Sphere custom housing
Hi,

i´m currently testing custom housing function to evaluate if it would be good to put on one freeshard where i´m playing or not and i found out that i´d like to have more items added there to use for building.

As far as i know, i can edit walls.txt, misc.txt etc. to see more items in menu but when i tried that sphere won´t allow me to to add them (make them orange color and says something about illegal structure when i try to confirm building) or adds them with another item that i don´t want there (that happened with grass items (like ID 0x1782) where i just wanted to put these grasses over dirt but adding it creates also basic grass tile under it so that grass item isnt even visible the way i wanted = useless to add it) - i dont want to use it as landtile but like wall or something - to be above chosen landtile item.

I especially wanted to modify fences as there are some missing maybe later add some land / roof tiles (shard custom art there), those grasses to be able to create path to house etc.

So my question is - does anyone here made modifications in those text files and if so is it possible to add more items / what do i need to modify to get those "new" items work (like modify tiledata, add something to scripts)?

RE: Sphere custom housing
you must edit the file (walls.txt, misc.txt, etc) on the server too
if you edit only on the client, the server will think that this player is trying to "cheat" creating a invalid/disabled item

RE: Sphere custom housing
ok when I don´t have same files I get these warnings and parts are not added to design:
19:01:WARNING:Invalid item 0861 being added to building 040001fe3 by 01.
19:04:WARNING:Invalid item 0877 being added to building 040001fe3 by 01.

when I have same files for sphere and client I can place those items without warnings but they stay orange like they cannot be placed alone (like when you add sole roof tile or wall on second floor where they cannot hold) and on commit i get info:
Illegal object. House not legal, not committing!

for test I even tried to replace (not just add one more) line
13 2 0 2226 2227 2228 2229 2243 2244 2245 2246 0 Fences 3
with those items i want to have
13 2 0 2144 0 2145 0 2167 2168 2186 2187 0 Fences 3

but with same result => not working

any idea what am I doing wrong?

Are they scripted? It means... they have ITEMDEF?
Did you checked the RESDISP on account?

RE: Sphere custom housing
your server doenst have these 2 items scripted, you need to create the ITEMDEF to make it able to use on custom house engine

I think a empty itemdef is enough
Code:
[ITEMDEF 0861]
[ITEMDEF 0877]

RE: Sphere custom housing
[ITEMDEF 085c]
DEFNAME=i_fence_wood_3
RESOURCES=25 I_BOARD
CATEGORY=Buildings - Fences
SUBSECTION=Wooden Fence 3
DESCRIPTION=@
DUPELIST=085d,085e,085f,0860,0861,0862,0863,0864,0865,0877,0878

[ITEMDEF 085d]
//wooden fence
DUPEITEM=085c

[ITEMDEF 085e]
//wooden fence
DUPEITEM=085c

[ITEMDEF 0860]
//wooden fence
DUPEITEM=085c

[ITEMDEF 0861]
//wooden fence
DUPEITEM=085c

085d and 085e are in basic misc.txt and are working fine
0860 and 0861 are in new line and cannot be added

well these aren´t even new items and also i´m using 7.0.35.6 client so far without problem with seing any item so i think resdisp is ok..

in attachmen is screen of how I see those two basic and newly added items..

RE: Sphere custom housing
make sure your sphereserver doors.txt, floors.txt, misc.txt, roof.txt, stairs.txt and walls.txt match those of your client's, this is mandatory.

RE: Sphere custom housing
ok that previous problem will be solved with custom addon to housing function ..

now another problem appeared:

when I build house somewhere with higher Z - at least its doing with z=30 (for example on isle thats on coords 1273,537,30 on default map) then when i try to build any roof it will jump to coords 30 higher then where i wanted to build them..

i built layer 1 roof in on first floor and on sync or commit it will jump to second floor like z=z+30 .. any idea why is it doing this? this problem is only with roofs and I haven´t changed anything in roof.txt so far

foundation on z=0 => first row of roof placed in height 4 after commiting roofZ=4
foundation on Z=5 => first row of roof after adding in height 9 => after commiting roofZ=14
foundation on z=10 => first row in height 14 => after commiting roofZ=24

etc.
sphere = nightly from 6th october
