UPDATED FOR STARBOUND 1.05
Do you wish to learn modding, but never modded anything in your life before?
This guide is a created especially for those completely new to the modding scene.
You do not need any programming experience or pixel art experience to get into starbound modding. A good 95% of starbound can be modded through JSON alone, which is a data interchange format. You would never have to touch Lua ( an actual programming language ) at all!
Modding starbound is almost as simple as filling out a form, so if you haven't already its a good time to give it a shot. But bare in mind you do need to put in some effort on your part to see things through. It may be easy but there is a degree of creativity as well as critical thinking involved.
