Hi there, as title, I got some problem when running BuildResources.bat.
The error message is "Couldn't find source fbx file".
Here is the part of one:

Compiling 'Models\Buildings\IronMine\IronMineBuild01Picking.rsc:resource'
Couldn't find source fbx file 'Models\Buildings\IronMine\IronMine.fbx'
Resource 'D:\game\b\BanishedKit\resource\Models\Buildings\IronMine\IronMineBuild01Picking.rsc' can't be built because its source resources are missing, trying to load from pack...

I confused about .fbx file. I know that is a 3d object file. Are they in data0.pkg, data1.pkg, patch0.pkg or patch1.pkg?
If not, where can I find them ?
TKS ;)

Did it compile?

You often get those messages and the compiler looks for the missing files
in data0.pkg data1.pkg...
If it finds them they will be included. Then you shouldn't bother about
the error message.

The resource files are not available. We have to build our own models.
No fbx's and no textures, just the example files.

What were you trying to do?

edit - Oh, you were running the Buildresources.bat (stupid me - learn how to read! )
Then it is probably something with your paths.
You install to directory 'BanishedKit' and it should work. No spaces or extra symbols.

Did you copy data0.pkg, data1.pkg, patch0.pkg and patch1.pkg to your working directory?
(Mine is 'D:\BanishedKit\bin\WinData')

Did you edit anything before you run the bat-file?

any of the 3d fbx files , nor any of the 2d png files has been provided for the extraction of the data files to prevent any stealing of his graphic works/animations.

when you do buildresource to extract all .rsc files... you just ignore all these "cant find" they arent necessary to the processus anyways.


then after , if you try to make a mod that change or recompile with changes some of the original building, you need to not include in your mod folder any of these build01picking.rsc or mesh and dont go further than the template. in the template it is mentionned build01picking.... if he doesnt find it in your mod folder, he knows where to find it in the data.pkgs files but if you put those in your mod folder, it will search to process it (it will end up to see those links: mine.fbx...) and then will search for it. or you provide a new .fbx or it wont find it in the data.pkgs. so take out any of the picking/mesh.rsc of your mod folder unless you provide your own 3D graphic.fbx

i hope it makes sense for you

I took the time to compile my resources.
Yes I got an error (real error) too.
This time it was the files for pepper that was missing.

I didn't know there was an error since I didn't compile resources earlier.
They are not needed for modding.
You can safely delete all in windata except data0.pkg, data1.pkg, patch0.pkg and patch1.pkg
and be able to make and compile mods.

read this thread - http://worldofbanished.com/index.php?topic=1276.0
if you want tips on starting to make small adjustments.
There is a LOT of information hiding in the forums. Or ask. It works too. :)

edit - No we can't extract fbx's from pkm

Happy New Year!

But I don't know how to get start , is there any tip or manual to teach me to do that?

when you compile your resources and prepare your modkit ..... yes if you pause it during the process you will see some "cant find this fbx, or cant find that .png" it is normal.
the developper made that to protect his graphic files and his graphic works.
but everything should be fine and the modkit process and modkit building should be fine and not stop till it is done.

the process should not halt due serious error and crash. if it does, make sure you use the good number of version toolkit (.zip) and the good number of game version (data.pkgs)
not use any strange caracters and no spaces, and dont put in program files folders, start at root of one of your drive. and follow the instructions. make sure you install the direct x libraries and visual c libraries and reboot.

now if the toolkit installations has been completed with success (out of the minor fact that all graphic files has been hidden) ....

and you have problem to make a mod and compile it .... then the errors are made there. look around there are some thread that explain how to make a simple mod.

can you explain exactly what you try to do as mod ?

Quote
What were you trying to do?
>>I just want to change some value from the existed object.
EX: make Firewood value 4->2


In your BanishedKit folder, you will make a folder named "Firewood2"

inside that firewood2 folder, you should have these :

Package.rsc with:
Code: [Select]
PackageFile Firewood2
{
String _name = "Firewood value Change";
String _author = "Skywillnosky";
String _description = "This mod change the value of firewood from 4 to 2.";
String _icon = "icon.png";
String _preview = "preview.jpg";
int _userVersion = 1;

// all files in resource directory
String _includeList
[
"*"
]

// exclude package files, mod files, file used for building packages
String _excludeList
[
"Package_*.crs"
"*.pkg"
"*.pkm"
]
}

Icon.png ( which is a 48x48 graphic file you made with a graphic program and which the meaning of this icon goes with what you mod should do)


Firewood2Resources.rsc with this inside:
Code: [Select]
ExternalList resource
{
External _resources
[
// toolbar - references building and everything else - nothing else need be listed here
"/Template/RawMaterialFirewood.rsc"
]
}

then you create a folder in that folder named "Template"
then in that Template folder you will put a Copy/Paste of the original RawMaterialFirewood.rsc which you will find in BanishedKit/Resource/Template folder

then you will go edit that copied pasted RawMaterialFirewood.rsc and you will check the "value" paragraph and change the number "4" for a "2" like this:
Code: [Select]
int _baseValue = 2;

Then after that just need to create your .bat file.
you comeback in your BanishedKit folder and you will create a "buildFirewood2.bat" file that you will modify and put this inside :
Code: [Select]
bin\x64\Tools-x64.exe /build Firewood2Resources.rsc /pathres ../Firewood2 /pathdat ../Firewood2/bin
bin\x64\Tools-x64.exe /mod Package.rsc:Firewood2 /pathres ../Firewood2 /pathdat ../Firewood2/bin

it should compile and you should not have anything else in your Firewood2 folder (no UI folder, no Models folder... nothing else. here in this mod , you dont need anything else)

after you successfully compiled it , in your Firewood2 folder should see a /bin/ folders appeared (and sometime a /Build/ folder) : thats normal, dont touch those. thats your toolkit that built those.


You will comeback to your /BanishedKit/ folder and you will see at top a "/bin/" folder and you will go there , and inside you will see a "WinData" folder , go inside that folder.

Thats where your created mod will always end up. check the list and you should see a "Firewood2.pkm" file <= thats your mod !!!

if you want to play that mod, go place it in your Banished Game mod folder : if you use steam, your mod folder should be located :
SteamApps/common/Banished/WinData folder (not sure where if you have a StandAlone Banished game.

launch the game, enable your mod, quit and save. and relaunch the game and start a new city. if you want to enable it in a pre existent save, you will go to return in your mod window and re"enable" it for that speciific save.

That's great!! RedKetchup.
But in Firewood2Resources.rsc, I tried "Template/RawMaterialFirewood.rsc:value"  instead of "/Template/RawMaterialFirewood.rsc".
(references:http://worldofbanished.com/index.php?topic=1276.0 provided by kid1293)
It also worked!!O_O

If you write

"Template/RawMaterialFirewood.rsc:value"  instead of "/Template/RawMaterialFirewood.rsc".

the compiler will ONLY compile the 'value' paragraph not all the file.
Since you only changed 'value' it's OK.

Good habit to name the paragraph(s) you use.
If someone else changes something ( weight ? )
there is no collision if both stick to that rule.
Else the first one loaded will be used.
