Does anybody know what kind of vehicle type should be a chainsaw or should it be:
<handToolType>chainsaw</handToolType>

You dont need to set the vehicleType in the modDesc.xml.
Just copy a 'chainsaw.xml' and edit to your needs.

An entry for the storeItem(s) would look like the following:

<storeItem>
<name>chainsaw name</name>
<functions>
<function>$l10n_function_chainsaw</function>
</functions>
<image active="pathToImage.png" brand="$data/vehicles/store/brand_XYZ.png"/>
<price>1000</price>
<dailyUpkeep>0</dailyUpkeep>
<xmlFilename>chainsaw.xml</xmlFilename>
<rotation>0</rotation>
<brand>MyBrand</brand>
<category>chainsaws</category>
<species>handTool</species>
</storeItem>

Thanx man,but I'm not talking about ModDesc I'm talking about actual tool Xml

Emil Drefers (giants.edrefers) 08.12.2014 16:40
Well,

<handToolType>chainsaw</handToolType>

should be enough.

You don't need any vehicleType, as it is no vehicle ;)

As stated above, just stick to the original xml Files and all should be good.

Cheers,
Emil

That was the first thing I did.Engine said:"No,no-man that would be too easy,
unknown type,
go back and rack your brain"
(Actual log entry ;) )

Hi,

this message seems too funny to be true ;)

What I just tried is the following:

- copy modDesc.xml from the samplemod to mods folder
- adjust it as mentioned in my first post
- copy all data for a chainsaw (including the default chainsaw.xml) from the original game to this mod directory
- start game, buy mod chainsaw -> be happy that it works

So, what I would recommend you to do: follow my steps and get a default chainsaw running as a mod.
As soon as this works check your very own chainsaw for errors/mistakes

Cheers,
Emil

After further review and to my amazement it worked .Apparently I was missing
<species>handTool</species> and that was it.
Thanx ,man, you were invaluable help. Without you I would have to take an ax to the trees.

I have to say this was one of the funniest entries I have read in a while, I wasn't sure what you wanted to walk around the map holding!
