    Arsenal26 reacted to nolanri in Getting the GridSquare that your mouse is over   
    For future reference, since this was frustrating to calculate. Here is the method for all to use. it calculates the grid square that your mouse is over based on screen size and properly accounts for the Zoom level as well.  using the center of the screen as a starting point.

    local sw = (128 / getCore():getZoom(0)); local sh = (64 / getCore():getZoom(0)); local mapx = getPlayer():getX(); local mapy = getPlayer():getY(); local mousex = ( (getMouseX() - (getCore():getScreenWidth() / 2)) ) ; local mousey = ( (getMouseY() - (getCore():getScreenHeight() / 2)) ) ; local sx = mapx + (mousex / (sw/2) + mousey / (sh/2)) /2; local sy = mapy + (mousey / (sh/2) -(mousex / (sw/2))) /2; local TheSquareYourMouseIsOn = getCell():getGridSquare(sx,sy,getPlayer():getZ());

    Skill books save progress, recipe books don't. However, recipe books are much quicker to read so its not generally an issue. Not sure what might have happened in your game to cause you to go back to 0% but it should save your progress
    Edit: had a thought. Do you mean the pages read went to 0 or the progress bar sent to 0? The progress bar resets to 0 but fills faster if you have already read some pages. If you've read half the book then put it down, when you start again the progress bar is 0 but will now fill twice as fast.

    Arsenal26 reacted to BoogieMan in Allow M16 to use .223 in addition to 5.56, because they can.   
    I noticed today that a M16 can't use .223 rounds. I do not find this surprising, but it is factually inaccurate.
    Most 5.56x45 weapons can safely fire .223 rounds. You don't even need a different magazine. Not quite as good at longer ranges though.
    A .223 firearm *can* fire a 5.56 round as well, but it is potentially unsafe since a 5.56 round produces more pressure that could in best case wear out the gun faster,  get jammed up inside the mechanism, or worst case make it explode in your face.

    I remember seeing in one of the recent(ish) updates that they fixed this problem... or provided a work around or something. I know this isn't much help, but if you do a search for recipes and look in the update section, the answer might be there. Or it might require you to be in the IWBUMS branch.

    I've been doing some research, and I see that overriding an item for the base game is pretty straightforward. However, I can't seem to override a base game recipe.
    I want to change the way the "Gather Gunpowder" recipe works for a mod I'm working on, but when I do something like (having copied the recipe and editing it, to account for any typos) the following, I just end up with the base game recipe and then the one that I added, instead of it replacing the base one.

    module Base{
       recipe Gather Gunpowder{
    Is there another method for replacing base game recipes? I searched the forum for examples, but could only find ones relating to items.

    Arsenal26 got a reaction from CheekyM8 in Build 41 MSR 700/788 rifles need a few changes.   
    Can't really keep any kind of distance with effective range of [10]. I get that as your skill increases its effective max range goes up at a higher rate than pistols... But the starting max range of [10] is too low for a bolty... especially when compared to a long revolver which has [11]. Pistols are from 7-11, and rifles are pretty much 10 across the board with the exception of Assault Rifle which is 11...
    A noob shooter is ineffective at longer ranges, but that's where the hitchance increase per skill comes in.... Max effective range should be more of physical characteristic of the cartridge...  whether it hits or not is another thing...
    I adjust rifles in my game to the 15-17 range...  that seems to feel about right..

    Arsenal26 got a reaction from BudeRoy in Add a function to a tool/weapon   
    LOL... i'm such a noob at modding its embarrassing...
    Anyways, I made the mod last night after reading your post and uploaded to see if it worked... but the title of your thread was "how to do that" so here's what I figured out during that 20 minutes of poking around... (took longer to find that picture of the guy prying a plank)
    First of all, we are not adding a FUNCTION to a TOOL... because the function already existed which is unbarricade... We merely added a TOOL to the FUNCTION.
    In the timed action ISUnbarricadeAction, the isValid function kicks you out if you don't have a Hammer or Stone Hammer... so I just added the Crowbar there...
    In the ISWorldContextMenu.lua  it only shows the option to Unbarricade if "hasHammer" is true... So since we did not want to be able to use the Crowbar to Barricade (install planks) and only Unbarricade (remove planks), I added a new check in in the ISWorldObjectContextMenu function for "hasCrowbar" so as not to affect everything else that checked for "hasHammer". I don't think we wanted to be able to hammer nails with a Crowbar right ?
    Next we find each instance where Unbarricade is made visible in the context menu, and add the check for "hasCrowbar"....
    in this case, (3) instances existed :
      - if not IgnoreObject
      - if window ~= nil
      - if door ~= nil
    And finally, the function ISWorldObjectContextMenu.onUnbarricade has all the logic to determine what ends up in your PrimaryHandItem... I added a check to not automatically equip a hammer every time if you are holding a Crowbar, and visa versa... Previously, it just always equipped either of the (2) possible hammers.
    So that's how we added a TOOL to this FUNCTION...
    Admittedly, I did it the Caveman way by replacing the whole vanilla file instead of making the changes in a more elegant way.... But I think we can agree that this should just be in the base game.... So I didn't waste too much more brain juice on it other than to see if it worked...

