Gameplay settings on Single-Player doesn't stick if there is a "Server Settings" value somewhere else

Game mode: [Single-player]
Type of issue: [Bug]
Server type: [PvE]
Region: [Americas]

Prior to Isle of Siptah expansion changes, there was a Gameplay adjustment for Nudity (that allowed a selection of options that would save when resuming Gameplay). This could be set at the game level prior to launching a Singe-Player session in the main menu. All of this functionality in the menus still exists, but it gets overwritten.

Note: all mods have been turned off for confirmation testing.

Scenario 1:

  1. Change the Gameplay setting in the main menu.
  2. Return to the main menu to save changes. (Testing to see if the changes will stay).
  3. Exiting the application.
  4. Wait a minute (prefer Steam errors).
  5. Restart application and check the settings. They should show the configured value (other than None).
  6. Launch single-player game.
  7. Check the to see if settings are active by looking around in game world.
  8. Check the Gameplay settings, the configured value will show the previously specified value (other than None). Yet below that the statement will read: “Maximum nudity on the server: None”
  9. Hit the Back button, and then Resume button.
  10. Then, go back into the Gameplay menu and check the settings again. The configuration value will match the server setting of “None”.

Scenario 2:

  1. Setting in the main menu and then launching game.
  2. Checking the Gameplay settings once in game will show the same specifications.
  3. Next go to resume the game and re-check, the value will have been changed.
    Note the statement below the configuration on application launch read: “Maximum nudity on the server: Full.”

Scenario 3:

  1. Changing the setting in-game will not save at all, after leaving the Gameplay menu.

Notes and findings:

Possible cause, there is default value that is typically provided by a server that the Singeplayer game is still expecting, but without finding it will reset to the default value of: None.

Just below the configurable setting there is the statement: “Maximum nudity on the server: None.”

As a possible fix, changed the: DefaultServerSettings.ini
Manually set the configuration value in there.
Tested the file with and without read-only set.

Stumbled across an additional menu configurations, Settings / Server Settings - just below Tethering Distance. That combined with the Gameplay configuration makes it work.
