Should we add this information in the New Player Guide?

  1. Hello EMC,

    I would like to suggest that the New Player Guide given to new players include advice on how to make lots of rupees. I think it would help players better understand how the economy and marketing works. I remember when I was a new player, I was really confused about the economy and had no clue how to set shop. I think including information like this could eliminate that problem and could possibly have more new players decide to stick with EMC as I believe this may be what caused some of our new players to not stay.

  2. Not that I dont think this suggestion is a bad idea but when you claim your first residence in the middle/spawn it has signs and on the sign it explains some stuff about setting up a shop, it even gives an example.

  4. Hmm... Maybe give a link to this? Having to write a whole tutorial in signs would suck lol

  5. Yes but let's be honest how many players would actually click the link.

  8. Yes but then they wouldnt know what to do with it cause they dont know how to make a shop so they probably would spend it all right away

  9. It should be in the New Player book that everyone gets when they first start. I know the first time I logged on that that helped me A LOT! :p As for now, I could really use the info on getting r fast, ha ha!

  10. Not exactly as we want the new players to know of methods to make rupees so they can have more than that themselves.
  11. The issue that comes is no one reads. You can have info there and they will still be asking. There is also the tips in chat that helps and then the signs on their res..

  12. I like the idea, but I also foresee a possible problem: adding too much information could make the guide so big that it might discourage players from reading (or maybe even playing) because they might get the idea that EMC is a very difficult server. EMC sure is extensive (dozens of cool features) but it's also not as hard as it sometimes may look.

    Still.. Just wondering, we also have a new player guide on the wiki. Has anyone ever read that? Maybe it is possible to include a few tips (or references to those) in there. Not sure though, it could be something to look into I guess.

    However, this question is covered in the Empire FAQ, the place where we put the most often heard / seen questions being asked. As you can see it even links back to several guides, also player made ones.

    Which suddenly reminds me that someone started a new guide some time ago (or so I think), a 2.0 of Aikar's guide. I'll look into that right now and if suitable we might reference that in the FAQ as well (no promises up front obviously, the only thing I can promise is that we (contrib team) will be looking into this).

  13. I read the wiki all the time even if I'm just reading it for nothing, however I'm trying to speak for players who don't use the forums.

  14. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. In-game you are told to sign up for the forums... if people don't want to do it you can't force the information upon them.
  15. I didn't even know about the wiki when I started. Is it mentioned or linked in the starter guide? I don't have access to a laptop right now but if it's not that's a good idea. That would help new players a ton with commands and rupees.

  16. That's very true. By not being on the forums, new players are missing quite a bit.
