This is a significant work in progress, but I wanted to give folks a heads up now. FYI, it's about half done and organization might change a bit.
This article should become *the* resource for folks just trying to get into the toolset modding scene. It (briefly) takes them all the way through all the major steps from idea to release. Technically, the actual details on "creation" (as in file edits) will be slim -- that's what other articles are for -- but this article lays out the overall process.
If you think it's something a newbie should know, we want it in this article.
