Hi, I've been playing with a friend, I'm on steam and he's on xbox gamepass.
We connect to each other through the peer-to-peer system, and have been playing for around a week or so, and last night, I got my 6th death at around day 36.
Because of this I obviously got the xp penalty, and thought nothing of it, until I noticed that the bar was barely going down as I was doing mission after mission at my tier 3 trader.
So I checked my player stats, and it said it needed around five hundred and sixty-eight (568) MILLION xp for me to get to the next level, when I was only level ~36 (I don't host the world so I can't check for specificity)
I went onto the wiki to make sure it was true or not, and it very much so is not, and I have no clue what could have caused this, we've modded it, but this only started after I died.
Is it maybe because my friend has upwards of 70 deaths and the game is wanting to balance my xp gain with his? We thought this, so we used the givexp cheat to get me out of debt, and the next level requires the same amount of xp (ish, a few million more for the scaling between levels)
I've just launched a fresh game solo, and it says I only need around 10k to get to level 2 (I killed a few zombies off spawn out of habit XD)
If there is a fix I would love that, but if not, we'll just turn on the multiple profiles setting, cheat in all the books I got, transfer my loot and give xp to me again to get back to my level
Here is the required pastebin, not sure if I got the right log though, I just did my most recent one (before I launched a new game to test)
Kind regards, Klaziks (She/They)
