Ryzom Ring

The Ring is Ryzom's system that allows players to create their own scenarios for others to play.

For a list of known Arispotle Ring scenarios, see List of Ring scenarios.

Howto

Joining a Scenario

To join a scenario hosted by someone else, first you need to go to a Ring Terminal. There's a Ring Terminal at the main gate of all of the 4 capital cities. (Fairhaven, Pyr, Yrkanis and Zora) Ring Terminals look like this:

A Ring Terminal.

Select the Ring Terminal and you'll get the option to "Enter the Ring." Click or double-click (depending on your settings) to do this.

This opens the Ring Destinations window, seen below. Most of the time, the list will be empty, and you'll see "No scenario found" displayed in red letters. This means nobody is currently hosting a Ring Scenario.

If there is a scenario currently being hosted, the window will look like below. The columns display various information about the scenario, like who's hosting it, what it's name is, etc. Note the green symbol next to the eye in the first column; this means you can join the scenario right-away, without needing an invitation.

To join this scenario, simply click on the scenario to select it, then click the "join" button in the bottom-right corner of the window, as displayed below. The "ask for invite" button does nothing in this case; if you can click the "join" button already then you don't need an invitation.

If the scenario does not have the green symbol, then selecting the scenario will present you with a greyed out "join" button, as below. In this case, you'll need to click the "ask for invite" button to receive an invitation.

Once you receive the invitation, the green symbol will appear next to the eye and the "join" button will become clickable. You can then click the "join" button to enter the scenario as before.

Additional Notes

Try to ignore the columns that display "difficulty" and "type". Many players look at these columns and decide the scenario is not right for them, while in truth the data displayed here is almost always woefully inaccurate. The only way to find out what the scenario is really like is just to try it. Don't worry, there's no death penalty.

Running a Scenario

Because there's almost never someone else hosting a Ring scenario, often the best way to play a scenario is just to download and run them for yourself. Many creators make their scenarios available for download.

Ring scenario files have the .r2 extension. Unpack this file, then go to your Ryzom directory (the same one your screenshots are kept in). You should see a folder called "my_scenarios". If it's not there, you may have to create it. Move the .r2 file into this directory.

Now, load up the game, and find a Ring Terminal. As above, select the Ring Terminal to bring up the Ring Destinations window.

Probably, the list will be empty as usual. Now, click on the big green "New Destination" button.

This will bring up the "Load Scenario" window, displayed below. Now to find the scenario you just downloaded...

Click on the + next to "My Files". Then in the dropdown that opens, click on the + next to "My scenarios". This will show you all .r2 files you have in your "my_scenarios" folder. The example below has 7 different scenarios in her folder to chose from, but ofcourse if you've only one scenario in there, only one will show.

Selectscenario.jpg

Click on a scenario to select it, and the lower half of the window will display various info about it. Most is fairly self-explanatory. Specifically note the "Control" category; if this says "Masterless" you will appear in the scenario as a player, if it says "Mastered" you will appear as a GM. If you're satisfied it's the right scenario, click "OK".

At last, this will bring up the "Listing Options" window, shown below. All the checkboxes here affect purely whether or not other players will see your scenario at Ring Terminals and whether or not they'll be able to join. They have no effect on your playing experience. If you want to play undisturbed by other players joining you, just uncheck the "ALLOW NEWCOMERS" box, and all the other options will disappear.

Finally, click the "Launch" button to be taken inside the scenario of your choice.
