Problem description:

i put in teh code for turf but it continues top say that they cant read teh file


turf
grass
icon='grass.dmi'
icon_state="grass"
turf
water
icon='Water.dmi'
icon_state="water"
density=1

why!?!?!?

Presumably because you do not have the file grass.dmi or possibly Water.dmi

i saved it to the desktop, hell im lookign right at it!
i stilkl dont understand
In response to Rod5 (#2)
make sure they are spelt exactly the same, so it might be Water .dmi instead of Water.dmi notice the space in the first example. Little things like that matter.
In response to Rapmaster (#3)
nah bra i spelt it and saved it Water.dmi
turf
grass
icon='grass.dmi'
icon_state="grass"
turf
water
icon='Water.dmi'
icon_state="water"
density=1
see.
is it the icon state or something?!

In response to Rod5 (#5)
you indent after naming the object you are defining.
turf
grass
icon='...

double click the error message to jump to the problem.
In response to Rod5 (#5)
for indentation errors i always use shift+tab move everything to the left and re-indent.

i dont think icon states matter in compilation as it defaults to "" (blank) if it cant find the one specified so my best guess is that these files are not saved in the same directory as the rest of your project.
In response to Rod5 (#2)
It needs to be in the same folder (or a subfolder of) your .dme file. Not the desktop.
In response to Rod5 (#5)
"Inconsistent indentation" means that you are using a different amount of indentation in different places. In your example, you are using four spaces under turf but only three elsewhere. That wouldn't give you a compiler error, but some other mistakes would (like having a "world<<" line not be inside any procedure).

Of course, pasting code to the forum messes with tab characters, so if you're mixing spaces and tabs we can't actually see that mistake. Press control-T in Dream Maker to show the tab characters, and it should be clear where there are inconsistencies.
In response to Garthor (#8)
wait what?
In response to Rod5 (#10)
The files need to be in the same folder as your .dme file. Or, a subfolder of that folder. Being on your desktop will not work.
In response to Garthor (#11)
