I fully understand, that the game is pretty old. But it is still very nice and currently I do my first run in it.
I have also installed a FCR mod and started playing on the 4th level of difficulty (FCR gives an "easy" pack of three difficulties, and a "hard" pack with also three, so I'm in a hard). That's why I need to use alchemy a lot. That's why I have faced a problem that an alchemy interface is very inconvenient to use.
For example, I never know how many and which potions I can currently create. I need to find a fire or a bed, start meditation, go to alchemy mode, and only then I'll see a list of potions I can create (and still not the count of each kind of them).
Is there any way to fix this? I searched for mods on Nexus, and the only usefull thing for this I have found is Better Color Coding mod.
Maybe I do miss anything in a game? Or a carefull study of player's inventory is the only way for my issue?
