Topic: Moddinghelper! for the inexperienced modder to make a mod.
All right so I developed a tutorial for making a mod. This package includes notepad++, gimp, and a mod folder with an init.lua, depends.text, and a textures folder.
How to read init.lua: Once you have downloaded notepad++, click the init.lua inside your mod folder. If it says "can't read this" then select "pick a program to open this file". Select notepad++, and it should open!
How to use gimp for textures: Choose a texture from the default to start out with file, open. Next click view, zoom in, then make larger. I use 1600%. Next go to the toolbox, click the pencil, and change your colors with the black and white squares below. Now for the size, go to brush. You should see a circle in the box. Click it, and change it to the smallest circle. Use the eraser tool for transparency.
