How to replace dinos

To replace dinos with other dinos:

  1. The tag [/script/shootergame.shootergamemode] must always be first
  2. Set the “Replace command
NPCReplacements=(FromClassName="MegaRaptor_Character_BP_C",ToClassName="Dodo_Character_BP_C")

FromClassName is the dino character you want to replace!
ToClassName is the class it should be.

This is what a finished entry should look like:

[/script/shootergame.shootergamemode]
NPCReplacements=(FromClassName="MegaRaptor_Character_BP_C",ToClassName="Dodo_Character_BP_C")

Note In this example, the spawn position of the MegaRaptor (Alpha) is replaced with the spawn positions of Dodos.
