1. Make a new save, then close the game.
2. Go to the saves location.
3. Open the old save in Notepad or similar.
4. Search for "<thing Class="Pawn">" until you find <def>human</def>, and below that, the name of your colonists.
5. Copy the entire thing relating to your colonist, between the "<thing Class="Pawn">" and "</thing>".
6. Open your new save the same way in Notepad, and find the corresponding section of colonists in that one. Then replace that section in the new save with the stuff you copied from your old save.
7. There you go, old colonists in new save!

You absolutely can. Copy then from the old rws file to the new one.

Find the save in question. Search for one of your colonists names until you find their "Thing" data. Everything from <thing Class="Pawn"> to </thing> is every scrap of info on your character.

just for the record this did work.

Sidenote: I copied the code for the <pos>"__,__,__"</pos> from the pawns in the new save. I was loading on a mountainous map and wanted to make sure it didn't load any of the pawns inside a mountain.

there is a mod called "save our spaceship". Basically it let you bring the whole the spaceship along with all the colonists you sent away with to a new planet.

Update
- Search for:
MyColonistLastName</last> </name> <mindState>
- To avoid insomnia find line canSleepTick and set to 0: <canSleepTick>0</canSleepTick>
- Also set to 0: canLovinTick, applyThroneThoughtsTick, nextApparelOptimizeTick
- Paste entire thing XML into new save.
- Load new save.
- Optional, Install Copyprint and right click on item to save buildings to file.
