-when-f2-is-pressed/

Here's a small excerpt from my "book";

A lot had happened during the last few hours. Kerbol had started setting, a VTOL had finished testing, and a mysterious "Air whale" had appeared behind the runway.

No one at the KSC knew what the aircraft was doing there, or how it got there. However, it was decided that the plane was just "too creepy to keep", and that the best course of action was to destroy it. Nervously, Gene ordered Bob and Bill onto the runway to inspect the aircraft and to find a way to dispose of it.

OK, I'm really sorry, but I'm not gonna get the next part done tonight like I first thought.  ;.;

However, the good news is there was one thing I wanted to do that I was a little concerned I might have bitten off more than I could chew.... wrong!  hehehe 
I got thru it beautifully this afternoon, and have lots of fun screenshots to sift thru.
The rest should be fairly straight forward, just a little time consuming.  Definitely tomorrow sometime.

Little preview of things to come:

Boom.... Boom.... boom, boom.... BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   :sticktongue:

Yeah, very disappointed in you Jim. Good thing there was, you know, an actual space launch today or people would be going nuts. /s :) 

SRSY, looking forward to the boom boom. And wondering when, how, and if you're going to be able to follow up on this story which is "far, far from over." :D

OK... I'm gonna share something I was holding out on.
I thought I'd spring this on everyone after part two was finished, but since you ask, now seems an appropriate time.
Everything I've written to this point... everything you all have read....

Was never part of my original idea!!!!!!   bwaaahahahahahaha   :0.0:

All of this so far is just the backstory.... stuff I've been making up to develop the characters and a plot.... building up to the actual story of Emiko Station.
Which, to be honest, hasn't even really started yet!!  :sticktongue:

Yes.....  this is really just the introduction..... 

When I first got the asteroid, I had an idea for a story.  But I needed to introduce and establish characters first.  That's what I've been doing so far.  What I had originally planned has only just now gotten started.  :wink:

Actually, no. It's made of comment posts, and I just stuck it together for this thread.

You should start your own thread, what you wrote wasn't bad.

 cool comic.

Thank you!  Although at this point I'm wondering if it's a comic, or more an illustrated novelette.

Oh man was this a time saver today! 
I just finished getting all the screenshots together to wrap up part two, and it went much faster. 
Still need to sort thru them all and write everything all down, but that part is easy.

That mod is definitely going in my "can't live without it" folder!!!

Thanks again!!!  :cool:
