What is modding, and why should I mod Starbound?
"Modding" is a shortened way to say "modifying." Modifying means to take something and change it. In the case of video games, modding means to change something about the game: to change the rules of the game, to change content, or to add new content.
Modding starts as the desire to take something and improve it, to make it subtly yours, even if it's just in a very small way. All modders mod because they want to create something new. Many modders do it because they enjoy sharing their creation with others. Modding is a great way to be creative with a minimum of investment and skill, increase your personal enjoyment of the game, become a part of a community, and to increase the enjoyment of others.
