Ok so what's going on? I see there's been a patch on PC and PS4 but no patch on XB1?

The mod manager is still messed up as ever on xb1 taking minutes if not half an hour or longer to do the "spinning logo" checks on mods. Also you have to constantly resort the list to regain focus as you lose control of which mod you clicked on.

I just got XB1 patch just now. And man, it's kind of funny. I see like all 4 of the bugs I know I at least made a report for fixed in this update. So glad too, those freezes with RC transports and the farms just not working right were awful.

I have posted this on the suggestion thread, but shouldn't the universal depot be updated to include seeds? I feel like this was an oversight with the green planet DLC.
