    Protip: it's safe to add predefined, pre-positioned button definitions. Just give them all the questionmark image and increasing ID values.

    Thank you Kawa! I attempted that, but I did it wrong and gave up after one try. I'll do that with the next update.

    Not that i'm there yet, but on the off chance someone wants to add a 12th mod, because they're crazy and mod obsessed -cough- ...would it be possible to add support for a
    "page 2" button? that has another 12 race buttons you can add? I think that would pretty much make your awesome mod perfect.

    Negatory.

    Really? What makes you say that? I'm no modder myself, but this sounds far from impossible, let alone very complex for an experienced modder.

    Mere JSON edits can't do it, and I'm pretty sure -- but not that sure so I'll check in a moment -- that there's no Lua part involved. That'd mean the character creator's interaction part is driven by C++ code which we mere mortal modders can't touch.

    I checked. There's no Lua involved in either the character selector (which already has a paging-like thing) or the character creator. Only UI control and style definitions.

    ....if this is so easy to use why doesn't it work for me at all anytime I try to add a 2nd race.... There are no clear instructions on how to add a 2nd race anywhere (which there should be somewhere on your mod page...like...the front page), but I think I figured out how it's SUPPOSED to work...but of course. It doesn't actually.

    As much as I want to get my mod working with this, I keep running in to confliction issues with other races. :(

    First off, I love the mod! My Argonian race mod uses this one as a dependency. Such a simple change, but so effective.

    What you need to do is go to the charcreation.config file in the interface folder of your race mod and find it's button entry (the first one, not the second set at the very bottom for gender icons). First check that it's id number is unique from every other race mod installed (also check for the same unique id in the races x.species file), then in the "position" make sure it starts at [208, 0] and increases by 27 and decreases by 26 by the x and y coordinates respectively. So the first slot would be [208, 0] second slot [235, 0] fourth slot [208, -26] so and so forth.

    Hope that helps.

    We should index which races uses which slots.

    Or just push the devs to get rid of the index BS.

    Because if you lay index claims, it still won't work. Indices must be consecutive, and not everyone will want every single species mod just to fill in the gaps.

    uuh, could you put a mirror option? the dl on chucklefish site is bugging.
    Oh, and it would be good to have a readme teaching how to install \ use the mod
