Aurora 4x Tutorial videos
A series dedicated to a great game with a steep learning curve...Introduction:
So I have been playing this game, and I find it really great, but my god is it confusing
So in an attempt to broaden the audience, I will be creating a bunch of (mediocre/abysmal) videos that attempt to teach new players how to install, create and get started on a new game. The tutorial is currently planned to teach the first year or so of gameplay, but I will make more once I learn more of the game myself and have a better understanding of how everything works, as well as when I have the time.
The current plan is to have 1 video a day, although deviations from that schedule are possible (and quite likely) so don't expect me to keep to it, but I will try to make up for lost days with an extra video or 2.
This is no longer the case. With school on, and other commitments I have made, keeping to this schedule is impossible. The current plan as of 26th Feb is unknown, but this series has not been officially "cancelled" yet
I hope that the tutorials are clear, concise, and most importantly enjoyable to watch. I also hope that you guys enjoy playing the game and watching the vids as much as I am currently having fun making them. No doubt we will all learn something from this.

Tell me what you think! Also comment if you have questions, and like if you think this was helpful!Current goals
So I decided to show a list of goals for this series. These are milestones that I wish to reach, and I hope that eventually these goals will be reached no problem, but I know eventually I will come across an unobtainable goal. You can help me reach these goals, and would appreciate any assistance in doing just that!
Get this thread stickied (Hopefully. Not a request, rather a goal that once an admin/moderator deems this series worthy, it will be stickied)
Goal has been completed as of 24th Feb!
2. Finish the tutorial of the game for the first year (current progress is 5 days worth)
Have at least 1 video get 1000 views (I'm not to sure how long this goal has been completed, but it has now been doubled! Whoo!!)
Have 1 video reach 20 likes (first video is currently on 24 likes! Yeah!)
5. Effectively end the series when gameplay has been explained adequately enough that players can go out and experiment with the game themselves, learning new things now that they have basic knowledge of the interface. (This will be obtained once the player base believes there is nothing left to teach. It may never be reached, it could be reached sooner than you think. But this is the grand goal at the moment, once achieved I might continue making videos on something else)
