€€€ Scoping Guide € Post 3.04 €€€

Star Find revolves around its scopers. Without scopers, there are no worlds to hunt in the chat during a wave. It is an essential part of Star Find and one that we ask all miners work to do at some point in our chat. This comprehensive guide was written to make it clear how scoping is accomplished and how it helps us.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If you have a telescope in your player owned house, you can help us by scoping. Scoping is the process of checking each members world ahead of a wave to help compile a list of the worlds and locations for the chat members to search. To scope first you ask the lister for a block, a list of worlds for you to scope. Once you have your assigned block go to your house and to the first world. Check your telescope and write down the area the star will land in as well as the world you are in. We do not need the ETA in your report. Once you have done this, move on to the next world in your block.

You must then be ready to compile a report for the lister. Group all of each area together and join the Star Listing friend chat. When the lister instructs you to begin your report, present your findings.

Your report to the lister should look like this with all 11 or 12 of your worlds included:

asg 2 4 6
mist 3 5 7
(etc.)

Once you have finished your report, say “end” so that the lister knows you are finished. Wait for lister to acknowledge you in case of questions and to make sure they received your report. Once the lister has thanked you, you may return to Star Find. Scopers are not allowed to remain in Star Listing once their report has been given.

Thank you for assisting Star Find by scoping!

Hint: if you go to the house icon on game you can click to make all the doors in your house stay open. This can be very convenient when scoping!

€€€ Lister’s Guide € Post 3.05 €€€

Listing is the process of recording the worlds obtained by the assigned scopers and then presenting a list of all those worlds and regions where the stars will land to the main chat.


• The listing process usually begins as soon as the previous wave finishes (ETA 60-80 minutes).

• ''Star Listing'' is the friends chat where all the scopers will report to the lister the blocks assigned to them.

• The lister is the coordinator of the listing process and, prior to starting the process, should:
… Know each of the 9 regions.
… Know how to scope.
… Let the chat know that you want to list next wave.
… Find a recruiter (the lister can do this if necessary).
… Make sure you have enough time to list (at least 1 hour, 30 minutes) and be online with private chat ON.
… Try to start listing one hour before ETA (estimated time of arrival).

Assigning blocks is a key role for the lister. In order to do this effectively, you must a) know the blocks, and b) have some way of knowing who is scoping which block. To do this, write down the following blocks and note which scoper is assigned to it.
Block 1 • 1-16 (11 worlds)
Block 2 • 18-31 (11)
Block 3 • 32-48 (11)
Block 4 • 49-62 (11)
Block 5 • 63-73 (11)
Block 6 • 74-87 (11)
Block 7 • 88-105 (12)
Block 8 • 114-140 (12)

As each scoper reports, collect the list of worlds and regions like this:

Asg: 117 139....
Wild: 92 96...
(etc.)

Once you have recorded their block, make a mark next to their name (where you assigned blocks) denoting that they have finished. Once all data is collected, present the list. Keeping track of unreported is optional. If you chose not to track, let the chat know after presenting.

Remember to thank all the scopers at the end of the list.

But most important: HAVE FUN. Thank you for listing!


Thank you Reina133 for this guide!

€€€ Training a New Lister • Checklist I € Post 3.06 €€€

Do not try to train a lister under a rush. If the ETA is under 60 minutes, do not train a lister.

It is the trainer's responsibility to assist the lister in any way. As a trainer, you should back the lister up; take down the entire list yourself so that you are ready to jump in and assist if needed. Assume that you will end up giving the entire list yourself in case the lister has to leave suddenly or makes mistakes - they will.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Introduction to Listing:

All of the following should be discussed with listers prior to recruiting scopers.
• Commitment - make sure the lister has at least an hour and a half (just to be certain). Discuss how a lister must commit themselves to the process and can't distract themselves with anything that takes a lot of attention otherwise.
• Regions - make sure the lister knows all nine regions; explain if necessary.
• Blocks - make sure the lister knows or is given the scoping blocks; explain if necessary.
• Organization - make sure the lister knows to write down scopers with their block assignments. Make sure they know that they need to write down the scopers' reports. Ask them to organize the reports by region. This can be done on paper or on a document.
• Recruiter - explain the importance of a recruiter in finding scopers and make sure that they a) know who is recruiting, and b) have them added to their friends list. Make sure they communicate constantly throughout the process.

Continued in the following post.

€€€ Training a New Lister • Checklist II € Post 3.07 €€€

While Handing Out Blocks:

• Scoping - explain how scoping works and how the list will be better if more people scope. If there are no volunteers and you find some time, you might volunteer yourself to make sure that the list isn't cancelled.
• Thanking Scopers - make sure that the lister knows to thank the scopers when they take a block and after they report.
• Communication - reiterate the need for communication with the recruiter so that they know how much more help is needed.
NOTE: Make sure that no blocks are given out more than once.

Receiving Reports:

• Thank Scopers - make sure that the lister knows that they should thank scopers after they report as well.
• Correctness - make sure that the *lister* (not the trainer) can check that all worlds in a block are recorded and none are left off by accident.
• Organization - after the first block is returned, it may be a good idea to ask the lister to read off the block to you in the way that they will list.
• Mark Off Scopers - make sure the lister knows which blocks have been reported.
NOTE: While still supervising the lister, let them take some reports on their own.

