FreeOrion 0.4.2 - Subscriber Requested Video

#1 Post by ShockPuppet » Wed May 22, 2013 12:26 am

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 playthroughs of 0.4.2 since this time, and I have also worked on expanding my skill set with creating online video.

At the request of my subscribers, I have revisited my look at FreeOrion, and I feel much better about how I have presented it.

I have started to reach regular viewers and build a following on YouTube, and as such I have not created this post to spam my video, but rather to make the FreeOrion team and fans aware that I have showed the game off.

I feel that this time around I have done things better, and I intend to showcase FreeOrion from time to time if and when people that are subscribed to me request I do so.

If you take a look at my video: Freeorion 0.4.2 Gameplay I would appreciate some feedback, strategy tips, opinions and critique of any kind.

I have followed FreeOrion for about 7 or 8 years now (since I was in my mid 20's) but my visits to the forum have sometimes been lengthy between rounds, and usernames and passwords have been forgotten (I also used to frequent the Moo3 forums a long time ago). I have not contributed to the game development at all, as I feel that my lack of knowledge in the required areas should render silence as opposed to poorly structured contributions - however I do admire everyone who has been involved and continues to be involved.

Cheers for reading.

The subtitles from 9:38 onward are... interesting....
Warning: Antarans in dimensional portal are closer than they appear.

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:
