Short Drop

Let people carry multiple iterations of the same items

6 posts in this topic

May I ask why can't I carry two berettas if I find them? Or two rolls of bandages? Or anything more than once?

If the answer has something to do with "so that people don't hoard all the resources for themselves", may I point out that there's nothing that you can do to prevent that anyway? A wasteful, selfish or hoarding player can do so anyway in a variety of ways. If I have a beretta and I find another one, and I am unable to pick it up because I already have one, that doesn't prevent me from being selfish, I can just unload mine, throw it away and take a new one, so to have all ammo and leave nothing to the others. If I have a medkit and find another one, if I want to be selfish, I can just heal myself even if I am missing only 1HP and still take the new medkit for myself.

It doesn't really make sense especially now that you can have two iterations of the same weapons if it's slightly different variation (Sako, M16, Ruger 10/12, SKS).

Being able to carry multiple iterations of a certain items add realism (because you CAN do that in real life) and freedom to the game (let ME decide what I carry, if I have space for it).

Can we get that? Pretty please?

Even though it doesn't completely eliminate hoarding it's still helpful. It'd be way too easy for somebody to have 8 pills in their inventory jacking off in a corner while laughing at all of the people dying of infection.

It shouldn't be in the game's scope to babysit players and make sure they "behave". Otherwise, why is there friendly fire? Shouldn't they remove that too then, so that people aren't dicks to each other?

If this is a hardcore, unforgiving zombie apocalypse survival game, it should abstain from this petty level of hand-holding, it's unnecessary, the experience doesn't have to be guaranteed to be "fair", it's supposed to be brutal, in a real life situation you can have selfish or wasteful people and that's part of what you have to deal with in order to survive.

And like I said, it's flawed, you can be selfish, wasteful or a troll in so many other ways that just implementing this limitation just breaks realism. What if I am playing alone, or the only player left alive, why can't I carry two bottles of pills, why can't I have to glocks if I find them? I can carry 5 handguns but only if they are all different? I can carry two huge Sako rifles because hey there's a scope on one and not on the other one, totally okay then, but not two pair of bandages? Makes no sense.

Leave it up to the players. The game is about cooperation but it has to come from the players, not instigated by the game. Ensuring a fair share of the encountered resources should be up to the players, to cooperate or perish, the game itself should abstain from this kind of parenting.

While I agree a lot on the game being much more brutal and much more hardcore, trust me the game will only be more retarded than it is if this would be a thing. I can bet my entire bank account on that.

Always pick the lesser of two evils.

I agree with Short Drop here. Not being able to carry 2 or more of the same item is unrealistic and makes item management more troublesome than necessary. You should be able to carry ANY item you have space for, duplicates or not. 

I understand some people may prefer the inventory mechanics to remain the same, due to hording, but there should at least be a server option to allow carrying 2+ of the same item. I have only played NMRiH with friends, so hording isn't an issue for me and the teams I play on.   

PS, I just started playing NMRiH a month ago and I must say it's amazing!
