Willing to start modding/learning to mod.
« on: August 16, 2016, 04:44:53 PM »

Hey guys.
I want to learn modding to add things to the game for this great rimworld comminution, but I can not because I am inexperienced.
I have a few questions about the teach of modding.
Where can you learn best to mod? (Guides / wikipedia / from other modders?) Have you perhaps any advice for someone who has never done anything with modding, but want to learn it and has no experience in any coding :(?

Thank you for your time!  :D

Nvm I have dyslexia, making it difficult to correctly read the guide of modding and because English is not my first language, it is a disaster :(. So I guess I just let it rest until I can find someone who can explain it to me with words instead of that I have read in a guidebook. (Thank you for your help)

A good way to learn is to update an A12 or A13 mod to A14.  See my modder's reference (signature) for details on XML layout.

Hello, for modding rimworld what you need to know is a little xml, and you can do a lot with it, the C# is only for what xml can't do.
if you have a easier time learning with someone speaking try looking for explanations about xml on youtube in your language.

You may need a rubber duck.  Also, try some caveman debugging.

Thank you very much. I will use it even when my friend needs to help me read it but still thanks for this great signature.  ;D
