Reference Editor ID in the (old) CS
I have some questions to understand the new scripting language.
In the CK you could make an persistent reference by using the Editor ID and activating the Persistent Ref option.
How do I do that now?
For example I place a unique NPC with a Reference Editor ID in the editor. How can I now reference to him in, let's say a script attached to an item (not in NPC inventory), since there are no persisent references?
Now for quests. I read the alias tutorial. I have a hard time to understand something there. If I have various quests that basically never stop and the scripts in them also should never stop, imo, it is easier to do that with persistent reference and use it inside the quest script like in the CK. Because alias won't be useful in this scenario. As the alias would never end. Wouldn't it conflict if two quests and two aliases on the same unique NPC are in effect?

- Unless the quests are applying conflicting scripts on the npc, multiple aliases to the same unique NPC are fine, and in fact, is done numerous times by the game itself without modification. A great example would be Delvin Mallory of the Thieves Guild, who can have aliases from the Dark Brotherhood quest line, The Litany of Larceny, and one of his small job Radiant Quests all at the same time, and that's only considering quests that you actually see in the journal, and even then there's probably the possibility of a few more.
