Im trying to make a house to send in for Cobar. I have no clue what im doing.... I can change the lightning, add items like beds and chairs, change the sounds, and.... thats about it.

I need to know:

1. How to edit the room, or are walls and tables forced to be a certain way? Say I want to add another room... or a closet... or make the room non-rectanglar. How would I do that?

2. How do I add an exit or entrance door?

3. Well lets just focus on 1 and 2, but if there is anything else I should know, post it here.

Click around a LOT. You can also change the dimensions of the map under one of the menus. That's the thing to remember: if you started off with only a 2x2 house, then you can't just "add on" other rooms. You give the toolset a set of dimensions, like 5x5 or 2x6, then work within that.

I learned by starting with maps slightly bigger than I needed, and just -- seriously -- clicking around with the mouse A LOT. In other words, EXPERIMENT! icon_smile.gif

As far as adding doors and such, first make a doorway (under terrain), then find the door you want (under placeables - erm, I think).

Sorry this isn't better advice, I'm at work right now, but seriously, you'll find it all, just look around.

maelstroms right, just arse about alot first. If youre going to start scripting however, better to get a tutorial or something. NWN main site has some good reliable basic toolset tips tho.
