Double click to combine - apply the code to other items?!?

    I love the fact that you can combine the baits uses into one item.
    By double clicking the bait and targeting the same type of bait the uses combine and the extra is removed from the game.
    Ingenious! When people catch on this will reduce the item count on all baits significantly and keep it fairly low!
    SOOO...
    Why not move or apply this code onto other items as well?
    Tools pop to mind, take a regular sewing kit and combine it with another to increase the uses on the original and delete the other.
    They seem to have the code done properly so less room for exploiting.
    Much like when you try to target a different kind of bait, it won't allow you to combine them.
    Thus if you double clicked a special sewing kit (barbed runic for example) and tried targeting a different type of sewing kit (regular or lesser runic for example) it would not allow it, just like the bait code.

    And not just sewing kits, all tools!
    Tinker tools, tongs, blow pipes, etc.

    It could have the effect of reducing item count and maintaining this reduced item count.

    Imagine combing 5 sturdy shovels to 1 sturdy shovel with 1000 uses.
    Imagine taking those 10 dull copper runics you have lying around waiting to use and combinging them into 1 dull copper runic with 500 uses.

    It just seems to me that this is interesting code and can be used elsewhere.

    Item count is not really a problem for the servers anymore.
    As for players, there needs to be incentive to buy those nice storage upgrade codes.
    :p

    Sounds good, but someone surely will come up with a way to exploit this...

    Storage increases don't affect character bags, I see no need to carry 5+ saws just to create a whole load of furniture. Let me make a 1000 use Saw, Even if they want 100 ingots to make it.

    Crafted tools can have double durability than bought ones.

    I like the idea for the shovals and all, kind of reminds me of the one you get on test center. 30,000 uses to me is fantastic and look at all the lock downs you clean up!!!

    Man I could clean up some serious space.
