While inventory management might not be at the top of everyone's most-anticipated expansion features, CCP
is going to lengths to drum up enthusiasm for EVE Online's
upcoming inventory overhaul. In a new dev diary
, the changes coming with the Retribution
expansion are laid out in excruciating detail.
When players get their hands on Retribution
, they'll find a much more streamlined inventory experience. The windows will persist longer, performance time will improve by leaps and bounds, the system will be easier to use, a compact view will be introduced, and there will be multiple ways to access one's inventory. Even something as small and mundane as the scroll bars are being revamped.
The devs are also adding an intuitive feature to allow players an easy way to loot wrecks either all at once or one at a time based on whether or not the index tree is expanded.
