Great idea, although living in GMT+1 means I'll have to join and leave early.

Unfortunately, that time is a little bit too late for me. (4:00 AM where I live)

I kinda have the same problem as I mostly play around 8 pm-10:30 pm GMT, going to bed at 11 (on workdays).

Yep, 2 am GMT is a bit late for us Europeans. But on the other hand...

...that would be a good occasion for someone to document it... and maybe make a fan made trailer with actual battles and actual monstrous designs to be shown ! Anyone up for it ?

And yay, Wayward's ship is famous !

How about Thursday, 9:00pm GMT for the Europeans?

We can easily have two, for the major continents.

I just probably won't have a strong presence at the Euro sessions.

This sounds fine for me, at least.

I'm bad with timezones and I tend to sleep early, so...

...could someone please make a video?

I have hypercam, so I'll try and film a round, and post it on youtube; however I doubt my computer will survive nor will I get a good fps, being a 5+ year old laptop and a stock video card ( == no video card)...

Hmm, I've checked out hypercam and downloaded it, will see if I can get it to work for tonight's session. I'm on a two year old laptop that was pretty good when I got it (actually has a graphics card! And one that gets mid teens % ratings on comparison sites instead of single digits! Yay!), but that likes to get hot enough to bore a hole to the center of the Earth. We'll see how it works out.

EDIT: Ok, nope. After some testing on an empty server, I can get a smooth 3-4 frames a second recorded. Alas, we need someone with a beast of a machine to to this right.

Hypercam seems to halve my fps (from 40-47 to 20-24) offline, having set a resolution of 480p; so I can probably expect around 15 fps when recording online games... not great, and the video is heavily compressed (85%), I'll do some more tests to see if I get better results.

Good, I'm not the only one. Hopefully it works out well on your side !

Oh how I wish to spare a lot of time, only the thing is I have some important thing to do first.
I can't imagine with ancient people use blow gun when hunting for foods.
