Character has been reset

Post by Bloomy4217 »

In a world I and my significant other have been working on for a while my character reset. I loaded up it told me the objective, my character was green (instead of yellow) and I had the starting resources. I am the host of the world. I initially thought that it was due to linking my account to steam as the game told me to do so when joining someones world even though it hasn't needed it before, but logging out this still happens. For some reason when I load the game up in single player I have my stuff as usual. I would like to know if there is a way to fix this, thanks.

Most likely this is something really simple like you were using other player name before. Easiest option is to open console, type

Code: Select all

/players
to find what player names were used in that save file. If you find your old player name, you do

Code: Select all

/swap-players <your-old-player-name>
and you will be put back into control of the character you had before.

Thank you for the help. It did consider me as a new player because of the account setup thing and didn't change back after logging out. The command worked and got me back into my old character.
