Editor: Script GUI
In my opninon, A great addition for post version 1.0.
To be able to create scripts/triggers using GUI. It would make morrowind scripting more dynamic, easier to make and understand.. especially for newbies.
For EXAMPLE, the Script Gui will consist of 3 parts :
If i want a messagebox to appear when i open a chest only when i have a specific item, the script/trigger should look something like this...
EVENT: -<Player> <Opens a chest> \\other events can be <acquires an item>, <kills a unit>, <cast a spell> etc...
CONDITION: -<Chest> opened <equal> to <ChestId> \\equal or not equal
-<Player> has item <Itemid> equal to <True> \\true or false
ACTION: -Create a Messagebox button <MessageboxId> titled <Open>
-Set <ButtonVar1> = LastCreatedButton
-Create a Messagebox button <MessageboxId> titled <Cancel>
-Set <ButtonVar2> = LastCreatedButton
-Show <MessageboxId> for <Player>
-Change the title of <MessageboxId> to <Pick your action>
-If Then Else Multiple Functions
If <Clicked Dialog Button> <equal> to <ButtonVar1>
Then open <ChestId>
Else ...More functions...blabla.. etc. etc..
Also create a global variable editor
Variables can be real, integer, boolean(true or false), race, sound, string, trigger, spells, item, messagebox ... etc etc...
Any thoughts would be appreciated..

Are you familiar with any GUI wireframing tools (I use Balsamiq)? It would be helpful to create a mockup of what this GUI would look like.
im sorry, currently not familiar with any wireframing tools. but if you need a clearer mockup, you can try checking warcraft 3 world editor, and check the trigger editor section. its neat and easy.. that is where i get this idea from. it can also convert the gui into script form.
i can provide you a little picture ([[https://youtu.be/kxG-OHs_u7M]]), but if you are really curious, you should check out warcraft 3 world editor, trigger editor section.
