So i'll just get to the point quickly: You know that tablets have more hotbar icons than smaller mobile devices? Well i had this idea that we could have like a slider in the options to change the amount of icons, let's say between 3 and 7 or 8 icons. I personally play on an iphone and it's sometimes annoying that i can have only 3 items at a time in the bar.

Please leave replys and tell me your opinition!

EDIT: Yeah and if you like this idea twee about it to @kappische

I know there is an Android mod for this, but not one yet for iOS. I would love to see this on iOS devices, as you sometimes need more than three slots! :)

This make me wonder, why does it have more slots?
My partner has an xperia play and specs and screen size
Wise it's not much different from my Android phone. Is there a specific reason behind it?

Heres the problem with all this. Im using an xperia play also, and its understandable why that has the 8 slots, since the buttons you need are OFF-SCREEN. Now imagine it all on screen on a tiny screen. There can only be two things happening here, and their both problematic:

1)You make all the icons small to fit between the controls, thus making it even more impossible to switch items
2)The icons go through the dpad and other controls, thus making the dpad conflict with the first few slots either side of things.

And keep in mind that the game looks the same on any screen, unless its a tablet, only the version changes depending on the device. Otherwise, it reconizes the device as a tablet and gives it the 8 slots from the xperia play, since tablets have a much bigger screen, thus giving you more breathing room for controls and stuff.

yep, I'm the same. That's why I think an option would be a good idea.
So we could choose between 3 - 6 slots. Even with the controls on screen I think I can
Handle at least 6 slota, but if not we have an option. 5 is better
Then 3

I like OP's post in some ways, but in some ways dont like it. For example, the having to go to options would be pesky. Id rather it be just a slider below the 3 slots turning into 8, like scrolling. That's just my opinion, but I do mostly like your post jaagzz! :D
