Default I want to make a mod.

I am at most a beginner at modding. I need some help/advice in just making a fully-fledged mod for the game. I am a total beginner in programming, I can only remember making lua say "Hello World!" I have a bit of experience map making, and I only just started with drawing sprites.

The wiki has tutorials and information for most modding stuff, although some of it is probably still a tad out of date with how recently 2.2 came out.

Yeah, that's kinda why I'm asking here. I also ask because the mod I want to make is kinda big.

Don't start with a big mod—set smaller goals for yourself, and learn what you need to do to achieve them. Being ambitious is fun!! But if you overestimate what you're capable of seeing through to the end, you might not get to finish. Ideally, you want your mods to be complete and playable by others first and foremost!

If you really don't want to reference the wiki yet (you're missing out!), I suggest watching SeventhSentinel's Zone Builder tutorials, making a short 30-60 second long map, and releasing that to have a completed product under your belt and potentially receive helpful feedback from others.

Some actually serious advice, however. You do not want to start with a "fully-fledged mod for the game", but instead something smaller. A character, a stage or two. Start small. Big gigantic magnum opus level packs are rare. (and even rarer to get a quality one)
It's a long, tedious (and hella rewarding) process, and I wish you luck.

I killed a few posts in this thread, but as a reminder: do not respond to useless garbage like CyberKnux's post. It's way easier to infract and ignore if nobody replies to it.


Also, for the OP: starting small is the only successful way to go. Absolutely everyone who starts large does not succeed for various reasons. If you want to make something big over the long term, it's best to make a bunch of smaller things and merge them together later.

shit. I accidentally deleted the whole post instead of just the part I wanted to be deleted.

Summarized: Lach, thank you, I will probably make a map first. Mystic, thank you too, I should think about making the gardens first just as a little map mod by themselves before thinking about such a big project.
