  • It's now possible to use an elevator while carrying a body.

  • Improved the Crafting system, so that items with Random quality scale their quality with player's Crafting skill.
  • Adjusted the damaging process when shooting crowd NPCs while in combat depending on distance and the weapon used.

Players will also no longer be troubled by the following bugs:

  • Fixed an issue where crafting specs from clothing stores were available only during the first visit to a vendor.
