    Extremely hard to pick up items over dead bodies

    Post by FrkShltStorm on Mon Jan 05, 2015 2:08 pm

    If you kill someone it takes at least 30 seconds before all items can actually be picked up... even after the body has been picked up first; cause the size is 2x bigger than other items and has top priority for some reason... it will bug regardless for a few of the items.

    Fix Plz

    Yah I've noticed after the thing kills someone if he moves overtop of the body immediately and morphs he will be unable to pick up items other than the body. If any body is near any item at any time, and you attempt to right click the item it will change what you clicked on to be the body. Very unfortunate, fixing would be nice.

    Yeh, I have noticed this, it has something to do with the blood I think.

    This has been an issue for ages. I think that Vic should make a priority system, where in a pile Grenades will be picked first, then Molotovs, then Medkits, then bodies...If that's a do-able thing.

    but what if you don't want Grenades? what if your looking for a medkit to heal? I feel like it should be spread out when a body dies, or that you can't stack items near other items so that you can pick

    That is true, but usually they are spread out enough that only about one item lands on the marine. But yea, you're probably right, that'd be a better plan.

    I agree. Priority systems just annoy everyone in every way at some point or another. *cough* Throw *cough*

    Having the items spread out would fix a lot of issues and make it easier for people to go after what they wanted. Have you ever been the thing, killed someone, tried to pick up their nades to throw at the marines following you and instead end up grabbing a medkit a wrench a radio along with their body making you unable to pick us their made? I know I have. And it sucks with the current body priority even more.

    I think all items dropped on death should be spread out, but bodies should stay in the same place as now so it doesn't mess up. With the priority fix of course. Too much lately have I tried to grab a dead guys nades and end up getting other items allowing some randy cadet to steal them. REVOLT!

    And plz ignore retarded statements lol I'm on my phone and it's glitching out. I can only see the last word Ive typed so my whole post probably isn't unified.

    I agree, that moment when someone tks that poor marine and you don't have a medkit but he did on his body and you can't pick it up.......and u think your gonna get it in time but the same dude throws a molotov on the body killing him......Sad
