The largely official Preys-World XCOM 2 squad

Postby Raid » Fri Feb 05, 2016 3:22 pm

As mentioned in the main XCOM 2 thread, I want to have a squad made up of Preys-World members, to promote hilarious stories and make our playthroughs a little more personal. I think it's going to be easiest if one person create the master version of the character pool, which I'll volunteer for. I will use the forum's file attachment feature to distribute it once we have a decent number of people.

So, create a character that vaguely resembles yourself using the Character Pool option on the main menu. Your nickname should be your forum name where possible (there's an 11 character limit I believe). You then need to export that character to a shareable pool file by selecting your chosen character(s) and hitting Export Selection, hit Create New Pool, and name it (something like PW{name} would be helpful).

Once this is done, navigate to *:\Users\{username}\Documents\my games\XCOM2\XComGame\CharacterPool\Importable, find your named pool file, and upload that file to the forum. I'll then download it, collate everyone into a single pool file, and upload that here for you all to grab. You'll then stick that file in the \Importable folder, and then in-game, import the characters to your active character pool. I've now typed the word pool so many times it has lost all meaning.

If anyone wants to make other, non-game-owning forumites and upload them, I'll add them to. Feel free to make them Dark VIPs so that we have to go and assassinate them on missions. It'll be funny.

There's a YouTube guide to exporting the character here:

How do you upload files to the forum?

When you use the full post editor mode there's a tab for uploading things underneath the submit and preview buttons.

Like so.

Might need to just email it to you Raid. When I tried to upload file just now, got an error message saying the .bin file extension is not allowed.

When did this happen?

Also, Awwwww.

Also also! I won't be picking the game up until next Friday so I'll be missing out on that fun for now.

Oh, drat, we'll need an alternative host then. Any suggestions people?

Edit: Actually you can just stick the file in a .zip and upload it.

It's been available since we upgraded to phpbb3 about seven years ago. :P

There's a 50mb limit for attachments across the whole forum though to stop people going mad with it and eating all our bandwidth.

It might be easier to link to a Dropbox or Google drive file.

Well.....that is shocking.

I'm going to have to buy the game aren't I.

I see I'm "available" and something about liking male chickens or something. How queer :) I look Flippin marvellous in pink. I hope that I go rogue and murder your team :)

Face choices are not plentiful unfortunately, but did the best I could.

Sorry twin :D

I only had your avatar to go on, hence the pink pirate look, terror of the high seas, striker of fear into the hearts of cabin boys the world over.

Yarrrr etc.
