The 0.58 patch has finally arrived! As a continuation of the previous 0.57 update, new bugfixes & improvements in the loot economy system have been implemented and are still hardly worked on. Remember, developers warned us that it will take some time to make the feature fully functional, final goal being a complete region control over loot spawn, rarity and density. That said, after a brief apparition during the 0.57 experimental iterations, the new 3rd person camera has also made its returns. Including new settings for a better “above wall” exploit fix.

Stable implementation of the persistence on loot, storage and vehicle inventory are also in. And on a final note, this patch provides a good ground base for the new repair mechanics on vehicles. First functions already appeared, as of: changing wheels, engine & glow plug.
