After a little starmap hokey pokey, jiggery pokery mainly caused by a noob being exposed to such a vast and detailed map of star systems that the my first destination was reduced to a meaningless random stab in the dark, I backtracked to an earlier star system. Here I too the next ‘opportunity’: Engines of Creation. So first mine some ore from an asteroid, now EASY, return to a starbase, unload and instead of selling, reprocess…OK! DONE. Now what… Blueprint…OMG I have no idea of which if any blueprint I should get and even if I can afford it! Rookie chat channel consulted and the fact I am doing the tutorial is poo pooed so I decide to take a mission…
OK here we go on another learning curve…whee! First find an agent, none in system, OK use find agent tool and it tells me which system to go to, I do this manually but realize I could have clicked on tool and used link there to set destination to star system with the agent. Well I get there, I get to the station and I have a chat with the agent, MISSION accepted 🙂
This time I use the internal destination link to set destination. Undock and autopilot there.
After floating about for a while expecting hostiles to trickle in I realize I must activate the jump for the ‘encounter’ to start. I was quickly outnumbered and my rookie ship outgunned! My first ever EVE Online DEATH occurred…
Death was quick and I got to enjoy my first flight in a pod!
And my first ever free replacement rookie ship…sans stabilizers!
Another Opportunity done though, great a tutorial that plans to make you FAIL!
Only 5 and a half to go….
