This is excacly what made put the DOS2 down after 10 hours of gameplay. COMMON LARIAN THIS LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE A DOS2 INVENTORY!
So many items and item types everything becomes pointless and non essential. Magic stuff feel bland and non unique. Scrolls everywhere, magic swords everywhere... Over 600 food items, and dozens and dozens of cariable of barrels?? WTF Larian. Tidy up your items.
Its not question that <well, If you dont want it, dont pick it up!> Its just that there is so much useless crap stuff out there, AND WE KNOW THIS BY DEFAULT, it makes playing the game totally pointless. Ive got unlimited scrolls, and food, and can get ANY magic items I want...this destroys the atmosphere and OVERDOES what is and inst believable. You SHOULD NOT be able to carry hundreds of items.
I actually LIKE the restriction you had in BG2. 16 slots + 15 including your wearable and quick items. Its ELEGANT, its BELIEVABLE, it makes THINK on what you might need. At worst case you still had bottomless bags and scroll cases anyways. It just felt so much easier and special to have items.
Oh and the BG2 inventory screen just destroys BG3 in style and ease of use. Fix the UI!
