This reminds me of another thing Destiny does right. Legendary drops that you don’t pick up (because you didn’t see it or couldn’t fit it) are sent to your mailbox back in town. I guess your mailbox can fill up but I try to keep that empty.
How that could translate to borderlands? again, the concept of being able to send something straight to your bank or a mailbox in town would be great. I don’t know what the system would be for when your mailbox or bank fills up, but there’s probably something that would work out decently.
Along the lines of remembering all variations of stuff I’ve received, I think I understand what someone was suggesting. When you spawn a vehicle you configure your choices, then it renders and shows something. That could be a method of pulling stuff from your gun bank/archive.
And I’ve always been a fan of legendary item rescue too. If the game is going to drop something awesome/rare, then it would be nice if it didn’t just fly off a cliff. Or even if it did, that it would be sent to you anyhow. And for those cases when you drop something, intending for it to hit the floor and it gets buried in a rock or under the floor, yes, please respawn it next to me. Sure I guess that could be a little harder to detect than “item falls into the void”, but maybe not.
