General quality of life
A couple more general QoL changes are coming in next week:
Modular cars take 4x as long to decay by default
7 on hotbar now holsters whatever you’re holding
If a belt item is equipped when opening the inventory that item will be automatically selected
Tweaked ore/wood gather tea bonus calculation to give a consistent amount of resources for each node (very subtle number rounding)
Some big improvements to the Night Vision Goggles made their way in to staging this week!
