I downloaded the new mod tools and it Stinks! this is the first time i downloaded mod tools and i thought it was going to be cool and i was going to make my own necron mod. but noooooo. i have to be an idiot. only a video game designer with a master's degree could understand this crud. i opened various programs, everything is blank and this one screen loads and it looked like wordpad without the toolbar at the top and it had a black background. these mods were made for people who graduated from college in computer technology or something cause someone like me needs mod tools that a 2 year old could understand. so i give it a -100/10 because i dont understand it. for those of you who make successful mods with this thing and succede in understanding these dropdown tool bars and all that junk,...... well then more power to ya.

well, basically, a mod ain't just a small modification just for fun... or we'd be overwhelmed by various (and stupid) mods. Let the ones who dedicate to modding work on that, they do it quite well and keep improving... or learn the hard way like they did.

If you don't like the new mod tools, keep it to yourself. You don't even have a question, it's just complaining. That helps no one. If you want to learn how to use them, go check at the Relic site and forums. If you still have questions after that post here.

Also, the blank "wordpad" window is most likely the debug window. You don't have to do anything on that. Another window opens up and you work on that.

The tools work fine for me but, when I go into WA Game Manager to run the mod to see how it looks so far, it fails to load. Does anyone have any ideas on what is wrong?:(

ghost wind, when you say "keep it to myself", maybe you should look before you type and you would realize this is in the rants and raves section. if your going to boss somebody around, go somewhere else and do it

yea dedshaw dose have a right to thread this in here, thats what rants & raves is for. ded if your new to moding u'v got some work ahead of u, the best thing would be to try just doing some simple stuff with the AE, changing unit sizes, attributes & that kind of stuff or make some maps.

Oops. Sorry. I didnt check the forum I answered on. Like everyone said, you may want to check the Relic forums for tutorials on how to use the tools. When I got into using them, I knew nothing about modding. But there are plenty of good sites that will show you how. It just takes a while to understand...

Personally, i would rather just wait for the other people to finish the mods. They are better at it than i am, and i would probably do a crappy job anyways. Besides, who needs mods when you have *IMAGINATION* :D
