From Rise: The Vieneo Province
This tutorial was made to get you started in the world of Rise. The opportunities below just describe a small portion of what is possible in the game universe.
In the Apartment
When you first get in-game, you will find yourself in an apartment overlooking the airport of the city. You can walk around in that apartment to get a better view. To save you time from trying: that door cannot be opened in order to get out of that apartment.
- Up and Down arrows to move forward and backward
- Left and Right arrows to turn
- "H" to clear your throat (get someone's attention)
To board your first vehicle (a car called the C-2 Dasher) you need to press the "1" key on your keyboard. You may have already noticed it says this in the top-right of your player interface. This part of the interface is called Intermedia and is your key to interfacing with different buildings/districts of the cities and player-built colonies. Intermedia is also used when you are doing fuel and cargo transfers.
Being a Taxi Driver
You should now be sat in your first vehicle outside of the Bradbury Apartments. The best way to start yourself off is to do the basic task of taxi driving, this will earn you only a little money whilst getting you used to the city layout, the controls and use of the player interface.
- Up and Down arrows to increase or decrease throttle
- Left and Right arrows to steer
- Spacebar to apply brakes
- "/" and "*" on the ten key pad to shift gears
- The C-2 has a Manual Transition. Park, Reverse, Neutral, 1st, 2nd, 3rd.
Park to 1st gear is * * *
Additional none movement related controls:
- "P" toggle to start or turn off the engine
- "L" toggle headlights
- "O" toggle overhead lamps
(it is suggested that you deactivate your overhead lamps (key: 'O'), as it is much easier to see outside the windshield without the glare the overhead lamps generate)
A joystick can also be used to control steering and throttle.
Once you drive a short distance away from your apartment your will enter the Transit District. When you enter the Transit District your Intermedia display will update with new options, now to start your first ride as a cab driver go for option 2] Curbside Taxi
The server will now tell you that you have a new fare; it will also tell you which building your passenger wants to go to and in what district this building is located. Now would be a good time to check out the map of Deois for the location of different buildings and get the coordinates for the building your passenger wants to go to.
Watch Those Curbs!
You may not see raised curbs, they look flat don’t they?! Well, they hurt if you hit them at speed so be careful! If your going to go off-road drive no faster that 40 kmph and you should be okay. If you did hit a curb too hard and you are wounded or your car is damaged just press "Shift+R" to repair yourself, and if you have managed to land upside down press "F3". If you die you lose any money and cargo you have on you at that time.
Banking Those Credits
I suggest the next step you take is taking your credits to the bank, that way you don't only earn interest on them, they are also safe and secure and not lost when you die. Load up the coordinates to the Fleet Bank of Deois into your Organizer and drive to it.
Once you arrive at the Fleet Bank building, select 1] Open Account from the Intermedia menu, now you have an account with Fleet Bank and you received a 50 CR bonus as a welcome gift. Now you can simply deposit your money into your account by going into 2] Teller Functions and then use 1] Deposit. The same menu can be used to withdraw money from your account or to transfer money to another player.
A World of Possibilities

Our established players will pretty much jump up and down to provide answers for you and give you a little direction in your in-game career, we would love nothing more than to have you up in the air with us and exploring the world, we enjoy this game and would love it if you do too.
