    New to module creation; Confused about Campaign Data

    I'm trying my hand at making a small module for the first time. It is intended for use with Pathfinder 1E

    Currently, I'm reading this page: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/...aign_Data_List

    1) GUI for Campaign Data?

    I can't seem to wrap my head around "Campaign Data" Is there a single container somewhere that I can view all of the data for the module, or does that require exporting the module, loading a new campaign (separate from the one used to create it), and loading the module there?

    Am I limited to clicking on individual side bar tabs during module development?

    2) Categories & Tabs

    What are they? I don't seem to have the ability to create or edit them. I'm guessing they are the red and green banners at the bottom of this image:



    Have categories been replaced by groups? Is there no longer the ability to have tab colors and icons?



    In short, what should I be using to organize my module visually?

    Categories have indeed been replaced by groups. No more tabs.

    I would ignore what you've tried to decipher from that wiki link. It's not really the info you need to create a module. I couldn't find any up to date module tutorials on the forums, though their are several video tutorials that are current; https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...odule+creation

    Also, check out the Best Practices link in my signature

    First, campaigns are different than modules, but you use a campaign to create a module. Quick steps are;
    1) create a development campaign to create your module
    2) enter all the data you want, use groups with intelligent naming
    3) type "/export" in chat, select All or just the types of data you want to export, give it a name, thumbnail (optional), etc, export.
