It’d be cool to see an auto-loot mechanism in place in the options menu. Playing as a wizard using teleport or summon can be annoying when grabbing items. If I can find the old auto-loot script used in NWN, maybe I can post it here so you could consider adding it to the game. It may only serve as a general concept since NWN 1 used a different language and the use of the code was probably quite different in terms of input used in the script, but it may be a starting point so that you don’t have to modify everything quite as much.

Here is the script that I found, if multiplayer is added to the game, a splitting system would be beneficial anyways… but maybe you can take something from it to use it in the game?

All information here is as listed in the contact info, and I do not own or have association with any of the listed info in this quote.

Auto loot as in whenever something drops it automatically goes into your inventory from whenever it is in the map?


Well… this might be a bit of a spoiler… but we plan on having a method for items being picked up automatically ( to a degree ) for you. Don’t think we’ll straight up pick everything that drops automatically, as that’s slightly overly convenient, and takes away a bit from the other mechanic we plan on introducing.

More like an item affix that ups the range of “loot take”

Or another kind of pet with that kind of ability sounds nice :smile:
