So I've found a Lua plugin for VS that adds intellisense, debugging, file management, syntax highlighting, and a few other random things here and there. By default the plugin was made to only work for the Pro and Premium versions of VS, but because the project is open source and under the MIT license I did a quick hack so that it can work with all the versions, and now I'm sharing it here for you all to use!
The plugin is called BabeLua and unfortunately doesn't have the greatest quick start guide, so I'm going do a little crash course here on how to set it up.
Original BabeLua site: http://babelua.codeplex.com/
My modified BabeLua plugin: http://www.mediafire.com/download/71eg3 ... rsion.vsix
Visual Studio Community 2013 page: https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/prod ... ty-vs.aspx
Lua binaries: https://code.google.com/p/luaforwindows ... e&can=2&q=
Hope this works for everyone and that it augments their modding experience!
