Advice for Beginners
Heres some words of advice for those who mod.
For Just Beginners:Start out with editing mod menus and gametypes, give credit if you release your edits, but get to know how the scripts are and ways for syntax errors.
For people who edit:Start making your own scripts now that you know how scripts are ran by with the variables such as i, and make them useful to your menu so you can give credit to yourself, and make a better mod.
For people who make scripts:Start trying out to make gametypes so that you may get to know how the scripts are made and use your threads for the proper spawning time such as OnPlayerSpawned and more.
For people who make gametypes:Work on making either your own menu or have a long time thought of a good gametype to be made. Most hackers look for a good gametype they can put in their menu like chaos dogs or ghost vs humans. You want to make sure its big enough to satisfy the attention span of either the 13 year olds or the 16 year olds who play the game.
For people who are releasing:When you release you must give credit, even though you made everything, you should go ahead and also give credit to yourself to show what you had to do or go through in order to make the mod come to life.
For those who get script compile errors:Make sure you do one script at a time and see that you put your semi-colons to make it work, and make sure you don't have anything missing. Also to prevent, try to use a syntax checker, also one made by Kazzababe
For Credit Stealers:Don't be credit stealing for when you credit steal, nobody will use your mods, and no modder will trust you with anything for the fact that you will take credit for ones hard work. Avoid that and show credit for what people have worked hard to make what happen work.
