StaticVariable wrote:A newbie guide should include common keys, commands and macros. How to shoot, reload the gun, how to check ammo. How to drag people and objects around (took me a while to learn ctrl+obj is drag and q is drop). How should interactions be used. Some of the common commands that marines would typically do during a game.
Note, sometimes you have to pixel hunt to use objects faster, it would be nice to include the tip that after you alt-click an area, you can then use status window to select and interact with objects - doors, items etc and it saves time and frustration (for newbies).
There's a section already for macros on the wiki which can be found linked from the main page, in regards of everything else I'll try and work through it all over the course of the coming weeks. Channel keys are here: wiki/Space_Station_13_Guide#Communication
but as I've said I'll work through it.

In regards of this, it's something which will be added at some point to this page. wiki/Space_Station_13_Guide
albeit surgery is already accounted for in the Surgery link from the main page.
There should be an emergency procedures guide for all crew, what to do when there is a phoron leak, when there is hull breach and/or toxic gases. Where the nearest evacuation points are on the ship etc.
Not too sure on honestly what this page would be as it'd literally be the same for each case, head to the nearest safe area and await further orders, if no orders are given head to the escape pods and presume the worst.
StaticVariable wrote:It would be also nice to have a better guide for MT/engineers on equipment such as generators, air scrubbers, air pumps etc, how and when to use them and their generic purpose.
This is something being worked on currently but as there is a lack of wiki people updating pages it may be a while until I can get to those page as I'm trying to focus on new player stuff for now so we can get the ball rolling for them to have fun. tldr: I'll get to it at some point.
Also a guide on how to hack doors. Even though icly, MTs know how to do it, oocly it may take a while to figure out how to do it properly, also I had to look for it in other SS13 guides, but it would be nice to have things like that on CM wiki.
There is already a guide on hacking doors, it can be found here: wiki/Guide_to_Combat_Engineer#Hacking
I'll add it later tonight to the Mt job section so they know how to do it as well.
