Python Callbacks

A callback is a special trigger in the game's code that notifies, and sometimes requests information from, the python code when an important event happens. These are used to control gameplay behavior and along with the functions GE:S provides, allow for a great variety of custom gameplays.

Here is a quick list of all gameplay callbacks and their functions. If a return value is not described then there is none.
