  1. Moral of the story: don't start the finer details on a project when errors are popping up at the start! Cheers for the help gents.
  2. Unfortunately, still no luck. Every time I "Write Spawn Points" it creates this: While this is correct, in the objects.lua it reads this: Two different sets of coordinates. I believe this is what's causing my issue. However, if I try to edit the objects file before loading up the game, it still causes the same issue. This is what shows up in the console: Sorry to continue to be a hassle!
  3. Agreed. I will move all of my old save files onto a separate drive (including the new map) and try to wipe all trace of the mapping software from the computer. Besides the downloaded files and the .tilezed folder, is there any other area that should be removed? Nothing to uninstall?
  4. I thought that too, and yet when I look at my spawnpoint.lua files for Phoenix, they had the same, strange layout. I'm wiping all versions of TileZed now and trying again, so I'll let you know. Either way, could I just copy and edit the Muldraugh version to have only the spawn point that I have set (changing all coordinates and format)?
  5. Hello again folks. Dipping my toes into the mapping pool, but after so much time away, I've forgotten how to fix the issues that I managed to navigate last time. At present, I've been following Ringo's new mapping guide as close to the letter as I can, but I've run into issues with the spawn points. Similar to the problem Xeonyx had back in 2015 the spawn point tool does not seem to work as intended. I am able to place the diamonds onto the map, but upon selecting them, there is no menu of professions to choose from. Instead, I have to type a custom profession (unemployed and all have run into the same issues). Either way, if I type unemployed and set the spawn points, the coordinates update on my spawnpoint.lua with the following: Once everything is saved and packaged again, I load up the mod as per instructions, find the map, create a new character (I've tried several careers including unemployed) and receive the following error message in the console. Can anyone see why the map would be failing to load? Am I wrong in thinking that it's the spawnpoint causing the issue (considering that the coordinates on the map and in the console are completely different)? Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I would love to put an answer up here permanently, as I remember the same thing happening 2 years ago! Mono
  6. It is currently ticked, and unticking takes it back to the BMP image. For some reason, all of the cells in WorldEd are still showing a lack of tiles. Apologies for the constant problems! I should have made this a single thread (before I realised it was a bigger problem!). I'm an idiot. In WorldEd alone, I had the tileset location as the TileZed folder. Not the cause of all the problems, but a rookie oversight! Cheers either way, Ringo! You're a babe. Feel free to move this chat if you feel it overwhelms the article. Mono
  7. You're an officer and a gentleman. It seems that has fixed TileZed from loading the tiles incorrectly. However, there is still an issue with WorldEd, which is opening the same files (I triple checked), but only shows this. It's a minor thing compared to all the tiles being screwed, but in this view, I can't see accurately where buildings need to go. Any ideas why this is still happening?? Either way, thanks again! Mono
  8. I'm afraid I've tried that too. It seems to be appearing on the new version of TileZed too. I've also just tried a complete wipe of the TileZed and WorldEd files, redownloaded and re-opened. Created the map from scratch, converted the files to TMX in a new folder and opened one of them in the new version of TileZed. In the image below, I have tried to change the location of the tile's it is looking for. The open window shows that the tiles exist (as the directory is the correct one), but the window on the right still shows them as red. Apologies for being a pain, but this is something I never encountered with Phoenix! Mono
  9. That's what has gotten me so confused: this is a brand new map. I've started everything from the beginning (besides the buildings that I've moved over). The questions marks appear on all layers. I've just done as you suggested and opened a new project, converted the BMP to TMX, and immediately upon opening it in TileZed, the same thing has happened. I'm using this version of the software and the latest tileset on the same page, with a brand new map! Any ideas?
  10. Hey Ringo! Thanks a lot for the tutorial. I'm starting to get back into the swing, and figured I'd start from the beginning. I've encountered something strange however, and I so far as I'm aware, I've followed every step. Once I loaded up a cell in TileZed for the first time, everything was the usual red question marks. I then went into Tilesets and selected the folder with the tiles in (the 2x folder was the only one that worked) and while some textures have appeared, many seem broken. I've re-downloaded the tiles zip folder just in case something was wrong, but from the looks of it, the program is aligning the wrong textures. Any ideas? Also, I tried linking my TileZed to the tiles directory that I used back in 2015, and the buildings I had placed suddenly worked, but everything else is broken. Either way, thanks for the guide! Mono
  11. Many thanks for finding this! I will attempt to fix it as soon as possible but it may not be released until the new version is ready!
