Minor bug.   The stamina circle has the red encumbrance portion at the end not the beginning, and looks a bit odd when draining.

PS The Hacksaw thing is a welcome fix, thanks.

Seems they sorted the cook menu to list UnCooked food first excellent QoL change.

OLD BUG (still present).  Using charcoal does not update the map.  Resources that are not available to harvest/collect for hundreds+ days  still show up no matter how many pieces of charcoal the player uses.

Please fix the bug in Episode two where the bear spear when attacked is dropped and ends up below the terrain, becoming untargetable. Please have the bear spear, when dropped always be visible.

Thanks Hinterland, but my game still crashes entering or exiting a building in Mountain Town. had the same issue in PV but I have not retested it. I also get random freeze when outside and have to alt F4 out. 

Also since the update, the wind sound cuts in and out when inside a building. I have done all the troubleshooting steps.

Anyone have some work arounds? I tried dropping bedroll and sleeping for an hour before I enter a building to force a save but that crashes too.

My current method to not go insane is to go in and out a few times until game crashes then I know I can go do some activity outside and not crash when I return to grey mom's house and get a clean save. Once I dump all my loot inside, I have to force a crash again so I can do any indoor activities like cooking and not lose all that work.

Sleeping indoors does not crash when it saves on waking.

It is a nicely very consistent bug: go in out in out Crash. Or go out in out in Crash. Then I can go do ONE activity like loot ONE building.

Thank you Hinterlands! Awesome to see a new update. I'll have to test and see if the Survival Mode music is back in my current STALKER game or not. Since the last update, I've had no music and it has been very depressing. Considering before that, after Vigilant Flame, my game wasn't playing any of the new music introduced. Now it plays no music in Survival Mode whatsoever. Being a Canadian musician, the music in this game was a huge selling point for me along with everything else about it. So hopefully this fixes the issues. I'm on PS4 and if anyone could help. I't would be greatly appreciated!

Its normal that after this update red line limiting your stamina is placed on other side of stamina circle?

Great update in general.

Xbox One X.  Two more minor issues/bugs.  On top of the two I mentioned above (1. Stamina bar, 2. Charcoal not updating the resources on the map)

3. The Bears located at Timber Wolf Mountain have pathing issues and walk in place all day.  Noticed this with the Bear to the "West" of Deer Clearing, and the Bear a bit "North" of the Landing Gear as you enter the Region.  Cardinal directions based on the sun for TWM. 

4.  The mountaineering rope tie point near the Transition of Timberwolf Mountain to Pleasant Valley has an weird elevation change as you walkaround the rope tie rock the ground raises and lowers based on where you stand.  This can cause anything placed on the ground to be covered up by snow, and invisible to the player.
