#2960 Dear Pixelmon players, I am looking into recreating pokemon in a map. But, I have a few questions I need answered first.

1. How can I share my world so it can be downloaded as a map?

2. How can I make sure that only certain level pokemon spawn in certain areas?

3. How can I make trainers stay in one spot? (are they just as dumb as villagers, or smarter)

4. How can I make it so that I don't choose your starter pokemon for you?

5. How come nobody uses the healers in the pokecenters?

6. How can i allow people to buy things and have a working shop?

#2967 as far as i know, it is impossible to set up shops or put in items from a mod, such as healers, into a map to be downloaded by other people. i believe this is so that anyone can download the map and it wont autocrash because they may or may not have those same mods

#2974 A lot of these things you've listed just simply can't be done within the mod...yet. You can't control Pokemon spawns or trainers at this time, but I believe a development kit is being worked on that will eventually allow you to do that. I don't make maps so I'm not sure of the answers to your other questions. I know you can use the CreateShops filter for MCEdit to make shops, but I don't know for sure if you can sell things like Pokeballs and potions.

#3035 You might want to have a look into filters and MCEdit if you are looking into map making.

I'm not sure about trainers, but you use the AddPotionEffect filter to add a slowness potion to villagers to keep them in one spot and, as for shops, you can use use CreateShops to make trading shops.

get the world file and copy it out, i recommend compressing it aswell

2. How can I make sure that only certain level pokemon spawn in certain areas?

can't be done, yet

3. How can I make trainers stay in one spot? (are they just as dumb as villagers, or smarter)

you need to cage them

4. How can I make it so that I don't choose your starter pokemon for you?

use a server, you can host one on your computer that only you can connect to

5. How come nobody uses the healers in the pokecenters?

Don't understand question

6. How can i allow people to buy things and have a working shop?

You can

-use bukkit and set it up as a server map

-create a massive redstone behemoth using command blocks

-use custom npcs

-wait for stores in pixelmon

#7699 Alternatively for Question Four you can set the worlds spawnpoint for the entire world with /spawnpoint [x] [y] [z] or just go to the place you want to have as the spawnpoint and type in /spawnpoint. Then just delete the players folder in your save file before you distribute it.
