We all know there's gonna be the Ring Inventory back. It's been confirmed. Since there's gonna be an inventory, I doubt it's gonna be "Carry one gun only" like in Legend.

So I was thinking something in between. Reduce frustration and add challenge at the same time. In the inventory we could carry a certain amount of items. Like Rocket launcher takes up most space in it, so might have to discard a medipack or 2 to make it fit.


Of course Items like, Keys, Scions, etc... won't have to take up any space. This is only for Weapons, Medipacks, Flares/Batteries for LED, Grenades and other gadgets.

If you don't know what i mean, check out the briefcase in Resident Evil 4.

As unlockables we could expand the backpack instead of outfits with different colors.

It's a cool idea, but I prefer the infinite backpack in TR :)

It's similar to the inventory in Deus Ex 1, Diablo, NWN, etc. It's more common for RPG. I think it would be better if Lara carried two pistols in her holsters, Magnums - tucked up in her belt from in front, Uzis - tucked up in her belt from behind, and the shotgun - behind the back. I still think, that the idea of having a bottomless backpack is bad - there's no need making the game even easier.
P. S. I completed TR3 recently - throughout the whole game I used only three small medpacks.

infinite medipacks for sure....i had to cheat on infinite medipacks for the 1st TR game...i would not have got through it if it were not for them....a pain in legend with only 3 medipacks...those bloody crates that were on fire in the england level...they ate medipacks......yep infinite is good

I think it is a good idea. I just don't like an expanded backpack as an unlockable though. Seems a bit dull IMO.

I know there are people who used no medpacks at all and completed the game with only the use of pistols (TR 1-3) and when needed used telescopic sight (TR 4-5).
Theses are their words: "why do you need medpacks at all?".

My thought is that Tomb Raider has always been a game of skill. I know people that play the game that run through hazards without a care in the world, then just use a medipack. You really shouldn't need that many medipacks. If I used 2 in Legend I would be amazed... The limited back pack is a feature that I particularly like as it makes the game a bit more difficult. Maybe CD could have an unlimited backpack in the Easy setting only? That would make sense to me...

Infinitive backpack is good idea.In TRL we can have only one rifle and I don't like this.Maby this is more realistic but infinitive backpack is better.

yeah, tis nice, but hows about if you discard an item/object, you can come back and pick it up later say like when you rid yourself of the rocket launcher when you run out of rockets...

I made the suggestion for infinite back pack space (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=63827) here a while ago :P


All'z good, i like the idea about it.

Yes.I'd like to fight with enemies without weapon.
I think that Lara shouldn't be so bulletprof.

Although its not a bad it's not a bad idea it reminds of the horrible idea of having remove stuff from my harddisk to save space !
