Data storage in Citizens2 is handled in one of two ways: YAML flatfile, or a SQL database.

Saves.yml

Saves.yml is used by default to store all data on created NPCs.

  '0':
   name: My_First_NPC
   traits:
     spawned: true
     type: PLAYER
     owner: Steve
     location:
       world: world
       x: '92.65002360423462'
       y: '3.0'
       z: '-264.5621058817138'

       pitch: '21.14999008178711'

Database

Database usage can be configured inside of the config.yml. Database usage requires more setup, but runs quicker when dealing with large numbers of NPCs.

Configuration

A quote from the config.yml (mouseover to view info):
