Enabling editor expansions

Postby KGold » Sat Jan 15, 2022 12:14 pm

This has probably been asked countless times, but since I couldn't find a proper answer on the forums, I'll ask here again. Let's settle this once and for all :)

So, here goes:
How do I get an expansion made in the editor to work in-game?
I have a map with entry from Matras, but it doesn't appear in Captain Verra's destination list.

The most frustrating thing about this is that I could do this some years ago, but I completely forgot.

Any help is appreciated! :D

Why don’t you load in the Eyeland file and check for the script? You had the solution when we were developing that expansion.

It doesn't have anything to do with scripts. All I can recall is that you have to export the file, but I've no idea what's next :D

It's in the tutorial, under "Testing". ;)

To test your world, first select "File/Export for PC/mac". This will create a ".pak" file usable by the game. By default, the editor will export the file into the appropriate folder. (It's "Documents/The Quest/expansions". If you've exported the world somewhere else, copy the exported file into this folder.) To actually test the world, exit the editor and start the game.
