After Modification the Materials are not loaded automatically.

Post by fabbromix »

Dear Users,

I wanted to make some changes on a mod downloaded from the web on Addons DAF-XG-XG + 2021 (Thanks SCS-Blade-1974) because the Dummy (Photo-1) got stuck on the rear exhaust, so I decide to make a change to the Trlr_cables (Photo-2) moving it above.

Once everything is loaded I realize that Zmod I open the 4x2 frame does not load the Materials in the car (photo-3 I remember that on old Mods it loaded everything automatically) at this point I try to identify in the Mod where the DDS are has it assigned unfortunately I can't find any DDS to associate.

It has this point I would not know in the least where to find them and if there are associated DDS in game.

I decide to continue with the modification anyway, hoping that once the Mod is loaded again I will see everything as before the modification.

I go to Game and here's the surprise .... the frame and everything that made it up didn't load any material (Photo-5), while the Trlr_cables modified it (Photo-4).

I ask if any of you can help me understand how to load or possibly tell Mods where to look for the DDS assigned to it.

Did you also specify the DAF DLC as base or mod folder when importing.

Otherwise the Z-Mod can not find the materials.

Thanks for the reply.

I load everything from the same source folder (I was used to this in the past).
This Addons as you well know I hook it to the original DAF 2021 Mod.

Check the sticky "Paths and folders guide" topic. I feel like you've messed folders setup on some step and got a misconfigured PMD files. The "base scs" and "mod folder" should not be the same.

Oleg, you are absolutely right I had to load the materials from both the DAF-DLC mod and DAF-Addons and load the new Mat / Tobj in their respective source folders.
