Welcome to this post We’ll discuss the Roots of Pacha – How to change character appearance and Save File in this post, and we sincerely hope you find it helpful.

A quick guide to changing your character’s appearance, this guide also includes how to locate a folder (save file) and add custom colors in the game.

Finding Your Save Files

Your save files are in “C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\LocalLow\Soda Den\Roots of Pacha\saves”. You can get here by:

  • Press ‘Windows + R key’
  • Type in ‘%APPDATA%\..\LocalLow’ without the quotes
  • Navigate through the folders ‘Soda Den > Roots of Pacha > Saves’

Within this folder is another folder named a series of numbers; within this is your character folders. Before proceeding further, I recommend making a backup copy as you won’t be able to identify which character corresponds with which folder name, so let’s skip directly ahead to the next section and just pick at random!

Changing Your Appearance

Inside the character folders are three files:

  • header.json
  • save.json
  • save-prev.json (might be missing if you’re on the first couple days)

We’re here for the save.json file. Open this up with your text editor of choice. Don’t get overwhelmed by all the text, JSON files are visually messy like that. Press CTRL+F and type in ‘body’ without the quotes and press enter if it hasn’t already found something. You should be looking at something like this:

Here’s how you can identify multiple characters if you were uncertain which one you were editing: to the left of ‘Body’ value is your character’s name (mine is TestMan). If this doesn’t correspond with who you want to edit, open another save.json file until you locate it.

Modifying these values isn’t always straightforward. In the example above, TestMan’s body indicates as being 0, but when creating characters within-game it actually represents 1. To simplify things further I suggest creating another character with desired appearance and use their save file to edit your existing one.

So for instance, I want to change my character’s body type:

  • Make a new character that has the body type I want
  • Play through the game until it saves (you can immediately jump into bed once you get control of your character)
  • Close the game and open both this new character’s save file, and my old one
  • Notice that my new character has a ‘Body’ value of 1
  • Go to your old character, find the ‘Body’ value and change it to 1

You could also copy/paste the entire appearance section at once if you feel comfortable doing that. I’d recommend manually changing the values around since there’s a big chance of messing up the file’s formatting by copy/pasting large sections.

Don’t forget to save your file after editing it, by the way.

Custom Colours

You might have noticed the colour values aren’t singular, but 4 seperate numbers. These are RGBA values, and you can edit them to any colour you want!

The values are, from left to right:

  • Red
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Alpha (or transparency)

You can edit these values to make custom colours for your character. You can find RGBA colour pickers online to figure out what numbers to use for the colour you want. Just keep in mind that normal RGB uses values from 0 to 255, but these save files use RGB 0-1 where the values range from 0 to 1. Make sure to use a colour picker that reflects that.
