How to add custom names to the game

TUTORIAL

1. Prepare the name lists

there are 2 possibilities, Option a or b:

Option a:
Export the lists with the tool 'UABE 3.0 beta 1'
(https://github.com/SeriousCache/UABE/releases/tag/v3.0-beta1)
If the browser or virus scanner reports malware, you can ignore it.
It's a false positive message.

  • Start the tool 'UABE 3.0 beta 1' and open the file resources.assets from the game folder:
The Mortuary Assistant\The Mortuary Assistant_Data\





  • Click on the left on resources.assets (assets) and on the right you can search for the lists.
There are 5 Lists:
(You can find them easily by the Path ID)



PatreonNamesMale = PathID 339
lastNames = PathID 493
femaleFirstNames = PathID 547
maleFirstNames = PathID 654
PatreonNamesFemale = PathID 846

  • Export them by clicking on Plugins 'Export to .txt'


  • Open each .txt file (with Editor or Notepad++) and edit the names like you want (do not use the same name more than once).
The number of names in each list should be kept.

Option b:
  • Download my tool 'SteamFriendsToList' and start it
  • Insert your SteamID64 (if you don't know click on the '?' button, and a website will open. Insert your Steam Nickname and click on 'lookup'. Copy your SteamID64 and insert it in the tool 'SteamFriendsToList')


  • Click on 'Get List'


You can also add names manually with 'Add'
With right-click on a Name in list you can set the gender (optional) and with one left-click you can rename it.

Note: If you have less than 251 names, the tool will automatically fill it with original game names.
It also removes the last names on custom names.
Selecting a gender is optional, if left at 'None' then they will be randomly added to the male or female lists.

  • Click on 'Export Lists (randomized)' and choose a folder (doesn't matter where).
It will export 5 .txt files with your names in them:

femaleFirstNames.txt
lastNames.txt
maleFirstNames.txt
PatreonNamesFemale.txt
PatreonNamesMale.txt





2. Replace the ingame lists with your modified lists

  • Start the tool 'UABE 3.0 beta 1' and open the file resources.assets from the folder:
The Mortuary Assistant\The Mortuary Assistant_Data\
  • Click on the left on resources.assets (assets) and on the right you can search for the files.
There are 5 name lists:
(You can find them easily by the Path ID)



PatreonNamesMale = PathID 339
lastNames = PathID 493
femaleFirstNames = PathID 547
maleFirstNames = PathID 654
PatreonNamesFemale = PathID 846

  • Select the first (PatreonNamesMale) and click on 'Plugins' / 'Import from .txt'and choose your modified list (PatreonNamesMale.txt)


Do the same with all other name lists



3. Save the game file

If you have all your files imported its time to save your changes:



  • Click under 'File' on 'Apply and Save All' and save the file 'resources.assets-mod' into the folder:
The Mortuary Assistant\The Mortuary Assistant_Data\
  • Open the Explorer, go to the folder
The Mortuary Assistant\The Mortuary Assistant_Data\
and rename resources.assets into resources.assets.original
then rename your resources.assets-mod into resources.assets
(to have access to the file you have to close the tool 'UABE 3.0 beta 1' first)

Now the game has your modified resources.assets
Start the game and test it :)

(the more custom names you have, the higher the chance you'll see them in game)

Note:
If you dont want the mod anymore, then delete resources.assets and rename resources.assets.original into resources.assets

The game saves the names in savegame file.
That means even if you delete the mod and continue your shift, the names will still be in the game.
Only when you start a new shift the names will be new regenerated.
