Drop-in wallset not showing up
« on: October 14, 2015, 07:41:13 PM »
So this might be a really amateur question (it's nearly three in the morning here, so I'm quite slow in the head), but I somehow cannot manage a wallset to show up properly.

I've made a tlb for CORAL B with the fantastic Toolbox, dropped it in the .dsn directory, and selected it for the map. It showed up nicely there, but in the wall select menu and on the map the original coral walls are showing up. Any ideas why?

Yes.  Drop in walls have three different set numbers that can be used.  You probably used the first.  Try putting that wall set in the first slot (or the third).  Your walls should show up then.

I'll let someone else give you the specifics on how it works, as it's pretty late here too.

In your second screen shot, you can see that you have three wall sets to use for each level of your design. When you import a wall set using Toolbox, you can choose to replace Coral Set #1, Coral Set #2, or Coral Set #3. If you replace Coral Set #2, then you can use your Coral replacement in the second wall slot set for that level.

This sticky explains the process much better than I can:

Now I understand, thanks!

Good news, this means three times as much wallsets for me to use.

The only problem, which sometimes takes some foresight to avoid, is if, say, I wanted to use several different wallsets in one dungeon, but had put a couple or even all of them in the first wallslot of three different wallsets, I wouldn't be able to combine them.  To use all 3, I would have to have one in the first slot of its wallset, one in the second of its wallset, and one in the third slot of its wallset.
