Yeah, I haven't looked into what controls our ability to carry stuff... I'm assuming it's the stamina setting, but that's just a guess.
Inventory control has been the bane of RPG players from the days of paper and pencil games.... there's a reason why tartus style (bigger on the inside than outside) bags are so popular in D&D style games... imagine in real life if you were carrying around 3 full sets of iron armour while going deeper into the dungeon looking for more loot to sell....
One thing I haven't quite got yet (have to look at the controls page to figure it out I guess... ) is how to bring up a proper status page... I know I was running around diseased for quite some time last night before running into some clerics who kindly healed me, and had a couple of NPCs tell me that I didn't look too good, but pulling up that info on the PC controls wasn't intuitive enough for me to stumble across it.
Grab a follower and load him/her up.Yeah... tardis, and no... I'm not going to blame my poor / incorrect spelling on autospell. I just buggered it up.
I double checked, and yeah, it's stamina which increases your carrying capacity by 5 lbs each time.
