Collection of Game Modding Tools, Tutorials and Resources
Everybody likes videogames, and the best ones have a fair share of creative geniuses who want to develop their games or just want to mod their favorite one for a richer gaming experience. This time, I will be specifying some great tools that you can use for modifying your favorite video games.
Mod or modification is a term generally applied to PC games, especially first-person shooters, RPGs and real-time strategy games. Mods are made by the general public or a developer, and can be entirely new games in themselves, but mods are not standalone software and require the user to have the original release in order to run. They can include new items, weapons, characters, enemies, models, textures, levels, story lines, music, and game modes. They also usually take place in unique locations. They can be single-player or multiplayer. Mods that add new content to the underlying game are often called partial conversions, while mods that create an entirely new game are called total conversions and mods that fix bugs are called unofficial patches.
