Repair items in inventory or chests

Post by Paul » Tue Dec 23, 2014 6:34 pm

After Construction robots have repaired all placed items and built anything requested, then I think they should repair items in a players inventory, and then any damaged items in any chest.

Alternative Option for Inventory repair: If the player has repair packs perhaps the inventory could repair automatically using those (over time).

Repair things in inventory

I'd like to suggest a way to repair damaged walls and turrets in your inventory.

Currently the UI to repair those is terrible! They take up one slot each. Before you can repair them, you have to place them, one by one individually, opening "e" each time in between to make sure you select the next damaged one. Then you can repair them on the ground.

Using the repair tool on your inventory, or a way to auto-repair things in your inventory, would be such a great improvement over this. Thanks!

Autorepair while holding repair packs sounds a bit too easy and construction robots shouldn't really interact with player inventory imho. [EDIT]Interact in terms of repairing stuff in your pocket I mean[/EDIT]

Though I like the idea of manually repairing items in the inventory instead of swapping items when clicking on something damaged with a repair pack.

But there are too many things on the roadmap for such a small suggestion atm :/
Think about all the plans for Steam greenlight and new endgame content ...

It is a pain in the butt not being able to at least manually repair items while they in one's inventory, e.g. Gun Turrets that have taken damage.
