      ATTN: Mod Creators:   01/23/2016

      Please update the FIRST post of your topic to include important information about your mods and their progress. Since you follow your topics and respond to them (hopefully anyway) you know what people most commonly want to/need to know about your mod and it's current state/progress. If your information will not fit within the first post of the topic, please contact a staff member and we will make it so that you own the second/third (as-needed) posts are yours as well. Having the most important information in the first posts of the topic will hopefully reduce the repetitive questions asked by having the most important information related to a mod within the first post.

      Signatures   03/04/2016

      Hi everyone. It appears that the update to the new forum has affected the format of the majority of signatures (adding extra spaces, changing sizes etc.). Due to this, could everyone please check their own signature, ensuring that it complies with the site rules. See the http://www.emergency-planet.com/tos.html/ or http://www.emergency-planet.com/topic/16848-acceptable-signature-sizes/ for more information.  We'll give it a few weeks to give enough time to edit signatures, after that the unnecessarily large signatures will simply be removed. Thanks for your cooperation. Regards, EMP Staff.

Looking to start modding

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have decided that I want to try my hand at EM4 modding. I have no prior experience modding and I would like to start. Obviously I will start privately editing another mod such as the LA mod so I want to just start with the basics like adding new calls or changing current ones. I have looked around both this forum and the internet as a whole and have not exactly come across any helpful tutorials and/or tips. If anyone knows of any good tips or tutorials please let me know. If there are none would anybody have any suggestions on where I should start? I'd really like to at some point be able to build a mod or two from scratch and release them publicly but we'll have to see how this goes.

Home is the best place to start with. Your profile picture has a station 61, so that's the set of vehicles you should try to make in the game.

Once you settle on a livery or decal you wanna do, start by editing the textures of the vehicles in the LA mod.

You need to download this unpacked textures set before you can start modding.

Go into paint.net, GIMP or Photoshop and start editing.

I'll definitely start working on that, thank you. In the meantime are there any tutorials out there that show how to edit or add calls/emergencies within a mod?

This video might seem slow paced, but its good for people who arent knowledgeable with computers but want to edit the game's files.
