            Money Glitch05 Jul 2016 15:37  

            I just encountered a problem where I had 64,000 coin. I did some major selling and found I then had 800 coin when I was done. I loaded an earlier save and bought all the diagrams I could find, consolidated all items into their highest level, etc. In other words, wasted a bunch of coin rather than lose it. Seems it rolls over now. I don't know if this is new, platform dependent, or an old bug. (PS4)
