  1. Looks like you havnt set up the tiles properly. In Tilezed you need to click on Tools and then Tilesets and then make sure the Tiles Folder is pointed at the Tiles folder you downloaded and not the 2x folder inside of it.
  2. Make sure you have downloaded and set up the tiles folder in both TileZed and WorldEd. If you are trying to open the vanilla map then you are out of luck. Any/all map mods need to be created from scratch.

    Map help

    Havnt tried with raven but have tried with bedford, both before and after yours and it works fine as long as you dont try and use your map as the spawn location.

    Map help

    Just taken a look at your map mod on steam and I have no load order errors, only error that occurs is if I try to use your map as a spawn location, it then errors out and closes to dekstop, looking at your spawnpoints.lua its blank, if you dont want it to be a spawn option just remove your spawnpoints.lua.
  5. It does work, you just need to have a look at the distributions.lua file to see that it requires specific lockers otherwise it will pull from the all "definition", remember you can also make custom definitions if the vanilla one isnt doing what you want it to.
  6. You most likely do not have a veg image, you need both your base image and your _veg image before you can drag your image into worlded. The one stop guide goes over how to make the 3 images needed (including the zombie spawn map) before going over how to import them into worlded.
  7. @BigZombieMonkey This is actually fixed by removing all trims from interior and exterior walls from the right hand side of the screen before placing them, bit of a bug. You can then add trim back to walls you have placed without this error occuring. Use the draw room tool as much as possible and only use the draw wall tool to add additional walls or to remove walls. But yes also make sure you are using walls that have the correct tiles for walls/windows etc to be placed. Interior walls should only be visible when the interior of the building is visible, exterior walls are the same. ie North and West walls will almost always be interior walls and South and East walls will almost always be external, you can look at vanilla buildings for reference.
  8. If you are already far enough along on your map then using the world offset when exporting your map should be all that is needed when exporting your first and subsequent maps. ie, if your first map was just a single cell placed at the co-ordinates 30x30 and you then wanted to add another single cell joining directly to the west of it you can just create a new world and give it the world offset of 29x30.
  9. As stated in the original post, the new tiles will be released some time after the new year.
  10. You can't edit existing cells but you can overwrite them with new cells that you have made. You can use this website to check the cell numbers of the vanilla map and to line up roads with roads on your mod: https://map.projectzomboid.com/ The guide above explains how to add your mod to the vanilla game world.
  11. Download the latest version again, I have just updated the link to a new version that doesn't have the above issue.
  12. Looks like your trying to follow old instructions, hopefully this thread might help: You want to be using the distributions.lua and/or proceduraldistributions.lua files to add new items.
  13. Your mod.info file is a mod.info.txt file. You need to open it, then save as, then select "all files" and then name it mod.info - When you see it in your folder the "type" should be INFO file not Text Document.
  14. Updated this tutorial to work with the new in game mapping system.
  15. Ah I get you now, just checked it myself and I also see the same so looks like a bug, i'll pass this on, thanks!
  16. Do you mean Eris' mini map mod? You would need to contact Eris and ask him to support your map, it only works for mods he's made add-ons for.
  17. Yes, but for now there is a seperate guide on updating your map mod to work with the new in game map system:
  18. First off, make sure you are using the latest TileZed and WorldEd, found here: Now, In BuildingEd there is a new "Legend" feature that shows up on the right hand side underneath your list of buildings. For each of your buildings, select it in the list and then click on the Legend drop down and select the most appropriate option, this will make the building be coloured correctly when being displayed on the new in game mapping system. If you're making changes to buildings already placed on your map then don't forget to "generate lots" again in WorldEd! Next up, to get roads to be displayed on your map using the new in game mapping system you need to open your cell in WorldEd and draw a poly over your road with the new tools (the rectangle tool is the main one to use unless you have curved roads), then on the left of the window, in the "ingamemap" tab click on your new poly then click on the add button just below to open a key/value window, in key type "highway" and in value use either "primary", "secondary" or "tertiary" or "trail". You can then use the copy and paste buttons to the right of the "add" button to speed things up. Once all roads have been added then go to world view and select all cells, then in the "ingamemap" option at the top of the screen select "generate building features", once done do the same for "genereate water features" and "generate tree features". The above pic shows a cell which has had it building, tree and water features generated as well as having the highways added using the new "ingamemap" poly tools. Once all of these are done you can select the "Write features XML" option, select the same folder you export your map files to as these new xml and xml.bin files that are created will need to be put in the same folder as all of your bin and lotheader files. As long as you inlcude your worldmap.xml and worldmap.xml.bin alongside your maps lotheader and bin files then your maps buildings and roads should be displayed using the new in game map system. Here are a couple of in game examples of Bedford Falls using the above method and the new in game map system:
  19. Just checked the building in question, the room that uses the "policestorage" roomdef is 2-3 rooms to the right with multiple types of lockers in them, the room you are in has the roomdef "locker" which does not exist as a roomdef currently in the distributions.lua file so it will pull its loot from the locker definition within the "all" room definition. So in short, if you check the room a few rooms to the right you should be seeing your loot in those lockers, if you want them in the lockers in the room in the pic then create a distribution entry for a "locker" roomdef that points to your proceduraldistribution definition.
  20. Try with this in your distributions.lua instead: Distributions = Distributions or {}; local STPOdistributionTable = { policestorage = { locker = { procedural = true, procList = { {name="PoliceStorageGuns", min=0, max=99, forceForTiles="furniture_storage_02_8;furniture_storage_02_9;furniture_storage_02_10;furniture_storage_02_11"}, {name="PoliceStorageOutfit", min=0, max=99, forceForTiles="furniture_storage_02_4;furniture_storage_02_5;furniture_storage_02_6;furniture_storage_02_7"}, {name="StorageOutfitRosewoodSD", min=10, max=99, forceForZones="RosewoodSDL"}, }, dontSpawnAmmo = true, }, metal_shelves = { procedural = true, procList = { {name="PoliceStorageGuns", min=0, max=99, weightChance=100}, }, dontSpawnAmmo = true, } }, } table.insert(Distributions, 2, STPOdistributionTable); If your zone is being added to the vanilla world then the above code should work for you, all it is doing is adding your custom procedural definition into the existing roomdef (policestorage) and tiledef (locker) and stating it will only work inside a zone named RosewoodSDL so should only take effect where your zone is placed. In your original example you were using a custom roomdef (policestoragerw) and a custom tiledef (lockerrw) which wont work unless you have created a building with that roomdef and placed it on the map and added a new tile with that name.
  21. At the moment the best way to recreate a vanilla cell is to use this guide: along with the online map to use as a reference: https://map.projectzomboid.com/ Although you might find it easier to choose a cell around the town that has less buildings etc that need recreated.
  22. If you are trying to overwrite the loot in a vanilla location then you will be unable to set a custom zone as this needs done in worldEd before the map is exported. Your best bet would be to recreate the cell or add a new cell, and then add your new custom zone over the area you want to contain your new loot. Your above code should then work.
  23. Using 2 in that line guarantees that your mod gets added to the loot tables after the vanilla items do.
