Player data management

We have not saved the actual data representing the customization of our player. The next step is to enhance our PlayerCharacter.cs and BarbarianCharacterCustomization.cs scripts to actually save the selected data in our PC object.

using System;
namespace com.noorcon.rpg2e
public class PlayerCharacter : BaseCharacter
public enum ShoulderPad
none = 0,
SP01 = 1,
SP02 = 2,
SP03 = 3,
SP04 = 4
public enum BodyType { normal = 1, BT01 = 2, BT02 = 3
// Shoulder Pad
public ShoulderPad selectedShoulderPad = ShoulderPad.none;
public BodyType selectedBodyType = BodyType.normal;
public bool kneePad = false;
public bool legPlate = false;
public enum WeaponType
none = 0,
axe1 = 1,
axe2 = 2,
club1 = 3,
club2 = 4,
falchion = 5,
gladius = 6,
