I fully expect this to not be seen by the folks who would benefit from it, but here goes anyways. Happy to keep trying.
A short preface — I don't care about earning follows, subs, or any of the sort. I enjoy helping and teaching people. I'm active in the new player discussions here regularly and I dedicate many hours each week to helping folks learn.
This evening, and every Tuesday and Sunday for the foreseeable future I am holding map learning sessions live on twitch for about an hour. Tonight, at 6pm PST, I will be working on Customs (about 5 hours from the time of this post). This is probably the most important map for new players to learn.
– The only content I make on twitch right now is for this. I'm not your "typical" creator there.
If you're someone that is intimidated by learning the maps, find the game overly difficult, or simply don't know where to start — this project is made for you.
If you're interested, here are a few points about what this content provides.
– A beginner-friendly progression through the map. I start at one major extract and head across the map to the other. In the case of Customs, it's from ZB-1011 to Crossroads.
– I've made an animated minimap that plays along side the footage and shows where I am in real time.
– After the first run through I do the same route backwards to further reinforce the learning.
These guides are meant to be followed along while in an offline raid. The biggest challenge will be getting to the starting locations for new players though with one of the many maps and some patience I believe anyone can do it.
So far I've made 2 guides for Interchange and plan to do the rest of the maps. If you, or someone you know would like this, I'd love for you to share it.
I know many folks dislike self promotion here, and I really don't care to plaster my info everywhere. If even 1 person would like, I'll happily share the necessary links in the comments or I am relatively positive you could find it if you dig through my comment history.
A final note — I do know that Customs is changing and I'll redo the work here in order to adapt to those changes when they happen
Thanks for your time.
