Ambset sounds not working on mediterranean climate

Post by Gonzalo »

Hi, you know I made beside tundra climate mediterranean climate with ambient sounds corresponding to each one of the climates. All worked till I discovered that weather (rain and snow) crashed the game on those climates. Then I made a laborious task of re-installing my mod to EE4 9.0. I discovered by reductio in absurdum that the problem was the audio databases, and corrected, but then only either of both climates had ambient sounds, Tundra OR Mediterranean =( ... Now I have tundra climate with ambient sounds, though some loops don't work. Any help would be appreciated. Code is shown below:

Code: Select all

Thanks in advance, I can't figure out what I have missed...

If problem solved, what was the reason?

Just I found a tricky way: I renamed the ambient set to something neutral, like temperate02...it worked. Now the problem is I can't add new terrain types to this particular climate. I try to add copying existing ones, but unlike in arid, in mediterranean climate it's very difficult. By the way, my mod now that I have copied it to fresh sample of original EE4 almost never crashes!! :)

All names in .ddf files must be unique. The game usually doesn't recognize which file they are in, so all climates .DDFs are load at once, as if they were in a single file. This is why you can't reuse the same name in Unit Type and such.
