Very valuable post Keith
I think this thread should be pinned by Sim Innovations, as all here is organized, summarized with the essentials steps to start building with AM, therefore will fit very most, if not all, the simmers requests, beginners, and new comers to the Sim Innovations forums

@Ralph

Just a reminder. This is the thread that I requested to be made a sticky.

You can change the name if you want. I don’t mind.
