WildTrax Guide


Welcome to the 1st Edition of WildTrax: The Definitive Guide

The goal of this guide is to provide a comprehensive, accessible, engaging and referenceable set of documentation to help you get started using WildTrax and exploring its many features and functions. The documentation is constantly being updated to match the system, with the 1st Edition “Rising from the Mist” being released in 2021 alongside the Phase 5 development release of WildTrax.

It strongly relies on a moderated community of investment. If there is documentation you feel is incomplete, out of date or inaccurate, email WildTrax Info or WildTrax Support at any time.
