    Resource Thread - Links, info & useful media

    Since many have been asking questions both about specific mechanics and general state of the game and updates news, here is a compilation of Planetside 2 resources from the web:

    Game Client:


    Official


    Skills, tactics, leadership:




    YouTube:


    Tweets & news:


    Community forums:
    • Planetise subreddit. The "unofficial official forums". Best and most active forum for PS2 discussion. Besides Twitter, this is the forum that devs are the most active on: http://www.reddit.com/r/Planetside/
    • Miller server subreddit. Not very active, but still useful: http://www.reddit.com/r/MillerPlanetside/
    • Planetside Universe. Besides the official forums, it is one of the main forums for PS2 discussion. Developers post there, and the host of PSU is one of the most active and vocal members of the PS2 community. Also features character and outfit stats and a wiki: http://www.planetside-universe.com/


    Community sites:
    • Imperial Reach. An outfit page, but the podcast, for those with patience (not me!), is informative, and hosts interviews with devs occasionally: http://imperialreach.com/
    • The Mittani. Shout out to our Goons. It features occasional articles and interviews about Planetside 2: http://www.themittani.com


    Tools:
    • PS2 Maps. Ownership status updated in real time. They'll implement drawing on the map sometime in the future, plus other cool features: http://www.ps2maps.com
    • PS2builder. Character builder for PS2, useful for calculating how many certs you need to progress a class or vehicle, useful for planning your character in the beginning: http://www.ps2builder.com/
    • Weapon Damage Analyzer: Calculates damage, damage/magazine, ttk and DPS for infantry weapons. Takes into account type of ammunition, if applicable, and also hypothetical user accuracy. http://ps2model-axiom.rhcloud.com/
    • PS2 Damage Calculator. Calculates damage to vehicles, taking into account weapon inflicting the damage, cert upgrades, fire modes, angle of attack, etc: http://www.ps2calc.com/

    I put it in the list along with some youtube channels. Saw it in the PS2 subreddit last night, it's practically basic infantry training in six infographics.

    - Tom De Roeck.

    verse publications & The Shopkeeper, an interactive short.

    "Quantacat's name is still recognised even if he watches on with detached eyes like Peter Molyneux over a cube in 3D space, staring at it with tears in his eyes, softly whispering... Someday they'll get it."

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I can't seem to start a new thread.

    Is there a resource for the upload and sharing of various hardware profiles (for gaming mice/keyboards etc)? I just got a new Corsair M90 and was wondering the best way to have the bindings.

    Itzmurda has a video in his youtube channel where he analyzes keybinds and best practices.

    Other than that, IDK.

    This is probably the best place to put the Thread Of All Threads link, since it no longer has it's own sticky.
