Since recently there is a MSCI Reference Forum, in which all of the Script Editor (SE) commands are being listed and documented.

Working on it are a number of Community members who are looking to document all of the commands, without exception. This is quite a complex undertaking, so anyone who wishes to assist, is asked to register here. Knowledge of English is essential.

Additionally questions can be posted here on the topics themselves, for example, if there are errors or incorrect information. For general S&M questions, not related to the commands, please use the stickied [Discussion] Generic X3TC S&M questions topic.

Topics themselves may be started, should someone feel that it is appropriate. The topics should be formatted as per this example topic.

Can I suggest a change to the title of this thread ?

Add "Scripters, we need you !" to the title.

Maybe also keep the title up to date with how many commands still to be done.

So maybe "Scripters still needed, 500 Commands still to be done".

The idea being to catch the attention of people who can script. At the moment, this thread isnt very catchy.

My experience is that titles attract specific attention, so adding something about the specific help needed to the title, tends to get a faster response than a generic title. I do this with mods all the time, when I hit something I cant do. Add the specific issue to the end of the mod title, usually attracts an answer.

So if we need Trade commands done for example, putting that in this title might just attract someone who can do them. especially when it gets to the point where only certain small groups of commands are left to do and we need people with experience of them to do the threads.

Just a suggestion.

I have not done any X3TC scripting, but I am a hell of a programmer and "speak" many languages (to computers at least haha).

I would LOVE to get on board with this. I have had several ideas for scripts, simple scripts... like "set the speed that your autopilot flies at" and "set the distance you follow at". Not even sure if that is possible!

Anyways, where do I sign up? I'm even willing to just crash test and debug if that is what is required.

I usually apply my logistics for food or money, but this time I'm willing to work for spaceflies!

I'm not sure if you understood this right: It's not about testing, writing or debugging scripts, it's just about documenting commands.

When it's ready, I'd suggest putting "Script Editor" somewhere in the thread title for casual scriptors (scripters? scriptwriters? :? See. I'm so casual, I don't even know what to call myself.) like me who don't think of Manual Ship Computer Interface when looking for info about the Script Editor.
It *might* save a few regulars from having to answer questions with, "look in the MSCI sticky."

Please do not take my question the wrong way. But are you actually interested in helping to create articles or are you just interested in accessing the forum?
Our current aim is to create and translate articles, so we only want to add users that are able to help. Once we managed to create a certain amount of articles, the forum will be made public. So everyone will be able to read it.