Before Listing:

• Unreported Lists - explain the unreported lists and make sure they know it's voluntary. If they don't wish to track it, explain it anyway in case they do in the future.
• List Format - remind them to thank their recruiter and scopers before listing and announce their intentions in regards to tracking. Ask them to announce themselves when entering the chat. Make sure they know to say "end" when they are finished.
• Thank Them - listing is not easy. Commend them and congratulate them and send them off to Star Find.
NOTE: If the lister hits a snag, help them via private message. Do not take over unless it is absolutely necessary (i.e the lister black screens or logs out).

€€€ Construction Guide I € Post 3.08 €€€

In order to contribute fully in Star Find, a player must be at least level 44 Construction. The player must then build a telescope in their player-owned house to scope and scout for stars. This comprehensive guide is an outline of the quickest and most efficient ways to get 44 construction.

NOTE: This guide was written prior to the addition of the God Statues D&D to the game. God Statues can help you level the skill much faster. If you are working from level 1 to level 44, wait until you reach at least level 33 before doing God Statues, then return to the rest of the guide with oak larders to level 44.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

How to get started:

1.) If you don't have a P.O.H. already, go to the estate agent in Varrock and get one for 1000 gold. You will start out in Taverley. Note: Players who created a P.O.H. prior to the Burthorpe/Taverley update will have a house located in Rimmington.
• Needed: 1000 gold

2.) If you already have a P.O.H but don't have a parlor, add one for 1000 gold. You will do all your work from levels 1-33 in this room.
• Needed: 1000 gold

3.) From levels 1-3 you will need to build three “crude wooden chairs” in your parlor. There are 3 hotspots – or furniture spots – in the parlor for chairs, and each chair will give you 66xp, resulting in 198 xp and level 3 Construction.
• Needed: 6 planks, 2 nails/chair

NOTES:
• Always bring lots of extra nails; some get bent and become unusable.
• If you cut your own logs: cut logs from regular trees. Go to the sawmill. For 100gp/log, make a plank, and then add the cost of the nails (sold here).
• There are planks lying on the ground in various places free: near the Barbarian Outpost, on the north shore of Entrana, and a couple of spots in the Wilderness.

€€€ Construction Guide II € Post 3.09 €€€

4.) From levels 3-33, you will build clay fireplaces.
• Go to the clay mining spot near your P.O.H. with an empty inventory. You don't even need a pickaxe since you have a bronze one on your toolbelt. If you want, have some house teleport tablets in one slot, but not necessary. Leave 27 of the 28 slots empty, regardless.
• Clay fireplace takes 3 soft clay, so with 27 free slots, you can build 9 fireplaces per inventory.
• Run to the well you already pinpointed, and use the clay on the well. This will make soft clay.
• Go into your P.O.H. and build a fireplace. This will use 3 clay.
• Remove the fireplace and rebuild, repeat until your inventory is empty. Repeat until you reach level 33.
• XP per fireplace: 30; xp per inventory: 270.

NOTES:
• If you wish to buy your own soft clay, you will need 1,806 soft clay.

5.) You can continue building clay fireplaces to level 40 (or 44) if you wish, but most people switch to oak larders in the kitchen at level 33. If you wish to buy your own planks, you will need to build 67 larders, requiring 536 planks. To build oak larders, build a kitchen for 5000 gold. Build oak larders until you reach level 43. If you have a crystal saw (from Eyes of Glouphrie quest), you can stop at level 40.

If you wish to cut your own logs and make your own planks:
• Cut oak logs and take to the sawmill to have turned into planks. No nails needed, sawmill charges 250 gold for one oak plank.
• Total cost/larder: 2000gp.

NOTES:
• There are several oak trees right next to the sawmill. Take your hatchet only, go to the sawmill, cut your logs, and turn them into planks.
• You can build 3 larders per inventory (8 planks per larder), then bank
and return. Experience per inventory: 1,440

€€€ Construction Guide III € Post 3.10 €€€

6.) Add a study (50,000gp). This study cannot be underground; if you build it underground, it will have to be rebuilt in order to scope. Telescopes cannot function if they are against another wall, so the room should not be built adjacent to a wall either. We recommend building the study adjacent to your portal garden with the telescope facing the portal. This not only assures that your telescope will be operable but also makes it very quick and easily accessible when scoping.

7.) An oak telescope requires 44 construction (with boosts; see below), 2 oak planks, and 2 pieces of molten glass. Glass can be made from sand and soda ash, which can be made by cooking seaweed. Once you have built your telescope, you are ready to become a full contributor in Star Find.

For players that are at level 43 Construction:

8.) Add the best shelves you can to your kitchen. At level 40, this is Oak
Shelves 1. Tea made from this shelf gives you a +1 construction boost.

9.) Build 1 larder in the kitchen. Take a kettle, a teapot, and a cup from the shelves, and tea from the larder. Fill the kettle on a sink, heat it on your stove (you can build both of these at this level). Put the tea in the teapot, add the hot water, and pour a cup of tea. Upon drinking the tea, you get a 1 level boost. There are 4 cups of tea per pot; only one cup can serve as a boost at one time. We recommend drinking the tea when you enter your study so that the boost doesn’t fade before you’ve built your telescope.

For players that are at level 40 Construction:

If you have completed the Eyes of Glouphrie quest and have the crystal saw, use the saw plus the tea to build a basic telescope in your study. The saw gives you an invisible 3 level boost in construction and stacks with the tea.


Thank you Silvery Aura for this guide!
