What am I doing wrong with these jobs that I tested


#1

These are making the game not work - Help :cry:

You need to make some entries in [color=red]strings.ini for :
exp_biskills
xp_tech
exp_itskills
ip [ ?? should this have been iq ? ]
xp_business
Precede all with nv_ and give a brief but useful description.
As you look at them you’ll know what I mean.

sobriety has a preceding underscore … _sobriety.

I don’t know what the [color=blue]5.2,-1 is for !

In your lines you’re missing some tokens.

#,mindy_ceo,Cheif Executive Officer,CEO,CEO,Floston Advertising,office,science,115000,150000,N/A,0,0.21,0.47,N/A,#,confidence,iq,sobriety,#,"exp_biskills,1.0","xp_tech,1.0","exp_itskills,1.0","ip,0.65","culture,0.60","xp_business,0.75",#,"tiredness,0.24,_TIRED_DEGRADE",stress,0.48,_STRESS_DEGRADE",
#,mindy_perasst,Personal Assistant,PA,PA,Floston Advertising,office,science,75000,115000,N/A,0,0.55,0.50,N/A,#,confidence,happiness,iq,#,"basic_itskills,0.41",peopleskills,0.17",#,"tiredness,0.35,_TIRED_DEGRADE","stress,0.15,_STRESS_DEGRADE","xp_business,0.05,0.11","peopleskills,0.02,0.08",

Try those. I might have missed a token out myself [ !! ]. Someone that knows what’s what will probably put it right.

[edit] Why didn’t this post use word-wrap ???


#3

Thanks for your help - I really do suck at this kind of stuff


#4

Nope - still didn’t work
I would really like an Admin, help help please


#5

I’m not an admin, but I think I’m pretty good with this stuff already. I mean I am a programmer in RL. LoL I have to agree with Rocky here. You’ve got a mess there. Why are you trying to do it this way in the first place? Why not make a txt file and put it in the mods folder? It would be a lot easier than trying to edit the CSV file. They can be quite a pain. Anyway, if I deciphered everything you had down there properly… This is how it’s going to be in the jobs.csv file.

The problem with doing it in the jobs.csv file is there is no place to specify a distance or a duration. It assumes it’s forever, till you get fired and or promoted, and it randomly picks a distance for you.

That’s what the [color=blue]5.2,-1 was rocky. 5.2 miles comute distance and indefinite duration. :wink:

You’ll still need to add to add quite a few lines to a number of files to get this to work. I seem to recall someone else making some jobs like this before. So, just to be sure it all works, just add the stuff below to the correct files and it should fix the problem your having in your other post as well. :wink:

Add the following lines go in the skills section (near the rest of the “nv” strings) of the strings.ini file.

Hope that helps! You really should have all this in the modding forum though. You’re going to scare off poor innocent players. LoL!!

Thx for that info … I couldn’t see it at the time … wood n trees !!
I wondered how the miles and job stuff got into the game without being witten especilly :blush: :exclamation:

Apart from putting brain in gear in thinking up file names, I find it easier to put new jobs in the mods folder anyway.


#7
nv_phpprogramming = "PHP Programming" 

Are you gonna make a class so that I can learn about Classes ?? 8) :astonished: :open_mouth:
