I've completed both playthroughs on my ps3 and I downloaded willowtree# to try modding some weapons. When I make a modded weapon and put it into my game its not there! I read on google that you can't mix parts but i don't i just want to make a kick ass machine gun. I modded a shield and it worked fine but none of my weapons do please help!

As of Patch 1.3.0 cross-part-type guns will not load into the game. You will have to make do with parts of the same weapon type.  nagy   talkScorpio-full.pnglog     13:40, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

As I said at the start I don't mix parts, when I make a machine gun there all support machine parts and combat rifle parts (only for the body and stock and stuff the support machine gun catorgory dosen't have) DK01 13:55, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

I'm just restating why the guns aren't loading. Perhaps a sample of the code you're using would help.  nagy   talkScorpio-full.pnglog     14:01, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Maybe you should try using gearcalc when making weapons. A Mexican Ninja 14:38, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

How does the gear calculator work? What do i need to do so that my weapons dont get deleted? DK01 20:19, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

In addition to not being able to mix parts between gun types, you also can't mix between manufacturers. Certain special parts are also incompatible with one another. Consider checking out this page for help. BLModding also has useful resources.  Dr Hax headshot.png  Skeve613ask Dr. Hax  20:34, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the help, but i made an S&S Serpens and the gear calculator aid it was legit, then i put it into willowtree# and saved it. When i put it onto my ps3 it wasen't there, just like all the other guns i created DK01 21:01, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Post the code and we'll tell you what's wrong. -- MeMadeIt 15:13, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
When you load it in to WillowTree are you setting the level as well as the quality sliders? If your quality is wrong the gun won't work. Gearcalc can show you the min level for each quality if you click the quality slider around.. WhackyGordon 19:41, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
Did you go and save your file at all thats how i at first didnt get my weapons in the game
Yes I made the quality max and the level 61, I save it at least two times both on the weapon and the save file, and third of all it wont let me copy and paste the code! WHY IS MODDING SO HARD!? DK01 12:15, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

Modding is NOT hard! You just have to know the 'rules'. "it wont let me copy and paste the code"? A perfect example of not knowing the rules ... or following directions! GearCalc clearly tells you to "Click to Copy". DUH! Besides, you do know that there's more than one way to copy, right? Did you try Ctrl-C? Besides, can't you type?! You sure can type a lot of WHINING ... so why not code? -- MeMadeIt 16:32, August 21, 2010 (UTC)
