I mean no disrespect and I give massive praise to whoever went through the time and effort to put this documentation together but honestly it was very confusing for me. I am a self-taught modder and I can go into the CTW scripts and "monkey around" with them and I kinda get the gist of it but it would be nice to have a guide that explains exactly what does what and why, I have tried my best to decipher the CTW scripts on my own but when I look at these guides they really don't shed much light on the subject.
