I’ve just come across TR’s post linking together some very old tutorials (mainly Bioware ) and there looks to be some excellent stuff there.
However, I haven’t heard most of it discussed here so a quick heads up on its use (or lack of) would be appreciated. I’m guessing you’ve all assimilated these things and moved on to greater challenges but for a newbie like myself it was like one of those chests I have to put near my starting point, crammed full of higher level treasure, so I can manage to play through the mod I’m building without dying !
Actually, not so much for myself but I’m looking at helping in a Game Design class ( 15/16 yr olds) using the Toolset and anything that makes it easier at the start is probably good !
The Plot Wizard I’ve had a read through but not worked through the tutorial. Do people use it? Is it as good and simple as it sounds ? Is it something you might start with until you are more proficient in scripting, conversations etc. ?
The NWN Content Installer. It seems to suggest that if it is used by the creator of materials that it will self extract into the correct files when unzipped. Is that correct? I was under the impression that we could unzip the file but then would have to manually put each item into the correct folder. Have I got this wrong?
Do folks use the Starting Movie tutorial and does it still work? Never heard of BIK files but I’ve checked and I can get a converter for my Mac that would allow mp4 or .mov files to be changed into BIK so its something I’d have a look at if it’s easy enough.
Thanks again to TR ( and many others !) , not just for advice but for the amount of time they have put into this place. I’m just coming across it but I’ve never seen so much ( good) support for software.
Full disclosure here - I’m also buttering them up as I have a couple of very elementary building questions I’m still struggling with, which I’ll put in another post so not to confuse the answers.
