I thought once upon a time there was a way to export your character and vehicle between worlds. Does such a thing exist?
I used it just a few days ago to transfer a character from a mostly unmodded world to a heavily modded world. No muss. Character transport still works just fine. I haven’t messed with vehicle exporting but I imagine it will work just fine too.
Since the old website may go down at the end of the month, here’s the discourse link for the link above: Releasing my Cataclysm Character + Vehicle Transfer Utility
I’ve had issues transporting vehicles between worlds. Transfer tool just crashes whenever I try.
@psyxypher I’ve contacted jrw-git here: https://github.com/jrw-git/cataclysm_utility/issues/1 Could you give more details about the crash?
I’m not sure what more details I can give other than this, and I’m not sure this will be helpful; but here goes:
Essentially, when trying to export a vehicle, upon selecting a world to export the vehicle from, it’ll usually not register any unique vehicles in that world. Other times, when it does, it’ll crash upon selecting a specific vehicle, usually running a lot of code before crashing.
Ok. I’ve relayed that to jrw-git.
Hi everyone, I’m the author of the cataclysm utility. I haven’t touched it in quite some time, but I fired it up with CDDA version 6950 and it worked ‘okay’. It crashed trying to save a vehicle once, but I didn’t catch any errors. Subsequently it worked for transferring characters and I did transfer a complex RV successfully, with only a minor positioning error when loaded.
I’ll take a further look at it in the next few days, using the most recent version of CDDA.
Glad to see there’s still some interest!
I generally just copy the .sav file and the map tile my character is on with my vehicle to the new world’s save directory.
Copying the .sav file seems straightforward enough, but how does step 2 work?
Has there been an updated release for the Transfer Utility?
