The training assignments are the first assignments a new agent should do. They explain the first steps and provide the best source of NIC available in the first hour of a new agent.
They are divided in a basic line for all agents consisting of 5 assignments and two following lines for combat and industrial oriented agents. Each consists of a serie of 5 assignments rewardings a new bot at the end of the serie. It is permitted (and no failure) to do all 15 assignments as first steps in game, as even industrial player should have seen the first principles of PvE and Combat chars should also have some idea of how industrie is designed.
Basic Tutorial assignments
This is a serial of 5 assignments.
1) Move your bot around the terminal
2) Shoot some drohnes
3) Find Titan and mine a small amount
This is the most difficult assignment for most new players of all 15. You need to use directional scan to find the ore (following "->" until you find "X"). As you get only information about direction, not about range, move several hundred meter in 90° from the line the arrow showing, where the terrain allows to triangulate towards the target. As this assignment consists to 99% out of searching for ore and only 1% mining, you should remove all equipment from bot save 1 mining module and the geo scanner. If you can get a cheap [[lwf] buy and equip as well.
4) Do some transport (grab container)
5) Do some transport2 (deliver container)
