Hey all,
maybe someone has an idea but after 3 days searching for my error i am giving up. I am editing a map and added some selling stations. Copied over some placeables i3d files and modified them. This all worked fine so far. Now i am trying something more complicated and wanted to create a AnimalHusbandry placeable. I used one from the map to copy over the triggers and stuff needed, created a new nav mesh, made the xml and all loads fine without any error when i placed it into the defaultItems. The objects in the i3d show up ingame at the right positions but all the triggers are missing. I can't figure out why... i checked all the collision masks and made sure its exactly as the other file.

Certain triggers work only if you own the associated farmland. Did you check this?

Else take as example maps with pre-built husbandries for comparison with yours.

Yeah did check that. I tried putting a placeable there that came with the map and it worked. I don't even see the trigger ingame when viewing it with F5, on the others i see the trigger boxes. All the objects from the placeable load fine though, just the triggers are missing.

Some mappers place the husbandries directly in map.i3d and the associated triggers later in defaultItems.

Hey Bilbo,
thx for helping. I guess i should explain it a bit more, i have all the trigges setup in the editor and showing. It all looks correct in the editor, when i compare the two, but ingame in my file only the objects like the feeding through load up, the triggers aren't there for some reason, when i check with F5 i don't see their bounding boxes like with other triggers. I so far succesfully created triggers for sell point placeable so i whonder where i went wrong this time. Maybe i try to recreate the whole file.

I'd suggest you use the FS19 standard method and insert all the triggers by the defaultItems. Pre-built triggers in map.i3d may not work in certain cases.
