I wouldn’t be opposed to such an interim hack. For the idea I linked in my previous post, I actually envisioned it as being a piece of Great Engineer tech off the Aethermeter (similar to the map) that players could drag certain items to for storage to get them off the chain, and then to drag them back on the chain as a prelude to using them.
For example, let’s say I’m going to the Snowmoors today. I put Ice, Plasma Globes, and Cactus Flowers, Fur, and Science Papers, etc on the chain. I take my Radio Beacons and Servos and my Superchargers off the chain because I don’t need them. It would be either a mod on the game’s drag and drop interface, or a new one. headscratch Depends on how much of a mess the existing code is. I won’t assume I know how hard that would be for you to program in. (The worst?)
We’ve already seen Aether used in crafting and Aether used to transform one item to another, so using it to store items in a hammer space doesn’t seem out of order for me. shrugs
