If you skip the easy part, you will have major problems with the difficult part. Skip trying out small things, and you will never succeed making a Total Conversion.
Withking, you have certainly shown that you are determined, the blue text of your mini profile speaks true enough. It is laudible.
Determination and persistance are key elements to finish a mod, but without the patience to start small, you will never see the finish line. Before a man can run, he must first learn to walk. He can be determined to run first, but that won't do him any good if he can't walk.
So be smart and take the first steps first, and only then the second. Stay determined and persistant at making each step before the other and you will get to run over that finish line.
Now, this post was directed to witchking, but the lesson here is one that may be interesting for more than him alone.
Too far indeed.
