[0.16.26] Player Inventory Filter In Campaign First Steps

Post by Immun »

the player inventory filter in the campaign "first steps" at the beginning is missing the "category view". guess is because there are no "categories" introduced for crafting items at this point in the game.

Yes, but I don't see how it is a bug.

ok, not really a bug but looks strange (at least to me) if the filters are looking different on different places in the game

The option to turn on/off the crafting categories are affecting all the places where recipe/item/signal is selected, and it is done by that way on purpose.

The settings is forced specifically in the first 2 missions of the campaigns to avoid having categories for the very few items in the crafting.
The fact that filters don't have categories as well is kind of an side-effect, but it is consistent with the way game works.

thanks for the answer and of course happy to hear if all is consistent and not a bug at all :)

Could you make it so that you can only filter to items that are available to you in that scenerio, or would that cause issues with how it's set up/console commands etc.?

It is not that easy, since not all items can be crafted or unlocked (ores for example). And you might want to have filters prepared even before it is available.

I meant specifically for the campaign, where there's a small list of things it is possible for you to get, but I suppose that it probably wouldn't be worth it because it works fine as is anyway, people playing the early levels of the tutorial probably don't know or need filters, and custom campaigns/mods/console commands could cause some issues.
