We’re going to level with you: we’re in a bit of a bind. We’re trying to make the knowledgebase as robust and informative as possible, but with GMs working their collective rear-ends off responding to inquiries in-game and answering support requests 24/7, right now doing so seems unrealistic.

That’s where you come in. We need your help!

If you think of something that would be a good Knowledgebase entry, write it! If you find an old entry that needs to be changed, update it! Post your submissions here, and if we use what you wrote you’ll get 50 Reward Points per submission, with an extra 250 point bounty for every five submissions of yours that we accept.

What’s the catch? There is no catch; you would be helping us help others learn about how Fallen Earth works. Plus now when newbies ask questions you can point them to the knowledgebase with confidence, and they will learn of a helpful tool to answer their future questions!

In order to maximize the chance your articles will be selected, make absolutely sure that what you submit is 100% accurate. If not, someone else might submit one on the same topic that’s only slightly better and we’ll have to choose theirs instead!

If you’re submitting a NEW article, please include the following in your post:

  • Topic of article you’re creating (please refer to http://help.gamersfirst.com/?t=47561 to view all the topics available)
  • Article Name – This is usually the Question that is being asked and will become the subject line or article name.
  • Article Body – This area will include a full descriptive response to the question that is being asked.
  • Please use these articles as a guide:
  • http://help.gamersfirst.com/customer/portal/articles/203188-where-can-i-view-the-latest-patch-notes-?t=47561
  • http://help.gamersfirst.com/customer/portal/articles/203435-how-do-i-view-my-journal-?t=47561
  • http://help.gamersfirst.com/customer/portal/articles/203374-how-do-i-increase-game-performance-for-fallen-earth-?t=47561
  • Player character name – so we can get you your reward points if your submission is accepted
If you’re submitting an EDITED version of an existing article please include the following in your post:
  • Topic of article you’re editing
  • Article name you’re editing
  • Please reply with the full complete edited text. Do not include just portions.

  • If an article in the knowledgebase does not refer to anything that is currently in Fallen Earth then please reply with that information. Example: If there is a knowledgebase article on Athletics – let us know the above information and simply put “This stat is no longer used. It was an attribute when the game was first released”.
  • Player character name – so we can get you your reward points if your submission is accepted.

Every Tuesday starting November 22, we will reward the points to the characters whose articles we chose to publish.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons for thou art crunchy and go well with ketchup!

I've noticed this come up as a question in the Global chat channels quite a bit. I remembered reading a patch note regarding the issue.

Topic: Character Advancement
Article Title: Gear - Why did my Resists go down?
Article Body: Derivative resist values - the percentage value after the listed amount of resistance - are directly related to the player's level and Armor Use value. If a player advances in level beyond the intended usefulness of his or her armor, they will notice diminishing returns on the percentage of resists afforded by the piece of armor. Consider keeping equipment as updated as possible to prevent suffering from these diminishing returns.

Source - Patch 1.7.4 Notes:

Added the resist percentages in addition to the total resists in the gear window which are based on Player Level and Armor Use.

Let´s get this started, I could use a commander´s best crafting kit :)

Topic: Social
Article Title: How do I add friends?
Article Body:
Sometimes you meet a nice player you want to stay in touch with. Fallen Earth has an ingame friend list. You can add friends using the following methods:

- If the other player is standing close to you, click his avatar with the right mouse button and select "Add to Friends" in the pop-up menu.
- If the other player wrote something in a private chat session or in one of the public channels, click on his name with the right mouse button and select "Add to Friends" in the pop-up menu.
- If you want to manually add somebody to your friend list you can also type: /friend add Firstname Lastname (or only Firstname if the player doesn´t have a second name, of course)

Players will not get a notification that you added them, if you want them to know you need to tell it to them yourself. To check if one of your friends is currently online, press O to open the social window and click on the "Friends" tab. There you can click on their name with the right mouse button and select "Send private message" to start a chat.

You can remove players from your friend list anytime: open the social window with O, click on the "Friends" tab, click on the name with the right mouse button and select "Delete from Friends". Friends will not get a notification that you removed them from your list.

