Dragon Age Toolset: Noob to Pro

How I learned to stop worrying and love the Dragon Age Toolset

The goal of this tutorial is to take a new user of the Dragon Age toolset who is completely unfamiliar with the resources in the tool, and enable him or her to make a new, standalone campaign from scratch. Because of the modular design of the toolset, it can be tough to navigate the different aspects that go into making a module: scripting, building levels, even getting a basic module up and running. In addition, it's difficult to find a centralized location to simply find out what to do and where to do it. If you have no idea what you're doing, this is for you.

Here's an overview of what we'll be going through together on this wiki:

There are a lot of resources on the Toolset, but unfortunately they're scattered around a bit. However, here are some tools that may or may not be helpful to both noobz and proz:

More than just a background tutorial, an introduction to character generation

A list of models, for building levels

The BioWare Forum for Social Users

DA Lexicon, a scripting resource

DA Nexus, a site dedicated to Dragon Age mods
