View Full Version : Tutorial

I was wondering what form the tutorial would take? Would it be seperate from the campaigns, or integrated into each campaign as you come to a new concept? I'm asking this because IMO, a tutorial can make or break a game. Take Settlers III, for example. It only explained the basic concepts (not naval combat, priests etc). I lost interest because I was so unfamiliar with the game. Please, explain everything you can in the tutorial (You do have one, don't you?:( ). I don't care if it explains every single thing and takes forever.

It would be nice to split it into chapters, say:
Simple Commands Advanced Unit Abilities Base Building Magic Naval Combat Siege Race Specifics & General Tactics

I'd love a tutorial but without all the basic click on the unit to select them incredibly basic commands, I'd just include those commands in the instructions.

Back on topic, I'd like there to be advanced levels of the tutorial for once you master the basics.

Yeah, maybe there could be tutorial levels that tought you finer points of using formations, managing economy and applying thm to certain circumstances.
