Type of Suggestion:
Script

Explanation of your Suggestion:
The ability to Repack magazines.

A wheel-menu option + UI similar to Prospecting, this option will only appear if there are half-spent magazines inside of your Clothes/Vest.

Drop-down options would depend on if it detects half-spent magazines of different calibers.
Progress bar lasting 15-20 seconds.
Mathematical calculations dictate how many full and partial magazines the player receives back.

Ex.
5 Full Magazines(30) and 3 Partial Magazines(12, 15, 22).
  • Player initiates repacking and selects magazine name via drop-down UI.
  • 15-20 second Progress Bar...
  • Progress Bar Complete, begin calculations...
    • Magazine 1(12) + Magazine 2(15) = 27
    • Magazine 3(22) + 27 = 49, this exceeds hard-cap(30) therefore...
      • Magazine 3(22) - 3 = 19
      • 27 + 3 = 30
        • Magazines 1 and 2 become One Full Magazine.
        • Delete Magazines 1 and 2 and spawn new Full Magazine in their place inside the player's clothing/vest dependent on free storage capacity.
    • Magazine 3 now has 19 bullets remaining.
      • Delete Magazine 3 and spawn 1 Partial Magazine with 19 bullets in it's place inside the player's clothing/vest dependent on free storage capacity.
  • Done.

Why are you suggesting this?
No one wants to carry around multiple half-spent magazines, nevertheless would want to enter an engagement with them. You'd want to have as many full magazines as possible to ensure you don't suddenly run dry when you need firepower the most.

Im fairly certain there is a mod/addon out there already which allows you to do this and is built into the arma inventory UI.

Huge QoL but would also be a pain to make and how much of a improvement would it make is debatable especially with how cheap mags are imo

Situation dictates whether you can afford to leave where you are to restock vs. repacking and having more higher capacity mags available for longer durations of fire.

Hello Thomas,

Thank you for your suggestion. In the next update, Version 3.6.0, players will have the ability to re-pack partial magazine via the E-Menu. Thank Winston for his service.
