    I am hoping for the mod. By the way have you named it if so here are some name ideas, Vex,Zypher and Star-Doom
    #
    Pete 9 years ago
    Im actually looking for a name that would contain the spaceships name, Starsurfer. Any ideas.

    Here is the aforementioned tricky plot object.

    de-BEAMbotifier;//name
    43;//id
    -1;//map type to place to
    0;//plot object class
    48;//plot object def. number, NOT -1
    0;//number of objects to be placed
    0;//location type
    0.000000;//parameter0
    0.000000;//parameter1
    0.000000;//parameter2
    0;//show on radar
    0;//particle shown on radar
    none;//radiate sound, none for nothing
    -1.000000;//time to delete object in ms
    1;//trigger event by
    0;//parameter1
    1;//show help texts for conditions
    begin_effects_block;
    none;//event text
    none;//sound, none for nothing
    1;//vanishes after event
    begin_conditions;
    end_conditions;
    begin_effects;
    50;//effect number
    1.000000;//parameter1
    2.000000;//parameter2
    1000000.000000;//parameter3
    -2.000000;//parameter4
    49;//effect number
    -1.000000;//parameter1
    0.000000;//parameter2
    -1.000000;//parameter3
    0.000000;//parameter4
    52;//effect number
    0.000000;//parameter1
    0.000000;//parameter2
    0.000000;//parameter3
    0.000000;//parameter4
    56;//effect number
    -1.000000;//parameter1
    0.000000;//parameter2
    0.000000;//parameter3
    0.000000;//parameter4
    44;//effect number
    1.000000;//parameter1
    0.000000;//parameter2
    10.000000;//parameter3
    0.000000;//parameter4
    21;//effect number
    9.000000;//parameter1
    44.000000;//parameter2
    0.000000;//parameter3
    0.000000;//parameter4
    end_effects;
    end_effects_block;


    Its supposed to give the player control and camera back to the original player creature (from a mini robot, the player creature is class two), increase a bar by one and them teleport the player to a differeent plot object, all that on touch. The problem is... it doesnt do ANYTHING, it just dissapears. Any ideas?

    For the name maybe,
    StarSurfer-War,Doomed Starsurfer
    or change the name of the ship to "Petral"
    then the names can be, Petral Wars, Death on the Petral,Downed Petral. An even better name for the ship would be "Condor"
    Mod names could be, The Condor has fallen (TCF)
    "Condor Down" and perhaps "Doomed Condor"
    The ultimate name I can think of that doesn't have the ships name is Everybody For Themselves or they die. Short form (if used make this the name on notriums mod think) EFTD

    For the bot I don't think it's possible to do that.
    Unless I am thinking of another thing.

    Huh? I have the bot in-game and working. What I have problem with is giving the control back to player.

    And those are actually good names. Ill think about them.

    The trick is to make the actual "control" thing be a force-equipped item, where the "control" is only active while said item is equipped (think hoverbike). Once the item is un-equipped, control automatically returns to the player. Look at how the hoverbike does it for an example.
    #

    Mage has a point its like the hoverbike you go near it click the keycard and you control it.

    p.s yes my names are pretty cool

    Ok, I have to admit I never thought of that before, thanks!

    I'd like to, but whoknowswhy it keeps crashing! When I look in the debug file it gives me this:

    Starting Initializing Area Ducting
    Starting Find prop number multipliers
    Finished Find prop number multipliers
    Starting Select Climate
    Finished Select Climate
    Starting List no_random_objects_terrain
    Finished List no_random_objects_terrain
    Starting Allocate memory for map
    Finished Allocate memory for map
    Starting Distribute Map Editor terrains
    Finished Distribute Map Editor terrains
    Starting Initializing Creature Specialties
    Finished Initializing Creature Specialties
    Starting Distribute Map Editor objects


    I checked that map like 5 times, and I just cant find any reason for that to be happening, expect maybe some big objects. Like walls.
    #
    Aphiberg 9 years ago
    the last one is Distributing editor map objects hmmm what was the last few things you added before this happened?

    He's overreacting to not getting a response from one of those "Come and Go" users. Kinda like how I overreacted to the return of whatsisname-that-won-the-avatar-comp. Of course, I remembered his name back then, but it's New Year's Eve. You can't blame me when it's 10:30PM on a New Year's Eve.

    Whatta ya mean, Come and Go? And to answer that, I have no idea. I think I basically just removed some stuff!
    #
    alphard 9 years ago
    Pete, where is your final mod version? i hoped to get it before the new year but you've broken my expectancies!
    did you save any backup versions of your mod before the foregoing crash happened?
    you should use any soft like CVS, or backups at least; if you have any backups you can rapidly repair the problem using some tools like "beyond compare" or "winDiff"...
    #
    Aphiberg 9 years ago
    yay pete is not dead and he is still working on the mod!!
    #
    Aphiberg 9 years ago
    Pete can you please post and give us a release date and give us a report on how the mods going
    #
    harwe 9 years ago
    plz shuttup and be patient lol

    Release date: When its done.

    Hows it going: Screwed. The most complex map I have ever made suddendly decides to keep crashing, and I cant find any reason for it to do so, and I already deleted everything that could possibly be the problem. I can think of only one solution, and that is remaking the map, and trust me, I dont exactly want to do it. Sooo, I will fix it, but it will take a long time.
    #
    Aphiberg 9 years ago
    it's atleast good to know that you are still working on the map.
    have you checked other files though it may not be the map but a broken line in a .dat file
    #
    Pete 9 years ago
    I checked the debug file, and it says it crashed when it was loading objects in that map. It has to be it.

    What is with you Aphiberg, Pete has been working on this mod for ages, I really don't think he's going to drop it. Just because he doesn't post updates every day doesn't mean he's dropped it.

    Actually...I did paused the mod till I be bored enough to make it again. This doesnt mean I dropped it or anything, just that Im taking a break.




    Now that I think of it, I AM bored! To the editor!


    EDIT: Oh the pain! The horrific PAIN of deleting a fully made map! YEEAARGHH! *falls* Ergh. *twitches*

    EDIT. I hate bars. With GREAT intensity. For some friggin reason, my health and one of special bars wont display! Why? WHY?!!!
    #
    Aphiberg 9 years ago
    make a back up of your map just incase and check your .dat files about the bars.

    Also I am sorry if I am not patient it's just I am tired of playing the same mod's over and over so I really want pete to finish this mod. It seems so good!!!

    Actually, most of the mods have infinity replay value, simply because there are several possible endings, and a whole lot of easter eggs. Unless you've found all... what, 7? You should not be very tired of it after finding one or two. I've found four.
    #
    Aphiberg 9 years ago
    with me I am not patient to find all the things. I like mod's like Aleryon Betrayal That have a set win point I am sure this mod is fixing the ship or something either way if this mod is good Ville should post it on the homepage!!!!!

    Edit: Whats the use Pete put this on hold it will eventually die end of story

    *Please delte this post*

    Has anyone ever told you how incredibly pessimistic you are Aphiberg?
    #
    FREAK 9 years ago
    Yeah I agree.
    First you double post and then you consider Pete's mod dead?
    What is wrong with you man?
    I'm sure Pete has done all he can to make this mod a good one.
    Its not easy making a mod you know!
    Give the guy some credit will ya!
