FormList

From GECK

The FormList object is a list of other forms (base objects). Other objects can use these lists for a variety of purposes. The most common is a list of objects that can be used to repair an object.

FormList Dialog

  • ID: Unique identifier for this form list.
  • Type: Type of object.
  • EditorID: The ID of the form.

Editing Form Lists

This can be puzzling at first because right clicking in the Form List does not pop up a 'New' option like most other lists in the GECK. Instead what you do is drag and drop object from the Object Window to the list. You can then select an object in the list and press the Delete key to remove it (this only removes it from the list, it does not delete the object from your mod). The << and >> buttons at the bottom of the screen allow you to order the list however you want, which can be helpful when using Form Lists to keep your mod organized.

Notes

  • Form lists are required when using Armor Add-ons.
  • Form lists can also be used in place of Ammo entries for Weapon items.
  • If using a form list in a condition that runs continuously (such as on an Ability Game Effect), it may be useful to optimize the list, by sorting the most frequently check items to the top of the list. If the list has 60 forms in it, and the forms usually checked for are at the bottom of the list, the game has to check every entry above those forms every time the condition runs. In most cases, though, this effect will be minimal.
