  1. All player made Building Archives Updated 3/29/17~

    Ok, I discovered something really interesting. I was placing several buildings, one gave error which meant a graphic that was part of it could not be loaded, so loaded the building into building editor which is named InApBl_by_7.tbx, and saw a swing set that is part of the built in park. Was wondering if the graphics were really missing, so looked into the tiles folder and low and behold I find location_community_park_01.png and realized, the graphics are actually there. They are just not loading in. Is this a game bug or does something need to be edited to get those graphics loading? And if I have to edit my side, most likely family and friends have to fix it on their side as well?

    just finished the map touchup, and discovered something so weird. Had to go into a backup I made because I discovered the veg map was severely off kilter. It was as if the whole veg map was selected, and at some point shifted right about 16 blocks. Most likely, I had left the map open when I went to bed and one of the cats saw fit to sleep on the keyboard. Anyway, everything is now where its supposed to be. I'll make sure to keep my pc shut down this time.

    Tough question, least for me to answer. One thing I do know, or at least I think I do is the building editor makes changes to certain files when you do things like adding your own graphics. I'm actually looking into what exactly control those because some houses in that huge list, have question marks and unless another graphic is picked for it, they can't be used or the map errors when trying to convert it.

    I ended up converting the map back into a bmt and png file. The small touchups were ok, but when I did a test run on areas that had no grass, or have grass now do to road removal, I found grass growing inside several buildings so to make things easier, as I only placed 4 buildings anyway, was to work on the map in paint and touch up all 4 layers, then go back to adding everything else. I'm sure there was a way to fix this in the editor, but being new, I took the easier path so as not to mess up a good map I spent a lot of time on. Not to mention, I was going nuts with the editor, because for some weird reason, it would get picky and not allow me to remove sections of road. Id be editing a road and adding grass, then notice 7 or 8 tiles refused to change with the others, no matter what layer I was on. I even unselected all layers just to make sure I was only working with the floor (0) level. It was almost as if those tiles had some type of protection.

    I noticed one of Ringod tutorials, an older one has information about building configurations, but unfortunately as you can see by the below link, they are old links from your old website so either got deleted or moved somewhere?

    I actually found a section regarding loot, but from what I can see, it has nothing to do with the building, it has to do with the item itself, like vending machine, fridge, etc. This what your looking for?

    Thanks so much QG. I didn't know you had to put something in to spawn loot, but the fact I do know now, will try myself. It took time for me to learn the ropes on spawning a working map, which so far have done without any issues. Designing buildings and what spawns in them next step. Again, thanks!

    Crazy question. Is this your video? If it is, you ask people to message you if they have any questions, but you don't have private messages enabled. Left you some comments on two of your videos if this is you, that I gather you don't visit often.

    Thanks for the info. You were right, I was using the tile editor. Found the building editor and worked from there. I resaved under a different name but discovered I really didn't have to delete all the stairs and replace them. Turns out, just loading them into the building editor, then resaving puts in the correct information so the building works, or at least this is what happened with the big office building I could not access the floors on earlier.

    Your the one who is making the Creative mode for the game?

    I'm terrible about that. Sorry Queen Glory. My daughter actually wants to talk with her after seeing he buildings I was playing with. My daughter loves art and making buildings too and just got into PZ, but has been making buildings for a few years now in Roblox. I either see her painting anime, or making buildings.

    Thanks Capt_Paradox,. Will it also move and change the locations so grass and so forth wont grow, like how we set them up in paint? Lets say for instance, I move the road 100 feet. Will the program adjust to where I move the road and stop the grass from growing on the new road locations, and now where the road doesn't exist, allow for plant growth? Or do I got to go back into paint, and make adjustments there?

    Lol, we have 4 cats, all fixed and kept indoors. Several trailer parks nearby, got sold a few years back and got converted to normal housing property. The biggest reason I want to move, was several break in's that happened over the past 2 years. And what is so frustrating about them, had found out several was done by a neighbor in an apartment complex behind my house. And the PD, just call it (Civil matter) Have cameras up all over now. But found out months ago, what was going on. First my daughter asking me why I was watching her in her bedroom one night, and my wife and I looked at one another, because she had checked on both the kids that night, and we had watched supernatural and went to bed and no one had entered the room. Found some of her property outside her window several days later and realized, she wasn't dreaming, someone had actually broke in and was watching her. THAT could have turned out far worse. What got me to realize it was one of our neighbors, was after finding out about the break ins. They were only stealing things we would not know would be missing, like old phones and old electronics. Earlier this year, I changed from DSL to cable and while setting up the new router, something came up requesting connection that should not have, which was my sons old tablet. It was supposed to be boxed up in the garage, and discovered the box was gone. A tablet, even off, the battery will not stay charged 2 years, so when it came up requesting connection which is because I set my router to only accept mac address to keep out neighbors, did a google trace to find the tablet was located in the apartment complex, along with some old phones too. Not only had they ripped us off of our old electronics, they were using the admin router password which I have since changed, to get the new network password every time I changed it and the PD would say because I don't know when they got stolen, that it was civil, and only thing I can do is go over there on a civil standby and ASK for my families things back.

    Thanks for the info. My map is actually 8x8 totaling 64 sections. The tutorial that was messing me up was saying to save the information in the painting program as layers, which made no sense to me because both png and bmt merge everything when you save. Mapzoid showed me the true format though checking the images in some other mods, was able to see I can use both green and red in the veg maps in both bmt and png formats. One issue I am having, is realizing some roads need to be changed as I can't line up buildings properly. Do I need to change them back to png/bmt formats to edit them, in paint, or is there a way to change the roads in the editor?

    Those great deals almost always are entrapments that get you stuck in a 20+ year mortgage contract. I had a neighbor who got caught in one of those. Got a home in Arizona with a $350 a month mortgage, and only had to pay $150 a month rent the first year. Soon as the year was up, the rent jumped to $1500.00 a month.
