Are we missing a guide you wish was here?

See a guide we have that needs updated or is missing info?

Leave a post here on what you want to see and what needs updated! If you have the info, please list it as well!

We look forward to being your number 1 Anarchy Online site for a long time to come! Helps catch up ;)

Engineer Guide MKIII parts 1-3. It's a massive mess. The original guide was fantastic. Over the years new things got tacked onto it. That makes sense. That's also when lots of little problems crept in.

I'm not so sure fixing it is the answer - because doing so will require many dozens of hours of volunteer time. Lets Play instructional videos are popular and probably easier to produce than a text based technical journal.

Simply identifying all the little problems inherent in the old guide may take hours of work.

Are "Let's Play" videos as a guide really more useful?

To be honest, if I have to look up something on a game and all I find is videos, and then you have to find that part in the video and *hope* it actually is explained/shown in a way one can understand it and without some annoying narration over it... I rather read something.
But maybe I'm getting too old :roll:

Lets play videos are useful, but they really can't replace a text based instruction manual. But as I said in the above post - writing a comprehensive technical guide is a heck of a lot of work. You guys have done multiple hundreds of hours of work on some very useful guides. That's why I love this website. Thanks to all of you for volunteering your time.
