After my client updated from b231 to b233, i can no longer join a dedicated server that i was playing approxh 10+ hours since A20 went to Experimental.
When joining the server, at the stage of Creating Character, console shows me NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
In the log file more detailed

Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:
Validated the server and client. Same error on joining. Re-downloaded client and server files from scratch. Same error.
Checked same map file locally - works fine. Loaded into several other dedicated servers - works fine.
Changed Player Profile to a new, empty one. Same error on joining.
Cleared game data trough launcher (before updating to Experimental AND after seeing this issue). Same error.
Manually removed 7DTD folder from my Windows profile so the game would recreate it. Same error.
Other player (using Proton on Linux) can join server without an issue. Will attempt to check if another Windows player can join the server.
Actual result: loading to dedicated server stops with an error above
Expected result: load to this specific dedicated server.
