  • Fixed issue with “Appropriation” where blueprints would not appear properly if the container had already been looted prior to getting the quest

  • Fixed distance check with Robotics Expert perk
  • While in Workshop mode, if the Jump button is remapped, the Y or Triangle button can still be used to jump
  • Ability to delete downloadable content via the Add-Ons menu (PS4)
