Consumption Suggestion I suggest that when we go to eat and drink, the standby amount be "1" instead of "eat/drink as many of that item as you can". I get the advantage of the way it is, when it comes to meds, but I find myself absent-mindedly gobbling/drinking vast quantities when all I wanted was a little nibble/quaff.
Would that suit the group or should I just renew the bandages on mah brAAIIn?
I think this change makes sense. The use item section of consume defaults to 1, so it's consistent. And accidentally using 1 when you meant to use all is not nearly as bad as using all when you meant to use 1. Or, if the data is stored in a way this is possible, maybe pre-filling the amount to have the total rather than be blank, so it's more clear what'll happen?
Well, aside from having to go change the value each time, which is... sort of annoying... what's probably more inconveniencing is having to also go check my fullness levels to get the correct max input value and such.
Not like a HUGE inconvenience, but it's turned into a value check and entry pretty much every time I go to eat and drink, now. So... honestly not so great.
I am mostly ambivalent, but ... when forgetting to edit the quantity, it's better to have it at a safe 1 (and then fill in the reamining wanted drunkness/fullness later), than to drink/eat too much (which is irreversible).
and I imagine this is better for nubs doing the first few quests the first time out - gives them a bit of a safety margin to not over eat/drink and then have to figure out how to get hurt to take the meds.
