    Obviously, a game as complex as AotSS needs documentation. I know that. We know that. It's just that, as with many small indie studios, someone's got to do the writing. And at a small indie studio, people wear many hats. So I get to wear the 'try to write a manual' hat this time around. Anyway, here's the link to the living manual. It will grow over time (I'm going to finish the Projects chapter tonight and post it) so keep looking!

    Thanks for your continued support!

    I update my statement - my comments should arrive tomorrow, currently at around 60% of the write-up. Hopefully you guys can use a Word file with Tracking Changes enabled, to see what I refer to?

    IMHO, it´s very clear for newbies.
    Although some images are necessary.

    Hey folks, attached is a Word 2013 document, where I copied all of the chapters 1-5. I enabled "Track Changes" for you to see my suggestion in the text (just do not choose All Markup, cause you will also see the deletions). I also added some Comments here and there where I felt something could need further explanation etc.

    This is all coming from a complete newb to the game, so perhaps some concepts are already explained somewhere. But on the other hand it allows me to spot places which you as devs might take for granted, while new players might be mystified by.

    I don't know if you forgot, but apparently Chapter 6 was meant to go up on the 14th?
