Arguably the worst thing to happen to EQ

    Who in their right mind thought it would be funny to ruin the inventory UI? I am absolutely not going to be paying for 2 expansions per year just to make my inventory look like it should ($36/year for stupid perks, $34/year for expansion). You caught me just as my krono ran out too, I may not even claim my next krono until this crap gets fixed, it's actually unbelievable that you essentially force anyone that cares about their UI to either go 3rd party to fix the 2 missing inventory slots (btw, anyone got a link to that inventory file?) or pay you money when the old inventory worked just fine. Or, IDK, do something like
    Code:
    if (boughtPerk) newInventoryUI();
     
    else normalInventoryUI();
    Honestly not that hard. Genuine sad state of developers.

    ugh, look at how ugly those 2 slots are that I will never pay for. Gross. Please fix.

    Mebbe that is what this emergency patch is about...

    It literally affects no gameplay, makes room for innovation, and only affects those that open their Inventory to stare at it with their most persnickety glasses on.

    I was wondering how they were going to support adding more inventory spaces. They should put small ads in those boxes if you aren't coughing up the dough to out a bag there.

    Also am i the only one who fills up multiple inventory slots with filler and only use a few bags on most of my characters?

    The worst thing to happen to eq is 2 visible slots you can't use? Drama queen much?

    They could hide slots you can't use through the underlying xml code, but I'm sure this was intentional.

    Definitely tacky. I wonder which buttons they'll cram into the extra real estate to the left.

    You'll get used to it by next patch.

    Huh, I only pay for one expansion a year.


    And perhaps some info you left out -
    • Merchant's Perk – Become one of the greatest merchants of Norrath

    • Enables two additional slots in your inventory.

    These devs don't make sense. I thought Dragon's Hoard was created to help minimize the amount of items constantly be updated for each character.

    UI is trash anyways who cares. Would've been worse, if they stuck to 1.

    Hmm, I only see InvSlot 23 to 33 in the xml, so that's 11 slots.
    Did they miss slot 34 ?
  14. Axel Furry Hats OP

    did... did you read this part: ($36/year for stupid perks, $34/year for expansion)?
  15. Febb Augur

    Wow, you have to pay for those those perks? What do they have on you where you have to pay for them?

    If you have OCD, you'll be forced to buy the Merchant Perk. lol.

    Sorry, no. My apologies, I read the part where you said

    I am absolutely not going to be paying for 2 expansions per year

    A perk is not an expansion. $34 is one expansion.

    And there is nothing to fix. All accounts have the extra 2 slots now in case they want to buy the perk.

    Ugh, I have to pay to get things? What is this a business or something?

    I think his main complaint there was that it looks ugly to have the empty spot where the 2 more bags can go. lol
