    * Implement a title collection where you just pick the title you want to use out of the collection menu.

    * Chair collection. Tradeable chairs can be removed from the collection (though I doubt Nexon's ability to actually implement this, not gonna lie) to trade them. Just open the collection, same way as medal/title collection and pick the one you want to use. Make it so that you can still hotkey chairs in your collection.

    * Implement a wallet item (or just a wallet tab I guess) that holds all coins/currency items

    * Add large (16 slots or more) equipment bags (short term solution to event equips) until we get a better solution for dealing with too many untradable event equips

    THE QUEEN BEE EVENT IN HENE WILL WASTE A SPOT IN YOUR INVENTORY DO NOT KILL MULTIPLE TIMES. I killed queen bee twice on my main thinking I would be able to just recycle the NX useless stuff they give out for killing the bee. Instead, the item does not show up under the recycle bin options when you click, and the NX stuff is 30 day. Basically, it's going to take one of my spots up for 30 days x 2 spots because I killed twice before I checked if I could recycle.

    ALSO Night Lords and Night Walkers have to use stars, often many sets (I have 12) in order to not have to spend their entire character's life inside a potion shop recharging stars. WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE to make it fair for once and give those two characters a star bag or something in order to NOT WASTE 12 SLOTS EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE? It is incredibly frustrating that there are only two classes really that have to deal with this, and it is a common sensical problem that hasn't yet been solved.

    LAST, I think the coins from all the events are lame to carry around too, especially with commerci currency, gollux pennies and coins, ra coins both chaos and regular, magnus coins both hard and normal as well. My suggestion is to just have the coins expire if they're event coins so I don't have a coin in my inventory forever, clogging it up. Yes I could drop them but my inventory is fully maxed so sometimes I miss items in there that just waste spots for who knows how long.

    I think the things above are common sense and things that Nexon should seriously look into to make this game smoother and make more sense and be more fluid.

    I remember you did.
    I just wanted to make sure that Nexon doesn't think the V inventory size increase is a solution to the problem.
    Thanks for responding.

    Look.

    There's a difference between what you WANT and what you NEED.

    You don't NEED 50 chairs. No one is going to rotate sitting on 50 chairs every day of their life. No one NEEDS 30 damage skins. No one is going to change their damage skin to something different every day of every month. No one NEEDS 5 EQUIPs for every part of their body when they can only hold one. It's just absurd.

    I know you like to collect things. But why make the servers laggy by forcing Nexon to increase your inventory by 20x? Do you WANT opening your inventory to cause as much of a lag spike as opening your Quest list, or opening the Smithing tab? If you want to know what you've collected, keep track in a spreadsheet in your own computer. Throw away the things you don't need. Heck, maybe you could even GIVE some of your items to your friends, or even strangers ("WHAT? GIVE THINGS? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?").

    The fact is, no one needs more than 50 chairs, 30 damage skins, 100 equips, etc. Sure, an increase would be nice. But an increase causes more lag when you open your inventory. Is it really worth it?

    Don't get me wrong. I like to collect stuff too. I'm all for 20-chair bags and increasing soul shards to 20 per instead of 10 per. But I throw things away when I get a full inventory. That's just part of the game. Keep what you need, throw what you don't.

    All of their things are untradeable, they literally cannot give any of it away even if they wanted to.
    That was the whole point of making this thread, because there's a lot of things they would like to keep but can't move to a mule or anything because it's untradeable. So yes, I honestly believe they NEED that inventory space. Just because you aren't that big of a collector doesn't mean they aren't. Collecting is pretty common now days, in game and in real life. Are they in the wrong for wanting to collect more, and participate in more events?

    There is indeed a clear difference between want and need -- and if you've read this entire thread, and Invulgo's thread, then you'd see how much they need that extra inventory space. They've even given alternatives to increasing the inventory size (such as bags) so it doesn't lag, so I don't understand why you're complaining.

    The game has a lot more items than it did when it first came out, and the fact that untradeable chairs, equips, etc are even a thing makes it hard to NOT have a full inventory if you would like to collect things.

    You know what else I don't NEED?
    I don't NEED to play MapleStory.
    I want to.
    It's a game. It's for enjoyment.
    I don't enjoy throwing stuff away.
    I'm far more likely to quit the entire game than to continually face the decision of what to discard to make room for new stuff.
    I've already stopped playing my main because that decision is more painful than whatever pleasure I get from playing it. I made a new secondary main on Reboot, but it's rapidly approaching the same condition. I won't make a third. If Nexon decides to make this game unfit for collectors, so be it.

    Whilst the Maple Leaf Council was in session, we had also completed and submitted a resolution on inventory slot expansion late October 2015. We had recognised that this was an important issue and yet it still has not been addressed.

    It's frustrating to see that requests on that bill had not been even read through but... I guess we can't do much about it.

    It is super frustrating.... There definitely needs to be more tools to improve storage space as well...

    Similar to other suggestions. Bigger bags or allow more than 1 bag to be used. Imagine 96-chair bags, instant solution

    yes we have way too much, even the events that need us to hold stuff in set-up for 1 hour and etc. then there are the many titles from events. I think solution should be a totally new storage place JUST FOR EVENTS, like how theres 1 JUST FOR CS. make 1 JUST FOR EVENTS that way we can go back and visit our memories

    Bump!

    I just want to add-on that Nexon should add an Extra NPC that allowed us players to store untradeable items (Similar to normal Storage) but for that specific character only. I feel like our treasure should be keep in private sometimes.. rather than sharing/transfer to multi mules... <_< if you catch my drift.

    This way, it will save their times opening up more way to unclogging our inventory and allowed us have our own personal bank! (That isn't shared to other same classes/category).

    My set up tab:

    Aside from the JM's DJ booth chair, all of those are untradeable. And I don't want to throw them out. Why? Because I played my *** off getting most of those. I collected feathers and event coins, I finished questlines and achievements.... THAT is literally part of MY maple history.

    You know what I do everyday when I get on the game? I find tradeable versions of those chairs that I can afford. Just so I can still keep the memory after I've thrown the untradeable chair out. Everytime I go on my mule and see the planet chairs, I thank the Nexon gods they made those tradeable within account because I spent days mastering that stupid JQ just to get one of the chairs.

    This is a decade old game, man. There's lots of history here. We celebrate the anniversary and we look back on the past. Maple bandanas have the sh*ttiest of stats but people still want them. It's because of the memories, the history. I get all this want vs. need stuff, believe me I get it. I'm unfunded as hell because this game falls under the "wants" pile. All we're asking for is a solution to unclog our inventories without sacrificing our history.

    You don't want lag? Neither do we. Then we can just cross off lag-inducing solutions off the list. Telling us to just toss our stuff out is just... not helpful. There's clearly better solutions.

    - Introduce a bag to store projectiles (e.g. throwing stars, arrows)
    - In addition to increasing inventory space with the V update, increase the size of bags (e.g. 12 slot herb/mineral bag, pink coin purse, recipe 8-slot bag, 8-slot soul bag, etc.)
    - Add a UI for chairs/titles

    They'd solve the issue in a heartbeat if they made a medal collection for chairs and titles. It would need to function that any chair you gain into your inventory is registered, unlike the medal collection where earned medals register but purchased(event shops) medals don't.

    That would only solve the Setup inventory tab.

    Bigger bag sizes, no bag limit, all untradeable items be movable within account w/o a sharing tag, bigger and tabbed storage/bank, the ability to move/store bags with contents << How about all of these combined? :D
