[Eaten by the Kraken] Effusus - Chapter Five "Mutationem"

Recommended Posts

 

 

So I had originally wrote effusus out as a series of gameplay videos and cinematics... Until I realized that that would be mulch. I have such little skill there, I basically have negative cinematic ad filming skill. So, I transferred effusus into a new medium of storytelling! So, I pumped these three out in powerpoint yesterday and, after a few rewrites, these are what I came up with. Hope you like it so far, not sure If I want to add another page or not. Either way, :)

Author's note: The whole "Bill forgets the battery" thing, I have two reasons for that. A) I didn't notice bill looking off into the distance until actually editing the comic, and B) The rocket actually ran out of EC while I was gathering the screenshots, so I had too, er, do some "movie magic" (hyperedit) to fix that issue.

You guys might not get a chapter today, I went out and wasn't able to play much. But I promise an extra long chapter to make up for it!

This looks like an awesome new story! I'll definitely be keeping up, and I really can't wait to learn where that launch site is!

Thanks! I ponder at how long this race can continue without one party getting too competitive... :sealed:

Got my internet back (again)!

 

But do expect a significant decrease in chapter frequency though, mod conflicts, crashes and the like.

All right, I'm going to be trying something new, let me know if you guys like it when it comes out. :)

--EDIT--

Worked on it for about three days, then realized that I have no way of compiling things together. Yay. After redoing things, expect a normal chapter. :huh:

Spoiler

Fun Fact! 90% of the content that was supposed to be in this episode was rendered completely unuseable!

Fun Fact Mk2! American Airlines is what you would get if Comcast had an airline.

 

I won't delve into the second "Fun Fact", But the project I was working on was supposed to be a motion comic. Unfortunately, there wasn't any method That I could find to take the powerpoint-animated panels and transfer them to Windows Movie Maker or Sony Vegas. So, for better or for worse, that had to be scrapped. :P

UPDATE: You may or may not get a chapter tomorrow, having some issues with KSP, in the process of troubleshooting.

--EDIT--

Whelp, the save is borked. I suppose it didn't appreciate the sudden jump from sandbox to career. Or perhaps it was the 70+ mods... who knows, either way, it'll take some time.

First: Ohh well that's not good.... Second: You transitioned a save from sandbox to career? How did you do that?

First: I've almost got it back up and running (I plan on keeping it sandbox this time), and Second: I went into the persistence file, changed the game type from Sandbox to Career, booted it up and prayed. Everything was working except for Science, which is what ended up breaking the save game. If I ever try to convert a sandbox to a career again, i'd probably go Sandbox>Science!>Career.

 

I might post a tutorial to better explain what I mean.

Well, I was planning deorbiting him, but what happened was much, much worse! Currently working on the next chapter, maybe tonight but probably tommorow.

Yay, a cookie!

Damn though. That was quite a big blast. Was the nuke (or extremely powerful conventional explosive) from North Kerbin Dynamics?

Yup! At least I think so... it was definitely a nuke, and had quite a large blast, knocked out a few windows in the Gladius VAB!

--EDIT--

And, to add more significance to the detonation, that was the first ever nuclear device on kerbin.
