A Character/Deed EDITOR would be great.

I've been looking at the files and playing around with what it will allow me to do and I just thought a dude editor would be awesome. The ability to make our own characters up and use screenshots from other sources in a JPG format? or something simple. I do it for my avatars on forums all the time. I've found I can already change around some of the dudes specials by changing the #name to something from the KEYDATA Dude Files. So whatever you have between the [[ ]] next to Specialists of the dude/character can be edited.

Then perhaps a deed editor so we could create some more deed cards like Mortuary for the Undertaker bonus if the player owns it? Or if you VIC could add some more #desc #Name choices/specials like [[cashbonus_boothill_1]] "For every character sent to boot hill gain 1$" and/or [[cashbonus_boothill_Outlaw_2]] "For every character your POSSE sends to boothill gain 2$" and then one just like that for 1$ gain. I've been playing around with the file names and changing them around with what you've got so far. Like I changed the Prison to [[armory]] which changed it from 1vp for every character sent to boothill to for every lawman you own they get +1 to gunfight.

I'm not sure but pretty sure you have much of the desc code hard coded so I can't get to it to edit some things out. Like I tried to edit and make my own [[cashbonus_boothill_1]] from that vpbonus line for the Undertaker in the KEYDATA dudes file but it wouldn't work even though in the KEYDATA dude file I changed the vpbonus Desc and Name line to [[cashbonus_boothill_1]] It basically just didn't do what I had the card say it would do. Dudes would die and goto boothill but I would never get any 1$ for it until I changed it to [[cashbonus_boothill_2]] which YOU DID have code written for that for one of the other dudes in the game, wears glasses and looks like a coward? forget his name. lol There's another one that says vpbonus for every dude your POSSE sends to boothill. I changed it also to something else in that KEYDATA folder. So, it appears as long as you use the code Desc/#names from the KEYDATA folder dudes/deeds files it lets you change the Card Objects dudes/deeds files around a bit.

One can also modify the cost, upkeep, cash, vp and all that stuff on the card in that Card Objects dudes/deeds files. I made some successful changes that really made the game more challenging at least for me. I was winning without even thinking with the vanilla version of this. So was everyone else that I've spoken to about this games challenge and ai.

What changes did you make that increase the difficulty? Such feedback would be useful to hear.
