>> Improved Console

An NVSE plugin. This mod requires xNVSE 6 or above.

>> Description

The console in Bethesda games is amazing, but has some pretty annoying limitations. For example, it is up to the person who created the command to determine if it should print it's result value or not. This means that a huge percentage of the commands available to use for scripting are useless in console and can't be used and tested during gameplay as they never print.

  • Want to run GetModelPath on that selected gun you just found during gameplay? Not possible as nothing gets printed.
  • Want to see a list of all the factions a character in-game is in? Sorry, you'll just have to open GECK, put the command in a script and restart the game to see.

With Improved Console, this is a non-issue. Improved Console makes scripting and prototyping a lot more convenient.

Improved Console unlocks the in-game console so that every function prints it's result value. It supports functions that return numbers, forms, strings and arrays and prints the results out in a clean, formatted manner. It is comparable to the Chrome developer console for JavaScript, CLING interactive interpreter for C++ or the Python shell, except now for Obscript. For more information, read up on REPL on Wikipedia.

>> Scripting inside the console

Improved console enables you to be able to define variables inside the console, as if it was a regular script inside GECK. It also includes full support for NVSE type variables (array_var and string_var). Simply define the variable (i.e. enter "int myInteger"), then assign it and use it in the next commands (i.e. "set myInteger to 14" and "someFunction myInteger").

int iVar
set iVar to -14
abs iVar ; should print "(float) >> 14.0"

string_var svStr
let svStr := "hello world"
svStr[1:4] ; should print "ello"


You can enter any valid script expression into the console and it will evaluate the expression and print out it's result. For example any math expression will be valid.

5 + 5                 ; will print out "10"
GameYear * 10         ; will print out "22810"
1 * (GetArmorDT ArmorCombat) * (GetAttackDamage WeapHuntingRifle) ; will print out "780"

>> Scrolling the console with the scroll wheel

You can already scroll the console using PageUp and PageDown, this mod will enable scrolling with the scroll wheel too as an extra feature.
