Assault Carbine help
« on: April 11, 2015, 04:20:38 am »
Greetings all! As my first time on this forum, and my first time modding, I apologize for any things I do that may seem...stupid. I have been trying to implement a Assault Carbine to go along with my many other mods I have installed from this wonderful community, however, after much work was done I received a Illegal Map Value notice on line 45 of my code.
If anyone can show me a fix, it would be greatly appreciated.

    text: STR_ASSAULT_CARBINE_UFOPEDIA
    listOrder:2901
    STR_ASSAULT_CARBINE_UFOPEDIA: This weapon is still being tested
Now, this is actually an earlier build with a few more errors, so if anyone can help me finish this I would be very grateful. ;)

Code: [Select]
type:- STR_ASSAULT_CARBINE_CLIPfor one thing

and then the indentation is all messed up beyond that, be careful with your spacing.
also you need to put extra strings in an extraStrings section.

I have fixed all of that, however, whenever I try to run it, it gets hung up on line 45 (or the one with ufopaedia: )
Its always saying illegal map value...

remove all the spaces before "ufopaedia:"
then insert:
Code: [Select]
extraStrings:
  - type: en-US
    strings:
between lines 50 and 51, then add two more spaces before "STR_ASSAULT_RIFLE_UFOPAEDIA:"

Ok, so before you replied I did some editing, to the point where it no longer shows the mod error when starting up the game, however, I cannot find the weapon anywhere, whether on the UFOpedia nor on the store. I am assuming there are some things I am missing (or coded wrong)
Here is the updated stuff

no need to include the full path for your extrasprites, use / instead of \ in paths, be careful with your indentation, don't use tabs, be mindful of the numbers you use for things like bigobs and handobs, as they are very precisely ordered, and must reference sprites that actually exist, wrap your extrastrings in quotes and make sure you define ufopaedia articles for your ammo.
i'd suggest grabbing a mod that does _basically_ what you want to do, as a starting point, and learn from there.
