Video tutorials

Hi guys I've been watching the Feedback Thread for sometime now and there's one thing that keeps popping up. The mod isn't very newbie friendly. I believe I can help solve this problem with a series of basic tutorials posted on my Youtube Channel and linked here on the forums. I'll go from the very basics of the economy and navigating, to using jump points, fighter combat, if the Admins will allow it maybe show off what piloting a various capital ships is like (would require some powers like the Testers have e.g Money hacks and beaming powers, I'm part of that group but haven't got any powers). I have experience doing such tutorials from the previous Freeworlds mod and looking at the number of views and likes that it got, I should have no trouble attracting more people to the mod, with all credit going to the developers for the actual mod.

Thoughts people?

EDIT: Should probably mention that if granted powers, all tutorials would be done on a completely separate character which would be clearly labeled.

it's a very good idea but I'd also add some step by step guides with screenshots in the forum in order to help new players to get their way into the game. It could also help old players to get back faster into the game and to appreciate the several changes from the old FW.

Some of the guides could be: char creation, faction affiliation, hyperdrive correct usage, trading guidelines, ...

I think step by Step would work best for the CP related stuff like Banking and Faction Joining etc. Something I had planned to do as I see alot of new people asking how to do it.

Thanks for your feedback Merak :D

Excellent idea! I already said to the Devs that some videos would be a great help for new players!
Just don't make them too long. People don't want to watch 18 min of you flying around . ;-)

The videos would be anywhere between 5-10 minutes each as that's what I found worked best last time. Of course something's will require a couple of helpers at times if NPCs just don't make combat realistic enough.

If possible, I would make the videos 5 min max.
The Combat one could be longer.
But especially Hyperjumping, claiming a char and moving money should be rather short.

Also, please have a gentle background song like, "Banana Phone" playing during the tutorial. :)

I'll investigate background music, I might pull some of my trading chill-step music out and have that be the backing. Information comes first though, pretty comes next
