List looks very comprehensive to me. This should be very useful to people, thanks for doing this.

This is excellent, Craaig.  You should put a link to this in the Tech Support thread; I believe there's a "read this before posting" sticky.

I have a recommendation for an addition; this is how to make a component see-through so that you can give it the appearance of having holes

Awesome, will drop it in now. Thanks for that.
If anyone ever writes a more tutorial-ish tutorial for it let me know and I can update it, but that is more than sufficient for an addition.

There doesn't seem to be anything on making a 180 degree burst on this list, so maybe this topic (or an equivalent) could be added? https://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php?topic=16471.msg646764#msg646764 (https://gametechmods.com/forums/index.php?topic=16471.msg646764#msg646764)

I remember following this closely when I started out with my first tournament :). I don't think it'll need that many adjustments because it did my first tournament good and that wasn't too long ago.

Edited the layout slightly, creating a new BFE section and dividing 'Modding (Advanced)' into relevant sub-sections.
