The Simple_Mod_Tutorial page deals with too many things at once.
It tries to explain various files like modinfo.lua, armorDefs.lua etc but instead should just link tohttp://springrts.com/wiki/Category:Gamedata
It seems everybody seems to think "oh the wiki is such a mess: I will ignore everything that is there. instead i will make one large, really-good page that explains the universe and everything!"
But that is not how wiki works and it never worked. (see mapping too)
And even if one such good page was to be made, it would be a dead-end.
Instead of of these guides with lots of prosa text improve the pages that have real content on one subject.
The tutorials would then be likeFirst look at [[exporting your model to .s3o]]
then look at [[editing its unitDef]]
then look at adding effects by using [[CEGs]]
I mean download some tutomod and then look at http://springrts.com/wiki/Game_structure
- it is already almost a step-by-step guide.
Currently there are 3 different guides that explain the wings3D-upspring-ingame process, it should be one.
How many "lists of modding tools" are there? Countless...
Now how many of them are update to date?
http://springrts.com/wiki/The_Complete_ ... pring_Game is slightly better (more comlete, better example files) but suffers from same problems listed above.
