Hello everyone. I just finished the trial download, made my account and did the tutorial. Everything's all good so far. My autopilot constantly sends me in the wrong place than I tell him to and I get lost even if i sneeze...I suck with controls and every action takes at least 5 minutes. Oh well. That comes with time.
my two questions are:
1) It said I'm in server...some name. But I know there's only one universe. Am I assuming correctly that because I'm a trial I'm in a little kids playground and not in the real universe? Or am I in the same place with everyone and I just didn't run into anybody yet?
2) the important question: as I discovered, the game has a very large learning curve of fundamental commands. That's not a problem. But how should I spend my time in the trial to help me better decide if I upgrade or not? Should I start some professions? maybe join a corp? CAN I even join one as trial? or should i just fly around? I mean...how can i get a small experience in such a short period of time? I'm not talking about anything fancy, just the basics. What should i focus on to get an impression?
2.5) Uh...flyng. I figured out how to set autopilot, control speed and warp around, dock, loot, shoot at things etc. (i killed a drone. after it fired at me for 5 minutes. I'm sure you're all impressed.) But am i able to turn the nose of my ship and fly in whichever direction I want or do i just bounce from refference point to refference point?
I know stuff without a refference point is just empty space but can I fly around freely or do I have to anchor my destination to a location first?
finally: (noob question here) the trial told me to go for Military carreer but I didn't find the guy where they sent me. Can I get some help getting in touch with him? I should be in his space station i think but my skills in working the interface are terrible.
tyvm for your time.
