This tutorial is meant to guide you through the first steps in AD2460, and help you get to know the interface. It may seem like a lot at first, but once you get to know how it works, you will find that you navigate around the game with greater ease and speed. Take your time in the beginning. Look around. Initially there is nothing you can do that will cause any harm to your homeworld or your game progression.

The help-commander will be escorting you through a lot of the inital tasks in the game. If you follow her lead, you can't go wrong, and you will be well on your way to proper participation in AD2460. By following the advice of the help-commander, you will become familiar with the game interface, understand how to progress in the game, explore the galaxy, and start mining some of the planets in your local cluster of systems.

The help-commander will also introduce you to the single player mission system in AD2460, and how you can use this to gain resources, combat units and experience points in order to level up. This in turn provides further possiblities and options to explore.

There are also a number of smaller buttons with a question mark on them around the interface. These have valuable information about specific settings, tell you what certain stats mean, and include some good information about what certain terms mean in AD2460. They are also very good sources of detailed info about specific areas and functions within AD2460. We encourage you to click these and read the help-text, even if you think you know how it works. You may learn something you didn't already know.