Topic: Social
Article Title: How do I ignore players?
Article Body:
Not everybody likes everybody equally, it can´t be helped. Sometimes you meet a player you don´t like and want to avoid in the future. Fallen Earth has an ingame ignore list. You can add players to this list using the following methods:

- If the other player is standing close to you, click his avatar with the right mouse button and select "Add to Ignore List" in the pop-up menu.
- If the other player wrote something in a private chat session or in one of the public channels, click on his name with the right mouse button and select "Add to Ignore List" in the pop-up menu.
- If you want to manually add somebody to your ignore list you can also type: /ignore add Firstname Lastname (or only Firstname if the player doesn´t have a second name, of course)

While you will still see ignored players inside the world, they will not be able to start chat sessions with you anymore and you will not have to read their messages in public chat channels anymore. Players will not get a notification that you ignore them, if you want them to know you need to tell it to them yourself.

You can remove players from your ignore list anytime: open the social window with O, click on the "Ignore" tab, click on the name with the right mouse button and select "Remove from Ignore List". Players will not get a notification that you stopped ignoring them.

Topic:Vehicles
Article Title:How do I use a vehicle or mount?
Article Body: During your time in the Province, you’ll have to travel a long ways. Fortunately, people still know how to get places quickly. While only the largest population centers in the Grand Canyon Province have anything even remotely resembling public transportation, many folks still bring their own wheels (or hooves).

If you encounter a method of transportation that you own and want to use, simply right-click the vehicle or mount and you will be able to ride it. Vehicles allow you to move faster and store items, but they limit your options for weapons and consume fuel. Vehicles may be destroyed by other players only in PvP zones, but they can be attacked by NPCs in any location. Vehicles that run out of fuel will not move, but they can be towed to garages through interacting with Garage and Stable Manager NPCs.

To dismount your horse or vehicle simply right click on your mount's hindquarters or rear section. You can also dismount by pressing the mount action button located in the Actions window.

Article body:
To split a stack of items right click on it, select 'split', specify the size of the new stack and click
on an empty slot inside the same container as the original stack is in. So when you want to split a stack
inside your sector vault, click inside the sector vault, when you want to split a stack inside your horses
saddlebag, click inside the saddlebag, etc.

---------------------------------


I would like to add to the topic that, as i stated earlier, i'd give updating the 'The Game' subsection of the website a higher priority than updating 'Support -> Knowledge Base' since the former has a greater reach. (Read: Tele :Bump: )

Topic: Getting started.
Name of Article: How can I get crafting books other then from NPC vendors?
Article Body:
If you look in your recipe book, you will see that you have the ability to make a recipe book for every category of crafting that you have knowledge of. Other players can do this too. This means that you can ask friends or clan mates to make these books for you instead of buying them from vendors. The materials needed increase for higher level recipes, but at low levels most recipes require only a pen and a sheet of paper.

Character name: Tychius.

Topic: Getting Started.
Name of Article: How can I make some extra chips at low level?

Article Body:
Aside from completing missions and killing enemies out in the world to sell their loot, you can make chips in Fallen Earth through other means. One good way to do this at very low levels is to make Grilled Chicken to sell to NPC vendors. You will need to skill up your cooking to 30 and buy the Grilling recipe book from a cooking trainer, or get a copy from a friendly player. Once you have done this, find a spot with lots of low level Prairy Chickens and kills lot of them for tainted meat. This is the only ingredient in Grilled Chicken. Keep the recipe queued up while you are killing the chickens and when your inventory if full go unload at the vendor. The grilled chicken sells for 50 white chips a stack - good money for a lowbie!

Topic: The World
Article name: Progress towns - What is a progress town?
Article body:
A progress town is a settlement that players build themselves but have to defend too.
The first place where you can do so is Progress in the Northfields, northeast of New Flagstaff. It is designed as a group activity,
so bring some friends or random strangers maybe. When you first arrive there most probably you'll have to clear the area of enemies
and the place is vacant safe for an informant NPC and a merchant. The latter offers recipe books for the available buildings and defenses.
The buildings offer several amenities for harvesting and crafting as well as a very rewarding repeatable mission for defending the town,
since it will get invaded at regular intervals (every 75 minutes). The informant can tell you when the next attack will be.

