Thanks for the thoughts and ideas here. I’m currently thinking about an idea which adds context boxes (or just uses the current tool-tips) to add a listing of actions you can do which then completely fixes human errors in input, but also provides support for tablet/mobile. This also provides a way for me to expand the set of actions on items, which is sorely needed for water. For example on Desalinated Water in Glass Bottle:
- Pour or Drop
- Empty Glass Bottle
I would probably still have double click and right click bound the the first two actions (how it is now), but a context menu could definitely help. Here’s an example for a Iron Spear:
- Equip (Left Hand)
- Equip (Right Hand)
As you can see, I can even start adding in new forms of interactions and shortcuts to the player.
