Is there a way to spawn a Custom npc(BehavEd scripts) with the 'npc spawn' code?
As well as not replacing any of the normal npcs?

Well... yes and no. You can spawn new characters by adding the characters to the NPCS.CFG file.... but for some reason the game doesn't particularly like you doing that and the characters come out with their blaster growing out their groin or other such oddities. The only good way to get a custom skin in the game is to replace an existing skin, as far as I've seen, until someone figures out how to get a lot deeper in the game or Raven decides to release more source code... which probably won't happen very soon.

You can craft a spawn script... unfortunately I do not know how to do this. My similarly themed thread was ignored some time ago.

Yeah, I looked into this and if anyone knows how to do it, they haven't written it down here or just about anywhere else I could think to look. Either people say you can't do it or they say you can but don't say how.