    So I'm not attempting to offer any version of the SuperSurvivors! mod (by Nolan Ritchie) in any way. I’m just trying to play the game the way I want to play it, while trying not to break anything in the process. That said, I’d like to share and demonstrate a few things since Animations and NPC’s are on the horizon. I figure it was a good time to post this to perhaps add something to the NPC conversation. Talk is cheap, so I made a video to illustrate my ideas:

    0:05 – [Eat now] command

    1:05 – New Fighter Group Role

    3:25 – Guard Task in Fighter Role

    5:03 – New Over-Watch Group Role

    8:19 – Over-Watch and Vehicles

    10:35 – Close Over-Watch support for Vehicle

    15:33 – NPC Vehicular Combat (firing from inside Vehicle)

    ---Raven Creek---

    This adds the city of Raven Creek to the vanilla game world.
    The map has the following parameters
    - size 6*4 (24 cells)
    - more than 1200+ buildings, and most of them are multi-storey 
    - more than 20000+ rooms
    There are three zones of different difficulty on the map. They have a different number of infected. It also affects how long you survive, there will be more of them every day (unless you changed this in the sandbox settings). They also differ in the amount of loot and features.
    На карте три зоны разной сложности. У них разное количество зараженных. Также влияет на то, как долго вы выживаете, с каждым днем зомби будет больше (если вы не изменили это в настройках песочницы). Также они различаются количеством лута и особенностями.

    Urban zone (red) Городская зона (красная)
    - A lot of loot (max) / Кол-во лута (макс)
    - a lot of zombies (max) / Кол-во зомби (макс)
    - a lot of weapons and ammo (max) / Кол-во огнестрела и амуниции (макс)
    - little space, alleyway tight (especially in buildings) / Узкие переулки и коридоры, особенно в зданиях
    - better not to shoot, no matter how much ammo u have / Лучше подумать, прежде чем стрелять
    - stealth can help a lot here/ Скрытность может хорошо помочь здесь
    - a lot of traffic jams(car will useless here) / Много пробок и аварий, передвижение на транспорте осложнено
    - high difficulty/ Высокая сложность
    Residential zone (green) Частный сектор (зеленая)
    - medium loot / Кол-во лута (среднее)
    - medium zombies / Немного зомби (только вначале)
    - medium weapons and ammo / Огнестрела меньше чем в других зонах
    - almost empty roads (you can use the car) / Пустые дороги и много пространства
    - medium difficulty / Средняя сложность
    Port zone (yellow) Портовая зона (желтая)
    (for PVP) (для ПВП)
    - A lot of loot (high) / Много лута
    - low-medium zombies / Мало зомби
    - a lot of weapons and ammo (high-max) / Много оружия
    - difficult to get here / Сложно добраться сюда
    - on this side of the coast there are several secret places with awards / Есть секретные места с наградой
    - low difficulty (the main threat in this zone is other players) / Без мультиплеера - низкая сложность
    - most loot in containers (you need a sledgehammer and luck) / Большинство лута находиться в контейнерах, нужна кувалда
    The main point of creating the city was to gain a different experience. Vanilla PZ is more based on survival where it's hard to find weapons, food, etc., but I tried to add more action - there is a lot of loot in Raven Сreek, a lot of weapons, but the difficulty is in the number of infected. There are a lot of narrow lanes where you will be eaten no matter how much loot you have, if you get too much attention. This requires a different approach. Therefore, the original idea of the city was in a huge number of everything, from weapons to the infected. 

    Another reason why there is so much loot on the map. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t like empty towns in multiplayer, when after a short time of creating a server there was nothing left on the map, I hope that Raven Creek will improve this situation. In any case, the city was created specifically for multiplayer, where the city will have a lot of loot, a lot of zombies, and a lot of players (not always friendly).
    Основной идеей создания города было получение другого типа опыта. Ванильный PZ - это в основном сложности с поиском всего необходимого, создание базы и накопление ресурсов. Но мне хотелось добавить сюда больше активности. В Raven Сreek очень много лута и оружия, но сложность тут как в кол-ве зараженных, так и в неизвестностном кол-ве их в зданиях, в сражениях в узких и тесных пространствах. Нужен другой подход - включать скрытность, качать огнестрел, использовать окружающую обстановку. Город планировался для быстрых рейдов, поэтому безопасных зон для базы нет и не будет (кроме одной). Крайне советую играть с бегунами.
    Вторая причина почему в городе так много лута - карта создана специально для мультиплеера. Думаю все помнят как быстро опустошали от лута ванильные города в мультиплеере. Надеюсь Raven Сreek улучшит эту ситуацию.
