Kinetic Void Tutorials (Start Here!!)
Please note I need to update these since we got the new shipyard in May 2014, they will be getting updated one by one
Below are helpful tutorials for playing Kinetic Void. Please note that there is also an in-game guide which will display during the shipyard automatically, and you can have it display again during Sector mode by going through the Options. Also, our Guides Page has the below guides as well as additional information submitted by our fantastic community :)

A wealth of information. And useful for those deciding whether or not to purchase (based on the game's current state, and indeed planned state).

Nice work Kaypix, the developers are lucky to have you.

Thank you Kaypix , You've helped an old fighter pilot who's not so computer saavy get a start in a new " Void " of this space gaming Universe we enjoy traveling in together ..

YoYo, you're most welcome! Let me know if you need anything as far as information/tutorials, it's what I do :)

Any chance these get updated?

I got this game last night(humble sale) and so much is different from these tutorials, I was completely lost, and had no idea what to do. I tried to just wing it but that did not work out well.

ChasaB,

Kaypix does update these pretty regularly we just launched the new shipyard and she's been working on the tutorials for it. I believe she was rendering out the new video yesterday but she's been having some issues with the recording software making the game appear laggy. Hopefully aether's video will help you out till she gets everything above updated.

I broke the video :( It crashed my computer.

And this folks, is what happens when you let Lumbering "Lets put a giant lagy ship into the game" Troll, touch your computer. Bad, bad things happen.

I switched from using Camtasia to record to FRAPS, I've been playing around with putting together a new video with that, and my computer is much happier.

What program are you using to copress the FRAPS videos?
Kaypix  [developer] May 15 @ 2:43pm 
They're coming in as .AVI, then I'm editing them in Camtasia. It's almost 5 now but if I play my cards right I might have a demo video of 1:00 up before I go home, I'll link to the YouTube so you can see how it runs. FRAPS pushed at 60 FPS, Camtasia I'll be outputting to YouTube directly (it'll be through my personal YouTube, then i'll share to the studio's page from there).
aether.tech May 15 @ 2:53pm 
60FPS, oh dear fuzzy satan! Thats going to be big file.

Is there supposed to be no KFG available for your ship, when not starting in creative mode?
[Edit:] Well, scratch that. there's none in creative, either. I can build as many ships as I want, but head into space with none of them (Linux version). :(

Ketzerfreund:
Kinetic Field Generators are subsystems available on Hull pieces specifically, the first of which is available at a size 1 hull if you don't have anything else on it. As you add subsystems, the remaining capacity is diminished (naturally) and anything larger than what's left is automatically hidden. We're aware of some Linux issues right now specifically in the shipyard+subsystem/right clicking options and are looking at how to get them fixed for our users.

Aether: I believe my videos are averaging in the GB range for even short files, but they look sooo much nicer!
