The popup inventory "Contents" freezes the game

Game mode: [Online | Singleplayer]
Problem: [Bug | Performance]
Region: [US West]

The popup inventory dialogue appears when you hover to focus over an item with inventory. It is suppose to allow quick access to and give current view of top items. It works except for the speed it does it. When hovering over an inventory that hasn’t been looked at during the session (hint, no cache yet) it will freeze the game until the popup inventory dialogue is fully visible with all icon details. I’m surprised this hasn’t been fixed.

A quick fix to it would be to test if the focus (the cursor) is moving. If the player moves the cursor (while the cursor is moving then) don’t show the popup inventory dialogue.

Once the player stops in place over an item with inventory then the popup should do its thing to show inventory.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Glide the cursor over an item with inventory
  2. Notice it freezes the game while the dialogue loads the icons
  3. Few seconds latter, notice you can move again

I don’t think cache has much to do with it, Most of my larger bases, even if i’ve looked in it before, will always take 2-3 seconds to load it.
I tend to hit square now just to open it out right and by pass the wait.

And fact tanner bench, quick menu doesnt seem work. (carpenter bench does this time to time, no matter how close I get)
