Going to be adding avatars to the Breen and Cardassians in my mod soon. soo.... I do I go about putting in the little avatar box in the upper left hand corner. I don't know which sprite file I have to write the line in. Can someone give me some direction?

So at the beginning of the game, you have a StarbaseS, and that StarbaseS has a pair of Avatar weapons. Once you select one of them, it transforms into StarbaseY or StarbaseZ, and the icons are in those starbase files. Look for the line that says this:

(in bor_assi_matrixY)
avatarboxicon = "b_avatar_bor_optimizeS"

You will find the icon defined in gui.global.spr using this line:

b_avatar_bor_optimizeS avatars_small 0 128 64 64

where "avatars_small" is the TGA file and the numbers are the offset (which grid position the image is at)

Hope this helps!
