Обновление 1.5.0

Общее
- Добавлена поддержка готовящихся к выходу материалов, в том числе модификаций, получаемых за игру в «Poker Night 2».
- Исправлена ошибка, из-за которой можно было превысить вместимость банка и тайников. Лишние предметы не изымаются и не удаляются, однако добавить что-то в переполненный банк/тайник теперь нельзя.
- В аппарате модификации добавлен предварительный просмотр покупаемых за настоящие деньги модификаций, чтобы перед покупкой можно было узнать, как будет смотреться та или иная голова или костюм.
- Исправлена ошибка, которая позволяла игрокам становиться непобедимыми с помощью навыка сирены.
- При создании новой игры пользователь теперь может использовать латинскую букву "c" в своем имени, и при этом на экране не появляется сообщение «загрузите персонажа».

Задания
- Исправлены ошибки, мешавшие выполнить следующие задания:
* Никудышный день
* Лучший слуга в мире
* В режиме «Величайший искатель Хранилища» исправлена ошибка, из-за которой «босс» задания «Заповедник» продолжал сражаться после окончания боя.
* (дополнение «Капитан Скарлетт»): Исправлена ошибка, из-за которой Скарлетт не бросала «Жадность Скарлетт» в бою с Роско.

Снаряжение
- Исправлена ошибка, из-за которой число гранат сохранялась неправильно, если игрок использовал модификацию «Гренадер».
- Исправлена ошибка, из-за которой «Товары дня» у скупщика кристаллов были ограничены сверху 55-м уровнем.
- Модификация «Титан» шизострела изменена так, чтобы больше соответствовать другим модификациям класса.
- Исправлена ошибка, из-за которой время восстановления щита «Эволюционатор» становилось равным 0.00 секунд.
- Исправлено воспроизведение звука ударных щитов, которое не работало при подключении к другому игроку.
- Исправлена ошибка, из-за которой возникало искажение звука, если трансфузионная граната застревала в объекте.
