Find some mods that people have already made, and see if you can figure out how they work. Try to make small changes, and see what happens. In particular, try to decide in advance the kind of effect you want to achieve before making the change, and then seeing if it works or not.

 

Coding, in general, is very practical thing. You can learn as much theory as you want, and it can be useful, but you're only really learning by doing. And while starting a new project completely from scratch could be too big of a challenge when you start, making small changes to something that's already set up should be easy enough.

thanks man, i started editing some and i been looking up tutorials to learn coding structures and still learning more. Appreciate the advice, the only thing i dont really understand are parameters becuase i get a error on saying i dont have enough parameters.
