Ok this is soooo stupid and discouraging....you have to wait 15 mins!!!! just to move to the next tile? It takes me 5 hours and 15 minutes to get to a vehicle rental!!?? If everything in this game takes like forever.....no wonder there are online 2988 active members. For the 2 days I have checked this website I only see people leave....is the speed of the game the reason why? How can I speed things up so I can actually do something? I know a webbrowser game isn't supposed to be speedy, but waiting over 5 hours just to walk to a store across the sqaure is a bit much.
Travel will never be immediate, and while ships and vehicles are a bit faster than walking by foot, it is this way for a reason, so when combat is available you will not be killed in your sleep without having time to react. If you haven't got the patience for it, this may not be the game for you.
Well I do, but 5 hours for one simple walk from A to B is a bit much. But is this a bug or can I do something about this myself: when I approach a store and exit my speeder, enter the store, and when I exit the store, I end up 30 mins away from where I entered! Isn't that a bit unlogical? Is there some way to exit right at the spot where I entered and left my bike? Would save me 30min doing nothing.
Its the first thing every new player complains about, and it does take some getting used to. Just hang in there. By the time you get the hang of this game, join a faction, and make some friends, travel will be nothing more than a minor inconvenience.
Ah ok. Ehm I yet have another question, might as well ask it here instead of flooding the message board:
I have applied to join a faction. It says I will recieve a mail with more detailed info. Now this mail, will it be send to some inbox in this game or to the inbox of the adress I used to create this account?
And besides from waiting for my application to be processed, is there anything I can do in this newbie city? I mean ways to make money....do an assignment for someone?
Best way is always the faction, but you could donate to the combine and purchase a ship and sell it, but I think its best to keep clicking the support links over time you can get a free ship and once in a faction they usually assign a ship for you.
If you applied for the faction via the Combine interface they likely refer to your Darkness inbox. If you used a form on their website and entered an e-mail address, it'd be sent to that e-mail. You should have an e-mail address linked to your account which you can check regularly, though; you can set a preferred e-mail address in your account settings (it can be free).
You always leave a building at the same spot, top left corner of it's bordering tiles, so just make sure you always enter from there unless it's a building you can dock in and undock from, which most won't be.
Travel is slow, thats the way this game is. Play for a bit, if you don't like it then this just isn't the game for you. There are plenty of different games that move faster.
Also if that is the case then... and I don't mean to diss the game but doesn't that mean that whenever you get on, either you have a LOT of time on your hands... or you will only get on to make a movement from one place to the next and then get off if you have to be gone in 10 to 20 min to do something?
