    MoreCore Coding Tutorials



    Im creating a series of videos on how to create your own custom MoreCore extension for that RPG system that you really wanna run.
    These videos are targeted at and based on MoreCore however the concepts will be the same for CoreRPG, DORCore or any other ruleset extension.

    In video one we do a little bit of skinning for our new ruleset:

    In video two we start making some basic changes to the character sheet:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0he0jmdDawE

    In video three we start making some actual code changes to the character sheet, adding some extra fields and doing some basic calculations:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiBkE32tgv8

    In video four we setup some Rolls using the new Roll Parameters - watch this even if you dont want to code a whole new ruleset - note that Roll Parameters were improved again after this video was made:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkWJ7RBcq1g

    In video five we dive into some Lua and modify an existing roll to automatically check to hit against the targets AC and another to automatically apply damage:

    My intention here is to build a B/X retro clone called Damned Basic Dungeon and we will go thru the whole process including adding content.

    Attached is the extension code up to the end of video five so you can easily access the source files if you cannot follow it completely from the videos.
    Note that the manager_custom_thac0.lua and manager_custom_dbdamage.lua are contained within MoreCore and not within the extension.

    Very good tutorials. I like how you kept them straight to the point, removing the time sink of typing the code and doing all other extremely interesting things in many coding tutorials, that just waste time and don't contribute with anything.

    PS: You record from the server room?
    The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

    In video six we dive into some more complex Lua and look at OOB messaging so that players can automatically apply damage to targets:

    In video seven we start on the NPC sheet and do some relabeling of current fields, add some new fields and set the NPC to automatically roll HP based on HD if HP is not already set:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyGEi44QDhU

    In video eight we continue work on NPCs and auto-calc the THAC0 value based on HD:
