This is your quick access guide to AQUARYOUNS World. We'll take some small steps on how to use the GISMO and build first departments on your claims to expand your settlement.
|When you start the game, you will first be presented with the Claim View. Have a look around the map using WASD or scroll around while holding the right mouse button. You can zoom using the mouse wheel. The camera may also be turned by using Q and E or by moving the mouse while holding down the mousewheel|
|Find your claims on the plateau. Claims that belong to you (currently) have a green floor. Claims with red flooring are occupied by other players. There maybe up to six players on one plateau.|
|Click on a claim to move the GISMO and open the interaction menu|
|Click on the -Button and choose a category of departments to build. After choosing a category the second layer of the Build-Menu will open, so you can choose an individual department to build.|
|The camera will then switch to the Build-View and you will be able to place the selected department on your claim. You may choose any place as long as the tiles aren't occupied. You can also turn your department using the mousewheel. Click the left mouse button to confirm the position and start the construction of the department. Be aware that only nine departments (including the Control Center) may be built on one claim.|
To expand your territory you will be able to occupy neutral claims.
|First find your Pioneer Ship on the map. Usually it should be circling around your first Control Center. Left click on the ship and select the Naval Symbol in the GISMO to open the Ships User Interface.|
|In the drop-down menu on the left side select “Deploy”. On the right side of the screen select the claim you want to take over.|
|Then just confirm your command by clicking OK and the Pioneer Ship will be on its way to the claim. This will be signaled by a green line between the ship and the claim.|
