The newest patch for survival game Population Zero largely focuses on Technologies, in addition to several bug fixes.

The patch also addresses the banker, which now has 55 item slots, and quests. For example, the quest requirements have changed for “Steps to Rescue: Meat for the Hub” so you need 15 pieces of Grilled Meat instead of 80.

Technologies updates include:

  • Now, Roasted Sahrim Meat recipe requires Rootstick instead of Coal. This Technology is placed closer to the beginning of the Atlas
  • Various repair kits for tools and weapons are now available in the Atlas:
    • Bone repair kit
    • Metal repair kit
    • Xenophungus repair kit
    • Scyphopod repair kit

The post notes that repairs can now happen instantaneously.

  • The number of Theory Points awarded for researching specific mobs and resources has been increased as follows:
    • Kvar: from 4 to 5 ThP
    • Merid: from 5 to 8 ThP
    • Limestone: from 15 to 20 ThP
    • Peat: from 15 to 20 ThP
    • Forest Kvar, Forest Yutt, Forest Fury, Scyphopod Worker, Scyphopod Warriors: from 45 to 50 ThP

The patch also covers off resources, biomes, mobs, texts, UI, visuals, animations, performance, and bug fixes. You can catch the full patch notes on Reddit.
