    Help: Custom Mod Chest will not spawn my item

    First off, I'd like to say hello, as this is my first post on this forum. I have this posted on the forums Runic Games site but no one has got back to me on this so, I am hoping someone here can help me out :-)

    I am unable to get any thing to spawn even a monster out of my chest not sure why? This problem is no doubt user-error. I had this working before; I must be missing a step.

    Thanks
    -=Jesse=-

    Here are my steps in detail.
    * Open TorchED
    C:\Program Files\Runic Games\TorchED\Editor.exe
    * Load a Level/layout:
    C:\Documents and Settings\JoJo\Application Data\runic games\torchlight\mods\Antwerp\media\layouts\Antwerp\1X1 ENTRANCE_E\entrance.layout
    * Right Click in the white area under the word Layout
    * In the "Fly Out Menu" -> Building Blocks-> Unit Trigger
    * Rename “Unit Trigger1” to “Chest Rare Jesse Trigger”

    * Select the Chest_Rare_Jesse trigger
    * In the right hand side of the window
    * Look for “Properties”
    * Look for “MODEL”
    * In the pulldown select “chest_rare”



    * In the Tool Menu -> Data Editors-> SpawnClass
    * Select basic right click clone
    * Name it “Basic_Jesse_Spawn”
    * Now it will have two unit types boots and sword
    * Delete Sword
    * Select the Unit's down arrow
    * Select "Rusty Blade"
    * set min to 1 and max to 1
    * Weight 1 (for one unit this will be find) Weights are important with multi items. Higher the weight more likely it will spawn in relationship to the other weights
    * Rarity Override -1 (for units it means ignore its inherent rarity)
    * Everything else should be blank or 0.
    * Save
    * Close the SpawnClass Editor's Window


    * In the Tool Menu -> Data Editors-> Units
    * In the Group pulldown select PROPS
    * In the Filter pulldown select OPENABLE
    * Under “Units” find chest_rare
    * Right Click on it and select Clone This Unit
    * Name it chest_rare_jesse
    * Select chest_rare_jesse
    * In the Display Name
    * Change it to “Chest Jesse In Game”
    * Go to the Treasure tab
    * Under Spawn Class pulldown select CHEST_RARE_JESSE
    * Set Min to 1 and Max to 1 (Setting this will make the name change in the game)
    * Save
    * Close the Prop Editor's Window



    * Now click on the “Switch to Game Mode” brown arrow
    * Open the chest
    Note: nothing comes out?

    I'm not very skilled in this area, but my advise is to find one of the areas that has this trigger already set up, such as the Crypt areas with a tomb or pedestal that you near and spawns skeletons, and then look at how that works.

    I'm afraid I just reached the extent of my knowledge on the subject. The main advice the devs had was to copy something already in the game and edit it from there, which is basically what I said above. Find something close to what you want, copy it, change it, save it as something else.
