      Hi everyone. It appears that the update to the new forum has affected the format of the majority of signatures (adding extra spaces, changing sizes etc.). Due to this, could everyone please check their own signature, ensuring that it complies with the site rules. See the http://www.emergency-planet.com/tos.html/ or http://www.emergency-planet.com/topic/16848-acceptable-signature-sizes/ for more information.  We'll give it a few weeks to give enough time to edit signatures, after that the unnecessarily large signatures will simply be removed. Thanks for your cooperation. Regards, EMP Staff.

Trouble with changing models in mods.

Recommended Posts

So, a while back I desired to make something along the lines of the 90s submod, but with the Montana mod’s map (because it’s an awesome map!) I read up on how to take models from other mods (F.Y.I this mod is 100% private) and i changed one of the fire trucks from Montana Mod with a fire truck from the 90’s submod. It looked like it went well, but, now i cannot connect hoses to the truck, if anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Go into the editor and enter the "edit children" section. Then go to the "superchilds" tab and add connectors. They must be named "connector0", "connector1" and so on. You can only have a maximum of four.

I tried this and it didn't work, so i think i did something wrong. I found a fire truck pump child and added 4 of them and named them accordingly. I started up the mod and it didn't work.

Stupid dog, you made me look bad!

Did you set the vehicle as a GTF?

What is the base mod you used? Which scripts are you running? LA's or Montana's?

Haha. 

I’m using Montana as a base mod and i’m Running Montana’s scripts. I have not set the vehicle as a GTF (I’ll try that) and the model i’m Using in the 1990 seagrave from the 90’s submod (the one that replaces engine 2)

Montana's scripts are easier to work with. The original LA ones were configured in a very unusual way.

The model shouldnt matter, the steps will apply for every vehicle you put in regardless of vintage.

I have another problem.

I was testing the mod after putting some more changes in, and the water supply script half-works, but you cannot connect a hose to the fire truck.

It might be caused by the LWS you implemented. Though, why would you need to add it in if you're using Montana? Or am I missing something?

I am using the 1990 seagrave from the 90s submod which is not designed to have a water supply script. It has a water supply but you cannot connect a hose to it. I’m wondering if i need a fifth connection.

I could not find the water_supply child or the pump_controller child

Okay, so it all comes down to just the names of the child objects?

Yes. Be sure to press enter after typing the name in the box. Em4 has issues with saving the names of childs.

I've tried this, but it won't work. I looked to see that if i didn't save it, but I did.

Can I see some screenshots of the childs you put together?

I am assuming you did not edit the fire hose script in any way, so the fault must be in the childs.
