  1. I have experiences in 3d software like blender, and I know how to modelling and animating them. The problem is how to add them into a mod. I saw a couple of mods have new animations in them, like that cart mod. I wonder how do you do that, saw no tutorial or post talking about this process.
  2. My windows dedicated server (steamCMD instantiated) has not been keeping up with the most current versions and as a result my server doesn't display with the default filters in the join server lobby for players. I validate game files for PZ main, PZ dedicated server, and the app validation through steamCMD. The only thing that seems to work is deleting the workshop files but even then it's inconsistent. what is the primary method of keeping server game versions current?
  3. Hello, i have been experiencing black screens when playing the game, they mostly happen when i was playing with mods and mp. Is there anything i should try to do? Thank you
  5. Hello, I've been working on a mod attempting to add Diets to the game. In order to do this I would like to be able to retrieve (or get) the FoodType String from the item object if it is a food. I've been digging around for a while but haven't managed to figure out a way to do it. I was wondering if this is even possible currently? I managed to adjust the FoodType variable by using ItemTweakerAPI for Build41 which allowed me to adjust only that value instead of overwriting everything. I confirmed that it was indeed working through the Mod Options mod. However, I have not been able to actually retrieve the FoodType variable from any food item object. I was wondering if I was missing something or if this just isn't possible to do currently.
  6. Hello! First time on the forums, and i've dabbled in modding before, but this one's got me stumped. I was inspired by a few mods to make a checklist/blank sheet of my own that I could customize using the in-game Map symbols/writing functionality. I had thought just copying the code over from one of those basic mods and changing the variable for the actual map png would be a simple task, but i've been testing and tweaking and banging my head against this for two hours now with no results except "Their mods work, yours doesn't, solution unclear". To be clear: I have no intention of stealing their content and reposting it as my own. I just want a simple mod for my solo game and I had thought copying their code would work.
  7. I have a mod that adds new traits. Some of these traits add items to the player on spawn. However, I'm unable to add items that aren't in Base without causing mod errors. I assume I need to somehow properly reference these non-Base items from "camping" and so on. Could someone help? For instance, when I use: iteminv.AddItem("camping.CampfireKit"); I just get errors. All items in Base work however.
  8. I made some custom tiles for my map, but they don't show ingame. i also made some signs and they work just fine in game but these new ones not, don't known why these don't load ingame. as you can see they work fine on editor but they don't load ingame but the others i made on the same pack file work just fine. i have added them to the .pack file following this tutorial: the first ones i added work just fine but the second tileset don't and i did the same process (they are not wall overlays as i stated on the pictures they are just tilesets.) maybe have something to do with the .tiles file? also i noticed that when i added some flood lamps from the vanilla lightning_outdoor_01 they also don't show thanks in advance.
  9. Hello! I want to create mod that will add new skin colors in "Create character" tab, but can't find what method from SurvivorDesc class I should use. It is quite understandable with adding new hair or trouser colors: BaseGameCharacterDetails.DoHairColorNew = function() SurvivorDesc.addHairColor(ColorInfo.new(0.60000000000000000,0.33000000000000000,0.66000000000000000, 1)) SurvivorDesc.addTrouserColor(ColorInfo.new(0.60000000000000000,0.33000000000000000,0.66000000000000000, 1)) end Events.OnGameBoot.Add(BaseGameCharacterDetails.DoHairColorNew); But how can I add my own skin body colors? Please, help. Thank you in advance!
  10. Figured out, need this deleted.
  11. So I had an Idea for a mod, because I want to do some gaming and maybe some Twitch streams/Youtube in the coming year. I'm looking for someone who wants to make it or who knows how to because I've never made a mod and would need a lot of help to make it myself. I used to play Resident Evil Outbreak when it came out (As I'm sure most zombie fans did) and 2 things I have always wanted: 1. A Remake (And I have some hope with the remakes we have been seeing so fingers crossed!) And 2. An open world Resident Evil Game. So I've been playing PZ under the sandbox to try and recreate the Raccoon City Incident by changing the settings and so far it has been very enjoyable and I feel I'm pretty close to a classic Raccoon City Apocalypse. I have had a lot of fun so far and I think it could be an amazing experience. But I'm missing 2 very important things for the experience to be complete: 1. A Mod that effects how the virus kills you and adds items related to that. TL:DR Virus fills a meter from attacks and over time, when at 100% you become the zombies. Can be stopped temporarily with certain medical items, some craftable. Typically once infected you know that it's over and that you will die in X days. No ifs ands or buts, no delays. The change would be to make the infection follow a gauge that could be checked under the health menu, from 0.00% to 100.00% Like in the RE:Outbreak Games. Once attacked by a zombie and injured your gauge would increase 10% for a scratch or 30% for a bite, then the gauge would steadily increase by 1% per real world hour (1 In game day) Alternatively, you could start infected and then it would slowly increase by 1% per in game day and then jump up when attacked as before, giving you a soft limit of 100 days. The infection could be TEMPORARILY paused by using some items: (Times listed are in real world time, not in game time) 1 Green Herb stops the meter for 10 Minutes, Painkillers and Mixed Herb (G/G) stop the meter for 15 Minutes, Mixed Herb (G/G/G) or 1 Blue Herb can stop the meter for 20 Minutes, Mixed Herb (R/G) can stop the meter for 30 Minutes, Antibiotics and Mixed Herb (R/G/B) stops the meter for 45 minutes, Anti Virus Pill stops the meter for 50 minutes, Antivirus Pill (L) stops it for 1hour 30 minutes. Green, Red and Blue herbs can be found rarely in the forest zones (In order of rarity) by foraging, the Green or Red can be used to disinfect wounds and the Blue one can also fight normal wound infections. The Herbs can be mixed with each other and to make pills IF you have a high enough medical skill and some supplies: Some recipes I have thought of: Combining the Herbs into R/G and R/G/B mixes. No skills needed, but will need 1 mortar and pestle and 1 piece of paper alongside the herbs. Gives a moderate amount of Medical experience. To Make a basic Anti-Virus Pill: Medical LVL 3 or 5 Tools: Mortar and pestle, Heat Source (Lighter/Matches, campfire, lit stove or grill), a Spoon One Of: Vitamins, Painkillers, Empty Pill Casings (Item would need to be part of mod) One Mixed Herb (R/G) To Make an Anti-Virus (L) Pill: Medical LVL 5 or 7 Tools:Mortar and Pestle, Large Heat Source (campfire, lit stove or grill), a Sauce pan/Frying Pan/Pot/Baking Pan/Roasting Pan One Antibiotics One Mixed Herb (R/G/B) Makes 2 pills Now the important thing is that these pills won't stop wound based increases from zombies, and they do not reverse the gauge at all. You will eventually succumb, just a matter of how/when. 2. And the second thing needed for it would be an advanced customizable zombies mod. There are some mods out there that offer bits and pieces of what I'm looking for but none that offer the full package and most conflict when installed together. TL:DR A mod to store zombie 'templates' and have a way to control each templates spawn rate. Each template would store their senses strengths, physical stats and speed stat, it would also allow them to be dressed in a specific way on spawn. Basically I need a mod that would allow templates to be created much like how the zombie population can be customized in sandbox. The template would include: Zombie stats like: Strength, Speed, sight, hearing, smell and Durability multipliers. The multipliers would go from 0.1 - 20.0 times the regular population stats. Appearance including whether they are a skeleton or not and what clothing they wear. The percentage of the population they would spawn in as from 0.00001% -100.00% I'm hoping to be able to make templates for the major BOWs from REs 2/3 and maybe some of the others. ---------- For example MR X could be like: (Assuming zombies are set to normal where applicable) Strength 5.0 Speed 1.3 (On fast shamblers setting) Sight 2.0 Hearing 5.0 Smell 2.0 Durability 10.0 Wears : Leather Long coat (Black) Black Hat Black Pants Military Boots (Black) Leather Gloves (Black) Percentage: 0.001% ------- While a Hunter Beta would be like: Strength 3.0 Speed 2.0 Sight 1.0 Hearing 2.0 Smell 7.0 Durability 2.0 (3.5 for remake version) Wears: Skeleton form Ghillie suit Percentage: 0.02 So If anyone knows some mods that work together and allow these kind of features, or knows how to make it or wants to, I'd love to hear about it! Happy new Year everyone, hopefully it will be a bit better than 2020.
  12. After some experimentation with getting a previous texture fixed, I'm unable to discern why the trees aren't displaying correctly in tilezed. I'm using the steam version of the toolsets, and had to change the directory where both editors read the textures from. All the textures load in correctly except for vegetation. It looks like it's specifically trying to load vegetation_trees_01 ? Any ideas? 🤔

