I'm trying to figure out how I use a mod I've created myself in a new map mod so I can zip the whole thing into one mod and let my friends play it. I've got all files needed for this (texture folder, the i3D file, SHAPES file, xml, DDS, a modDesc.xml and a store.DDS)

Does a zipped map mod intended for multiplayer deny usage of external mods somehow, or is it possible to redirect import of XMLs to a sub-folder in the zipped map mod directory?

A modmap may also include vehicles or placeables. To reference use filename="$mapdir$/.."
In multiplay certainly all participants (incl. server) must have the same mod.

Just for clearance: the mods inside modmap must be unzipped before you zip the complete map.

Thank you,

I have tried to figure out where to locate classnames. I've experimented alot on makeing husbandryChicken.xml to load up with no luck because I don't understand how classnames works..

I've succeeded on farmSiloLarge.xml and farmHouse.xml simply because I copy-pasted it, but I don't see where e.g. the large silo's classname is listed in it's xml.

The 'className' refers directly to the required LUA script of the placeable.
See for reference

You are fantastic.
Thank you once more!

It worked on the default husbandry, but my own didn't

I get the following log error:
2020-12-04 22:39 Error: i3d 'C:/Users/Yngve/Documents/My Games/FarmingSimulator2019/mods/NyFosnes/Cowstable.i3d' could not be found.
2020-12-04 22:39 Error: failed to load i3d file 'C:/Users/Yngve/Documents/My Games/FarmingSimulator2019/mods/NyFosnes/Cowstable.i3d'

I don't know how relevant it is, but this item appears ingame if I place it in GE.
Colideable w/ textures etc- just not with the needed functions because I do not own it

It should also be noted that the correct path is .../NyFosnes/maps/ModsUnpacked/CowStable/cowstable.xml (the game ignores my ModsUnpacked folder)

You must adapt all filepaths relative to the map's root folder.
Eg. if you have in defaultItems
<item ... filename="$mapdir$/placeables/farmSilo/farmSilo.xml" ...
this xml must have
(if i3d is in the same folder with xml)

Also notice if a map's placeable is available in store, you must declare this in the modDesc.xml with
<storeItem xmlFilename="placeables/farmSilo/farmSilo.xml" />

I didn't understand what you ment at first, and now I got it working.
I'm so happy, I could kiss you. Thank you SO much for your shared knowledge!
