That newscript will sort that out, I couldn't think of another way to do this, but luckily there is the "run_script" command built into the console, phew!

Thanks for pointing this out, I didn't think of this!

I have added a removal script and instructions how to do this in the description for changelog v1.1.

Sorry for the initial crash!

I might be totally wrong about this: I think the basement in Rostok (where the leader dudes hang out) might be one of these unsafe areas from blowouts/storms. I remember just dropping dead in there once during a blowout, I think near some bunkbeds?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

Tweaki_Breeki

Nice find, I will take a look and see what is going on down there, cheers!

Edit: Really good find Elkinda, the area was indeed broken. If you were too close to the east wall you were dead.

I've added a set of coordinates for this area :)

Thanks for making this, I always thought it was necesary but couldn't figure out how to make it myself, this is a great aportation.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

Cheers! I initially started out by adding tiny, unnoticeable objects to the game and using a radius. So if you were close enough to the object you would be safe, but it would be a circle around the object, and buildings are cuboid.

Next up is working out how to do weird shapes!

great mod from the sound of it, thanks!

A suggestion for another one, or expansion of this one, would be to make the sleeping process a little less rigid and restrictive than in vanilla game where you can't sleep almost nowhere, even in common sense places, and a little more restrictive than some mods that just unlock the sleeping bag usage anywhere allowing sleeping in the open through a blowout, scot-free.

So:

1. Perhaps allowing to sleeping bag sleep in spots that ARE safe from blowouts (pretty much most of the spaces you have added, I'd imagine).

2. Alternatively allowing to use sleeping bag for sleep anywhere, BUT killing the player if there was an actual blowout during his sleep.

3. As above but waking him up to a blowout alarm if one is about to start.

4. as 1 and 2 but also representing the risk of sleeping in such spots by some chance spawn occurrence of an enemy patrol in vicinity on waking up.

This is all excellent, I agree the sleeping mechanic is a bit odd sometimes.

I've had a go at editing the files to also stop the screen fading to black when placing the sleeping bag, I need to release this tweak as well really.

Not yet tested the sleeping bag in these calculated safety zones, I'll have a look to see what the sleeping bag requires for a "yes, you can sleep here".

It was a bit unfair in Dead City playing as an enemy of the Mercenaries.

The only places were their HQ building, their other building south of the HQ or the southeastern building (I forget the name) but it is mostly covered with a Psy-field!

No longer! :)

Oh bugger! Thanks so much for posting this... on it now!

I've reuploaded v1.3 for the time being, it will be safe to downgrade from v1.4.

I should spend more time testing!

Sorry for the crash!

I loaded up my save and teleported to The Farm in Cordon, spawned in lots of bandits and stalkers, and it did crash!

It was because when they open the doors on The Farm buildings, the function to check NPCs and players using physics objects is sometimes buggy and returns rubbish data.

I have made a change to my script and tested again with another war at The Farm, and it didn't crash... fingers crossed this has solved the problem!

Hi! I've just tested this now and the symbols are working for me, both on the PDA and on the mini-map.

Please can you save the game and load again to see if this fixes the problem? Thanks!

i have install 2 Days ago your Mod and Moddb.com this one for minimap to see all better and Moddb.com this as Hud at the same Time from there i have play now 2 days.But i don't get any more the Save Zone symbol even after a new start/reload.So real im not sure if this Mod have a conflict with one of the 2 Mods or 1 of the 2 Mods make such a change or the Problem come from your Mod :). I get all the Message and Quest text go to a save place and when im there now stay sheltered and so on but no symbol on Minimap or PDA for save place.

That is very strange. I just installed both 'SquareDOV' and 'SidHUD' and tested with my addon on my own saved game.

The symbols are working for me, on the square mini-map and on the PDA map.

I'm very sorry, I don't know why the icons/symbols are not appearing on your maps. Maybe another addon you have installed is conflicting? :(

Glad to be a lifesaver :)

No addon conflicts to my knowledge so far.

I'm not sure what the outcome was of GladiusVictorius' issue a bit further up the comments.

The only thing I can think of is if they use an addon that changes the 'map_spots.xml' (this addon uses the "secondary_task_location" map spot icon) or the 'ui_actor_hint_wnd.dds' image (which stores all the different map icons), but they haven't posted anything further.

Keep adding more locations! This is something that's been needed for a long time. I miss the days of being able to hide in the concrete pipes and many other places to stay alive. Also might try to find ways to make tuck cemetery less of a death trap?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

I agree! Although, I am leaning towards places that could properly shielded from the blast. A pipe, having two open ends, might not be the best place. Unless it was facing directly East-West as I think the blast always comes from the North, I think?
