A Better Inventory Slot Layout
« on: August 13, 2016, 05:30:34 am »
Am I the only one who would do this?







A BETTER INVENTORY LAYOUT

I'm thinking there needs to be more 2x1 slots. There's plenty of 1x2 slots, and plenty of 2x1 objects. I'm trying to find a way to make the leg slots work as a 2x1 but it's difficult to squeeze them in.

Anyone have any ideas?

Personally I would get rid of the distinction altogether.
Treat 2x1 and 1x2 identically except rotate the object sprite when in the other slot type.
I don't see how it adds to the game, I just find it an annoyance.

X-Com hasn't discovered the technology of rotation yet?

+1. Item rotation is really what's needed.

Quick draw and belt mods.

Together they simulate having a holster and a fanny pack.

So you get 3, 1x2s.

I'd like a quick draw, like extended piratez, but it should be named QH (quick holster), placed at the left of the belt, as the mentioned mod, if possible :)

You're not the only one.
I'll make a new thread for this in releases, I just need to tweak the costs a bit more.


This mod is now released, get it here:

Holy MOLY!

That is a ton of inventory space!

I both Like it and don't...

Is there a way to define inventory by armor? That is to say could we make different armors have different inventory slots?

gonna post in OXCE+ thread.

XPiratez handles different armors and their capacities by adding Nulls that block out parts of the overall space.

I've not played too much of piratez.... I know I'm a slacker heathen or something.


So I'll load it up and take a look...

I'm assuming that it is functionally identical to what I am talking about, but has a different graphical effect.

Thanks IVAN!
