Nice explanation indeed (though WHAT constitutes the fleet icon is never explicitly showed - and no it's not obvious even with the bigger picture for someone who never played before), how come I wasn't able to see it in-game?
I went through the full "quick tour" thing though...

Oh, another question: to tame space monsters (which DMF never explains correctly) is it necessary to build the outpost AFTER researching Domesticated Mega Fauna or the reverse order works too? And would a colony work as well as an outpost?

Either order. An outpost or colony alone will stop wild monster generation. You can add the tech later.

The quick start guide does mention the more extensive quick play guide on its first page. Anyhow, if you feel the quick start guide should be more extensive, and/or that important information is missing or incorrect, please add it and create a pull request on github. The next new player will thank you :wink:
