Nodegraph Editor
< >
Spec oups 11 hours ago 
For some reason, the last time I used this on dm_tech, it just didn't work. The nodegraph didn't appear, it was like I didn't do anything. It's kind of frustrating considering the amount of time I spent building the graph for this map.

It worked perfectly fine for other maps I modified the nodegraph of, such as dm_carousel or gm_ninfields, but I believe there is either something wrong with the tool or my game. Maybe the fucking nameless garbage that is steam cloud is erasing my custom .ain file and restoring the old one...

I'm clueless tbh...

Which really sucks since I now have to find a new map, lol.

Tested and works fine on Evocity_V2d and edits of Evocity. But Evocity_v33x is not compatible with nodegraph editor.

Extreme useful for NPC Spawn Creator
Edit node graph -->save file-->rename file and put into folder-->reload map
Now I can use one patrol point to order npc go through the whole map

i saw the video but i can't use this...
Mallard Sep 12 @ 9:41am 
How the hell do you use this?
Black Dash Sep 5 @ 4:26pm 
That is a great job Silverlan!
I only have one question (really only one):
Is there any chance to be updated with the climb and jumping nodes?
I just asking because I love that tool I noded more than 400map with this
Virginia Sep 4 @ 7:54am 
Damn, well good excuse to learn hammer. Thanks.
Silverlan  [author] Sep 4 @ 7:51am 
No, hints are built into the map itself, not the nodegraph.
Virginia Sep 4 @ 6:34am 
I cant find anything so I doubt it, but I'll ask anyway. Can't edit hints with this can I? crouch, jump single file hints etc?
Silent Assassin Aug 22 @ 9:09pm 
any one know why some maps wont work when i use the nodegraph on them, a map i tried to node is keeps giving me this error in console

"Error reading PAK file header! maps\graphs\rp_evocity_v33x.ain ( ID: 1678, Method: 62862, Compressed: 31, Uncompressed: 1936744813 )
am i doing something wrong or placing the ain file in the wrong space?
Silverlan  [author] Aug 20 @ 11:17pm 
There's not. The amount of nodes is limited by the source engine.
Silent Assassin Aug 20 @ 10:52pm 
ok i was just asking if you dont want to work on this addon im not telling you to all im saying is that i wanted to know if their was a way to increase max node's per map. I dident expect you to rispond i though some one else would tell me a way to have more nodes per map.
Silverlan  [author] Aug 20 @ 10:49pm 
I quit years ago, I don't know why people haven't realized that yet.
[DoW] King Tsunami™ Aug 20 @ 7:01pm 
I think Silverlan quit Garry's Mod.
Silent Assassin Aug 18 @ 5:32pm 
Is their any way to increase the amout of max node's?
Eye Of Justice Aug 6 @ 3:06pm 
Need update for this
Ruf CTR3 Aug 1 @ 2:30pm 
It's old
Black Dash Jul 31 @ 5:33pm 
Your best work is this Silverlan,good job!
I have only one question:
Can you do the jumping nodes to work?
I know you don't playing with gmod,but if you can do this one thing I can give you many respect
serverlegion303 Jul 31 @ 10:04am 
good work silverliam it's a very inserting concept for bulding a cene even improving show cases of npcs or snpcs dat navegate wit node graph and very useful in non/ bad/triqy nodded maps to not or do realy suprise results
Kiero Jul 31 @ 7:36am 
i like this mode, but i have no idea how to correctly use it, i may just be dumb but...does anyone know what maps people have noded and uploaded???that are actually noded???

@Field Marshal Erwin Rommel; You have to enable extensions in Windows settings. Look it up on Google.
GySgt. Shekels™ Jul 27 @ 2:39pm 
Once you edit a map's nodegraph and you move it to graphs, do you have to delete the older .ain file?
Slїcк Яїcк Jul 26 @ 11:23pm 
@-|MLG|- 420mLgWeEdNoScOpEr Basically a node is a point on a map where an npc can travel. Making a network of these nodes makes it easier for an npc to maneuver around the map instead of chasing a target on a linear path. This mod allows you to make your own node graph instead of doing it in the hammer map editor.
JustAnotherRandomK1d Jul 11 @ 7:08pm 
sooooooooooooooo, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?
Field Marshal Erwin Rommel Jul 8 @ 8:58am 
I changed it to .ain and its still a text document file
Tebryn Arbandi Jul 7 @ 9:08pm 
figured out the problem with the playermodel stuff. It turns my character into the Half Life 2 playermodel. I'll experiment with the addons that are conflicting for whatever reason.
Tebryn Arbandi Jul 7 @ 9:03pm 
Whenever I use this, it works. However. Viewmodels for my playermodel and the physgun do not appear. When I kill myself ingame, there is no corpse. I continually get errors for random addons that shouldn't conflict (ie fallout npcs and parakeets pill pack). As far as I know, this only happens on Age of Chivalry maps. I haven't tried it on any other maps at the moment.
MysticVoid7x9 Jul 4 @ 7:49pm 
@xXx_TURRET MAFi0SO_xXx. Striders will not walk with this. Getting Striders to walk would require using a map editer like Hammer to make the special air nodes that they need to walk around.

