    You posted this request on the latest build and Geti actually responded to you with a small but useful guide.
    If this guide is too confusing for you then you either shouldn't try modding at all or you need someone to walk you through every step, not just a guide on how to start.

    I recommend you first get a clear idea of what you would like to make or modify:
    do you want to make a new mode?
    do you want to make a new class?
    do you want to modify vanilla content?
    do you want to make items to add into a specific game mode or other's mod?
    do you only want to make a few head sprites?
    do you want to modify the sounds?

    For any of these you would surely need either to write or modify code or to make sprites, maps and sounds. From there, we don' have a clear path, and we ask each others on the modding sections of the forums, or in the IRC channel #kag.modding Generally by having a check at the vanilla files you can imagine what things you can modify without knowing much: values, script list (there's a script called FallDamage.as inside thte scriptt listt of every class, if you remove it from there your characters won't have fall damage f.i.), etc.
    I usually start checking the files I would like to modify, and I make a copy of them, paths included, in a folder inside the Mods folder, instead of copying all the things and only modifying a few. Then I modify them

    This is probably the most important thing you'll learn in modding: Ask the people on #kag.modding (especially Verra and Asu)

    I want a make a mod, that if a builder presses a button, it will make a ball that costs 10 stone. I have already made the ball entity.

    I added this code to the end of BuilderLogic.as but it doesn't work
    Code:
    if (CBlob.isKeyJustReleased(AK_PARTY))
    {
    if (CBlob.hasBlob(mat_stone,10))
       {
       CBlob.TakeBlob(mat_stone,10)
       CBlob.server_CreateBlob(ball)
        }
      }
    I know about these https://doc.kag2d.com/files/Juxta/juxta_blob_bindings-cpp.html , but i don't know how to put them together into code.

    instead of CBlob, you need to use the name of the CBlob variable. In your case it is this. it should look like this.isKeyJustReleased
    mat_stone is supposed to be a string so it should be "mat_stone" same with ball

    Also, it needs to be "ball" (with quotes) and I'm pretty sure server_CreateBlob is a global function

    Oh, also you can't just add it at the end of the file, you have to add it at the end of onTick.

    Would this be better?
    Code:
    void onTick(CBlob@ this)
    {
    
    blablabla default code...
    
    
    if (this.isKeyJustReleased(KEY_KEY_Q))
    {
    if (this.hasBlob("mat_stone",10))
       {
       this.TakeBlob("mat_stone",10)
       this.server_CreateBlob("ball")
       }
    }
    
    
    }

    Yes, except for two things:
    1. "this.server_CreateBlob("ball")" needs to be "server_CreateBlob("ball")", since server_CreateBlob is actually a "global" function, which means you don't call it on any object.
    2. You need some semicolons. As a general rule of thumb, if the next thing isn't a code block (most the time in {}), you need a semicolon (do look up the exact rules though)
    Here's a working version (excluding the default code):
    Code:
    if (this.isKeyJustReleased(KEY_KEY_Q))
    {
    if (this.hasBlob("mat_stone",10))
       {
       this.TakeBlob("mat_stone",10);
       this.server_CreateBlob("ball");
       }
    }
