After i got to Relto, i went to Gahrenseen and found my KI. I hear to join neighborhoods and see other people, i need to use "Nexus", but what is it, and where can i find it?

It seems like common knowledge around any posts i've read, and even read a post saying the nexus in UU (or would it be in D'malas Shard specifically?) is much bigger than in single player.

However I've played some of the game in single player (finished Kadish Tolesa, did some of Teledahn, and a good part of Eder Kemo/Gira, and i haven't seen anything to which i would acknoledge as "Nexus". So I don't know if this is something very obvious that I have seen and used but am not connecting the function with its name, or if i'm just missing something important on the game.

To find the Nexus, just go to your Relto and then to your hood. Once in your hood, walk over the bridge to the book room. The central pedastal there is the Nexus link. Once in Nexus you can choose the City, any public neighbourhood, your Private ages that you have retrieved the books for from your pillars. Actually, that book in Gahreesen that was beside the KI dispenser is also a link to the Nexus http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Just to add to this, there are Nexus link books in each age. When you picked up your KI in Gahreesen, there was a pedestal to your left with a linking book on it. This was the book to the Nexus. There are five in the city. Dave

At some point a book is put on your Relto bookshelf - it's the one with the gear - that is the nexus book. Also, you want to put your KI hand into each opening next to a linking book which will make a link in the nexus to that place.

Yes, the first time you use the Nexus is when that book is placed on your bookshelf. It's useful indeed! Yes, one of the first things I do is run around the city and get all the link-in spots. There are 5 of them in total. I tend to use the "Concert Hall" linkin spot since that one isn't so popular and usually has less lag with it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif That's a matter of personal perference.

Thanks for clearing things up.

I still have a few questions (probably more than when I started, but I suppose that's to be expected), but for now I'll just ask a couple of them, relating still to Nexus:

Do Nexus books exist in single player games/installations too? If they do, what is their purpose?

In the Nexus room/age, under "city locations", there are a few options. Right now i have three (Ferry Terminal, Palace Alcove, Great Zero Observation), maybe there will be more, but when it is said that there are 5 nexus books in the city, does that mean the 5 books will be scattered throughout those locations, or each location have 5 books in them?

In the single-player version, the To D'ni expansion pack contains much of the content of the Prologue to Uru Live that met its untimely end in February 2004. In To D'ni, you can get to one neighborhood (Bevin) from your Relto, and from this hood to the Nexus; its use is similar to, but more limited than in Until Uru.
There are 5 locations in Ae'gura (the D'ni city) with one Nexus book each.

I believe you can get nine links on your Nexus screen in the single-player game.

You start with the Ferry Terminal link and the Great Zero Observation link.

Yes, there are five Nexus terminals in Ae'Gura (including the Ferry Terminal, which you had from the beginning). There is one in Bevin. And another in a place... similar... to Bevin. (This place is NOT available online in UU.)

Then the final link will appear after you accomplish one of the tasks mentioned in the GZ Observation chamber.

In To D'ni (the single-player expansion pack), the Nexus screen initially contains only a link to the Ferry Terminal. There is no link to Great Zero Observation - you have to gain access to that another way, after which you'll have a link to it in the Ae'gura book in your Relto.
The other links on the Nexus screen are as described by Reverend Vader, so you end up with 8 (not 9) links.

Oops! You're right!

Can't keep all these different versions of Uru straight!

GZ observation is accessed by a linking stone in the single-player game, not a link in the Nexus.

Question from nanouk,

Since we do not have access to Keever and because the Great Reezuro is already activated, are we suppose to see the coordinates on our KI in Until Uru ?

And does it mean we have no access to the last 4 GZMs ?

The CGZM ("yellow") marker missions are different in PotS and Until Uru. In PotS, there are four missions total, one for each component of the KIPS system (elevation, distance, and angle), and one to turn the thing on, after which the machine is completely calibrated and coordinates function completely in Ae'Gura and the 'hoods. There is also only one marker per mission, for simplicity's sake.

In Until Uru, the CGZM missions are completely different, and require that you complete all 14 different missions (with as many as 25 markers per mission) before your KI is properly configured to display GZ coordinates. If you have a properly-configured KI, you will see GZ coordinates when looking at the Big KI (fullscreen) interface and when looking at City locations or neighborhoods in the Nexus. However, the Great Zero is still not completely calibrated in Until Uru, and will likely remain that way regardless of how many people complete all 14 missions. Odds are, calibrating it fully will be an early task in Live when it returns this fall.

Thank you Alahmnat for the feedback.

But because I do not follow completly your instructions, my next questions will be,

1- Where and how do we get those extra CGZM missions you are talking about ?

2- Since the Great Zero has not been completly been calibrated yet, does it mean that so far nobody gets the coordinates on their big KI in UU ?

3- In UU first four ages, beside Kadish gallery, can we also find markers over there too ?

4- For new UU users, where would they have able to find those infos about missions and how to get the coordinates option to be activated ?

Sorry for beeing so stupid.

1 - The 14 CGZM missions are available in the "back room" of the Great Zero. (The same one we go to in the single-player game to get the "final 4.") You gain access to that room after completing the two intial marker missions (of 15 each) and uploading them...

2 - Once you complete all 14 missions, you will in fact get coordinates on your KI -- as well as the ability to create your own custom marker missions.

3 - Markers are only located in the cavern -- Ae'gura (city, balconies, city office, etc.) and the neighborhoods.

4 - There is a notebook in the Great Zero observation room that should tell you everything you need to know.

Hi Reverend Vader,

Long time no talk with you. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

With your and Alahmnat's help, everything is much cleare now. I did try asking questions while playing except for some few very nice people, one rarely get a good answer. Strangely the nicest one are girls. Pappy nanouk do not mind that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
