My right-click isn't working. How do I fix it?
There are a few ways of tackling this problem. Firstly, go to [this thread] and try the method. If that doesn't solve the issue, then check to make sure you have Java 7 installed. Finally, if that still doesn't solve the issue, try deleting your cache. For a guide on how to install Java 7 and deleting your cache, go to [this thread]. If you're using a Mac and want to delete your cache, go to [this thread].
I launched the client and the screen is dim/dark. How do I fix it?
As of creating this post, it's not entirely certain what causes this problem (at least to my knowledge), but relaunching the client should fix the issue.
All the NPCs at home disappeared. How do I fix it?
Relaunching the client usually fixes the issue, or going down the ladder to summoning at ::home. An alternative is to use the Varrock home, which can be accessed by using the command ::home2, or going into your Spellbook -> Home Teleport -> Varrock.
I'm having a client-side issue that's not listed here/the solutions aren't working. What do I do?
If the problem you're having isn't listed in this post or the solutions provided aren't enough, contact a member of the Simplicity Staff Team (scroll down to the end to learn how to contact them).
NOTE: A lot of issues with the client can be solved by deleting your cache. It's suggested to do this fairly often to keep the game running smoothly. You can manually delete it by going to your C: Drive -> Users -> whichever User you use -> delete .Simplicitycache and reload the client.
How do I make money? What do I do first?
Unfortunately, there's no one good answer to this question. Everybody has their own opinions and tricks when it comes to making money on Simplicity, but there are a few methods that most people can agree is a good way to start earning a decent amount of cash.
EDIT: The Beginner's Guide to Money is now posted. You can check it out [here].
How long does New Player Protection (NPP) last?
You must wait 16 minutes before being able to trade with any players, enter the wilderness or be granted access to the POS (scroll down for an explanation on the POS).
How do I train [combat skill]?
If you're just starting out on the server, use the command ::train. This command will teleport you to Rock Crabs. If you would rather train on other mobs, go into your Spellbook -> Training Teleport.
TIP: If you want to train Mage, I personally recommend going to Armoured Zombies for fast levels, as the area is multi-combat.
How do I train [non-combat skill]?
To train any non-combat skill, click on the Skills Tab -> any skill you would like to train. You will then be teleported to the area where you can train the skill you clicked. Be sure to check out [this thread] for guides on skilling.
How do I start Slayer? Where do I go to fight [task]? What can I do with Slayer points?
To start Slayer, go into your Skills tab -> Slayer skill. After the dialog opens, click on Teleport to Slayer Master. Right-click the Slayer Master and choose Get-Task.
If you're not sure where your current Slayer task is, there are a few ways of figuring this out. Firstly, talk to your Slayer Master, and choose What's my current assignment?. It will tell you where your current task is and how to get there. If you still don't know where they are, consider buying a Ring of Slaying (8) for 5 Slayer points if you can afford it. The ring will teleport you to your Slayer task 8 times. Finally, if neither of the solutions above is working out, don't be afraid to ask the Simplicity Community in the help chat. We'll be more than happy to help you out.
Slayer points are used in the Slayer shop, which is located under the Rewards option when right-clicking any Slayer Master. You can purchase exclusive items, including a Slayer helm and a Fighter Torso.
TIP: To check your current task and how many mobs you have left to kill, go to your Quest tab and scroll down to Slayer Information.
How do I check the drops of a certain mob?
Use the command ::drops to bring up the panel that shows all the different mobs and their drop rates. Alternatively, you can click on the Quest tab, then scroll down until you see NPC Drop Table. You can also use the command ::finddrop insert name of mob to get the specifics on a certain mob’s drop rate.
How do I change my prayer/mage spells?
There are three different altars located directly north of the Edgeville home (type ::home and run up), and the same three altars located directly east of the Varrock home (type ::home2 and run to the right).
What’s Warmonger Boss/Muhammad Ali’s Dummy? How do I get there?
Warmonger is an end-game boss that spawns every 30 minutes. To get to Warmonger, either use the command ::warmonger, or go to your Spellbook -> Dungeons Teleport -> Warmonger Dungeon, then run south to the other side of the dungeon. It is recommended to use Ranger gear when fighting Warmonger. Also, use Protect from Melee when being attacked by the Gargoyles and Protect from Melee/Mage when fighting Warmonger.
