    All Loco's Base Are Belong to Us
    (war declaration thread)

    Original Script:
    Spoiler :
    In A.D. 2101
    War was beginning.
    Captain: What happen ?
    Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.
    Operator: We get signal.
    Captain: What !
    Operator: Main screen turn on.
    Captain: It's You !!
    Cats: How are you gentlemen !!
    Cats: All your base are belong to us.
    Cats: You are on the way to destruction.
    Captain: What you say !!
    Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time.
    Cats: HA HA HA HA ....
    following text not in audio:
    Captain: Take off every 'zig' !!
    Captain: You know what you doing.
    Captain: Move 'zig'.
    Captain: For great justice.



    Working Script:
    In A.D. 1401
    War was beginning.
    Joe Harker: What happen ?
    jeejeep: Somebody set up us the bomb.
    Koondrad: We get signal.
    Joe Harker: What !
    Koondrad: Main screen turn on.
    Joe Harker: It's You !!
    The Leader: How are you gentlemen !!
    The Leader: All your base are belong to us.
    The Leader: You are on the way to destruction.
    Joe Harker: What you say !!
    The Leader: You have no chance to survive make your time.
    The Leader: HA HA HA HA ....
    … start random images…
    "all your base, all your base are belong to us, all your base…"

    Sample Images:




    I've got the original audio by the Laziest Men on Mars :D


    Note: The plan at this point is to basically make it a slideshow… with just minimal animation. Some zooms and fades, but probably not much flashing. I've got the audio file… but for the sake of time, I don't think I'll probably get to edit the audio… so only the text on screen will change.

    Please post any more ideas and suggestions here!
    Also, if you'd like to contribute artwork, please do!! I'll try to keep a log here of work as I get it done so we don't duplicate efforts.

    Work is nearly done on "The Leader"'s titles...



    Probably the best way for people to help is to make random "all your base" slides for me... the words don't always need to be changed, esp if we can at least put some kind of loco/Civ4 spin on the images.

    Update: All the Leader's shots are done, as well as Joe Harkers. Now I just need to work on jeejeep and Koondrad, and we'll be done with the initial images!

    [party]

    It's a little slow going, as I don't have the font used in the images, so I have to re-create each letter by copying the original text.

    This is looking GREAT!

    I propose that we when we get the save, we send Loco a link to the 'announcement' privately, through our usual diplomatic channels. Then once we've played the save, we can publicly post a link, along with our "GPS" post in the turntracker. Thoughts?

    Well, Innovia is going to discover our invasion force when they play their turn. Fortunately Loco can't do anything about it, but it won't be much of a surprise by the time we play our turn.

    I'm just worried we won't have the video done in time. ;)

    I working as fast as I can! :lol:

    I found a gif of the video, and I'm pulling images from that. I can attach it here, if you want it?

    Thanks Peter! :) - I think it's going to be hilarious.

    And I agree with Dave... we should probably just post this in the UN before all the shock wears off... but we can certainly send a link to the thread in the UN along with the save to LOCO... make sure they don't miss it! :D

    Dave that is great and General W great work too.

    Actually Innovia won't be able to see our forces next turn, unless they end the turn with thier Caravel in our land...Otherwise sicne they only have 3 moves they will burn the last move and do the jump "in/out" on the following turn. Too bad Loco will already be at war that turn....

    Here are some interesting source images I've been collecting. Unfortunately mac's don't come with an easy photomanipulator :mad:

    I especially like the Boy's Life one, for some reason :)

    All the pictures for the intro are done.
    I’m now just working on some of those flashing/random pics.

    We ought to have this down tomorrow sometime. Any contributions on those random pics are appreciated!

    @Dave – thanks for that screen… I’ve incorporated it in. :)

    @Peter – thanks for those… but I’ve only got limited time (and even more limited ability)… so some of those will be a bit too difficult for me to edit in time. However, that church sign generator site is great! I used it for some images! Thanks!

    It’s done!!! [party]

    I haven’t uploaded it yet, incase any LOCO members have subscribed to my YouTube account.

    But after they play the save, I’ll put it up and post the link here.
    I think you’ll really like it. :D

    The wait is over! – Loco has played!

    Here’s the link:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e186jahDcK0

    I still think we should wait to post this in the UN till we actually get our turn… but I’m going to be off the grid for about 4 hours… so if our turn happens to come that fast, someone else can feel free to post this in the UN (and of course, please send it along with the save to Loco, Mr. President!)

    But I didn’t want to keep you all waiting any longer.

    Thanks for the awesome idea Dave, and thanks to all that contributed ideas and pics!

    My pic didn't turn out that well resized. :(

    Is there any chance you could crop it and zoom in?

    Hey – yeah, YouTube does some funky compression on the videos when I upload them… those were all more readable in the .wmv format.

    I won’t get a chance to edit till later today… but I’ll give it my best!

    @Classical – please feel free to make any suggestions, but I may or may not be able to comply :)
