Hi All - I found WiTP: AE a few years ago and it quickly became my favorite game. However, I was frustrated at the outset by the lack of any true Basic Tutorials on YouTube or elsewhere. So, in an effort to get more people into this fantastic game I'm making my own. So far I have completed three episodes, unfortunately I can't post links here, yet, but you can search on YouTube for Strategy Gaming Dojo Basic Tutorial War in the Pacific and they should come up:

Episode 1: Intro and Options

Episode 2: The Map

Episode 3: Information

Still to Come: Episodes on Bases, Air Wings, Task Forces, Logistics, Set-Up and General Strategy (I will be putting out at least one video a day for the next several days).

Any feedback would be appreciated. I'm aiming these at the complete newbie to the game with at least a bit of experience with wargames in general. If you see something that you believe is incorrect please bring it to my attention.

***Also I will be looking for an experienced Japanese player to turn this into a Let's Play

You are using the extended map mod, but haven't applied the underlying pwhex files, which is why the Abadan and Aden bases are in the wrong location.

Edit: These screenshots should look familiar

Admiral Dadman already did a series of videos on the game, not true tutorials but playing the game and showing what things he is manipulating to get the game to do what he wants. That can be used as a starting point for players who prefer to learn by seeing the game as opposed to reading instructions. I say not a true tutorial because it does not go through all the various options for every switch and choice the player can make and explain their differences.

Kull - Ahhhhhh, yes. I've always played the stock map prior to doing this tutorial, but wanted it to look a little nicer on video. Thanks for that info and fixed

Kull - I will also be giving you a shoutout in a later video and directing people to your set-up spreadsheet

I plan on going from this into a Let's Play from the Allied perspective against the AI or an experienced Japanese player

I've now uploaded "Episode 4: Bases" and am planning on finishing "Episode 5: Cargo Ships and Logistics" tonight for anyone interested. Getting closer to being able to link the actual episodes. If you watch one and think something is in error please let me know here - I have a thick skin and really want to get good info out there to attract more players to the game

Thick skin? That should make good shoe leather . . .

In my will I specify that I should be made into a pair of boots when I die.

Do you think you should maybe send (instead of inviting them to search for) your draft videos to a couple of the old stagers on here for review, before putting them up of you-tube?

These are basic tutorials. I'm not getting into optimal Japanese aircraft engine selection. I've been playing the game long enough that I should have the basics down, I was simply asking that if someone sees a glaring error they let me know

No problem at all, my friend. I love this game and just want to make is accessible to a wider audience. It is massive and trying to decide what to cut is the hardest part

Episode 5: Logistics is up. Checking in at more than an hour and I could have talked all day

Episode 6: Task Forces is now up. Lots of talk about Kull in this one as I am using his suggested setup out of Sydney to demonstrate how to put together task forces
