 Asteroid base appears in FRED but not in FSO....help?

I created my own table for it, using Arcadia as template, so Im guessing theres issues there.

  • FRED needs lambdas!
Run a debug build of FS and load the mission. The error messages should tell you what's wrong.

[edit] the subsystems on the model don't match the ones in the table (assuming you haven't changed the pof). The model only has a "sensors" subsystem, not a 1 and 2, and it has a "reactor" subsystem that isn't in your table. There may be more discrepancies but I'm too lazy to look for them and debug should tell you.

Thank you, I'll check that out.

Mismatched table and pof would make an entire model not appear?

Dunno, I've always caught those with debug builds so idk what a regular build would do. Could easily be another issue entirely, but the mismatched table is a problem anyway.

Mismatched subsystems (to my knowledge) actually don't do anything in regular builds...to my knowledge.
As in, subsystems on the POF not in the table is "fine", from what I've seen - game just ignores the fact that those subsystems exist - subsystems with models will just be part of the hull as if it didn't have the $subsystem= entry, etc, though debug will still complain.
 
Subsystems on the table and not in the POF...is more of a problem, especially if you try to reference it in FRED and whatnot, since it can't find the subsystem.

If you're running into errors its a good idea to clean up everything debug complains about first, even if you don't think it could be directly responsible - you never know.

Doesn't a $rotation time: of zero make models oddly disappear in game? Set it to something high instead (the Arcadia uses 200, 200, 200 IIRC). I might be on crack or something, but I thought that was the case. :nervous:
