Here's the thing with altis life. There is a somewhat steep learning curve when you begin playing if someone isn't teaching you. I would recomend playing with someone who knows what they are doing if it's your first time. For example you may walk all the way up to the copper field without knowing you need a pickaxe and a copper processing liscence! If you don't know have anyone to learn from post your questions here and I will help you get started. Top Gun got the hang of everything pretty quick, but dont worry if you have some issues starting out.
