Sharoma Frontierverse Guides


"He who asks a question is a fool for a moment; He who doesn't ask is a fool forever."

You've arrived here because you're probably requiring some help with Frontier. Absolute beginners should probably read the game 'Basics' to get an idea of how the game works. 'Manoeuvres' will show you how to dock, land, fly and other basics once you've gained enough confidence to venture off the landing pad. If you've worked out how to play, but are stuck on Ross 154, ignorant of how to proceed in life, then try reading the 'Starting' off pages. If you want to find out more about the various craft available in Frontier, then check out the Ships page. Seasoned veterans might still find the Trading page handy for its lucrative trade routes. The Combat guide is pretty generalised; no precise physics-based lessons here. If you want that sort of thing I suggest you head on over to the Alliance Joint Navy academy.

Note: The 'Basics' and 'Manoeuvres' pages were originally all part of Frontierverse's Tutorial page, which existed from the site's inception in 1999 until the 2006 redesign. The page grew over the years and eventually became too unwieldy, so was broken up.


The YouTube age has rendered most of my writings obsolete. The video linked here comes courtesy of Dan and LemonTubeAmiga. The Links page contains more video tutorials on how to play Frontier.
