Tutorial

The tutorial that you placed on the Enable page doesn't have anything at all to do with that page, so I've moved it here for now:


The above page didn't really help me, I had a lot of trial-and-error creating objects that appear only when you do a specific action. For instance: A trophy getting added to your Megaton Home when you get acquire and achievement, so I'm going to write a tutorial for that: 1. You're going to want to make an xmarker, these can be found in World Objects -> Static, tick the "Initially Disabled" box 2. Change the "Reference ID" on the xmarker by double-clicking the XMarker you placed. 3. Create the object you want to enable when you do a specific action (in this case, getting an achievement) 4. Double click the object you just placed and scroll over to "Enable Parent" 5. Click "Select Reference in Render Window and select your xmarker, if you want you can do the same for other objects, those objects will also get enabled once your first prop does. 6. Go to ActorData and select the quests and select the "Achievement Quests", if you look a little below the questID box you'll see a "..." button next to the script name, click it. 6,5. I personally just make another script and copy/paste the Achievement's script into it to avoid conflicts with other mods. If you want to do that you have to create another quest, tick the "Start Game Enabled" box and select the script from the drop-down menu. 7. In your new (or old) script find the achievement you want so that when you earn it you enable your prop, if you don't know what achievement does what you can check [1] for a full list, note that you won't find any quest-achievements here, I'll get on that subject later in this tutorial. 8. I'm going to use the "Slayer of Beasts" achievement here, where you have to kill 300 beasts, this is the OLD script:

;Slayer of Beasts
If CreaturesKilled == 0
	If GetPCMiscStat "Creatures Killed" > 299
		AddAchievement 42
		Set CreaturesKilled to 1
	endif
endif

This is the new script:

;Slayer of Beasts
If CreaturesKilled == 0
	If GetPCMiscStat "Creatures Killed" > 299
		AddAchievement 42
		Set CreaturesKilled to 1
                [YOUR XMARKER'S REFERENCE ID HERE].enable
	endif
endif

Don't use the "[ ]" in your script.

9. Okay, let's say you want something to enable once you complete ANY quest, can be official or your own, or even someone else's with his permission, repeat stages 1 through 5 here, 10. Go to ActorData -> Quests and find the quest ID you're looking for, if you know the in-game name of the quest but not the ID scroll a little to the right untill you come to the "Name", find your quest here, be sure not to click the "Dialogue, Fin etc." versions of the quest. 11. Go the the "Quest Stages" tab of that quest and click the final stage of the quest, these are generally near the bottom, if the quest has the "Complete Quest" box ticked, that's the final stage, some multiple-choice quests have 2 stages with the complete quest box ticked, go over to the "Result Script" box and click "Edit" 12. Find the "addachievement XX" line and put your "[xmarker reference ID here].enable" right under that.

And you're done, I hope this helped in any way!

Please note that, as this is a Wiki, you should not sign content that you have created in this way, as it implies ownership and discourages others from editing it.

I'd like to add that although the tutorial doesn't fit the Enable page it is helpful and should get a permanent place on the Wiki. Just create a new page by navigating to it with your browser and paste the content there, for example Initially Disabled Objects Tutorial or Toggling Objects Tutorial. We'll take care of linking it to other pages, you don't have to worry about that, but you're welcome to add links to existing pages of course.
The signature is something you'll have to remove though, as Cipscis mentioned it's not appropriate on a Wiki. If you do insist on keeping a signature on the tutorial you should host it elsewhere, the article database of Fallout 3 Nexus is a good place. You're free to list the page here on your talk page as a page you've written though.

I want to further add that this was a really helpful tutorial for me and I wish it was easier to find for others on any page, its not very easy to find moved to the talk page of a user.

Vendor tutorial

Hi, the vendor tutorial you placed on the ShowBarterMenu is perfect as standardized snippet (short common instruction). I moved it here: Creating a new vendor. Just letting you know.
