Many many months ago, I started a server called the Let's Craft server. I went by XDaWNeDX on Youtube and here, but after a friend of mine passed, I stopped playing on the server, then when I lost my house a month later from a flood, I completely abandoned the server - shutting it down.
In the time I was living in a hotel I learned a few things about myself.
1. I hate living in hotels.
2. I want a new start with Youtube.
3. I really enjoy Runescape... again.
So I started a new channel on Youtube - IAm0x64 and I upload constant Runescape/Minecraft videos to that channel.
I also wrote the popular Bob's Story - A Minecraft Fan Fiction here on the Minecraftforums. Check my sig if you want to read that story.
I was involved in a few other semi-large projects on these forums, or in the Minecraft community in general - though I stopped being involved in them for the same reason I stopped the server.
While it looks like I abandon my projects, or take excessively long breaks from them, Bob's Story is a difficult project that requires a lot of creativity and inspiration, and my old Let's Play was ended due to personal reasons. I can promise you that if you sub to me, or even just check me out now and then, you will constantly see new content for as long as I have content.
What do I do?
Having had a Let's Play before, I know how bleak it can be without any viewer interaction. So at the moment, I play through some Adventure maps, puzzle maps and various other maps that I would enjoy.
I'll also be starting a Hardcore series soon, and see how long I last in that. Though, when I reach a good amount of comments on my videos, I'll be making a Let's Play. I just don't want to start that until I've got a good viewer base that'll be giving me good ideas - that's the point of a LET'S play, after all.
Oh, I also enjoy making redstone minigames. *cough*
Q: What's your play style? Do you explore or sit tight?
Hmm, well, I started out in Minecraft by watching Coestar, and I really enjoy watching Etho's videos. So I suppose my play style would be a mix of the two. I quite enjoy redstone, and not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'm pretty good with it. So my play style would probably be more on the technical side, but I can't go too long before needing to explore my world a bit - check out all the neat mountains and stuff.
Q: When do you upload videos
A: Every night that I HAVE content, I upload a video. Saturday's I upload a Runescape progress video, and another video if I have more content.
Q: What do you record/edit with
I use Fraps to record, and I use Camtasia Studio 7 to edit. Occasionally I use After Effects to get a special effect or the like - though not often, I'm not really the best with After Effects.
Q: Why do you upload to Youtube?
I upload videos to Youtube because I enjoy doing it. I currently don't monetize my videos - though I do intend to. It'll give me more motivation and reason to record and upload videos, as well as a way to justify doing it.
Q: I didn't read the whole thread. What's your yt channel?
