Scripting tutorial for Farming Simulator

Post by АНТИКЛАН » Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:27 am

Hello!

I have both a question and a suggestion. Why developers for so many years have not created lessons on the basics of writing scripts for those who are just beginning to learn modding Farming Simulator? For those who want to add to the game not only new models of equipment or objects, but to make more significant changes.

I’ve been playing Farming Simulator for years. And during this time, many ideas have been accumulated to change the game. The simplest of them have been implemented. But due to the lack of information and clear examples of how to work with the game code in general, other ideas cannot be implemented. Disassemble the logic of other modifications when there is no explanation in them is unrealistic.

I think, and I hope to support, that the community needs a tutorial on writing scripts for Farming Simulator for beginners. This textbook should not teach programming as such, but should give the following:
  1. Learn the basics of writing scripts for Farming Simulator.
  2. Learn to use the Farming Simulator API with case studies.
  3. Give answers to the maximum number of questions arising from beginners.
It doesn't matter who creates such a textbook. The developers themselves or experienced community members. It is important that such a textbook should be because it will contribute to the implementation of even more ideas, some of which can improve Farming Simulator even more!

Yes, this is all there but this information is for those who are engaged in the creation of models and maps. There are no details about scripting.

Uh, that entire site is pretty much devoted TO scripting. FS19 scripting-specific info is forthcoming but FS17 scripting info is there. https://github.com/scfmod/fs19_lua/ is reverse-engineering FS19 scripting.

Well, here again. The information has appeared, and no one explains how to work with it. That's why I say that you need a textbook that would teach people who know Lua to create code for Farming Simulator using API and undocumented features.

Patience is a virtue? Supposedly Giants is working on the FS19 LUA docs...
