Storing dirt
Why isn't storing dirt as simple as storing any other resource?

It would be nice if when terraforming we could just drag a pile of dirt from our bag directly into a storage bin in an inventory building.

To store dirt as above we currently have to:
put our backpack/bin on the ground and open it
open the storage building and drag the bin with the dirt onto our back
drag the dirt from our storage into the storage on our back
drag that back into the storage building and
close and re-equip our backpack/bin.

Can the storing dirt be changed to work the same as other resources ie a simple drag and drop?

It's only putting dirt into storage that is the problem as taking it out works like every resource.

Yes I would also prefer managing dirt like any other resource :)

Dirt was meant to not leave your back pack or bin so that you'd have to use the dirt that you obtain digging.

The method you describe is a trick really ;-)

I do want to change this and simply have dirt stored in a special separate slot and not in bins at all. I'll mark this as accepted as it should change one way or another.
