We have a new round of bug fixes this week!
Fixed save-game player position corruption (VR):
Some VR players were getting their save-game corrupted. This could happen if you selected "restart at nearest station" while on a train. The game could then teleport away from the world and subsequently save this player position. The game could no longer load this position, effectively rendering the save-game corrupt. This is now fixed, and if you were affected, the game will now be able to fix your save-game and spawn you at tutorial depot.
Further NonVR inventory improvements:
You've surely at some point moved selection to an item, while already holding another item. Pressing Tab would then return your selection to original slot. This is now improved so that the game will auto-stash your current item to the first empty slot and automatically equip the newly selected one.
You may have noticed that with some items it's no longer possible to scroll through the inventory, because they use mouse wheel when equipped. This is now possible to override by holding Alt, which forces inventory scrolling.
Mouse-look can now be used in either toggle or hold modes, depending on how long you hold the Alt button pressed. Leaving the mouse-look range will now smoothly blend held item back into position.
These are the highlights for this update, but there are many more small fixes and improvements - make sure to read the full changelog below!
