EQI VS EQII
I have not played any game in the Everquest series and I would like to try one. What are the primary differences between the second one and the first what do you think I should try?

Your much better off trying EQ2, its far more friendly to new players, and easier to get to max level where most of the grouping / raiding is done. I'm an old EQ1 player as well. EQ1 is extremely grindy which was fine back in the day, but these days I find it hard to sit in one spot and pull/kill mobs for hours on end to get exp. Can try them both for free anyhow to see which one you like. If you end up with EQ2 I highly recommend going to eq2interface.com and getting EQ2maps, it has to be the most useful mod I've used in that game.

Thanks for the intelligent response Vyper. I kinda of posed the same question in the EQ 1 steam forums and I got fighting instead of any real useful responses.

Finding my way around for some reason is one of the hardest issues I have in older PC games. When I was a kid it seems like I had less game and I could play the same thing all day. I'd run around endlessly until I had the map memorized. But I don't have the time or patience to be like that anymore. II tried to give Morrowind a shot because I love TES series but because I literally couldn't find my way around to complete quests I just gave up on it. It's nice to know that EQ2 actually has some mods. Any other recommended mods I should get?

Alot of people like ProfitUI from eq2interface and DrumsUI also. Personally I just pick out things I like from the Interface Pieces section, I do like alot of Drums stuff, just not the whole UI. I would say the quest journal is pretty useful, it has little tabs in it you can click and it opens a browser in game with the quest your on. He also has an examine mod that has the web link tabs as well, it will bring up a few websites if your trying to find info on where the item comes from etc. If you don't want the hassle of going through pieces, Drums and Profit full UI's have updaters so you don't have to mess with all the individual files everytime we have a patch.

EQ2maps is a must have I think. The info on it is way to useful.

I've tried to install eq2maps but I have the steam version of eq2 and it won't install. Anyone have a solution to this?

I figured this out i'll look into how I did it but i believe I went into my steam folder , steamapps, common and eq2 and put them there.

eq2 has better graphics eq1 still looks and feels like pre milennium in some areas however eq1 has far better storytelling in many areas... if you can get past its outdated graphics and extremely clunky ui
