How to change your appearance in Starfield

Some people love to spend hours in character creators, while others just want to get right into the game. Starfield doesn't have the most robust systems for modeling your character, but you can still spend a good chunk of time before even choosing your Background or Traits. Even if you do take your time, there's a good chance you will eventually get tired of looking at the same face after dozens or hundreds of hours and want something fresh. You'd never know it unless you stumbled upon it, but Starfield does allow you to alter your appearance after the opening. Here's how to do it.

Difficulty

Easy

Duration

How to change your appearance

You can change what your character looks like almost immediately after the intro in Starfield by visiting a specific location.

Step 1: Travel to New Atlantis.

Step 2: Go to the Commercial District.

Step 3: From the train station, go straight ahead past the Infinity Ltd. building on the left.

Step 4: The next building is the Enhance! shop with a big blue and yellow sign with a face on it.

Step 5: Go inside and talk to the receptionist and pay the 500 Credits to be taken back to the character creator screen, where you can completely reshape your character.

You can always come back here to change your character whenever you like, so long as you have the small fee of 500 Credits to spend.

How to visit Treasure Islands in Animal Crossing
Gameplay action from Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch.

 

Decorating and designing your dream island in Animal Crossing: New Horizions takes a lot of Bells and materials. There are hundreds of ways to decorate your dream island, but the grind to get there can be a little daunting, especially with so many items being seasonal or part of holiday events. You are always encouraged to go out and visit your friend's islands via Dodo Airlines (as long as you have a Nintendo Switch Online membership) so you can trade for or snag some items from their islands. You might also have heard of special Treasure Islands you can visit. These are said to be jam-packed with all sorts of rare items to collect. As you know, you can't randomly visit other players' islands, so here's how you can reach them.
What are Treasure Islands?
Treasure Islands are islands made by players with the specific purpose of providing easy access to tons of items in Animal Crossing: New Horizions. These can include all sorts of DIY items, money bags, seasonal and holiday items, and more. However, be warned that some Treasure Islands are created by people who have modified their game. Grabbing an item from these islands shouldn't put your account at risk as we have yet to see any reports of players being banned for visiting a hacked island, but you should still do so at your own risk.

How to turn off adaptive triggers on PS5
A person holds up a PS5 controller.

One of the major advancements the PlayStation 5 brought with its new DualSense controller was a new form of haptic feedback. In addition to more dynamic rumble, this included adaptive triggers that could adjust how it felt to pull the triggers to match the action on-screen. This could mean simulating resistance, or stopping the trigger short at different intervals. While novel, it isn't always great if you want to be playing at your best. The last thing you want is to struggle to fire your weapon in an online first-person shooter. Thankfully, this is an optional feature you can easily disable from your console.

Sea of Thieves alliances guide: how to join and benefits
Two ships fighting in Sea of Thieves.

There are ways in which you could play as a solo pirate in Sea of Thieves, but adventuring is so much more fun and rewarding when you're part of a crew. Once you've gotten a handle on how to play the game, taking on voyages and attacking other players with fellow pirates is where the real fun begins. Alliances make it much easier to coordinate and team up with your fellow scallywags, but how you form them and all the benefits they can provide are somewhat obfuscated. It isn't as simple as joining a party through a menu like in other games, so follow our treasure map to learn all about how alliances work in Sea of Thieves.
How to join or start an alliance

Alliances aren't made in menus, but require you to do some work in-game. Just like real pirates, alliances are determined by what flag you're flying. When you're sailing near a ship you want to partner up with, climb up your crow's nest and interact with the flag box. Go to the Alliances tab and choose the Offer Alliance flag. If the other ship is also flying that flag, you can then change your flag to the Join Alliance flag to fully form the alliance. There is no limit on how many ships can be in an alliance at once in one game.
