PostSubject: How To Make a Book (Beginner)    Tue Feb 14, 2012 4:42 pm

In this tutorial we will be making a new book. You might want to create a
book for Roleplaying purposes, or to put in your new quests and
dungeons.

Follow the simple steps below to make your new book:

1) Open the Creation Kit and Load your plugin file.

2) Go to Items -> Books

3)
As with creating any new item, a good method to do it is to start with
an existing item close to what you want, then duplicate it and edit its
data. Sort the items by name and scroll down to the book named
"Biography of Barenziah, V1". Right click on it, and choose "Duplicate".
Then find your new object copy in the object list, and right click on
it and choose "Edit".

4) This brings up the Skyrim Book Editing Interface. It contains the following field:
ID: This is the internal ID of the object. The player does not see the ID. Choose something descriptive, such as "doomsdayHouse".
Name: This is the name of the book, and what the player sees in his inventory. Name your new book, for example "The Doomsday House".
Weight: This is the weight of the book. Will affect how much a player can carry in his inventory. You can change or leave it as is.
Value: This is the gold worth of the book. Since it is your first book, how about increasing it's value? Change the value to 50.
Teaches: You
can make the book teach a skill or spell when read. Let's choose Skill,
then from the next drop down we will choose "Illusion"
Inventory Image: Ignore
Message Icon: Ignore
Inventory Art: This
field determines how the book will look in your inventory. Make sure to
choose a filename with "Book" in it, as those images have data
associated with them non how the book looks like when you are reading
it. If you choose some random non-book image, the game will not have
information on what to display when opening the book, and you will not
be able to read it.Change this to HighPolyBasicBook07.
Edit Destruction Data: Ignore
Can't be taken: Checking this option to makes it so that a book cannot be picked up - only read at a bookshelf. Leave this unchecked.
Pickupsound: The sound that the book makes when picked up. Ignore for now.
Putdownsound: The sound that the book makes when dropped. Ignore for now.
Scripts - Paypus Scripts: You can attach a script here. This is a more advanced option, and will be covered in the expert tutorials. For now, ignore this.




EDIT: There are no quotations for the "this text will be center aligned" line.
Also for a look at http://www.creationkit.com/Book for a deeper understanding.
Write your book.

5) Click "OK". If a dialog comes up whether to create a new form, click no (for overwrite), then click yes to confirm.

6) Save the Mod and launch Skyrim

7)
Open the console and type "HELP example. "Help Doomsday". Use PgUp to scroll through the output if
necessary, and locate the code for your new book

Cool Type
"player.addItem 002033BC 1". Replace "002033BC" with your own code. The
number "1" is the quantity, in this case you are giving yourself a
single copy of the book.

9) Open the book and read it. See that
it increased your skill (if that's what you chose) and check the
formatting and pagination.

The text formatting should work for all written items; also if you want your letter to be delivered by a courier, you need to script that event into the game. Meaning: you need to know some papyrus.

If you cannot enter the tutorial through the link, then you should go to tutorials-> creation kit tutorials-> scripts/papyrus and you should find it there. Good luck on your scripting if you choose to learn. :]
