Default Mission Editor Scripts library

A list of Lua-scripts for the ME

I thought it would be a good idea to start making a list of all the various Lua scripts for the mission editor that has cropped up but become hidden in all the posts in this section. Would appreciate suggestions, help keeping it up-to-date and maybe even stickied?

Great find! I've added it. It's really difficult to remember and find all the posts and I have only checked the English side...

I know a lot of these scripts depend on dynamically added units- thought I'd link to this post reporting a bug that seems to be causing difficulties:

http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=118708

It looks like they've identified a pretty substantial server side memory leak and I THINK it's pointing at dynamically added ground units.

Just be aware.

Nicely reported bug! Community at its best. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. Meanwhile we do have 1.2.6 that work fine (dual installs FTW!).

Edit: The OP doesn't display properly in Tapatalk for me. Any suggestions for why?
