Story here, I'm an Army vet who just came home for good and started up with school, so naturally I picked up video games again, this time on the PC. Lord have mercy if only I knew how wonderful mods could make a game.
In all honesty, I was slightly inebriated whenever I encountered this website and don't exactly have the details on how I got here, but I do remember by being wowed by the community and pictures many modders shared.
I have just recently started playing a modded fallout, my computer literacy skills are advanced enough for me to install and troubleshoot a relatively heavily modded game, but I couldn't create a mod to save my life. However I do have an interest in learning, to help myself and if possible others enjoy a funner game.
I'd say what attracts me most to this community is the wealth of knowledge people have about the general modding community, Nexus was all I knew and it seems people here know modders from various countries and their work, which opens the door to so many possibilities.
