    LScript Documentation

    A big one for me, and I don't think I'm alone here, would be better LScript documentation.

    Essentially every command that is available, fully documented with the inputs (if any) it needs and the outputs the command gives, written in an easy to understand (non-coder speak) format, along with an example for each one.

    Yeah, i second that

    I would second that matt. I for one would love to get into LScript, but there is poor documentation for an LScript newbie and like you said preferably in non techie speak.

    The LScripts are indeed being completely revised, and there is already a section for discussion of the LScript Documentation -

    LScript Documentation Forum

    Please post your requests and comments on LScript Documentation there. I'll clone the thread to that forum, and lock the version here off.
