Well, thank you very much! :)
By the way, I put the comments on moderated, cause I don't like having troll comments there. So it might take a little while until your comments appear since I have to approve them first - unless you're friends with my account, that's why I sent out a few invitations.

Like this Corny. Nice balanced tempo, allowing viewers to notice the details and enjoy.
A very minor issue, there are still some redundant (not much happening parts) that could be cut out. Not too much though, needs to keep the current pace in my view.

In the first part, I think I've already cut out about 17 minutes or so :D Oolite is often not that fast-paced, and I don't want to cover that up completely.
But you're right of course, watching a video where nothing happens for a minute isn't that exciting. Unless you're watching the Mikado championships.

Second part is up! *bumps thread*
Noticed that YouTube offers only 360p for HTML5... if you want direct links to the 864x480 .mov files, tell me.

Sorry, since a recent update, I can't record videos anymore. :( If I record a short piece, it works out fine, but when I record for Oolite (15 minutes minimum), it just won't finish the recording when I press Stop.. hope they fix it soon.

Cmdr. Corny,

Really brill. If I wasn't already hooked with Oolite, that would get me.

Maybe you could do a beginers docking course for the first time dockers?

I know I lost more ships learning to dock than to pirates, Till I could afford a little better equipment.

That was with the early Elite, Docking was a booger. I imagine for a new player in Oolite the docking is the same.

Making the same hard runs with a pulse laser and just a few creds to start.

Your shows might incourage newbies to have an actual go.

Oolite still remains a game without peer. As Elite did before.

Good onya Corny.

Thanks!
Well I definitely WILL dock manually at least once in that LP (and if it's just to avoid waiting in line :D). Ahruman already did a detailed how-to, that's why I didn't include one in the first episode.

Not sure how big the interest still is when I'm finished with the Python Session, but I called it "Python session" for a reason - if people are still watching, I'd enjoy making more sessions, e.g. starting out with a basic Adder (without docking computer, of course!).
