This thread will contain spillover material from various introductory posts (such as the Request Rules). Those posts must be kept brief because they are intended for newcomers. Detailed explanations will be provided in this thread, for perusal at users' convenience. The material in this thread is not required reading. It will include some details on technical subjects (e.g. Flash, ActionScript) which may be confusing for some users. The material will sometimes address the esoterica of the SDT game itself, which is of interest only to modders and their collaborators. If you don't understand the content of a post then please feel free to simply close this thread and continue using the forums - there is a great deal of newbie-friendly material available for you to download and use. For the sake of simplicity, this thread will be kept locked. If you wish to provide feedback, propose changes, or report a broken link then please contact a moderator for assistance.
