Scavenger Hunt - Randomised locators for a SHAR based scavenger hunt

Please login to contribute to the conversation.
Today in "dumb s*** I'm doing to test Lua P3D Editing", is Random Locators (nicknamed Scavenger Hunt by Baconman12). This mod randomises all mission locators to somewhere on the road map.

Settings:
Seed Mode:
  • No Seeding - This option will randomise locators on every load. This means that restarting a mission will change the locators.
  • Random Seed - This will generate a completely random seed on game load, and then cache every possible locator. This means that every time you play any mission for the duration of the session, locators will be identically randomised.
  • Fixed Seed - This allows users to specify a custom seed. Similarly to Random Seed, it will cache every possible locator on game load. This is targetted at races/seeded speedrunning.
Seed:
  • This is used when Seed Mode is set to Fixed Seed. This is a custom base82 format that is converted to a number. You will be notified if you specify and invalid seed.
Both Random Seed and Fixed Seed will print the seed to the main menu so you can confirm and save seeds.

v1.1:
- Actually made both seeded modes work.

v1.2:
- Made Pause menu show seed
- Made Unlock All Missions a RequiredHack
- Removed SetInitialWalk
- Added Type3 Locators

Cool! Are they at the same place every time?

Yes, if you use the same seed.
I mean when you close the game and restart it.
It's seeded. If you close and restart it with "Random Seed" or "No Seeding" then it'll be new. If you close and restart it with "Fixed Seed" then it will always been the same if you keep the same seed.
Now all you have to do is add no radar blips. Then it will be challenging.
This mod should be compatible with the already existing mods that do that
I've been trying to launch the game with this mod turned on and the game just... wouldn't launch? This started after I updated my mod launcher after my first playthrough of Scavenger Hunt. I've tried reinstalling the mod a number of times, I've tried reinstalling the launcher a number of times, this even persisted through resetting my computer. Is there something I'm missing with this?

I'm not sure, it's been played recently by others. Are there any error messages when the game won't launch? Do any other mods work?

Thanks,

Every other mod I have works just fine (granted this just means BetterAny%, SHAR Tweaked and the Forced Car Challenge). Its only Scavenger Hunt that does this. There isn't any error message that appears. All that really happens is I click "Launch", something starts loading for a while, and that's it. I've checked my Task Manager when I do this and apparently the game is running and taking up CPU as if everything is fine, but the game's just not there.
