    So I tried to make a new initial captain's log entry for hilda to maybe get some more story in, and I've worked out how to add a separate entry in characters_init.c. But for some reason, after adding two "\n" to add a new paragraph to make it more readable, the text after the \n disappears. But the weirdest thing is that if I add another paragraph, that is visible again. I have tried lonely "\n" instead of double, putting it at different places in the text, all kinds of things, but part of the text just does not want to show. Without the paragraph change it all turns up. I can't seem to figure out what's going on. o_O

    EDIT: Nevermind! I kinda sorta solved it. If I add another \n in the middle it all shows up. I don't know how or why it works, but it does and I won't question it

    A last minute late night update if you wanna add it into the new update xD A slightly tidier description for the story and a new log entry and slightly altered starting items if playing as Hilda :checklist

    Code:
        model.description =  "Piratess with a stylish purple coat";
        model.id    =  "HildaPiratess";
        model.FaceId    = 538;
        model.nation    =  FRANCE;
        model.price    =  2000;
        model.assigned    =  true;
        model.sex    =  "woman";
        model.ani    =  "33_Piratess10";
        model.height    =  1.75;
        model.name = "Hilda";
        model.lastname = "Sparre";
        model.storytitle = "The Road Back to Greatness";
        model.storytext = "You are a noblewoman, part of Sweden's most ancient nobility, but the reign of Charles XI had come with ever diminishing power and privilege. Conspiring to take back what was lost, you instead found yourself on the run from a death sentence. With nowhere else to go and hunted by the state, you fled to the New World.";
        model.playertype = PLAYER_TYPE_REBEL;
        model.difficulty = DIFFICULTY_MARINER;
        model.Flags.Pirate = 19;
        model.Flags.Personal = 31;
        model.ship = "Lugger1";
        model.shipname = "Robber Queen";
        model.date.hour = 7;
        model.date.day = 24;
        model.date.month = 10;
        model.date.year = 1674;
        AddCharacterModel(model);

    I've tried the log changes out and it seems to work fine, but maybe best have a quick look at it before, I don't trust myself :p

    Have you tested that to make sure that it does change the log entry and weapons for Hilda, and does not change them for anyone else? It looks alright, though.

    Sparre and Hilda Sparre. Interesting,

    1) I found Hilda Sparre. It's a photo taken 1932
    at Gunnebo castle outside Gotheburg. Hilda to the left.

    2) I have made some genealogical research the last year and I 've got some of those Sparre in my tree.

    Doing a bit of research of my own:

    A Google Image search for "Hilda Sparre" shows quite a few black and white photos, probably the same person as the one in @Jack Rackham's photo. A search for name "Hilda Sparre" turns up a few hits, some dating back to the 19th century but none even far enough back to our "Napoleonic" period, let alone the periods in which we're allowing Sweden. However, they must have had ancestors...

    "Sparre" literally translates to "chevron". The coat of arms associated with that branch of the family tree is indeed a chevron, red on yellow. Other results, perhaps more Swedish looking, include yellow on blue, including this with a French connection - and bear in mind that "HildaPiratess" is on the run from France:
    Sparre (France)-History heraldry, coat of arms, genealogy,
    Which means if Hilda Sparre gets a storyline, she can also have a new personal flag...

    Turns out changing flags doesn't rerun the part of the code Ive written so it's a bit more work to turn it off when changing from Sweden. Nothing impossible, but I'm sick of that function so that's for later :p storyline it is!

    That's awesome xD I didnt have any real person in mind when choosing the name, so it's cool to see it's been used in the family, even if much later

    Yeah, the Sparre family actually took their name from their old heraldic shield which had a chevron xD they're part of swedens uradel as they're called, meaning nobility with medieval origins which is why Hilda feels she deserves a larger part of the wealth and power of the realm than the, as she sees it, new plebian nobles and lower classes :p

    the family with the red and yellow shield died out earlier, and the line that was still alive in sweden, from which the french branch was establish at pretty much exactly the same time as the era we've placed Hilda in, even had a yellow on blue design much like the french one! everything is falling in place xD A source in swedish with some pictures and one in english that's pretty much just a namelist, but it has a picture of the shield at least

    A personal flag is a fun idea! Getting on it asap :cheers

    maybe this should be in the piratess thread :eek:
