Safe Spots for keeping a backpack

Hy, i have some thoughts i would like to share. I would like to see a “admin placed backpack hook” that only lets you take the pack if you placed it there before. It might be usefull to limit stored packs per player to prevent abuse.

This would give server owner the ability to create storage room if they wish to do so. Being able to swap or safe a pack would be great to participate in different activities. With the weight system slowing you down it gets more important to be able to store stuff in a safe way.

Maybe let us store filled backpacks in the bank as a easy workoround.The bank is way to small atm.

The “code and db” you would have to implement for the hook could maybe later be used for housing/chests.

Also a “black hole” option triggered with some button code would be great to get rid of trash. The use of the black hole should be recorded so its possible to punish abuse or trolling and to reward ppl that help to keep the server clean.

Oh and btw i might not get your reply cause i am very lazy with reading forum… Thanks for reading and have a nice day.

Cheers

People have been asking for more storage forever. The devs intent seems to be to limit storage more because they don’t want users hoarding and doing all jobs. They want lumberjacks to cut trees and chefs to cook stews and only carry the tools and items relevant to the profession.

I would personally be for safe-storage of one empty backpack in your lockbox, perhaps taking up a slot in there. This would probably give the specialised bags more use, as I have yet to see anyone seriously using them.

I think storing empty bags in the lockbox would be fine, filled ones on the other hand would allow users to have 54 storage slots in total using 9 slot backpacks.

Well nearly every time backpack’s have been suggested to be able to be put in the lock box in some way it’s been one slot like Fyre was saying, but still even if it was one non empty one that would more than double the space with is quite a lot either way, though I don’t know how stack sizes and the lockbox work so it might be different.

might be easiest to just allow empty pack storage and double the lockbox docks. the current 6 slots is a little too tight even if youre only storing profession specific stuff, expecially since a lot of people tend to split their skills between two different trees. The large stack multipliers in there arent nearly as useful as a couple additional slots would be. i dont want to safeguard 500 wood. but i would like to store a variety of unstackable gear

Pls keep in mind: it is not so much about increasing bag size but more about giving admin the opportunity to do events where it us usefull to store everything a player has. F.e. if there is a race the organiser might want to even out the weight issue… So again it would be a feature not so much for the player but for a variety of events on an active server. It would make it “useless” to use an alternate account for a race.

If somebody is assigned to guard the backpacks of the players involved in the race and kill anyone who tries to steal, it would allow the race to be properly conducted. There is no need to change the game for the sake of player organised events when the issue can be remedied easily using the tools we have.

Heck, if you have an admin then you could have them put the backpacks out of reach, though they might need some tools for that.

More admin tools will always be better than making the game easier imo.

I think being able to save a bag in the locker would be a good addition.
Normally, I’d travel with my normal backpack, with some food, with some ores, with some tools.
But, when I go mining (as miner), I want to take my mining bag. What do I do with my “leisure” backpack?

I’m pretty sure we’ll be able to store backpacks when housing makes it into the game. That’ll be the safest way for it to happen IMO, + it means that other backpacks will gain viability (woodcutting & mining backpacks, specifically)

I’m sure backpack storage will be implemented when house building goes live anyway, I mean why would you have a house if you can’t safely store your gear there? A weapons rack would be nice too!

When I thought of a “space for backpacks” in lock boxes, I thought of having a space where you can place 1 empty backpack (or it’s variants) and having the 6 slots shoved to the side. It would be easier to feel more secure about your barrel backpack that way.
