Depending on what mod you want to do then theres different ways to do them.

If you want to do a weapon mod for example theres some things thats needed.
Your gonna need a new map and name it to something like "Mymod.rte" then your gonna need an Index.ini, this tells cortex what to load.
Then a file for the weapon code.

A bullet
of some kind (MOPixel or AEMitter, havent worked with shooting anything else)

A Round:
saying what to shoot and how hard to fire it. On this you can also add some kind of shell so that it looks like when you shoot you eject a shell of the bullet.

A Magazine:
all guns need a magazine. Here you define your round and what material you want the magazine to be, if its hittable or not. And where its located om the gun.

And finally the gun
Here you define what name the gun has, what it costs and what magazine it equips, material and looks, the muzzleoffset(Where the bullets will come out) and other nifty stuff like what it will "Gib" (What items to drop when it breaks) but gibbing is purely optional.

A good explanation of this was made by Major and Mehman
Heres link to their explanation:

I can explain further information about this when I get home, if you still not understand (Currently writing this on my android)

There are quite a few resources around Mod Making. If you do a quick topic search in this subforum for 'Tutorial' you should find a large number of tutorials that should help you get started.

However, for a quick start I recommend simply opening up any faction folder in cc, going into devices and opening a random gun.
Read a few of the variables and think about what they would do. After determining what you think said variable does, try changing it!

Experimentation will always help and it will quickly become apparent what does what. Of course, we're here for any specific questions you have!

One more thing, there is no quick way to learn how to mod. Just keep at it until you feel comfortable and good luck!

I found this way the fastest way of learning. It's almost just like you said.
Opening up code of other modders and percieve how they used the code to achieve their result, and use those new methods for yourself has been the fastest way for me.

Just to clarify, by quick I meant shortcut or easy way out. Of course it's pretty fast if you have a basic understanding of how the game works and you're willing to give up your spare time!

Yeah i know XD, Just wanted to tease you. Jokes*

But still, that way of learning is fastest for me. To be able to understand the code yourself in your own understanding. (Hope that makes sense XD)
