    It'd be interesting to develop the flashlight system we have further, but a lot of people don't like losing the valuable Misc slot to use a flashlight sound.

    Can we look at adding a slot for flashlights? In terms of GUI I think something like the below would be fitting, but let me know what you think? I don't think it'd hurt. Also makes Equip items symmetrical again :)

    This is pretty simple to implement so I see no issues with it from a technical perspective. Internally, it already occupies their own, hidden slot which prevents more than one flashsound being equipped.

    In principle, I'm in agreement with it being its own slot - I'll let @Teddi weigh in.

    I don't really have an issue with this, I suppose the only thing to consider is it worth having it as an item slot vs its own (entirely) standalone system

    I guess we want to try and send people to one location to equip stuff rather than multiple, to me it makes sense there, ultimately it'd be interesting to see what we could do with it i.e. colours as well as sounds.

    Might seem a small addition but I know it'll be well used, thank you.

    Got a bunch of new flashlight sounds lined up for this weekend when we're doing a small update, if people have specific suggestions feel free to message me or post in this thread, usual rules of .ogg and <1.5 seconds apply.