Topic: Serendipity Loots

Article Name: Telling the difference between Veteran Mobs and Serendipity loot Veterans (General Serendipity Knowledge Guide)

Article Body: Serendipity loots spawn in locations where every spawn is not a Veteran, for instance Rest Stop has infected that normally spawn there. But when the Veteran spawns, when you kill it they will loot a item that can be sold for big money or kept for social use or even use for yourself. Outside of knowing the actual or rough locations of where these veterans are there are a couple theories behind how the drop system works.. You can at times find yourself at these location's killing spawn after spawn after spawn with no results.. This is normal, whenever you hear about someone rolling up to a serendipity drop and getting the Veteran to spawn within minutes was either really lucky or a liar.. But it is possible to have them spawn within minutes of getting there, but it is not common so dont expect the same results.. The more regular spawns you kill gives each one of those spawns a chance to spawn a Veteran back in its place.. So if you go and clear out the whole spawn you'll have to babysit and recheck every single spawn location... Also without instances this means you have to compete with other people after the same big money item that you are and that can also be frustrating.. But that is all apart of hunting for rare loots that sell for a quick and easy red chips, you will have competition.. Its best to hunt in groups to try and discourage other loot hunters from coming and trying to out DPS a group, then do /roll in team chat and highest roll wins that loot, then that person sits out next roll and so on. Keeping a small killing area will reduce the chance for missing the Veteran spawning in area's like caves and large spawn areas like the Cigar spawn is..

Topic: Consumables

Article Name: Buff Slots

Article Base: You are allowed several slots to buff your charecter:

Medical Buff Slot: Usually Staunch Wound(adds to health regen)

Food Buff Slot - Consumable (will be lost if cloned)

Drink Buff Slot - Consumable (will be lost if cloned)

Science Buff Slot - Consumable (will be lost if cloned)

Tent Buff Slot - Is consumed in use but the Tent itself will remain for 3 hours and owner of the camp needs to be within ranged and you must be grouped with them.. (will be lost if cloned and/or rez'ed)

Aura Buff Slot - (skill based) Can be given by group members as well as equipped by yourself as well to be given to other team members, so this slot must be used wisely in teams to try and get as many running at once.. This will only stack if your team members are running different Aura's then you..

Stances - Skill Based and can only be used 1 at a time

All these slots can be used at once time..

=====================================================================

Topic: AP

Article Name: Bonus AP

Article Body: Bonus AP is rewarded to you in several ways:

You can either do AP missions given by certain NPC's in every town in the game up till S3.

Road Races are another way to earn Bonus AP, which are given out usually by Franklin Riders

Random AP gain, which is given to you randomly for no reason other then you actively playing the game

You are allowed 5 bonus AP per level you raise and given 35 at your first level to help you start.. This totals Bonus AP out at 310 by the time your level 55

=====================================================================

Topic: Character Slot Utilization

Article Name: Social Character

Article Body: Making a character that uses social will help you along the way as you level up your main character, everything you normally would sell or buy from a vendor can be bought cheaper and sold for more money when you have a character that uses social.. You can also max the intelligence on this character and utilize them as a crafter as well so it will serve multiple functions at once and still have enough damage to kill NPC's.. Items and money can be exchanged from character to character via in game mailing system.. Or by starting a clan and using clan vaults to exchange money and items without using mail.

=====================================================================

Topic: PvP

Article Name: Difference between /duel, /pvp and Bloodsports

Article Body: Dueling is done in open world and has to be in a non pvp zone and both contestants have to be non pvp flagged. The fight lasts 5 minutes unless someone forfeits and then the winner will gain dueling rank while the loser loses some of theirs..

/PVP is when you type /pvp into your chat menu and you become vulnerable to attack from anyone else that is flagged in the game regardless of level, faction or politics.. When you type /pvp you are now what everyone calls flagged, if you get killed while flagged you will be sent to the closest cloner and lose any consumable buffs you had running and will need to reset auras and your mutation buff and re consume any food drink or science you might have used.. If you stay with inside the cloner you will be given a immunity that lasts 24 hours if you stay within the cloner, but will lose it once you step foot outside..

The other way to engage in PVP is by entering PVP zones which are marked on your regional maps, and you will also by informed by the game itself that you are now entering a PVP Zone.. Some PVP zones are factional control some arent, some zones will drop your ability to be attacked by other players when leaving them and some dont and give you a 5 minute timer till you are clear.

Bloodsports is the final way to PVP on Fallen Earth, this is a event you sign up for that has 4 events.. Once given a team if there are teams(deathmatch excluded) The match begins and people go out and battle till the time runs out or the match is over.. You are not penalized for dieing in bloodsports, all consumable buffs will stay when killed and no ammo is used up for ranged when fighting.

