Adding a Command Overview

This is the third in the basic series of Ares coding tutorials.

What We’ll Cover

In this tutorial, we’ll create a goals command that lets you record your character’s goals. Specific topics include:

  • Adding a help file.
  • Adding database fields.
  • Creating the goal command.

What You’ll Need

This tutorial is interactive, so you’ll need the Headwiz character or coder permissions on an actual Ares game. You’ll also need access to the server shell, as this tutorial goes beyond simple tinkering.
