Starting September 7th, everyone will log in-game using their (main) account name. That's the name and password combination you use to log into the UCP. Since playable exported characters haven't been a thing for a while, this change is done in order to tighten account security and simplify the whole process for everyone. You'll be able to choose a character once you authenticate successfully. A couple key points:
Your main account name must meet the following criteria
- At least 3 characters long
- Max. 20 characters long
- Allowed characters are: 0-9, a-z, A-Z, , (), $ @ . _ and =
Your account password must be upgraded
I've recently tightened the security on user passwords, but you need to log into the UCP for them to take effect. If you are currently logged in and see a bright, red box atop of your screen when you visit the UCP, please relog and it should disappear.
Characters can't be switched mid-session
This feature isn't planned, mainly for security reasons.
So which password do I log into the server with?
There's only one password now - your account password. The one you use to sign into the UCP. Please consider Two Factor Authentication for additional security - it's super easy and reliable!
What about secret word?
We're ditching it. No more. If you want a second layer of protection to your account above passwords, please set up Two Factor Authentication
There'll be more work done on tidying up account security, as right now there's way too many security features and they aren't streamlined well. I'll explain that once we get there.
Please make sure you have access to your UCP account and no red boxes show up once you log in on the website, otherwise you might not be able to get in-game by Friday! If you have any issues with your account related to this change, please create a support ticket at support.ls-rp.io
