Required string '{' missing


This is always due to a new pk3 you've downloaded having a missing brace ( } or {) from an .npc or .sab file. You should either contact the author or you can fix it yourself by opening the pk3, going to ext_data then either sabers or npcs. Open all the files in these directories and check them for a missing brace.


Here is an example of a working NPC file (Jawa)

Notice how there are two different types of braces before and after the personality instructions?



Check your .npc and .sab files in the pk3 you're having problems with and see if any braces are missing, if you find one then simply add it and save.

I seem to be having this issue with my Base NPCs for whatever reason. Some NPCs will spawn, but most of them don't. This issue is exclusive to Multiplayer - it works just fine in Single Player.

EDIT: It seems to be my Manual Blocking NPC mod that was causing the issue - I might have to make it only change the saber wielders.
