Scores get smaller
The developer also fixed another problem with the savegames. Only Hotfix 1.06 took care of a bug that destroyed your saved games if they got too big. Update 1.1, however, now fixes the reason that the saves could get so big in the first place.
Cause of the problem was a modifier that indicates whether an item was homemade. However, the developer does not go into any further detail in the description.
No salvation for defective scores: Update 1.1 cannot repair saved games that were broken before Hotfix 1.06. This is unlikely to change in the future either. So your only chance is to use an older save that is still working.
