So this week I'm going to be adding a tip system for newbies. Think the sort of tips you get when opening complex programs like IDEs or Civ V or whatever, with which we'd display one at login and also allow players to browse through them at their leisure. For this to be effective, we need a fairly large bank of tips so we're not displaying the same 5 over and over. As such, I'm reaching out to the playerbase for ideas!
The sorts of hints I'm looking for are relatively short, and helpful for newbies. Basic explanations of mechanics, useful commands, etc. For example, something like "Influencing offers a non-violent alternative for gaining experience. See HELP INFLUENCE to learn more!" or "PROBE is a useful command that lets you examine items and mobiles and detail." Stuff like that.
I plan on also having the ability for you all to add/suggest tips in-game once the system is in place (subject to admin review), but in the mean-time I have the forums. So, if you have any ideas for tips (be they a full tip text, or just a "hey you should mention X"), they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
ALL HAIL THE MIGHTY GLOW CLOUD.
