Since this large wave of rookie players will probably continue coming on the following years, I propose an idea: A map tutorial that helps the new players about how to play OC.
The veterans players/forum users will probably remember this idea, talked many times on groups/in game and showed here and on the classified archives, which, since is not public, i can´t show it.
The premise of this map would be simple: Teach the players about how to play cooperatively, as well as the "core" gameplay of OC:

- battery/plug puzzles
- moving an object that requires more than one person
- 2 person switches/buttons
- using each other to reach high places
- the crane puzzle
As well as other stuff, like how to use the shield and the cloak, and such.Ny wrote:
- ammo window
- points transfer
- medic callout (would make a good scene if the mapper damages the player and assigns the call out to get the npc to heal the player)
- warning callout
- player locator
- merchant buying system
- cash pickups
- how to use the healer (players and npcs)
But here is where it comes the problems: How to do it easy to understand? Until what level we should explain the gameplay? What stuff should be explained and what should be left to the player to be learn?
Please participate on the poll and respond to this thread, even if you think that you have an stupid idea. The quality of the players of a mod/game is of an extreme importance, and it can make the people come or leave.
