+ Combat team's equipped items can be automatically repaired before combat.

If you could also repair the items in their personal inventory. We often carry alternate weapons in there, and those are the one you could forget to repair the most.

+ New Perk: Don't Crowd Me - Each adjacent enemy, excluding the first, increases close combat damage by 6% (T)

We have permanent melee perk that give +20% and +10%. A situational bonus need to be bigger since it apply less often.
I think +12% for the 2nd enemy would be ok, 3rd and above could add +6%

TYPO

+ Tradng ammo no longer contributes to trade skill or shop level, due to an exploit. (Nomad & Ba$t@rd)

Hey - don't crowd me isn't really intended to compete with destroyer, which has much higher requirements, but rather compliment it. Will think about it though.