Topic: PVP

Article Name: Earning and Spending Death Toll

Article Body: While in Fallen Earth you may notice people that have (PVP) next to there names, these people are flagged for player vs player combat and if killed will give you a small amount of death toll. This Death Toll once collected in high enough amounts can be used at merchants throughout the world of Fallen Earth to buy anything from weapons and armor to materials and consumables. Bloodsports also rewards death toll and also in a higher volume then open world PVP does.

Topic: Fast Travel

Article Name: Fast Travel for Dummies

Article Base: Stopping at every single cloner you see to register your clone information is vital for Fast Traveling the waste lands.. This will give you the option of traveling anywhere within the game as long as there is a cloner close by you have your information stored at.. But it costs money and should only be used on a regular basis if you have the chips for it, but while your still out on your old Nags, dont forget to stop in at the Life Nets and store you information.

Topic: Auction House

Title: Using the Auction Hall to make profit rather then wasting time

Article: When going to sell items on the auction hall it is best to check the prices set on the item before actually putting it up for sale and guessing the prices.. If there arent any of those items being sold because its either rare or not useful to people in the game.. If there are millions of the same item that means that the market just isnt there because of how common the item itself is.. Your not gonna make money asking everyone coming out of the life net from the tutorial for there crude shiv's and sell them on the AH for profit.. Items like that are best sold to merchants for a instant sales, you have to really dig deep sometimes to find a fair price that people will pay.. Next thing you have to do is pool knowledge from the player base as far as what things you should and should not be selling.. As these things are constantly changing a list can never really be made only updated.. But things that do have value and will sell are things like some materials(rarer the better) Clothes(RP and Social) Weapons and Ammo, Armor, Consumables both med/science and food/drink, Construction Camps and Harvesters, Bandages, Vehicles and rare loots and other misc items that are hard to find. It is best to put shorter auction times instead of 5 days or even 2 days, chances are someone will have put the same item for cheaper on there if not multiple people and you will have to wait that time out till you can get your item back.. You can buy out your item but make sure you dont check post anonymously so you know that it is for sure your item.. You can't remove the item manually without actually buying it yourself and is another reason it is good to keep shorter posting times.. 8 hours is best, also after about 8 hours more things might have been added to the category your auction is in and will move it down the list, so by selecting 8 hours you can put it back to the top of the list by re auctioning it.

Topic: General Gameplay

Title: Having Crafter seperate from Combat Character

Article: When deciding that your tired of buying certain items and wanna make your own, don't start crafting on your combat character.. Go back to character select and start another character that will be used for crafting.. Why you ask? Well when crafting you get a time reduction bonus for crafting while within the designated workshop for the tradeskill your crafting with.. Crafting usually requires holding a lot of materials that can way you down on your journey to collect more materials so you in turn can craft more items.. You can use this crafter as storage for all your materials you gather as well, while your sitting in a workshop not even online... Thats right if you leave your character inside the workshop and log out and shut down your computer your character will continue to craft for you.. So when you set your crafter up with materials and set up your crafting que's you are now free to have a empty pack on your combat toon that can go out and collect more things to sell and materials to craft.. 2 bird with 1 stone as they say.. When you just craft while you run around the waste lands youll be moving at half the speed your alt will be... plus you'll be leveling 2 characters at once because crafting gives you xp gain as well..

Topic: Builds

Title: Making builds that suit your wants/needs but also dont waste large amounts of AP doing so

Article: When constructing builds on Fallen Earth it can be rather overwhelming for new players.. Knowing the function of how building a template will help you vastly at not wasting that ever so important AP. Firstly you have Skills, these are your non mutation skills and have 2 stats that control how high each skill can go.. So you only want to invest AP into a stat unless you need to raise the cap of a skill or mutation.. Now for certain skills you will only want to invest enough points to get a certain skill/buff or like weapon skills only invest enough to use certain weapons..

Your first run thru this game should be spent building your character as best you can but nobody gets it right the first time, luckily there are respec injectors you can buy with g1 points and reward points to min/max your AP points/Template.. The key is to not over invest in stats and make skill max's as close to your desired skill level best you can by controlling the amount invested in your stats.. Min/max'ing is also the same for mutations as well.

