    With the Asset Server in a state of abandon, attention is turning towards other Versioning tools. Asset Server documentation is fantastic, follow the ABC and you're all set.
    Perforce? Not so much. The VC section assumes that we're seasoned Perforce users and as a result we can't get up to speed.
    Here are the questions that should be answered in the documentation and help AS users transition:
    1. What are the user name and password? How do we set them up or find them?
    2. From copying p4d, p4v and admin to a machine, what are the steps to get the unity client connected?
    3. What is the difference between server and host, what setting goes where.
    4. If I have p4d running on my machine, where does localhost:1666 goes in the unity settings?
    5. What is a workspace and a depot and where do we put projects in relationship to them?

    Thanks laurentlavigne. I've added a task for the docs team to review and update these docs, with your specific concerns and questions included. We'll fix this.
