Trouble with new nation edit

Recommended Posts

I have created a new nation using CIS  as the template. Ive replaced CIS for my choosen nation name along with declaring its city, region, national stadium and currency but the box for continent is grey and im not able to select a continent, why wont it let me select a continent. Ive changed everything like people clubs cities to the chosen name of my nation but im at a loss what to do. To get this edit up and running should i be able to add a continent to my nation? How do i add a continent to the greyed out box??? Please help.

also when I'm on the page which ive uploaded below I cant seem to add a continent why is this??? I'm quite confused about what I'm doing wrong and any info ive collected on building a nation doesn't seem to cover this problem however the info ive been using is from past fm games, any help would be awesome.

Im not an expert but I see in your second screenshot that the ""continent"" is still grey! I think you must activate that and set it up

Yes I know how to do that:-)

 

you need to go to editor/data/format/database/nation.xml

find this:


<!-- Continent -->
<record>
<flags id="field" value="Ncti"/>
<string id="name" value="Continent"/>
<flags id="type" value="database_record_unique_id"/>
<flags id="database_table_type" value="continent"/>
<boolean id="is_client_field" value="true"/>
<boolean id="is_read_only" value="true"/>


and change

<boolean id="is_read_only" value="true"/>
u
<boolean id="is_read_only" value="false"/>

save file and reload editor

It's inside your editor folder in the steam directory. You could also just search on your computer for nation.xml

^This very much.

I wouldn't even want to know how many hours I spent trying to figure it out whilst using the advanced editor back in 2010(or was it '09? I forgot), and this was while in conversation with 3 or 4 other people with whom we were all bouncing ideas back and forth between, and even then we still can't figure some things out. I know I certainly wouldn't've come this far without asking someone else when stuck. While there's still no manual, there's more than enough of us here who've used the editor for long enough that we can accomplish most things and can guide those who need it through if asked.

I right clicked before opening and used notepad as advised so I could save, the screenshot ive uploaded is slightly different from the screenshot further up this conversation so I thought I would ask where abouts on the uploaded screenshot should I write false???

I'm finding this rather hard lol but I wona crack this stupid problem so I can create my own nations and further my enjoyment, creating a player club or league system is much easier then this process so far I need to know this now so I cant give in lol.

This is always the first hurdle for anyone editing extinct nations.

 

it is as simple as  changing a word from false to true on the correct line of the correct file using notepad.

the issue is always helping someone find it.

you are not the first an and you wont  be the last.

It's the same every year and has been for as long as I can remember...
