Zipping a Geo Mod

Post by jah6575 » Fri Jun 15, 2018 4:58 pm

Hey guys and gals,
I have been working on finalizing my Geo Mod for Seasons and have been having an issue. I created everything using one of the Realismus Modding Geos as a template, changed the information and tested it.

During the testing process I had multiplayer set to true in the modDesc file and was getting a warning, which from what I understand is correct. I am now trying to zip the file. I have tried with both WinZip and 7Zip and the warning has gone away.

However, now that it is zipped, when I start a game with my geo active it seems to be defaulting to the base geo for Seasons. While doing this I have only the zipped version of my mod and seasons in my mods folder.

Here is a copy of the log:

Since there is no obvious error visible in the log.txt and I'm not familiar with the development of Seasons Geo mods I won't be able to help here.

I would therefore suggest to reach out directly to the Seasons developers via one of the channels mentioned on their homepage: https://www.realismusmodding.com/mods/seasons/

Ok. I have reached out to them on slack and they are trying to help. I appreciate all the help you have provided me so far with this. I figured a geo would be pretty simple and I have been working on it for 6 months and still haven’t even gotten it submitted for release.

Realismusmodding are a very accessible team and they are quite easy to talk to.
With Slack, it's easy to contact them.
