Post Creating new activities in B25
Hello,

I'd like to create some new activity files for unitec, but I have no idea how. I copied the standard SkirmishDefense.lua file, renamed it to FleshFest.lua and added this to my index.ini:

Code:
AddActivity = GAScripted
   PresetName = Flesh Fest
   Description = Defend yourself against hordes and hordes of fleshies. Spawns Coalition and Ronin.
   SceneName = Ketanot Hills
   ScriptFile = UniTec .rte/Activities/FleshFest.lua
   PlayerCount = 3
   TeamOfPlayer1 = 0
   TeamOfPlayer2 = 1
   TeamOfPlayer3 = 2
   TeamOfPlayer4 = 3
   TeamCount = 4
   //CPUTeam = 1
   MinTeamsRequired = 2
   LuaClassName = FleshFest


It doesn't appear in-game though. What am I not seeing?
After this I replaced all instances of SkirmishDefense in the lua file with FleshFest, but still no go.

Gawd, why was it necessary to remove the support for .ini files?

How is the Activity loaded? Is it in its own ini file or something else like that?

Oops, nope. Thanks for spotting that. Teaches me not to stare into .ini files around 4 in the morning.

Doesn't make a difference though. I am getting the scary feeling that it needs to be added within base.rte. I don't get it.

Jus tested it. When my activity is added to activities.ini within base.rte it works:

I don't want mod users to need to modify their base.rte for every mod they download. Data, please fixed, thanks.

Weird indeed. I made a new rte, copied over the SkirmishDefense.lua, findreplaced the Lua class name and it's working just fine.
Perhaps try making the activity a standalone .rte then. Just make sure it gets loaded after your mod. The order is alphabetical.

Edit: Throwing it into a mod of mine made it disappear.
However, I got it back by placing the activity into a clean Activities.ini that I included from the index.

It might be that the game messes up property relations if there's other stuff.

Interesting. Because of what you said I made a separate .ini file to put my activities in and now it works.
Putting them directly into the index.ini doesn't make them appear.

I still don't get it but the problem is solved.

I think for whatever reason Activities, despite being generic .ini code, have to be a in a seperate Activities.ini file.

Maybe, but I got my activities to load from a file called Wubwub.ini

Which is a separate .ini file. The filename should not matter. ;)
I threw my junk inside index.ini and that's definitely a no-go.

Oh, I didn't properly thank you. Thanks for thinking with me, findude. :grin:

Actually, a Index.ini with nothing but DataModule and the activity definition WILL work.

Go figure.

IncludeFile'd content before defining. Did not test defining the activities first.
