Quick question about city style

Post by KyleKos » Thu Apr 12, 2007 12:48 am

I have noticed in some maps from this site (Wyoming Valley for example) and in the original game maps (Mesa Madness) based on American regions have European city and track styles. I was wondering if there is a way to change euro-style to American style city to fit the map more realistically?

If you go into RRT_Cities of each map you will find BuildingUS and BuildingEURO along with things like StatueofLiberty and EiffelTower. You can delete all the ones you don't want to show in the map.

And Welcome to the Group :D

I did that but when i try to load the map the game just crashes to desktop? I believe I deleted something I wasn't supposed to or deleted it wrong?

Thanks

OK, first tip, do a web search for Notepad++. It has been a while since I downloaded it, but I think there is an XML plugin for it. You can set windows to use this program anytime you open an XML. When I opened your file the first thing it said was that there was a mismatch at line 243. Well, what it did was match 1 open with 1 close and that is where IT figured the error was. Line 218 is missing, the </Model> close for StatueofLiberty.

Another program, XML Marker, gave 2 errors. There is only the one, but that one kinda messed with it's mind.

The third program I use, XML Notepad 2007, stated that the 'Model' start tag on line 216 does not match the end tag of 'RRTModels', Line 243.

Soyou see, with 3 programs that are free, you can find problems more easily. The first and last ones (and maybe the 2nd) also have indenting capibilities which make it easier for you to make changes in XMLs off the Editer.

class dismissed......

Ya, if you've fixed them correctly. I've found that the only way to learn is try, try, try. Then pat yourself on the back when you get it right......
