    Other Notes

    1. The Rock you have been looking for has been made bigger (whimps) but because it is bigger and easier to find there is now a key required to get in. Something about new shovels dropping from mobs in hell.

    2. Pesky Crabs burrowed into the vault under Neverdie’s Pawn Shop. After extensive use of explosives the crabs were driven back and the tunnel collapsed. A full inventory check revealed a small amount of Speed metal was missing.

    Since "maintainance" ive noticed a 90% drop in non-shrap loots on vixens in the club lot. Done several runs on them so far and all about the same. Unless im struck with some bad luck it seems loot changes have taken effect on them at least.

    Data bot gives mission.
    Some weapons look different.
    National Guard Radio if Im right Dragon did an instance for this.
    The new dungeon items may have been added but are not turned on = MA needs to turn on

    All I can give for what you asked big-D

    I can also say the 1st thing on the post was not done.
    The basement does not say Spare Tire Marina when you raid safe lmao but at least its working for now.

    The werewolf mine instances should be closed as they seem to usually have an invisible wall that appears towards the end that prevents a player from reaching the treasure. Relogging doesn't seem to help. Im told this applies to Level 1,2, & 3 werewolf mines.
