    Introduction
    This tutorial is about how to make quests. It will tell you how to make a quest in the quest menu and then get a bit more advanced to the end.

    Creating a quest in the Quest Menu
    This is a very simply trigger to create a quest in the quest menu. However it will get a bit more advanced when you need to mark it as completed, failed or so on. Heres the basic trigger for creating a quest in the quest menu.

    • Quest
      • Events
        • Map initialization
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • Quest - Create a Required quest titled Quest with the description This is a quest, using icon path ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\BTNAmbush.blp


    Part Two
    Well that was a very basic trigger for creating a quest in the quest menu, now were gonna get a bit more advanced. Now for the second part we are going to add a variable. Go into the variable manager and create a new quest variable. This will store the quest data rather then creating it. This step is esenctial if you want to change your quest later on in the game. Here is the trigger:

    • Quest
      • Events
        • Map initialization
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • Quest - Create a Required quest titled Quest with the description this is a quest, using icon path ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\BTNAmbush.blp
        • Set Quest = (Last created quest)


    So just after adding one more trigger we can now edit our quest later on in the game. Now were going to look into how to mark quests failed, completed and ect.

    Completing, Discovering and Failing a Quest
    This part of the tutorial will tell you how to mark a quest completed. This is the trigger for that:

    • Quest
      • Events
        • Map initialization
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • Quest - Mark Quest as Completed


    Pretty simple isn't it, heres the one for failing a quest:

    • Quest
      • Events
        • Map initialization
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • Quest - Mark (Last created quest) as Failed


    Now as for Discovering a quest the events and condition will change, however heres what the action would be:

    • Quest
      • Events
        • Map initialization
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • Quest - Mark Quest as Discovered


    Now for the three above triggers you can add text messages, or do whatever you want to. And the event will probably be changed.

    Quest Examples
