Scott Manley plays The Last Federation

Looks like TLF has another pretty high profile fan.  Scott Manley, the top Kerbal Space Program youtuber, has released a video about The Last Federation.  Check it out here.

Pretty popular guy. Nice that he's giving this game more attention, it deserves it.

I just bought the game after watching this video. However, in the video scott has some sort of line showing the movement path the ship is going to take. How can I turn that on? It seems like it should be on by default, and I cant find any option anywhere to turn it on.

Welcome to the forums!  In terms of the line not showing up... that's very strange.  If you are in movement mode and move your cursor, it should automatically appear.

Yea, It shows up now. I restarted the game, and after that it appeared. Kinda odd.

Wow, that is definitely odd -- I've not heard of that one before.  What OS are you on?

Scott Manley has released a new Let's Play with TLF 2.0 and Betrayed Hope.

He seems to like it quite a bit.

It can be seen here.

Wow.  That's pretty darn neat.  I'd been wondering if some videos of this were going to pop up, didn't expect one from a more popular channel though (since those tend to do alot of mainstream stuffs).

And this is still pretty surreal to me. 


Gotta be even more interesting for you guys though.  Seeing what kinds of strategies and such different players use and dont use for the complicated solar map stuffs.  I'd actually been looking for LPs for exactly that reason (for strategy games in general, really), because I find it very interesting to see tactics in this genre used by other players in strategic games and compare them to my own.

....not to mention the usual laughing at any hilarious fail moments that may occur.  Not that I dont have plenty myself in games like these.  "Okay, the Thoraxians seem to be under control, so now I'll- OMG THE ANDORS JUST BLINKED OUT OF EXISTENCE".  Like that :p

Sadly I've gotten a bit used to it over the last 5 years, but I still have moments where the sheer surreality of it all hits me.  I really miss having that feeling more, but I guess you get used to anything.

I love people doing videos, but honestly my favorite thing of all is you guys on the forums coming in and sharing what you're up to in the games, and the back-and-forth that results.  I'd feel like I've lost an arm or worse trying to make games without this community.  Not that everyone here needs to stay out of guilt or something (people have lives too, and I understand that!), but the collective and the individuals are something that I do cherish.  There are some old forum names that I see that make me kind of sad because I remember the folks and miss them, but they've moved on.  Which is okay though, because there are all these newer names that have become really familiar over the last years, months, and weeks.  At first it always scared me when someone disappeared from the community, like things were going to fall down after that point, but awesome new people have always kept showing up.  And sometimes old faces return, too.

Anyway, it's that sense of community and working toward a common goal (a better game) that I really love the most.  Reviewers and LPers come and go for the most part, and seeing what they do is 100% entertaining.  But they aren't usually the ones who sink in a hundred hours or more, etc.  I honestly value all of it a great deal, even if I do take it for granted more than I should.

Wow that got surprisingly heavy. ;)

STILL HERE! Albeit a fair bit more lurky than I used to be. Real life has kinda caught up with me and other games are keeping me busy. But Arcen is kinda like a second home. Will probably never leave it.


That said: I discovered Scott Manley just a week ago because of him playing Xenonauts. He's actually quite funny. I do enjoy his content and I can see why he's popular. Compared to say...Smosh and PewDiePie. I cannot fathom WHY they have such following.

Smosh are the one that made a gaming channel because it was popular, or something. Or that might be some other unfathomably popular youtube-person, I don't really keep track of them.
