Ani's Shop For Clothes Pedestal Mod - Stress Testing

Post by blueberrybruises » February 26th, 2019, 8:43 pm

So..has anybody built and saved lots with a mod of this sort attached to it? Have you done it with a lot of the pedestals? How many?

I have up to 104 of these pedestals on a single lot.
I could possibly fit more.
Supposedly you can not use accessories on them, but the accessories are saving just fine, that I have tested so far (3 pairs glasses only).

Has a saved outfit ever successfully been transmitted via a saved lot?
Would anybody like to help me test this?

Wow! The most I've tried is 10 lol! I would love to help test this but unfortunately, I'm in the process of moving house at the moment so don't really have the time but I'll be watching this thread with interest. :-)

I'm not quite sure what you mean by this bit:-

I have saved the lot I have with the 10 pedestals to the Library but whenever I place it in another town, all the saved outfits have disappeared. Are you asking if the saved outfits on each pedestal are saved with the lot? If so, I think the answer is unfortunately no. Sorry. :-(

Do you really mean "saved a world" as in "creating a world in CAW and saving it" (or exporting it - whatever world creators do to make their worlds available for others to play)? If so, I have no idea about this as I've never created a world.

Or do you mean "saving a game" in an existing world, where you've placed a Lot that contains the pedestals? In this case, yes, I believe it should work but haven't tried it myself recently. Although, if your intention is to share the saved game with other players, you will need to bear in mind that they might not have the same CAS items installed. :-)

I'm testing Anis Shop Pedestal too and I saved my lot with the pedestals to library, placed it in another world and it worked,
but not in the first moment.
  • After placing the lot in Edit Town go directly into build mode of this lot without changing anything and back out
Then you will see the manaquins pop up the way they should.
  • Now leave edit town, back to gameplay modus and look into it, all pedestal mannequins should be right with the selected outfit you gave them befor and all created outfits too,
- only if you set up names they will be gone
(I don't know if there is max. amount of pedestals you should not increase when saving to library, I will find out in the futer :)
- you can also use Debugenabler to klone the stocked pedestel instead of transfering)


Do you know how many outfits for main category are valid for one pedestal, what is the maximum?
When I tested the saving and import lot I had 8 outfits max for one pedestal. I only tested with two stocked and 5 unstocked.

For the ones who will try this mod too, some more setup information I experienced:
  • first set up all first level outfits for each category
  • then choose the Category you want to diplay: Only one per pedestal is allowed (unfortunately ...sigh)
    and create the second and third outfit
    (if you try to create more than one outfit for different categories - the previous ones will be deleted/overwritten)
  • click the Plus button if you want more than three only once (you will not see any fourth option in CAS)
  • go back and click the pedestal / choose outfit and click the last at the end of the list
    now this copied version has to be modified in CAS > go to pedestal/settings/mannequin/ edit in CAS again
    and do not change the outfit level - just go on modifying the outfit and then
    - click the PLUS again to make a Copy of it, if you want more
  • repeat this until you have enough outfits ;-)
Well this is my personel work-line, maybe there is a better one?

Attention: If you ever wanna use the Transfer option, be aware that the outfits are not being added in addition to the pedestal which will receive them - it will overwrite/delete all existing ones.
At least that was my experience, I had to reload the game without saving and lost in addition some created outfits
(so after each creation - save, save, save ;-)

I must make a change to the information, do not
-set up all first level outfits for each category - it seems, only the one you want to display is allowed to stock!

I experienced that after reloading game all 7 outfits given to main display category are "empty" now, cleared out?
I read over MTS that a user had this effect too, but nowhere is documented why this happen. I guess, you only can stock one category for one pedestral.
Yesterday I could not even reload my save properly, when running in-game time - it crashed to desktop. This save I had made after creating many outfits in CAS. Luckily I have a good save right befor.
One pedestral I only stocked the displayed category with 6 outfits and everything still shows up right.

Is there anybody out here who knows exactly about the limitations and don'ts?

Well now I know for sure:
​​​​​Only 6 outfits in one clothing category of one pedestral are max. allowed.
Then you can savely reload your game without loosing all outfits and save the lot to library and place it in another world too.

Stress Testing is a hard lecture, because some works some don't, I finally summarize my testing:
- only 6 outfits in one clothing category of one pedestral are max. allowed.
- but for saving the lot with pedestrals: only the Allday category works,
because all other categories will be resetted to display allday category and all ceated outfits of what this pedestral was set for are gone.

Please, I think these notes should be added to the documentory page. If someone else has some more information to add, please do ;-)

In the end, I must say that I therefor can not use this pedestral mod much, because I definitly need the possibility to save all creations I made to use them in other worlds too, not only allday. I will use the EA pedestral instead, they at least save perfectly and you can use
- 3 outfits for each category (18), for both genders and all ages from child to senior included in one pedestral
Only the handling is annoying a bit, so

if someone could improve Ani's Shop For Clothes Pedestal Mod it would be great.
