@kamal wrote a good guide on this topic:

There’s also another guide:

Some notes can be found in @rjshae’s toolset guide:

The script for this spell (nw_s0_lghtnbolt) uses two visual effects:

    effect eLightning = EffectBeam(VFX_BEAM_LIGHTNING, OBJECT_SELF, BODY_NODE_HAND);
    effect eVis  = EffectVisualEffect(VFX_HIT_SPELL_LIGHTNING);

VFX_BEAM_LIGHTNING -> sp_lightning_ray.sef
VFX_HIT_SPELL_LIGHTNING -> sp_lightning_hit.sef

Ah, ok then :slightly_smiling_face:
