usability: remember last used option


Recommended Posts

When breaking branches the player can select the tool to use: hatchet or none (by hand).
Hatchet is always selected by default.
Since I don't want to ruin the hatchet, I always end up having to select "none".
This got me thinking: it'd be nice if it remembered the last option I chose!

The same logic of "auto-selecting the last used option" could also be applied in other cases:

- when equipping a light source

- when equipping a weapon

- when starting fires

- when repairing items

- when harvesting carcasses

- when breaking frozen holes

- ... whenever we're presented with options

I think this would be a better strategy than always presenting the first option in the list.
