Greetings Tangos!


First things first: I've absolutely no knowledge about 3D-models in PZ, but I know a few basic things about modding in PZ (or at least where I can look for info 😁)

In order to start modding PZ you should start with the basics, that is script-files for items and Lua for pretty much everything else.

@Fenris_Wolfcreated an awesome beginners guide on github, after you have worked your way through this you should have some basic knowledge.


The next crucial thing in my opinion is getting familiar with the base Lua files and the Java classes PZ ships with.

For the Lua files you will simply need a texteditor to look at, but for the Java classes you will need something to decompile them. Other modders (me included) use JD-GUI for this.


Next steps are: look at other mods that do similiar things that you want to achieve. There are so many awesome mods out there with good written code to look at. These will help you get started.


That are for me the first steps to start modding in PZ. The other modders are very friendly and all chip in to help a fellow modder in need, so don't despair and either use the forum here or go to the official PZ Discord and participate in the modding-channel.
