Equipment sets or weapon swap

I'd like the ability to swap my active two hands with the two top weapon slots or possibly even the others.

This would be "extremely" useful for hunting since as of right now I'm forced to open my inv, swap 3 weapons around, harvest the animal, open my inv again, swap 3 weapons around again. (weapon+parry offhand swapped for empty hand +knife or empty hand +axe)

This is just painful and bad gameplay when a simple quality of life patch could simply have you swap with your other slots on key press.

If I could press like "r" or something on my keyboard to swap between two sets or even multiple sets from my back that would be super ideal.

More playing the game, less playing with windows..... thats my wifes biggest complaint with this game is so many windows to manage and its hard to disagree.

Actually what I'm thinking of doing is having icon slots for the main tools and weapons that players may need - shovel, pick, knife and weapons.

These would automatically equip when needed. Weapons would automatically equip in combat mode.

That could work, pressing "c" to combat automatically equiping my main weapon and off-hand for parry would be a good feature if those where pre-set item slot in your inv.

And if I can automatically harvest a hunt with the knife on my back in the knife slot hat would be a huge update too and eliminate the need for folks to switch weapons, that would be awesome cuz its annoying.

I thought about this a bit more and a solution may be to just simply remove the "weapon must be in right hand" check.

Make it so as long as its in one of the 2ndary equipment slots that it can use the axe for example for woodcraft.

This way as long as you have axe equiped in axe slot, your guy will swap to axe and chop tree.

this would remove the need for switchable weapon sets since you could in theory just equip the axe to a axe slot and it would automatically use it, removing the need to swap equipment since after you finish cutting the tree you would have your regular equipment on still.

You would need knife too for starting fires and harvest and than your good to go.

You wouldnt need weapon swap sets this way, just a knife or axe equipped to the correct inv slot.
