Any 'container' equipment - backpack, sack, scroll case etc, displays as the first part of it's description, the total weight of it's contents, and then a list of the actual items contained within.
If the container is empty however, we merely get the superfluous description '0 lbs'.
For empty containers, can this description be omitted please? it's a very minor space saver, but does make empty containers stand out (or perhaps that's the intent?).
There's an argument that that weight displayed should include the weight of the container itself (a backpack weighs 2 lbs) so it's easier to calculate my new weight if I drop the backpack (currently have to add the backpack weight to the contents weight to manually recalculate during the game...)
Removed the display of contents for empty containers
Subversion revision 25541.
For the change you proposed regarding adding the container's weight to the display, I suggest you start a discussion on the pcgen_experimental Yahoo! Group. It certainly sounds like a reasonable suggestion.
