How to improve the Modding Tutorial forum?

A couple of years ago I downloaded Jac's Dialogue Tutorial and tried to follow it, but had a hard time to understand about what to do in the CS since English is not my native language it is Swedish.

Now, when I return I still don't understand how to do certain things in the CS and one of those things are dialogue and/or quest with dialogue or without dialogue.

Then I came to think about the modding videos that DEG made a couple of years ago, but it's still hard for me to follow by watching one of his video.

So, I thought why not improve the existing Modding Tutorial forum by updating the existing tutorials with pictures similar to what TESA has in their modding school.

However, to my knowledge TESA doesn't have a large Morrowind modding branch, instead TESA are focusing on Oblivion and Skyrim, especially on Skyrim (I know since I once finished two Basic CK Lessons there over 6 years ago).


Feel free to comment or even suggests ideas of how to improve the existing Modding Tutorial forum.  :smile:

Some Suggestions would be to

Departmentalize the Forum  (sections for each type of Modding)  Models, Scripting, Texturing this would make it easier for modders to navigate and locate specific areas of interest

Update - I have not used this forum, but I did check it out, many of the linked items (example Dave Forster's CS) the links are all broken.  It needs to be updated old links removed and new ones in place, and of course most all of this info is at least 5 or more years old, new tricks have been developed more information has been gained

That's all I got for now

All broken links is not important to fix right now, as GHF now run an outdated version of phpBB 3.0.x, so upgrading the forum first is more important than fixing all outdated stuff across the forum.

My suggestion for the Modding Tutorial forum, however, should be considered as how it could be in the future once Fliggerty decided to upgrade the forum.

Also, having separate subforums for each modding aspect is good too, I suppose.  But not particial as it will increase the length of the forum index, which makes it harder to see almost every forum categories when viewing the main forum index.

There is another method to separate posted tutorials within a subforum and that's to use thread prefixes e.g [Script] - [Quest] - [Dialogue] etc etc in a combination of the topic title like this.

This was my thought as well
