Hence my new Examine Floor Stack addon. Now you can simply right-click on a object or pile of objects on any grid you can see and choose "Examine objects on floor" from the map menu, which will bring up a slightly modified pick-up-from-floor dialog (specifically, modified so that you can't pick things up ). Since the dialog is otherwise unmodified, it should work seamlessly with other addons that modify dialogs in this area, including Enhanced Object Compare.

Code: Select all
Superload: mod.dialogs.MapMenu: generateList() [to add "Examine object(s) on floor" action as appropriate]
