I don’t know how long she was in the water. But next time she’d better put some sunscreen on. This is dangerous and permanent damage can remain!


Greetings Exile,

Thank you for your report. By any chance, do you have access to the saved files from that server?

Can you also confirm that the server doesn’t have any mods installed?

We await your reply.

There are no mods and I can send the saved files.


Huh. That’s some serious sunburn.

Funcom can you offer a bottle of Stygian sunburn cream on the bazaar please? We can craft it using aloe?

(For a measly cost of $20)



Hi Dev,
I have this red skin issue while using a mod.
But the mod author confirmed it’s not “caused” by the mod, but rather “revealed” by it.
It’s a problem with texture loading sequence.
That’s proven seeing as other players having the same thing without mod.

Greetings @Pugilist,

Thank you for getting back to us.

Also, @demonado could you also share a saved file with us to help us identify the issue faster?

Please feel free to reach out to us in private to share the file if you prefer.

We really appreciate your support on this matter.

My assumption is that you would prefer a saved file from a game where the condition is active. If the saved from from the game in which this occured is sufficient, please let me know and I will DM it to you.

Otherwise, I will endeavor to recreate the situation prior to sending the file.


A saved file where the issue is still showing would be great. We’ll await your dm. :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance.

Hello Mayra,

In my case, a save file is unnecessary, because everytime you restart the game, it’s back to normal.
You can actually test it easily by yourself:

  1. download Devious Desires MOD from steam workshop
  2. play Single Player
  3. find a thrall, interact with him/her with the Devious Desires features by pressing Shift+H
  4. after that, let him/her follow
  5. they turn red

Have fun