Title: Parking a mount before leaving a sector

Article: Remember clones now more then ever with all this sector to sector fast traveling going on, to store your mounts/vehicles before leaving the sector.. If you are low on chips you could be in for a long walk back to where your mount/vehicle was.. You receive a significant penalty in tow cost if your mount/vehicle is left un parked at a stall/garage.. Sounds easy enough, but you would be surprised how common this can be.

The more advanced your mount/vehicle the higher the tow costs become..

Topic:Using an item from an NPC
Article name:How do I extract DNA from Creepers, give shots etc
Article body:
Occasionally an NPC will give you an item to use on critters or other NPC's. To use this item, such as a DNA Extractor for instance, it is best to place it into a numbered slot of your Hotkey Bar. After you have done that find the critter you need, shoot it once to get it away from other mobs and to come to you, DO NOT KILL IT, once the critter is in range use the numbered slot. You'll get a message that you have extracted DNA, you may then kill the critter, rinse/repeat as necessary. This technique can be used with any item with the exception of shooting most NPC's..

Topic: Inventory

Article Name: How should I use the different Bank Vault types?

Article Body:
There are 4 different types of bank vaults, each providing 64 slots of storage with no weight limits.

Sector Vaults are located in all towns and in a few special field locations. Use these to save items that you will need on a regular basis and/or that you are currently collecting on a regular basis. This is the only vault type available in starting areas.

Barter Vaults are located in a few central towns in each sector and also in all faction towns. You will often have to travel to access one of these, so use them for overflow storage and for more specialized crafting items that you only use occasionally, such as Cooking.

VIP Vaults are relatively rare and typically only occur once in each sector. S1: Embry Crossroads, S2: New Flagstaff, S3: Stronghold. There is also VIP vault in Blaine, but you can't access it until you have the Banker's mission to visit the bank president. Only put items that you don't usually need access to in these vaults, like book collections or equipment that you want to save for later.

Utility Vaults are the rarest of all with the two main locations in Embry Crossroads and Stronghold. This is best for long term archival of items that you will rarely use but are ready to get rid of. You might also store old equipment that you want to pass on to others.

Note: Clans also get a clan tab on these vaults, but most members won't be able to take items from clan vaults. Embry Crossroads is the only location where characters below level 25 will have access to all 4 vault types.

Article Name: How do I respec (Respend AP)?

Article Body:
Sometimes mistakes are made when spending AP and we spend points in wrong places or we want to change from a melee character to a rifle character. So how do we get that precious AP back?

In order to get the AP you spent back you must go into a town with a "Mutagenics Merchant/Trainer" whom will more than likely sell a ______ Recombinant Injector where the "______" will hold the word "Weak" or "Basic" or a keyword along the lines of that. This keyword before Recombinant Injector is crucial as it will determine the level bracket for using that specific Recombinant Injector. For example:
Weak Recombinant Injector: Levels 1-10 with 10 respec points
Basic Recombinant Injector: Levels 11-20 with 5 respec points
Simple Recombinant Injector: Levels 21-30 with 15 respec points
Average Recombinant Injector: Levels 31-40 with 20 respec points
Advanced Recombinant Injector: Levels 41-50 with 200 respec points
Pristine Recombinant Injector: FULL RESPEC! All points are given back but is only available off of Reward Point Merchants or the Fallen Earth webstore

The merchants that sell these items will be in major towns and will sell the level bracketed injector in respect to the level of creatures and quests in that area (ie: Embry Crossroads will sell a Basic Recombinant Injector)

So now that you've purchased the correct injector, how do you use it?

1) Locate the injector in your inventory.
2) Right click the injector and select "use"
3) Navigate to your AP Menu and you'll see a new button at the bottom right of that menu that says "Respec". Click that.
4) Select the skill you wish to return AP from then click the down arrow at the bottom of the window to decrease the AP in that skill. When completed, click "Preview" at the bottom right where "Respec" used to be.
5) Confirm that the returned AP points are correct and confirm.
6) Spend your returned AP points as you please. If you have more than one injector you wish to use, repeat steps 1-6

Article Title: How do I set custom waypoints?

