Apologies for what is going to sound like a nooby post, I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction.
I'd really like to learn how to code, so I thought why not start with something that I can see working on a game I play regularly. I have zero coding knowledge but would like to learn through a small/simple project. Currently, I'm going through freecodecamp and I'm right at the start of it, so my knowledge really is right at the start.
I was thinking of creating a plugin that plays a custom sound file when a new item goes into your inventory. This probably sounds incredibly simple for the pros out there but I would like to achieve this as a first goal type thing.
I've been thinking about what I would need;
- Be able to detect a new item going into inventory, as I don't want it to trigger on old items of the same ID
- Detect item IDs
- Read player inventory
- commands to add/remove items to a 'watch list'
- Read the watch list items (by ID and by name?) that then triggers a saved sound file
- Trigger the sound file
Is there anything else I would need to do think about?
The biggest question I have really is; where would I first start as someone who knows pretty much nothing? I've been looking around the forums but it seems a little too advanced for my stage.
Huge thanks in advance for your kind replies and guidance.
