First i want to say hi to razor, I have been away for about 5 months. I was wondering if it is possible yet to bring maps & npc placement to single player mode. I was just wondering because ive just seen how far you guys progressed. I want to accomplish my dream mod. Any info would be extremely helpful.

what do you mean by NPC placement?

To place the npcs wherever you want

I assume you mean something that would load at map start after you placed them?

Yeah because you can already theoretically start a SP map, then go notarget & noclip and then just move around the map npc spawning then go back to the start, turn off the cheats and save and play it like that.

Right, what i want to do is load a map with npcs in certain places. Also how would maps load in sequence, example say you complete a custom map in sp then how would another custom map load right after that? Ive never approached anything like this before. Basicly what i want to do is convert single player into a whole new game. I just need to know what direction to go in. Ive been wanting to do this since i started modding but it wasnt possible at the time. I spoke with you razor about this when the game first came out.

"then how would another custom map load right after that"
There's an ICARUS command that loads a new map, if I recall correctly

Sure, that's doable, but you'd have to make the NPCs spawn from externally created text file. I know that Unique did that for the holocron stuff, maybe you should ask him about it.

What is the holocron stuff? Where could i get a copy of it so i can study it? I just need to know how the maps load & load in sequence & what files need editing?
