disregard every thing i am about to say. i went into character select, and pressed E instead of mouse 1, and it loaded up properly. still would be nice to know why this happened tho.
i created a new character to see if there had been any changes to the character creator in the update. i deleted the character, then selected my main character. when i loaded into the world, all me equipment and skills were gone. any explanation as to why this happened or any fixes?
