      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

Well, real coders doesnt do mods they do their own games.



Fortunately I don''t think there are that many mod''ers around here to start a flame war over that.

Probably most of the people interested in mod''ing hang out at websites specific to the particular game they mod.

I'm just starting on mod development for half-life. If anyone has any tips, feel free to post them. I have finished the liblist.gam, menu art, and compiled the dll and named it after my mod. Now all I need is some tutorials. If anyone can point some out, that would be really cool. But a link to specific tutorials plez, not a general page, cuz those are usually huge.

BTW, real coders also do mods. In fact, alot of coders started with mods to get an idea of game programming and then they went on to make their own games.

If you wanna start a flame war, no p, ill get all the modders i know in here:D:@
Thanks,

And real posters know their grammar, and doesnt make such stupid mistakes

Seriously though, making a mod can be just as hard, if not harder than making your own game, because you''re working with unfamiliar technology. I mean, do you find it easier to find your way around your own neighbourhood or somebody elses?
