Thumbnail Hunting™ with nativetojapan

So, as we all know, we’re in the midst of the 21.1 Open Beta which means the actual release is hot on it’s heels. As per usual I joined the beta, reported and reproduced whatever bugs I could find, then started working on my cinematic trailer, as per usual.

Like all videos, there needs to be a thumbnail. My other videos’ thumbnails are, in retrospect, kinda bland with the only components being text and gradients galore. So, for this one, I decided to take the new ANA 777-300ER out to do some thumbnail hunting™.

Steps to thumbnail hunting™:

  • Take an aircraft
  • Fly around
  • Go back to the replay file and try to get a (decent) screenshot

Easy enough.

Here’s the original screenshot:

And here’s the thumbnail I created from aforementioned screenshot:

Did I forget to warn you I pulled an XboxAhoy with the font?

Just kidding, great photo. I actually really like the format of text (maybe switch the blue to orange tho, a little too much “USA” for me lol)


Thanks and thanks :)

I can mess around with the gradient and send you a revised version in [redacted] if you’d like.
