This poster’s plight reminded me of an issue I’ve frequently run into with this game with “reset scumming” for a particular proxy, so I thought: “Why leave something so simple up to chance? We can do better.”
One wasted afternoon later, and I bring to you: ProxyGen, a FetishMaster mod that adds a menu upon starting a new game. This menu allows selection of any of the existing generic character DNA templates (including most race / gender combinations), and lets you preview your proxy’s description before starting. If the generated proxy is not to your liking, just re-roll it!
I’ve designed this mod with compatibility in mind – the mod only hijacks the new game start flow, so it should be compatible with everything else. It should also be easy to extend with your own character templates – refer to the README in the download for more information!
Please report any bugs in this thread!
Back up your game directory first in case something breaks.
To install, download the latest attached ProxyGen package. Unzip patch.zip (found inside the download) to your game directory. That’s it!
A Java NullPointerException may occur when navigating the menu. This is due to the game engine moving time forward one hour at the same time a forced event transition occurs. Unfortunately there’s nothing I can do about this (short of forcing more button clicks on you, the user), but the work-around is simple – just press the button that blew up again and nothing will blow up the second time.
