World Background Spawner
V2.2

[Image: 2ij2o1l.jpg]

V2.0+ Now able to set and spawn all/multiple terrain types with variable gembit gaps in a single operation.

Dialog contains default settings as tested for decent coverage, ALL figures in the dialog are editable to suit your needs

This script allows you to spawn what I consider "background" gembits across your map.
The boring ones.. all the animals and occasional hostiles, because it's such a drag running around the map spawning all those.

It does NOT spawn dungeons at all, and will not spawn town NPCS, except some town type critters if you have it enabled in the defs. (towns being defined by their guarded regions)

You should be spawning those areas yourself anyway to avoid having a carbon copy of other shards


The latest version of this script reads the map sizes based on what is set in sphere.ini making spawning any map or any size childs play.
With added offset and cutoff definitions you can start spawning after a certain x position and stop spawning at a certain x position, ideal for any custom (or default) map that has dungeon areas located off to the left or right of the map.

Script does not spawn T2A area due to the landscape layout there is an increased chance that gembits would be dropped in awkward places

v1.5:
Fixes an issue of roam distance not being correctly set on some gembits resulting in grouping of spawns.

v1.6:
CHANGED Script now reads map sizes based upon .ini settings and as such will support any maps you have defined (including additional or custom maps)
ADDED dungeon_cutoff def, should be used for mapplanes like 0 and 1 where the dungeon area is off to the right off the map.
ADDED dungeon_offset def, should be used for mapplanes where the dungeon area is off to the left of the map.

v1.7:
All settings can now be changed in defs with no need to edit the rest of the script.
Timers, Amounts, Min & Max time may now be set for different terrain types all at once
REMOVED general land on/off toggle.
REMOVED "additional" town spawn groups in favor of the one defined in spawns.scp
ADDED new spawn settings t_jungle & t_forest, also added to sphere_types.scp (included in zip, but added to standard server download file as of 3/11/12)

v1.8:
FIXED: Replaced the function that sets t_normal tiles in a guarded region as t_town which was omitted during the overhaul.

v1.9:
NEW: "Red Spawns" script will now randomly place monster spawn groups according to terrain and % chance set in defs
NEW: "Graveyard Spawning" script will now place undead spawns in graveyards according to settings in defs

v1.9a
Updated instructions for use with SCP

v2.0
NEW: Dialog driven settings
NEW: Spawn all your terrains with their different settings in a single operation.

v2.1
Updated for use with new nightly script pack
ADDED: Mine & Cave spawning since new script pack contains those groups.

v2.2
Minor bug fixes


An important note regarding the spawning of graveyards on map 1.

Because of the way in which this script detects graveyards and cemeteries (by region name) and because these areas are not named in the sphere_map1.scp file they will not spawn.

In order to spawn them as graveyards and cemeteries you must add the regions into the sphere_map1.scp
To do this is simply to search for them in sphere_map0.scp and copy them over, remembering to change the map plane co-ordinates from 0 to 1 when saving them in the sphere_map1.scp file.

Alternatively you can use these:
Code:
