Tutorial List and Essential Downloads (especially if you are new to scripting)

TarotRedhandTarotRedhand Member Posts: 1,231
First you need The Guide to Building Volume I – The Aurora Toolset Manual. Why? Because it tells you about the built-in scripting wizard, where to find it and how use it.

Next you need the Lexicon. If you are on Windows you'll want the Offline version. On other platforms you are advised to use the Online version instead. Note that the offline version only covers up to version 1.69 of NwN. See here for a list of all the new scripting commands that EE introduces. All versions contain a wealth of information including tutorials.

Next grab the scripting FAQs (Frequently Asked (scripting) Questions, with answers). It contains well over a hundred of the most frequently "How do I..." questions and supplies answers to them.

Last thing to download (for now) is the LS-TK Script Generator (Lilac Soul’s Script Generator, updated for NWN 1.69)

Finally the tutorials list is to be found here in this pinned thread on the vault.

    The online Lexicon is easy to use and up-to-date. I recommend starting there, regardless of platform.

    There are pros and cons to both versions which are detailed on the project page for the offline version.

    I admire your persistence, but these days it's misleading to keep pushing the out-of-date offline version. Just look, for example, at the sheer number of changes for EE which are only available online.

    We'll have to agree to disagree on this one for the reasons I outlined on that project page. BTW, if you look at my original post you'll see I already posted that link.

    If you prefer video tutorials this is where I learned the basics. It also has a section to teach you toolset so you can familiarize yourself with everything.
