Hello and welcome.

In order to help, you would really need to describe the problem in more detail. Left guessing I´d say - The 'entities'-tab will be empty until you select an entity. After selecting one, it fills up wit the relevant values. To create an entity, use the context menu (right-click the mouse in one of the 2D windows (X/Y-, X/Z- or Y/Z-view) and choose 'Create entity'.

Hope that helps.

What game version are you using on what OS? And what version of UFORadiant is it/where did you dl it?

I might be wrong, but if Radiant fails to parse the games script files, there might be some version conflict.

So you downloaded the 2.5 installer for windows from our download page. And also the separate installer for Radiant. What build date is that (Help->About)? And it correctly installed into the UFOAI dir (like C:/ufoai/radiant)?
For further investigation we would also need the log. This should be in a radiant folder bear the savegames, see http://ufoai.org/wiki/FAQ#General.

From the log it seems, UFOAI is located in C:/Program Files (x86)/UFOAI-2.5, while Radiant is in C:/Program Files (x86)/UFORadiant-1.6.0, whereas imo it would need to be located in C:/Program Files (x86)/UFOAI-2.5/UFORadiant-1.6.0. Maybe it is even required to be C:/Program Files (x86)/UFOAI-2.5/radiant, but not sure about that.
You could try to create a folder named 'radiant' in C:/Program Files (x86)/UFOAI-2.5/ and copy/paste the content of C:/Program Files (x86)/UFORadiant-1.6.0 there. Afterwards, line five of the log should read "XMLRegistry: Importing XML file: C:/Program Files (x86)/UFOAI-2.5/radiant/user.xml"

I am not familiar witht that kind of stuff, but I think Radiant looks for the script files using a relative path (like ".../base/ufos"), not an absolute one. So it needs to be located exactly in the ufoai main dir.

I ended up sending wrong radiant file.
I ended sending up the other one.

it's called radient2.log because I renamed it to differentiate.

So, which is the correct one? radiant.log seems truncated (shows only like ten lines), radiant2.log shows Radiant located in an invalid dir.

Did you ever read the answers I gave? In this post I already told you, the radiant dir needs to be located within the UFOAI main dir. If you installed from the win installer, there will already be a - not working - version. Copy your working radiant.exe there it it will do, hopefully.

Cheers.

I did that and... nothing...

Doesn't matter anymore...

I'm just going to play the game...


Note: gtkradiant and it's forks have different issues running in my computer (tried Warsow too).

I will just accept that.



Anyway I map in Source engine.

I know I'm replying to an old topic, but maybe it could be useful for any other people with same problem.
I got the same problem as ConsUme, but managed to work with some missing features for some time... until I compiled UfoRadiant from source. The problem is the link for UfoRadiant (for windows) in http://ufoai.org/wiki/Download points to a very old version (2012).
