Name used to be in the game, now it is not.
« on: October 21, 2018, 01:09:14 PM »

I noticed a couple of alphas ago that my name and backstory seemingly disappeared from the game, and its still not back despite RimWorld now being in full release. I don't show up in the 'Add Name' list in the options screen anymore, and my current selection (from back when I was present in the game) now has an '[N]' at the end, and she never shows up.

Is this a known issue? It's kind of upsetting seeing I've somehow been dropped.

Exactly the same has happened to mine.

What does the [N] mean? My name is in the game but I have yet to see the character in game.

I've no idea what the [N] means, probably 'non-existent' or something.

I'm hesitant to delete the entry because at this point I can never get it back.

I read that there's a master list of names that gets added in every update, but its clearly missing names, or names have somehow been lost from it.

I'm aware of two extensions: N and B
Of these the meaning is simple:

N --> Tier: Name In Game
B --> Tier: Backstory In Game

If you DON'T find a fitting entry THEN the name is not in the database. 8)

I bought the backstory tier years ago, so it should be a B in that case.

I noticed some people like "Keneuke" started missing. Also Tail! Hello, big fan. You have been a part of countless campaigns I have had. *sniff* it's like you were always a part of my colony adventures!

Have a good day Tail, in my opinion you're cooler than Lumi but she'll never find out so it's all good.
