Opening up Automation Let's see what the Scripts do in the game.
Are you missing out on a useful set of Tools?
So should you be using Automated Scripts?
This Tutorial will show you how the Automated Scripts are setup in Automation.

Automation to put it simply is a collection of Scripts that have been compiled into different categories to be used as helpful tools depending either on the situation you are currently in or how you wish to use them.
Most are straight forward and others will have a message when you hover your mouse over the Script.
Some are more sophisticated than others as you will see from the titles.

The Automation Panel is broken down into different columns with each column having a heading title.

The Arrows <- -> work in a conventional way.
1 Arrow -> will only move 1 Script.
2 Arrows -> -> will move Multiple Scripts.

This Tutorial will give you a basic guide how Automation works leaving you to discover and investigate how the different Scripts work when they are enabled.
How useful these are I will leave it to you to decide.
