Some time ago there might have been a discussion like this. We sat the other day and thought aloud…
Gosh, this mod is gigantic and this mod is complicated and all the upgrades they are complex, people will be wrecking their brain.
What can we possibly do?
We could write a readme or a manual!
… but who is gonna read this, actually?
Yeah, dumb idea, but wait… what if we release them beforehand?
Hm, this might work. They are killing us to get the mod, so maybe we can hold them off for a few days AND convince them to read just by giving out the readme and the manual a few days early.
Let’s do it …
So, uhm enough said.
This covers the first roll out, setup advise for engine, brakes, tires and more, the ControlCenter, some basic FAQ (nothing new actually) and the everlong credits list.
(And don’t ask why we totally forgot to make a translation in our mother tongue 😉 )
Thanks to our translators! Oh and while I was already credited here 2 weeks ago for my work on the Manual, I have to pass it to Codan, who jumped in, when I had to jump in for some other guy in a different project. Also kudos to Michael, Gonzo and Arloch, who spent the time writing and explaining how the setups and upgrades work.
Ok, and now I fall in my bed and wonder what I have forgotten… guess I’ll learn tomorrow morning.
Update 4. Dec 2008:
Ok, we addressed some of the bugs in the manual, thanks for the feedback! Alex added some addition plr-settings for texturesize and mirrordetails. I added 2 FAQ-entries, which came up here in the comments.
We also added the German translation of the readme. 😉
