Fabric tutorials thread

Post by FabricPaul » 09 Nov 2015, 13:03

Hi everyone - we're slowly pushing out tutorial videos and we're working on new content all the time. I will edit this post as it becomes available - it would be great if a mod could sticky this thread. I have linked the videos rather than embedding them.

Now we're getting through the basics the content should start becoming a little more interesting.

All tutorials can be found here: http://forums.fabricengine.com/categories/tutorials

Thanks,

Paul

We're looking to do a closed beta very soon - are you on our google group already? https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/fabricengine - I'll ask for testers there soon.

It's probably a little deep for me right now, but I need to start somewhere.

Completely OT, of course, but out of personal curiosity:
what forum software do you use for your new forum?

Looking at the page code, it seems to be vanilla.

But correct me if I'm wrong ;-)

Finally getting through the basics, the tutorials should start getting a bit more interesting now.

"A bit more interesting" is relative to the skill level of the user, obviously.
As an absolute beginner, still daunted by the sheer complexity of it all,
I am hoping you will keep on making more basic tutorials as well...
:ympray: :-ss ;)
