Yeah, I was kinda in a rush to release the first version. This next version will be MUCH better. In fact, it's getting so complex that I think I might have to write a full user manual for it before I release the next version.
Yesterday, for example, I added a new shop that has limited stock that changes over time. I also added a new crafting system and I'm about to install a new book viewer!
