About this mod

Disables (toggle) automatic pickup of items from the ground.

Permissions and credits
Disables (toggle) automatic pickup of items from the ground. When enabled, the mod displays a "hand" icon to the left of your current Gold amount.
You can bind a Key to toggle on/off this option in the mod config file. Default Key is CapsLock.

Imagine that your backpack and storage chests are all full and you want to free up some slots on your belt to work on some project. You drop several items on the ground that you plan to pick up and use later. But they immediatily or after a stepping next to them fly back to your inventory, and you have to drop them again.

This mod solves this problem! You can turn off automatic items pickup until you really need it. And then you can walk around items on the ground without worrying about them jumping back into your belt!
