New Avlis Haks Release November 2021 (Now live)

Post by Hamlet » Mon Oct 25, 2021 11:52 pm

All,

Please visit the Avlis Wiki, download the following haks & extract in your Neverwinter Nights/haks folder:

https://wiki.avlis.org/Needed_Files
You will need these files in order to log in, starting the weekend of 12 November 2021.

They replace avlis_main1_9a and 9b (you will no longer need these files after the change).

Q: What changed?
A: avlis_main1_10a & 10b introduce fixes to custom placeables, such as solidity (no more walkthrough furniture), missing textures, sitting direction and Z-axis (if a chair), and more. A full list of fixes will be provided under Development Updates after the change.

Q: Speaking of Z-axis. I have some chairs in my player housing which had to be sunk in the ground in order to achieve adequate height for sitting. What will happen to them?
A: We will revise player housing and other areas using affected placeables prior to this change. If you have a specific concern, PM Player Housing.

Q: I seem to recall a mention of a CoPaP hak update coming soon. Is this it?
A: No, this change affects Avlis haks only. CoPaP-wide fixes & changes are still in the works!

Can we start using these immediately for player housing building? I was just about to finish up work on a place that used un-walkable blocks to keep PCs from walking through tables. Can I delete the blocks and use these updated tables, then wait until these go live for my submission? Thanks

Yes!

& case in point, most preparations on our side involve removing invisible blockers & similar solutions from existing areas.

Note: 10b had a few duplicate entries. Revised & updated download link.

If you have already downloaded it, you can open the hak in the hak editor & remove the uppercase entries listed below (or just download it anew).

Code: Select all

Remove uppercase:
PLCTable_a01.mdl
PLCTable_a02.mdl
---
Keep lowercase:
plctable_a01.mdl
plctable_a02.mdl

Postponed launch date to weekend of 12 November, in order not to interfere with the Haunted Heartlands Harvest Trade Faire. Download & game on! :mrgreen:

Thank you for bringing this up - the URL format had changed. Fixed!
