The collections thread got me to thinking about an issue I remember having with EQ and wonder if anyone else had any thoughts on it. Whenever I found an unknown item, I hated to throw it away because I had no idea if it might be something I would need later. So I built up quite a collection of items in my inventory and there were times when I would have to search through it for several minutes just to find the one thing I was looking for. I tried to organize my stuff as best I could, but it wasn't easy.
I was thinking it would be nice if there was some kind of inventory system that would make it easy to find what you're looking for in a matter of seconds rather than minutes. In EQ, they had different size bags that would allow you to stick small things in small bags and large items in large bags and I tried to do that as much as possible in order to shorten the search. But it could still be tedious at times.
I wonder if they could give pouches different names in order to help you find something more quickly. For instance, a "trinkets" bag that you would only stick really small items in so it would narrow the search. Or perhaps better yet, a system that allowed you to label your bags yourself, such as "weapons", "collections" and "unknown items", so you could hopefully go right to the correct one right off.
One thing I would not be in favor of is having an item fully identified the moment you find it. That would be unrealistic and take too much of the mystery out of finding items. Knowing whether or not something might be useful to you in the future should require some investigation and it probably leads to more interaction between players to boot.
