Week 1- Basic mod making and saving
Alright, first lets fire up Toribash, once it has loaded go into a singeplayer game
Now we have to load up worldbuilder, type "/ls worldbuilder.lua", you should see the ground turn gray
Before we make any objects, we should open up the pallets, press "C" "F" and "M"
You should see this on the left side of your screen:
The flags will change the properties of the selected object, we don't have any objects made right now, so they aren't in use (see list of flags at bottom)
Mass changes the "weight" of the selected object, the lowest mass you can make in worldbuilder is quite heavy, but lets not worry about this now
The color pallet changes the color of a selected object, the white controls the transparency, have all colors at once to make black, none to make white (or invisible)
The controls for Worldbuilder are mainly on the numpad, so when I say press 7, don't press above the U. etc.
To move the objects left and right, you press 4 and 6, up and down is 7 and 1, and back and forth is 2 and 8
To make an object bigger or smaller, you hold 0 and then 4 or 6 to make it larger left or right, or hold 0 then 7 or 1 to make it bigger up and down, etc.
To rotate an object hold the . then 4 or 6 to rotate it side to side, hold . and 7 or 1 to rotate it up and down, etc.
Press 5 to change object type from cube to sphere to cylinder
You can change how many spaces the object moves or grows or rotates each time by pressing capslock, this sometimes doesn't work and you need to fiddle around with it
Making and editing objects
Press * to make a new object, when you make a new object, this will show up in the right side of your screen
(Tell me if you need help understanding this)
Change the size, color and rotation a bit, and place it where you want
One object is no fun, lets make another, duplicate by pressing p
Moves this object where you want, change the color size and rotation too change the shape type if you want too, heres mine:
Remember that worldbuilder only displays object holograms, the players can not interact with them, and the objects will appear slightly transparent.
Saving and Playing
Time to save the mod, hit enter twice and start typing out the mod name
You should be typing in the text box in the middle of the screen, not the normal one for mp chatting
You must save your mod with a .tbm eg: tutorialmod.tbm
Hit enter to save, once your mod it is saved, it will be put into the toribash scripts folder, take it out of scripts and drag it into the mods folder(Tell me if you need help on this)
Once the mod is in the mods folder you should be able to load it in toribash, but first unload worldbuilder by typing /ls unloadscripts.lua
Play around with your mod, this is how mine came out:
(Kiss is censored)
List of Flags functions
Static: Makes the object stay still, it can not be moved
Instagib: object dismembers anything it touches
NoGrab: object can not be grabbed
You can combine any and all of these to make interesting objects eg: A nograb instagib cube
delete-Deletes selected object
*-creates new object
p- duplicates current object
7,1,6,4,8,2 Moves object
0+7,1,6,4,8,2 Changes object size
.+7,1,6,4,8,2 rotates object
NUMBERS AND SYMBOLS ARE FOR THE NUMPAD
Post if you have any questions/problems
Post your newly made mods please!!
