If you're a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or PC (via Steam) player, I'm sure you'll have come across the concept of achievements. Well, you probably have regardless. By completing certain tasks, you'll be given achievements. By increasing your achievement count, you'll usually gain an increase in rank. The system doesn't really have any functional point in particular. Like the items in the Item Shop, it's just for fun—and hey, who doesn't love fun?

Though achievements can be viewed via the Achievements List page (http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/myachievements.php), below is a list of the standard achievements in ascending order (except Special Achievements that are alphabetical), which is probably easier to follow than the list that's in descending order. In addition, due to the achievement character limit, some of the Special Achievements are better explained in this guide. All achievements except Special Achievements are automatically tracked. (Though you might need to wait a short while before they track.)

Six months logged on has earned you the highest activity achievement, and no doubt some recognition.


Wong Achievements

Note: Currently, only wong you carry (not in the bank) is tracked for these achievements. However, I'm working on finding a way to fix that so wong collectively on hand and in the bank will earn you these achievements. Check out the Wong Guide (http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?tid=347) for information on earning wong.

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/chumpchange.png Chump Change (100 Wong)
You’ve gotta start with a penny, right? You earned one hundred wong.

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/pocketmoney.png Pocket Money (500 Wong)
Great—enough to afford a basic weapon! You earned five hundred wong.

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/pittance.png Pittance (1000 Wong)
Way far back from making it big, but it's something. You earned one thousand wong.

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/spendingmoney.png Spending Money (3000 Wong)
You're not quite on a steady income yet, but you're getting there. You earned three thousand wong.

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/notverybig.png Not Very Big (10,000 Wong)
Okay, so you're not rich yet, but you can buy some pretty cool things. Don't squander your wong though, or you might find yourself at Fred's place. You earned ten thousand wong.

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/gethigher.png Get Higher (50,000 Wong)
It seems you've been investing your earnings, since you have earned fifty thousand wong!

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/perhapsenough.png Perhaps Enough (100,000 Wong)
Not bad, certainly enough to sustain a good quality of living. But that ain't good enough, is it? Come on, you can do it. You earned one hundred thousand wong.

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/jackofalltrades.png Jack of All Trades (250,000 Wong)
Fixing everything from tractors to relationships can pay off pretty well, apparently! You earned two hundred and fifty thousand wong.

http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/images/achicon/entrepreneur.png Entrepreneur (500,000 Wong)
You're starting to make some serious money. Stick to Space Takeout Cheeseburgers and Spaca-Cola, and maybe you'll earn much more. You earned five hundred thousand wong.

All five of those who work on getting the achievement must message Fred Luo when all items are purchased, and anybody who earns the achievement cannot help anybody else earn it afterwards. (This achievement can't be earned yet as some of the items haven't been created.)


Ranks List

To view the various ranks and which achievements are required, you may click the Achievements link at the top of any page when signed in and then view the Ranks List. Alternatively, click here (http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/myachievements.php?action=ranks).

This list of achievements is subject to change as more are created. If you haven't been credited with and paid for a Special Achievement, create a thread at the Luo Corporation (http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/forumdisplay.php?fid=48) stating which achievements. Because they must be added manually, it's very difficult for the forum's staff to track your Special Achievements by themselves. You may reply to your thread whenever you meet the requirements for more achievements. Please read the sticky threads at the Luo Corporation.

@Mantis, I was reading through this just now because I was curious about how some achievements work and I have a question as well as something to point out. First of all, what are the post requirements for the little title we get below our username (Notable Outlaw, Overseer, Gunman)? I've always been a fan of those and I want to know what I'm aiming for.

Secondly, a bunch of the links in this post have expired since they go to the old forums, now they just re-direct to the forum index. How much of the content in these links still applies?

User title list...

Cherry: 0 Posts
Citizen: 1 Post
Gunman: 15 Posts
Bounty Hunter: 50 Posts
Outlaw: 100 Posts
Notable Outlaw: 200 Posts
Distinguished Outlaw: 500 Posts
Renowned Outlaw: 1000 Posts
Legendary Outlaw: 2000 Posts

Also, the final one isn't just a normal title. At this level members are granted the ability to change their user title if they wish. It's a bit steep and I was thinking of lowering the Legendary requirement, but I'm pretty sure either AsherTheWilliams or Kokirininja (both high posters though not around lately) said they'd prefer it keeping as it is since they're not far off the target. So I held off on that.

As for your second question, there are a lot of broken links floating about and I need to update a few guides. I do believe most of it is still relevant though. I moved from MyBB to vBulletin when Nexus was introduced in 2015. The new achievement system is obviously different code, but all the achievements should be the same except Special Achievements. These weren't automatic on OSUK. I had to grant these achievements manually but not enough people showed interest to warrant maintaining the sub-forum made for this called the Luo Corporation, so I closed that down.

I wish a lot of those could be automated like the weapons achievements. That would be nice and provide more of an incentive to spend wong. (On that topic, I do want to bring HangGene back as that game was fun as hell.)

Hope this answers your questions, but let me know if you have any others.

Yep, that pretty much sums it all up for me. Thanks for taking the time.
