I would highly suggest looking into the FG College. They have all kinds of courses/videos to help out new users. https://fantasygroundscollege.net

When you load FGU look up in the top left corner for a folder icon, hit that and it opens the location folder. Now open the "Docs" folder and in it should be a pdf for Alien and how to use it with FG. To use the ruleset you'll need to "Create Campaign" select Alien as the ruleset and name your campaign. Then after it loads up I'd hit the "OPT" button on the top right, select "Sidebar" and click on the "all" button to turn every button on for the sidebar. You can go back and turn stuff off later if you don't need it, but when learning what a rule can do I find it easier to have them all on. Now select "Library" ib the bottom right corner and you'll see a box open. Select "Modules" and now look for all the Alien books you want to use. There's a Gamemother and Player books along with adventures. For each one you want to open click on the "Load" and it'll populate the buttons on the sidebar with what it has in the book. Now when you go back to the Library boc you'll see what's open in the left side. If you click on a book the right side will open with what's in it. You'll see "Reference Manual" - that's going to be the book itself, kind of like a pdf of it, but not a pdf.

Also don't forget to visit the basic guide for the program, it will save a lot of trials and errors just by spending an hour reading the Wiki: https://fantasygroundsunity.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/FGCP/pages/996640029/Basic+Guides

After the basics are covered, the ruleset specific documentation is in the /docs folder, delivered as PDF file.
