I've modified a few of the built in plugins to do some things I like, but I'm limited by my lack of scripting skill.
Does anyone know of a resource I could use to learn the Goblin Api?
I started by messing with the samples included in the plugins directory, but it seems to limit the files available in the scripts to specific file types. For example, I wanted to change the Dungeon Room custom tool to use one of my png fillpatterns from a subdirectory of fillpatterns and i could not until I converted it to a bmp and moved it to the fillpatterns root. Other scripts only allow FMP file types, but not different directories. Surely there is a way to access different file types and different directories, but I can't seem to find a clue.
My real goal was to try to make lines that used fill patterns instead of solid colors, but no love. The purpose being to quickly create a dungeon room with lines that look like wall material. Then I would be able to use a rectangle tool that had lines of "wall material" and quickly fill it with a flooring fillpattern to make a dungeon. The current method of solid color lines sort of ruins the look of the map and invisible lines lack the wall effect.
Currently I am copying the shape, converting the fill of the copy to clear, making the line the width I want, and increasing the transparency so the wall is a darker color of the same fillpattern as the floor. It works, but I know I can make so much quicker with a script.
Thanks for any input on finding a tutorial or making the plugin I need,
