Spawning Crew with Console Commands

    Recently, I've been reshuffling my ship crew in order to be a little more useful. In particular, I'm looking to find a chemist equipped with blue stim packs, in order to provide a jump boost while on my ship. However, after two days of doing NPC quests, I've only managed to find a couple of new chemists, either with green stim packs I already have or yellow ones I simply don't need (due to my EPP light augment). Even worse is that the wiki states that scientist NPCs have a 25% chance of being any one of the four chemist types, and the only two scientists who have offered to join my crew were as a janitor and a soldier, for some inexplicable reason.

    Looking at the wiki, I see it's also possible to spawn NPC crew members. However, they're listed as combat allies, and I'm not sure if that means I can add them as permanent crew members. So, is that possible? Or is there some other way of acquiring the kind of chemist I want without continual trial-and-error?

    I don't know about the commands all that much, but seems possible.

    What I roughly know, if not against the idea, is that job offers mod should along side one-click hiring, show who they are before hiring. That is if I remember correctly.

    Well, it turns out that's the case, since I just tried it out and I was able to hire them. That sorts that out, then.

    I know these posts are kind of old, but I have a question, just incase you know. If I where to spawn a crewmember WHILE in my ship, would they automatically become my crew even if I'm at the limit? I have a mod that is supposed to let me have unlimited crew, but it's not working, soooooooooo

    I have no idea, sorry. You'd be better off asking on the mod's discussion thread, instead of piggybacking the issue on this one.
