Hack for Creating Duplicate Characters!

I found a hack I think the community should know.
Say, you allow the reader to customize their character, and you want to do a mirror scene. Everybody knows the long stressful coding it will take.
There is an easier way.

Say you decided to let the reader customize their character. MC, and you want to make a duplicate character, MCMIRROR. After the reader customizes the MC, place MCMIRROR offscreen, and put this command

@MCMIRROR becomes MC

This simple, one-line dialogue will solve all of your troubles. If you want to create a mother character, you could include hair and face changing lines afterward, like:
@MOM becomes MC
@MOM changes hair into Morning Updo

Hope this eased anyone’s struggles!

I had no idea about this. :drooling_face:
Do you know if it works for all the styles or is it just a LL feature?

I’m not sure. I tried it for Limelight. @Apes?

Of course! This will save time for many users :smiley: Thank you so much for sharing! :heart:

It works for INK too! And even if you use normal customisation, I just test it!

Sorry to bother you, @Apes, but I have one question about this:
If I were to use this hack like this:
@GIRL becomes BOY

What would happen?
