On ranged weapons, consider a button similar to the Upcast on spells, that would allow you to select between the two equipped ammunitions.

@Thaladar : I cannot see the images here. 

Personally, opening the inventory and clicking on my two ammo sets was easy for me, but it would make sense as a feature beside the weapon switch UI.

Wow.  Forums that make it this difficult to embed images shouldn't be allowed.  Maybe the links will work since the forums won't allow pasting, uploading or linking to google or any image hosting sites.

I believe this would streamline switching ammo allowing it directly from the main interface vs going into the inventory and switching it there.

It is *not* that the forum does not allow it : it is that the forum system (code) cannot interpret an image if it does not end with a known extension, like .jpg, .png, etc.  Google does not offer a direct image link, but instead a particular Google page, so the forum does not see an image. 

  • Your links to Google work as such in your post above (why do you say they are not allowed?) ;
  • Links to image hosting sites work (it will only show the image if you use the Insert Image icon [Ctrl+p] and a true image link)

NOTE : this is true of all forums on the Internet. Web links that do not end with a known multimedia extension will not be recognized.  Exceptions are tools that can interpret a Youtube page for example.

I use the free image hosting service imgurl and use the direct link that ends with .jpg or .png etc.
Here is a past example :

Thanks for the information.  Still painfully hard to put a simple image in. Drag and drop, direct upload, paste image would all be easier than having to upload to a 3rd party image hosting site, snagging the direct image url instead of the page and pasting it in as a link.  But whatever. It isn't work doing any more images.  I'm not sure the developers are even looking at this feedback.

I agree it could be simpler.

Just adding the links works fine also if TA wants to see more. 

Currently, an employee checks the forums for bug reports. Solasta, I believe, is in the end of its life cycle, meaning that I do not think they will make changes to the UI, base system, etc. I could be wrong.  They added some content and fix bugs.
