Make camp gear weigh less, use smaller icons, and add a camping bag

Post by Subutai » Wed Aug 21, 2019 2:14 am

Camping has always been a big part of DnD games. It's very common to do a lot of RP and adventuring surrounding sitting down to camp for the night, and it can add a lot of fun to the game. Unfortunately on Arelith, this is something extremely difficult and tedious to do. Tents and bedrolls each take up 6 inventory squares, and at least the merchant-sold bedroll weighs a whopping 100 lb, meaning that Str-based characters have trouble carrying camping gear due to space issues, and non-Str-based characters have trouble carrying camping gear due to weight issues.

It would be really great, and add a lot of options for RP, if bedrolls, tents, and other camping gear could be made lighter, use smaller icons, and even better if a camping gear bag could be added so that anyone can carry around their camping gear without filling up a ton of inventory space and weighing their character down.

There were a few additional ideas discussed here, such as limiting the number of each item in the bags, setting camping gear to disappear on reset (such as making it an item that spawns the gear, but doesn't disappear from your inventory), and a few other nice suggestions.

Approved, especially as I'm planning on vastly expanding the size of the Arelith wilderness)

New item icons were introduced, and the weights of tents reduced.

We are trying to avoid adding more bags.

Moving to completed.
