==About Me==
  
<p>I have a strong computing background, both from my Tertiary Education and from stuff that I've taught myself.  I taught myself to touch type at around age 14, and I taught myself to write html and css in late 2006 - which lead to me doing html/css work for a Web Design company, [http://www.terabyte.co.nz/ Terabyte Interactive], over the summers of 2006 and 2007.  I've also been taught a small amount of C, Matlab and VB at Uni, and done a bit of C++ in my own time.</p>

<p>I bought Fallout 3 soon after its release, mainly in the interest of Modding it. My interest lies in the scripting side of things, but I've dabbled in a few other aspects of Modding before.</p>

I've been involved in modding Bethesda's games since a while after Oblivion was released, but didn't really release much until Fallout 3 came out. At the moment I've released three mods for Fallout 3, but my main contributions to the modding scene have been my scripting tutorials and advice, and my [http://www.cipscis.com/fallout/utilities/validator.aspx Script Validator].
  
<h2>Current Projects</h2>

I plan on contributing to the New Vegas modding community in a similar manner, and have so far released a few mods.
  
<h3>General Scripting Tutorials</h3>
+
My tutorials and validator are all available on my website - [http://www.cipscis.com/ cipscis.com]
  
<p>I've recently finished writing the first tutorial in a series of scripting tutorials, aimed at people who want to learn the ins and outs of scripting in Fallout 3.  The tutorial is currently hosted on several forums, and '''BonzoFSP''' has kindly "translated" it into Wiki markup so that it might be hosted here as well.  Here is the link if you are interested - [[Scripting for Beginners]]</p>

The mods that I've released for Fallout 3 are:
  
<p>I'm currently writing the second tutorial in the series, and am planning on covering the following topics:</p>

*[http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=986 AMPUTATE] - Links certain lootable body parts, like "Deathclaw Hands", with dismemberment
 +
*[http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=3729 CASM] (Cipscis' Automatic Save Manager) - An automatic save manager that allows you to forget about saving without ever having to worry about not having a recent save to fall back on if things go wrong
 +
*[http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=9767 Melee Lock-On] - Allows you to lock on to actors while in melee combat to make it less frustrating at close range.

The mods that I've released for New Vegas are:

Debugging

Common problems that can be difficult to track down.  Will probably be expanded into a standalone document at this rate - kind of a debugging FAQ.

*[http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=36779 Corpse Equip] - A re-write of a mod that I initially released for Oblivion and subsequently made but never released for Fallout 3, this mod allows you to force dead NPC to re-evaluate their apparel, so they won't be permanently naked.

<h3>Syntax Highlighting</h3>

==Contact Me==
  
<p>If anyone's interested, I've created a user-defined language in [http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/ Notepad++] that provides syntax highlighting for scripts in Fallout 3 (automatically detects files with extension *.fo3 as Fallout 3 scripts)Here's a RapidShare download link: [http://rapidshare.com/files/187557781/userDefineLang.xml http://rapidshare.com/files/187557781/userDefineLang.xml]</p>

You can contact me by:
  
<p>I will be updating this syntax highlighter with each successive release of FOSE to include any new functions or keywords.  The latest supported version is FOSE v1.</p>

<p>I've written a Tutorial for creating a multi-level options menu like the ones that I've used in my Fallout 3 Mods - [http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=986 AMPUTATE!] and [http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=3729 CASM]</p>

<p>I've found some pretty odd behaviour when testing different things that doesn't yet have a place in the Wiki, due to the fact that I've no idea what's causing it.  I've recorded these bugs here - [[User:Cipscis/Testing]]</p>

About Me

I'm a 21 year old University student, having just completed the 4th and final year of my BE in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Auckland.

I've been involved in modding Bethesda's games since a while after Oblivion was released, but didn't really release much until Fallout 3 came out. At the moment I've released three mods for Fallout 3, but my main contributions to the modding scene have been my scripting tutorials and advice, and my Script Validator.

I plan on contributing to the New Vegas modding community in a similar manner, and have so far released a few mods.

My tutorials and validator are all available on my website - cipscis.com

The mods that I've released for Fallout 3 are:

  • AMPUTATE - Links certain lootable body parts, like "Deathclaw Hands", with dismemberment
  • CASM (Cipscis' Automatic Save Manager) - An automatic save manager that allows you to forget about saving without ever having to worry about not having a recent save to fall back on if things go wrong
  • Melee Lock-On - Allows you to lock on to actors while in melee combat to make it less frustrating at close range.

The mods that I've released for New Vegas are:

  • CASM:NV - A re-write of CASM for Fallout 3 with very similar features.
  • Corpse Equip - A re-write of a mod that I initially released for Oblivion and subsequently made but never released for Fallout 3, this mod allows you to force dead NPC to re-evaluate their apparel, so they won't be permanently naked.
  • Melee Lock-On - A re-write of my Fallout 3 mod of the same name.
