Can You Play/Stream X
The videos and streams I do are based on an ongoing schedule. You can make a suggestion on my Discord in the general-forum (https://discord.gg/wQpCbYapsA) posting with a good descriptive title and the "Idea" tag. This allows me to effectively collect ideas together.

How Do I Play OpenTTD Multiplayer
Why do I have to pay for some things?
I am a content creator. My core focus is to create content which people can enjoy. All the main content which I put out is available for free. Running a content creation business has a lot of costs involved (web hosting, stream services, equipment etc). This is where my Viewer+ program comes in. People who sign up support me and help to cover all these costs and provide a small amount of compensation for my time and effort. As a thank you to these people (who quite frankly keep the free content coming for everyone) I provide a few benefits including some game servers. Short story, you don't have to pay to enjoy my content but if you do decide to support me then you get some bonuses in return.
Why do you use UTC?
The first thing you need to know (if you don't already) is that UTC is not a time zone like all the others, it's a time standard. As my content is enjoyed across the world I choose to use UTC for most annocments, removing time zones. I come from a computing background, it's common in computing to use the UTC standard to remove all need to worry about converting time zones. So I have chosen to adopt this constant. I would not be surprised if we see more of this in other places in the future.
Can you play a game with me/us?
Unfortunately, between work and family life, I do not have the time to be able to game with people. I do however put on events where viewers can take part in multiplayer games. These are either public games when doing large/charity events or Viewer games. Viewers games are events where viewers get the opportunity to play in Hellish multiplayer games. When either of these are scheduled they are announced on social media and on Discord.
What Minecraft mods do you use?
On the Viewer+ Server we have: afk display, anti enderman grief, armor statues, more mob heads and player head drops.
On my client I have... Mods: fabric(sodium, replaymod, shulkerboxtooltip, XaerosWorldMap, Xaeros_Minimap, Bobby), Resource packs: Classic Faithful 64x, Vanilla Tweaks(StickyPistonSides, DirectionalHoppers, CleanRedstoneDust, BetterObservers, DirectionalDispensersDroppers, DarkUI), + dependencies.
Why do you develop your own tools rather that using existing ones?
There are 4 main reasons to this...
• Cost. Sometimes the tools cost or features are behind a paywall.
• Integration. If I use my own tools I can much more closely integrate it with the things I want to. For example Viewer+ and the points system.
• 3rd parties. Having my own tools means not having to reply on 3rd parties. They can change the service, start charging for it or even just stop providing something all together.
• Features. Having my own tools means I get to decide what features it has and how it works.
