Indeed they are!

That's the magic of Google Automatic Captions at work. Usually I never write captions, it takes a very long time, but with this video I am slowly working my way through.
I guess I'm up to about 9:38 :lol:

FreeOrion 0.4.2 - Subscriber Requested Video

Hello Everyone. As some of you may recall, a while ago I made some videos showing my experiences with FreeOrion. I was not particularly pleased with how they turned out, being my first ever experience with recording gameplay, however I received some kind feedback nonetheless. I have done many playth...

Re: 0.4.2 Video

Thank you both. It makes perfect sense, its logical but was unusual/unfamiliar to my expectation because I don't recall having played a game that balances things like this. Now I understand it, thanks :)

Re: 0.4.2 Video

Also the red "!" symbols in the upper left indicate that you are wasting a some of your resources. The industry and research you generate are not saved for the next turn. Assign more projects in the research or production screen to put it to use. Thanks. Yeah I saw those exclamation points. Why did...

Re: 0.4.2 Video

On the tech screen, "100 RP and 5 turns" tells you to total cost and minimum time to research. You were only generating +5 RP (research points) per turn, so it took 20 turns to accumulate 100 RP to finish Active Radar. Yeah I noticed that about 3 seconds later :) .

Actually I'm going to do a few smaller parts which will be split into doing things well that I had troubl...

Re: 0.4.2 Video

Those floater guys! :lol: That explains many things... I changed the title to rc1. Ah ok now I saw how the fuel was going up, at first I wasn't certain because its only 0.1 per turn.

0.4.2 Video

Hi. In this video I take a look at some of the different features of the game. I also discover that in this version of the game you need to apply some kind of strategy to what you're doing :) (great) It can be seen on YouTube here And part 2 is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svXrcwNzAy4 And p...
