New Theme Set Up 11/14/2017We have a new theme created by Vincent that's now available to everyone. It has been set as the default theme, so everyone should see it when you refresh the page. If you still aren't seeing it, you can select it from the Theme drop-down at the bottom of the page. It's called Assimilation. Thanks Vincent. Awesome looking theme!
By AndalayBayThe Complete Guide Lite is a guide to the Construction Set by Indigo. The first couple of chapters are basically a tutorial on creating a house and populating it with an NPC. In some cases, I have found it easier to follow than the Mod Maker manual since it uses a specific task to explain the various sections of the CS and it has lots of pictures. It is meant to be followed from beginning to end, so it doesn't have any bookmarks or table of contents. I created the following table of contents manually.
Chapter 1 - Construction Set Basics
Chapter 2 - Build a house
Chapter 3 - Create a new race
Chapter 4 - Lighting
Chapter 5 - Finishing Touches
Chapter 6 - Landscape Editing
Chapter 7 - Dialogue
Chapter 8 - Scripting
Chapter 9 - Sounds
Chapter 10 - Regions
Chapter 11 - Classes
Chapter 12 - Birthsigns
Chapter 13 - Factions
Chapter 14 - Magic
Chapter 15 - Leveled Lists
Chapter 16 - Books
Chapter 17 - Weapons
Chapter 18 - Alchemical Reagents
Chapter 19 - Armor
Chapter 20 - Clothing
Chapter 21 - Rest of the Object Window
Chapter 22 - Creatures
Chapter 23 - Path Grids
Chapter 24 - Gameplay Settings and Construction Set Settings
Chapter 25 - Troubleshooting
That might look impressive, but many chapters are a single page that just shows the dialogue box and explains the settings. That's still helpful, but you aren't going to get a major explanation on some of the elements of the CS. The chapter on scripting just directs you to GhanBuriGhan's Morrowind Scripting for Dummies, which is available for download here.

By brucomsNote: I (brucoms) was not involved with the creation or updating of Morrowind Scripting for Dummies. I am merely creating a mirror for the resource here on The Assimilation Lab. Permission was granted to do so by Yacoby in this post.
There are two versions: a PDF, and a Word file. The Word version is for those of you who would like to expand upon the guide.
You can also download Morrowind Scripting for Dummies from here at the Nexus.
The most extensive guide and reference to Morrowind Scripting.
--Foreword to the ninth edition--
Another update, this time by more than one person, now you can get really confused when it mentions that â€œIâ€ did something or found something *grins*. Although this update was intended as a bugfix, a huge amount of new information has been added - since much of it concerns the bugs and pitfalls of the scripting language that have been discovered since version 8, you will find changes and additions scattered throughout.
I have also added a couple more functions that were missing from the last version, and there is a small section on script extenders to give a brief overview of what can be done with each which should hopefully prove informative to anyone wanting to know more about what they do. Galsiah proveded a large section on the failings of get/mod/set stat; there is a lot more info on dialog and how it works, which should be very useful; a short explanation of float values and how they work has been added; some sections have been rearranged for clarity; and I think I've removed all the en dashes and typographer's quotes from code blocks, so it should be safe to copy-paste most of the example scripts now.
Special thanks go to GhanBuriGhan, who gave me permission to update his indispensable guide. Also thanks to Dave Humphrey for his permission to use the information on UESP wiki, and everyone who contributed to that wiki. I would like to thank exclusiveor77, DinkumThinkum, BjÃ¶rn, abot, Galsiah, Casey Tucker, cyran0 and JOG for the huge amount of information they gave me on the forums.
However without the help of the rest of community, everyone who collected all the information, posted their experiences, this guide would have never happened.
