      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

[RELz] Morrowind Scripting for Dummies

File Name: Morrowind Scripting for Dummies

File Category: Miscellaneous


Note: 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 “I†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, Björn, 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.

Yacoby and melian
