what's the difficulty in modding this? i want to create a faction that uses mythical creates, like the dragon, but i have no 3d modeling tools, neither the expirience to do it.

How do i go about doing that?

hey nelson I suggest you look at the Glest forums and or/ wiki, there is much more info there. Glest is easy to edit, though making new models does require some dedication to learn. But don't let that discourage you!
First you need a 3D modeling program such as Blender (which is free).. a image editor such as Photoshop or Gimp(Gimp is free) to create textures... And a text editor like notepad ++(Also free) to edit xml files. And that's about it!
