Summary0001842: Extra-slot-containers should be in front in inventory to minimize row count
DescriptionReported by o11c.
Interaction menu, inventory tab: currently the rows have a fixed height. So if one container is in the row, the row will always have a height of 2 items even though the empty lower space will not be filled by items.

Changing that probably needs some adjustments in the engine code that puts together the grid layout.

However this is sensible because it minimized the row count in the inventory menu (and probably meets the expectation that scripters have of the grid layout anyway).
Steps To ReproduceTake bucket and a few different other items in your hand. Open inventory menu (E) on small enough screen. Bucket will be sorted to the back. Space could be used better.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hi! There's been a check-in that references this bug. For more information you can visit the repository browser at this address:

Script GUI: added TightGridLayout style (requirement of 0001842)

The TightGridLayout fills spaces more aggressively. This is slower but makes for a tighter layout. Finding the best layout is NP-complete. This here is just O(N^2) or so.

Contents menu: use tight grid layout (0001842)

This makes extra-slot containers not block an extra row anymore. However, they might jump around a bit. It might be a good idea to set their priority lower to make them always appear first.
When they would be in front, the tight grid layout would likely not move them around.


Zapper (developer)

The contents menu now uses a tighter layout and the extra-slot containers are not at the back of the list anymore (but instead like all other items, sorted by value). This miiight lead to objects jumping around.

If that is the case (and if that is annoying), the extra-slot containers could be moved to the front. Then, the tight layout would probably not move them around.

Let's test and see!

I've never seen any trouble with this. We can reopen this, if any ever appears.
