Ha. Was just playing the Pit and quit. Then Steam started downloading something and here we are.

This is a pleasant surprise, given the history behind some of these bugs and features. Perhaps there is some hope that the strange space-time distortions in the Pit will be rectified one day, so that those brave adventurers who dare challenge its depths will be able to see as far to the north and south as they can to the east and west... yes, one can have some hope now.

Wow.. just wow such a fast a meaningful patch you guys are as your game... fantastic.

So many great additions like stacking/swaping items, moves left on hud, but really, Monster detailed stats in Sotdex is the 'omg' one (knowing how much armor enemies have is huge).

If you could add a few more shortcuts i'd be, well i'm so happy right now i'm not sure i could be more actually :)

A few questions: What does 'contained' mean in armor stats? Are you totally enclosed and so immune to, for instance, gas attacks? Also what does attack/moment refer to? I thought it was how many attacks you have per turn but some enemies like protean (small) show only 1 when they attack 4 times or many automatic weapons show also 1 when they have 3 shots.

One last thing, when you use have many insances of the same tool, often the game doesn't ask you to use the one with the lower charges (i have 3 lockpick sets, two with 5 chages and one with 2 and it asks me to use the one with 5 so i have to drop the two with 5 charges to use the one with 2 chrges so i can eventually be able to free inventory space). Too many numbers i don't know if i made sense at all haha.

Awesome game and you're making it even better with every patch. Thanks.
Although, I want more shortcuts so badly. Four is just not enough for all my stuff.
