This .zip file contains a step by step guide to modding in Mod Pack Studio 2.0.
You might wonder,"Why another modding guide?" There are other guides, but I wanted to make a step by step guide that included screenshots. It is needed and will be a great help to new modders. It includes about 40 screenshots, and explains things in a way that is easy to understand.
This is 'Part I Modding Static Objects.' Static objects means anything in the game that doesn't have animations. The tutorial explains - in simple terms - exactly how to mod. It does this by making an actual mod during the tutorial.
Anyone that is new to modding - or wants to start modding - should read this. Even if you want to mod units, you need to start out with this guide. It provides the foundational knowledge needed for progressing to unit modding.
In Part II I will make a guide for modding units. I will make it in the same style as this guide.
very nice tutorial but unfortunatly my aoktc cd was smashed.. i'd adore you if you made one for normal aok
well nothing to add here but i hope you make a aok edition

Perhaps it sounds silly, but with me, as a newby, the confusion starts already at the beginning.
The tutorial says to open a new project. In the new dialogue screen one has to open 'My documents', type in 'test' and then press 'open'. But why 'My documents', and from where should what files (surely the tutorial assumes a whole list is loaded after this step) be loaded in MPS? I found some maps within this zip-pack which can be opened, but among the data there is no #5107 Statue.
Some help would be very usefull and welcome. Thanks in advance.

When you installed Modpack Studio, it should have made a copy of your data files. Did it do this for you? To check, go to the folder where Modpack Studio was installed (probably C://Program Files/Modpack Studio). There should be a folder called DATA or something similar. Does such a folder exist for you? How many files does that DATA folder contain? There should be approximately 10 files.
Modpack Studio projects don't have to be saved in My Documents. It's just the default saving location, so it's easiest. I personally save my projects in a folder within my Age of Empires II folder.
