Hello. I’m making a very small, basic mod that does effect the way the game generates cities. Basically, a custom basement that is specifically for a neckbeard.
I’ve tried doing this:
However, I’m at a loss on how I can inject my basement into the game without modifying core files. I’ve tried using some sort of add-on code that doesn’t do anything, it starts at line 94 in the pastebin.
Any help would be heaps appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Edit: After seeing the horrendous formatting, I’ve moved all the code to pastebin. Cheers.
Your basement looks okay. I’ve looked into a modding guide but it’s quite difficult to find
I did find this but it’s a bit out of date:
Using a mod allows you to enable and disable it trough the mod manager in-game.
I think your basement is a candidate for the mainline, why not submit it on Github and get it added?
Someone graciously messaged me on discord a solution, and since I’m vehemently against people just saying “Figured it out, thanks”, I’ll share it with everyone.
ralreegorganon: @Odieman You want a region overlay like this: https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/blob/1d6366e6881a1479d9874ac234709dc68f23f4a1/doc/REGION_SETTINGS.md#region-overlay
A region overlay does this, so if you want a custom overmap tile or whatever, something that you can sort of ‘inject’ into the base game without touching it, this seems to be the way. If I find out something different, I’ll be sure to edit this post. Otherwise, this is the proper method and any admins or moderators browsing this thread can lock it.
