Where the movie ends, the true terror begins. In the frozen wastelands of Antarctica, a mysterious, shape-shifting alien life form has wiped out an American scientific outpost. You're the leader of a military rescue team sent to investigate the carnage. Trapped by the elements and infected by a horrific enemy, you must keep your squad together. Control their fear and gain their trust, and you might just survive the Thing.

The Thing : How to Swap Characters

Players Modelling Tutorial

* data > informs > .sgh files

rename and then replace the file you want for example

take npchead12.sgh and npchead12eyesclosed and npchead12eyesopen.sgh rename them headblake.sgh and headblakeeyesclosed.sgh and headblakeeyesopen.sgh then place back in informs folder and click replace blake originals

and you now can play as npchead12 ( forgot real name ) instead of blake ( face wise )

* keep back ups of originals so you won't have to re-install the game

* when renaming a file have it saved to desktop or else where then put back into the informs folder so nothing will be mixed up or cause name errors
