First error: Hit Play on Launcher
C:’Windows/system32\nvspcap64.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.
Usually not a fan of opening cinematic scenes, but the start video with Dave G was well done.
First I maxxed Video options. I’m using a GTX 275, the lowest required graphics card. Want to see what max graphics does on lowest card. Playing in Fullscreen Window mode at 1900×1138 (1200).
Also, selected View Stranger Claims.
Character – xars
Couldn’t get White hair color – I like older looking players, since I’m an older guy. Couldn’t change height or weight.
Ata starting point with other characters.
Hold Left mouse and can move camera, character keeps pposition. Hold Right mouse and can move camera with toon rotating.
Movement with WASD, but no strafing with QE.
Chat box on lower left, llike normal.
Viewing Stranger claims shows lots of boxes and lines at starting point.

Map – Can see other claims (with video settings).
Map – L ooks like some people have made claims that go partially off the map.
Controls – Cant remap keyboard controls.
Camera – Can’t scroll out away from character.
Compass – no compass except on Map
Map is 3D – Don’t notice until you Right click mouse and move.
Claims – Looks like there are lots of large claims reseverd by the system. These don’t seem to interfere with player’s making claims.
Map scroll out lets you see the 3D depth of the world. Very cool.
First claim – NE mountain top. Had some “air” under the edges of my claim so I could get plenty of vertical building space.
Claim – cost is zero.
When dragging an item, you frequently get a white box instead of the icon. Small bug.
Moving Inventory window, doesn’t change placement permanently.
Sliding down a mountain is very cool.
Resource inventory up to 7643. Now 11,198. Up to 12,863. Up to 20,202. Up to 34,027.
No list of Keyboard controls.
Newbie Tip: When gathering resources, you can see the count, but not your carry limit. Also, you have no idea how much stuff you need to make an item. A popup tip would be neat that says, “you should have enough to make a crafting table”; you should have enough to build a small tower; you should have enough to build a small keep; you should have enough to build a large castle..
My Server is Liberation and my Continents is Esker??? (I didn’t know this.)
After gathering, began crafting to increase pick.
First upgrade is Bronze Pick. My Founder’s Axe can do Tin, Tourmaline.
Next upgrade is Iron Pick. This is my first crafting item.
Game crashed while trying to change to Gorge Tier 2 island.
