Custom NPC character creators

Hello everyone!

Just a quick post for anyone who's frustrated with editing files in a text editor. Newlife's Custom NPC functionality is and will remain based on creating .yml files, but a couple of players have made tools to create NPCs. I know that a lot of people prefer using these to editing the files directly.

In particular, FreshSalad has recently set up a blog to host their tool. That means that there's one place you can check instead of relying on me updating a link to Mega. You can check out their blog at https://freshestofsalads.blogspot.co.uk/ . This is completely up-to-date, and supports the new trait added in 0.3.17.
The other tool for NPCs is made by Axeon, the all-powerful Ruler of the Newlife Wiki. That's at  https://newlifecc.codeplex.com/.

The next Newlife release is coming along moderately. Lots more internal changes than I'd anticipated, but it should be ready soon(ish) - in the next handful of days I expect.

  1. Well gosh, I guess I would be remiss if there wasn't a link to the wikia here: http://new-life.wikia.com/wiki/New_Life_Wikia

    1. Do you get notifications when I reply to your blog comments? I'm making a few changes to the custom NPC traits for 0.3.20, so I thought I'd give you advance notice:
      - REPAIRMAN, LOWLIFE & SALES_BOSS to be mutually exclusive
      - SALES_BOSS trait added: only one custom npc with this trait will load in any game.

  3. what traits does a NPC need to show up at dance class, i keep making NPC with different traits and personalities but while they do show up at the gym, there are always ones created by the game itself that populate the dance class

    1. The dance class NPCs can't be custom ones.
