Think of that: The belt you wear to keep your pants in place is not necessarily like the belt that holds your tools, in some cases people can and will wear both.
*insert whynotboth meme here*

- Just add a new slot for utility only!
- normal belt only in existing normal belt slot
- utility "belt" only in utility slot
- utility slot could also be used for other things, like a harness:
+ climbing harness with maybe even a bonus to climbing and space for climbing tools: rope, flasks, yet to come climbing stuff, ...
+ "military" / hunting harness with space for additional weapons, ammunition, flasks, antidotes,...
(so you don't need to store that in pockets and can still port with an otherwise empty inventory!)
+ your usual toolbelts
+ whatever more you can think of
+ there could be, again, all harnesses in 3 tiers like toolbelts/tools

This could further be aimed at certain "areas", meaning, you keep your usual toolbelt when doing work in and around your home, or even still when going for a little forage,
whereas hunting/pvp, climbing/exploring, ... would recommend preparing yourself with a proper harness, though it not being necessary. And there is no severe disatvantage by not having/equipping one.
Further I would say: don't just make a harness or special belt for every profession or occasion where it might fit, but try to separate it a bit in the way of "areas" as described above, so you dont have to manually switch stuff just because you went from mining to woodworking to weaving to cooking...


I actually really like this idea :)

Also if you want to compare it to RL this is more or less what the case is with real tool belts

Edit. Also from a dev side this should be much easier to implement also it opens up a lot of possibility for future growth in this area.
BUT as a game dev myself I know sometimes its just simplest to do things the way you mentally planed them in the first place
I say do whichever you see fit JC :)

Small patch soon. 1.2 continues to have issues as the scope got a bit out of control.

This is my first patching experience. How long does the server usually go down for?
