Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play with a toddler and load a save
What happens when the bug occurs? The character values my toddler has have all reset, he had fairly high manners when I exited my game last night, this afternoon when I've loaded it, it's all gone.
What do you expect to see? I expect my save to load with the character values he had on save and exit.

My poor baby, he had fairly high manners and now it's reset to default values.

Would you happen to have a save before they reset ?

Nope, sorry Crin, I'll make sure to save to a different save next time I exit though.

I had a similar thing happen to me as well. I loaded a save with a child who had maxed two character traits, and almost completed one other. When the save loaded, she had dropped her level drastically in all three character traits. Now I have to work to get them back up again Frown Seems to have happened only after the addition of Seasons.

I hope this bug is fixed soon! It'll be really hard to keep up with this in the meantime.

@FidgetyAtom Have you also never used mods ? Do you maybe still have a backup ?

@FaithofKaela Maybe one of the automatic backup ones are still working ? Did you try those ?

Yes. the game creates ver0 to ver4 of your saves. You can do recover saves on the load menu to recover those and try the older games. It saves those in circles so if you saved more than 4 times since, they have been overwritten.

I do currently have MC Command Center on my game. No, no backup here. Not that I know of anyway.
