Ultroman Posted March 9, 2020 Share Posted March 9, 2020 (edited) Here's my collection of good threads/posts with great content, either explanations or code snippets. You will also find many other tutorials by following the links in the Forum Subsections paragraph below to the other tutorial collections on the forum. I keep adding to this list in a text file on my computer anyway, so I might as well keep the list here for everyone to peruse. Klei ppl: It would be awesome if this could be put in a state where it did not get archived, so I can keep updating it. UPDATE: Thanks for the pin, @JoeW! >> Link to the Newcomer Intro Post <<The Newcomer Intro Post has a lot of basic information you need to start modding, plus a bunch of great tips, for example about how to debug your mods and how to search the forum effectively. Also contains links to various other resources, some similar to this thread, where you can find even more great information, albeit most of it is older than most of the things in this post, but there is still a lot of great information to find. If you're making your first player character, start by looking at the first 4-7 links in the "Player Character Stuff" section below AFTER you've been through the newcomer post. 2021 update: It has come to my attention, that the tutorials are slowly being lost to automatic archiving on the forums. Since only pinned posts and those in the "Tutorials and Guides" section seem to stay alive, I'll start converting the scattered posts into actual tutorial threads, starting with the oldest ones. Many of them need a dusting, anyway. Forum SubsectionsDS "Tutorials and Guides" SectionDST "Tutorials and Guides" SectionLink to Recezib's excellent "Guide to getting started with modding for DST (and a bit for DS, as well)" post, similar to the newcomer post, but with MANY more details. I can't guarantee that all the information in there is up-to-date, though, since the post is from December 2014 and links to other posts just as old.Link to Cheerio's old, but still good, "Guide to getting started with modding for DS" post, again similar to the newcomer post, but with many more details. I can't guarantee that all the information in there is up-to-date, though, since the post is from 2013 and links to other posts just as old.
