    I want to start making stuff in LUA, such as weapons. Where do I start? Do I use notepad? How do I do stuff???? I have tutorials on Garrysmod.com, but I just have no clue where to even start. And what order do I script them in? Sorry I am VERY new. Thanks in advance.

    wiki.garrysmod.com
    www.lua.org/pil
    (I think are the right links)

    Go there. Familiarize yourself with lua. Look at other scripters' stuff.

    Use notepad++, it's never failed me. However if you really want, you can use notepad - it's just a terrible coding environment.

    For starters use Notepad++.

    I would then go and print out all the pages in the Lua documentation , or save it to a folder, become familiar with it. If you have a external HDD I would put save all of the pages on there onto your external hdd. It will take up about half a gig.

    If you want to PM me I will upload all of it so you don't have to Ctrl + S every page.

    If you know how to code a different language already, I recommend just going to garrysmod.org, downloading random stuff and analyze the code, then go to http://wiki.garrysmod.com/?title=Lua_Tutorial_Series
