Digger slot

Is there a way you can set the game up so that there is a special slot for a shovel, and the shovel is used to dig if you have on equipped? So we can use shovels without having to swap out a weapon.

Re: Digger slot

Usually by the time I want to do any serious digging my STR is up enough that walls aren't an issue. Between STR tunneling, Stone to Muds and such I haven't bothered with a digger in ages.

Re: Digger slot

The big problem is that it would completely upset game balance.  Adding a shovel slot would means more equipment space that could be used to boost stats, speed, and resistances.   

I know many players have recorded macros to make digging simple.  You can inscribe the shovel with @w1 or something like that, and your main weapon with @w0.  Then you can record a macro that switches to the shovel, repeats the dig command until successful, and then switches back to the main weapon.
