FAQ

The Frequently Asked Questions page has answers to common questions about the GECK and modding in general. For simple questions, this would be the place to start.

Solutions

Like any miracle of modern technology, the GECK can be complicated and puzzling to use at times, and figuring out how to do something may not be obvious at first glance. The Solutions page is the place to find answers to problems others have posed before they are wiki-fied and converted into their own articles.

Advanced Modding Techniques

As you get the hang of the GECK, you'll probably want to start releasing your mods to share your efforts with others. No doubt you'll also want to use more sophisticated methods to develop, organize, and present your mod. The Advanced Modding Techniques page has articles to improve your style, efficiency, and prowess with the GECK. The GECK is a powerful tool, and is in fact capable of doing things it wasn't even designed to do! The Advanced Modding Techniques page also includes articles on how to get the GECK to do fancy tricks like rolling over or playing dead! Actually, kidding on those last two.

Mod Tools

The GECK is powerful, but not all-powerful. The Mod Tools page has information on other Tools that can help in the modding process, such as programs to manage loaded plugins, or to edit resource files like meshes and textures.
