If auto pickup is off, when gathering can items fall onto the square you are on? this would simplify mining when a lot of dross and carry weight is generated.
together with the ‘current square inventory’ I mentioned elsewhere, this would work nicely – I could see what I wanted on the ground and grab that out of the current square inventory.
Also, can shift click drop to current square instead of adjacent? this avoids a little dance when placing sets of heavy objects, e.g. when constructing a furnace that requires me to gather more than I can carry.
I think a good option for this would be to add another option called “Drop Gathered Items On Ground”. Unfortunately “Shift+Right Click” is a reserved command for Firefox which is why I am using Ctrl+ for events. There’s always Alt+ though heh.
