Struggle to get a random gen map.....


Adr

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Every time we restart experimental when a new build comes out - I find it so hard to get a random gen map come up in the options (using a Nitrado Server).

 

Here is the relevant bit from the last successful build (b221):

 

<property name="ServerDisabledNetworkProtocols" value=""/>

<property name="GameWorld" value="Mavini Mountains"/>

<property name="WorldGenSeed" value="gyrocopter"/>

<property name="WorldGenSize" value="8192"/>

 

Yet this time when i just copied the whole file after a reinstall - the only options i get are Empty, Playtesting and Navezgane.

 

Even if change Gameworld to "RWG" it doesnt change the empty, playtesting, Navezgane option.

 

I am sure I am do something really stupid - but can anyone help me understand how to get a random gen map showing in the options list everytime I have to wipe the server?

 

Many thanks folks!

 

Adr.

GameWorld should be RWG.

WorldGenSeed and GameName need to match atm. I don't see GameName listed in your data above.

 

Here's the full list of options for an example.

 

<property name="GameMode" value="GameModeSurvival"/>

<property name="GameName" value="gyrocopter"/>

<property name="GameWorld" value="RWG"/>

<property name="WorldGenSeed" value="gyrocopter"/>

<property name="WorldGenSize" value="8192"/>

Thanks for the response mate :)

 

Gamename was Christmas in my quote - the map was Mavini Mountains.....

 

Tried what you suggested but it did not work.

 

If I Create a Folder called RWG in the Data/Worlds folder I do get the option for RWG. But it then creates Mavini mountains by itself.

 

Can you share your entire serverconfig.xml file so i can check everything? Wondering if it is a Nitrado thing......

Don't know if you're still having an issue but we got ours working tonight finally thanks to this post. In the Nitrado settings after you have changed everything in the serverconfig file, you will find a new option. To double check I went to single player, plugged in the name I wanted (Alexandria for reference sake) and it told me my game world was named New Utevi Valley (yours will be different). When I checked Nitrado, I found that in the game world drop down box, selected it and restart the server. Everything works just fine.

Yup - it tuns out I was not giving it enough time to generate the map.

 

Just needed to be patient is all and wait....

 

I also worked out how to control what biomes are generated as my lot were fed up with sweltering within a few seconds in a desert, crossing the road into snow only to freeze.

 

Currently running "Afterlife" random gen with pure Forest biome with a few touches of Burnt and wasteland..
