I want to make an ENEMY AI version of the doge mod, I've got a version I made that runs and gives no errors but I can't see if it works. When I go into quick battle they don't show up under the alien races, I must be doing something wrong but can anyone tell me how difficult this would be to do? I've got other ideas based off the doge mod so if someone could help me that would be AWESOME!
Thank you guys so much!

One idea I have is https://www.realm667.com/index.php/en/beastiary-mainmenu-136/744-rottweiler converting these sprites. Someone ( Captain Toenail) already made a rottweiler using sprites from wolf 3d as a base(where the original doge sprites are from), so this would be a cool asset!

Code: [Select]
raceWeights:
      4:
          STR_DOGE: 5
      6:
          STR_DOGE: 10
      7:
          STR_DOGE: 10
will lead to only dogs spawning as enemys.
But you need 8 members in any race to make deployments work. They can be the same dog though. Like
Code: [Select]
