custom.arc
« on: 22 September 2021, 09:59:47 »
I noticed that the game doesn't pick up on custom arc files. I made a mod, put all the assets in an arc and referenced these assets beginning with the arc's name: custom\npc\...
Is there an index table somewhere (I can't find it) that lists all arcs the game should look for?

Not sure if this wht you mean,

When you build your mod in the next session, ( when you re open art manager) the game will delete all your custom arcs inside you custommaps/mod folder. You need to copy then back and replace then again in your folder.

You need always to have a backup of your custom arc in a folder in your desktop (for exemple).
"Welcome to new home, be nice and strong ! "

Please forgive my ignorance... I do try to google and search the tutorial pdfs.

Maybe I'm doing this wrong.

When I build my mod, the AM creates a levels.arc and a mod.arz, but it doesn't convert the custom assets folder to an arc file... I placed the custom assets folder inside: Working\CustomMaps\Mod\assets. Is that not correct?

So, then I tried another way: I manually converted the custom folder into a custom.arc and copied that to the resources folder of the game. The database references the mod assets as: custom\npc etc. so it should work, but it doesn't. The game does not see the assets in the custom.arc...
