Player-Glasses overwriting loadout
Feedback, NormalPublic


The glasses a player can set in the "Player-Profile-Options" in the main menu are overwriting given loadouts.

That means, when building a multiplayer scenario, everyone will get their own glasses set in their own profile, instead of the ones chosen for their loadout.
This also applies if the player has NONE selected. The glasses from the loadout will just be removed and the player will not have any glasses.

A feature to disable this option for specific units would be great. Removing it is not making much sense, as the possibility to customize your character is wanted.

Would just be neat if it's possible to disable it if needed, as it looks horrible when you're making a fitting loadout and then there's this one guy with his yellow hipster-glasses 😉 😆


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Eden Editor
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Open player-editor in main menu (top right profile name)
  2. Choose glasses for yourself
  3. Open Eden Editor and edit a scenario (multiplayer)
  4. Place any unit and choose any glasses for the given unit
  5. Play scenario
  6. Glasses will be changed to the ones selected in the main menu

Works. Can be closed.

Not sure if I should open a new ticket for this or not, but the new feature doesn't appear to work fully.

AllowProfileGlasses = 0; seems to behave differently between hosted-multiplayer and dedicated server environments. I tested on both stable and profiling branches without mods. In hosted or editor multiplayer the facewear that I spawn with is from the mission's unit loadout. On my dedicated server I spawn with absolutely no facewear.

Tested with the following mission:
