Any other way to view the whole thing? Because it's an amzing guide.
Farsight  [author] Aug 3, 2017 @ 5:39am 
Or it's just a bug.
Farsight  [author] Aug 3, 2017 @ 5:38am 
Looks like Steam updated their tables coding.

Is it just me or is part of this guide cut off?

If that's true, then the achievement accompanying it is now impossible for new players to obtain. Is there a way of contacting the developers and letting them know of this?
SeagullOCE Sep 19, 2016 @ 3:34am 
oh yeah.. the picture of your guide.
SeagullOCE Sep 19, 2016 @ 12:33am 
Why the fuck did i comment that? XD

If it isn't showing up then it was most likely removed by the Developers. When I first created the Guide, the events were random, with a new one being chosen when you clicked on the area. Now you can click on an area and select your event, so if the event isn't showing up, then it was most likely dropped from the game.
