Any thing I should know or something helpful to look at while I wait for the DL?


Thanks,

Fall to your knees in prayer and ask the Almighty to nudge the devs in the direction of giving you (and more importantly, me) a real player's manual. Yes, the menu on the front page of this site boasts a manual. It is as useful to us as Joe Biden has been to the President.
Failing that, fall to your knees and give thanks. You're about to play one awesome game.



But you're still gonna be wanting a damn manual.

Just have fun learn and poke around, manuals are for old farts and women.

Don't be afraid of doing anything wrong, just discover what things do. Takes a while but experience is much easier then memorizing.

Go slow and enjoy the *journey.* Don't worry too much about the destination.

Ask questions. Most people in the game are fantastically friendly.

1. Don't worry about energy credits. Yes, at the start you'll wonder how you're ever going to get in to the hundreds of thousands, but trust me, by the time you hit Lieutenant Commander you'll be doing mighty well for yourself.
2. Sell, sell, sell. Honestly, if you're not going to use that new shield array you picked up, sell it. don't hoard it. This ties in to point one.
3. Don't feel restricted. If you want to be a science officer in a cruiser or something, then do it.

There are others, but those are the main ones i think.

Have fun. Ask questions in game and on the forums. Google Jupiter Broadcasting and look at the STOked videos.
