I suppose some the links need updating, but really the only way to learn to mod is to look at other people's work.
In case you haven't noticed, this isn't exactly the most active community. Both games are almost 10 years old, but even at that, usually you post for help, it will come. That said, not all of us have time to hold hands, so why the tutorials are there. I'm sorry you feel this way, but if you'd like to give it another chance, I can help you out. Just PM me and I'll help out.
