So in TFTD... using that savegame-altering program by JL Enterprises, I've imported my guys from XCom 1. There's a problem; Danielle Dreyfus is a MAN now! D: African-American still, but a GUY now! Is there an editing program that'll let me change the gender of my aquanauts? I can't seem to find any.

These old tools are a bit iffy as far as soldier.dat file management goes!

Jenny's X-Com editor should do the trick. You can get it from: http://www.jennana.c...ects/xcomed.php

There's a subforum for it in game editors section here.

It works! However, it seems that "blonde" is the only option that stays correct when adjusting appearance type. "Black" and "Asian" seem to be mixed up. xD Ah well, can't have everything. (Also, it turned out that JL Enterprises' editor made EVERYONE on my team black when I imported them.)

In any case, thanks so much!

gender is irrelevant as far as game is concerned
that is why virtually any soldier editor ignores that

but I understand that it is not irrelevant for you ^_^

when I made my editor I used this info:
http://ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=SOLDIER.DAT_(TFTD)

see following offsets
31 >> 0=Male, 1=Female
32 >> 0=blonde, 1=brown hair, 2=Oriental, 3=African

with the help of this, you can use any hex editor
and change it by yourself if you want :D

Yes, but... in TFTD, the four things are Blonde, Brown hair, BALD, and Black, for the males. I don't see Asian in there.

EDIT: Alright, here's what I've got for the editor from Jenny.

If editing TFTD's soldier files with it, here's what you get by selecting the following items:

Males:
"Blonde" gives you a white blonde.
"Brown" gives you someone who's black.
"Asian" gives you someone with white skin, brown hair.
"Black" gives you someone who's white and bald.

Females:
"Blonde" gives you a tomboyish blonde girl with a red headband.
"Brown" gives you another blonde. THIS one will have short hair that goes down the sides of her head.
"Asian" gives you a black brunette with short hair.
"Black" gives you a white brunette with a ponytail.

I suppose I never realized there were two options to give you a blonde female in TFTD. xD I almost never end up with females on the team playing the game normally.

The labels in Jenny's editor are geared more towards UFO's set of ethnicities, but it works on TFTD files as well.

I like the smiling bald guy. To me, he's Krug (any surname). I'm funny that way. ;)
