So, I decided that the foundry is the only thing in STO that I haven't tried yet (makeing, not playing), so I though, why not.
And I got lost.
I think I've managed to figure out the basics, but my vision is rapidly outstretching my knowledge and I was wondering if there is a manual of some sort, beyond the guide on the wiki, that I could use?
Failing that, is there some sort of peer ground or something to help new authors out?
A collection of all the video tutorials the community has made. There's a few that are outdated now since Cryptic has changed the foundry somewhat over the years, but Kirkfat's Back to Basics videos he made for PrimetimeUGC are excellent and up to date.
As for a peer group, you can always ask questions here or go to the chatroom at starbaseugc.com. A lot of authors hang out there and there's almost always someone on any time of the day or night.
