[Suggestion] Allow character renaming
Please, allow character renaming.
I thought the player's account name would appear and not the character's name. Now I'm stuck with silly names like "coop" and "solo" :-/

Awe that sucks bro. If incorporated, please make it so you can only change something like once per month :) Don't want to keep loosing track of players cause of their IGN haha!
It would be helpful to allow us to rename our characters so that we can tell them apart easier.
I've replaced my original character, which was badly assembled talents wise, and would like to delete him and then rename my new one with my normal main character name instead of Sacrifice 1 which he was intended to be... would be nice in general.. we can customise the suit colors etc after the fact, could add rename to those options.
I too would like the ability to rename my character. I have started 3 Characters that are high level now and would like to rename to to something that reflects their abilities. The only way to rename right now is to delete one of my characters and create a new one from scratch.
This would be very helpful as now it is hard to tell which of my players has the ability to make worm bows, scanners, extractors, etc.
Please let us to be able to change the name
You can now do this by going to C:\Users\~name~\AppData\Local\Icarus\Saved\PlayerData\[random numbers here] and then edit the "Characters.json" in note pad. You should of course always make a backup of the original just in case you accidently change something unintentionally.
It appears as if this was always intended, as the page/pencil indicator for me has always been there. GrimOxford is right but do you cannot ask certain people to make a manual change it is already beyond them as soon as you mentioned save a copy. I believe this intent is to allow it to be in game a tiny but to me a very low priority issue.
