Replacing files in mpchristmas2 as told but changes don't show up in game, also how can I change snowball damage to that of a knife stab
Trying to replace the snowball model and in my mods folder it is in the right place but in game it still shows up as the regular snowball. Is there a second location of the snowball location and damage files? Also how do I change the snowball damage to that of a knife stab or something similar to that
Snowball Model/Texture Location:
Tip: In OpenIV 'Ctrl+F3' can be used to search for things by name. Search for 'w_ex_snowball.ydr' and 'w_ex_snowball_hi.ydr' & replace the ones you find in the highest patchday##ng folder structure as that will be the ones loaded by the game
I take it you just want increased damage/one hit kill for whatever projectile you are replacing the snowball with?
If you go to this file:
Open it & find this:
<Item type="CAmmoThrownInfo"> <Name>AMMO_SNOWBALL</Name>
& then (about 11 lines below that) edit & increase this damage line:
<Damage value="25.000000" />
to increase the damage of the snowball projectile. Values of ~100+ should be 1 hit kill (with vanilla ped health values).
Note: There are 2x '<Damage value' lines in 'weaponsnowball.meta'. In your case you just need to edit the one for the ammo, not the weapon.
Hope it helps Give us a shout if you have any trouble anywhere
@a63nt-5m1th That worked perfect thank you! Two more questions for things that are mostly related, is there any way to get melee enemies to not run away when you point a gun at them (t can be done with map editor somehow with the nightstick cops here (https://www.gta5-mods.com/maps/kill-the-president-speech)
Also is it possible to get a npc to throw a snowball at you using map editor? When I give peds snowballs and set them to the angry function they just panic and run away (even if i don't hold a gun)
Thanks sorry if i'm asking too many questions
No probs , unfortunately I don't know much about Map Editor or stopping peds running away . You'll have to create a new thread & ask the community or contact mod authors (anyone who makes a trainer would be a good place to start for help on the ped issue as most trainers have settings that alter ped behaviour).
Best of luck
