Well, this is a bit premature, but here goes:

I was wondering if any of you were planning on doing any guides or anything of the sort (i.e. location of flags, the "viewpoint" locations, etc.), and if there is anyone, to offer my help in any way. I won't have the time to dedicate myself to creating a comprehensive list/guide, but I can certainly provide any info that might help!

it would be hard for such an open ended game like this, but its a neat idea. i think several people collaborating into one guide would make sense owing to the scope of the game and the nature of its quests.

I don't think the fact that the game is relatively open ended would make a difference, since it's been made pretty clear from previews/dev diaries that there are certain things you can do (pick pockets, favours for groups that will help you, find flags, and use viewpoints to uncover the map) that will be fixed no matter what. This is what I mean when I say guide, perhaps that's a bit misleading. I meant something more like this: http://xennon.co.uk/eliteskills/ with detailed directions on how to find/achieve the various side-quests and such.

I have been looking on other forums to see if anyone had plans in undertaking something of this nature yet I am disappointed to say this is the only thread I have seen so far.

I would contribute to such a thing if the project went underway.

I might make a guide for a number of missions, it depends on how much time I'm going to spend playing Assassin's Creed ^^

Glad to hear it Croxy, I'll let you know if I hear anything myself.

To clarify once again, I don't mean guides for the main missions, I get the impression those will be fairly straightforward anyways. What I'm talking about is all those little extras that people are going to want to complete, things you'll do once you've finished the main story and such to extend your gameplay.

Yeah, but even though i like the idea of completing these challenges yourself, i'd still like to contribute in any way i can.

Most of the achievements are pretty straight forward, however I can see someone maybe making a guide for the secret ones. But isn't that why they are secret, so people can uncover them for themselves http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just to clarify, I noticed some people are confuzzled, he's taking about writing a guide, y'know MAKING one, like on gamefaqs.com (that's the site right? I forgot I never goto it lol)

Due to my unfamiliarity with Achieve360points.com, I can't say that's exactly what I intended, but from a quick look at the site, I gather that you complete certain objectives and get points...
@RetiredHatch - I was thinking somewhat along those lines, but not quite a whole guide.

This will be my last attempt to explain what I mean http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

Since Achieve360points only tells you what the achievements are, and (unless people create guides in the forums) not how to achieve them, what I wanted to do was say, take the 100 (?) flags you can grab in the game, find them, and give a detailed explanation on how and where to find them. This is simply to help those stuck with certain ones, or to help people who want to 'complete' the game do so!

Hope that helps! Doesn't seem to be too much enthusiasm in any case, so I'm thinking we should just let this one be until the game comes out and we see exactly how viable this sort of idea is anyways.
