Arrow/Bolt/Bullet-auto reload ON/OFF?

Post by Petrifictus » Wed Jan 17, 2018 4:04 pm

"Hey lycans! Luckily I've some silver arrows with me and... oh, nevermind. Looks like I wasted them on those mad badgers on the roads when I ran out of arrows without notice."

"One shot is all I need to kill this dragon before it's too late... oh dear, I wasted my only shot with light arrow which does no damage at all."

Time to time I find it little annoying when running out of ammo, the player character auto reloads picking one of your good or bad ammos, until you see it too late. I know in the middle of battles it makes sense that characters are too busy to start nitpicking ammo from their inventory, but if it's possible I would suggest option for players to toggle auto reloading ON or OFF.

Not sure whether this suggestion is possible for Arelith to implement, but note that you do have some measure of control over which arrows get equipped: it will always equip the arrows that entered your inventory most recently. If you want your good arrows to be protected, drop several stacks of your normal arrows into a barrel and pick them back up, ensuring that those arrows are the ones that get equipped.
