You feed the madness, and it feeds on you. 
This is my thread for Dmod Creation tutorials. These tutorials will teach you the basics of Dmod creation. They are sesigned for beginners, but intermediate and advanced users may still find certain tutorials helpful.

Tutorials are made in numerical order, and throughout the tutorials we will be creating and using an example Dmod to learn the concept of Dmod creation. If you have watched a tutorial and you still don't fully understand something, send me a private message, make a post below, or make a thread on the forum asking for help.

I'll be updating the list below whenever I make a new tutorial.

Here is a link to the playlist containing the basic tutorials in order(or you can access them from the list below), more videos will be added to the playlist as they are created: Dmod Creation Tutorials playlist

There is also a list of miscelleanous, standalone and extra tutorials that are not part of the basic tutorial list that will show helpful stuff. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for that, or view the playlist here:
