Upgrading items also increases their quality every several levels.
Works with game version: 1.61
THIS REQUIRES REDSCRIPT. Download the zip and unzip into the base of your Cyberpunk installation. If you have redscript set up just run the game.
Allows an item to reach the next quality tier every 6th upgrade
Caps upgrade costs to the 8th upgrade level + quality level, so upgrading doesn’t become too out of hand but still not as good as investing in crafting
Allows level 50 items to be upgraded to next tier level but at a higher cost (*20 base cost), doesn’t upgrade actual level just tier
Upgrading a weapon does not add bonus stats that you would get from crafting an equivalent quality weapon. For now anyway.
