Quiver slots

Would it be possible to have the first quiver slot psuedo-inscribe to @f1 instead of @f0? The "0" key is far from the "1".

Re: Quiver slots

I'd like to make a slightly different suggestion: f0 should autoinscribe to the worst(cheapest) ammo, and f1, f2, etc should correspond to the best ammo, in descending order, as they do now. This would make result in the worst ammo having 2 numbers (ie f6 and f0). I often find myself wanting to shoot my cheapest ammo and the number for it keeps changing as I run out of ammo stacks and pick new stacks up.

Re: Quiver slots

That's not a bad idea, but one problem... If ammo is branded, it's not obvious which is 'worst' or 'best'. No point in wasting fire-branded ammo against a red dragon. Might want to use slay-animal ammo with low +bonuses against a Hydra, but not against an orc unique.

Re: Quiver slots

Well, whatever the criteria already in place for numbering ammo is (probably vendor price?), it would be most intuitive for the good ammo numbering to commence at 1 rather than 0. Having f0 be the worst ammo (often +0, +0) makes sense and would be convenient for killing non-dangerous ranged targets cheaply.
