    sorry to pop the hopeful bubble
    Custom faction support is coming in the next patch.
    but this didn't happen, yes we can have "Custom Families" so we still have to put our custom characters in the Epic made Factions.
    I think this is down to the way the factions are displayed in the character selection screen which is actually a map(UTFrontEnd.ut3) which selects the arena(background) via kismet and a lot of code.

    so maybe next time

    "In Hand" by the Epic guys

    You'd have to wait for the patch first.
    It probably will be done the same way they manage to add the male- and female-classes in one faction.
    I wouldn't recommend it though as it makes it difficult to search for the right model/character if you have to scroll through dozens of characters when you could find them faster if they were grouped into factions of similar characters (like a rodent-faction for mutant mice and rats for example).

    My guess is that Epic will do like they did back in the UT99 days, I think they will release a patch that will contain custom characters within in. Like the Skarj, Nali, WarCow and Xan, that will actually show us how it has to be done, how to setup the folders, textures and inis, etc.

    The other thing I would be really grateful to have is the animation .bip files if there are any. Considering the amount of animation sequences (over 200?) and the complexity of positioning the hands at the right spot for the weapons, the bip files are a great help to make characters with custom skeletons.

When I start Unreal to create my own character, my head and textures work PERFECTLY.

    However.... once I actually start a game, It looks like the engine cant find my textures and the head is completely white. does anyone know what the deal is?
    Everyone making custom chars is having this issue in some way shape or form.

    visit this thread: http://utforums.epicgames.com/showth...582817&page=49

    it'll answer a lot of questions, prepare for a lengthy read.

    Not to sound ungrateful but I was a little disappointed by the lack of custom character tutorials on Collector's Edition. The level designers got all the goods this time around.

    Agree completely, thats the eason I bought the collectors edition.
