Thank you guys so much! About to get into Milton, as soon as my game restarts. Sad to say, but already found a bug. I went to new game, looked at custom difficulty, then backed out of it. When I came back to it, I couldn’t adjust any settings.

Edit: it does this even after I load up a game. When I go back to the custom settings, I can’t do anything

Friendly note here. The update is fantastic but just be wary of carry over games at PV farmstead, ps4, 227 days on stalker. I was in the farm house before the update. After the game update I can loot the basement constantly. It resets as a new discovered location every time you enter the house and then go back to the basement. All my supplies were saved perfectly in the house ( base). This may only be for carry over games but basically I have infinite, boots, crow bars, antiseptics, pants, whetstones, matches, firewood, candy bars etc. Quite an advantage and a bit of a bummer.

All I can do is say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. 20 € spent on this game is the best  "most value for money" transaction I have ever done. So much new stuff and improvements all the time. Thank you.

I still have a question @admin. The wildlife option combinations:
Passive Wildlife Off + Wolf Fear High 
Passive Wildlife On + Wolf Fear None

These combinations are not consistent. One choice makes the other choice not matter. If they are working how you intended for them to, can someone please explain to me the reasoning/nature behind these combinations of choices so I have a better understanding as to why they don't? Passive Wildlife off should mean that bears and moose will be aggressive, but wolves will run away with their fear turned up high. I even adjusted the range they detect me to promote this fear. It did nothing. If we can toggle on/off aggression, then the option to touch wolf fear shouldn't even be there if it doesn't matter. I won't be getting this on PC until I get a new PC early next year, so for now I play on PS4. I can't speak for other platforms if this works the same.

Thanks for your time.
