Hi my son (10) would like to make his own mods - is that even possible? Thanks for such a great site.
It is possible but would require him to learn a bit of programming in Java. There are holiday camps and sites popping up around the place that run courses specifically designed to teach kids enough Java to make mods, so if he's at all interested in that he could definitely make his own mods. He might like to start out making his own resource packs, which are a lot easier to do because they just require editing image or sound files.
Hope that helped!
