Anarchy Extinction Bug: the SALVAGE mission SCAVENGER NPCs are still attached to local anarchy and not some neutral pirate faction. You can still be sent on missions by an anarchy faction where you have to murder that faction's NPCs to complete it. (raised by Naboo)

Previously reported as fixed by FDev, it was apparently only fixed for retrieval and protect missions.

WhErE tHe ChEeSe At?

Juustoleipä (cheese bread), originally comes from Southern Ostrobothnia, Northern Finland. It is known in English as 'Finnish squeaky cheese' because it "squeaks'' against the teeth when bitten. It’s a fresh cheese made from cow's beestings, rich milk from a cow that has recently calved. It can be made also from reindeer or even goat's milk. The cheese is 'toasted' during its preparation and it contains about 20 to 22% fat while today's lighter versions contain about 12% fat.
