Modding Tutorials?

Post by FortCraftCoder »

So, I'm new to modding and I'm wondering how the authors of mods (like bobmods) learn how to do this advanced modding. Are there any tutorials, templates or documentations for factorio modding? It would really help. :)

There's a modding tutorial on the wiki. Read that first. First link on the documentation page for the lua api.
Then make some simple mods and work your way up and ask people how to find out how to make stuff when you get stuck.

Why is this a poll?

My advice would be to search for a mod that does a similar thing to what you want to implement. It’s extremely helpful if you got some kind of example to work with.
Mods: Shortcuts for 1.1, ick's Sea Block, ick's vanilla tweaks
Tools: Atom language pack
Text quickly seems cold and unfriendly. Be careful how you write and interpret what others have written.
- A reminder for me and all who read what I write

I want to see which method is the most used.
