The 38 Studios Developer Index
Welcome to the 38 Studios Developer Index! This forum has been created and will be maintained in hopes that it will aid the community by creating a general reference for topics covered by the Reckoning and Copernicus development teams during their time interacting on various forums. While it's size is pretty daunting, each individual section should give you a pretty good idea of what information is contained within. This index is not all inclusive. I have chosen to leave out posts that do not specifically relate to 38 Studios, Copernicus, or Reckoning.
Each individual topic is linked below, and the main Index may be reached again by selecting the topic heading in any of the individual posts. Clicking a topic heading in this post will take you directly to that section. You may also search the entire index using the search function at the top of the page, and choosing the 38 Studios Developer Index sub forum.
Posts should appear in chronological order. The comments from Curt and the developers have a lot of information in them, and I've tried to give them extra context where possible. If you have any reservations about the comments at all, I encourage you to check out the thread at the original site to view the full post.
For suggestions, corrections, or to report a mistake or post that I've missed, leave us a comment in this thread.
