Subj: Smelting Patchnotes

Hey all!

Just wanted to let you guys know of a few tweaks I've put in with the patching system over the last few days:
-When smelting ores, the overall stats of the new bar are a random number determined between 1 and the maximum overall stats of the metal type.
-When smelting new steel, only the stats of the iron parent bar matter in determining the stats of the new steel bar.
-Balance times for sorting and smelting have both been reduced to 2 seconds.
-You may no longer smelt while prone.
-Endurance costs have been cut to 2 per sort, mine or smelt.
-The algorithm involved in determining stats when smelting has been changed to ensure that the primary stat of the bar will always account for -at least- 80% of the overall amount.
