Okay, I need some help from modders who know how to add buildings to the battlemap.

I am trying to add the BI-buildings to my mod. I have done every step from any forums, but I still got the same error.

I am working in a modfolder, and I have every item and building model copied etc. The final step however is not working and is very irritating.

I need to create the descr_item.db for the new buildings in my modfolder. When I just copy the descr_item.db and descr_item.txt from BI, the game starts. But when loading the new buildings on the map, I get lot of errors (the models are not found). However, after loading the city, all BI buildings are present, but the normal RTW buildings are gone.

So I decided to create the descr_items.db on my own, which leaves me with another error.


Having only the descr_items.txt, which contains:
; spot items
include di_spot_items.txt

include di_slot_fillers.txt

include di_wooden_walls.txt
include di_walls_roman.txt
include di_walls_greek.txt
include di_walls_eastern.txt
include di_walls_egyptian.txt
include di_walls_barbarian.txt

include di_nicks_roman_buildings.txt
include di_nicks_egyptian_buildings.txt
include di_nicks_greek_buildings.txt
include di_nicks_eastern_buildings.txt

include di_barbarian_buildings.txt

include di_wonders.txt
include di_foliage.txt

include di_kevins_buildings.txt
include di_bens_buildings.txt
include di_andrews_buildings.txt
include di_pauls_buildings.txt
include di_johns_buildings.txt
include di_joss_buildings.txt

include di_roads.txt

include di_animals.txt

include di_gates.txt

include di_ambient.txt

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

include di_barbarian_invasion.txt

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

the di_barbarian_invasion.txt is in the descr_items folder.

When I start the game I get this error:



Those files are not in the descr_items, and they are neither in the vanilla rtw folder. Where can I find those files?

Please help I want to add buildings myself later

Well, I had to fix the problem myself :P

Jaime gave me the needed file of descr_items.txt, and now I can add my own buildings into the game.

And the first building is:





This is going to be nice

A windmill? Cool!

Is it for show/decoration, or will it have some purpose like expanding the food capabilities, generating more income, etc?

Well seems people are quite about that picture lol. For some reason I have to re-extract the building over and over again with own additions, until the game finally recognise my idea

I've been in that thing. Nice to see it in a game as well.

That sometimes (damned near always) happens when games hit the age of ten or more... Be glad we still exist!

The windmill looks really nice. The other structures adds uniqueness to each settlement. Dagovax, are you still modding RTW? Can you help me with a model. I just want to attach a shoulder flap.
