I have compiled a bunch of threads, tutorials and videos that you might find useful. I have ordered individual links in their respective categories by relevancy and how much usefulness I find their information. Note some of this might be complex. I know Egan already made this but there are some useful things (in my eyes) that he didn't have in the thread particularly Idolon's and Fishbus' videos. Feel free to comment suggestions that you want me to put here.
