Greetings MechWarriors and thank you for visiting my Patreon page! This is Ken Takacs, otherwise known as PLEXI, and I am the creator of the All Systems Nominal YouTube Cartoons.

My Goals:

    Although animation and BattleTech are two of my most favorite passions; these cartoon can be time consuming, and unfortunately suffer due to me needing to juggle my other responsibilities.  My primary goal with this effort is to create more time for me to dedicate to working on All Systems Nominal, so that I can continue providing silly mech antics for you to enjoy!  That means more consistency between episode releases!

    There is such a wealth of content within the BattleTech franchise that the medium of animation has an amazing opportunity to excel with.  Additionally, I would like to pursue the continued evolution of these cartoons towards an actual BattleTech animated series or perhaps short film. Persistence is key! 

Patreon and how you can help:

    Patreon is a service that allows you to become a direct supporter of the content that you enjoy. Similar to an online tip-jar! By making an account with Patreon it allows you to discover and support various content creators through an either monthly or per video donation system.  You can support me and All Systems Nominal with a per episode donation, of your liking, by becoming one of my patrons.  There is also an associated award with each of the various donation amounts to try and help give back to my contributors (the specifics of each reward are listed below). If you change your mind later, you can also cancel at any time.

Goals
$344 of $400 per Episode
A) Saving for a variation of a Wacom Cintiq drawing tablet. 
  • Greatly improves my digital drawing workflow and will make more complicated animations possible. 
B) Various Hardware upgrades (GPU / RAM / CPU+Mobo)
  • More powerful rendering capabilities and less waiting.
  • Actually being able to play and even stream MWO with greater than 20 FPS. 
C) Various Software upgrades ( Video Editors / 3D tools)
  • Specifically saving for allegorithmic's Substance tool sets. 

If we can reach this goal together I will begin regularly live-streaming drawing/animating sessions as well as MWO or previous Battletech video games. In addition there will be a substantial increase in animation quality and use of 3D rendering techniques for more dynamic videos.
