Now, without further ado, let's see what's new in this version.

=== CryoFall v0.13.0 ===

Major new features:
   - New quest system!
   - Number of starting quests that will teach new players basics of the game and provide general guidance early on, we will be expanding this system with each subsequent update further
   - Items can now be used directly from inventory (drag and drop it on your character or simply Alt+Click on it)
   - New strength boost medicine and character effects
   - New structure: Evaporation fridge
   - New items: industrial chemicals, new bottles with water (salty and stale), etc.
   - New props and decorations for ruined towns
   - New equipment: respirator
   - Help button in inventory (listing of all the item shortcuts)
   - Interaction tooltips/hints are added to world objects
   - Many new technologies
   - Trees now drop saplings that can be planted
   - New water type (lake)
   - You can now fill bottles from water bodies (lakes and sea)
   - Added survey when exiting the game (please leave your feedback if you have extra 5 minutes)

Changes:
   - Map size expanded (specifically desert and northern area)
   - Map now includes more points for oil and lithium extraction
   - New points of interest to explore on the map
   - Each radtown now has an individual sign to denote which type of facility it was (and consequently what loot you can expect)
   - Radtowns radiation levels rebalanced (there are three distinct tiers of radiation danger depending on the facility type)
   - AI can now move and attack up/down slopes
   - Screenshot now includes game version
   - You can now move even with any menu open
   - Door blueprints are now "open" by default so you can move through them
   - You can no longer punch trees (you could, but no damage applied and the game will tell you to use an axe)
   - Significant balance changes, especially to crafting (some recipes are also cheaper)
   - Improved performance across the board, especially asset streaming which decreases the micro freezes on asset loading
   - Improved server performance so you should experience smooth gameplay even if there are hundreds of players.
   - Credits updated and now includes the list of used technologies.

Fixes:
   - Fixed exploit with weapon range. We will see how it plays and make further changes if necessary
   - Fixed issue with some animals that couldn't be killed
   - Fixed annoying head bobbing during the melee attack animation
   - Fixed console not opening in non-US keyboard layouts
   - Fixed new options not applying when an updated version of the game is launched
        - Fixed incorrect door orientation detection when building a door near an another door.
   - Number of other fixes and improvements

Important:
   - The world has been wiped. Enjoy a fresh start!

=== CryoFall v0.13.1 ===

New features:
- Allows to unload ammo by cycling ammo type to "none" ("B" key by default)

Changes:
- Increased creatures attack range (will be properly implemented in the next small patch with the required balancing changes)

- More responsive actions when clicking on buildings/objects
- Added context menu to chat. You can click on any name for additional actions (such as mention and copy)
- Implemented chat message size limit

- Decreased food value for cooked meat (it was way too high compared to other foods; farming is more justified now)
- Improved creatures orientation based on the target position

- "Rechargeable battery" renamed to "High power capacitor" (this item was not implemented as an actual rechargeable battery; currently it's only used in high tier land claims)

Fixed:
- Fixed chat scrolling
- Fixed an issue when the attack animation sometimes not playing
- Fixed an issue when the campfire (or any other object) animation was stuck in the "active" state or was playing over another active animation

And another update! We are on the roll this time! :)

=== CryoFall v0.13.2 ===

Changes:
- Rebalanced creatures attack range, attack rate, and damage defense (this is really quite substantial change so we'd like to hear your thoughts on this)
- Slightly rebalanced Herbal Remedy recipe
- Increased healing herbs spawn density
- Rebalanced Musket and Flintlock pistol (increased damage, but also longer reloading time)
- Rebalanced armor defense formula to provide slightly more protection
- Increased armor durability (roughly by 2 times)
- Increased armor base stats, especially for impact protection and rebalanced certain armors to be more suitable for their designed role
- Further item synchronization improvements

Fixed:
- Fixed weapon scantest - in some cases the hit was not registered (this is very major improvement as it affects both player weapons and monsters)
- Fixed placement of seeds and saplings: it was possible to place it in your current position and stuck there (thanks @Aroie)
