Over the months, I've had a lot of new mappers adding me on MSN and even Myspace asking me for help and tips on some of the simplest things ever. Because a lot of the things can be fixed and done really easily and I'm tired of having to repeat myself over and over again, I've put together this new Tips index, which contains a lot more useful tips and help. I guarantee that most of the mappers on here already know everything that I've added to the Tips index, because they are simple things, as stated above. These new tips are mainly for the newer mappers, and now, whenever I get the pesky little kid who adds me on Myspace or MSN asking me about mapping, I'll just direct them to this topic. If you feel there are some tips that'd be good to add, do let me know and I'll put them in. To get these working in FinalSun, just drag and drop the file into your FinalSun folder.

This is more like a tutorial resource than a finished map, Aro.

FinalSun tips box is stupid, no one really ever reads them, and its not hard to work out the basics for FinalSun.

What FinalSun needs is a proper beginners mode, like if you hover over a tool or whatever, a popup comes up and explains what it does.

I Agree, but this will stop all these little people from asking me all the basics over some kind of chat client.

No it won't. It's good, but it won't.

lol I hate the tips box...it only delays me from getting to mapping. But...I'm curious on what kind of tips you have added...so I shall take a look. #Tongue

And ya know...I really haven't been bothered by too many little new mapper people on MSN or AIM (provided I'm really on AIM anymore). I wonder why I haven't gotten the same problem you are with tons of people asking me for help...am I really that scary to look at and talk to?

and yea...I agree with Dcoder...this won't stop anything. XD
BTW....didn't TitanMarkII or somebody else make a small extended tips thing before? I know I had one from Tumsun awhile back.

Seriously, I wasn't joking. I know it wont stop them in general, but everytime I get an annoying question thats really simple, I'll just direct them to this topic.

Ya, I made tips before, the funny thing with FS is that most of the formats are just renamed text files >_<

But I didn't really finish my update, I realized FS is just too buggy and not worth the time, I'm planning something else right now, nothing too interesting, though.
