Lack of Character Continuity when Loading Saved Game

Post by Bullethead » Mon Dec 31, 2018 9:08 pm

----------------------------
Bug Report
----------------------------
OS: Windows 7-64 SP1
Game Version: Beta 20.3
Date and Time Encountered (31/12/2018 1850 US CDT (GMT -6)) and all previous loads of saved games over the last couple of days (which is as long as I've had the game)
----------------------------
Possible Conflicting Software: Unknown
Severity: Irksome
Description of Bug: 2 problems here. #1, PLAYING BY MYSELF, as a robot or Sylvassi. When loading a saved game file, my character always defaults back to being human on game load, so I have to go to the customize menu to change back to being a robot of Sylvassi. #2. It's impossible to change back to being a robot initially. You must first change to Sylvassi first. Only after doing that is it possible to select the robot race.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a game as a robot.
2. Save the game.
3. Quit the game.
4. Restart the game and load the saved game.
5. When you choose your class, you will be a human.
6. Click on "Change Appearance/Race"
7. Click on Robot. Nothing happens.
8. Click on Sylvassi. This works.
9. Click on Robot again. Now this works.

Possible Workaround: None that I'm aware of.

----------------------------
Screenshots and/or Video: No got.
----------------------------
Notes: Just irksome. Not game-breaking.
----------------------------
Hardware Configuration:

CPU: Intel i7-2600K nominal 3.4 GHz overclocked to 3.7 GHz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 980
RAM: 8 GB Ballistix 1600
Motherboard: Don't make me reboot to answer this question. It's 8 years old, same as the CPU.
HDD: Hitachi HDS723020BLA642, 1 TB
SSD: None

Thanks for the report Bullethead!

I've done a few tests to try and replicate the problem and from what I can see the bug appears to be related to the preview character, not the actual selected one. The game seems to know you're currently playing a robot which is why it doesn't let you select it.

We'll look into the issue on our end and try to get the preview properly updated.

In the meantime, if you are always playing as a robot, you can feel free to ignore the character preview and join the game. You should be a robot (quickly confirmed by looking down at your body).

Thanks again for the report!

OK, more of a confusion factor than an actual bug. I'm sure you all will iron it out when time permits :)
