well the subject tells it all im new and help...i just started an am applying for a faction that my friend is in but wat should i do to get started and how do u talk to the tutorial guys. wat should i do were should i go , get...etc.and also are the graphics or chat going to get any better???sry if this is the wrong place to do this. right now i have 13,992 credits.
The best way to get started is as you have done, apply and join a faction they will assign you a ship, learn you how things work. With tutorial guys I guess you mean NPCs at the starting cities? Should be to just walk up to themand hail them. Am not 100% sure though since I haven´t tried them myself.
While you are waiting on being accepted into your group I suggest you just walk around some in the cities to get used to the interface.
don´t know what you mean wth graphics? you mean the whole combine graphical layout or specific images? Anyhow, there is a artteam working on creating new images for alot of different things so in a way the graphics will become better.
about the chat, are you using the java client that can be found through the site? if so I recommend that you download the free ic client at www.mirc.com which is much better.
