New to modding need help

Recommended Posts

So, im quite new to modding and i have this idea i want to make a reality.
I want to make a character this a custom HUD, like a button in the top right (What that button is for another post)

But i only want that button to show up if you're playing my custom character.
How would I go about doing that?

local ImageButton = require "widgets/imagebutton"local function add_button(inst)	local controls = inst.HUD.controls	local function button_pressed()	-- Do stuff	end	local your_button = controls.sidepanel:AddChild(ImageButton(UI_ATLAS, "button.tex", "button_over.tex", "button_disabled.tex"))	your_button:SetScale(1, 1, 1)	your_button:SetPosition(0, 0, 0)	your_button:SetOnClick(button_pressed)	your_button:Show()	your_button:SetText("Button label")	your_button:Enable()	controls.sidepanel:AddChild(your_button)endlocal function sim_postinit(inst)	if (inst.prefab == "your_character_prefab") then		add_button(inst)	endendAddSimPostInit(sim_postinit)

If you've downloaded them from the workshop you should just be able to go in to mods from the main menu and click on the mods you want to enable/disable and then click "apply"

 

If you've downloaded the mod in some other way, you need to navigate to the don't starve mods folder.
To do that you right click on Don't starve in steam and click "properties" 

Then click on "local files"

And then click on "browse local content"

This will bring you to the Don't starve system folder.

From there you want drag and drop your mod in to the mods folder.

After that you just launch the game and do the same thing you'd do when you have downloaded something from the workshop.

Waya the Revenant/modmain.lua:49: attempt to index global 'your_button' (a nil value)

 

I recommend you read more on lua scopes and local variables.

You can't use the your_button variable from inside the button_pressed function as it hasn't been declared where the function can access it.

Remove the "local" modifier from the your_button variable, then declare the variable before the button_pressed function.

local your_button-- ...-- button_pressed function here-- can access your_button
