This post is directed at any of the original Mod Squad who may be still around. I'm the one updating Urban Chaos to take advantage of the capabilities available with he v1.13 (source code) mod under the UC-1.13 Hybrid project. The semi-closed Beta, but public base code, MP-Beta has had for a while now a new set of character traits and skills available; and in the long run I wish to update UC-1.13 to allow use of these traits (they can be turned off in favour of the old system, but I haven't figured out how to make the old system the default one yet).

Before I offend anyone by assigning new traits myself, I thought I should give the people that created the Urban Chaos characters first call as to what new traits to use. Sandro's original discussion thread on STOMP Traits is located Here . The first page seems out of date, so you may wish to just install one of Tais' SCI's and browse through the IMP creation to see what these traits do.

A mix of three Major and Minor Skill traits may be assigned.

Major Traits:
Auto Weapons
Heavy Weapons
Marksman
Hunter
Gunslinger
Hand to Hand
Deputy
Technician
Paramedic

Minor Traits:
Ambidextrous
Melee
Throwing
Stealthy
Athletics
Bodybuilding
Demolitions
Teaching
Scouting
Night Ops


One of the new Character Traits will be needed as well:
Neutral
Sociable
Loner
Optimist
Assertive
Intellectual
Primitive
Aggressive
Phlegmatic
Dauntless
Pacifist
Malicious
Show-off

These changes (indeed the replacement of prof.dat with the new XML based system) won't be taking place for the UC-1.13 Hybrid until probably sometime in the new year.

EDIT: I forgot, since Jubilee is in both DL and UC, I'll be using the same skills/traits, hopefully determined with input from the original modders, to update the character in Dl-1.13 as well.

There's an sp.ini in the UserProfiles folder. You can set the default values for the 'Start a new game' screen there.

Thanks again DepressivesBrot. I guess I can go ahead and import in the new mercs without having to directly worry about STOMP traits (so for all I've done in this regard is splicing in blank entries for the new traits in the IMP Items choices XML). Also should be able to resurrect Buns within a short period now that JA2 has 250's odd named characters available.

Hey Wil,

I just saw your post, uhm, a few months late but then again it's been years since I checked in.
I'm old modsquad and fairly sure I'm of no use, but in case you did I wouldn't worry about consent of any of the old crew. Wink

Thank you, I will be proceeding with the traits listed in this posting here. If there are any concerns, please contact me. It looks like I am on track for v3's initial release by month's end.

Yo Wil, You know that some of the RPCs not on this list have different skills from Vanilla? For example Razor is a sniper in UC. I read that specific post, but not much before or after it, so I could have missed if you are planning to properly convert the other RPC's skills to UC.

Thanks, I overlooked that; I simply spliced in the traits for A.I.M. mercs from on of the SCI's. I'll take care of setting up STOMP traits for A.I.M. Mercs based on the original UC prof.dat when I'm done with the map work I had planned for today.

@Lockie:
half a year late but yeah 1.13 is brilliant.

@wil: how did updating UC turn out? Got through it? I'd love to go through a UC1.13, haven't looked through the forum yet to see if it's actually live though.

Are Bearpit and Shanga still around?
