As you can read in the new update, it is said that "crafted object repair" is a feature in progress. I never heard of this system being implemented, and I don't understand how it will be balanced with item decay and a good economy. If items can be repaired, then crafting and economy won't be good as people won't need new items, just repair their old ones.
The only way I could see viable some sort of objetc repairing system is if it is only used for buildings and maybe bins, or if you can repair all kind of items, then by repairing it you should decrease their max durability by a lot, so that repairing it like 2 times makes your item useless due to their very low max durability.
Can any dev explain a bit more what object repair means?
