Q: How can I add/replace a terrain texture? My experiments didn't work.


Recommended Posts

I wanted to add a nice grass lawn texture to the terrain texture with the goal being to create a new block type, similar to terrDirt, that could be placed into the terrain adding grass to replace whatever was there (in my case, sand; I want a nice lawn in front of my base).  I've got the XML files correct, I think:

 

recipes.xml

<configs>
<append xpath="/recipes">
<recipe name="terrGrassyDirt" count="1" craft_time="1">
	<ingredient name="resourceClayLump" count="16"/>
	<ingredient name="resourceYuccaFibers" count="2"/>
</recipe>
</append>
</configs>

 

materials.xml

<configs>
<append xpath="/materials">
<material id="Mgrassy_dirt">
	<property name="Extends" value="Mdirt"/>
	<property name="stepsound" value="grass"/>
	<property name="MaxDamage" value="200"/>
</material>
</append>
</configs>

 

blocks.xml

<configs>
<append xpath="/blocks">

</block>
</append>
</configs>

 

 

Things I tried:

 

1) I use UABE to modify \7 Days To Die\Data\Bundles\terraintextures by replacing the existing sod.png (#308) texture with my grass texture (same size, also png) with "IsReadable=false".  Placing a terrGrassyDirt continued to show the splatmap terrain texture for that location (sand).

 

2) I use UABE to modify \7 Days To Die\Data\Bundles\terraintextures by replacing sod.png texture with my grass texture with "IsReadable=true".  Placing a terrGrassyDirt continued to show the splatmap terrain texture for that location (sand).

 

3) 1) I use UABE to modify \7 Days To Die\Data\Bundles\terraintextures by replacing the existing sand.png texture with my grass texture.  I just wanted to see if changing the terraintexture file did anything at all.  The sand in the game remained sand, not grass.

 

 

What am I missing?
