Ok, I'm playing through SP (yet again) and whenever I get to a cutscene involving Tavion she's not in it and I get an error message saying she can't be spawned. In-game when I try to spawn her as an NPC I get the same error message. I haven't altered her npc file at all, so I'm wondering what could be causing this error. Does anyone have an idea why?

its something in your base folder thats conflicting with it. only way to find out what is to run a clean base and maybe a few mods but only ones that youll be using in SP, but they could be the problem.

What lines of code would cause such a conflict? If I know what lines of code cause the conflict then I know what I'm looking to fix at least.

You probably have too many NPCs installed. They come with skins/models. Move out of your Base folder some of the skins/models you added yourself (if you added any, ofcourse) and see if that helps. If you wish to keep your skins/models, you can open their .pk3 files with Packscape or extract it's content with WinZip, WinRAR or 7-Zip. Then, look for ext_data/npcs folder and simply delete .npc files from there. Once you're done, pack up remaining files/folders into a .pk3 file again and put it back to your Base folder. Your skins/models will work normally.

Thanks for that, you were right. I only recently learned there was a saber limit so makes sense there's an npc limit too.

You can fix this problem without trawling through your base by using this mod I made!

In Q3, there's a limit for everything. Some limits are just higher than others. Many of them are there for a reason...but they can still get very annoying.

There's even a limit on how many limits the engine is allowed to have.

Yeah. Try figuring that one out.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

"Yo dawg, I heard you like Quake, so we put a limit on your limits so you can get annoyed while you get annoyed!"

Hope I don't get in trouble for that... :lol:
