Working on a mod - Need some help

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

So, I'm working on my first mod - it's intended to make the Devil of Caroc Breastplate available upon killing Harmke. I've hit a bit of a snag, though, and would like some help with a few things.

 

1. Can someone show me where to upload my WIP files so they're accessible for people to edit to make sure I haven't blown something up, and to test it to make sure it does what it's supposed to do? I tried attaching it to this post, but it wouldn't let me. 

 

2. I'm not sure how to make an items.stringtable; I need to do this for my new description for the DoC Breastplate (To reflect the change on killing Harmke and getting a different ending for the character). Can someone talk me through how to do that?

I tried, but it says I can't upload "This kind of file."

Alright, I tried compressing my mod. Can someone have a look at it and make sure the code looks right and I didn't put a comma somewhere it's not supposed to be? Also, for the stringtable, is that something I have to make fresh? I'm reading the tutorial, and having a bit of trouble wrapping my head around what it's supposed to look like. 

 

Also, if someone wouldn't mind testing to make sure that "1" is the Devil_Quest_Stage value for her having killed Harmke, I'd appreciate it.

Overall, looks pretty good. I'm not in a place in game that I can test your changes though.

 

Here's a zip with three changes:

Deleted a hanging comma on line 136

Changed the file extension to "gamedatabundle" instead of "json"

Added an items.stringtable for you to work with

 

Don't worry about compressing your files or changing them back to that less readable format. They work just fine like this.

Thank you! Is there a way I can use the console to load into Marihi's Metalworks without having to do Port Maje again, to test that it works?

Alright - So, the item exists. The only problem is that I think it might conflict with the Devil of Caroc Breastplate (Since there's two different items with the same name). I tried calling the original in the console, but it wouldn't work. This shouldn't be the case in a normal save, I hope? 

 

Here's the completed version with the proper text, for further testing. I'm going to be busy throughout today so if someone wants to test it to make sure it works the way it's supposed to on a "Killed Harmke" save, I'd appreciate it. 

 

Also, if anyone has any better ideas for the flavor text, I'd like to hear them. I'm going to be tweaking that on and off, because I'm not entirely satisfied with it.

As far as we know only DEBUG_NAME and ID are important unless you're doing a complete override

 

Change them both and give it to a vendor

 

There are several tutorials on how to do this and they're all sticky

 

For translation + writing services see my Sig - we now have someone who can write superb text and a load of other members who can translate into EVERY language (apart from Spanish - not got one of those yet)

Ask any member of the group and they'll point you to one person (not me)


OK Fair warning has been applied

 

I'm gonna move the domain to https://perspak.com early Feb but will keep all content

 

There are reasons behind this move which basically boil down to unifying my release schedule

 

My friends are welcome to play (I'll set you up your own areas if you desire them)

 

Please note that this process is messy so may take a few weeks
