Map failed to fully generate - converting TFTD map to UFO
« on: February 19, 2015, 03:04:59 am »
Guys I need help.

I created a new alien deployment and terrain and a map that is 70 x 50. Whenever I try new battle I get Map Failed to Fully Generate.

The map is fixed and should not randomly generate.

Any thoughts?

impossible to diagnose without the ruleset and pictures of the map blocks.

ooops . so sorry i forgot

this is just the section that deals with the map/mission deployment. all other elements are working out. the map is working out too. is imported from tftd a cargo ship. i wanna do a random ship terror mission see if is possible. I modified the MCD and changed the palette and i am gonna change up scan map after. i borrowed the route and fixed it up. should work fine.

i have a feeling the problem is skyranger cannot be placed on the map. or the map is too big?

well, your dimensions are completely wrong for one thing, your map is 70x50 and you've defined the block as 70x50, but it's 30x70, also, it has no script. you need to define where the craft goes, as well as the map block you want to add, including the size, assuming it's not 10x10.

no, you don't need to add it to a group...

Code: [Select]
    - type: addCraft
      rects:
        - [1,0,1,2]
    - type: addBlock
      size: [3,7]

is all you need

that's a slightly less helpful error message i'll grant you, but i'd recommend double checking your deployment data "STR_SONIC_PULSERDE" for example i don't think is a thing

seems going towards the center of the ship gives this crash i assume something to do with mcd data or some other obscure thing .  it works though for 1 turn.

Usually that is caused because the game can't visualize something that is supposed to, either with terrains, units or weapons.

thanks Warboy. Thanks a lot for your help. I love this community :)

thanks hobbes.

I think there is are some tile types that are either broken or OpenXcom can't read well due to TFTD differences or who knows? I m gonna try to edit out the map until I can make it work. Maybe there are some subtle MCD differences between the two games.

Warboy, remember, we got a ingame crash because of map mess somewhere at the kitchen of the cargo ship. I think it's the issue. But I don't remember what exactly was the issue and how was it fixed.

How are you converting the PCK images from TFTD to the UFO Battlescape palette?
