Hey Everyone. Here's a list of all the updates made in the last couple weeks or so, plus some new ones in today's update:

Rather Important:
-Prevented maps, service manuals, and other documents from being downscaled on lower texture quality settings.
-Added two new save points; you can find payphones in the auto parts store, and another one at the junkyard(Request)
-Jiggs Casey can now be paid to recover lost key items.
-Fixed an issue where the engine could slowly rotate if the game was paused with the engine on, and if paused long enough, could violently whip itself back into position causing the truck to flip.
-Addressed an issue where the car could hydrolock if transported immediately after getting stuck in water.
-Fixed an issue where certain important entities like the truck key or computer terminal could become inactive.
-Addressed the way the truck shuts off when upside down to hopefully fix a crash issue some users reported.
-Fixed an issue where the truck's seat could move out of place.
-Addressed an issue where engine head, distributor, rocker assembly, exhaust manifold, or main bearings could become difficult to detach or re-attach after reloading a save.
-Graphics settings had an issue where the setting wasn't saved.
-Fixed an issue where the disconnect icon wouldn't show up on certain parts, despite the part being able to disconnect.
-Added a workaround for existing saves with stuck rear gears; just attach a new gear to reset it.
-Fixed an issue where the rear differential cover wasn't saving properly, which lead to being unable
to access the rear gears. Attach and remove the cover to reset it if your save has this issue.

-Added another cornmeal package to the store's shelf.

by the observer relative to the phone's clock and real-world time. This could affect things like
trash spawning and moonshine fermentation progress.

to obtain. One bucket will yield about four crates of moonshine.

Dev Note:
Although marked as fixed, there are probably still some scenarios where one or more of these issues could happen again.
This early access game has been pretty rough around the edges, however the more positive aspect in this story comes from how unbelievably helpful the community has been in regards to reporting issues, offering good ideas, and helping in the discord. I'll be working on this project every day, getting things fixed and working on further optimization. I think this month I'll be able to release a small content update which I've been wanting to do for a while.

As for the modding community, sit tight, I'd like to help you out once I address all of the pressing issues with the core game.
