The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Hello, hopefully someone who knows the mod pretty well is still checking on this.
I've got a highly customized pack that's nearly done, one of the last things to do is completely overhaul ancient warfare. We're making custom skins and structures for eight fantasy themed factions (using all the available factions in the mod)
Here's my current problem. I can get the skins working and I can place npcs from MOST of the factions in a structure and they will spawn in with the structure when it generates. All I have to do is rename them and add gear, seems to work fine (I'd rather have spawners but from what I've read those are broken).
The main trouble is that the custom_1 faction npcs don't seem to spawn in with the structure they were saved with. I just get an empty building.
What am I doing wrong with this? Should I try spawners? Also is there a way to change the default names of all the npcs so I don't have to rename them all when I'm placing them?
I am a 46 y/o retired veteran. I love this mod, and I very much want to help in its development. But while I have plenty of time to devote, I know nothing about modding. (Last time I did any programming, it was in Basic on my old C-64.)
So, are there any menial non-modding tasks that I can help with now? (I love boring and repetitive tasks...they relax me.)
I am also interesting in learning to mod. Any suggestions regarding modding subjects I should focus on that would eventually give me the tools to help develop this mod?
