Hello friends! A new mini release is ready for you to download.

This release fixes some important bugs and its a first step towards a better economy. It can be updated through the PSLauncher, but you can also download it fully, as you prefer from our Download page.

Here is the list of changes for 0.7.43:

A first step to improve the economy of the game. Weapons and Armors are now decaying with usage more consistently and evidently. Also harvesting and mining tools are decaying.
There is no difference anymore between the "Weapon Repair Kit" and the "Armor Repair Kit", there is one base kit called "Repair Kit" which can be used with both weapons and armors.
This base kit is reducing the max quality of the item. There is a more expense "Finest Repair Kit", which is available only from certain NPCs and only if you have enough faction score in line with the NPC faction. These kits will not reduce the max quality.
To repair a weapon or an armor you just right-click and then select the "repair" icon. The game will search your inventory for a stack of repair kits, with preference to the "Finest" ones. The repair operation will use as many kits as needed in that stack.
The number of repair kits needed is now proportional to the cost of the weapon. So expensive weapons will be more costly to repair.
The tools cannot be repaired, but high rank NPC will now sell higher quality tools, if you are faction aligned with them.
Please test these changes and let us know how it feels. This should increase the need of more purchases and crafting.

Added dig animation and sounds.
Fixed character creation choices to avoid crashes in case you misclick.
Prevented server crash in char creation if CP allowed are exceeded.
Fixed important bug on the damage calculations when a specific type of weapon hits a specific type of armor.
Fixed "statue" mode, basically certain NPC characters can look like statues, so not moving at all.
Fixed crash on books when titles exceed allowed length
A number of performance fixes to reduce database load
Small fix to character description window
