I guess i should add: I want to make a self created category- would I be able to put another category within that? Making a roads plugin, with various styles and options so this would be helpful, especially if road decos become too tedious or wont do what i want in some cases.

Yay, I got it to work. Seems, at least for me, easier to use separate jsons- as loaded in one json, even with category ids in alphabetical order, i could not get it it work. But with separate jsons for each category in the zip and the main category with file name "acat...." and the categories within "bcat...." and within those (kinda crazy just testing, all 3 within transport category :D) "cat...".

I could not make my category work

Code: Select all

[
  {
    "id":"cat_neuterland",
    "ordinal":0
    "type":"category", 
    "category":"$cat_zone00",
    "frames":[{"bmp":"neuterlandicon.png"}],
    "title":"Neuterland",
  }
]
After that, I tag all of my .json with

Code: Select all

    "category":"$cat_neuterland00",
I have 1 .json for the category, and 6 other for my RCI zones.

It gives me error, stating that no such category could be found
