Superego Posted September 28, 2014 Share Posted September 28, 2014 At the moment the way you store items works well enough, but it feels very limited, artificial and "gamey".As you explore the world and its various locations, you find items sitting on benches and beside tables and on shelves etc. But other than storing items in containers such as boxes and lockers, the only place to put things is on the floor.Yet you can place the bedroll before using it (you have to) and you can place the lantern by right clicking to enter placement mode before clicking on a place where the lantern is highlighted green. I'd love to be able to do exactly this with other items. Particularly things such as bottled water and canned food and drink - lining them up on a shelf to display the spoils of my brave endeavors. Jerry cans look fine on the floor but again it would be nice to have the ability to actually place them in a specific spot rather than just "drop" them out of your inventory onto the floor haphazardly. I'd like to have my jerry can against a wall in a corner, maybe store wood in one of those wooden crates you see dotted about the world - things to make your chosen shelter look good and well-stocked.Also, the containers themselves are very "gamey" in that they're limited by a mass restriction. For example a small desk drawer may hold 5 Kg. As a result it will quite easily store a jerry can. But to me, a jerry can should not fit into a small desk drawer. Personally I'd like to see a grid system and even a grid-based inventory but that's perhaps not for everyone since inventory management adds another element to consider while playing (though I'd like it very much).For the most part, the ability to place rather than just drop items - like the lantern and bedroll - would be awesome!Thoughts?
