Can someone explain the character files???

The mods people have released do not seem to match the instructions in the modding guide.

Modded files appear to just contain a string of comma delimited values, is this file REALLY based on position in the string, rather than the normal in other files string of values for each category?

I can see traits being assigned in the modded files but no skill adjustments.

I've searched the forum and can't find the thread where this is discussed, can someone post an example file with explanations? THANX!!!

You have not said what version or what expansion your running so here are the links to the modding guides.

Modding Guide for Distant Worlds: Shadows

Distant Worlds – Legends Modding Guide Is Released

I realize you have mentioned using one of these guides, these are the current versions, but the information within it explains quite clearly skills and traits and how to set them up with characters. Have a look in the DW root folder characters at the vanilla versions and then compare them to the mods, no difference except names and values.
