seems that this is occurring in some places in the game and not in others.. we replaced that option with an easy crafting option.. pwizard will post shorly
Can't say. Just a game restart did the trick. Also, I went and changed the value myself - a just a 4-byte value and is easy to find. BEWARE! I ran into a problem - the max stack size, for parts at least, is decimal 999. So once the game recalculates the amount you have you end up with an inventory full of parts items.
Now, the NRG problem is easy to tackle - either craft n amount if cells to refill or use the Inf. Items option (slot the cell) and just remember to use it every now and then.
