I created 2 custom items in 4.3.7 (fresh install), one based off of
Rations (named "Snake Jerky"....Don't ask.) and the other based off
the standard potion (named "Potion (Unknown / 0001)").
Neither of these items end up in the custom sources area, but they are
listed in the player's inventory. I did check the checkbox in the
preferences to have custom equipment saved.
Also, and possibly related....
After selecting the gear, I switched to the equipping tab and it did
not redraw right (hardly at all really). If I resized the windows and
panes, then I could eventually see everything, but there were
equipment items that were not listed with a name in the left hand
pane. I tracked some of them down to things like Water and WaterSkin,
but they were also listed (I tracked them down based on the
discription in the bottom pane). The custom equipment did show up OK
in the equipping tab (once the equipment was listed right).
I've been through this about 8 times trying different things and it
always behaves the same. I've done the same thing with a different
character and had no problems.
The problem character does have more than the others had (equipment
wise), but only about 40 different items (and up to 25 of each
individual type...i.e. 25 rations).
Thanks in advance, and character available upon request.
