Yeah, so basically ever since I started using skins and npcs and vehicles and whatnot, I've been having problems with NPCs. I understand there are limitation, and had come to the realization that I was over the NPC limit. It didn't bother me until now, suddenly, NPCs are vanishing from the list, giving a "Unable to spawn" error, but hitching the game as if they were being spawned.

I run JA+ mod all the time on my private server. I read that copying the ext_data folder from assets1.pk3 to the mod folder will help me to spawn them. I did that. Next time I tried to spawn, I couldn't spawn an NPC I had downloaded that I spawned nearly everytime I played. "Strange." I thought to myself. "I wonder if that means..." So with that, I spawned a Stormtrooper, which normally would give me the unable to spawn message. BANG. There's a Stormtrooper. Impressed, I decided to try a wampa, since that wouldn't spawn either. Bang. Wampa. I decide to reload the map with cheats on, so I could notarget, and it defaults back to Stormie and wampa NOT SPAWNING. Yet, the one that couldn't spawn before (the one I had downloaded) worked. Frustrating enough as this is, I tried to spawn at atst, and that wouldn't spawn either. "Unable to spawn vehicle atst_vehicle."

I've gone through and deleted the NPC files out of COUNTLESS pk3s, but it doesn't allow me to spawn ANYTHING I couldn't before. And the problem is, it just keeps getting worse! How can this keep getting worse if I'm not downloading anything? Is there ANYTHING I can do to fix this, without wiping everything or reinstalling the game over again? It seems strange it'd work sometimes, and not others. ANY help at all would be really appreciated. I get so sick of the error messages, and I can't even play SP because nothing under "S" will spawn.

When using The Nerfbat 2.3, you'll also have to copy the additional NPC's pk3s into the mod folder.

Of course, then you run the risk of going over the limit again.... :lookaround:


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

-_-

JA+ = Nerfbat.

Why? Because it is.
