I tried posting this in support initially, to no avail hopefully someone could at least comment and say what info they’d need from me to help?
I’m trying to build a TC changing several aspects of the game including:
Dino character BPs and settings blueprints in primalearth/dinos and primalearth/dinos/base BPS respectively. Settings I used to change the multipliers of certain types of damage to certain or all dinos (explosive from 1.5 to 3.0 for example). The character blueprints I was going to make the tamed/wild sprint speeds of dinos equal, and possibly add the giga’s rage buff to all large carnivores/make the para/phioma passive tamable. Maybe at some point make a copy of each dino type and add in untamable ‘adult’ dinos.
Dinocharacter status component blueprints in coreblueprints: used to change the Giga’s health and the stamina cost of jumping for the roo/frog/saber
Coreblueprints/items/armour, changing cloth armour to have 1 armour per piece instead of 10, and fur armour to require far less fur.
In structures/thatch, structures/wood, structures/stone - changing brokenbystone, brokenbymetal, brokenbyexplosives to allow dinos to destroy buildings more realistically/faster
I followed this tutorial initially https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2xKkDmfyyY for the primalgamedata etc, and then copied the required files over to the mod folder, rebuilding the folder structure within the mod (for my benefit so I remembered where everything came from). I then edited the files I wanted to, compiled and saved them, and cooked/uploaded it to steam as a total conversion. so far as I’ve been able to determine while running the mod, nothing I changed has worked…
Now, I have a suspicion that I know somewhat where I’ve gone wrong, but I’m not sure how to fix it. Either:
The folder structure I made within the mod is meaning the files aren’t being read/recognised (fairly sure it doesn’t work that way, but I suppose it’s possible.
Or I need to point all the files I edited at the appropriate other files that were connected to the original. I thought the copied files overwrote the originals when the mod was installed, but I could quite easily be wrong there.
Or I should have created child instead of copies of all the files, and that’s why the files aren’t connected.
Or that tutorial isn’t appropriate for creating a total conversion and I’m missing a step somewhere.
I’m happy to provide any other information that might be useful, could anyone help me figure out what I’m doing wrong here?
