Actor Translations don't persist via game saves

Post by bLUEbYTE »

Actor translations don't persist across game sessions via game saves. Is this a bug or intended behaviour?

If it's intended (maybe for save game size reasons), then if you could tell me whether it's possible to accomplish in zscript I will post in that subforum.

This is definitely an oversight.

I am happy to hear that! This will mean that my mod's alterations on actors should fully persist between save games when it's fixed.

Thank you Graf.

This one turned out to be a lot more work than anticipated. I had to do some major refactoring first to allow saving these translations.

Much appreciated.

I will test this in the next release and report back any issues here.

This is hardly surprising, considering that nothing has been done to the serialization code yet. It still just writes out the translation ID as before.
