[Feature Request] Rotate items in inventory
New, WishlistPublic


Making things fit in your inventory can prove to be quite a hassle sometimes. In real life objects don't have a default orientation and it feels unnatural to be restricted by this in DayZ.

Allow rotation of items. This of course would only be necessary for objects that take an unequal amount of horizontal/vertical slots. Rotating could be done by selecting the option from the right-click menu, but another idea would be to rotate upon right-click when the item is being dragged. This would be quite a natural way of interacting: You grab something, rotate it, and put it back in your backpack/pants etc... This is also the way that would require the least amount of actions by the player.

This may cause one problem: Items that don't fit any more after rotating. This can be resolved by not allowing the rotation and dragging to take place if that is the case.

I'm wondering if DayZ devs will eventually implement this down the line? It doesn't really make sense to not be able to rotate a rifle and making it fit in a container that has the amount of slots available.

If this was implemented, I think guns might be forced to get bigger otherwise you would be able to shove rifles into Mountain Backpacks.
