I made a map, but it won't start.

23 posts in this topic

Sorry but another noob question. I made a survival map (yes I'm tire of custom survival maps too, but I'm limited in skill) and I am allow to play it but the waves won't start or the national guard guy won't talk. I thought I had to wait a little because of a waiting time in the beginning but nothing happen for 5 minutes. Please help thank you.

I already did what both of you said before. Sorry let me clarify my situation more. Yes, I do have zombies spawning in and I do have a .nav file. Everything works but i can't get the HUD to say Wave 1, with the number of zombies remaining, and the health of the zones. And the national guard guy isn't talking like "we are the national guard and you must defend this area. In all, the game works but the game mode isn't working even if I labeled the beginning of the map name like nms_ .

A bit silly, but worth asking: do you have the overlord_wave_controller? I don't see anyone mentioning it...

I do have overlord_wave_controller and zombie helper whatever. It's weird, the survival match won't start but the zombies will still come.

You are missing func_safe_zones?

Reread this and you will find the problem i'm sure. Specifically here:

http://wiki.nomoreroominhell.com/wiki/Survival_Setup

"There are a few key things that are required for survival mode to work: zombie spawning, a wave controller, safe zones, chopper drop point and entry/exit points, a "3d nav mesh", and (optionally) safe zone supply + heal kits."

Edit: Link would help..

Oh that makes sense. I thought the chopper was optional. I was trying to make a map that doesn't requires the chopper supply drop. The whole point of this map is to manage the amount of ammo you have where there is no resupply or back up what so ever. i guess I'll make the chopper drop supplies in a unreachable zone. Thanks for telling me.

Yea you shouldn't need a chopper in your map to get it to work. My resupply crates are simply triggered to spawn in through I/O and nms still works and starts.

If you still cant figure it out upload the vmf and we can quickly look through it. Or add me on steam: ValuedPear05

How do I post the map file again?

Sorry it took so long as i had other stuff to do. Note there's no roof yet and the fog (func_dustcloud) and precipitation features are not working so I deleted them.

Well, you can use a file hosting service (I recommend mediafire for its practicality) and then link to it in a thread in the finished maps subsection in the mapping forum.

Uhm, you made a typo on the map name. It's mns_dusk_till_dawn.bsp instead of nms..

I renamed that bsp and generated a nav, it worked afterwards, with the waves and zombies spawning :)

Not sure if its just my end though, when i downloaded it was mns instead of nms however.

I almost feel that there needs to be a support group for these kinds of mistakes.

I've been mapping for over five years and I STILL make these kinds of mistakes. And it still stings, every time.

Every.

Single.

Time.

It's even worse when someone gives you the solution, but you know it can't be right because it was the first thing you tried doing, only to find out that they're right, and you only imagined trying it. On those days, I often decide to just take a long, ice-cold shower and just let the shame wash over me, as I contemplate where it all went so wrong. The next time that happens, which is inevitable, I might even go the extra mile and pay that old guy who lives down the street to hang outside my bathroom window and play a sad song on his cello, just to really help internalize the feelings of absolute failure. Then I think I'll make myself a sandwich. Ham on sourdough bread, lightly toasted, with spinach instead of lettuce and two slices of tomato, cut thick.

Yeah, that sounds like a good plan.

Thanks for all the help. Now I'm going to take a long cold shower and then eat some gruel with a side of hardtacks.

Aw man, don't make me hungry before lunch.
