Its a XML file so any texteditor will open it just fine. You need to look for this: 

<value xsi:type=”string”>{“title”:”Client”,”ID”:”L-8565-7747″,”shortID”:”M-001″,”firstName”:”Louis”,”surname”:”Wilkinson”,”shortName”:”Wilkinson”,”gender”:0,”photo”:”Cannibal_M03″,”traits”:[{“tag”:14,”tagGroup”:0,”alignment”:1},{“tag”:68,”tagGroup”:0,”alignment”:1}],”offense”:”ANXIOUS”}</value>

(Searching for “Character” will find it easymode). As you can see there is an arrayitem called “traits”. It looks like this:


You can have three of those, seperated by a colon. The example above has two traits.

“tag” is the trait ID. You can change it to any from the list below.

“alignment” is the ingame coloring – 1 is good and 3 is bad. (That means you can have the trait “butterfingers” but display it as a good trait).

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
