  • [S] Chests , Folders and Organization

    We are only a month or two since Workshop got released and we have loads of items. What will happen later? More pages?

    Why not allow players who opened a certain hero chest , to use that as a folder to that hero's items and locked boxes. For example , If I have loads of items for Axe. and I decided to buy a key to open Axe's chest. the chest I open for Axe is reusable as a folder icon for Axe's items. Now I can drag and drop axe stuff in it. Maybe that chest can only hold # items.

    • You can organize your items into different opened chests
    • Rename chests
    • Special event chest boxes , can store other stuff.
    • You can keep the cool looking chest boxes (For this guy)
    • Instead of the key vanishing , let the key return to you as "used". With a tag on what item that key got you! , you might want to keep it for it being lucky or it came from a special event.
    • Maybe you could recharge that key , by buying another key of the same type and combining that with your used key. (Stack tags on your key to show off how lucky you are)
    • Chests too can hold the tag of what item you got from it , but this can be removed if you wish.
    • Chest boxes as a workshop item , people can buy a chest box or for free other than the basic set. Also submit new models for chest boxes.
    • Use chests as gift boxes , wrapped with red ribbon for example instead of keys. For giveaways and friends.

    • Downloaded replays as items.
    • Use these chests to store Replays of matches and Organize these replays. Example: Rename a chest box "April 2012 replays".

    Possibly game breaking? no idea
    • Equip a chest box , to be viewed as the chest box that gets dropped when you put an item on the ground.

    Valve point of view
    • Encourages people to try out chests , lure factor.
    • More people buying keys not just for items.
    • Chest boxes appearing and browsable through your steam inventory (show off part).

    I like the idea of the boxes working as subfolders for specific heroes. Even sorting items by hero at the moment looks a bit messy.

    The cosmetic and show off parts do not harm so they're okay too.

      I'd love to have more space and better means of organization (which will seem far more needed once there's a larger variety of hero cosmetics) but forcing the sale of chests to get space is the wrong way to go about it.

        ^ sure , maybe have a chance of getting empty chests at the end of the game. At the end it is Valve's call.
