Well said. Thank you.

And in case it wasn't clear in my previous posts, I highly support your complaint. I was only trying to encourage better communication for all parties.

Post Corrected and easier to read.

To start, you could go back to through the release versions since the manual, and for every discrepancy (change between versions) post what the change is, what is new in this version, and how to use the new feature. Every time there was a major release, it would be easy to quickly edit the information and keep it all relevant. You could even document the information like the military, with sheets that document the typos and changes between versions.

ED needs to start documenting the core program and mission editor with each release and putting out a new manual with the new major release. Great programs die because of poor or lack of current documentation. it discourages new users from using the software, as it can be hard to solve problems, or even just know how to use all of the software’s features!

What do you experienced simmers recommend we newbie's study until a manual update is completed? Which threads/forums are worthwhile reading? Thanks
