    Savage Worlds Fantasy Grounds Videos.

    A little history....

    Over the years I have made videos on Savage Worlds for Fantasy Grounds and posted them on YouTube, I started this due to a competition run by Smiteworks (make a video about Fantasy Grounds, stick it up on YouTube, at the end of the month the video with the most hits, won an Ultimate License) which I won.

    I found I actually enjoyed making the videos and have carried on over the years, I only have 169 subscribers (thank you Pepor for subscribing as I typed the first draft of this) but I was recognised (by my voice) at Gen Con 2010 by people who were fans of my channel, which as a Brit on my own in another country was awesome.

    Over the years I have asked for suggestions and questions for videos and I have had a few responses, but I feel I could do more, so I have decided I'd post a thread here on the Fantasy Grounds website in the Savage Worlds Forums and "abuse" my power as a moderator to make it sticky.

    What I want to do is use this thread as a place where people can ask questions and I'll make videos to show visually the answers, in addition any suggestions or things you have noticed that have changed in Fantasy Grounds that make my videos incorrect and out of date please post and I'll make more videos.

    The videos will be focused on Savage Worlds on Fantasy Grounds, other people on this site have made much better rule set independent videos and I urge you to watch them first, once you get how Fantasy Grounds works or find something in those videos that the Savage Worlds rule set does differently please come here and ask.

    I have posted today the first part of a 4.6 update video where I cover Heavy Weapons, Heavy Armour, Combat Tracker changes and can be found here: https://youtu.be/epT_4rmXPJ4

    Phantom Whale and Ikael have made an awesome rule set for Fantasy Grounds over the years and without them I'd not have any content for my YouTube channel, so I'd like to thank them for all the hard work.

    Thanks a lot for the video. It's very useful and it's great to see some great enhancements.
    BTW I am one of your followers on YouTube.
    One video that I think would be great is to simulate a combat using all the possible functionalities. Including multiple attacks, i mean 3 attacks with one wild die only and how to treat that when targeting 2 or more opponents. (eg fanning the hammer in Deadlands).
    Showing gang up, cones and burst pointers when dealing with powers and do on. Effects and modifiers Windows.
    Would be great to show my players.

    Hello dragonheels and thank you for responding my first request how can I say no!

    I am currently finishing off part 2 of the 4.6 video this is taking longer than expected as I keep finding bugs

    I did a combat video a few versions back you are right it does need updating...

    I have always enjoyed your videos, but prior to yesterday had not subscribed. When I first started reading your OP, I was afraid it was going to lead to you saying you were done with such a thankless task. So happy that I was wrong! Subscribed now and looking forward to part 2 of your latest series.

    I would love to see a video that is not strictly about teh FG side of things (but ou would be demonstrating in FG so it would still be FG helpful) on how players can maximise their combat effectiveness...

    I am curious if power armor can add toughness I have tried and failed. I would also like to be able to set a strength die to it some thing like Armor +5 Toughness +3 (this is to show a more durable tech base) and some thing like strength d12+2.

    Hello,

    [Toughness +3] will add three toughness to the armor when resisting damage in the combat tracker, at this time you cannot make the strength d12+2 but you can add dice to strength using e.g. +2d to increase by two die steps.

    Anxiously awaiting more videos. The 4.6 video is the bees knees. I also agree with above, any combat videos are appreciated. I'm new to SW, and trying to teach my group as I learn :fail:

    Yes: [Toughness +3, Strength +2d, Agility +3d]

    Also in the next 4.6 update you can assign a value to a stat [Strength =xd] where 'x' is a number:

    [Strength = 1d] ==> d4
    [Strength = 3d] ==> d8
    [Strength = 7d] ==> d12+2
