If you're thinking of modding for AA then forget it because it's stritly the US Armys domain together with one of the bigger game developers. Unlike retail games like battlefield 2 where you'll find a modders paradise. It depends exactly what you want to mod. I suggest you check out the forums of whatever games you like to play and see if that particular game has released a game editor. If it has you'll be able to do some rudimentary modding. This usually involves making new maps and adding objects that are taken from a library of resourses that you usually get with the editor, or what you can find within the other maps. Like a mix and match. The majority of basic modders probably follow this route. It's the only one that costs nothing but your time. If you want to start adding new models, and what I mean by a model is any object that is added to the map such as a building, things to go inside weapons armour, helicopters, artillary etc etc, you can design them using any 3D modelling program. There are a lot on offer varying from dollars to $1000's, however, many of the games use a particular type of modelling that requires the use of specific modelling programs. The best of these is called 3D Studio Max, which if you want the latest version which is v* it will cost at least $800. You can however buy earlier versions much cheaper. The models built for Battlefield 2 for example are based on using version 5 which I think is available for less than $100. You can alway buy a really cheap one and then convert the files to those used by the more expensive programs, but I'm not really clued up on that area yet. I have a copy of 3D CAD which is an old 3D modelling program that will do the same job but doesn't have the same number of tools to aid in your designs so you basically have to put more work into your models. Whichever game you are interested in, if there is an editor been released you will find forums specific to modding. I do strongly suggest you try these first and start picking everyones brains. Honestly there are a lot of good modders out there that are only to pleased to help anyone that wants advice
No! I'm Spamacus!

If you've nothing useful to say why bother answering. Do you know something I don't?; ie (That is), that you can mod America's Army? I don't think so, but if you can I'd really appreciate it if you'd direct me to a url that tells me about it, rather than trying to be sarcastic to someone who is only trying to help. Does your name indicate what's inside your head? lol P.S. I apologise if I've insulted you. I just hate un-useful comments. Forums are there to help, not to try and be smart. If you're a teenager or younger I'd understand you not fully realisingthe point of a forum, but if you're older try and grow up. P.P.S. With respect to Halo_ruler5 comment, I'm actually trying to work myself up to making some destructable items for BF2 maps, or alternatively produce a few custom maps, which is slightly easier; however with a head full of morphine following a serious road traffic accident several months ago, it's taking me far to long to start. I'm actually writing a review of all the singleplayer maps available for BF2 (as well as one for BFV) which takes most of my time at the moment. It's over 300 pages long and the end is still nowhere in sight. The review includes a more in depth look at each map that has been made for BF2, including 'in game' screen shots and download links for each map. There's an extensive appendix that contains lots of stuff such as system tweaks for improving your computers performance, as well as other useful stuff to enhance the gaming experience for the battlefield series. I'll be uploading it hopefully sometime this summer, to all the main BF2 sites. The main point is to give anyone who enjoys playing BF" and BFV easy access to all maps available, with enough info on each map to give them a better idea as to whether they are going to enjoy the map they are thinking of downloading. (We all have different tastes and to save time from downloading something that you find isn't what you were expecting and having only a dial up that has taken you all day to download....well you get the gist I presume)....sorry for going off the point of the forum lol. (The morphine is to blame lol).

yh no problem going off the point, its just i have edited maps and guns ect on medal of honor and wanted to know if this is possible on AA but as AA servers are charged dont use homebase servers like MOH but domained , therefore dont think it is possible to place mods on the server. thanks for your help any way :)
It aint possible to mod like that well as far as im aware of anyway and even if could i agree with the previous comments stay well away from it. Im in an american army clan and the servers get updated by pb and a few other programs that chacks all the players, ban lists and the map so if u started playing around with that u would soon be on a ban list and you would find it hard to play AA at all. JUST PLAY NORMAL AND ENJOY THE GAME GUYS
I don't spend enough time here

ah to answer the discussion i think i remember some old line in the faq on the site or somwthing....what was it? oh yeah....
"do NOT hack or modify this game in anyway, it could end up in wither a permanent ban or if bad enough LEGAL ACTIOn, cmon now, youre messing with the ARMY!
well that clears it up for me.
