Issue: can't give NPC players custom weapons

Not a bug, but still... So far, I haven't found a way to give my NPCs weapons I want them to use.

go into the lockers before spawning AI and put the gear in there you want them to use - you can remove any +0 tools or weapons if you don't trust the AI but they're quite good about taking better stuff - then spawn them in.

You can keep AI appearance and equipment from being random by using the AI save function - this will make an AI save file for all roles

For some reason, in a game with real people, bots don't take guns from their lockers, IF THOSE GUNS WERE PREVOUSLY IN POSSESSION OF HUMAN PLAYERS. However, after I restart the game, bots take their guns normally.

It feels like it's bugged. I wish we had a way to give some equipment to bots and other players directly, not using lockers.

You can drop stuff from your inventory onto the ground (space allowing) by selecting the item tnen "Discard" ("Unequip" first if you have it on the hotbar). This won't help you with bots but real players it means you won't have to visit their locker.

I think I explicitly stated that my issue is with bots, not players.

I was implicitly stating playing with players would solve your issue but given your reply I can imagine crew chat on your ship. GL and HF.

Thanks for the reports

More control over bot equipment / weapons is on the list, hope to get it in soon!
