Hey everyone, one of the biggest petty annoyances I have is simple tools taking up an inventory slot when using it. Hammers, chisels, fishing gear, when you want to do something fast it gets in the way, banking is slower because you don't want to deposit all, and you lose one or more potential inventory spot to what I consider an outdated mechanic.

 

I suggest the following items, but not limited to to be able to be equippable with the same functionality as the item in your bags

 

  • Hammer
  • Chisel
  • Knife
  • Spade
  • Fishing equipment
  • Shield slot saw for construction
  • Shears
  • Pestle and Mortor
  • All farming equipment.

 

I would not give any of the items combat stats, and items like the spade would look smaller and different than the treasure trail variant. That or equippable tools could be a treasure trail reward.

 

That is my quick idea, what do you think?

Well there's the tool belt on RS3 which allows you to have certain items such as these and they take neither inventory or equipment slots. Very similar, slightly more convenient. Why not just have that transferred over to OSRS?

I agree with spoon. Assuming this passes the player poll - why not do it properly? Or is this 'simplyfing the game too much' altogether? Honestly I think this would be cool regardless for aesthetic outfit-creation or experimentation reasons lol.

But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

I personally wouldn't mind it although I don't think it'd pass the poll. Whenever it's suggested on like threads or rsforums, seems to have at least half/majority of the people seem to not want it added.

As for the OSmods stances on it, even though this Q&A was almost a year ago, they seemed to shut down the idea pretty quick. On another Q&A 2 years ago or so, when someone asked for the Coin Pouch, they said "It useful, but it's a very big developers job. It's a similar situation to the toolbelt issue."

From what they said previously, they had to rewrite everything that uses a tool on the toolbelt/is equipped on your character, which is why it's highly unlikely to see those on OSRS.

I guess then that Manga's idea is a happy compromise? Specifically, winning these from (Easy) TTs? Perhaps if they were untradeable too it wouldn't bother the community as much.

It came up in this weeks livestream and they said the same thing, basically when you do something that requires a hammer the game searches for the hammer in your inventory not for a hammer on your character so they'd have to go through everything in the game that uses all these tools and change the code.

I wanted to avoid the toolbelt since I wanted the items to be more tangible, not that I don't like the RS3 toolbelt. I think this works better for oldschool.

I'd like to see it done.

Builds off of the whole being able to wield harpoons in the game to fish so why not expand it a little bit to other skills.

I forgot about barb-tailed harpoons. Why not build on that and let players create equivalents for the other tools providing they have the right skilling requirements? Isn't this another way to bypass the 'search' issue?

I would rather see them put their dev time into something else personally. Although I did enjoy the tool belt back in RS3 when I still played that.

Would be really nice, this reminds me of when stealing creation came into the game and how one of the benefits of having the items was the fact that you could wield them as you used them.
