How to Add a Friend in Docking Station
-------------------------------------------------------------
Description: This set of instructions will tell you how to add a friend to your Docking Station contacts window in the Comms Room.
Here's what to do:
1.) Start Docking Station. Enter the world in which you want to add your friend.
2.) Open the caos command line editor. (You can do this by pressing the control, shift, and c keys simultaneously.) Ctrl + Shift + C.
3.) The first step in adding your friend will be to get your own id number. You can do so by typing the phrase that is contained within the quote into your command line editor exactly as you see it displayed.
Quote:
outs net: user

-or-
You can click Control+Shift+B Twice and your ID will be displayed.
4.) The numerical code displayed by your engine in the line under the command you just entered will be your personal id number. You can give this number to your friend so he/she can add you to their game. For example: My number is 6481+11
(Hint: You may also want to tell them the username associated with your number. Just in case you have more than one.)
5.) After both you and your friend have found and exchanged your id numbers you will want to add each other. You can do so by typing the phrase that is contained within the quote, into your command line editor as you see it displayed, however this time you will substitute your friend's number for my number which is displayed in bold.
Quote:
rtar 1 1 157 mesg wrt+ targ 1000 "6481+11" 0 0

(Note: Of course you can add me too if you want to!)
6.) If you look at your contacts list you should now see your friend's name displayed in the window. Simply change the smiley face from yellow to green, and your friend will be listed with your game engine as a friend! =)
NOTE: It has come to my attention... via my own fumblings... that if you intend to properly add your friend you must be online in DS (i.e. the little "I'm online button" in the upper left gui must be green.) before you try to add your friend, or their name will not display properly!<hr>
