Winds and storms, embrace us now,
Lay waste the light of day,
Open gates to darker lands
We spread our wings and fly away.

Writing mods for the Unreal engine can be an extremely rewarding task. In the current state of the games industry, there is little better a way for a skilled programmer to show the world what he is capable of. This document is intended to give interested mod authors the information they need to write a successful mod for the Unreal engine. I will include technical information as well as pointers on mod development. If you work hard, you can get some fun stuff done through mod authoring.
