creative mode, villager names, configurable balancing and more. Read the ingame message for more details.

Config editor at Foundation\mods\500. the editor will NOT work if you move it, I recommend making a shortcut.


FAQ:

Q: The mods balancing option doesn't show when starting a new game./config directory is not created./config editor gives a "directory not found"-error.

A: Use the ingame interface to install the mod! If you do have to install manually make sure you unpack the zip in "Foundation\mods\500" (create the 500 folder yourself). Run the mod at least once before using the editor.

getting this error whilst trying to use the editor Prntscr.com also impossible to close that window had to reboot pc to get rid of it

seems it can't find the config files, make sure you run the mod at least once first. if you did that already... could it be you moved them? or don't have them at /documents/polymorph games\foundation\mods for another reason?

and thanks for mentioning you couldn't get rid of the window, i'll try to handle the error better in a future version so the window can be closed more easily

i checked Prntscr.com i was using the right place all along

mods\500 is the mods directory. the config directory should be, mods\Fiery Essential. using the config editor from \500 is fine, but the config files directory should be at \Fiery Essential. the main reason for that choice is so the config files aren't deleted whenever the mod is updated.

Imgur.com this is what the folder structure should look like,

here's the thing though the "directory not found" error is pretty specific so i would be surprised if the config directory (and its subdirectories) did exist. assuming they don't, you did run the mod before and did not manually move the Fiery Essential folder, can you get me \Polymorph Games\Foundation\Foundation.log ? because the mod is what should be creating those folders and files, so if there's a problem with it, that log is where i can learn more

@fireofhades ... did you figure out what was causing this? I am getting the same thing. It didn't install in the right location (just in downloads), but I have put it in both 500 and the general mods folder, but it doesn't create its own folder, just the files. Not sure how to run the mod if it won't run (per your instructions earlier)

firesofhades
firesofhades @firesofhades

this was caused because the mod couldn't find one of its files (json library, not one of the config files), either because von messed with them or something else went wrong.
i haven't heard back from von though.

i'm not sure what you mean by installing it in downloads tbh.
in any case, having the foundation.log file would be useful.
if you are installing manually, make sure its documents\polymorph games\foundation\mods and not the install dir

3.1.2 should now also work from the install dir's mods folder

I've checked but there is no log. Even your latest version doesn't show for me. I did get a flag from Malwarebytes (it's paranoidish and generates a lot of false positives,) so that may be it. It's okay. I was using the game as a kind of map for something else, rather than playing it per se, so your mod really rocked it for me. Thanks so much for your quick responses. :)

firesofhades @firesofhades

Imgur.com it kinda should be there, depending on your settings it could be called just "foundation" though, without the log.

if 2.0.0 did work for you, you still have the option to manually install it, you won't be missing much when it comes to the creative thing. just remove everything in mods\500 and unpack the zip there.

about mbam... i think it might not like the fact that there is an executable in the zip

This worked. Thanks so much <3

happy to hear :D
and thanks for mentioning the mbam thing ;)

I was loving this mod until the update. Now it installs, but it doesn't show up as accessible to load when starting a new game. Is there some kind of work around, or does it need updating? Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I've verified game files, uninstalled and reinstalled, etc. I appreciate any help solving this problem. Thanks :)

firesofhades
firesofhades @firesofhades

i actually ran into it myself too, but assumed it happened because i'm still messing with it, thanks for letting me know. i will investigate.

Just tried the 3.0.1 update and the same thing happened. Will check back later. Thanks again.

dsytlists
dsytlists @dsytlists

Thanks so much. It's a great mod :)

firesofhades
firesofhades @firesofhades

could i ask for some more details? by "not accessible to load when starting a new game", do you mean it doesn't show up in the balancing settings or that the checkbox in the mod interface is grayed out? if the chekbox is greyed out, does it say the mod is named "fiery essential" or "fiery essential V3.0.X ?

dsytlists
dsytlists @dsytlists

It doesn't show up at all. It's not even on the list to select instead of default. It shows up on the mod list and allows me to install it, but then it's not there for a new game.

firesofhades
firesofhades @firesofhades

so in the mod list it does show as active (ticked on) ("fiery essential" is the config folder which should be grey checkbox)
it does happen to me with 3.0.0, but not with 3.0.1
if 3.0.1 doesn't work for you, you might need to remove the config files at \documents\Polymorph Games\Foundation\mods\Fiery Essential

dsytlists
dsytlists @dsytlists

So delete the config files and install 3.0.1 ? (Sorry, only saw the last part of this message after I scrolled all the way down.)

dsytlists
dsytlists @dsytlists

Yes, it's installed and active. Where it doesn't show is when I go to start a new game and I want to select it rather than default. It's as though it's not installed at all. Thank you so much for your help :)

firesofhades
firesofhades @firesofhades

i edited that msg, so maybe thats why you didn't see it. i can't really reproduce the issue here (3.0.0 seems to doing fine too now)

you are saying that after removing the config directory the problem isn't solved?

dsytlists
dsytlists @dsytlists

Yes, it still won't show for me, even with your latest update. I'm not sure why 3.0.0 worked for me and none of the others do. Could it be a setting on my end?

since, it is working here i'm kinda at a loss, if you could send me the foundation.log files at Documents\Polymorph Games\Foundation i can take a look at that though, you can upload it and send me a link, or send me the file in a dm on discord (if you are on the foundation discord), whichever works best for you
