Holy crap...  this update to Titan icon lets you spawn npcs from the game AND let's you load your own costumes onto the npcs.  Essentially you can make a giant team photo with everyone on your team.  Combined with emotes, this turns Titan Icon into the ultimate photo taking experience.

Download
http://repo.cohtitan.com/icon/icon.exe

Wiki Page
http://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Titan_Icon
See this page for lots of useful extra information about how to load zones and spawn NPCs!

Source Code
http://repo.cohtitan.com/icon/icon-src-17.zip

Requirements
You must have either the latest Issue 23 (version 2320.201207182341.1) or Issue 24 (version 2400.201208211101.1) game client installed. The NCSoft launcher is not required. The Issue 24 client has more costume parts available and is recommended if you have it.

Instructions
  • Save icon.exe into your City of Heroes program folder. On a default install, this may be in C:\Program Files\City of Heroes, or C:\Program Files (x86)\City of Heroes on 64-bit systems. It should have a cityofheroes.exe file in it as well.

  • Use Explorer to browse to that folder, and double click icon.exe. You can create a shortcut to it if desired.



Version 1.7 - Released June 11, 2013
  • Icon now displays a message with its version number when first entering the game, to help you be sure that you're running the version you intend to.

  • Some of the residents of Paragon City thought that empty zones were boring, and decided to come hang out. This includes contacts, trainers, and any npc that's a "Persistent" NPC -- one that is hardcoded in the map data to always be present and not spawned conditionally by the server. If you want to return to the ghost town, you can use:

  • New command: /clear_npc
    Wipes all NPCs off the face of the map.

  • Known Issue: Some NPCs display a P-string for a name instead of their actual name. Unfortunately, the localized names for some of the NPCs are not present in the client files, as this is information that is normally sent by the server. If your favorite NPC is affected by this, feel free to use:

  • New command: /rename Name
    Changes the name of the targeted entity to what you specify after the command. May optionally be enclosed in quotes, but not required. If you don't have an NPC targeted, changes your own name.

  • New command: /load_costume Filename
    By popular demand, this command loads a costume from a .costume file. The file should be located in the "costumes" subfolder of your COH install -- this is the same one that is used for loading or saving costumes from the character creator. You should not include the .costume extension in the name, just use the name of the character that the costume was saved for.

    If you are targeting an NPC when you use this command, it will load the costume onto that target instead of yourself.

  • New command: /be_npc NPC_Name
    Ever wanted to know what it was like to be the Avatar of Hamidon? Type "/benpc Avatar_Hamidon" and find out! This takes the same type of NPC costume specification as the /spawn_npc command -- see the wiki page for links to a full list.

    You can also use this command while targeting an NPC to turn it into a different NPC.

  • Along with persistent NPCs, Icon now spawns all the doors that are referenced by zone maps. They are non-functional, but look better than empty spaces where they should be.

  • Fixed the /spawn_npc command to prevent a buffer overflow that could possibly crash the client if very long names are used.

  • Icon now includes the patch that allows the game client to load any files as overrides from data/. This should make loading custom maps, geobins, and other mods easier in the future.

  • New command: /access_level Number
    This command changes your client access level. Cheater.

    The default access level is 0. Higher access levels unlock many, many developer and debugging commands, which are outside the scope of this post. There are no commands that require higher than access level 9.

    Caution! These commands are intended for developer use, and many are not user-friendly. Several of them will crash your game client. Use this command at your own risk.

Can you use travel powers?  It sure would be nice to fly around Atlas Park again.

Ayup. Although getting people's sliders and minute details just right can be a pain...




Like I actually missed a few details there.

Well, if you want accuracy, you can always just ask for the original costume file from the players and load that up.

Come to think of it, we have costume files on record in the MA area...
