Part of the plan to finish 2020 on a high note is getting the YouTube channel squared away. We haven’t been very regular when it comes to adding new videos. But, all that is going to change with the new YouTube schedule starting next week.
We’ve had a hell of a time trying to get all the computers and software to play nicely together. We lost audio on one, another upload coming out soon is missing video from a player, and we’re still working on the logistics of everything.
But, we’re dedicated to making something more out of ColoradoPlays in the near future.
What Will the YouTube Schedule Look Like?
Because everyone has some really screwy work schedules, as we all have regular jobs, it’s hard to get everyone in one place. However, we have a working practice that’s been helpful over the last couple of weeks.
And we should be able to maintain a regular upload plan.
EverQuest 2 Continuation
First off, we love playing EverQuest 2. We recently started a campaign where we don’t have access to the guildhall and are starting completely from scratch.
These are 20-minute playthroughs as we work to complete as much of the game as possible. And since we can record a week’s worth of video on a Sunday, we can get them pushed out every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday as part of the YouTube schedule.
We’ll start with a playlist of using good characters and then switch to a playlist of using evil characters.
Once the Reign of Shadows expansion is released, we’ll probably do some videos regarding it. But they will be separate from the continuation uploads.
So, no matter what, there will be a new upload three times per week at the very minimum.
More Twitch Clips
After tinkering around a bit with the Twitch studio, I finally figured out how to download and add clips to the YouTube channel. Though, I might edit them a bit for visual appearance.
At any rate, we’ve had some amazing conversations on Twitch, and I’d love to have some of those up as part of the YouTube schedule. But, those will probably be a bit sporadic. I don’t want to clip just anything.
Minecraft, Subnautica, and Raft
I have playlists for Minecraft, Subnautica, and Raft. I would like to add more to those as we move forward as well. Some of these videos will probably appear on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Then again, I can simply randomize the videos so there is more of a variety. And as our editing process becomes easier, I’m sure there will be far more in due time.
I really want to get back into Hardcore Sky Factory on the Crash Landing map in Minecraft. I’m also working on getting the achievement for surviving 365 days in Raft…on the hard difficulty.
And Everything Else in Between
Phasmophobia, retro gaming, Neverwinter Nights, and more are on the way. I might even be able to clip my son being ejected from the Karuma in GTA V.
Apparently, my car doesn’t like him and will spit Ty out every chance it gets.
Once things are established, we’re also going out and record some of the fun things in Colorado…we are ColoradoPlays after all.
In fact, we have some fantastic ideas for the near future, such as exploring local ghost towns.
Maybe a Few Streaming Tutorials?
The most popular content on this blog are the tutorials for OBS, Streamlabs, and XSplit. Should I also make a few videos to go with the tutorials? I know a lot of people already have them, but the videos may prove beneficial to add to the blog.
That way, you can either read or watch how to do a few things with streaming software.
Are There Plans in the YouTube Schedule for YouTube Live Streams?
At the moment, I’m trying to work out when we can do YouTube live streams. Again, all of us have varied work schedules. Right now, I’m the only one with the flexibility to record and stream at will.
But, games are more fun when you have friends to enjoy them.
So, right now, I’m not sure if YouTube streaming is part of the plan to end 2020. We’ll have to see, though. If anything, I’d like to see what kind of an audience we can draw on the platform.
Right now, a large portion of our Twitch viewers come from this website. And the API key for YouTube stopped working for some reason, so I can’t share the videos on the blog. I’m currently working on the problem to see if I can get it fixed.
Let’s End 2020 in a Spectacular Fashion
That’s where we are to end the year. The blog and YouTube schedule will start on Monday, the 23rd. Though, I do plan on uploading videos throughout the week.
If there is a game in particular you’d like to see us stream, feel free to comment down below or hit us up on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
As long as it isn’t Fortnite, we’re open to all kinds of suggestions.
