Howdy folks!  As I've been teaching a newcomer to the community some of the basics of modding, it occurred to me that I could turn some of my lessons into tutorials for folks who are interested in doing more wtih FF.  I went ahead and recorded the first one, and you can find it here, if you have any interest:

Feedback is welcome!

Ty, bookmarking this one. To date making mods and maps is my weakest area in this game. I basically suck at the basics.

You're very welcome, SA!  I need to make the next one this week. 

Ha!  "I basically suck at the basics" says the guy who makes all those amazing meshes!  :lol:

Howdy folks, I just uploaded my second tutorial video, which provides an introduction to creating stories with EZScript. I hope it's relatively coherent and that any of y'all who have been interested in telling your own stories might find this useful.  More to come!

Thanks, took a decade to learn anything about textures and meshes for me though, maybe a little more. I also lucked out and happened to be here when RD was so I had someone to teach me how nifs work. Else I'm lacking in every other area regarding FF. I can sort of put objects on maps and figured out how to exploit a glitch or two (preloaded summoner trick), that's about it. Though I also never put the time in like I haven't put any quality time into FX so that's part of it. I always want to try my hand at everything though, making a short even one to two level mod has been high on that list.

Just watched these Benton and learned a lot. Gives me incentive to go back to work on that Fawcett mod I wanted to make. Look forward to the next one.  👍
