Make bulk crafting easier?
« on: June 06, 2017, 03:28:57 AM »
This would probably be more difficult than I think (like most things, sadly) but could we get something like a hotkey for crafting, or autofill from inventory when making certain things?

For example, say you've just gone on a rathound safari and want to make a bunch of crappy leather armor to turn into fabric patching kits.  Since you're the genocide of rats, you've got like 60 pelts.  Dragging each one into the crafting window, then clicking craft, forces a lot of duplication of action.  Then you have to do it all over again with Recycle Item.  Could you have a hotkey to craft so you can just double-click the pelt/armor, hit the hotkey, and double-click on the next one.  Rinse and repeat.

Suppose you've been storing scrap for the day when you finally learn how to use a screwdriver, and you have ONE MILLION scrap.  Finally, you can make repair kits and buy your way out of the box in a sewer that you've called home.  Alas, you can only make four at a time, because they take 20 and scrap stacks to 99.  Then, when you've made four, you've got 19 scrap taking up the slot in the recipe.  Increasing the stack limit to whatever the credit limit is would of course help and might be easiest, in this case.  But if not, and if you're making things with materials that do not have a quality value, could they autofill from inventory?  Doesn't matter which extended magazine you use if you're just making several pistols to sell.

Incidentally, if there *is* a hotkey for crafting, this will be a delightfully embarrassing post, and a lesson about posting late at night when tired  :D

I see how adding a couple more hotkeys can speed up the process. I'll add it to the todo list.

Btw, you don't have to drag items into the window, you can click the slot and it will auto-fill that slot. Not as fast as what you're suggesting, but might speed you up a bit for the moment.

I did not know that.  Thank you.
