When creating Joomla modules, I use something like this in my XML manifest file to add parameters:

        <fields name="params">
            <fieldset name="options" label="My Parameters">
                    label="Example label"
                    description="Example description"
                    default="Default value">

This creates a new tab called "My Parameters" in the module editor, where my fields are displayed.

But how can I add fields directly to the main tab ("Module"-tab)?

Use <fieldset name="basic"> instead of <fieldset name="options" label="My Parameters">

Then name of fieldset must be basic otherwise it will create a new tab.