  12. Hello Folks! For the last few months I have been planning a challenge map and have only recently decided to actually get working on it while Phoenix is being redesigned. This Challenge map takes place within an underground system of railways, sewers and maintenance tunnels, trapping players in the darkness. With this plan in mind, the map itself is easy to make. Creating the map as a challenge map on the other hand has me puzzled. Is there anything different I need to do to create specific spawning patterns? Is there anything I need to do at all to make this a challenge map, rather than just a normal, 1 cell map? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! MonoBaco
  13. Fortunately we're still looking at several weeks, if not a good few months before any changes are made, but while this is in development, I will be using a new Workshop item, so that it will not affect the current version. Unfortunately, these changes will have to come into effect once Phoenix hits the final release! Unless of course people would rather there be two versions (the first being the original, unchanged and the second being the final version).
  14. Hello! There is a non-steam version on the first page of this article, with the previous versions. You should be able to download it from mediafire. Monobaco the latest 2 or 3 versions are for steam workshop only... I am currently working on a new version of Phoenix which will likely change the size of the map again. Once this update has been released, both the Steam version and the forum version will be updated! Thanks for your patience!

  16. Hello folks! It's been a long time! I wanted to make sure that everyone knew what progress was happening on Phoenix, and the short answer is this: not much. While I am still making plans and making the occasional buildings, at this point the majority of future changes are average civilian homes and houses. With this in mind, I can't help but feel it would be better if I waited for Creative Mode to make dense urban areas with these specific tools, purely in the interest of time! That being said, I am completely unsure of the limitations of Creative Mode, and whether buildings I make in-game can be added to the workshop version of Phoenix. So, until then, does anybody have any requests for what they would like to see updated soon? Also, just in case you haven't seen it yet, check out the new shopping and cinema complex!
  17. Great work! I have however updated Phoenix to start further up the road and prevent the cutoff. In the future, this open area to the East of Phoenix will be occupied, so for the long run, this is a must! Either way, I hope you enjoy!
  18. Yep, got to alter the filenames to nudge it over a bit . . . Still have to do that for Proving Grounds. Is there a thread that shows you how to do that exactly? I've wanted to learn how to do that for quite sometime now so I could put the vinegrove map and downtown into Muldraugh for a new SP game. (and so I can fix this issue with phoenix & bedford lol). I wouldn't worry about the merging of Bedford and Phoenix. When I had planned the integration, I didn't realise that it would cause a merge (especially not with Bedford!). My fault for adding extra length to Phoenix! I will work on moving Phoenix further up the road tonight and reduce and cutoff.
  19. Beta 1.0 is released! We finally have map integration with Muldraugh! Happy hunting!
  20. Okay, one final update (hopefully). I have followed the instructions down to the letter, and everything seems to work nicely: the lotpacks and lotmaps are correct, the spawnpoints have been generated, the objects.lua is in place, and the .info file is in place. However, Phoenix is not appearing where it is supposed to in Muldraugh. At the moment, it starts at 38x36, but the map is entirely independent (black borders). Have I missed something? [EDIT] I'm a tool. Fixed and uploaded! Many thanks Ringo and Suomiboi. Phoenix is officially Beta!
  21. Well... There's egg on my face! Also, to make things worse, it seems as though I had downloaded the latest tools when they were released, but was still using the older version. Sigh. Thanks again! No doubt I'll be back again when this all goes wrong!
  22. Many thanks for this gents. I'll get to downloading the latest tools and have another crack at it. However, if you could help me with one final thing: how do you create a spawnpoint? Since the first days of making this map, I've written them up myself by checking the coordinates on map itself. Is there another way?
  23. I seem to have everything that you've listed, but for some reason my spawnpoints.lua file is empty, and there are is no chunkdata being generated for the new tiles. I imagine that means I'm on an outdated version, and I'm not using the right method for creating spawnpoints?
  24. Now that is an excellent idea. I'll give that a whirl now. Out of interest, in my mod folder I only have the lotpacks and lotmaps for tiles that I have created (and none of those included in Muldraught). Will that still work, or do I have to have all of the Muldraugh files in the same folder too?
