I am about to start doing Let's Plays again. My first video tho will be a video going over the basics of crafting and stuff. I was just wondering a couple things.
1. What else should I cover in my crafting video?
I am going over all the crafting materials, (wood-diamond),pork and bread, how cobble is made, how obsidian is made, how to make a portal, how to craft each tool. ( i just noticed I missed the sword, and I need to show armor) how to make flint and steel and where to get flint.
2. What texture pack if any would appeal to most of the audience?
3. Should I use a random seed or one like Glacier or something?
You may want to consider dividing those tasks up into multiple videos. That way you can focus on giving some higher quality instructions without having to worry about time, and it would also allow for people to more easily find the instructions they are looking for without having to search for it in one long video. Just a thought.
I would personally go with the default texture pack since that's what everyone starts off with and will be the most familiar with. It's also my personal favorite...so perhaps I have a slight bias...
Also, I wouldn't give too much attention to the seed. Just let it randomly generate. I think some authenticity is taken away when you choose the seed you use.
