Several mods are using scripted events now, and several people want to know how to make scripts do stuff, so heres some scripting stuff, to show people how to script. I have made 4 different zip files, that include a map, compiled, and uncompile, and various scripts compiled and uncompiled. Take a look at the description below, and download whatever you want. :) Its not really a tutorial, but a visual aid. When I finish my project, Redemption, I will be writing a bunch of tutorials!
You should probably take a look at this first!
Ever wonder how they put NPCs on the gun turrets, and vehicles (I assume this works with swoops, ATSTs, and maybe even x-wings, and ties... stuff like that) I know for sure it works with the turrets. So, to learn that, download this, its 2 KBs! http://home.ripway.com/2003-11/40395/Gun_script.zip (Many Thanks to Lassev, or I wouldnt know how to do this!
Next, I was browsing the forums at lucasforums JA mapping forum, and someone needed help making a rolling rock (he was making an indiana jones thing...) So, I made this map, the rock falls, and rolls around, and even kills you if it hits you! 10 KB download! http://home.ripway.com/2003-11/40395/rolling_rock.zip
Ever wonder how they made ships fly around in Jedi Academy? This method works with any MD3 Model! I chose the millineum falcon (spelling?) and made it fly away, this script also shows how to add basic sound to your map (I put in engine sounds, because the falcon flys) 6 KB download! http://home.ripway.com/2003-11/40395/shipfly.zip
Ok, last but not least, and one of the most complex scripts out of the 4: I made a cave (I think it looked nice, this is the only map that kind of looks good.. because they are tutorials, and the purpose is to show people how to script) so.. I made a cave, I threw in luke, he walks to the other side of the cave, this script explains walking, I put in kyle, he does a spin kick, that explains animation, I also put in 2 examples of using the force. You can push one rock to other side of the room, and pull the other rock towards you... watch it, they kill you) This is the biggest download of them all, 96 Kbs http://home.ripway.com/2003-11/4039..._animations.zip (this one also has hints about how to move normal brushes)
After Downloading these, you should be able to make a single player level with:
NPCs walking [works in MP!] NPCs doing animations [works in MP!] NPCs using turrets, and possibly vehicles Ships/md3s moving around Normal brushes moving and rotating [works in MP!] Playing scripted sounds The ability to use the force to push or pull objects. [works in MP!]
If you need any help.. post here.
*sniff* they grow up so fast
yeah.. lol, this time last year you were teaching me this stuff... really. This exact time last year!
I can't believe it has been that long. Well, then I was all about scripting, but shortly after I completely dropped it
......then i came.
Why did you drop it? I mean... your good at modelling, you can map, you can skin.. and animate, you could make one of the best Single Player mods in the whole community.
On your own! (only it would take like 5 months)
Oh wow, someone was nice enough to post every single tutorial that I would need for ASI members. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YO..... *Continues thanking forever*
lukeskywalker1Why did you drop it? I mean... your good at modelling, you can map, you can skin.. and animate, you could make one of the best Single Player mods in the whole community.
Are you kidding me? Have you seen the only map I released? Hoth Tauntaun duel? It was the mockory of all the community, and by all the community I mean GothiX, cuz he think he's all the community. The only real skin I released, Blacka Kyle, was concidered incredibly racist, and Maddog, who reviewed the skin practically told people not to download it because it's not only horrible, but also racist. Modeling is where it's at for me I suppose.
Wow.. yeah, I saw the tauntaun duel. Ive seen a lot worse ;) theres only like... 2 black skins in JA. Lando, and Jaden...(I never saw the file)
Hey, whats ASI?
I got another one I made for someone else, it shows how to get ships to fly in MP ;) Ill put it up later.
