I have written a tutorial for creating scenarios. It's not really perfect, but i think it could be a good starting point for new scenario authors. The last part Tips for testing coroutines is missing right now, but i want to hear some opinions about the general approach.

I am also asking here for proofreading and a feedback, especially i would be glad if a beginner can check the tutorial for understandability. This is a wiki article, so don't hesitate to make appropriate changes face-smile.png

Here is the Scenario Tutorial

A much needed addition, started proof reading, will try it all out soon.


The only way to prevent a mass extinction event is to remove homo sapiens, or stupiditus, from the planet. It may be to late for this final solution though.

Great, thanks! I'll need to find some time to have a look at it.

Are you aware of this guy? https://wl.widelands.org/docs/wl/tutorial/ Maybe the 2 articles can be merged. I'd be OK with having this on the wiki, since it will make contributing easier.

Yes of course face-wink.png I have referred to it, at least to the first two chapters, and later on another chapter of it.

Yes. But the wiki article is currently a bit big at all, whereas it is only scraping some things and leaves the reader to "just do it" without any explanations. A difficult task... Maybe we could strip out the LUA Primer and make a standalone wiki article of it.

I am completely snowed under at the moment - ping me again in 2 weeks if you don't get a review before then?
