I haven't watched your latest episodes yet, but just thought I would throw a suggestion out there, from a newbies point of view.

Maybe you'll get to it eventually, but I'd love to get a kind of race walkthrough. Which race is which and how to tell them apart in space.

Just wanted to let you know that I find your series very helpful and well done. Appreciate the effort you are putting into doing them.

The written guides are excellent, but it's nice to see some actual in-game guides. Just sorta makes everything complete.

Thanks,

Tarl

New version of Part 11 uploaded (a few corrections and edits). If you linked to the old one, you'll need to update your link as it was deleted.

Hi David
Ive watch most of your tutorials and all tho I'm some what farther along than your target audience (but not by much) and I think your doing a fine job. Ive played enough to get 80 mil, 10 or 12 UT's (using the The Economy and Supply Trader script), 2 M6's, and a wing of 6 M3s. My problem is I fell I'm drowning in details and no idea of what to do next. Ive read alot, but its like everyone is speakin another language. To make a long story short, will you be covering general strategies of what to do next? The why's of the game so to speak?
Thanks for helpin us noobs :)

P.S. Also on vid 11, I found a post somewhere that said to use the video function of the adv sat ( k ) to help with station building after several attempts with tubes everywhich way not using it and found that very useful. I had given up on building complexes. After using that concept I was able to attach two PRG factories together in short order that looked good too. With the wireframe images the adv sat gives you it takes the guesswork out of how close the stations are to each other.

can you do a boarding guide as most/all the other guides were written before the patch!

@Thailand, yes I plan on doing a general tips and overall strategy (including starting the chain of storyline missions) eventually. I have a few more topics I wanted to do first as time permits. My free time seems to come in bursts lately. Thanks for the reminder on sats, I may revisit that video :)

@paulms1980, I do plan on doing a boarding video as time permits. I have a couple more basics to do first (ship capping, explorer, wings, larger scale combat, etc)

Yes I second that, please show me how to board ships.
I've read alot about it but never tried it because it looked like too much hassle. However if you hear people talk about it, it doesn't seem that hard.

I'm sure your video will be the push I need, to give it a try myself.

Thanx in advance!

P.s.
Your video guides are awesome!!

@Thailand,

Thanks for that great tip!! I just made Video "11a" which I'm uploading as we speak to address Adv Sat assistance in station placement, and also address station orders for automatically depositing profit in the player's account :)

Very good stuff. If I was a beginner, I would have found this very helpful. Visual tutorials are definately lacking.

Maybe you could add some dating advice. 'Pirates love you better' or 'How to lose a split in 10 days' that sort of thing :P

Seriously though, good job
