hey guys i just got an idea out of nowhere
sorry didnt check if it is taken
but i think maybe you should only be able to pick up blocks when ur holding E or some other button
because some people try to drop an item and accidently pick it back up and stuff like that

Thats why you make an incinerator in your base with lava and throw it in that

No, simply because the amount of items that I do want to pick up vastly (and I really mean vastly) outnumbers the amount of items that I don't want to pick up. I would be holding the button for pretty much the whole game.

Yes, that's partly my point. Even if you pick up something that you don't want, it only takes a few seconds to get rid of it.

However, there's a lot of times where I want to pick something up, so again, I would be holding down that button almost all the time.

Maybe, have it in options. Mostly because I just horde everything I get. I physically can't stand seeing items left on the floor!

I'm a item whore :)

I've never had this problem. If I want rid of something I hit "Q" and no more problem. If I keep picking it up I just leave it in my inventory. I wouldn't cry if this was brought in, but I certainly wouldn't cry if it wasn't. Seems like too finicky a thing to bother with a menu option for.

Invert it, if you hold a key (Not E, millions still use the default key for inventory), you wont pick up an item.
Possibly a toggle.
^ This, I'd like as option

That seems much more reasonable than the original post. Cause if you had to hold down a certain key to pick up an item, I'd forget and not collect several blocks worth of iron before I'd remember, say "CRAP!" and ragequit.

My inventory is I. Anyway, just no. More keys to press to do simple and easy things? No.

you could put your incinerator right under your 'junk-chest' and then just destroy the chest in about 2 seconds...
