Core Keeper: Experimental Patch 0.3.9 Adds New Reinforcement Mechanic

A new reinforcement mechanic has been added in Core Keeper via an experimental update. Patch 0.3.9 now allows you to extend the durability of your items by using some of the items’ crafting materials. Reinforcing provides a small stat boost as well.

In addition, it seems that the community did not like the changes to the repair system implemented in a previous update, so the developers reverted them back in Experimental Patch 0.3.9.

Now, you can repair your stuff by using scrap parts again. However, there are things that you need to keep in mind. First, you’ll need more scrap parts when repairing higher-tier items. Don’t worry, the Bearded Merchant now offers scrap parts instead of wood, so you can just head to him if you need some. Second, salvaging gives you scrap parts again rather than the salvaged item’s crafting materials.

This update brings some quality-of-life changes as well. For instance, new options can be found on the pause menu, such as the ability to turn other people into server admins, and the power to ban unruly or uncooperative players.
