Hey everybody, just wanted to say that I'm super pumped about the continued development of IVAN, its been one of my favorite games since when it came out so a big thanks to everyone working on it. I wish I knew how to code so I could contribute! Peace, -Dirty Dingus Magee

It's a pleasure. I'm just grinding through the best way to store and retrieve the player's characteristics to assemble a ghost resembling the player - without introducing new bugs that crash the game of course

LIVAN (CVS? Don't remember) already had something like that for the "derived undead", maybe you could appropriate it? Or have you looked at it and it's kludgy?
If it's a matter of not having the previous player's stats on hand, can't you just throw them into the bones file? I actually dunno if that's how it already works considering the ghosts seem to be of varying strength.
