I am working through this :o - it seems to have a lot of the info I need. I am really a beginner, so I don’t have a lot of blender background so my comments are meant to help make this tutorial more usable for some one like me.
Basically, it is this: the instructions work very well in getting to the specific result aimed at in the tutorial, but there is so little explanation that real in-depth understanding is hard to come by. The comments are pretty much like the kind of comments you would expect in source code - they assume familiarity with the concepts behind the language.
If, like me, you don’t have those concepts, then the usefulness is reduced, and I find myself constantly asking “why did he do that?” and going off to find some other documentation to explain it. It is not always possible to find an explanation, and even if one exists it is very time consuming to track it down.
SInce this tutorial contains an end to end process for creating a complete game, then it could serve as a superb tutorial if only it contained a “why I did this” kind of explanation for each step.
I hesitate to ask the original author to devote even more of his time to the tutorial, but maybe the community could adopt the tutorial and collaboratively expand it with links to explain it. For instance, I am sure that there are docs which detail the “why” at various stages and the simple addition of a link would make understanding so much easier.
Sorry to rabbit on at such length, but I am working off a little frustration here.
