Exclamation Default quiver order not optimal for packing multiple ammunition types

V default ordering of quiver is based on some sort of least base damage for the wielded launcher. Yet this ordering does not generally produce optimal packing of ammunition types to minimize inventory slots.

Only the first ten quiver slots (0--9) are allowed to mix into quiver slots of 40 each. Beyond the first ten slots, different ammunition no longer mix even when each type is less than 40 each. Reordering the quiver slots for shooting purposes does not reorder the quiver slots for optimal packing of mixed ammunition.

Optimal packing is not an easy combinatorial optimization. So there should be an option for the user to reorder all the quiver slots.

You may well be right, but I still offer this alternate solution: don't try to carry more than 400 (!) missiles at a time.

Worst case you only carry ten. Even so, I think it works good enough by now
