Overwhelming server source code

Post by FakeDeath » Tue Jul 23, 2019 11:41 am

I'd like to get into modding but I'm a bit overwhelmed by the server source code on Github (ddnet/src/engine/server right?). Granted, I don't have much programming experience under the belt but then again, there seems to be zero documentation within the source files. So I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to get started.

Ask around on Discord #developer channel, there are a few people who can find their way around the code. Or just try stuff out randomly, search for keywords that interest you. Or even check changes on Github that did something similar to what you intend to do.

When modding most of the times wanna touch src/game/server
