Your equipment in Sector 7 now has its own numerical designation (the "GS" parameter next to the slots with clothes in the character's inventory). We hope that this will help you choose more powerful and balanced items, as well as making it easier to assemble a team for battle with serious opponents. 
You can see the overall average value between all the slots with clothes and the character's weapon slot. All empty slots in this case will be equal to 0 GS. For example, if your character is equipped with a 500 GS-powered crossbow, but all slots with clothes are empty, then the total Gear Score will result in only 100 GS (500/5 = 100).
