Morrowind Modding Workshops: Scripted Spells

Date and Time: Monday, July 13  4:30 PM MST (GMT -7)

Where: http://fliggerty.dnsdojo.com/workshops/ ... entry.html

Presenter: Fliggerty

What is this?
We are presenting live modding workshops using a chat format to teach modding methods and techniques.  The goal is to have group interaction to enable everyone to learn exactly what they are hoping to learn, and make the most out of the topic given by the presenter.

The first workshop will have the goal of teaching you how to create any custom scripted spell that you desire.  The project we will work on together will allow you to summon a full suit of armor by casting a single spell.  This armor will remain present and equipped, at the cost of one magicka point every five seconds, until the player either casts the spell again or the magicka runs out.

Requirements:
1.  A basic understanding of the functionality of the Construction Set.  I will not be covering the basics of creating new records and objects.
2.  A general knowledge of scripting; ie you know how to create and compile scripts, how to define a variable, how to use functions, use proper syntax, etc.
3.  Morrowind, Tribunal, and the Construction Set installed.
4.  The latest version of Java.  http://java.com/en/
5.  A web browser and internet connection capable of running Ajax Chat (the same chat client on GHF.)

We intend to hold several of these workshops over the upcoming months.  Hopefully they will help many of you learn a lot of new tricks and gain new ability when it comes to modding.  That is our goal!

Everyone is freely invited to join in, whether you intend to create a mod or not.  There is no cost nor obligation to GHF of any sort (you don't even need to be a member of GHF to participate.)  However, to help offset the costs of operating GHF and all of our sponsored sites, there is a suggested donation of $2.00 for participating in the workshops.  Again, don't feel obligated, we don't wish to pressure anyone.  But it will help a lot, and be greatly appreciated...you will be helping to ensure the long-lasting future of GHF and all of our various endeavors!

Thanks to all who have given support to this endeavor of hosting these workshops!
