inventory ideas

Postby Scarr » Thu Oct 15, 2015 2:55 pm

I really like the fact that you added a search option and a filter option but you need to go one step forward and make it so that if you type in say thatch that when you hit the transfer button all you get is thatch and not everything in the inventory.. Also it would be beneficial if when you placed folders in your dino safe or whatever that items would automatically sort itself into those folders for easy retrieval

yes that would be nice. It would also be nice that everything that was transferred was transferred in full stacks. Even if stacks completed before making another stack. Im always fixing partial stacks so I can squeeze in another item because all i have is a bunch of partial stack.

++ to making full stacks automatically. Even if it was just a button to auto-compact the inventory it would be better than spending all of that time dealing with partials.

++ to the transfer inventory via filter idea as well. Not sure how well that would work without a keyboard though. Maybe choose from a drop down listing of the names of all of the items currently in inventory. Just thinking of the poor console users.

Completely agree with you IsBatty. I just dont understand all the partial stacks. If something is going to be transfered from 1 place to another, you would think the stacks would just automatically fill partial stacks. The TRANSFER ALL SELECT ITEMS option would be very handy as well. Inventory Auto Sort would be something nice to see that should also fill all partial stack. Clicking on an item and maybe an option down by the USE ITEM BUTTON that will say MOVE ALL OF SELECTED ITEM button that will move everything of the item you clicked on. Considering the Bronto causes lag when Im sweeping for berries or thatch, This could be something there concerned about.

Here are some solutions fir you that you might not know about.
1: pushing T instantly transfers the item from one inventory to the other. So if you search Thatch and all your thatch filters, just hit T a few times.

2: if an inventory is full, adding more of an item will force it to stack with any existing items in the inventory. So say you have a large box of 19 Raw Meat in each, hit T over a meat in your inventory and it'll start forcing them over to complete the stacks.

3: dragging one stack over another stack in YOUR inventory will cause them to combine. This does not work in boxes.

4: holding shift splits a stack in half, holding cltr splits off 1. This also works with the T command.

I have found in select cases that it's beneficial for things not to auto stack, as as since in your personal inventory of a pet's it's affected by weight and not stack limit, this seems like a trivial point to me with the current already implimenting mechanics.

yes, Im aware of all that. I have done the item search with (T)ransfer. After a few things transfer, it goes back to full inventory and not just my search inventory.
