Scripting for Dummies: First Script, Creating an Item

Summary of the tutorial

This is the best intro "scripting for dummies" I have found yet. I did not write this, and do not know where I found it. It seems to be from RunUO, originally. It was written by "David", apparently a RunUO moderator at some time, back in 2004. Anyway I take no credit for this.

It is arranged in 3 parts. First it goes through the steps to create a basic item (a magic 8 ball). Second it adds some double click functionality. Then, third, it adds range checking and a time delay.

A very easy to understand intro to scripting, and he explains every step of the way. It must be simple because even I understood it :)

If this is the wrong place for this, feel free to move it or delete it as needed.

    I have learned more about C# and how to understand ServUO by reading this . Than the countless hours and hours of doing Microsoft tutorials on C#.
    If you want to understand ServUO and enjoy world building, This is a Must read.
