You can check the wiki (http://aurorawiki.pentarch.org). The info there is a bit more current, but still mostly in th 5.7 range.

there's real problems with writing tutorials,

Aurora has a huge amount of setup when starting a game and tech picks are sorta randomized for new games.  And any step-by-step procedure you write will be invalidated by new versions.

I think we need a 'tutorial game' included in the main package which has a very basic sandbox setup, with basic premade ship components and no starting NPRs.  I could set it up myself but any package I hosted would go out of date p. quick.

Hell I need to write a tutorial just for installing the game...haha!

(Despite sentiments to the contrary, I find Conventional starts to be more straightforward and less overwhelming than TN starts because the tech progression is presented to you naturally./

The reason CI are considered "advanced" is any NPR generated starts at TN tech. So if you encounter them after 10 years in which you worked from CI to nuke-pulse, they've had 10 years research from nuke-pulse on.

But in the short term, CI is probably easier for a new player.

I definitely found a conventional start to be very, very helpful for learning how the game is basically played.  The trans-newtonian start was overwhelming for me as a new player.
