"Save Outfit" feature in tailor appears broken

Howdie,

Following season 14 update, the "save outfit" feature in the tailor appears to be broken. Old costumes (made prior to today's patch) can be loaded but saving appears to do nothing in-game. In the screenshot folder, a costume file is being made but for whatever reason it's not usable in STO.

I tested with multiple player characters and bridge officers in the ground tailor. I also tested with the ship tailor (same issue). I troubleshooted by relogging, restarting, and force-verifying STO.

For context: I use the save costume feature on pretty much a daily basis while playing STO. So, I'm greatly looking forward to a resolution. :)

    Same problem here. I can change a costume and wear it, but the save function, that adds a new pictures under the costume files to sellect from after clicking the save button, no longer adds a new file/picture to choose from later.

    Yep, since patch I cannot save any new outfits - across all my characters.

    the tag line attatched to the file is missing, so the game doesnt have any idea what to do with the image in your screenshots folder.
    a temporary work around however may be usefull.

    this will alow you to load a character and resave it under different specifications, then you download it and move it to your screenshots folder under your star trek online game folder.

    I just tried playing around with tags and that import tool. Replicating what's listed in the properties window for pre-bug tailor files didn't fix it. Either I'm missing something or there's still more at work here.

    And for general update: Kael did acknowledge the "save outfit - broken" bug during today's Ten Forward stream. The devs are aware and are working on it (hopefully fix coming soon.)

    when I save outfits...in the folder in the sto directory, new images and other files appear, yet in the load outfit screen, the newly saved outfit is not present.

    so its saving them, its just not displaying them.

    I just checked this out. I found several files that were made just a few hours ago that correspond to the costumes I tried to save a few hours ago.

    so, the game IS saving them, its just flat out refusing to read them.

    The tags aren't missing exactly. But there's likely a formatting error in the metadata that's preventing the tags from being read. I've compared my old and new files in a text editor, and I think the error is likely around the part that says "Photoshop 3.0 8BIM", which appears before the tags.

    third day, third patch in a row incoming, and yet still no fix on the tailor.

    I'm having the same issue! Thought I was the only one. I asked around and it's a 50-50 split on who has the issue. So a lot of people have this. I'm a big tailor guy, and this glitch sucks.

    Then it's different for different people because I have zero tags on saved tailor jpegs since the season patch, and manually tagging them with the same copy&pasted tags from tailor jpegs saved before the patch do not correct the problem.

    I've also got this bug, with Costume Tailor and Ship Tailor.

    I don't change my ship as often as I do my uniform so I did not notice this. I'll have to confirm next time I'm in game.

    Can confirm, saving works fine, its loading where it is broken.

    I did mention all this in the OP (but it's good to have confirmation that this doesn't appear to be a system specific issue)... :tongue:

    Actually, you have it backwards.

    The LOADING works fine, but the SAVING does not.

    What I mean: anything that was saved before 10/3 loads fine. That means the loading works correctly.

    However anything that was saved after 10/3 does not work. That means there is an error in the SAVING process.

    So you are wrong: the SAVING does not work, but the LOADING does.
  • tunicate515#4416 tunicate515 Member Posts: 30 Arc User
    PS: yes, I know it still creates a file in your screenshots folder when you save. But there is something wrong with the files it is creating after 10/3. Hence the problem is still in the SAVING side, not the loading side.

    so, the question becomes..how to fix it..
