Hello,
I have cloned a beautiful coffee table from Ingrid Studio (LiveLife). I have made 6 recolors from that table and the only table what show up in game is color Teal. The other 5 recolors doesn't show up in the buy menu. I have checked the objects with ID conflict checker, but that program didn't told me that there is a ID conflict. Can someone help me? Or tell me how to solve this? I have include a image and a download link with 6 coffeetables in this post.

The file names may be too long.

Each starts with
gss_livelife_3tile_coffeetable_
before there is a difference in file names.

try moving the "difference" further up

gss_livelife_3tile_ctable_teal.iff
MIGHT be short enough. That is 26 same characters so maybe it is one too many?

So you might be better off with
gss_livelife_ctable_teal_3tile.iff
or even
gss_livelife_teal_3tile_coffeetable.iff
or
gss_teal_livelife_3tile_coffeetable.iff


(I completely understand the preference to make the last part the 'difference'. That is how I discovered long file names can be a problem in this way)

Thank you! Thank you so much, i have changed the names and they all show up in the game. I never knew that a long name could be a problem.And now i know that i have to keep the names short in the future.

Thank you Raeven. hug

Glad I could help.
It's only the excessively long files names that are identical for the first 26? 32? characters that have the problem and most people aren't as overly descriptive+exacting as you and I are inclined to be. it took me absolutely AGES to figure out what the problem was. Omigoodness. SO frustrating.

This is literally the first time I've heard of anyone else having it ever. In what? 15? 20 years? Soooo .. Welcome! hug

(Also I have not spoken up before but you do a great job. not just with these but with the other recolors you've been sharing with everyone. You have a wonderful sense of color and texture. Well done, you!)[/b]

I think I need that black one in my game right now! laugh

I think we investigated in a thread here and found a limit of 25 or 26 characters I believe windows supported more than macs, or it depended on other factors on the machine but in the end I seem to recall us deciding on 25.

I believe the same rules apply to folders and as a possible point of interest the game will only see a specific number of subfolders deep (for some reason I'm thinking 14, but that seems very arbitrary).
