I am a huge Hotbar user. Currenly playing D:OS EE again and find the hot bar system inadequate. Some suggestions:

1)Stretch the hot bar up 2 or 3 times shwoing 4 or 5 bars at the same time.

2) Stretch from side to side and use the whole bottom of the screen.

3) Extra bars. Vertically on the left and right side of the screen.

Both of my main characters in D:OS EE have all 5 completely full. Thanx Loved the game.
