A-Red's Advanced Scripting Tutorial

by A-Red of The Onyx Warlords

When I help other mapmakers figure out how to script something, the problem always seems to come down to a lack of understanding of three of the most complex map actions in Loathing--The GEOM, the MOMA, and the MUNG. Pretty much all advanced scripting revolves around these three actions or some combination of them. But unfortunately, the Loathing documentation doesn't even give any sense of what these actions are really for, much less explain how to use them effectively, and no scripting tutorial I've read has provided much of an explanation either. So I've written one that does.

Hopefully, this will open all of the remaining doors for intermediate scripters.
