Difficult to pick up objects
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When i see an object on the ground is too difficult to take it. I have to go up and down near it to display the menu "take the....".
I think the area of selection of the objects is too small. {F28359} {F28360}

if you are close enough or just above them you can press tab and they should appear in the window of the left. the one it says proximity

Yeah, they should make a shortcut key to take whatever is below you.

Same for items on some high shelves etc maybe a larger area of the items grab radius?

Yes especially with a "headlamp" it seems to be difficult to get that to come up in Vicinity. The take command is usually much easier to use for this object.

Now i use the "TAB Method", as suggested by Piter Reed, but i think it would be better to click directly on the item.

Vicinity-method is really small and you got to be within 20 cm of the object. I hav eabsolutely no problem picking stuff up, just point at the object with your aiming-dot. But please note that the "Take" command does not show up when you already have that item, or in a better state (like cloths, guns or shoes).

my only issue is with items under the bed and above closets and what not, tried proning, crouching and TAB they dont show up. However sometimes i get the take item, but with that you can put whatever other items you in your pockets in the one you trying to exchange for.

makes looting from killed players very hard.

yeah couldn't grab a gun under a bed like if I had t rex arms.

It is hard to grab a lot of items under stuff or in the back corner of a bed or other object. If you right click zoom at it you can usually say Take Object but that is it... Very clunky.

Yes yes very anoying for objects in high places...

Dropped a mosin near a sidewalk and it took me about 5 min to recover it. There was only one "special" position which allowed to grab the item. Even the "Tab method" didn't work. (see pictures above)
I think it was also a consequence of the small selection-area.

This is one of the most annoying problems with the user interface in my opinion. Hopefully they label this with a fairly high priority to address. Thanks for highlighting the issue.

The same happens in the ship wrack. In the small cabins sometimes there are boots on one of the cupboards and you cant get near enough to fetch them. No matter which method you use (tab or mouse pointer).

Having trouble picking up a portable gas lamp = not showing on vicinity and very hard to pick up.
