I finally updated this thread with a new video. I still haven't much time to record the kitten training video yet. I'd say that this one was a quicker video, but I don't know if I should because everything was actually recorded about a month ago. I just now got the time to edit it together. With the semester ending soon, I should be able to upload more frequently.
Falcon Development, would you mind stickying this thread? This way, I don't have to keep bumping it just to keep up with it. Also, I feel like it isn't really helping anybody if it's several pages back. I'd appreciate it.

I'm a little late, but I still wanted to post this.
Happy birthday to the Guide to Romance video! Out of all the other tutorials/guides I have done for Cattails, this is probably my favorite because of what had to be done to create it.
On February 13th, 2018 (in the evening), I came up with the idea to get this video out on Valentine's Day. It seemed like it was impossible it first because it was the evening before the holiday, and I had to start from scratch. Somehow I had to befriend, date, marry, and get kittens with a marriageable cat overnight. Along with that, I also had to record all the scenes that went in it, and I had to edit it all together, render the video, and put it up on YouTube. Somehow, I had to do all of that in time to get it up before Valentine's Day was over with.
From the second the idea came, I knew that it was going to take an all nighter. There was no way around it. Luckily, my classes for the 14th were cancelled, and staying up all night is/was a piece of cake, with or without trying. So that's what I did.
I started on a fresh save file on February 13th, at roughly 9PM. A lot of the gameplay itself is a bit fuzzy, but I remember choosing Pebble as my mate, and I remember catching a lot of rare stuff. I caught like four bluejays, three cardinals, a catfish, and a black firefly in that one gaming session. I might have been off with the numbers, but it was something crazy like that.
I finished everything I needed to record, everything from befriending to when the kittens were born, by 10am the morning of Valentine's Day. So, I played Cattails all night and well into the morning, from 9pm-10am. That's over 12 hours of gameplay straight, with no breaks aside from maybe a couple of minutes!
I was tired from the long night, so I slept for a few hours. Then, after I woke up, I edited the video, rendered it, and uploaded it to YouTube. It was late in the evening by the time I got it up, but I still managed to get it out before Valentine's Day was over.
So, in short, it was a long night and involved a single 12+ hour gaming session but I got it on YouTube on Valentine's Day just like I wanted.
Obviously, it made very it memorable. I said it was worth it a year ago, and I still say that now. I'd do it all again if the opportunity was provided.
(I went back in time on the "I Ban You Because" thread because I talked about all of this as it was happening. It guided a lot of what I just said here. Everything I talked about can be found between pages 180 - 187
