    Been thinking of making a mod or something for the original fallout games. What should I read/learn before doing so? I've never developed anything game related before and I'd like to give it a try.

    Easiest step at the beginning is to install the mapper and just click some stuff together. After that you can try to add that location into the game. If that's working out, you can continue with scripting tutorials.

    People under estimate the amount of time needed to build stuff in Fallout, proceed only if your mentally challenged. >_>
