Player unit retains character profile cosmetic settings
Closed, ResolvedPublic


All cosmetic setting preferences chosen for a player profile is retained in a single player/mission editor setting.

This can be immersion breaking, seeing a pasty red-head with diver goggles behaving as a legitimate member of the Iranian military. This can also place unwanted items in a players inventory (like tactical glasses, for instance).

Steps To Reproduce

Make a noticeable profile character, and make several editor playthroughs through every faction once. To paraphrase from user AD2001, it seems that the player character's faction does not override profile settings.

It's because you picked tactical glasses in the profile menu.

A faction should override the profile settings.

Ah! And you are correct! It even retains the facial features as well. Would be very odd to see a person of Chinese descent as an Iranian combatant. I will again update this ticket, thanks to your clarification!

Mass closing ancient tickets with no activity for > 12 months; assume fixed or too trivial.

If this issue is still relevant in current dev build, please re-post.
