We started with the Tekkit pack as our base and then we added my mod, Obsidian Tools, OptiFine, and finally Thaumcraft. Everything else is just from the default Tekkit pack.

I've been playing a lot of direwolf20 and saw some similarities. That's probably the Thaumcraft. Still watching, but so far so good.

A few things:

Nobody gives a crap about facecam. It's pointless, especially if you're lesser-known amongst youtubers.

You need to actually edit your video. Don't just slap together a bunch of clips (or one big long one) and call it a day. The days of people sitting down to watch an hour of people playing Minecraft are over. You're trying to make entertainment, so be entertaining.

I'm surprised by the quality of your mics, but a lot could be done to improve it as well. Just some basic noise removal and EQ would be enough.

MULTICAM. If you're playing with multiple people, I don't want to sit and watch you craft shit when they're doing something interesting.

I legitimately don't mean to toot my own horn here, but if you'd like some examples of what I'm talking about, check out this non-Minecraft video I recently edited. Every bit of that was made using freely available content or with stuff I spent money on, like the large font. Sound effects were found just by googling 'royalty free sound effects'. I got lucky with the intro music as Simon Viklund, the composer of the Payday 2 Soundtrack, allows people to freely mix and remix his tracks so long as proper credit is given. The outro track is my own that I recorded. The smoke and sparks were all found on YouTube. I personally use Sony Vegas Pro 13 to edit, but much of that could all be done with lesser software. If you plan on picking up some software (or perhaps sailing the seas in hope of finding some) I'd recommend it. It's a little more user friendly than Adobe Premiere, but a little less powerful as well. Either choice would be great.

Editing and making good video takes a lot of time to get right, and it's only through trial and error that you'll ever get close to being great. That being said, just watching a lot of other youtubers and taking notes on how they edit can really improve your own editing. I've spent God only knows how long doing just that, and I still do every single day. I try and work on a video every day, and every time I try to improve on something. It might be a small thing, like transitions between scenes. It might be a change to the audio mix. It might be a whole new outro. Hell, it might even be me recording new music. But at the end of the day, the video is less about you playing a game and having fun and more about you trying to produce a piece of quality entertainment.

You're off to a good start. Keep it up, and work on making the best videos you can make. Just look for some royalty free music, sound effects, etc. Work on making titles super clean. Play with your editing software and learn the ins and outs of every single part of it. You'll get there eventually, with a lot of hard work.

Fekkit is actually a series I started a while ago and I don't take too much pride in the editing. We couldn't do cam switches since it's different channels amongst us all. The video quality between the channels was too drastic to switch between unfortunately. The first episode of Fekkit had minimal editing since it was the start of the series. I regret that decision after the fact.

I use video-pad for my editing now. I used Movie Maker since I couldn't find any good tools when I started. I plan on starting a new Minecraft series but solo and with more editing.

I know it takes a lot of time and I'm slowly improving my quality. Thank you for your feedback. I really appreciate it. I like it when other people actually tell me what is wrong and right instead of just hitting downvote and not telling me what is wrong with it. Actually why I really like Voat instead of Reddit. No one ever told me what I did wrong on Reddit.

You'd probably do good to start a new channel that you can upload the multicam video to, then post previews or 'ads' for each new episode on your personal channels. That way each person still gets views, but they all come together to one channel. That way if you start showing ads, you can get the maximum possible revenue from doing so.
