Over the years The Vault accumulated tons of nice tutorials for newbies. Unfortunately, finding them is not so easy - so I’ve started this thread to make it easier.
Let’s start with the basic ones - using toolset.
Start with Toolset Manual by Builder’s Project (pdf format, basically every part of the toolset described, including things like changing area properties, setting encounters, creating conversations, starting and managing quests + most common “how to” - like automatic closing doors after some time).
Next, there’s also NWN Lexicon v.1.69 - there are tutorials “step by step” Robert Straughan Capture Glory - Writing a module + Celowin’s Tutorials
To all the old - timers - what would you recommend?
Well first I’ll get this into the open. I dislike that page intensely (NwN University) because there are just too many files all thrown together. I end up having to use my browser’s text search to find anything and quite often that doesn’t work for the downloads. Let me make it clear it’s the page not the contents that I have issues with. It’s not even as though you can download it all in one.
Back in the days of the old BSN forums, I made a list of links the majority of which became broken when the ign vault died. I and the Migrate Wizard have gone through and reattached some of those links. Here is the Instructional manuals etc, part of it.
The “*Starting Conditional Scripts Organized by ruelk” is actually the document that I converted to a pdf document and included in my “TR’s Basics - Variables, Types and Functions (TBC)” package. I have added an acknowledgement and a link on that project page.
Anyway, hope these are useful and that they are in the spirit of this thread.
