Borderlands 3: Ultimate Inventory Management Edition
BL3UIME for short.
Includes such new and exciting features as:
- Save your favorite gear combos to custom load outs!
- The bank doesn’t reset every time you load a game!
- Search, sort, and filter items like never before!
- Send items from the battle field to the bank!
- Discover gear you didn’t know you had!
- Find that favorite gun in seconds flat!
- Have more than two tag functions!
- Sell items directly from the bank!
- Compare multiple items at once!
And much, much more! Over one billion optimizations!
Edit: Oh! Maybe, like, a “Suggest Replacement” function, for when I’ve got five Shreddifiers in my bank and I’d like to compare them all at a glance, or if there’s one that’s a level or a Mayhem level ahead of what I’ve got equipped.
Sorry, it’s just that I have to clear out my bank, and the thought of sorting through 380 old, outdated, but not quite useless items is not… I don’t look forward to it.
Please Gearbox? Let me not spend an hour going through my gear to pick the treasure from the trash.
In the one in a million chance that GBX sees this and decides to respond to it, what changes, features, or optimizations would you like to see to BL3’s inventory management system? It’s such a small thing, but it really could change the game for the better.
Edit: Since this is getting some attention, I’d like to expound on the problem, so that maybe, again, on the off chance that a developer sees this, they know what needs fixing.
It can be a pain in the butt to do anything related to the inventory system.
When I go into my bank I’ve got 380 items. Many of those items are visually identical, but perform extremely differently, and what that item is good for sometimes comes down to a single number, a single word, a single line of text, or a combination thereof. Finding the exact weapon I need can involve scrolling through a dozen or more nearly identical (or even literally identical if I haven’t cleaned my bank in a while) pieces of gear, looking for the one that has a different word on it. Then, as I continue building my loadout, I have to repeat that whole process for the next gun, and the next, and the next, and the shields, and the grenades, and the COMs, and the artifacts, putting together a whole 50 item kit can require looking through several hundred pieces of gear, (or, if you’re like me, and you often misread the tool tip on first glance, thousands of pieces of gear, some two or three times).
Exacerbating this problem is the fact that the bank sorts poorly, and doesn’t group similar guns together. The dozen Kaosons I’ve collected are spread out over twenty bank slots, making side by side comparisons difficult and unwieldy.
There is no easy way to find my 200% Cryo anoint.
There is no easy way for me to sort my M6 and M10 gear.
There is no easy way for me to compare and tag four nearly identical shields.
There is no easy way for me to flip through a dozen Cutsmans looking for the right combination of element, anointment, level, and Mayhem level.
Imagine you had a sack, a big burlap sack.
Then let’s imagine that you had 380 bottles of medication.
Let’s pretend that anytime you want to take your medicine you have to sort through a burlap sack of 379 nearly identical bottles of medication.
“Oh no deary, this is Vitamin D3 250iu, I needed two Vitamin D3+CalMag 250iu, they’re in identical bottles, the pills look identical except that one has a black dot on the front and the other has a black dot on the back; don’t bother marking the bottles, I’ll wash your marks off before you open the sack again.”
Our bank is a burlap sack, we need something better than that. Thanks for reading my post.
