New feature: Utility item slots


Recommended Posts

It would be nice to have something like utility slots in addition to the equipment slots, toolbelt and inventory. These could be used for items that are attached to a person and grant passive abilities, needed to perform certain recipes and use certain items. Here are some possibilities: - Tools like saw, hammer, screwdriver and so on, needed to create certain items - Can opener: allows to open (and therefore use canned food. Bone shiv and hunting knife could also be used but consuming canned food would take more time with these - Compass: Remove compass from the UI and make it unlockable via item - Mobile Radar: Brings the mini map back to the game, should show all life forms in the same color, better version could distinguish between living or dead - Some other kind of sensoring system could be used to add the stealth indicator - Walkie-talkie: Could be used to enable voice chat or get messages and quests from NPC survivers - Mobile Radio/MP3 Player: To listen to some music while exploring, mobile radio could attract zeds - Tracker: Friends can see your position on the map and compass while on the minimap friends see you in a different color. Could also be placed on the ground to create waypoints which can be seen on the minimap and map (different color). A new mode could be added in which after death your dead body starts walking with your belongings. If you had a tracker in one of your utility slots you are able to track your corps on the compass/map/minimap. This would add a lot of steps to work towards that make your life a lot easier when reached. I especially like the idea of gaining more sensory information via items.
