New to EVE and looking for a bit more direction than just the tutorial? Here's a helpful guide.

https://www.thealphasguide.com

It's written especially with alpha clone players in mind, though any new player can make use of it.

Nice guide, short, sweet and to the point.

As I always say "Information is King and Communication is it's Queen".

Thanks for creating it and sharing it with the Eve Online Community.

Well, i've read a lot of guides for EVE and this one is right up there near the top.

It is well written in an unassuming, non patronising way, easy to understand and the nice page design and font makes it a pleasure to browse.

This community is awesome (and growing daily)! When will we hit 55K on TQ?

An excellent guide! Will remember to link it on Help chat while helping newbros :)

There is a video guide that should be a nice addition. Both guides cover different newbie topics, they should supplement each other nicely :

Maybe you can link it a the end (It's not mine! Found it while searching for guides).

Very good guide.

It should be mentioned that CCP did not pre-configure the various options for the game's user interface to be convenient. As players, the first thing we have to do is re-configure the market, the size, shape, and contents of the overview, the buttons on the toolbar, the sometimes-confusing keyboard shortcuts, and so on and so forth.

In other games, you start the game and the user interface is there, providing all the information in a convenient way. Spells add themselves to the quickbar, radar / map auto-zooms, everything is configured already. That's not the case with EVE.

Nice! That guide should be handy for a lot of people.

This is excellent, I already added it to my notepad for rookie chat linkage.

My choice of pronouns is based on your avatar. Even if I know what is behind the avatar.

I think the OP is spending a lot of time helping out and answering questions in Rookie Help in-game, and with thousands of people in the channel, that's a huge deal.

Thank you for that, too.

Speaking of Rookie Help, a few more FAQs have been added to the Rookie Chat FAQ.

I can tell you've really been hanging in rookie chat. Awesome list.

A guide to using scanner probes has also been added, for those that prefer written/pictorial guides over tutorial videos.

Very nice indeed, alpha players will need guides like this to overcome the inital overwhelming amount of information.

A very good introduction to the essentials of EVE, easy to read and navigate.

A quick read-through shows up a couple of small inaccuracies:

In Mission 3 from the industry career agent, the 1mn Civilian Afterburner blueprint (copy) is provided by the agent when the mission is accepted and is not available from the market (afaik).

When you leave a player corporation you go to your racial bloodline's default NPC corp, not your original starter NPC corp.

Apart from such small details this looks like a very useful comprehensive guide for newcomers - well done.

Yep, this was already fixed.

The guide doesn't actually say you'll go back to your original starter NPC corp - just "another NPC corp based on your race". :)

It most certainly does:
Quote:
You can leave a corp that you’ve joined by right-clicking on your own name and choosing Quit Corporation? > Confirm Quit Corporation. Doing so will place you back into your original starter NPC corp.
