  • Tutorial Competition


    We’re in need of new tutorials for our new forum, and who more natural to write these then players themselves.

    Clear and concise writing is the number one priority. Try to keep every tutorial within the limit of 1500 words. Plus points for including pictures and/or tutorial videos (upload to YouTube for easy forum embedding, send link in mail)

    Edit: I realize some of you have problems keeping to the 1500 maximum in especially the large professions such as Hunting, Mining and Manufacturing. I'll accept two documents where the second is <Profession>:Advanced. if you feel you need to explain further. Keep the first document to 1500 words still though.

    Send your entries to the following e-mail before November 1st to partake in the competition. Mark the mail with the name of the competition and the Tutorial.
    Example: Tutorial Competition: Beauty System. Remember to sign the mail with your full in-game name and forum name.


    For every chosen guide, the writer will be handed 1 (one) piece of Community Recognition Armor and a 6 (six) month Modified Forum Membership as thanks for their hard work.

    Guides needed:

    • Interface and Controls
    • Hunting
    • Mining
    • Manufacturing
    • Understanding the Economy (markup, economy of professions etc.)
    • Skills and Professions – How does it work?
    • Trading
    • MindForce
    • Beauty System
    • Customization (Coloring and Texturing)
    • Land Management

      Hi Hanne! As you know from over three years www.argentropia.com.ar makes a great effort to make tutorials and guides about our universe available to the Spanish speaking community. Translations of planetcalypsoforum posts (with an appropriate link to the original post), articles based on information from this forum and/or entropiawiki.com (with appropriate references to "source") or its own editing tutorials based on our own experience. With our modest 3000 + views per month we are the most visited websites in Spanish and has consulted and helped to make it easier to start from many members of the community. Like ours there are surely other sites in different languages, including forums, which I think we all deserve some kind of support or recognition from planetcalypsoforum.com and even FPC. Finally we all have the same goal: make easier the lives of the colonist of Calypso!

      perhaps a guide on scamming? i.e. how to avoid yourself getting scammed (help yourself because no one else isn't going to)

      Also a guide on societies?

      http://nirfu.gluonsoft.se/guides.htm Not much has changed. But I prefer to have my guides on my own site with my own adds close to it. I think that in the long term should pay more than the proposed payment.

      Can I just send a link to an existing forum thread rather than re-writing the whole thing in an e-mail?
