Tutorials
Working on some brief introductory videos to help get people started. This first one is rather obvious (to me) but it's a good place to start. In case it's not obvious to you, this will help get started on the game menus.

Need more ideas for videos, questions, comments, etc.

Updated for Day 3. Might have a few days off of tutorial videos for the weekend.

So the weekend was family time, but I did manage to get some planning and playing done. Today's results are as follows:

These are newer versions of the tutorials that I made to hopefully be a little better. Not sure I'm 100% sold on them yet so I'll leave them here until I choose to delete everything and start over.

I could use one on energy and overheat stuff, myself.
All my mechs seem to overheat like crazy (admittedly, I do tend to fire 4 or 5 weapons at a time, but even my artillery mech that only fires 1 gun at a time overheats annoyingly frequently)

I plan to cover that in both Advanced Hangar and Gameplay videos, but it's often something you will experience differently depending on your weapon choice, chassis, power plant and just plain personal style. When I use my Crusher Bot (2 LARBs) I often fire them one at a time switching back and forth, but I also overload a LOT. If you can take a speed hit, try switching to a PP1 (I'm assuming you're using a PP2). You should be able to fire ONE and get 2-3 shots out before over heating that way. So you can hopefully fire 2 without to much worry.

General rule, if you're over heating switch to a PP1 if you can afford the speed loss (and it can be a huge speed loss).
Hope that can tide you over until I get to those videos. Otherwise feel free to ask away!

Going to do a first pass at a Contract Mission video and updating the Menu video. So any suggestions for those two videos would be super helpful

Also adding in companion texts for those not wanting to watch a video.

I'm adding a section into my hangar/build text guide to cover some of this.
