Default Getting old Nektulos to work in ROF2

I am having trouble getting old Nektulos to work. I saw this thread: http://www.eqemulator.org/forums/showthread.php?t=43130

Having the zone points etc working is strictly bonus. What I'd like to be able to do is warp into the old Nektulos (in ROF2 client) and be able to move around in it. I have deleted nektulos.eqg and the environment emitter text file, so it should be going to the s3d file.

If I go in via pok stone, my character is basically "drowning" (ground level is at my head) and I can only turn or run in place. If I use #zone 25 instead, I warp to a different spot and the correct vertical level, but I can still only turn or run in place. Is there a trick to being able to actually move? I also tried running Huppy's code in the second to last post in the thread above, but it did not solve the problem.

In the current peq, if you look in zone table, you will see two different entries for nektulos. the entry ID of 439 is the new version, 246 is the old. (look in the version field 1=new, 0=old) In the map_file_name field, make sure it has nektulos_classic as a value.

Also, the x,y,z safepoints values for the zone. (where you would go when you #zone in with #GM commands. Try adjusting that to where you want it.

In your doors table, (for pok > nektulos) make sure it's zoning to dest_instance 0. and appropriate client_version_mask (there is also 2 instances for pok stone) id 2057 is the old. 17151 is the new.

Yes all settings are as shown. I get to the old nektulos and my character appears in the right location, but can only run in place or look around. I cannot actually move anywhere. Is this where we have to whip out the dreaded word "geometry" and assume that's why it won't work?

To save you a lot of time and energy here is a guide I wrote a while back that will still work today to get that zone working properly. Make sure to scroll down because I added more info towards the bottom of the post http://www.eqemulator.org/forums/sho...light=nektulos
