C.A.M.P., Crafting, & Workshops

  • Floors: Corrected an issue that caused basic floor objects to consume more C.A.M.P. budget than intended
    • Note: If you had lots of basic flooring in your C.A.M.P., you should notice a small boost to your available C.A.M.P. budget after today’s update
  • Lights: Added an alternate version of the Oval Holiday String Lights that can be mounted on walls
    • Note: If you already own the Oval Holiday String Lights, you will now be able to build both the wall and ceiling-mounted versions; players who unlock this item in the Atomic Shop in the future will also be able to build both versions
  • Misc.: The Scorchbeast Heart Specimen Capsule’s collision no longer persists in the world after the Capsule has been destroyed
  • Stairs: Addressed an issue that could prevent NPCs from going up or down the Nuka-Cola Metal Stairs
