    new question along the same lines.

    if i wanted to add addition prefab chars for the single player game, what do i import to the bos.cam

    i already made an ent, zar, edited the txts, and added another prefab line in the campaign.txt

    i assume i dont import recruits.... do i import special? then pick the campaign.txt

    EDIT: nope just tried that didnt work... hmmmm...

    shoot sorry... I found it a few after I posted that. got involved with more fiddling with the editor and forgot to mention I found it. sorry about that, thanks for the answer though and I feel a little dumb now that someone saw it and I didnt edit it fast enough lol.

    also sorry for the double post. didn't know it was bad.

    I'll go see if there is a generic forums rules posted somewhere before i post again.

    How I can put the robot recruit in my team?

    How I can put the android recruit in my team in the beginning of the game? I used the editor and looked up in the entity folder for the recruits and I cannot find a file that holds that kind of recruit. What's the name of the file for the android or the humandoid that you could recruit.

    There's no androids in FOT, perhaps that's your problem?

    The humanoid robot is in the recruits folder, you just need to look for him harder.

    Adding Premade characters as recruits?

    Is it possible to take the premade characters that come with Tactics and add them to the recruit pool? Along the same line could you replace an existing recruit (like Farsight) with one of them?

    I did look around this forum but I didnt see anything that talked about the pre-made characters. I apologize in advance if its already been covered elsewhere.

    Just follow the above tutorial (linked) and just use the path of the prefabs.

    {mission00;add;entities/Special/prefab/prefab1.ent}

    etc.

    To replace Farsight in Brahmin Wood it's just the same as adding a new recruit to the map.

    Merged.

    Thanks for the advice. I was able to replace stitch and farsight with a few of the prefabs. I am not very good at the modding stuff so the help was really appreciated.

    Or was it just a joke?

    So you want to mod the game. We have a modding forum for that.

    Moved.

    And the only way I can think of is to open them in the entity editor and save them as .ent files.

    Then you can add them to the recruits list or place them on a map.

    File/open chr/save as. Can it be any more simpler?

    Read the forum, there's a couple of threads about adding recruits and links to tutorials.

    Are you trying to change the multiplayer character you create yourself by any chance? No can do. If you're trying to open the existing multiplayer charcters you need to use the 'open chr' choice.

    The board has an automatic word filter in place, to encourage people to type proper words and use the spell check function.
