I recently started looking at modding and found tons of awesome work done in this field from which I have learned quite a bit, but as someone with development background, my first questions was "where are the modding engine reference manuals?". I've spent quite some time trying to find them and all I can get is good but partial documentation developed by you guys. I refuse to believe that SOASE developers have never provided an official modding reference. Can anyone please point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.
Download the forge tools from the download section of this site. The tools themselves are out of date but the PDFs are the main official documentation of everything (much of this is on the Sins wiki now). Any other bit of info has been mostly from specific questions to the devs.
If you're expecting like an API reference or anything like that, it does not exist.
