Modding:Basics/Helping Out

This page represents a list of needed documentation for modding. Feel free to add to it so that someone from the modding community can help contribute. Please tag any created pages with [[Category:Modding]] to help organize the pages into the Modding space. Alternatively add {{Modding}} to the bottom of the page, which will automatically do that and insert a quick navigation for Modding related pages.

  • Category revamp: It'd probably be easier to use if things were categorized by "systems" instead of what they are; for example, Modding:Object/Lua, Modding:Object/Parameters instead of Modding:Lua/Object, Modding:Lua/Parameters, etc
    Luckily the wiki allows for a page to be in multiple categories so Lua tables could still be accessible via eg. Modding:Lua/Tables or something?
  • Clean up Modding:Lua/Variables: they're missnamed "variables" when it'd more be "parameters", and these pages mix both what the scripts use and what the C++ engine uses

Using the Templates

There are a few templates that are used across all Modding related pages. The primary one being the Quick Navigation feature, which you can access using {{Modding}}, which consists of many .Nav templates. The first one is at Modding:.nav and from there on you should be able to access all of them.
