    Is it standard not to be able to customize your portraits in any way with this mod?

    Also, when I first started a new campaign sandbox (clean install of 1.1 plus this mod), all the icons in the skill tree showed up fine, but when I load a save game, or start a new campaign, now half the icons are missing for some reason. there is just an empty box where the icon should be.

    I saw the same happen with some youtubers that had tried the most recent version of the mod.

    some conflict with old files maybe?

      What do you mean by customize.

      The icons we know about HBS changed a lot of stuff including the way it loads those pics.

      "What do you mean by customize."

      meaning, any changes you try to make to your portrait do not show up at all while you are trying to use the customizer.

      "The icons we know about HBS changed a lot of stuff including the way it loads those pics. "

      righto.

      cheers.

      Are you trying to modify a custom face, or a portrait?

      Because weve seen several streams of it working just fine

      1. start new game
      2. go through character creation
      3. pick a portrait
      4. try to customize portrait
      5. I can select things... but they do not show up on the portrait image when I select them. not clothing options, not hair, not scars... nothing.

      again, this is a totally clean install. everything else seems to be working correctly.

      edit:

      after starting the new game, if I then go into customizing the portrait while on the Argos... the portrait I selected at character creation is swapped with a random other portrait (in fact, it swaps to a random portrait EVERY time I select the customize option). In the last attempt, it swaps a female portrait for a male one. However, in THAT mode (already on the Argos), modifications DO show up when i select them.

      that might explain why you thought you saw it working correctly on vid streams... they were customizing in game portraits, not portraits on character creation.

      to test:
      1. Go to barracks.
      2. select commander
      3. click customize
      4. portrait and voice are now randomly chosen.
      5. click "cancel changes"
      6. click customize again
      7. again, portrait and voice are randomly chosen
      8. go ahead and accept whatever random portrait is chosen, reselect voice, make changes to face, save.
      9. click customize again
      10. portrait stays, voice is chosen randomly. In fact, voices are not sticking for me at all. save or no save. I appear stuck with the same female voice on my character.

      sorry, but whatever you saw in the streams, this is NOT working correctly.

      edit: The portrait of one of the mechpilots I started with changed from female to male when i started my first mission.

      I mean, I get genderfluid... but that's a bit random. Oh, she also lost her voice.

      reporting as official bug now.

      here's the pastebin link to the error log for the "commander portrait loader" mod:

      https://pastebin.com/3yLkCctr

      the errors check with what I am seeing in game.

      errors are entirely random. sometimes portrait will load, sometimes not, sometimes I get a random portrait.

      Character portrait loader does not support customization of a 3d rendered commander, if you dont intent to use the png commanders, please remove commander protrait loader

      why is it included in the mod package then?

      grr.

      also doesn't explain why the other character portraits were getting messed up.

      sooooo buggy :(

      think I'll wait another 6months and see what it looks like then.

      People like you don't deserve mods.

      Thank you ArvenHadrien

      Too many people think we have to make it all just for them or that "modding is a service"

      I know since I do mods for free I do it for me first, if its something I think others would like Ill share it. Im somewhat tempted to find a png of jeff "joker" moreau and replace jester with since he amuses me almost as much.

      LOL you people are morons.

      I've been writing mods for games since before Nexus even existed.

      you come across as egotistical brats who don't want to take ANY responsibility for the work you put out.

      will be making sure others know as well.

      ta.

      Back in my day we walked 5000 miles to school with no shoes, and we liked it! We drank rabbit milk for sustenance and when we wanted to call someone we yelled their name into a hard southerly wind!

      I know you're banned, but maybe you'll continue acting like a child and mosey back here with a different profile - there's no issue with you pointing out issues, it's when you point out issues like an entitled brat. We know the mod has bugs. The authors know it has bugs. They've rolled out loads of updates in the last few weeks. If you've been making mods since the Dark Ages, then you should understand the value of offering your feedback with a degree of etiquette, you pooplicker.

      Also why should we be forced to take any responsability, this mod is free, use it if you like or dont if you do not. What do i care? Its also not my fault you use a mod pack with a mod in it that doesnt suit you ^^

      Oh also please make sure to spread the word, that we dont want entitled user downlaoding our mod, that would be very helpfull.
