New parts may end up that way initially, but they usually have a better max performance rating than the previous part even if the current base state for the new part is less than the rating of the current part.
Oh yeah I've seen that a few times. But no, the part the tutorial made me make was worse even at max than my original was at base. Never mind.
Hope the game gets plenty of buys and continued support and expansion. Already seen the 2015 name patch. Looking forward to more!
Amazing this has come out but GPRM is basically dead after like 14 years waiting!
