I've got a great idea. In order for people to better learn the command chair without ruining the game play for others NS2 should include tutorials... okay, sorry... couldn't resist.
So anyway, pertaining to the tutorials I haven't heard a ton about them... maybe because I don't listen to all the podcasts in there entirety. I was wondering, not in too much detail, how they were going to be created. I wondered if it is possible for the NS2 team to create the tutorials with some form of open source or an editors of sorts. Doing so would allow others to create tutorials that can cover a whole array of topics and experience levels. Be they actually train by having the commander follow directions or as an informative for learning new strategies for maps. In addition, this would allow for strategy changes. As the game balances is tweaked or the communities style as a whole changes (it does, too) tutorials can be tweaked to reflect those changes. I guess what I am saying is I think the community would benefit from a cookie cutter for making their own tutorials to reflect the changes in the community and sharing of strategies by creating episodes, chapters, or books (or whatever you want to call them)
Ok... enough of my quick poor typing... I'm off to play some NS
