  1. Morning all, I was hoping for a bit of help with a strange, but annoying, glitch I've been encountering. The errors occur in Nitrogen maps and last night in Darkness Falls. Now to be clear, I'm not blaming this on either of those great mods, I think the issue is my end. So the problem is I'm sometimes seeing random out of place blocks, not a big deal but some of them cover whole POI's. They are not there in the world, it is a visual issue only. I can pass straight through them and exiting/re-entering the game normally removes them. They also happen at random, not every POI, normally when exploring a new area or loading a new chunk of the world in. I've only encountered this in Nitrogen and DF, never in Nav or standard RWG maps. To give you a better idea here are some screenshots, if I'd thought about this I'd have taken some better shots but I think this helps explains the problem. https://imgur.com/1hN1QtE https://imgur.com/a/heFYuOo https://imgur.com/a/2IhdSDZ https://imgur.com/a/c8xsQeU https://imgur.com/a/ejtieDx My PC is pretty old but runs the game fine. Specs if this helps, i5 4670k 16GB DDR3 980ti I have the game installed on an SSHD. I could put it on my SSD in case that is an issue? I was thinking a memory problem personally. I'd love a fix for this as I love how quickly Nitrogen chucks out decent maps and I really want to give DF a proper go but when I see things like this it just kills the immersion for me and I normally switch off. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Thats given me some good ideas, thanks. I may have to try mining away from home but I think I'll push a little deeper first and try my luck.
  3. Thanks for this, but I'm not digging down from the surface, I've dug a shaft down about 20 blocks and am mining through stone looking for ore to give me something to do overnight. I've branched out in a few directions from there but no sign of ore. I'm just wondering if I'm wasting my time is all. Not that thousands of stone isn't useful
  4. Thanks for the pointers guys. I should clarify I do know about surface ores, the mines I'm making now are normally done overnight when I've nothing better to do, so I'm just trying to find out if the surface ores and the few blocks they go down are it, or if there are ores deep down, like where I am. Sorry if the post wasnt clear
  5. Hi all just a quick sanity check. I've been away from the game for a while and have only dabbled a little in a18 but I've set up shop in the desert and started to mine under my house. I'm around 20ish blocks down and have mined a fair bit in branches and only found stone so far. So I'm just checking are ores still underground in the desert? So as not to waste my time/build myself up for disappointment 😆 Thanks

    Hi do these files just get chucked in the prefab folder I assume? I really like these, especially your crane pack. Nice work.
  7. Hi there, I'm sorry if this has been asked but I couldn't find a definitive answer by searching. Does this work with 18.4, I;ve recently updated from 18.3 and generated a new map last night and some buildings and blocks looked off, like they were covered in a near translucent block you couldn't see through or destroy, but could walk through. I didn't have this issue with 18.3 so was just wondering. Thanks.
  8. Sounds like a bug there. I have been playing on 18.4 (rolled back for other bug related reasons) and I could scrap cans and nails.
  9. Nevermind I think it was Firefox, working in Chrome. Cheers
  10. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong here, but when I try either link nothing downloads?
  11. Thanks for that and for making the maps. I've not played much since a17 dropped, but I'm starting toget back into it now.
  12. I believe 'Zuhehi Territory' would be a map you previously generated. I've found a few like that myself - the game seems to assign random names and as the maps are saved to disk now that would explain the gen time as the new generated worlds are made from scratch. Now can anyone explain what the "pregen" maps are? Are they basically random worlds the pimps threw in as an alternative to New Random Gen and Navezgane? Whats the difference between those and a new random gen world?
