    • In the crafting screen, would love to see a comparison between what I'm currently equipped with vs what I've selected to craft. In the Inventory screen, I have no idea where any extra weight is without going into each category (weapons, clothes, etc). Please add some sort of weight indicator next to each category so I know exactly where I seem to be overloaded. In the Map, please mark completed items (assault in progress, access points), grey out the icons or something similar?

    • >>[1021 I experienced the same bug on pc with patch 1.3. Iris would follow the van everywhere but never get in. Finally I tried driving the van into the junk yard in front of the building where you first find her. Got out of the van walked to the garage where it was previously parked, then walked back to the van. This time when I entered the van driver side, she entered on the passenger side. Was able to complete the the gig.
