I've been boring myself with thoughts of making a mod. But find the prospect daunting. What are the best tools to begin with

I have moved this to Ask a modder - modding The topic Mod help is for help with existing mods e.g. installing or running them.

I don't know all the geniuses who made these tools, but they are my heroes...they opened up a world to me that has kept me entertained for 11 years now

My Modding Kit Includes

DC||ED :for quick stripping and editing of missions (cars and people)
Bscriptview 4 and For adding object and scripts to a mission
Mafia World View Editor for moving and duplicating what I added, or duplicating whats already there and editing Collisions
Zmodeler For modifications of models...I am not a modeler...I just fuss with things already made
An ASCII Editor For the real finicky crud
Mafia Text Editor
Mafia Car Value Editor
Mafia Weapons Editor
and a few others but those are the major thing
There are also great references available...Script References Animation References Particle References

and of course data xtractor is a must before you can do anything

My first modification was of the graphics, that was easy and it gave me a thrill that spurred me on

Best Tip.....learn from the existing missions and other modders

everything you need is in the game.....learn it, manipulate it test it

Second Best tip.....always always always back up your work before you make changes

I do believe you can download everything from the Mafia Scene Download Section
