Issue #23423: Player created robot names revert to 'automatron'
I've seen this reported as a bug elsewhere after experiencing it. I can assign a name to an automatron when creating it but the name always reverts to 'automatron' afterwards. Because of this I always end up with all of my robots having the same name. It doesn't always happen immediately but I'm not sure what triggers it. For example I name a new robot "Provisioner 01" but it ends up being called "automatron" anyway. When upgrading at the robot workbench this is particularly annoying since they all say "Automatron" except for the vanilla NPCs.
I have read discussions of this happening globally after completing the Automatron main quest but for me it happened from the start.
Also, I'm not sure this is related, but when building a robot in the robot workbench if I don't rename it right away eventually trying to rename just renames the part I'm working on and not the robot itself.
I expected to see someone else reporting this here so perhaps it doesn't always happen? I have not started the "Reunions" quest.
