Billy started playing the creative multiplayer sandbox game “Scrap Mechanic” four months before he launched his official channel on YouTube. He came up with an idea to start the channel after being asked many times how he did certain things during the creation of his machines in the game, and whether he had a YouTube channel or not. On 20 April 2016, he launched his channel under the name ‘ScrapMan’, to archive his creations and share them with other players; he immediately uploaded his first video entitled “Scrap Mechanic Creation Montage”, which earned him a huge number of views.
He continued to create similar content, and his channel subsequently went viral after being spotted by another popular YouTube personality, MrMEOLA, who highly recommended his videos, and invited his subscribers to follow the channel. It encouraged Billy to completely focus on filming new videos for his channel, and pursue his career as a full-time YouTuber.
