I've seen so many great mods like redstone, nyanland, oil mod, nuke... so yeah anyway can somone tell me how to download the modding thing if there is one and how to make mods and where to do it because I'm confused and if anyone knows where there are some decent tutorials, please tell me.

If you don't already understand C++ or lua scripting then forget it.
Keep calm and code python^_^

I think that many modders of minetest began the study of lua with writing simple mods

Do the complete opposite mate. I did'nt know shit about Lua scripting the day before yesterday...and already made my first mod, and added more to it! Just took some time, some questioning, and some gosh damn effort!

As for the program to edit the codes, Mr.Cyber, I simply googled "Lua script editor" and found "LuaEditor 2010", works nicely and simple feeling.

Making Minetest mods is easy, yeah. :)
I use Notepad++, it supports a lot of programming languages. ;)

You could simply use Notepad++ like already recommended. It´s a great text editor and supports syntax highlighting for LUA.

Why do you won't someone to make you a mod so badly? Use animal mod and replace the texture. Its real easy.

For Linux users, you can use gedit; its simple and expandable to insanity. For window$, I agree with the Notepad++ choice.

I still haven't dared to try and make a mod but I'm planning to do it.
Minetest is not Minecraft. Stop trying to make them look alike.