Muhammad Ali’s Dummy is a server-event that happens every 6 hours. To get to Muhammad Ali's Dummy, you must have everything unequipped, then use the command ::ali. You will then be teleported to the Muhammad Ali's Dummy area with boxing gloves equipped. Make sure to unequip the boxing gloves and equip them again.
NOTE: Only one (1) account can be at the Warmonger/Muhammad Ali boss at a time. For the full list of rules, go to [this thread].
How do I get to Zulrah?
Talk to Master Zulri at Edgeville home and he will teleport you to the boss; he’s right outside the Edgeville bank beside the obelisk. Ranging gear is highly recommended when fighting this boss.
Do I lose my items on death?
No, you do not lose your items on death. You will only lose items on death if you die in the wilderness. Unless skulled, you will keep 3 items, 4 with protect item. Untradeable items will always be kept on death, even if you die in the wilderness.
What’s the price of [item]?
Check out [this thread] and the comments for a general idea of the prices of most items in-game. Just remember that the prices of almost every item in the game tend to fluctuate every day, so I recommend asking members of the Simplicity Community.
How do I vote? How do I claim votes? What are vote scrolls? I can’t claim my votes?
To vote, type the command ::vote in the client or click [here]. This will take you to the voting page, where you can vote for Simplicity by clicking on the links shown. To claim your votes, use the command ::claimvote. You gain 2 vote scrolls for each website you vote on (4 if double voting is active). Voting on all the websites will grant you 10 vote scrolls (20 if double voting is active).
Vote scrolls are exclusive items gained only from voting. You can claim the vote scrolls by right-clicking them in your Inventory and clicking Claim or Claim-All. You’ll then be presented with two different options: 30% bonus experience for 10 minutes, or 1M coins and 1 vote point. Choosing either option will consume the scroll(s). Vote points can be used in the Vote Shop, which can be accessed by talking to Sir Vyvin. He’s located at the Edgeville and Varrock homes.
The vote system has recently been updated, so there are a few known issues. The Simplicity Staff Team are working hard to fix these issues and will update the community when such fixes are made. In the meantime, if you’re unable to claim your votes, contact the owners Supreme/Arthur either in-game or through ::discord and they’ll compensate you accordingly.
NOTE: You must have evidence you’ve voted in order to be compensated.
What are Loyalty Points? How do I earn them? What can I do with them?
Loyalty points are earned through playing on the server. Pretty much anything you do will earn you a steady income of Loyalty points. You can use Loyalty points to purchase titles through the Loyalty Shop, which can be accessed by talking to Sir Vyvin. He’s located at the Edgeville and Varrock homes. Loyalty points are also a requirement for the Veteran cape; you’ll have needed to earn at least 500K points.
NOTE: Being AFK will not earn you Loyalty Points.
How do I answer trivia questions? What can I do with Trivia Points?
To answer a trivia question, use the command ::answer answer. All the questions/answers to trivia can be found [here]. Trivia points can be used in the Trivia Point Shop to purchase items, which is located at both the Edgeville and Varrock homes.
Am I able to prestige? What can I do with Prestige Points?
To prestige, go into your Skills Tab and right-click -> Prestige on any skill that is level 99. You can earn anywhere between 3 – 20 Prestige Points, depending on the skill and the amount of experience you’ve accumulated. Prestige Points are used to purchase items in the Prestige Shop, which can be accessed by trading with Max. He’s located in the Edgeville and Varrock homes.
What are Boss Points? What can I do with them?
Boss Points are earned when you defeat any boss. Each boss you kill gives you 1 Boss Point. Unfortunately, there are too many bosses to list for this thread, but almost all of them have good drops.
You can use Boss Points to purchase items in the Boss Point Shop, which can be accessed by talking to the Boss Point Shop NPC located at both the Edgeville and Varrock homes. There are valuable items you can purchase through here, including a Toxic/Magma Blowpipe and a [Legendary] Mystery Box.
How do I zoom out?
Hold CTRL + scroll using the mouse wheel.
I need help with my clue scroll. Where do I go to dig?
