I have set up a Wikia for Battlefield Modding Tutorials.


I am working on saving the existing modding tutorial, to include current existing ones and those that I have collected. I have been updating and expanding the singelplayer tutorials. I have copies of all the EA modding tutorials and am working on adding those.

This should solve the following problems:

- Images are hosted locally on the wikia site, so they won't vanish leaving a worthless tutorial.
- Anyone can update/contribute, so the tutorials can be updated and expanded as links become broken or new information becomes available.
- Indexes can be created, making it much easier to organize and find needed information.
- It is as easy to use as most forum threads, so it does not take an special skills to update.

Here is what I have so far:

I plan on adding to and expanding the AI tutorials. The adding singleplayer page will be an overview that links in all the separate AI tutorials together. Currently it points to the BFSP dev board, but I will updated it to link to the tutorials here once I have it all set up. I also plan on adding the rest of the EA tutorials, light mapping any other ones that I am missing that I have or can find version with intact images.

Feedback is welcome as well as suggestions or requests to make areas easier to understand or add clarification. Also anyone that wants to contribute - feel free. Anyone that knows the original author of a tutorial that is not credit, please let me know.
