After getting back into the game, I make a new character, new save, get to the church and voila! Both the recycling station and the Plundra box both have ZERO weight capacity!
I play on PC, basically single player only. I’ve verified the game files twice, reinstalled the game, and made a new save. I still cannot store anything.
One more thing to note, upgrading the recycling station and the Plundra box is free and unending, I stopped at level 50.
Has some funky header too.
