Problem with upkeep and guards!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to setup my server to have no upkeep, I've set the free tiles to 441 tiles or 10x10x10x10 using the upkeepcost mod and want to make them pay for guards and new tiles.

 

Problem is when they make a default (5x5x5x5 with no guards) it puts 13s 20c into the coffers so they can buy guards until the coffers are empty and because deed upkeep is turned off they cant put any more money into the settlement. If they resize the deed, no money is taken from the coffers nor is it charging for any new tiles over the initial 441 granted in the config.

 

If they make a deed at 10x10x10x10 no money is put into the coffers and again as upkeep is not enabled they can not purchase any guards at all. They can resize the deed without paying for any tiles.

yes you can have no upkeep, that's not what problem is.

 

all I want is to give players 441 tiles free and a guard or two if possible and then they must pay for new tiles and guards after that with no upkeep. Why is that so hard lol

It may be easier for you to give them the money to pay for those tiles/guards after finding out how much they will cost initially if you don't want money already in the coffers by default.

Otherwise you may need to look into editing the actual database to change the default settlement sizes/guards. With upkeep disabled I don't know of a way to make them pay to resize so you may want to turn the upkeep back on so they can add money into their deeds.

Yeah I've thought about doing that but not sure about how to put money into the coffers when they first make a deed. Maybe I could use script runner mod but I have no idea how to write something like that.

 

also doing this players could abuse the system and create alts make new deeds and refund the deed,

VillageFoundationQuestion file

Have a moder altar this file and do something like this in this method. This will for example not allow the default 5 min tiles in any direction and cant go over 50 tiles or what ever you set it to,

One of the moders can make a mode with a properties file to set these at what ever with a properties file just need to get a moder to do it for you or you can alter this file your self with something like intelij.


 

//Minimize how much land owned
    boolean parseVillageFoundationQuestion1() {
        String key = "back";
        String val = this.getAnswer().getProperty(key);
        if (val != null && val.equals("true")) {

        } else {
            this.error = "";
            this.selectedWest = 5;
            this.selectedEast = 5;
            this.selectedNorth = 5;
            this.selectedSouth = 5;
            key = "sizeW";
            val = this.getAnswer().getProperty(key);
            if (val != null) {
                try {
                    this.selectedWest = Integer.parseInt(val);
                    //|| this.selectedWest > 50"added code"

after reading your post again this wouldn't allow adding more than 50 in the example it would take more coding in this file but this file is where you need to do all the changes you are wanting to do.
