Game Rules
4. User interface

The website navigation is divided in 3 sections. The top menu is the most use full panel, with links to many different main areas of the game. The right information panel shows you links and info from the page you currently are, and the Player Bar at the top has the info about the server you are playing on (time, date, visitors) and links to your players and the FS coin page. You also have a Direct Link Bar at the bottom of the page that you can customize and hide.

The first page after your login is the FS Wall Page. We call it the default page. You can move to this page either by using the top menu (clicking the house icon) or by clicking on the game´s logo at the top left of any page. In this page you´ll find lots of useful information: On the left side you’ll find information boxes with your player recent events, next events and game events, recently updated blogs and news. On the center you have the FS wall. There you can publish your recent events or any comment you want, and you can see what you friends have publish. You can also publish comments on other players and team walls. You can change your wall picture and other options on the “option” link at the top of the FS Wall.

On the right information panel you´ll often have the specific options of the page you´re visiting (always on top of other info boxes), your player information and your FS Wall friends (these friends are different that the interactions friends. Read the section “Players Relationships and Interactions” section): To add a player to your FS Wall friends list, just go to the player page and click the “add as friend” link.

The Direct Link Bar shows you links to important pages of the game. To customize the Direct Link Bar click the gear wheel icon and then “customization”.

The most important navigation area is of course the top menu. The top menu will be divided into main areas as: Player, Character, Team, Competitions, Community and Shop (You will see also Manager and Youth Team as option if you are managing a team).

The Player menu contains all the options you need to control your player´s life in FootStar. From the training options (set your training, follow your training evolution) to the Relationships page (check your interaction information and Team Spirit), along with: the contract page (to review the current terms of your contract, but also to negotiate a new contract with your manager), match orders (player´s individual orders, match options), location (check the City Details and Personal Trips), and finally the belongings page where you can check your stash (Match Items for the games) and your Items/goods (control the level of your lifestyle. Please refer to chapter 9 for more details on this).

The next menu is the Character menu.

The Manager Job Center, Manager Ranking and Company will only be visible if you’re a FS Fan (package that allows you to control a team among other features).

The last menu, Shop, contains links to pages where you can buy different FootStar products. The FS Fan link leads you to the page where you can buy one of the different kinds of FS fan available.
