Throughout the game, including various locations that may have previously not really been worth searching, you may now find a new consumable item that will improve the condition of armour. When procedural weapons are introduced, this will apply to those too.

In the new procedural system items have quality, condition and traits. Most items found in Exanima's depths are not well preserved. The idea is that even a badly rusted item may have a valuable combination of quality and traits. You should look out for these items, and choose which to invest in rather than simply equip the overall best you find. Larger items that are in poor condition may require multiple consumables to restore, so condition is still a factor to consider for the investment required.

We have also adjusted quality, condition and traits to have a more significant effect on item stats. These mechanics will be expanded on and tweaked over time, so as always give us your feedback.

Sounds great, the procedural system seems like a really cool idea, I can't wait to see the end result. As a suggestion to balancing the statistics of each weapon when they are degraded, I would think poor condition wouldn't really affect blunt or heavy weapons all that much, but would drastically reduce the effectiveness of slashing and thrust weapons.
