Here's my suggestion to improve the inventory search system!
Take a look. see if u can find the Average Firewood in my inventory!

If u have keen eyes, maybe you saw it. but chances are it took u a little while. and thats a 1x2 item. if it was 1x1 it would be even harder, even when highlighted.
How do we make it better? simple! take a look at this photoshopped image i made!

so much better! with a black overlay on all items that don't match the description, it suddenly makes it much easier to find whatever item i want in my cluttered inventory!

    This is a good idea, but i would suggest you to change the interface color to something darker, because that greenish interface color does really blend in with white item highlight. Oh and also you should make your inventory more organized, it's so messy. Just a suggestion xD

    I never ever use the search feature because of exactly this reason. In your case I found it very easy to spot the average firewood, but usually it's not so easy.

    One suggestion from me though: I would prefer if this system would highlight the cell in question in an even more distinct matter, by making the cell's color that the item is on in a color contrastive to the item itself. Because if in this case you were searchinig for a pure black/white item, you could still have trouble finding it. That's just me though.

    it's true. after posting this i changed my interface to electric gray, and it is substantially easier to find stuff, but it's still not as intuitive as i wish it was. i originally got the idea from how World of Warcraft does it:

    and even on their black background it helps a ton.

    As someone who does use the darker background already, I still support this. Can we also remove the case sensitivity of the search?
