If anyone is interested, the Administration of Estates Act 1935 (I think, it's been a few weeks since I did the assignment :P ) stated that a person may not inherit from someone that they themselves have killed :P [IAD]

I think the main reason the marauders out number the other factions is because you have more freedom story wise. I mean you can be sided with the GI one day, with Aurelia the next and then betray them both and blow up a space station! Not that I'm going to do that of course...

Don't forget 'Murica has different levels of butchering. I mean folks here in "Dixieland" seem to run it through a meat grinder! For example we pronounce picture and pitcher the same way. (And Don't get me started on "Y'all'd" and "Wouldn't'd!") Sometimes I can't tell what my own siblings are saying! But that's probably due to my lack of southern accent. :P

Okay I just had to share this and it didn't fit on the TV and Film Inspiration thread but I've been playing an old point and click cyberpunk PC game called "Beneath a Steel Sky" and so far it is hilariously similar to stories on the insurgency! For instance the main character Robert Foster (Ironically the same last name as R. K. Blast's Character Tank/Frank) is an orphan who spent most of his life in a wasteland Australia (Like Dustin Vorn from Werewolff's series) and Joey his Robot partner that he built from scrap. (like Tank and Tracks.) And let me tell you now Joey is bricking hilarious! His main game feature is his AI can be plugged into other robot shells and he can control them. And He has quite a mouth on him and makes his opinion of the shell known. For instance when he gets a shell with a welding torch he pretends to be a dalek and starts screaming EX-TERM-NATE! I won't spoil anything else but it's a fun game with good humor, an awesome cyberpunk art style that has a similar atmosphere to the Insurgency. I highly recommend it. You can download it for free online if you want to give it a play.

For instance the main character Robert Foster (Ironically the same last name as R. K. Blast's Character Tank/Frank) is an orphan who spent most of his life in a wasteland Australia (Like Dustin Vorn from Werewolff's series) and Joey his Robot partner that he built from scrap. (like Tank and Tracks.) And let me tell you now Joey is bricking hilarious! His main game feature is his AI can be plugged into other robot shells and he can control them. And He has quite a mouth on him and makes his opinion of the shell known. For instance when he gets a shell with a welding torch he pretends to be a dalek and starts screaming EX-TERM-NATE! I won't spoil anything else but it's a fun game with good humor, an awesome cyberpunk art style that has a similar atmosphere to the Insurgency. I highly recommend it. You can download it for free online if you want to give it a play.

Oh wow! Haha! Lots of similarities!

Wow. This is a tough one. Is all of the above an option? Ha ha. Actually It'd be a three-way tie between the story writing, character building and set making. Mainly because in my opinion it's a balance of those three things that make a story great.

I don't know why But I find that fact hilarious due to the fact of imagining what the reactions of southern Alabama folk would be if the sky turned red right in the middle of singing "I saw the light" Or in a Alabama football game. That'd bring a whole new meaning to term "Crimson Tide!" :P

Ironically that's the opposite of the way I write. I make the sets and take the pictures as I come up with the story and then upload the pics to Mocpages, then copy the HTML into a document and then write the story to go with the pics. But that's just what works best for me. :P

I have the general story idea in my head, I then take the pictures, upload them to Mocpages twice,(So that I can see the pictures, to keep track of where I am in my writing), then I write in my dialogue ideas from earlier along with whatever I come up with after taking the pictures.

I plan out all my stories ahead of time, working out major plot points, character introductions and arcs and points I want to include. Then I plan out what the scene will be and write the episode, usually on my iPad, and take the pictures , also on the iPad. Afterwards, I upload it through the simple uploader and there you have it (which explains why my pictures are always shocking) :D

I guess if we're all doing it I'll say how I write.

Basically, once I figure out a story I build the sets and take pictures as I go along.

After all the pictures are edited as necessary I open up a google docs and start writing, kind of writing around the pictures.

Then I upload with the simple uploader and add the pictures in one at a time. (Yes, it is VERY tedious. But it works.)

Just thought I'd make a quick post confirming something. A while ago I had a chat with Marley and he was surprised to know how Uek was pronounced. Just to clear it up (for anyone out there who was confused) Uek is pronounced You-Ek. Thanks.

Yeah, that sure was an odd realization. :D Makes me wonder how many other names I'm mispronouncing. :P

Haha! IAD and I have joked about this quite a few times! It's good to know the official answer!

I'm alive! And should have a new episode coming either today or tomorrow! Sorry it's taken so long, I've been at Uni and, while I had all my Lego, it wasn't the easiest to get to, so MOCing wasn't particularly feasible. But I'm back now, and plan to feverishly spend all summer putting plastic bricks together! [IAD]

Wow. Given how much I enjoy Griffin's series that's a huge deal to me.

Okay. Ya know how a lot of times mistakes end up becoming better than what you originally intended? My last episode is a really good example. I had intended for my characters to be attacked by a Fuyorian Slot Worm (Which is meant to be a larger distant cousin to R. K. Blast's Iaprian Sand Worm) and then escape and return to hunt down it's nest to sell it's eggs on the black-market. But then in the middle of the escape scene I dropped my ship and it shattered into pieces and I couldn't get the right wing to look right since I lost a main piece of it. So the next best thing was have the worm attack the ship and show it in a repair shop and go the usual bounty hunter route. Which turned out much better and possibly my best episode yet. And again thanks to Phillip Pip9766 for proofreading it and helping me make sure it didn't have any plot holes...

Well. Thanks to my latest Lego clearance find I can now make a decently accurate version of Blast's main character Tank. I found hurricane heist for $20 at Walmart. Which is a set I highly recommend purely for parts and the Psyclone minifigure. Lots of great bits I can use in my insurgency builds....

Do we've discussed what everybody's favourite part of making an episode is, (building, writing, photographing etc.) so now what is everybody's LEAST favourite part?

Mine has to be dismantling sets afterwards. It's boring and time consuming. Haha!

Mine is photography. Sometimes the camera I use takes RAW instead of JPG and I don't realize it until I put it on my computer. So I end up taking around an hour and 45 minutes for what would take 30-40 minutes. But even though I screw it up I'm [mostly] always patient and I do as good on the second batch as I did on the first.

Huh. I'm honestly amazed by how many builders I've heard over the years say their least favorite thing is taking the pictures. It's as fun as building for me. :P

I like taking the pictures but it's really hard for them to come out with good lighting and the aperture stuff... I don't understand why, the iPhone 7 plus I use is supposed to have a good camera...

Do you have it set to manual? (I'm not even sure if the latest iPhone has manual) Because manual allows you to adjust the lighting and everything yourself, which can make it hard to get good pictures if you don't know how to use it. Auto would probably be the best setting, it AUTOmatically sets the lighting and such.

For me, it's probably taking the pictures, as my lighting set-up is very very basic, and my camera isn't very mobile (it's an iPad). That's my next investment though, getting a new camera. Any recommendations guys?

There are very few settings on it. It just doesn't pick up stuff like color that well... Maybe I should physically change the lighting with lamps or something. But idk artificial light and natural light both look weird. Oh well

Depends how much you're looking to spend. I have a Nikon which cost me around 70. But it depends what you're after really.

I use a Sony DSC-HX60. Like RK's, it's good and does the job solidly, but isn't anything special. As far as I remember though, it is a fair bit more compact than his. [IAD]

I use a 2013 iPad mini for all my photos, which does the job ok, but it's quite difficult to manipulate when taking photos.
