  1. I've tried to mod in a prefab into my game. When I get close to it, the prefab all but disappears. Far away I can see it but once I get to about 100m or so, most of it disappears. Any clue as to why? I pressed F1 to see if any error messages popped up and there were none. Can anyone help?
  2. I just have a question about some files I have downloaded for a prefab. Are MPEG-2 TS Video files the same as TTS files?
  3. I forgot to mention I am a complete noob when it comes to this tech stuff. You guys probably don't even consider it tech stuff but it's way over my head lol I say this because I don't know what the mesh and stuff is. I have another post in general discussion I believe where the nice man Lazman (I think is his username) has been very helpful. He posted step by step instructions and gave me the correct files and location for the prefab (it's the Eden Mall). I made sure all of the files were in the correct place. I started a new game of Nav and went to the location given. It just disappears on me and I don't know why. I will say that when I tried to do it manually (adding the prefab in myself) the same thing happened but it would load a bit off the ground or in the terrain. At least this one is placed in a good spot and doesn't seem to be off the ground or in the terrain. Here is the URL for the thread that I started and Laz Man was trying to help me. I followed his instructions exactly.
  4. Hi so I'm needing some help with loading a prefab into my game. I've received some help in the past but nothing has worked so far. I've included clips of what happens when I get close to it. The very nice person who helped me in the past gave me step by step instructions and it worked for him. Based on these images, can anyone tell me what is going wrong and if there is anything I can do to get it to work? When I pushed F1 coming up to the building, no error messages were shown. It just disappears for me.
  5. Hello. I tried to send you a message and it would not let me. I'm sorry to bother you but I just read your reply to a post on why a player is receiving lag issues with his i3 Alienware computer. You seem to know a lot about computers so I was wondering if you wouldn't mind me picking your brain for just a minute? I'm in the market for a new gaming laptop (a desktop if it's the right option). I trust the Intel products more (the i3 or i5 for example) and I trust in Nvidia more as well. I have a budget of about $1500-$2000 (but would absolutely love to go less if at all possible as there are others things I have been wanting for years as well but I am willing to spend that amount). I think I would like a SSD because I've read they are faster. Yeah, if you hadn't already noticed, I'm a complete novice when it comes to this kind of stuff. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
  6. I'm sorry I have taken a little break from trying. I just tried doing everything you instructed again. No difference. I was able to figure out how to take screen shots of what happened though. Here they are. The first one is what it looks like as I approach it. The second is what it looks like once I get close enough to it. It sort of just disappears. I pushed the F1 key and no bad text came up. I went back and pushed the F1 key and took a screen shot of it. Maybe I am wrong about the bad text but I don't see anything? I have no clue what is going on. Do you have any idea what it means?
  7. Well, I followed your instructions and unfortunately it did not work. It did somewhat load in at the place you set it to but whenever I get near it, the entire middle disappears. I step back from it and it somewhat loads in. I never saw it load in completely though. I tried to take a screen shot but I somehow turned Airplane mode on instead. Yes, I am that dumb and that much of a novice lol I truly appreciate you trying and taking the time to do all of that. I guess I'm not meant to play in it.
  8. I have posted in the forums twice now but I thought I would try again. I'm really digging the new update of the design. It looks nice. Anyways, I'm having trouble putting a prefab into my game. I've watched videos and have followed step by step instructions on how to do it and it will not work for me. I have talked to one of the creators of the prefab I want to put into my game and he could not help me. I have tried dozens upon dozens of times to get it right and no luck. If anyone has the knowledge and patience to try to help this novice person, I would very much greatly appreciate it. Stay safe!