Article Body: Have you found an area in Fallen Earth that you'd like to mark down and return to later? Maybe an area full of resource nodes you can't harvest yet, or enemies you'd like to come back for at a higher character level? Custom waypoints can be created to help you remember locations like these. To set a custom waypoint, start by opening your map (the default shortcut for this is the M key). From here, you can right-click on a point on the map to quickly set a waypoint at those map coordinates, which will appear as a yellow X on your map. You will notice, though, that only one custom waypoint may be active on the map at any given time. If you would like set and manage multiple custom waypoints, you should open the waypoints menu by using the keyboard command Alt+P. This menu will allow you to create additional waypoints at your current location, edit or delete existing waypoints, or set the custom waypoint that is currently active on your map.

EDIT: I'd be happy to edit any (many look like they need it) existing articles or submissions to bring them up to a standard of grammatical quality, if that's important, here. There could be some organizational changes, as well. I would suggest breaking the existing topics into subtopics within them (most already are, but is done poorly, with the subtopic title before the article title; rather, it would greatly aid readability if each topic linked to subtopics in the same way that each topic is currently viewed in the knowledge base page proper, if that makes sense.

My character is Fettuccine Alfredo.


The World - Travel - I lost my horse how can I find it ?
If you have a active mount a small white circlular icon with a red or green square shape in the center will appear on your minimap to indicate your mounts location in the world. You can track your mount down on foot by following this waypoint or you can tow your mount at a stable manager for a fee. Stable managers and Garage managers are usually found at small garage like buildings either in or just outside of towns. Stable managers can also provide a list of horses that you own. Alternatively you can open your main menu and click the mounts button to get a list of your mounts.


Character Advancement - Tradeskill - How do I increase my nature / scavenging skill ?
To increase your nature or scavenging skill you need to begin by harvesting things that only require level 1 skill. For example logs, stumps, water bottles and scrap wood. These lower level resources are more concentrated near low level towns but they are usually scattered about everywhere else also. Occasionally you might find a hot spot for a certain resource.



General - How do I rotate the camera around my character ?
To rotate the camera around your character hold the alt button and drag with the right mouse button.


Getting Started - What are the different classes ?
In Fallen Earth you must create your own custom class by increasing your abilities with advancement points.
Advancement points are gained by leveling up and completing missions.

Character Advancement - Tradeskill - How do i mine copper?

One of the very early quests will ask you to go and mine some copper, read the books that the NPC gave you, then venture out and locate a copper node, they can be seen on the map and minimap as orange icons.

When you have found a copper node, simply right mouse click on it or alternatively you can highlight the copper node by hovering over it and then press Y to mine it.


The following entry i believe to be incorrect,
http://help.gamersfi...l-from-?t=47561

I recommend adjustment to read as:

Mining Node : Geologic Chemical Deposit

Getting Started - I can't click on a tab or button. How do I fix it?

Re-size the window and try again.


The World - Why have my Power and Weapon skills gone down and I have, "Debilitating Weakness 1 Plague" or "Debilitating Weakness 1 Spread", status effects when I'm in town?

It's a dirty post-apocalyptic world! What did you expect?
To be honest it's probably a bug, but according to the Fallen Earth Wikia page for Debilitating Weakness, this is a contagious debuff that spreads to other people once a person near them recovers from it.


The World - How do I sell an item to another player?

There are three ways to do so: the Auction House, Mail, or Barter.

Auction House
If you decide to use the Auction House you'll need to head over to the nearest NPC that holds the title of (Auctioneer) and left click on them (the Auctioneer uses a Wooden Hammer as its symbol on the radar/map). Doing so will bring up the Auction House window.
Using the Auction House is fairly self explanatory and compared to the other 2 ways to sell your item, is usually the most expensive to use fee wise (the Auction Fee is taken upfront). Once your item is bought you'll receive a message in the chat window and the amount of chips it sold for in the mail.
Depending on the value of the item you're selling and the length of the auction you chose, the auction fees can get pretty expensive. In case your item did not sell it will be returned to you through the mail, along with a portion of the auction fee.

Mail
In order to sell the item through the mail click on one of the several blue mailboxes located in a town (shown as a white envelope in the radar/map), doing so will bring up the Inbox window.
1-Click on the icon with the paper and pencil
2-Type in the name of the buyer in the "To:" blank
3-Select COD (cash on hand) in the drop down menu (it shows None by default)
4-Drag and drop the item you want to sell to the message window
5-Select the amount of chips you want to receive in exchange for your item
6-Double check your work
7-Send the package by clicking on the the envelope with a blue arrow icon.
Once the buyer accepts the package you'll receive a message with the agreed upon chips. To check for messages click on the icon with the envelope and red check mark in the Inbox window. Double click your new message receive your chips.
Do note that sending a message by mail, whether or not chips and/or items are exchanged will always cost 10 white chips, unlike the Auction House .

