So I'm going to be a Modder! Now, what?
Woke up this morning, decieded I am going to Make my own CIV 5 mod. No experience, No problem, right?

Well, where do I start? I can't even find any tutorials on how to make a mod, youtube is full of tutorials on how to install a mod.

So a few questions to get me started:
What is Steam Workshop? Is it a program I download?
Is the Game modded from inside the game? Do I have to launch it to edit like a game editor?

Is there a good Modding Guide I can read to get me started?

XML? I wear Large, not Extra Large. Shouldn't it be XLM? Extra Large Medium. That doesn't even make sense. I'll figure this out....

You should be able to find everything you always wanted to know about modding but were too shy to ask here[forums.civfanatics.com]. This[forums.civfanatics.com] particular thread contains a very useful, albeit slightly outdated, guide. There are other guides in the forum (first link) that will carry on from where that guide left off.

Let me know if u need any more help.

Well, to start making a mod go to tools in your steam library and get the sid meiers civ 5 SDK. I didn't tell you how because, sadly, it requires deleted software. So I wish I could tell you more. Try asking a real modder

Here[download.microsoft.com]'s the link for the "deleted" software, says the "fake" modder.
