Smart terrain/respawner issues


I've recently resumed work on a particularly uncooperative part of my Shadow of Chernobyl mod, and am trying to make sense of why it's being so problematic and inconsistent. Basically, I added the Generators as a freeplay map to my mod a while back, and am now trying to populate it with mutants using smart terrains and respawners.

I currently have five smart terrains and five corresponding respawners there. Using a debug tool, I've found the following: One smart terrain is constantly fully functional, and restocks the same amount of its mutants every few days (except it stocks two less than I set it up to, but I'm fine with that). One is constantly functional, but either doesn't stock its mutants at all or only stocks two (out of nine). One says it only works when it's stocked with its mutants, but other than that, seems fine. And the final two are just plain completely broken.

The reason this is so odd is, aside from mutant type, all five of these smart terrain respawner pairs are set up identically in every possible way. Does anyone know what could be causing such inconsistency when they're all set up identically?

Some possibilities, te47, assuming vanilla mutants:

You didn't add the Generators map to the config\misc\smart_terrain_presets.ltx and configure it to support your mutants.

The respawners are producing mutants that don't fit rank-wise with your smart terrains.

The respawners might be filling open slots in other smart terrains.

Respawners on other levels are filling those slots, but it will take a while to get there -- or they can't get there.

Your respawners' [respawn] conditions lists don't have their conditions met or are not correct.

If you are using RPM, disable it (but don't remove it!). Use the vanilla-compatible mode for instant replacements.
