Mods enabled and working, but unable to configure overrides


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I have a dedicated server running with caves and mods installed.  All installed mods download and load each time no problem.  I have a modoverrides.lua that successfully activates all the mods, but my configuration option overrides don't work at all.  My log doesn't mention any overrides for the mods, just loads default settings.  I have attached my dedicated_server_mods_setup.lua and my modoverrides.lua and a log of the successful mod load without any overrides options.  What am I doing wrong? My guess is a simple syntax error, but I have been comparing side by side with This image I found on these forums through a google search and the responses on a related post which had an example modoverrides.lua file.

How do you know you are getting the default configurations?

So... yeah. However, there are mistakes.

Such as,

		BeefaloWool = 0,
		CatTails = 1,

which should be

		["Beefalo Wool"] = 0,
		["Cat Tails"] = 1,

and also

workit = nope,

which should be

workit = "nope",

ah yes, i had the beefalo wool and cat tails like how you wrote it before, but i've been playing around testing different variations because it's not working... however, thank you very much for noticing that and also my typo on the DST cellar config option! also, I have another question: when I enter eightxten = 8x10, as one of the config options for the DST cellar, modoverrides.lua fails to load (syntax error in that line) and also, in notepad)++, the "8" part of "8x10" is highlighted orange like all other values for config options but the "x10" part is black like the rest of the text (like the color of the text in the word "workit".  just out of curiosity, because that isn't really an issue for me just noticed that happening.

	{
		name = "eightxten",
		label = "Slot Positions",
        hover = "Here's where you to change the positions of the slots",
		options =
	{
		{description = "5 x 16", data = "5x16", hover = "5 slots hight and 16 slots wide"},
		{description = "8 x 10", data = "8x10", hover = "8 slots high and 10 slots wide"},
	},
		default = "5x16",
	},

You pass the data you want.

guess that implies that i'm using a string instead of numerical value?

That would be as

eightxten = 8*10,

The operator is an asterisk, not the letter x.

thank you... i was wondering how i was supposed to accomodate a space in there... i was wondering why the mod developer didn't just use an underscore hehe but i realize my mistake now thank you for pointing this out to me!

		["Beefalo Wool"] = 0,
		["Cat Tails"] = 1,

hey I used your suggestion and went with

		["Beefalo Wool"] = 0,
		["Cat Tails"] = 1,

and the mod still loaded up fine but without changing the cat tails options, like always :(.  Also, while perusing the log, I noticed

[00:00:06]: workshop-447911453 (Craftable Hollow Stump)    GetModConfigData    Cat Tails

[00:00:06]: Warning: Calling Recipe from a mod is now deprecated. Please call AddRecipe from your modmain.lua file.

could that be the issue? the mod recipe should have used underscores (Cat_Tails)? because my mod configuration overrides that have very similar formats but use underscores as spaces between words; those all seem to load great :)

here is my new modoverrides.lua.  It successfully overrides both the 8x10 option and the "nope" option in the DST cellar, so no longer any issues there.  However, I still cannot get the cat tails override to register for the hollow stump crafting mod :/

[00:00:06]: applying configuration_options from modoverrides.lua to mod workshop-417346599

 

so it seems to just skip over the beefalo wool and the Cat Tails and it repeats that about 15 times while sporadically activating overrides for other mods as well.  When I go into the game, the recipe is still lacking cat tails and beefalo wool, but I can successfully change those other 4 (logs, rope, fish, grass)
