I am working on creating a unique race, it has two versions that function nearly identically.

Both have a racial special called, Dragon Breed. I want to use the same Racial Specials for both races.

But, the default is a 1:1 selection, on the Race tab, there is no option to enter in a tag or unique id list for the chooser. I have been searching for the field internally that would allow this. But I cannot find it. I have searched through selection fields for both RACE and the name of the Race (rMLPBabydr).

Not sure where else I can look.
-----
I also have a question about the Racial Special controlling breath weapons for dragons (raBreath). Is that a universal ability available with the free source. I cannot find any source information.

I am trying to set the Breath Weapon on the race by the choice that the user makes about its breed. This is easy for me when it comes to straight fields, but less straight forward when it comes to values set by tags. Such as the Energy Type shape and Usage. Further complicated that this race has three different age categories and several feats that alter how the breath works.

My question is how can I grab the tag from the racial choice and then shove it into the weapon and into the raBreath.

NEVERMIND --- Also, how can I alter the frequency, the raBreath does not say where that is set, 2 times per day for example as opposed to once every 1d4 rounds. ---- NEVERMIND.

I am sorry if this is a complicated question. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Selection is controlled by the AllowRCust.? tag group on the "Racial Cust Special". Simply add a 2nd AllowRCust.? tag to your "Racial Cust Special" with the unique id of your 2nd race.

You will need to pull/push and change any tags on the Breath Weapon racial ability.

Here are some examples of working with tags:
Code:
~ Cold Damage!
perform hero.childfound[raBreath].assign[wType.Cold]
Here we have a chooser on say a feat for selecting elemental damage:
Code:
      ~ If nothing chosen get out now
      doneif (field[usrChosen1].ischosen <> 1)

      ~ pull the Blood Energy tag and convert it to wType.? damage tag
      perform field[usrChosen1].chosen.pulltags[BloodEner.?,wType]
 
      ~ Now push the new wType damage to the Breath weapon pick
      perform hero.childfound[raBreath].pushtags[wType.?]
For other examples see the HL Wiki.
