    Please reverse\correct the error messages related when data names of settlements do not match display names.

    Example: {London}Glasgow

    When entering 'London' in the script an error is displayed, whereas 'Glasgow' gets accepted.

    See attached sample from Rage of dark Gods - all 98 errors are related to that, making it a long winded affair when looking for actual errors.

    Which versions of M2TW does this work with? I have my files all laid out in the data folder and put the specific ones into a "text" folder. When I select the data folder as the path, the files go through, but then it finds errors. Specifically:


    Line 2395 - Error: Invalid Effect line, expected '<Effects/Religious_Belief/Religious_Order> <Attribute/Religion> <int>', found: Effect Authority

    Line 10168 - Error: Invalid Epithet line, expected 'Epithet <epithet_VnV>', found: Epithet The Divine

    How do I address these?

    In the export_descr_advice file, I keep getting errors that state the number of arguments for certain conditions is wrong, like UIVisible and AdviseRecruit. Is there a comprehensive guide out there to show how to deal with the error types? If not, can someone put up a quick explanation or couple of screenies to show how to fix these errors such as those on lines 0097-0100 and 1211-1234?

    The line requires three things, the line only has two items on it.

    Line 10168 - Error: Invalid Epithet line, expected 'Epithet <epithet_VnV>', found: Epithet The Divine

    How do I address these?
    The VnV can only be one word, yours has two words The and Divine, the entry should read Epithet The_Divine or something similar.

    To find out what conditions require what arguments you'll need to grad the docudemons for RTW/BI.

    I have a remaining issue with the checker: it does not recognize custom factions for the Combat_V effects. Could that be pulled from the descr_sm_factions and descr_religions files instead of from a preset list?

    Also confirmed that the HasANCType condition is indeed not working in the EDCT - it simply gets ignored as if it is not present.

    Yes, everything with ancillaries only works in EDA. Good thing that trait triggers work there as well (in theory, all triggers might as well be placed in EDA)

    HasAncType also works in campaign_script. Maybe guilds and faction standings as well (don't know).

    You have to install ATVTW into it's own folder and then run the executable (TWScriptEditor) of it. Then create a setting for your mod by pointing to the data folder of your mod.


    There may be a formatting problem with your text\export_ancillaries.txt file. Open a thread in the text and editing workshop forum and attach your file for someone to have a look.

    Because these documents are required for the tool to run. You haven't unpacked your files correctly !

    I realize this tool has not been updated for MANY years, but the "settlement data name error" problem is awful, and makes it very hard to use the tool. In EB2 we have literally hundreds of triggers that include "and SettlementName", and it's just a nightmare to click through all these bogus errors.

    I'm assuming that the SettlementName condition in M2TW works the same in triggers as it does in scripts where it uses the in display name of the settlement as opposed to the internal name?

    Never used the display name (or have seen it being used) in a script or traits\ancillaries, but it is possible that it works. Given that display names can be changed via script and manually (in game) make it far from ideal to use. The problem with the checker however is that it doesn't accept the internal name at all.

    It also doesn't take to custom religions and factions in the Combat_V_ effects line if memory saves, but those are usually relatively few entries if at all.

    Features to come:

    • Add ability to identify custom trait/ancillary attributes not present in vanilla
    • Add the ability to modify and add to the traits/ancillaries files


    Hey! So I was wondering, does this have yet the functionality to add new/ unique/ original traits and ancillaries?

    I'm looking for a way to make my own ancillaries and traits without causing CtD (I'm just editing export_descr_ancillary with notepad++) -- the 'unpacked' text file, but not I think the uncompressed VnV.txt ... trying to figure out a way to either add traits to the unpacked compressed file, or edit the uncompressed VnV.txt file. Thanks!

    Thank the Gods for this Validator!

    EDIT:

    I'm receiving messages that uses of the conditions "CharacterAge" and "I_FactionLeaderTrait" are not defined. Does the program recognize these conditions, or am I suffering a syntax error somewhere?
    Hey, for clarification, what does Transferrable do? Does it give to another random famility member when the character dies of natural causes? or when the character dies by any means? Or does it allow for one general to steal the ancillary of another general by defeating (and killing him) in combat?

    Dealing with special equipment ancillaries in a mod so this info would be quite useful. Thanks.
