Changing mission files (traders)

5 posts in this topic

Is there a way to edit the mission files with what i've already got. (I've got the mission files from here @ the downloads section)
I would like to edit the map, maybe add buildings in, also edit the traders like their layout.

Alright, before people slam you for being lazy, I'll give you this pearl.  Use the search bar, spend a little time sifting, and you'll find that this has been answered, explained, and walk-throughed countless times since the mod was released for public use.  

As a helpful point, as I hate leaving a post without trying to be genuinely helpful, check out the EDEN plugin that was created by the Exile devs.  

This should allow you to add buildings, modify traders, etc etc.

I learned everything i know but just trying, without going off tutorials. Just get a feel for everything and just say fuck it and wing it. Trust me it works. If you still are having tons of problems let me know and ill help.

There is a post made somewhere on this site that gives the full code of over 60+ buildings with loot etc.... It's literally a copy/paste job. While this is a very lazy and bad practice it can help you starting out figure out what it all means and how you can change everything.  

 

I've taken a look at the 3DEN plugin and while it is very nice you have no control to move the placements apart from rotate etc... I find placing the items down in the Eden editor alot more practical, getting the coords for the actual trader noting them down on paper/notepad and deleting that item etc... This way you can fully adjust everything and with a quick Google you can find the lines you need to add to certain stuff to make them move, light up, walk around etc...  

I've been practicing building a server for the last week and god i wish i had not started! What a flipping headache it has been. But after lots of searches and lots of bashing my head against the table i've managed to get a fully working Exile server up and running with a couple of mods and even fixed that stupid "WeaponScope" error on login which is the worst thing to do EVER!!!! Customised everything in price, respect etc... and even made an AI system patrol the safezone and entered triggers that when you drive towards the entrance of the traderzone the AI open up the gate for you.  

Like i said lots of bashing your face in to the table but with some simple Google searches almost EVERYTHING you could ever dream of has already been done or a bunch of people can point you towards the right direction to figuring it yourself.

 

If you want a popular server i highly advise against copy/paste since it won't be any different to the 100 servers already out there.

My latest idea is to have the bounty system work in a way that you visit a BlackOps team in the middle of the jungle located in just a "In this area" type circle where you can pay poptabs to spawn 5AI Easy, Reg, Hard, Elite to track and hunt down a player. Easy-Reg will be a 50/50 chance of killing the player while hard is 75% and Elite is 90%.

I'm trying to figure out how to do this by using bits of code from "Deploy bike" mod, code written on the forum which charges for the spawn bike option and the bounty system. The only part i'm struggling with is getting the AI to actually locate and spawn within 1000m of the player and actually hunt them down not just wonder around looking at tree's the whole time lol.

 

Anyway good luck. Have fun. Be ready to scream at the screen asking "WHY DO YOU HATE ME!"
