Ive been enjoying the crap out of this game since its release. I did not play any of the alpha, but I am told that the game has been much improoved. I see a lot of potential for curent large systems (combat, dungeons, bosses, crafting, and the purge). And while I’m sure these systems will continue to be improved and interated upon, I think there are a few small quality of life things that can be done to make this game flow a bit better from second to second while playing. Please note that I craft and build for my clan so a lot (and by a lot I mean all) of these are focused on those areas and their supporting systems.
Use of Ctrl+f to search the crafting recipes in both the inventory screen and the recipe lists in the crafting stations. The keyboard command ought to engage the search bar above recipes, or highlight all text currently in that box to be replaced with the new search. Double clicking any search bar should also highlight text so that it can be replaced instead of having to manually delete the current text.
Recipe search restrictions should persist through opening and closing the Inventory window.
Option to use the same radial menu for the item bar when using keyboard and mouse controls that pad controls use.
Automatically disarm/unequip hot bar items when interacting with crafting stations.
One extra that is a bit more difficult to pull off, and I think people might be divided on. It would be nice to be able to “pull” from nearby chests and crafting station inventories when crafting something by hand or in a crafting station. Make it so you can only pull from your personal inventory and owned containers and crafting stations, and the option to pull from clan owned box and crafting stations that are unlocked or flagged for sharing.
