    I was thinking that you should keep the EEN News format that you normally. You could start by denouncing the war in Aloha lands saying that it is such a tragedy and that since we have never seen war, we are the only true light in this dark world. Then you could have then have some breaking news. This could be introduced by having the Intro of "Mars", from "The Planets" saying that we have received some vital news that we need to share to the world. Then you can say that this following presentation had been approved for public consumption by "The Leader". Then you can start the presentation of "All Loco's Base are belong to us.

    I don't know that you wil have the time to do this, but it might be good to watch.

    That's a great idea CH, but the standard EEN video takes me somewhere between a week and 2 weeks to prepare. I know they don't look like it! :lol: - but there's a surprising amount of prep work on those… and I just don't have the time in my schedule right now. As it was, I stayed up WAY too late to get the original draft of this video done.

    I'm now working on version 2, and should have it ready to go later this afternoon.
    :salute:

    I would slow down the "all your base" slides. Otherwise looks good.

    :) It's a balancing act. These are actually quite a bit slower than the original "all your base" slides. Too slow, and it gets boring. Too fast, and too many people can't read them. I think I've got the balance about right (which means a few people will think it's too fast)… but if everyone here thinks it's too fast, I might get time later to go back and edit… but that would mean adding more time to the music… so it might be a while before I get the time.

    That's just Perfect!

    Thanks for putting this together - I really wish I could have helped more, but you seemed to have a little more time on your hands than me ;)

    I really can't wait to read Loco's forum about this after the game is over :D

    My suggestion, now that I know that EEN is not possible, that to have every single Loco City's name show up on the all your base sign, So far I can only see two from memory, B&O and Mycenia. We really should have every single city shown in the video, since all Loco's base belong to us. Also I like the original destruction of Mycenian defences that Dave gave, rather than have the last bit about the bomb.

    I love it. A very classy way to declare war if I have ever seen one.

    Thanks Kylearan, twistlok & Peter! Glad you liked it.
    @Memphus and C_H – I’m afraid I’ve had a very busy and night and looks like I will for the next couple nights again. Unfortunately, it’s a bit more work than you might think to just make those “simple” changes you suggest. And I’ve already stayed up way too late once to get this done. Sorry there wasn’t more time for input, but this was a real rush job – and I can’t just keep sacrificing sleep. :sleep:

    Well, after all that hurry – Innovia finally has the save! If they play it while I'm still around, I'll post this notice in the UN.
    If it happens on European or Australian time – any Epsilonian should feel free to post our announcement in the EEN news thread in the UN.

    Can't wait to see the reactions of people! :D
