I had honestly forgotten they left that mechanic in...
Binding was used in Global, which the Steam version is a near-identical port of, as a way to restrict item trading. In essence, players had to either sell their items unidentified, or buy sigils to unbind them after identifying them to be able to sell them.
That, of course, isn't a mechanic that belongs in an SP game, and shouldn't affect gameplay in any way. Unless they changed how that mechanic functions, which I seriously doubt.

Thanks Bryan. From what I understood, players were buying it to block it to sell it again, but there is no multiplayer mode. If someone for this game ever does LAN, where to get these sigils to block an item and pass it to another character? In the launcher mod, I see the option of reposting items inactive yet.

I have one more question: package 2.0 takes 1.3GB, what's in it and is it necessary to install Revival mod?

Well kind of. The game blocked identified items from being traded, so players had to buy sigils to unbind them and make them tradeable. A lovely way to make some money from endgame players.

That's a good question. I really don't remember if they made sigils available in-game in any way - they used to be cash shop items like preservatives. I've seen such items being available in vendors, but since you're looking for them I don't suppose they're there.
Of course, that's all hypothetical anyway. If it's any consolation, London 2038 has been up and running for years as an MP version of the game, and has no such dubious items to worry about.

The MP 2.0 patch contains SH data, such as weapons and models. By itself it's mostly useless, but many mods make use of its data. Revival should also use it, but you'd need to consult each mod's instructions to be sure. Revival 4.3 does state it needs both 1.2 SP and 2.0 MP, for example.
