We're going to work on a number of short youtube videos focused on specific tasks in the game. The tutorial will show the website and gameclient being used to perform the task, with a voiceover from the illustrious JD Basher.

What I envisage is a webpage with a list of topics: "How do I buy a car", "How do I go scouting", etc.

What I'm seeking here are suggestions as to what the topics would be. Here's some that spring to mind:

* How do I go scouting?
* How do I hire a car?
* How do I buy a car?
* How do I do a courier mission?
* How do I join a league event?
* How do I repair my car?
* OK, so I'm in the game. What now?

Great idea.  Reading the Wiki isn't as enlightening as actually seeing it done.  For the very VERY newbie, I suggest breaking it up into small bites of info.

Driving School:
A step by step on entering Driving School and how to operate the basic controls on the car.  End with how to enter a race for fun and profit.

Deathracing:
Explains and demonstrates various methods of assigning gunners to weapons, selecting targets, etc.

The Arena:
Explains and demonstrates how to use terrain to advantage.

What can I do in town?

- Break down of the functions of the Tavern, Store, Market, Hospital, Training Center... what am I missing?

What is a Camp?

- Basic overview of player camps. Not really a new player feature, but it's good to explain what it is - especially if the videos also serve as promotional bits.

I'd start by looking at the sort of questions that appear in game and in the forums first.

Joining a squad, getting two entries in an event, etc. I'd especially look at things that veterans tend to take for granted but that are minor enough that they're easily missed unless you ask - like the F2 and F3 keys for instance.

Some folks like videos, some folks like to read. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to get some re-use out of the voice-over scripts. The raw V.O. scripts would make excellent research material, and those of us so inclined would use them as a basis for some good reference topics.

It's a three-day weekend for us Yankees, and writing some help files for y'all is as good a break as any from my RealJob™.

How events work and when they start. IE when everyone is in and read and if it doesn't start away, why (not everyone registered is in game).

Pro events: how can I arrange to be in them?

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

Lets help Sam and Olena out by trying to keep this as easy as possible without them or me having to do too much work to accomplish this GREAT idea! Put your suggestions under the heading your idea pertains to AFTER you copy and paste OR just reply to the most recent one. If you use the 'reply' try to leave the headings bold like they are, easier to read. Just delete all the "quote] [/quote" at the start and end of your reply and add your ideas.

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

* OK, so I'm in the game. What now?
**Money: how do I get me some of that stuff?

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

Have an idea for a MAIN heading? put it in! just leave room below with 2 ** for any additional sub-headings in that category. :D

Hopefully I explained it good enough. This way the scripts I'll be reading and the Tutorials may be able to be made faster. :rolleyes:

Keep the ideas coming in!
Thanks!

An overview of the client interface would be helpful, such as what is monitoring Town Gates, my scouting squad. etc... and also show typical usage of how to interact with both client and web. An example of this would be while you can register for a town event through the client there are times when you may want to register using the web.

In the game section

How to recruit and how it works. Also, how not to worry that you just lost the first 5 events you joined and got all your starting gang members killed because that's okay - it's part of the game (ie this game is somewhat hardcore so be prepared).
