Manual

Postby sandboxuser123 » October 16th, 2009, 3:06 pm

P.A.S. is a wonderful tool with apparently endless possibilities. Thanks for creating it and giving it away for free.

I can't find any complete tutorials how to programmed goals, triggers, bot AI, inventories etc.

Does a manual exist? The wiki section has a reference guide but no complete tutorials.

P.A.S. needs step by step tutorials to enable people to get to grips with coding the game.

Please help,

Tom

I strongly agree here. Even just a couple step-by-step tuts on how to do some simple tasks would be great. Most of what I've learned personally has been by trial and error. This is a more hands on way to learn but for those trying to learn the program enough to create a project on a deadline this may become an issue. Finding that there's an easier/faster/more efficient way to do things a month later could really cause some frustration.


I understand that the team is busy, so this is just a suggestion to throw into the time line where there might be a free space.

I think what Gr1m means is "Cube 2 SauerBraten"
I do think Clownfish has been working on a few tutorials, and a manual would be nice.
It's very good when the members of the community express what could be added into sandbox.
Almost all of Sandbox's features come from the community itself!

I think doing a book or something is a great idea. However we do currently have a wiki and would love for people to help add to it. Maybe it would nice to get an idea of what tutorials everyone is looking for so I could make a list and make chapters from that list. Take care.

Moved to Sandbox Chat as this is not exactly a tutorial, and therefore doesn't belong in that forum.

How about a tutorial on how to manually import characters, static meshes, behaviors, and animations from different games.

I'm sure there are some compatibility issues with some file types but I heard blender can convert most of these file types
into other file types that P.A.S can read a tutorial on that would be nice.
