Guide Sandbox

From FOnline: Reloaded Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page is a list of steps that will be part of a new comprehensive startup guide. For now, use this as an Express Version of the full guide. It should work pretty well, down to "STOP".

This guide's purpose is to enhance a new player's startup experience, first by providing a structured route through quests, including the cleverly-written main story. You start a character planned for survival and exploration. He will be strong soon, but we're all weak when we begin, so the early priority is staying alive as you get stronger. You start in the Hub area, leveling up on easy tasks and a low risk of Death. Once you're a little stronger, you go north and abroad. You return with a car and use it to get more XP, more Levels, more Perks, and more Caps. You'll buy Skill Books, establish a base, and set up a network of private locations all over the map. You'll recruit some NPC followers, and explore tougher quests. Later, you'll power-level additional characters, using a leveling build. They'll go straight to your base, grab a pile of gear and a vehicle, all prepared in advance by your first character. Then Reroll them into combat specialists once they hit a target level.

PROJECT STATUS: As of Jan 2021, 25 characters have stepped through these steps, starting at level 1, in order to develop, test, and improve this guide. This is a time-consuming effort to provide the best guide possible. Players are invited to use this guide and provide feedback on the forum

Description, Advice, Config Stuff

  • Go to forum, find and get FallCraftPlus.zip, set that up, close/re-launch client
  • Set combat mode to Real-Time (trust me) by using this in-game command: ~combatmode rt
  • Your game experience will vary slightly, so the XP and Caps targets shown here will not always match exactly what you have in-game. It will be close, but it will not match exactly.

The First Character Build

This is a versatile survival expert. He is a strong fist-fighter who also uses Combat Shotguns and all other Small Guns weaponry.

Tags: Small Guns, Close Combat, Speech

This is the build for this guide. With it, you will have the flexibility of 2 fighting skills: Small Guns and Close Combat. You'll use Combat Shotguns, pistols, and SMGs, but you'll become a skilled fist-fighter too, doing a lot of knockdowns while enemies will often miss. With some levels, recruit NPC companions and build a combat support team to follow you around and back you up in fights. This is a combat-capable lead character, for diving into most of the quests, and getting set up for your expansion, which will include additional characters (combat specialists, etc).

This adventure begins here...
  • Register, login, and run out of the cave. When prompted about a settlement, choose to head out into the open wasteland
  • Outside the cave, get 2 quests from the Startled Caravan Driver (all dialogue option 1 until done), and exit to map
  • Press your ENTER key to open the chat bar, and type this command to check your Party Points: ~pp
  • Press ENTER again to close the chat bar, then press "P" twice to open your Pip-Boy and view important info, including your quests:
