jts are helping new players ( basicly ONLY at night i thought They are dead, no they just play at night shift. During day being JTS is useless.

This will be off topic for a bit, but statement like that is completely untrue, as you was member of jts you should have better information about jts activity.
I can now try to explain to you that misinformation like this can only hurt game in general, but Ill try to be more brief. jts has eu players as well, though you cant expect that ppl will be every day in game, regarding rl obligations. We are showing game to eu time zone members, that are playing during "day", in same manner as it is shown to any other.
Also here on first post you have a list of players that joined jts as newcomers to server and moved after overcomig basics:
https://forum.fonline2.com/index.php?topic=17726.0
There are 9 eu based players of 15 listed. List was not updated for some time, but you get the point.
If you have any more question about jts itself feel free to ask me, current jts member/s or ex jts member/s, and actually you have one ex jts in your gang atm, so shouldnt be a problem to get more detailed info about that. And Im sure Richard will be glad to explain to you about jts structure if some things are still mystery for you. You can also check jts forum subsection.

I have very good informations about JTS organisation and activity, ATLEAST most recent idk how it worked in past. I AM NOT SPEAKING OF JTS BEING UNACTIVE, because this is obviously not true, BUT. JTS can be as active as NCR is, and NCR is most active during night.
I could give you list of players which i trained during my BoS days, you know it and i know it that ending training isn't staying in game. European players will not stay till 24 00 server time to start doing something. BUT THIS ISN"T MY MAIN OBJECTIVE, because it isn't main objective of JTS either. You atleast as supporting faction for Newbies are doing pretty good job and i have to admit it. But as i said your members are active mainly at night. And this is one of reason why some european players decided to just leave it. In case of asking and getting answer even discord can work.
If i didn't made it clear i will put it simple
+1 to JTS BUT they are not active during day due to how NCR works. That is my point.

Bonehead>Quickrecovery
TC rocket need BG and new players can't afford it, you are using either SG or grenades. Cheapest and most effective for new players.
This is problem of those 90%
New chars can easly go to any location and this problem, i don't even see problem here. You are entering encoutner, you are running out of encoutner, done.
Even if you are new, you should use brain. Noone will force them to use it.

One of my chars can no longer see Kenny tent.Maybe I reached tent maximum
or I did / said something with quest but it's GONE.Even if I chose some wrong
dialogue at some point it shouldn't be place for new players to put stuff if it
can be gone from WM.

Builds and char planner are unrelated (while being part of getting base process
as you need some order in that and I think it should be build/books/car/base/gear) so let me skip my suggested builds (where did I even say their specs and you are assuming Bg Burster or TC Rocket build is used for RT only or just for pvp
but I named those two because they might become needed in the long run ,
farming build that uses only nuka / cigs might be better example in that case ,
but you need build to get anything even that base quest suggested).

I applaud your effort to help new player but 90 % of those that just came into
game don't go forum.To avoid saying yes for sake of no how about allowing
Kenny to give link to wiki instead of saying go Junktown Scout and maybe some
outdorsman books so he can make it to Hub / Junktown and back in one piece.

And only working char planner is downloadable one , one coded on site which
was on google docs lately is no longer there so try searching forum to find it.

EDIT : I read your guide for new players just to be objective and working
link for Fonline 2 Char Planner is there but old non working one is on forum
last time I checked not long ago.I don't really want to argue with anyone but
about your recommended build for new players , while I like it very much I
would only change 1 thing and that is adding Quick Recovery as while you
can shoot 3 times and reload in one turn it won't mean much if you get KO
and NPCs actually give more KOs then players when you do the math.

Lets say someone used that build and now for some reason want to reroll
while he is at low level and cost is not out of his reach.SO HE GOES TENT.
AND HE REROLLS.Bye character , bye all.Reroll deletes all tents made by
that character.I heard 3 cases of this so far one being person rerolling in
Hub probably thinking that only he can use that book.

So why not add a vote on this.Maybe it's hard or impossible to implement
anyway so no use to bother.Peace.

