ok so I want to get into modding, mapping , and modeling, but don't know where to start or how. just wondering if someone would be kind enough to give some insight.
First you start off with a good idea. Then well usually if you want to start a mod you need to know something and have a part played in your mod. Like in my mod I am a mapper. Now if you don't know anything about modding then you should learn how to map first. Mapping is the easiest part of modding but is still important. Skinning is second hardest, then modeling and coding is by far the hardest to learn. I'm not a coder so I could be wrong but coders are by far the hardest to find to work in your mod. There is other people who you should think about to like website designer, sound designer and a charater modeler. All these things are important if you want a succesful mod.
ok, but what kinds of stuff will help me start mapping(programs, tutorials, apps and such)?
