Interaction times for different item locations

Recommended Posts


Getting an item out of a backpack is way too quick. A good game is about making tactical decisions that have a real effect on outcomes. It should take longer to put away to or retrieve an item from your backpack than just stuffing an item into a pocket or vest pouch. Alternatively, accessing the backpack should take a bit of time. Once the bag is opened the time to use or retrieve an item could take a normal amount of time to even be relatively quick and easy. You could even go so far as to have a full, stuffed-to-the-brim backpack take longer to use than a mostly empty one.

In conclusion, using an item from pants pockets or vest pouches should be considerably faster than from a backpack.