  9. I posted a topic in another section of the forums but thought the general discussion might get more views so maybe someone can help me? I'm getting kind of desperate. I have tried so many times to load in a prefab without any success. I have had one of the makers of the prefab (it's the Eden mall) personally try to help but no luck. I watched his video and followed the instructions exactly. Each and every time the prefab does not load in the position I want. It either loads off the ground a little bit or in the terrain. I'll try to explain in as much detail as I can what my steps are and maybe someone can help me figure out what I am doing wrong. I load into Nav and go to the farmhouse in the crops section. I go into DM mode. I clear the section of land that I want. I do this by pressing Z and a blue box appears about the size of a wood frame. I start with one end of the section and basically go to the other end, making a big square when I press Z at the other end. I hold Shift+G to make it a bit taller and press K. I select Dynamic Prefab (I think that is it cause I don't have my game up atm) and click on clear space. I press the Backspace button and the space clears just fine. I go to the West corner of the cleared space and press Z again and the same wood frame size blue box appears. I press K again and click on Dynamic Prefabs again. I select the name of the mall from the list that's on the right side of the screen. I then click load prefab. And that is where it always messes up. There's a big lime green square that appears (I know that is normal but it is not in the place I have cleared) It either loads in just behind the farmhouse (where I have never even been to) and in the terrain or off the ground a little bit. I have noticed that when I try to load the prefab in and I'm standing just inside the cleared section at the corner, the same big lime green box appears but it is EXACTLY outside of the area I just cleared. The same results though, either in the terrain or just above the ground. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Could I have somehow messed up putting the download of the mall in my 7 Days To Die files? I have tried this using plain vanilla maps, Nitrogen maps and the Nav map. If anyone knows what I am doing wrong, please let me know. I would truly appreciate it. I've been wanting to play and experience this mall for weeks now and I just can't. And if you have read this far, sorry for the novel and I hope you have a great day/night. Stay safe!
  10. I have tried to do it in both actually. The first several attempts I did was in a NitroGen map. After about 10 or so attempts, I said F it and went on Nav to the farm house like in the video. Same results.
  11. As the title says, I really need help with putting a prefab into my world. I have watched several videos on how to do it. Something always goes wrong though. I even had one of the creators of the Eden Center mall try to help me with no luck. I watched his video on how to put the mall into a game and I followed the instructions to the letter. Every time though, it doesn't work. The prefab always ends up either in the air a bit or outside of where I've cleared the area and in the ground a bit. It's tough to explain what happens when I mess up but I will try. I know how to clear the area. That part works just fine. It is flat and I make sure I have enough room without making it too big. I know how to hold Shift + G to make it taller too. After I get all the cleared area set up, I go to the West corner of the cleared area. That's where the creator told me to go and it is where he goes in his video. I click Z and a blue box appears that's about the size of a wood frame. I then click K and click the second option (Dynamic Prefab I think, I don't have my game up at the moment) and then I click on the mall prefab to the right in the list. Once that is highlighted, I click on load prefab and then it just doesn't work. I always get a big lime green box (I know that's normal when it loads) but it is never where I have cleared my area. It is always exactly outside of where I've cleared. It makes it to where the mall is either off the ground a little bit and in the air or is in the terrain. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Also, I have noticed that if I am standing (or hovering cause I am in DM mode) just inside the area I have cleared and press Z and click on the prefab, a bigger lime green box appears all around the cleared area and somewhere the mall is loaded in but either always in the air a bit or in the terrain. I hope I have explained what is going on and I really hope someone can help me. I'd love to play inside the mall and have never been able to. If you have read this far, I thank you just for getting through that novel and I hope you have a safe day. If anyone can help me though, I'd very truly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
  12. I appreciate the help I received but unfortunately the links provided did not really help me. I would like to know what to do after you download the prefabs. How do I get the downloaded POI into my 7 Days To Die file? The links showed me how to place the mall in the game but not how to put the mall file into the 7 Days To Die file.
  13. Thank you for your advice and taking the time to reply. I will check those links out. Thank you again.
  14. So as the title says, I need help with getting those malls into a game. I have already downloaded both malls. I don't know what to do next, however. I know I need to put those downloaded files into my 7 Days To Die folder but how? I think I can figure out what to do after that. I have tried looking on-line and searching the forums and Google in help with this. I can not seem to find an explanation of how to get the prefabs in the folders though. I have only found ways if you actually build your own prefab in the game. That doesn't really help me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I thank you sincerely for reading this and I hope you have a great day/night.
  15. Hey that is it! Thank you! I swear I tried looking here for about half an hour searching through so many mods. I'm either blind or dumb. God I hope I just need glasses cause I start college in January and can't afford to be dumb lol Thank you again!