  14. Hello, I’m totally a newbie at this editor and am trying to get it to work. I’m not sure I’m doing something wrong or where its supposed to be installed at, but currently when I enter the building editor I’m unable to see any of the objects. All I’ve done so far is download the editor and tiles and extracted them, I'm not sure how to tell the editor where the tiles are that are missing. I wanted to mess around with the building editor before I started mapping cells. Would appreciate the help (:

  18. Hey, so I was wondering if it would be possible to add an interaction button to zeds, nothing fancy, more like a proof-of-concept. If you press your right mouse button on an zed an small interaction button should pop up (like on anything else interactable), if i click it some function or so should be triggered. Im pretty new to modding Project Zomboid, im not quite sure where to start but I found some example LUA scripts from the devs located in: \media\luaexamples\ui But I dont know if its the right to look at, any tips or help would be appreciated.

  23. On server restart players houses are burning down for some reason. To my understanding it's a sleeping meta event they login and it's all burnt textures and the loot in the house is gone. How can I fix this from happening? People are leaving. I can't not be able to restart the server please help. It's not just houses it's safehouses. Both times the server was restarted a safehouse was burnt. The server is using these mods Hydrocraft, OGRM, OGRM Silencers, Nocturnal Zombies, Craft Helper, Filibuster Rhymes' Used Cars, Log Wall Gates and bedfordfalls, Slocanlake.
