Simple Visitor Lodge

Unread postby Berserk » Sat, 30th Jan 2010 2:52

A rather simple semi-new building inspired by the building expansion packs damaged site B hut.
After downloading the BEP and not really liking the majority of it, I decided to scavenge out the statue and cemetary wall and get rid of the rest. However it did give me an idea, since people seem to want a hotel for visitors why not a lodge/ hut/ bungalo type housing instead? I mean, when I go to the beach I'd rather stay at a beach house than a hotel. So I cloned the rest area and replaced the model with the standard kiosk, from there made little culdesacs (sp) of housing for visitors to stay and rest.

Though mostly for looks I made it cheaper than rest areas, but only four visitors can lodge at a time. It's also available from the start if you wanna wait on researching the rest area.

1.) Back up your files, that's obvious.
2.) Copy the rest area note pad and inx files, rename them to Lodge. (Universal Interactive>Blue Tongue>JPOG>Data>Units
3.) Open the notepad and change the corrisponding text to this...
Name=lodge;
Directory=AUnitLodge;
TClass=AUnitPicnicArea;
ScreenName=$Unit_lodge;
Help=$UnitHelp_AUnitPicnicArea;
GUIDialog=AUnitPicnicAreaDialog;
BuildMenuPath="Structure/Services";
FootprintX= 2 ;
FootprintY= 2 ;
UseINX= 1 ;

Health=1000.0;
BuildCost=5000.0;
CenterHeight=4.0;
SelectionBoxRadius=10.0

Animations {
Model=kiosk;
}

4.) Open the INX file and change MaxCapacity = 8 to MaxCapacity = 4
change 3x3 footprint to 2x2 footprint, and do it again further down.
change PosY=3; to PosY=2;
change NumPaths=3; to NumPaths=2;

5.) Open GUI>BldMenu and find your amenities and add unit = lodge; beneath the toilet so it looks like this.

unit = welccntr;
unit = shop;
unit = kiosk;
unit = picnic;
unit = toilet;
unit = lodge;

6.) Open the locales folder also in the GUI and open your Eng notepad and scroll down to the units. I put it under the Unit_kiosk and labeled it as Unit_lodge "Visitor Lodge"; it should look like this:

Unit_foodsrc "FoodSource";
Unit_huntplat "Hunting Platform";
Unit_kiosk "Kiosk";
Unit_lodge "Visitor Lodge";
Unit_maintdep "Cleaner Station";
Unit_petzoo "Petting Zoo";
Unit_road "Path";

You should now be able to build little community rest areas, if you like it then enjoy.

Known Glitches/ none that I've come across.

Why cant you edit the second one? They where the same, so it doesn't matter and I edited them so why are you complaining.


And every one I cant copy the picnic file and change everything for a half new building so I just changed the picnic file animation to WelcCntr (Welcome Center) and it looks Cool.
