PLAYING WITH THE DOCKING STATION

Agent Help
Possibly the most useful function on the station, the Agent Help allows you to read up on exactly what a specific agent does. When you click on the Agent Help button, the hand will change to a hand with a question mark next to it, and you can click on any agent using the right hand mouse button. This will bring up a window that explains what the agent is and how to use it. Using Agent Help on a creature will bring up the Creature History dialogue which contains all sorts of information about that creature, including a photograph album, a history of important life events, and a name changing screen. You can toggle between Agent Help mode and normal mode by pressing F1.

These show key events that have occurred to your population of Norns, such as pregnancy, birth, and death. If you click on one of them, you will clear that event and zoom to the place where the event occurred, or the creature it occurred to.

Warning Icons
These warnings are used to inform you of important events between your world and others in the warp. For example, if a creature arrives in your world from somewhere else then a warning icon will appear here. Other warnings include things such as a friend coming online or a message arriving. Click on the icon to clear it and deal with the cause of the warning.
