    Ok I have FINALLY managed to load the game without it crashing (first time since chicken room) and due to the low specs of my system I am not even going to TRY to play multiplayer until I get a new video card so I need some help

    At this stage I am not really interested in wandering aimlessly or exploring, I will get to that latter as I have a list of things I want to test straight up first

    I want to find a town level lot SOMEWHERE and get my pledge rewards so I can see what I have ect. Where should I go and how do I get there, currently stuck in the swamp, if there is a really quick "cheat" way to get to a town with free lots I would like to use it

    Well, I assume you mean "available" and not "free".... If all you want to do is find an open lot, then there are a lot of village lots available in both Hidden Vale and Novia...
    Do you have a preference there?

    Avalaible yes (I have a rent free deed so it should be free too), really want town because I want to go through the various houses I have

    And as to where? I don't care, just somewhere I can get to so I can start experimenting. As I said I have only JUST started playing and currently stuck in a swamp, I have no idea where to go or how to get there but I don't want to spend hrs fighting my way through right now. Will get to playing with combat latter

    There are sure to be a few town sized lots available in some of the less centrally located villages. Village lots are much more plentiful, so you would be able to find one quite easily by just talking to the town crier in a few of the villages near where you are. If I were you I would just claim a village lot until you find a town one. It is not possible to give you directions anywhere without knowing where you are. There are several swamps you could be at. If you are in Novia, head south to reach Ardoris on the southern coast. To the west of Ardoris on the overland map you will see a boat. Double-clicking the boat will take you to the Hidden Vale.

    I was sort of hoping there was a zoom "cheat" to get to a place rather than a person.

    Didn't manage to find Ardoris yet, walked out of soldris and got lost straight away :p

    There's about five available town lots in Corcoast, it's a small village on the coast next to Soltown.

    If you don't have it displayed I believe the key to display the compass is C. That will at least get you the direction you're facing.

    Currently you can zone to another player or zone to a lot that you have claimed. If you get lost in an area, typing /stuck will generally transport you to the starting point of that area, hence near an exit.

    What are your computer specs? The game has always been an easy load for me, on my tower and even on my laptop, so just wondering what your specs are, it may not simply be the video card. What's good about SOTA is it'll run on many year old equipment as opposed to games like Star Citizen that'll need top of the line stuff to realistically use in multiplayer.

    By the way, there is an option in the options menu to display location names in English on the overland map.

    Is it? I think you might be right. Point is.. there's a compass and a key that turns it on and off. :) And since it's off by default I believe I thought I'd mention it. :)

    The SotA Wiki has a big beautiful map of Novia that will help you find your way around in the dark (sort of).....
