I'm trying to play the current experimental version (0.1.17 / build 101256) offline / without running the epic launcher. Upon loading a save the game prompts me to start a 'a new offline session' - if i do, i spawn as a new player, with a duplicate player appearing in my original postion.

This has happened in earlier versions of the game, but was fixed 0.1.12. Is anybody encountering similar issues trying to save/load games in offline mode? Is this intended?

That issue has never been fixed or looked in to it.

The requirement of having Epic launcher connected to internet might not be sorted till Final full game version.

As i've stated this had already been fixed in 0.1.12, with the game assinging a machine-unique ID to the player, along with deleting disconnected/inactive players in private sessions (see patch notes). This meant that you would return to your prior player character upon loading a saved game, instead of starting off as a new player.

This worked fine up until 0.1.15. Starting with 0.1.16 this behaviour reverted to assigning random numbers to players and creating duplicates.

I wouldn't have bothered to report this if this hadn't already been fixed in prior versions.