[This thread] gives you the location of every clue scroll currently implemented in the server. If you’re not entirely sure how to get to the locations shown in the thread, the Simplicity Community is full of people that are more than willing to guide you, so don’t be afraid to ask for help.
How do I set my “F” keys?
Click on the Settings Tab -> PC -> F1 icon at the bottom-right. This should then take you to the Keybinding Panel, where you can adjust the F keys accordingly.
What’s the Evil Tree/Crashed Star? How do I get there?
The Evil Tree and Crashed Star are both a D&D that randomly spawn in select locations. Their locations vary, but they spawn 45 minutes after being fully mined/cut. To find their locations, use the commands ::tree and ::star. Alternatively, go to your Quest Tab and their locations should be under General Information. You must have at least level 80 Mining to mine the Crashed Star, and 80 Woodcutting to cut the Evil Tree. If the command gives you an error, it means they’re no longer in the world.
The Evil Tree gives you Evil Tree Kindling when cutting it, which sells for 27,000 coins each in the General Store. The Crashed Star gives you Stardust when mining it, which can be used to purchase items in the Stardust Shop by talking to the Expert Miner.
NOTE: Only one (1) account can be mining/cutting at the Crashed Star/Evil Tree at a time. For the full list of rules, go to [this thread].
What’s the Well of Goodwill?
The Well of Goodwill is a special well located right outside the Edgeville bank and west of Varrock square. Players can donate up to 100M coins into the well, which will grant every player 30% bonus experience for 2 hours. There is also another well for items, called the magic well, which you can read about through [this thread].
What’s the lottery? How does it work? How do I gamble?
The lottery is a weekly event where players have a chance to win a large sum of cash. To enter the lottery, you must talk to the Gambler NPC at ::gamble. Click Talk about the Lottery -> I’d like to enter; it will cost you 10M coins to enter the lottery and be qualified. At the end of the week (usually Friday or whenever the owner draws it), a random qualified player will be chosen, and they will win the pot accumulated over the past week.
To start gambling, use the command ::gamble (the lottery NPC is also located here). There are a few different games that you can play, which [this guide] does a good job of explaining.
CAUTION: It is highly recommended to record any gambling you do, as you must have video evidence of being scammed in order to file a report. By agreeing to gamble, you acknowledge that the Simplicity Staff Team waives all responsibility for your losses. Please gamble responsibly.
What’s the POS? How do I buy/sell items through it?
The POS stands for Player Owned Shop and, as the name suggests, is a shop owned by players. You can use the POS to sell or buy items from other players by talking to the Player Owned Shop Manager (hereafter referred to as POSM) located at both the Edgeville and Varrock homes. It acts similarly to the Grand Exchange.
To buy items, right-click the POSM -> View Shops. Click on any of the player’s name to open their shop. Once opened, you can see all the items that player has for sale. You can only buy items from POS using coins.
To sell items, right-click the POSM -> My Shop. You can then put any item in your inventory for sale for any price you desire.
There is also a search option at the bottom, where you can search for a certain player's shop, or a certain item you're looking for.
TIP: When setting the price of an item in the POS, or handling money in any way, you can type “10M” instead of “10000000”, as an example. It is the same thing and makes the process smoother to insure you don't put the wrong value by accident.
I need to contact a member of the Simplicity Staff Team. How do I go about this?
For starters, you can send them a private message in-game. To check which members of the staff are currently online, use the command ::staff. Alternatively, you can use the command ::help, which will submit an in-game ticket. If they don’t respond to your message or accept your ticket right away, don’t fret! They may be busy with other player requests or preoccupied with other responsibilities.
Another way of contacting the Simplicity Staff Team is through the Simplicity Discord server. You can join the Discord server through [here]. They will get back to your messages/requests as soon as possible, so please be patient.
How do I donate to the server? What are the benefits?
NOTE: Before donating to the server, please read the Terms & Services regarding donating, which can be found [here].
To donate to the server, you can either type in the command ::donate in-game, or [click here] to visit the shop. It's also possible to donate directly to Arthur, or to donate with RSGP through Arthur or Supreme. Please contact them for those options! As of creating this post, there are currently a few deals going on. For more information, visit [this thread]!
The benefits of donating to the server can be found on [this thread], which include but are not limited to bonus experience, double loot at Barrows, and access to exclusive bosses in the donator zone.
