Default Re: Updated the FAQ

Finally got out the latest revision to the newbie FAQ. Added about 7 pages of stuff sprinkled throughout.

INTRODUCING A NEW SECTION (17) FOR STRATEGY ARTICLES!

And special thanks to Stone Mill for opening up the new section.

CHECK IT OUT!

p.s. Apologies to Ruatha and Stone Mill for taking so long to get this out. Got hit with a cold (recovered) and had some real life priorities to take care of.

Slick.

Just wanted to give my thanks to Ruatha and Slick. I just recieved my copy of SEIV Gold 3 days ago and the newbie FAQ is just fabulous!

It saved me tremendous time looking up stuff in the forums and now I realize I am not as big a idiot as i originally thought as other people obviously had the same questions. Specifically on not being able to use transports as remote miners or sat layers.

Anyway once again my thanks for your hard work it is much appreciated.

Malagon

PS just re reading what I wrote I got the game 3 days ago and was looking at the faq on the forum here. Kinda err sounds like I got the faq with the game

The Newbie FAQ has been updated. Here's a synopsis of the major changes/additions:

- fixed many inaccuracies identified in the FAQ thread plus some others.
- added section 17.6 from Stone Mill's Strategy Articles.
- added a total of roughly 6 pages of new information throughout.
- added new (probationary) section 18 where I posted my Turn Checklist.

Please post any feedback to the FAQ in this thread if possible to keep the main FAQ as close to the top of the thread as possible. Thanks and enjoy!

Slick.

Slick, you learn something every day. For instance, I just realized you can get colds, even if you are in a paradise like Hawaii.

Nice work my friend, and to all contributors. Indeed, the FAQ has become quite a feature.

No need to thank me, really. I guess you can tell I don't mind at all writing the articles. And I'm never offended by a gentle reminder to get another one rolling.
