CS similar editor and mod tutorials?

Post by pekkape »

Is there any editor available for Daggerfall like CS for TES 3-5? I looked everywhere at https://www.dfworkshop.net/ and I also tried to find one with google without any success. All I can find is a model and sprite viewer and that's it at dfworkshop.

Does anyone have any good tutorials for creating mods? Lets say I wanna make a guild or similar?

No there's no construction kit like tool for Daggerfall. It's world is much larger than the other TES games and so is constructed quite differently with regions, locations, blocks etc overlaid on procedurally generated terrain.

There are tutorials for a lot of things and you can find them in the Modder Discussion forum pinned at the top. Tutorial for guild creation is here viewtopic.php?f=22&t=901 and the basics of mod creation https://www.dfworkshop.net/projects/dag ... y/modding/

I'm happy to help guide people with guild mods if they plan out and have a clear idea of how it should work in game first.

That sounds cool. Well I am not sure if I am gonna try it yet. I did a lot of modding for Morrowind and Oblivion and I mod Oblivion every day a couple of hours right now, a project with no end as far as I can see... And when I am done for the day, I play Daggerfell right now.

I do have one idea that is similar to Archeologist's and it might be a guild based on books, the Librarians maybe? Collecting books but that is what I do right now in Oblivion for my current WIP project where the player is meant to build a complete library in the end with one single quest that goes around and around in a loop. https://forums.nexusmods.com/index.php? ... obbit-home

Otherwise there is guilds for everything though in Daggerfall but a Library guild seems missing even if we do have libraries and book stores but maybe they are the big clients for the guild? ;)

There IS a Construction Set style tool for DF Unity, though there's a learning curve and the World of Daggerfall mod that it works with is not 100% ready: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4877