I can't say how to do it myself because I am only just starting to learn how Hammer even works, but even so that didn't stop me from learning how to make npcs jump.

How to convert for windows 8?
ghosttoast May 17 @ 5:26pm 
this mod is super cool great job silverlan,great job
SuperSheep May 16 @ 11:33pm 
I loaded a map, got out the tool, put some ground nodes and linked them, saved the graph, converted it to ain, moved it into graphs folder, reloaded the map and there are no nodes even with ai_nodes on, I click restore and in the console, it says "unknown graph file" HELP ME!!!!!. I think it has to do with the new update but please fix this.
Lithium May 6 @ 1:00am 
It's too bad that this can't be used to make air nodes for helicopters (only smaller air npcs like manhacks and city scanners use them) or hint nodes. That would be cool.
Jackarunda Apr 19 @ 9:35pm 
I downloaded this and promptly created a set of ground nodes for cs_office. Saved, moved the file, loaded it up, and I finally have Combine chasing me through the halls and around the desks, navigating like total bosses.

strider walk ?
Psycool(싸이쿨) Apr 5 @ 2:53am 
I followed your tutorial as shown in the AI does not work...
Sonicfall Mar 30 @ 10:15am 
This is a great addon but I have two things,
1 - Air nodes dont seem to affect birds (NPCs)
2 - There is no jump node, as in jumping off a ledge. Can this be done a ground node?
Combine Metrhaeic Jan 30 @ 3:07pm 
Can someone make a video tutorial for this because I'm not so good with in-depth technicall crap, and explaining it to me via text usually is hard for me to understand and follow correctly... Just asking.... :)
Giant Epic Douche-Canoe Jan 11 @ 9:59am 
does this allow me to make strider nodes?
GIRNT@RO Jan 10 @ 9:20pm 
Audacity | The Bandit Bible Dec 4, 2014 @ 2:19am 
I tried to do this on a map without nodes, but npc still couldn't move, do I need to do anything other than save it?

and in depth explanation of what to do would be nice thanks <3
Snap Nov 13, 2014 @ 11:21am 
Thanks for the addon. This works great for Team Fortress 2 maps that I want to mess around in singleplayer. Although to addon users, I suggest copying the original .ain file of the map you're going to work on somewhere in case you want a backup if something goes wrong.

If anyone is having trouble converting the "mapname.txt" file you get after you save the graph to an .ain file (like me), I found an easy way to do so off the internet (for Windows XP and 7).

"Open the folder containing the .txt file
Click "Organize" then "File and search options"
In the "View" tab find "Hide extensions for known files types" and uncheck
You should now see the .txt file suffix and be able to change it to .ain

(You'll get a warning message that you might corrupt the file by doing this but as it's exactly what you were doing in XP you can ignore it)

If you need to do this regularly then leave the tick box unchecked otherwise reverse the process to hide the file extensions when you don't need to."
TheStingerDecoy Nov 1, 2014 @ 7:29am 
What are you suposed to write in the console?
Red Eclipse Oct 31, 2014 @ 6:14am 
This isn't working for me. I placed all of the nodes on a DOD map, and I followed everything it said, I used WinRAR to change the file type, I placed it where it needed to go but when I load the map, no ai nodes.

Any help?

Ah so that's the problem. Well then you have my apologies if what I said came off as rude. It is quite disappoing though not being able to add climb nodes in-game due to a problem out of your control.
Silverlan  [author] Oct 28, 2014 @ 8:56am 
It's not 'fixable' because climb nodes cannot be created via the nodegraph alone.
| ℬℙ | Lord Ptolemy Oct 28, 2014 @ 3:53am 
I would love if the developer would fix the climb node. Doesn't look like it's going to happen.
Field Marshal Erwin Rommel Oct 17, 2014 @ 7:09am 
@DaMelon199ッ The Climb Node is broken for now untill the Developer Fixes it.
Dornek Oct 9, 2014 @ 7:12am 
Man Can you say me How to Climb Node ? I am really stupid
