    You dont press E to pick up items in A18, you have to punch them or hit them with a stone axe. Part of the new unified pick up system.

    strange because in my a18 i DO NOT have to be looking and hitting "E" to hover up stuff is a habit with me.. but i dont waste time looking for each arrow... i just spam the "E" and move on. not if i happen to see a stray arrow in a while i will walk over and fetch it.

    if that happened, then books would just be a another common item and not something to try to find and appreciate...

    fear not... what i made note about has nothing to do with harvesting plants.. you still punch them.

    and my way of collecting arrows only means i dont waste time looking for them... the game may see my cursor but i myself am not watching where the arrows are.

    Will there be tool booths on some bridges loaded with coins?

    Having bandits guard the bridges and forcing players to pay a toll to cross would be funny.

    Just take some duct tape, you can make a splint if you need one. Better yet, take a cooking pot you can make duct tape anywhere you go then, because there are almost always bones/vultures/dogs to get bones as you go, and just make some glue/tape/splint on the spot with a bit of work.
    Why no access?

    Isn't it more beneficial to use medicated bandages?

    More healing.
    Stop bleeding.
    Less stacks used and so on?

    The bar was using some old UI code. It was recently changed to use our XUI system, which most of the UI uses. The bar is now bigger and I have not seen it disappear since the change.

    For A18, I reworked and did a lot of testing on molotov, grenade, pipebomb, dynamite and timed charge throwing, moving and colliding. They seem good to me.

    The crosshair has to 'touch' the body to use [E] successfully. When stuck in a block you do have to 'find' the spot before you can use [E], a bit wonky also based on the angle you're facing it. So I understang Guppycur's comment having trouble collecting them. It is indeed a skill to master. Just saying.
