Where did you extract the mod?
Banana

C/Games/Project zomboid/mods

Try opening project zomboid and from the menu choose "mods"

The bottom right of the mod screen will show the path in which folder you must put mods.


It should be homefolder\Zomboid\mods

If I move them there, then they will cease to check in the game ...sounds crazy but it's true

Banana,

Do you play on Steam or Desura?
tommysticks
Nov 22. 13
I don't know the differences between the Desura build and the Steam build. I play on Steam and the Mod works fine.
If you're playing on Steam, and you place the folder TommyGuns in the Mod folder under:
C: > Users > YourUserName > Zomboid > mods

You also have to replace the game's reloading folder with the one provided here:
C: > Games > SteamApps > common > ProjectZomboid > media > lua
This may not be the exact location, but it should be pretty similar.

These two folders are in two different locations.

I guess it's an older version of project zomboid then?

Pressing L and f8 dosent work, it dosent spawn the items in my inventory

Nov 23. 13
Did you replace the game's Reloading folder with the one that was provided?

The change should be in stormysReload under this directory:

G:\Games\SteamApps\common\ProjectZomboid\media\lua\Reloading

Where G:\Games would be the HDD and Folder in which you installed the game, not where you put the mod.

Have you come across any of the custom items yet?

I'm trying to figure out if it's a problem with the whole mod or with the reloading Lua.

That's really weird, did you try test spawning them?

Press L+F8 in game, and it should spawn everything I've added.

This method works, but it is so lost all interest ...I would prefer to find these items

Updated mod,in has created the world in unexplored homes i find new items.it pleased:)
tommysticks
Nov 27. 13
I'm glad to hear that it is working now. I only recommended pressing L + F8 to make sure the items were working correctly. I agree that it ruins the game doing that, but it is a good troubleshooting tool.

Hope you enjoy the mod :)
tommysticks
Nov 26. 13
For those that are only able to find the AR-15, download the latest update and it should fix the problem.

I recommend testing the Mod in a new game by either turning Zombies off and Loot to abundant in sandbox, or simply pressing L F8

S&W 38 Spec uses .38 Special
MP5 uses 9mm
Ruger 22 uses .22
Colt 1911 uses .45 (I haven't actually seen the 1911 spawn in-game, may be a problem with the distro script)

hiya i have just installed the mod followed the instructions. and now my game will not run and by this i mean it loads the window for the game for about 5 secs then it closes with out anything else happing. please could u help
tommysticks
Nov 30. 13
Hey, I've only experienced this one time. I used it with the new(er) beta release. The mod made the game crash just like you described.

To fix this, I opted out of betas on steam, then verified the games files. That brought PZ back to an older version, then I reinstalled the mod.

Hope that helps.

file Stormy updated on the forums with one change to make reloading work for all guns.

i find something but i just cant make it work i know it has to do with that file but how exacty what do i change ??
tommysticks
Nov 27. 13
Hey man

Do you play on steam or desura? I haven't tested the Mod yet on Desura, so that may be the problem.

I've found that usually when someone has a problem with the mod, it has been installed incorrectly. I am on a different computer (away from home) and just downloaded PZ with my mod and it works fine.

I am currently reverting back to the old reloading Lua to see if I can find out what is causing your problem.
tommysticks
Nov 27. 13
Check it out,

With the original game's reloading Lua all the guns I've added have unlimited ammo and don't require reloading. So if you can see the guns in-game but they aren't properly reloading, that means the reloading file I provided was not placed correctly.

Where you have my mod, under username/zomboid/mods, the reloading file should not be co-located. You need to replace the reloading file at this location:

Steam\steamapps\common\ProjectZomboid\media\lua

With the reloading folder that is provided.

Also, everytime I update this mod there are a few changes, some of the old updates don't work very well. I recommend downloading the updates as I put them out.

Hope this helps!

Can we get a MP5SD5 or a suppressor to attach to the MP5? Also, modify it so it can use a TacLight. Maybe even some form of a laser which gives an accuracy boost?
tommysticks

MP5QDL is on the list when I get home.

Rock on. Do the added weapons have sprites? My ARQDL looks like a shotgun lol.
tommysticks
Nov 28. 13
Not at the moment. I think currently there is not a way to do that.

So all the weapons either us in-game sprites or none at all.

lol yea, im going to put out the mod i made prolly later today, was just waiting on trying to figure out the icons, but thanks to you i have them all made now. And would you mind if i used the gun lights like you have? was thinking about doing it but never messed with it much and you beat me to it lol, and im not talking about the weapon attachment, just the lighting code.

To update your mod do i just download it again and put it in the mods folder where the old one is?
tommysticks
Dec 8. 13
Yes, you have to entirely replace the folder TommyGuns under your Mod folder.

The reloading folder does not get updated, so you don't have to keep replacing that one.

does changing the loot rarity affect the drop rates for your mod? or is it only for the vanilla items? like lets say if i wanted to change the rarity to extremely rare in sandbox, would it change anything?
tommysticks
Dec 9. 13
Good question, I have only tried sandbox with rarity on abundant for testing purposes.

