I really hate how thievery is "balanced". It does not feel fun, it feels like work. I can't steal any gear because it has a stolen tag which will be found, I can steal stuff that can be stacked, but why waste your limited stealing on that? Instead it is better to try and take money (once because you can steal from the same person again) and even then, I have to sit there and wait for the NPC to go through the whole "I HAVE BEEN ROBBED!!!", and THEN go through the whole show and dance to let them search me. EVERY-SINGLE-TIME. Let me repeat, stealing is not fun, but you HAVE to steal if you want to actually buy anything because everything is stupidly expensive.