As it wouldnt have much sense to yap only about how wrong glawdin is, Ill come to current topic itself.
It could be beneficial to new players to have option to add few more chars to kennys tent location. Like in 2238, where campfire could produce tent maps, in this case it would be up to 3 that could be "produced" after kenny is gone and with char that woke up in there. After reading map with other char, map would disappear and location would be visible. All of that can be explained to players in kennys dialogue.
To new guys deagle can be more worth than apa is to long term players, remember that, as everyone was noob at some point, as well as some players are around just to keep it casual and are not interested in becoming pvp ape champions of the sim.
It would (greatly) benefit to new players that are mainly making 2nd char before they can afford base. Regular tents should stay the way they are.

Maybe not a bad idea , if a faction has 3 players buying base for all locations
needed would be too much of a burden.Large factions will still have their
bases and not tents so I don't see any problem there unless its wipe start
which would actually help.As for Kenny tent you seem to forget it can disappear
which would lead to a word of hurt for a new player so i would support idea
as long as tent will stay forever in future regardless of kenny quest
.
You are able to affor 500k but can’t afford 100k for few bases. This isnt helping new players it is aiding stupidity. And sorry to dissapoint you but not all faction have whole map covered in bases. The truth js we relly mainly on tent and bases are just as stop for respawn car. Depend on situation etc. If you want to be first to event you are never using base. Out of nowhere Wipe Whining i will nkr answer and problem with kenny tent wouldnt be real problem. I know how it works So it is Ok.
 
Spoiler
Builds are bigger problem for new players.It's likely 1st ones won't be that good
and it would be really nice if some standard builds like RL for Tc or Big Gun
Burster etc were set as template so when player clicks register he could choose
among 2-3 variations given by default or experiment on his own risk.While
everyone has preference in this aspect they will more or less be 90 % same.
Leveling another character really takes time and reroll doesn't solve that issue in a good way.Also char planner that was online is no longer there but you can google it and find it after some time which would again be 0 help to new player.
this stuff in unrelated to main point of this topic. Builds you suggested are shit for begginers + you assume They will play RT, planer is avaible Idk What are you talking about.

Spoiler
Putting them on forum as sticky might work just as good with no need for
extra coding work
jts are helping new players ( basicly ONLY at night i thought They are dead, no they just play at night shift. During day being JTS is useless. I have written a guide so all basic stuff you mentioned are already here ( Yea builds Also) it is up to new player IF THEY WANT to search for build and tips. If no, They will die.

Spoiler
Kenny giving new player some books (maybe just those
most needed) would probably be ok too while at the topic (i don't think
wasteland will be less harsh this way because new player going solo will
still be killed by all human or npc).This would probably reduce profit of
selling some books to 0 so I can already see why nobody who posts would agree (hint : make new player aware of forum by putting link on register
screen).
you already answered Why this is shit idea. New players are aware of forum? You have fucking forum button on the main Page( from where tou know, you have just downloaded the game) + forum is a bit dead, discord is place where you can easly get help

Spoiler
Also it might be worth considering that if you make new players play sandbox
and allow legal duallogging you are basicly making 1st step to illegal duallogging
and teaching people how to do it so anything that prevents that would be ok.
Rules of duallog are simple and clear, i don’t see any reason to not ban them like we ban players for not following the game rules. I don’t get your point here

PROBLEM WITH THIS SOLUTION. New players often doesn't even check anything, they will pick all maps leading to base AND WILL GO STRAIGHT TO WH OR OTHER PLACE WHERE EVERYONE WILL KILL THEM. Because this is how new players behave.
I am up for idea with one ( i suggest kenny's tent ) base for newbies which would help them if they have multiple chars BUT i am totaly against changing tents.
We can even have special quest which would end in getting base mape https://wiki.fonline2.com/Old_Shack for example, This base would be already placed on world map in some shitty are for others players to not abuse this. Second idea.
Well. Great ideas. To implement it or not, or how to implement - it depends from admins. I just described my point  :)