I'll mess around with it.

tommy, i'm playing this game on my Mac and your mod is working perfectly exempt for one this that i need to know. I had to transfer all of the file into the SteamApp to make it work, so right now, the mod is one with the game, but one thing that i can't figure out, where do i put the Distro, Prof and Reloading file, bcd if i put it in Zomboid>mods, i get a lot of errors like theres no icon and such. If u know where can i put it, it would be awesome.
tommysticks
Dec 10. 13
That's really weird that you had to transfer it to the steamApp.

I don't think the icons will show up from that location in-game. In the in-game items list, the items get their icons from an unaccessable place that the devs have made accessable via Mod loader under a folder titled "textures", which is case sensative, where all mods should have their icons placed.

If you don't mind playing with icons, though, you can put the distro and reloading folders (those are the only two that currently do anything) in the lua folder located here:

SteamApps\common\ProjectZomboid\media\lua

You will have to rename the reloading folder though, as the in-game Reloading lua folder is also located there.

I'm pretty much making educated guesses at this point though, I don't know if the game will run with the file structure messed up with those added. If it won't, you can try taking the individual files out and placing them anywhere in the lua folder.

Sorry that was kind of confusing.

Hope it helps!

when i put it into steamApp, i won't be able to see it in the "Mods" menu in-game, but it will be in the game because i transferred everything to the right file, like the texture, i put it in the, java>mods>tommyguns>media>textures. i followed ur coding on the txt file and all of the icon appears, but it won't appear if i put it in, zomboid>mods. as for the distro, prof and reloading , i found a place to place into now but really ty for ur concern, i put them in java>media>lua, and i also made a new file in lua to put all of it in and it works great, again thanks for ur concern and thank you for this awesome mod :) the mod works perfectly fine now

one more thing tommy, is the repeated reload sound when you hold the LMB down a mod error? if so, will it be fixed soon?

The repeated reload sound is a PZ Bug - I think. I will have to check it out.

Fantastic Stuff.
Really Awesome.

Not sure how balanced it is, but WOW did the katana break fast. Again i am new to zombiod. So it could be the pace that they break at.
It would be nice to have a config file for that sort of thing.

Over all a REALLY awesome add to this game.
Thanks

The over the top stupid guns that you'd only find in some redneck area of one country in the entire world is exactly what disenfranchises most zombie game players out there, it's the number one complained about feature about almost all zompocalypse games from what I've encountered. So adding a military arsenal to the game is daft. I guess it's a matter of 'someone else would do it, so why not me' but it's still worth noting that this kinda crap makes suspension of disbelief hard.
tommysticks
Dec 23. 13
Thanks for the feedback! However, this is a mod that you can simply ignore if you only want the two in-game guns. In my opinion, it is harder to believe there wouldn't be more guns. If you were to loot my house you would find 5 of the guns that I've added and more than 1000 rounds, but I cannot make the likelihood of finding multiple weapons in one house increase, so it is more of a blanket distro.

The only weapon I agree with your opinion on is the M107, but it was a request by someone in the forums, and I can ignore it in-game.

Hi there, great mod--makes the game even funnerer! I have a question about an issue I'm having regarding the aiming rifle sprite: when I aim the rifle, there is no rifle in my character's hands. The pistol shows, the samurai sword shows, but the rifle does not show.

Have you heard of this issue before? Maybe it's a PZ issue and not a mod issue . . .
tommysticks
Dec 27. 13
I am currently un able to edit the actual weapon sprites, only the icons. Until the devs release tools to do this I need to use in-game sprites or none at all. Sorry!
IagainstI
Dec 30. 14
No, that's cool, I understand that the sprite won't look like an AK for example, but what I'm saying is that when my character aims the rifle, the standard rifle/shotgun in-game sprite does not appear at all--the character stands aiming an invisible rifle.

Hey Tommy, Awesome mod it make the game a lot more fun.. great job!
Anyway I'm playing on Steam and on a Mac and the mod works fine beside the fact that I've no textures of the guns and all the new stuff. It only show a question mark. It's not the end of the world but you know it's like I missing something!
I've placed the TommyGun folder in User/Zomboid/Mods.

Don't know if you can help but thanks anyway!

Happy New Year by the way!

You need to place reloading files in your game folder ( just watch the tutorial video ) in yourgamefolder/media/lua/reloading and it will work. I'm playing on build 21 and no problems at all :D

Thanks for this great mod, the weapons and items are awesome and I like that there are good and bad weapons ( strong and weak ). I found the bug where if you attach a silencer or a taclight to your weapon you lose all bullets in that weapon ( found it hard way - died because there were no bullets in weapon ). I love the survivors ax and multitool, not to mention that MRE ( meals ready to eat ) food. Also weapons don't lose durability which is nice, but is that intended?
