I appreciate the feedback. Yes, i thought about it carefully before i started the series. You would fall slightly to the left of my intended audience for this series. The intention wasn’t so much to display the gameplay and convince people to give it a try. These are intended to help folks who have already heard of it and are interested but ran into frustrations/issues with installation or early survival. I do specifically say in the description and in the video that the early episodes are all installation/configuration stuff and too skip ahead if you just want to see gameplay. The series is specifically designed to give someone brand new the info they require to get the game installed and running properly. It’s NOT an easy thing to do if you are not aware of some pretty specific things i cover. You can’t even get through the world generation screen unless you are aware of using the < and > keys to move between some menu tabs.
I didn’t want to start showing gameplay then have to backup and cover the installation/configuration stuff later. It’s better to have it right at the front of the series where its an easy to find reference. I’ve been releasing about 2 videos per day and knew people would quickly have plenty of episodes to check out gameplay stuff instead. After the first video i also title the episodes with some clue about the content of that episode for quick reference, hence ‘character creation’ ‘interface’ ‘gameplay’ etc.
