Auto Loot feature?
« on: April 30, 2015, 10:19:43 am »
Can an auto loot feature be implemented
So I just hit F to grab the container I want and my ship automatically takes anything inside when it gets close enough. I should only get that trade window if something doesnt fit in my cargo hold.
Its a bit annoying having that window pop up when i am trying to fight aliens and loot at the same time.

Easy Solution: Don't fight and loot! ;P

Can we please have a real autolootfeature where the ship automatically
gathers any resources that fly around and dumps (also automatically of course)
those that are the least worth from both the floating container and
the cargohold?

Those containers never vanish until you exit the game.
So you could just focus on fighting, then later gather them all.
They would still block your path regarding movement and weapons though.
(personally, i would like that they explode when being rammed. the crates, not the ships ;) )
You also can press space, as far as i know, it has the same "take all and close window"-function.

With the way some fights go, i am worried about missing a container or forgetting it when everything is said and done. And who knows what kind of awesome item that container might have? Ok, I know that the loot tables in VE aren't exactly filled with Dreadnaughts and high end weapons, but i am something of a pack rat.

The issue with the loot screen is that its so damn big. If no auto loot then At least it should be smaller so that it doesnt block the entire screen.
