Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
@bigchunk1
Amazingly good idea. :nod:
As a new fan of Modding i have often wondered the last few months why there wasn't a complete video tut yet. (i guessed mainly because of the work involved?)
I have already read most of the great and very extensive tut's here and at the wiki but an additional video tut will be very good as a complementary tool.
So i really support you in this great effort. Very very nice. :yes:

By the way i did find a few vid's on Youtube:

Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
How to import mod assets tutorial added. Next we will get into more advanced tabling features, eventually we will see a whole lot more types of tables.

@Blazar Yes, I saw those videoes after I started making this video series. I plan to complete the series anyways and go from there.

Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
Two more videoes are up. Making new weapons and Selecting effects to draw.

If there's anyone new to modding and following along, is everything is making sense so far? Even though I hope you are trying things out on your own as well, I want to make sure this series is more or less complete.

Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
Modding kind of forks from here in terms of topics. One could cover the sounds.tbl and other .tbl types, but I decided to start getting into .pcs2 since it was specifically requested. There's a good chance I will go back and cover other topics later.

@wookieejedi That's very encouraging to hear, thanks.

Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
New video up for anyone following the series. This one covers how to create a .pof file. Next video will cover editing of .pof files using .pcs2.

Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
Finally got a tutorial out on editing .pof files using pcs2. Here we cover the basics of rigging a fighter. Turrets, normals and subsystems will be covered in a later capship rigging video.

Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
The last of the tutorial videos I had planned is now complete. This last one covers subsystems and turreting in pcs2. I may or may not make additional videos. We'll see.

Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
A suggestion:

It might be useful to have a more detailed bullet point list in your post with what your videos are about. The idea is that later forum searches would pick up those keywords and lead people to this thread.

I finally took your advice and modified the original post. Hopefully it looks more clean and organised now.

Nah, it'd be better if it was linked in that stickied thread.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Re: Freespace Modding Tutorial Videoes
But it is. The "sticky thread" links to the wiki page about it. Perhaps it should also link to this thread. Also, the wiki page is outdated.
