 Hi everyone Hi everyone
  
-Whenever I go to the chat box, or spend a few moments on the forum, this question is asked over and over : "How do I make mods" ? Then we all reply : "Look on the forum",​ "​Search",​ etc. After looking around, I realised ​that there weren'​t any tutorials that would introduce the newcomers to modding. There are some tutorials that will show you how to count nodes, add a front-loader,​ change the .xml a bit, model a tire thread, etc, but no big tutorial that will help the new modder to find the right software for him, and how to set up his project properly to be able to work in good conditions. ​+Whenever I go to the chat box, or spend a few moments on the forum, this question is asked over and over : "How do I make mods" ?

 A lot of members and modders of Ls-Uk are using one of those two, once you get the hang of it you can do everything you want, thousands of free tutorials to learn how to use them properly. ​ A lot of members and modders of Ls-Uk are using one of those two, once you get the hang of it you can do everything you want, thousands of free tutorials to learn how to use them properly. ​

 Thanks to peterstewart2345 for the informations about Cinema 4d ;) I wouldn'​t recommend it since it's less popular, less tutorials then let's say blender or max, but it's a very complete tool to use if you know how to, and have the money for it ! Thanks to peterstewart2345 for the informations about Cinema 4d ;) I wouldn'​t recommend it since it's less popular, less tutorials then let's say blender or max, but it's a very complete tool to use if you know how to, and have the money for it !
