In general, one of our main objectives is to create more tutorials about scripting in Core. For this challenge, create a tutorial about scripting that is designed for the beginning skill level. This is intended for creators that have little or no prior experience in coding.
It is up to you to decide on which scripting topic to cover in your tutorial. Try to choose a topic that you think would be helpful for creators new to programming in Core.
Explain the basics on how to create and save a new script using the built-in editor. If appropriate for the tutorial skill level, consider covering the event log, script generator, script helper, and script debugger tools.
It is helpful if the tutorial covers concepts that are actually useful in real game development. A lot can be learned from a tutorial that shows how to do something useful, and that can be used in an actual game. Avoid creating something that is of little practical value.
Include code examples to explain programming steps. The code should be clear, have well named variables, and should include comments to explain the logic.
Please be sure to explain each context (Client Context, Server Context, etc) that you use.
Provide all the scripts for users to download in Community Content or an editable public game.
Publish a written and/or video tutorial on this topic to the Core forums as per the instructions in your application acceptance message.
Provide tutorial assets (models, scripts, UI, etc) in Community Content or an editable public game, and include a link within the tutorial. This allows creators to open the final project in Core.
Video tutorials must have voice overs in English.
Your work will be judged based on the Judging Criteria.
