This is for those that lost saves/characters in single player or those that don’t want to grind so much every time a new character is made in single player.
Note: This is valid for the current build of the game ONLY as it could very well could be changed in the next update.
Note2: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding.
In your save folder
open the Player.txt with any text editor.
I managed to figure out some of the parameters in this single line of text (the important ones):
Level: In this example the last number (10632) is the character XP
10632 = Lv 12
Skill Points: Since changing the XP in this way will not give any stat points, close to the end of the line you will find:
The last 5 numbers are:
Stat Points – number of stat points to distribute
Agility – !how many times agility was upgraded! NOT %
Fortitude – !how many times fortitude was upgraded! NOT %
Strength – !how many times strength was upgraded! NOT %
Stamina – !how many times stamina was upgraded! NOT %
Proficiencies: Ignore the various sub-points and go for the main skill points. Of course, on a new character these points will all be zero, so count carefully
:Missions/Startup|1|1|1|1|1|1|1|1|0|0|0:0:15:8:13:6::Mobile Technology|Civil Engineering|Lab Construction|Ground Vehicles|Basic Storage|Metallurgy|Chemistry|First Aid|Fabrication|Solar Technology|Computer Technology|Mechanized Monsters|Small Guns|Heavy Weaponry|Light Weapons Training 1|Melee Weaponry|Melee Weapons Training
Please note that on a new character instead of the various unlocked skill names (like “Mobile Technology”) you will see this :::::
2: Combat Points
10: Light Weapons
0: Heavy Weapons
0: Special Weapons
0: Tactical Weapons
3: Engineering Points
336: Industrial Engineering
100: Military Engineering
0: Aerospace Engineering
4: Sciene Points
8: Computer Science
9: Zoology research
That’s basically it. You can add resources and items also you could simply pick up various resources in-game, save, go to main menu, open the Player.txt file and edit the quantities and then reload the game.