Barter
Probably the most time consuming but "Free" way of selling is by using the Barter function. In order to sell an item in this way you'll have to arrange a meeting with the buyer. Once you meet the buyer right click on their character and select Barter. Drag the item/s you want to sell to the barter window and include chips as needed. The amount of chips you'll receive will be shown in the lowest portion of the window and any items you'll receive will be on the right side of the window. Be sure that you agree with what you're about to barter and then click the Accept button.

Topic : Items for crafting and conflict

Article Name : How do i customize (dye) my clothes?

Article body :
People want to stand out from the crowd right, but you ask how would i change my outfit?
Well start out by getting a paint/dye set. These can be made by yourself or bought at the auction. Now that you have you dye set with the item in your inventory right click the item you want to dye. From there you will see a small menu pop up next to the item. Click the dye option in the menu (Some items may not have this option!). A panel will appear on your screen with the item in the left box and three slots on the right (Depending on the item not all slots are open). Now drag your dye into one of the three slots from here you can change the color and what to dye. If you don't like the slot you have chosen then drag the dye to another slot (Each slot has its own function of changing the item). If you like what you have done then click finish and you will have your own custom clothing. A small warning depending on the item level your changing the dye may not work, Example: a basic dye set only dyes items between that have a 1-15 item level, so a basic dye would not change a level 17 item. Happy Dyeing Wastelanders!

Topic: Getting Started (possibly Character Advancement)

Article Name: How should I spend my AP (Attribute Points)?

Player Character Name: Tai Owens

The attributes dialogue has four categories. You can spend AP (attribute points) to boost three of them, the fourth you boost by using the skills.

The three you can improve directly are Stats, Skills and Mutations. Stats are your base level attributes - how strong, intelligent, determined and coordinated your character is. These have effects which flow on directly to all the other three categories.
The category you can't improve directly is Tradeskills.

Increasing your level increases the maximum for all attributes; but for the derived attributes (skills, mutations and tradeskills), increasing your stats also increases the maximum. To the right of each of the derived attributes there is an icon showing which stats affect the derived attribute: as an example, all tradeskills are derived from intelligence and perception.

Characters who intend to do a lot of crafting should maintain a high intelligence and perception: characters which are specialist crafters should keep them maximised.

Most characters will need some sort of fighting skill. If you look at the skills tab, you can see that there are three attack skills: melee, pistol and rifle. Melee covers both one and two-handed melee weapons; pistol covers both handguns and most submachine guns; rifle covers both rifles and most shotguns. Melee depends on strength and coordination, pistol and rifle on dexterity and perception.

Thus, if you choose to be a melee fighter, you should maximise your strength and coordination. For a firearms specialist, dexterity and perception. (You may notice that a crafter also wants to maximise perception - often you can design a multipurpose build by looking at what works together.)

Next you should look at some sample weapons, and determine what the defence skill for that weapon is. Since we don't have any handy; I'll tell you: melee weapons use the melee skill (described in the weapon descriptions as 'melee defence'); firearms use dodge. So firearms fighters will also usually want to take dodge; which means also boosting coordination and perception.

I strongly recommend taking one of the healing skills; first aid, empathic, or nano-manipulation. (Be aware that nano-manipulation heals others, but not yourself.)

Other than that, the choice of which additional skills to take depends on what sort of character you want to build. See the upcoming knowledgebase articles about skills and mutations for advice on what each skill is good for.




NOTE: It would be a very good idea to have images of each tab of the attributes dialogue included in this knowledgebase article. I have images for it on my hard drive, and would be happy to donate them.
NOTE 2: Yes, I'd like to write articles about skills, mutations, tradeskills and stats; if you want them.

Each faction has a distinct color on the radar and on the nametag that appears when you target someone. Players will show as this color consistently, irrespective of your own faction. The colors are as follows:

CHOTA - red
Traveler - purple
Tech - blue
Lightbearer - orange
Vista - green
Enforcer - brown
